Question:While pulling the engine, I had to cut one of the water tubes attached to the underside other plenum. It's molded with curves. I can splice it with copper tubing and hose clamps, but I'd rather replace it. Toyota dealer says some of those hoses have been discontinued. I will have to visit my dealership to find out.Have any of you guys used aftermarket straight tubing? My concern is that the straight rubber tubing will kink trying to make the bends?Any comments will be appreciated.Thanks,Gnarls.
I would call 22re Performance.
I've used plumber copper elbows and the brass pex elbows for coolant hose bends................
Gnarly, are you talking about the metal tube that goes along the engine or the rubber flex hose? if the rubber flex hose I used straight hose with no problems in place of the molded one because I didn't have the money to replace it it with a molded one.
My power steering gear box is leaking. Has anyone had success with a repair? Or should I bite the bullet and buy one??? My engine rebuild piggy bank is almost empty.... I'm digging into both couches for any lost change!! Gnarls.
I thought they were supposed to leak.....
My butt dyno convinces me it's worth it to the point that every 22re owner i meet, I'm basically being them to buy a $20 fan from the junkyard and do the conversion.I'm in-between permanent wiring solutions on it due to lack of time, so i have to hook mine up manually, however, I've only had to connect the fan about 4 times this year. 3 times for wheeling, and once when I was stuck in Portland traffic crossing the i5 bridge. I have a $30 fan controller hooked up to it, and works great.It's not ideal, connecting it manually, but there seems to be better response, and quieter cold starts because the engine isn't turning the fan. Do it. I got my high speed fan from an 04 Honda civic. Best fan would be from a pt cruiser. $0.02 👊😎Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
Buying a kit isn't worth it..............But I use an electric fan...... Much cheaper to mix and match the parts and make your own 'kit'.The only thing I've ever noticed was the idle drop when the fan kicks on.
I did some very quick research...The LCE fan kit specs the fan at 1585 CFM.If the PT Cruiser is a good choice, the last year production was 2005. If I find 2005 in a boneyard, the fan will be 11 to 12 years old. Is that a good idea? Or should I look for a 1600 CFM fan that is from a newer vehicle?Is this the kind of controller I will need?http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/10560/10002/-1?CAWELAID=1710639487&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=15769068431&CATCI=aud-60736883591:pla-171299431271&catargetid=230006180003464298&cadevice=c&gclid=CObmn9Gcx84CFQaQaQodiNkLYgThanks,Gnarls.
.... There was no perceivable difference in power ...I found I didn't like the extra wiring and it wasn't that dependable. Ended up fiddling with it on the side of the road a few times. It just gave me one more thing that could kill my engine if it failed in the woods at low speed.
Here's a few options. Not sure what the difference is, but I'd get a controller with a probe instead of the one you found on jegs because then you don't have to get rid of your stock sensor, or figure out how to plumb in another sensor..http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/search/Cooling+Fan+Controller/01388/C0331.oap?year=1993&make=Toyota&model=Pickup&vi=1278008
Here's what I've got:http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/MRY0/35879/01388.oap?year=1993&make=Toyota&model=Pickup&vi=1278008&ck=Search_01388_1278008_-1&pt=01388&ppt=C0331I like it because I have it stabbed through my radiator right at the top where the coolant below the hose connection.There's a small dashpot on it that you have to setup manually, but it's really simple and easy to do. Just get everything installed, and start up your motor cold. You could use a temp gun, but I just looked at my stock temp gauge. Once the motor was warmed up, I slowly turned the dashpot until the relay turned the fan on, and left it there. The fan stays off until the temp rises.Another reason this is nice is because there's another input for your A/C compressor. I'm planning on connecting it to my 4x4 sensor so that whenever I'm in 4wd, the fan is forced on. I've never heard of anyone doing this before, but if anyone knows a reason not to connect it to the 4x4 light, lemme know.
