I believe the tacoma pump has a restrictor with 2 smaller holes next to each other. On my FJ60 I swapped that style restrictor for the earlier single hole version and it worked fine. I'm not sure if you can do that with the Tacos or not.

Got mine at Napa. But it was a pain to get the guy to believe me that, that size really is a real tape size, i finale had to tell him to just let me see the box of taps they had and ya they had it. good luck

Finished it all up today. Seems to work. I locked it up and did a 10 point turn around in the shop. I steered easy. My only concern is clearance between the ram and the oil pan. 2-3 inches!!!! Does any one have the same clearance and know it isn't a problem? I don't want to lift it any more. Might have to come up with a bump stop.

Mine is about that close, I compared it to my tie rod and drag link and their clearance to make sure it would not hit. I have not had it off road yet but i do not think it will

What motor do you have?
I know with the 3.0 V6 some people have to swap out there oil pan with a 2wd T100 oil pan and sump to get the clearance they need. Im not sure were i saw the thread might have been on pirate. ill look for it.

Found it in the (TOYOTA BIBLE FAQ 2.0-on pirate 4x4) that is one of the most helpful places you can look for any question.

I used 2'' I/D spuare toobing and fish mouthed it to clearance it for swiveling

1/4'' plate for the other end

clearance to oil pan


I flexed it

and found out that the tie rod on the pitman arm hits the leaf spring at full compression.

I built some bump stops after I put away the camera.

Tried it out today. I ran it hard all day at Browns Camp. It steered great. The only thing I wasn't happy about was that the pump whines now. I lost my drain plug on the front diff on a rock. The best I can figure is that I must of left it loose a couple runs ago. Any way I found the plug and put it back in and borrowed a bottle of gear lube.

Very good post! This was not getting any action in the other spot so I thought I would post here to.  I ended up with to boxes do to not reading completely. The 1st one I have not been able to get it back together do to them little balls gerr it got me drinking. The 2nd one I got it done and installed yahoo!  I read some where that some one took two stock reservoir's cut the bottom off one and the top off the other cleaned them out and welded them together I have it plumped in I don't think something is wright I have so much pressure that it comes out the bottom of the cap so I took the reservoir out and connected the steering box to the pump and did not have that problem of high pressure but when I shut the engine off it over flows out of the top of the power steering pump even thoe there is hardly next to nothing in the psp before I shut it down. O a little insight to what I have  82/83 toy pickup with a Chevy 283 stock steering pump toy steering box and a 2X8 ram . I might of left something just ask ! Iam open to any ideas .
some day Ill fill out all my info...

This should be some help. This diagram is is for a remote reservoir, but it helps as to where the lines from the box go. Hope it helps.

lol i have been there, use thick grease and cover the balls in it (get your mind out of the gutter) and slowly put them back in, one at a time and let the next ball put the previous. use a lot of grease and it wont be a pain. then slowly screw the shaft into the balls. :biggthumpup:  that sounded so bad lol
