    Where you at? I have tried a bit to find a block and not many listed for sale. I am doing my own rebuild. I am not a mechanic by trade but do all my own work to save$$$$.

    You answered a question I put out on my 88 4runner about firing with no coil wire. Could it be feeding back thru the ignition switch?

    Good Morning,
    I have a question if you don't mind me asking - In this post: https://www.yotatech.com/f2/front-pa.../#post51586876 you mentioned about the brake cable breaking right at the handle of the parking brake lever...

    This just happened with my '88 2wd . I stopped by my friendly auto mechanic I know the owner of (not an actual toyota dealer, try not to go there first for some things as I'm pretty financially challenged) and we went to look up a part to replace it, and were unsure about the mechanism on the fire wall in the engine compartment - does it come apart to allow for easy replacement of the cable... (kinda like a bicycle cable or something similar) I haven't torn it apart but from what I could tell, and those guys at the garage all thought its just snapped right at the handle just as yours.
    Any advice you could lend would be greatly appreciated; I actually made an account to send this message seeking some sort of help.

    Hey wild man, very long time no speak! Well, a mudding trip out shooting was the last enjoyable send off to my old 3.0 motor. I knew I could get some more life out of her till her dying day. Yup, I hydrolocked it in a puddle that was deeper than it looked. Was damn near a lake. Sucked it in and bent a rod sooooo..........the swap truly begins.

    You staying warm up there??

    You have 4 Toyotas from the 80's! You are a man worthy of my admiration! I have an 87 4runner myself and once I move to my next base I am hoping to pick up an early 80's pickup.

    Thanks, Wyoming. still learning how to use this site! Reply to your info RE: 'Rebulid' lo compression issue.Had it rebuilt by 1 man shop,was referr NOT good choice... Guy had lang problems(spoke spanish), cussed if I asked questions. Not sure did a rebuild before! Got it back, & had broken transmission cable in the take out or?
    Wouldn't go into 3rd gear. +Lots of other problems; Throttle position sensor, broken cable, etc. Back w/MY trusted mechanic & transmission guy, for THREE months. Originally,drove fine, 75,000 miles, 1st Tune-up: 170 comp. took short trip (400 miles)was shocked to see used 2 qts oil no leak, so guess it burned it. Bad advice, huh? to get the Great Engine rebuilt! Everyone says,Timing/ not getting enough power. Could be a tooth got moved on the Cam chain?, Throttle pos. sensor & throttle brand new now. Coach is 'Sweet'- extremely well taken care of, clean & cozy. New computer, maybe. Ideas, ANYONE? Does it take mor 1,000 miles for new rings to seat? T.
