Always sucks having to tear engines down because you "have to". But at least its back together and ready to go.

So other than Helipilots awesome efforts ive done nothing to this rig since September last yr.
I have been planning some changes to it though and i think i may have gone a little farther than i was orginally planning.....

That one has a different part number and has an extra pin that the first gen version is missing. I think it would work though. It would certainly plug right in. I am guessing the extra pin is an additional ground.

I have that 2WD 1980 parts truck out at a guys farm.  Let me check that.  I would love to give you the exact one if I have it.  If not I'll send this anyway.

Where is it located in the 1st gen?

Went and pulled the 1980 relay at lunch and it is different yet!  I will be sending you the 1984 relay shortly.  You'll have to let us know if it works for future reference.

Thanks H8PVMNT that seems to have fixed it. I don't know what that extra pin was for but it is working just fine. Thanks.  :thumbs:

Well I don't know. After Zippo and I ghost rode it down his driveway she is in need of some repairs before her debut. The replacement panels are on and the paint has been ordered.

I already got some marlin parts to put on her.
Even though it is a Toyota and is 4wd, I am afraid if I start a build thread on here I might get banned for posting about a "car".

All I can say about the ghost ride is, I'm sure I looked like an idiot running after this things in flip flops as is rolled down my overly steep driveway landing in some bushes across the street. I would have never guessed that strap would have broke and it would have bounced over the wheel chock.
If you see it, its for sale.

Every time i think about you chasing it down the driveway i fall apart laughing.
Its steep! Park brake only just holds on old blue

You could put it in the tow rig section.  Or maybe yoterhomes if you slept in it under the bridge.

No it doesn't. It has the inclinometer, but the tercels had a 4wd indicator in the place where the 4runners had the altimeter.
