Got the engine mostly torn down today! Time to start ordering new parts I guess
Wow I was actually thinking I wanted to put a turbo in my 22re 4runner. But after all the replies on the thread I posted and these I'll stick to what I have for now.
Stupid plastic chain guides...
Stupid plastic chain guides...Where'd you get your timing chain cover?
I don’t know the history of this truck, but whenever I see photos of a Toyota engine in this condition, I immediately ask “WHY”? Why would someone drive a vehicle and NOT do preventative maintenance on it? Yes, catastrophic component failure does happen, but neglect and stupidity destroys more engines. I think it’s common knowledge that you have to work really hard to kill a Toyota truck.Regarding your camshaft choice. What have you decided? I’m just curious.Keep up the good progress.Gnarls.
Yeah I don't know any of the history of the engine either, just bought it as a core to rebuild. The guy I got it from said it ran but only well enough to get it on and off a trailer, and he bought the truck for the cab to replace his after it rolled. As for cam selection, I haven't really decided yet. Maybe this week I'll make a spreadsheet comparing the stock cam to some of my other choices, and I still need to look a little more into cam theory to better understand what all of the lift/duration/overlap numbers mean
Been lagging ...... been paying more attention to my NEW '17 Tacoma...

Haha no I had a bunch of dirt in the bed that turned in to mud when I started washing the truck and pulling it up on ramps was the easiest way to get the bed to drain as I was housing it out
