UPDATE 12-13-17

I removed the rocker cover and took a few measurements.  Based on the measurements, I cannot see how the cover could make contact with anything under it.  The rockers sit about ¼” below the top of the head bolts, so the rockers cannot make contact with the inside of the cover.  The head bolts are the only parts closet to the top of the inside of the rocker and baffles. The width of the baffles is way narrower than where the head bolts are located.  So if anything could or would make contact with the inside of the cover, it would have to be the head bolts.  IF the cover contacted the top of a head bolt, it probably would make loud noise and would make some kind of mark at the contact point.  I examined the inside of my cover, there is NO evidence of any contact. :shakehead:

If you over-tightened the acorn nuts and was able to compress the molded cover gasket enough that the cover was contacting the head, as H8PVMNT pointed out, it would probably create an echo chamber for the rocker tick and timing chain, increasing the noise level. :thumbdown:

Both rubber ½ moons were leaking.  :headscratch:  Both had been installed about 200+ miles ago with Form-A-Gasket No2.  The Form-A-Gasket was brittle and hard, which surprised me, considering it’s specified application.  It seems the ½ moons could be better made and thicker and made to fit more snugly into their cradle in the head… but perhaps they are designed that way for a reason.  :dunno:

I cleaned the cover gasket, head where the ½ moons sit on the front and rear of the head with lacquer thinner. :D

This time I used Permatex Ultra Grey – by the way the application instructions suggest letting it dry for 24 hours.  I coated them well and installed them in the head. I noticed the thickness of the head is thinner than the width of the ½ moon groove, so I could move the ½ moon back and forth about 1/16 of an inch. The thin outside part that hugs both sides of the head wall wanted to flare out, so I squeezed it up against the head.  It also stuck up above the head about 1/8 of an inch as it sat in the cradle. Of course it compressed down when I lightly torqued acorn nuts down, and probably squeezes against the cradle. :blah:

The new Beck Arnley ½ moons were a tad bigger than the ones that came in the engnbldr's kit… BUT it may not be a fair comparison since they had months and mileage on them. :dunno:

The blue DNJ molded cover gasket seemed thinner and slippery compared to the BA. The BA gasket is thicker and when I compressed it into its groove it was way tighter fitting.  :yesnod:

I would like to see a Toyota gasket kit, and those billet aluminum ½ moons.  :gap:

I feel about 98% confident the oil leak was the rear ½ moon, allowing hot motor oil to drip down to bottom of the bell housing – and not the rear crankshaft seal.  The oil level was down about 1/3 of a quart.  :thumbs:

I will know more tomorrow afternoon after I test drive it again.  :driving:

I apologize for the novel and no photos. :disturbed:

Ok… I can’t stop overly analyzing.  I woke up this morning thinking too much.

I have listened to 3 22s (2 22RE’s and a 1985 22R) since 1986. I did a head job on the 22R.  I have had the rocker covers off and adjusted the valve lash more times than I care to remember.  My experience is limited to a Toy stock cam and head. 

I have a theory about the increase sound coming from the top of the head and rocker cover….  This rebuild has a head with over-sized valves and an aftermarket high torque cam profile, and the first time I have actually listened carefully to the sound it makes at idle.

I believe it seems logical there are several things working to create more sound and perhaps a slightly different sound.

1 – the extra mass of the larger valves hitting the valve seats.

2 – the cam profile that appears to produce more noise when the specified valve lash setting is not accurate.

3 – the overlap of this 261C cam profile may contribute to increase sound level during the exhaust event.

4 – the 261C’s increase in lift and duration over the stock cam may produce more sound generated from the rock rack.

5 -  the increase in compression from stock, causing an increase in combustion sound as the mixture is ignited.

Of course, there may be several other factors causing the increase sound level…

1 - I could be overly analyzing and the sound and what I’m hearing is perfectly normal for this specific rebuild and components.

2 – The rockers and shafts could be out of spec and excessively worn.  The Toyota factory rocker and shaft specs have a VERY tight tolerance spec – shaft diameter - .6287 to .6295.  That is only .0008” tolerance  8 10-thousandths of an inch!  And the shaft to arm oil clearance of .0006”.  So if the rockers and or shafts are out of spec, they would likely produce some clatter and added infamous rocker tick.

3 – the engine may quiet down after several thousand miles on break-in.

That’s just my opinion – it may be worthless.  :blah:

UPDATE:  12-15-2017

I drove the truck yesterday.  With not touching the gas pedal, it still takes 3 times on the starter to get it to start and it blubbers for a second until it comes up to a low idle.  I will work on that later.

Since re-adjusting the valve lash, the engine sounds more normal now with balanced rocker noise.

