It must be in the air to rebuild 22re's. I just dropped mine in last Sunday and am waiting for the injectors to come back. Good to know about that issue with Engnbldr's timing set thoug!
.... Good to know about that issue with Engnbldr's timing set thoug!
My last engine snapped a rod and blew out the block. The only extras I did was put in a 261 cam from Engnbldr with his stock replacement head. The injector deal ended up being a huge mess and either USPS, the company they drop them off to or Witchhunter(which I doubt) lost mine so I ended up ordering some from LCE. If you aren't in a hurry I'd get them cleaned as I heard it makes quite a difference. I'm very interested in seeing your thoughts on the 261C with a header, I still have the stock manifold. The one thing I did for sure do was new engineotor mounts. I used GM transmission mounts which are Polly.
... I had an issue with the rocker assemble ...
My I ask what kind of issue?Thanks,Gnarls.
What do you guys like to use as gasket sealant on the intake manifold gasket, if any? I'm leaning towards Ultra Black?Thanks,Gnarls.
... Engnbldr and he suggested I go with the 261 based on their being no intake mods and for exhaust I'll be running 2" to the muffler then 2.25 to the tail pipe.
Also, look at picking up some M10x1.25 48mm studs and use those for the starter unless you still have the stock top stud for it. Makes life so so much easier. I will be comparing this one to my stock cam, which I could 75-80 in 4th with it.
For the intake gasket, I used permatex copper. It's great for higher heat seals like the intake, and works perfectly!Make sure you're using Toyota red coolant. I buy 1 gallon, dump it in, and fill the rest with distilled water.
22re performance says to use a coolant without any phosphates.
Yes, I think I'd rather get cane'd than installl the starter... it's a bear!!Gnarls in the garage hot and sweaty
I am curious about this as we changed the starter on my 22RE on the road to Moab and it was about a 15 minute project in the Autozone parking lot. What makes yours so difficult?
Go to a radiator shop and have them silver solder a new one in.. or almost anyone who can silver solder should be able to help you out. Fittings only cost me about $25 to have connectedSent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
I wouldn't. From what i gathered when i was doing my fuel line fittings, propane doesn't transfer enough heat.But if propane does work, be careful with the flux.. i don't see why someone couldn't just silver solder in a barbed fitting if they're good at itSent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
Here is my buddy changing the starter. I think he did all of it from this angle. I guess my lift, tires, shock hoops, etc., add up to make access pretty easy.
Update: 5:55 pm - July 7, 2016I called the Toyota dealer, Parts Dept couldn’t find the two water by-pass ports, so I called Jerry at 22RE Performance. The big one is available, the little is not. I ordered the big one. I did some internet research and could not find something that I could use. So I cut off the rusty nipple and decided I will figure a way to insert a piece of copper or brass tubing as a nipple.Since the very short distance that the tube/nipple can be inserted, it may be tricky to get something to seal. The other option is to fully insert a tube, then drill the end of the inserted part from the little press fit end.Any suggestions are welcomed!Gnarls.
Tap the hole for a npt fitting.Then screw a nipple into it.
