    Re: Rear Coil Springs

    Maybe someone can pull from this for you. Unless you are looking for brand new in which case, custom made is always an option.

  5. Re: Toyota Van Front Heater/AC Blower - Revisited!

    I would agree. If pulling the fan to investigate, best to at least have a new one available. Of course, the resistor is far easier to replace and cheaper too. I bought two from Amazon a while back...

    Check your pcv valve and crankcase vent hoses to see if they are plugged. The manual says 36-71 psi at operating temperature. I'd say your oil pressure is fantastic. Do you know what viscosity oil...

    Re: Blown Head Gasket?...OR is it?

    Pitting would not cause that. If you are not drawing coolant back in you either have a faulty cap or a leak in the system somewhere.

    Per Tim's link in post #2 of this thread as well as the thread title, that is the correct part number. That's a pretty darn good price too.

  32. Re: Refreshing the engine (rebuild and aftermath)

    You could pull the distributor and rig up a shaft to turn the oil pump driveshaft with a drill and do the same thing. This is common practice to prime new or rebuilt engines prior to initial startup.
