I remember a 22re oil pump drive spline as being completely smooth inside except for the keyway groove, so not sure what you're referring to with the different steps and holes inside it. You might...

Generally yes. The machine shop should resize the big end (for the bearings on the crank) and push in new pin bushings for the wrist pins. You can also buy a set that's been machined and it might be...

It could be both engine oil and gear oil from the transmission. The front input shaft seal and/or seal housing gasket like to leak oil after so many years and miles. The clutch fork boot swells and...

I agree with scope and in addition, go ahead and check the throttle cable, linkage and butterfly valve for smoothness of operation as well. They're all common sources of a sticking idle. I just...

As you suspect, it just depends on who built it and how much time they spent. If I were to build another one to the same standards as mine, I'd trust it completely but I was able to throw $2k and 3...

If it were me, I'd pass on that one for a few reasons. Aftermarket lights are useful but often wiring is badly hacked to make them work. It's repainted which isn't a deal breaker and you might even...

Is it pinging when you fill with regular? A healthy, stock 22re runs as good or better on 87 octane as it does on anything else. Jumper the diagnostic port to put it in base timing mode and set your...

Nope, you're all good. A transmission jack is just to stabilize it during removal or reinstall so it doesn't tip or roll off the jack. The front of a w56 doesn't weigh that much, I could lift the...

The prices vary widely. Depends so much on where you live and the type of shop, and of course how much work it needs. They'll test for leaks and check for flatness and let you know how bad off it is....

You can use a jackstand, a scissor jack, really anything that's the correct height and can hold the weight. A stack of lumber or even a round of tree trunk will do the job just fine.

My '85 is also a manual so not sure the correct way to remove a crank bolt on yours. Bump starter method should still work (in neutral) but I'll let others with real-world experience take over from...

Removing the pan on an '85 is easy compared to IFS trucks, jack up the front of the frame real high to let the axle hang down. Since you're pulling the timing cover, it's smart to give the pan a new...

My advice is to remove the lower halves of the engine mounts while you try and wiggle them back together. It's just a 14mm bolt and nut on each side. You'll probably need to raise and lower the front...

Crawl underneath and look at how they connect, it's a bolt on bottom and another bolt or nut on top. Spray pb blaster or similar on all the hardware a couple days before you try to remove them.

Is your engine bay very clean? If not, I recommend spraying some engine degreaser and hosing it off (cover distributor and fuse box with plastic bags)

Then get an engine inspection mirror and a...

Makes sense to me. I band-aid fixed mine and it lasted another 3 years until it died a horrible death and needed fully rebuilt. You probably know it can handle tons of abuse, so just keep a watch out...

The threading pitch is the same 8x1.25mm that's used all over your truck. The length is around 20mm, but that's just from memory. Just go to the dealer, hardware stores are such a rip-off for metric...

I agree with fishguy, that gasket is too damaged. You could try to rtv it back together and if you're lucky it'll hold, but will drip oil from that broken corner forever and you'll hate yourself for...
