that was on the starter more clutch material in the bottom of the bell housing. And that is where I call it for the night because it's really wet under the truck

Somebody overheated there clutch.  :outtahere:
When the clutch becomes temp critical  :flamer: (Clutch) the glue holding the clutch fibers together starts to melt, and poof. All the fibers fly off the little metal portion of the disc.  :therethere:

Ya. It didn't help that the clutch had been slipping for a few months now. I told myself I was going to run it till it blew up. But I already have a Marlin 1600lb clutch and a flywheel ready to go on. I would of finished it last night if it was dry but after tearing the trans out laying on the floor I was miserable.

Hey you should try the additional step grind that Marlin recommend on the flywheel.  It even helps on lousy clutches.

Would you care to elaborate a little on the grind? Your referring to the duel surface correct? this right?

I'd suggest replacing the rear main seal before you put the clutch back in. And don't forget to oil it.

Yes sir! Though my first thought when I saw it was that in negative -10* that we've had where I live it is going to freeze the crap out of my hand. But it's still gonna go on! I'll just have to get thicker gloves
Any one have any advice about how to stab the trans in? Anything other then  screw with if till you get it?

Its really just that. Gonna have to change the angle on it while pushing in. Rocking it side to side. Also rotate the splines using the rear output as well.

One nice trick is to find a couple extra long bolts the same size as the larger sized bell housing to block bolts and cut the heads off.  You can thread a couple of these in and they act like extra long alignment pins.  Then when you get a couple of the real bolts in you can take these out by hand.

It still requires squaring everything up and a bit of swearing but it makes it a lot easier to get things together.

Alright. It's done. I also replaced the shifter seat and cup. Also had to adjust the master cylinder and bleed the clutch. It's really weird having everything so stiff all of a sudden. And boy is that clutch a work out

got this thing installed last night. thanks again knucklebuster! Then I went to a buddies house with some friends to dd for them, and my dumb ass left my lights on! I've done it quite a few times now.... So I've decided I'm going to dummy proof it so I can't do it again. That will probably get done when I install the sr5 tach and altimeter cluster. Fingers crossed I don't break any dash components since last time I took one of these dashes out it didn't fair too well. Thank god I don't have to put that dash back in with that project! because who need interior anyway?

So I rotated my tires today and peeked at my front breaks, they  are getting low not metal on metal yet but I think I'd like to upgrade them well I'm at it. I've been looking between 3rd gen and t100 both with a 1inch master. Any one have any opinions on one over the other?? This is where I've gotten most of my info so far http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/35037-How-to-Upgrade-your-1st-Gen-Toyota-4Runner-Brakes

In my build thread you'll find where I utilized the Front Range Offroad bracket to upgrade to 3rd gen 4Runner brakes. They are great. I also did the IFS hub swap at the same time. Highly recommend going this route.

I suppose I should of mentioned that I still have ifs. Sorry 'bout that. But your referring to these right? I've been trolling through LCE's, FROR's and Marlin's sites looking for a "kit" and the only thing I've really found is Marlins caliper and rotor combo: https://www.marlincrawler.com/brake/brake-combos/brake-caliper-and-rotor-combo I believe those are 3rd gen calipers correct? I'd like to get stuff that will work on a solid axle if I chose to go that route. (Though that will probably only happen if a axle falls in my lap for next to nothing. Can't say I foresee that happening though)

I highly recommend just getting your calipers and rotors through your local Autozone. Going to cost you less. Don't get me wrong I'm all about supporting Marlin but his cost doesn't give you any money back for cores so is quite a bit more.

Well for the first time in a few weeks I had time to work on my truck today on somethings that's weren't  mandatory but did I do any of that? Nooooo. Instead I built myself a welding/work table! the table isn't complete just yet but it's usable. I'm going to add some casters to it so I don't have to heave it around when I want to move it. I also picked up some of the components I'm going to need for my triple stick set up. That will be a project to do over the next few days if I don't make it up to the mountains to go snowboarding.
