    Re: Runs nice and cool without thermostat

    Subscribing for the info that will follow. My thermostat typically shows a temperature range much like your open/missing thermostat reading.

    Re: Windshield Washer Nozzles

    Huge PITA!
    Those nozzles are the worst! When I had my van repainted, I told the painter 3 times to "not mess up the nozzles." I went as far as to put a ring of epoxy around the base of them so they...

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    I really despise people being anonymous cops like that. They just don't understand that we are dealing in semi precious and rare parts!
    Anyone that has seen parts disappear at this rate would know...

    Re: Battery hold down brackets

    Well, in the spirit of constant tinkering, I ended up cutting down the J hooks to 8" and used the adjacent hook holes in the pan. This way the J hooks aren't at a steeper angle, the hold down is...

    Re: Datsun Nissan 280z wheels? 5 of them

    Those are cool! No hub covers?
    I had a set of 79/80 280ZX 5 spoke wheels on my 1st TV. Looked great.
    These are on my radar. It's only a few hour's drive south.

    Re: Battery hold down brackets

    Installed my bracket today!
    I got 10" J hooks, but cut them down to 9" to fit perfectly on my 75/86 group battery on a 1" riser.

    Re: Battery hold down brackets

    I'm probably going to paint the bracket when I paint the rusty hub covers I found a couple weeks ago.
    Would you recommend rubberizing or using a rubber gasket on the bracket?

    Re: Battery hold down options?

    That's awesome, thank you for doing this! My Paypal or Venmo account is warmed up!
    If I made one, it would be rather raw, as I don't have proper metal working tools. I would probably use a piece of...

    Re: Hot start problem! Starter wont turn...

    My van does the exact same thing in regards to the starter not turning after a hot drive. I thought it may be hot soak, but perhaps the new starter I put in a couple years ago is not all that..?

    Re: Battery hold down options?

    The battery box is about 13" wide at the bottom, I'm guessing a 12" piece of iron drilled out and a pair of 10" J hooks cut to the needed length will work.

    Re: Battery hold down options?

    My 75/86DT battery fits really snug in the tray, but still has a lot of room on the short sides. It's the same width as a 25, but it snugs up better for depth and is not as tall as a 25, as I used...
  13. Re: Urgent need for advice on space van wheels (OEM and alternate rims)

    I had a set of 1981 280ZX 6 spoke alloys on my 87 2WD Cargo. They worked great with the standard sized 195 75R14 tires. Think they were 6" wide with +12 offset and a 70ish mm center bore.
    I'll try...

    Re: Battery hold down options?

    Very cool. I'm picking up a larger 75 battery today and will see what I can make work for a hold down. Didn't consider the angular approach, that's why I love this place!

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    Is the battery hold down still available? Also curious if the small, square plastic "+" box (in the engine compartment next to the air filter) is available, too.

    Battery hold down options?

    Anyone have a suggestion on a battery hold down?
    Ordered one from Toyota Parts Deal only to cancel the order as they said the top bracket was not available.
    I'll be poking around the shop looking...
