    Re: aisin water pump for 2c-t TownAce

    I used the WPT004 when I did the timing belt/water pump on my '88 Master Ace. No problems in the last couple of years that it's been in service.

    Not sure about your 2WD petrol van, but my 1988 4WD Masterace definitely had the load sensing valve.

    I believe that they are still available from Toyota. I think they were around $30 each last time I checked. Not sure what the P/N is though.

    Re: So how slow is everyones van?

    When I first purchased my van it was definitely pretty damn slow. Couple that with the stock "speed chime" and freeway cruising was mildly frustrating. My van serves as my main form of...

    Does your van have an automatic or manual transmission. I remember reading that only the auto's had EGR. I would be interesting in seeing pictures of what you did if you have any.