The engine has a very noticeable increase in throttle response.  Better torque and pull.  I drove it about 25 miles down the freeway at between 65 and 80 MPH.  It pulls very hard from 2000 to 4500 and revs quickly… right where I want the torque and power band.  I tach’d it to 5500 3 or 4 times in 1st gear.  It revs easily to 5000 RPM in 1st and 2nd gears.  In 3rd gear it is much slower at revving to 4,500 and it doesn’t pull hard after 4500 RPMs in 4th.  In 5th gear at 80 its at about 3150 RPMs and feels like it has plenty of torque to maintain speed even on a slight upgrade.  I’ll test that more later on a hilly highway.

Preliminary Conclusion:  Like andykrow experienced with his 261C, the valve lash adjustment on this cam profile must be critical in the 22RE.  A tighter valve lash will increase overlap and this 261C already has 5.5 degrees.  5.5 degrees is higher than most of the other cam profiles for 22RE by several other name brand suppliers.  The Toyota stock cam has 2.2 degrees of overlap.

As experienced by a guy who was testing camshafts in his 22RE reported back when I was first doing cam research for my 22R, he said that the 261C produced a lean fire condition, and felt this cam would be better in carb’d engine.  At that time, Ted at engnbldr said they had not seen that problem with the 261C cam in a 22RE. 

I am hearing a slight blubber in 1st gear at just off idle and up to about 2,000 RPM at minimal throttle. It’s not an ignition type miss, but more like AFR. It doesn’t bother me, since it goes away as soon as I hit the throttle. It may be something other than the cam, however, I suspect (just my speculation) that MammaECU may be having a problem with the overlap?  Like a big cam does in a V-8, it causes that bubbler at idle and makes that awesome potato–potato-potato lope, then at WOT it gets where it wants to go.

After the drive, I checked for oil leaks and I saw fresh drops of oil on the bottom of the bell housing!!  It may have been left over oil on the back side of the block caused by the previously leaking rear ½ moon… PLEASE BE THAT, and not the rear main seal!!

I’ll drive it to work today and check for leaks when I get home.

UPDATE:  12-15-17 PM

I crawled under the truck this afternoon after I got home. Drove it about 75 miles.

I’m SO bummed!!  There is oil coming out of the rubber boot around the clutch release arm.  I can’t think of how motor oil can get into the bell housing and then blow out that boot unless it is coming from the crank seal and running back down the input shaft, maybe onto the new clutch disc and pressure plate.

I can’t imagine how it could be the input shaft seal and housing gasket I just replaced.

So….  I think I will have to drop the tranny, remove the pressure plate and clutch disc, unbolt the flywheel and see how much the seal is leaking and replace it.  I suppose the seal housing could be leaking.  I was ultra careful with the gasket, sealant, and installing the crank seal and bolting the housing.  Of course there is the possibility I fubar’d the crank seal install and over-tightened the rocker cover…  but I don’t think so.  I believe you would have to work really hard to screw up a simple rubber crank seal install…. But perhaps my automotive mechanical skills have completely disappeared.

I don’t recall having a rocker cover gasket leak, grommets rupture, or the ½ moons leaking, or a rear crank seal leaking in any of the other two trucks I’ve worked on.  I don’t want to believe it’s a bad quality issue with the parts kit, but the more I go through these leaks and issues, the more I’m convinced what bestgen has repeatedly warned about.

IF the seal or gasket is leaking and I replace them with a Toyota or recommended name brand, and the leaks stop, I will want to have a serious conversation with engnbldr about the gasket kit I bought.

Based upon the condition of this truck, inside and out, I believe it is possible the odometer reading is accurate, and this truck and original engine had less than 150,000 miles on it when I ran it out of coolant in January 2013.

I won’t be able to drop the tranny until Sunday.

Yes, it is possible. 

The amount of oil leaking at the bottom of the bell housing before I discovered the rear 1/2 moon leak, was a constant drip as it sat idling after a drive, so it was leaking pretty good.  There could be residual oil still making its way out the inside of the bell housing.  AND.. if the rear main is and has been leaking then there should be fresh oil draining out the little rectangle hole at the center bottom of the bell housing.

The amount of oil I see now is less than a teaspoon, just a few drips.  I cleaned up all the oil up around the bottom of the bell housing after I test drove the truck on Wednesday.  I will clean up all the oil, and test drive it again.

I'm hoping for the best, and dreading the worst.

I used the original ones.

What is wrong with using the old flywheel bolts?  :dunno:

I've never bought new flywheel bolts and never had a flywheel come loose, shrink, shred, shrivel, rip, run, tear, snag, catch fire.... or dibble out the end!!  :moon:

I installed new pressure plate bolts.  :gap:

UPDATE  12-17-17 PM

I cleaned all the oil from bottom of bell housing and rubber boot around clutch fork.  Drove the truck about 50 miles down the freeway, and to the gas station.  It took about 11 gallons of fuel.  Calculated 200.2 miles – 18.106 MPG.  Really surprised it was that good because I’ve been WOT many times from 1st through 3rd gears on that tank.

