    Re: '89 Master Ace Radio/Speaker Replacement

    That is directly behind the center dash vents. So it's just a big air duct.

  10. Re: Transmission oil vs Differential oil, 87 Toyota Van 4wd

    Do you happen to know what size crush washer to use? I'm assuming it's the same for the front and rear diff, transfer case, and transmission since it's a 24 mm head for all of them. Would prefer to...