The engine runs good on 87, 89, or 91 octane.  I filled it with 87 this time and it revs nice with no detectible pining.

I looked under the truck and saw oil drops and smears on the bottom of the bell housing. If I had to guess on how much, it was less than a teaspoon of oil.  But it appears to be coming from inside the bell housing…. Unfortunately I have a bad feeling it is leaking from the crank seal and/or possibly the gasket.

I’m concerned that the leak will contaminate the new clutch disc and I’ll have to replace.

I now have 492 miles on the break in oil, so I will be changing it and the oil filter.

I am NOT a happy 1986 Toyota XtrCab truck owner right now.

If you find that the oil leak continues one possible cause could be the flywheel bolts. I believe they are open to the crank case on the inside. Been a while since I have looked at one on a 22re. I have seen more than once on a Toyota where no locktight was used and oil leaks out past the threads.
Hope I’m wrong.

I just checked the cranks I have outside in the bed of my truck. They are not thru holes, so they should not leak oil.

I can see tranny fluid possibly getting on pressure plate with a tranny oil seal problem.

But with the engine, the flywheel should act like a large oil slinger and keep oil off the pressure plate.

Not necessarily. As it slings all in the bellhousing it can run down and drip on the pressure plate. I hate it for you gnarls but it looks like if you don't find a leak on the head your dropping that transmission your so fond of messing with.  :sick:

I was thinking the same thing. the fact that it's coming out of the clutch fork boot means it's making it past the flywheel.

so at this point it's not residual oil from the halfmoon, and it's not the flywheel bolts (from what I can tell. I looked at 3 cranks, don't know if they were TEQ or repro's), and that leaves the rear main. gnarls should invite me over. I'll pull that motor out in 30 minutes instead of dropping the trans :disturbed:

I’ve only seen a few Toytoa crankshafts, but don’t recall any that had flywheel to crank thru-holes into the crank case?  :dunno:

I think early Chevy has thru holes?

Regarding the oil inside the bell housing… as the oil leaks around the rear seal and onto the flywheel it will fling droplets all over the inside.  Under high RPMs the inside of the bell housing, as it get hot, is like a wind tunnel and the turbulance will make an oil “fog”… and it WILL eventually get all over the clutch disc.  :yesnod:

Gnarls.  :disturbed:

Please don't take this personal.. this would apply to anyone at 16 years of age...  :therethere:

LOL.... so... I might let you come over and watch, so you can take notes.  When you are about 30 years of age and still working on your Toyota truck, I MIGHT consider actually letting you touch my engine with just one finger.   Unfortunately, you will NEVER get a chance to pull my engine without dropping the tranny first!....unless I'm deceased and my truck went up on the auction block at my estate sale, and you were the highest bidder!  LOL.  :gap:

I do appreciate your kind offer. :gap:

Gnarls.  :blah:

Thanks... yeah I was hoping somehow it was just the half moon.  :-\

I'll drive it one more time and look for oil at the bell housing, but I think I'm doomed to pull the flywheel and see where the oil is coming from.  Rebuilding and restoring a 32 year old truck is hard work... and making a ding in my savings account!! :yikes:

At 50 years of age, working on my truck was "Hey, this is fun."  At 60 years of age, working on my truck was "OK, I'll do it."  At 70 years of age, working on my truck is.. "Oh crap, do I really want to go out into the garage and get sweaty and greasy, and then be stiff and sore the next morning?" :smack:

At 40 years of age I was kick'n my Toyota truck's butt all the time.  Now it's kick'n MY butt!!

-snip-

I was more or less offering because I can work friday saturday sunday and monday on my truck and not be sore in the morning. gnarls lifts the hood and he's in the shoutbox for three days about how sore he is  :gap:

Also he's the closest member besides SlayTank, who I don't actually know. Keep in mind 30 year old Toyotas are a beast to work on, especially when they've been through ten people and rebuilt at least twice like mine, which was also Xtra cab swapped. Easy to do stuff right the first time when the only thing you've done on your truck is change the shocks, I guess. :shake:

I choose to assume that this is a shot in my direction.  :down:

I have no problem admitting that wrenching isn't my skill or interest, so am happy to pay to have the job done right.  My first 85 truck was built in 2002 and the 4Runner was built in 2008.  I have not had a trail break in the past 15 years thanks to the work that has been done for me.  I've done a little bit more than shocks and am capable of a tad more than I've done, but it's just not my what I enjoy doing.
