It doesn't say TOYOTA on it and cost 15 dollars for a 3oz tube so he doesn't like it
The right stuff with no gasket
I wish you the best of luck my friend, maybe it will work and I will learn a new trick.
It wasn't that I know more than Bgen, or that Bgen doesn't know what he's talking about (more on this). I have a few tubes of black FIPG, myself. I like to use gaskets when the part is designed for a gasket and if it's advised to coat with RTV, I do that. Point being, everyone in their brother seems to use The Right Stuff. H8PVMNT managed to seal his timing cover with The Right Stuff and NO gasket. redneckcustoms13 has used it very frequently without issue. Many DIYers have successfully completed repairs with The Right Stuff. I don't think bestgen knows that The Right Stuff is bad, I think he likes Toyota FIPG better and there's nothing wrong with that. But every time someone uses The Right Stuff, why exude the idea of The Right Stuff being an inferior product if real world use suggests it works?No hate to bestgen, just don't get why he says The Right Stuff is so bad? Sorry for the derailing of your thread Toybrota
Just a few more comments on your thread… I’m feeling a little old and crotchety today. First… there’s no such thing as a thread that doesn’t “derail”. And, in fact, the discussions where the posts are tangential to a main topic are almost always the most informative and most interesting. Of course you could be a hypocritical forum deviate and do what 300k and squish do… delete any posts you don’t like. If you delete my post, I will naturally assume my thoughts or opinions have no value for you and I will go out of my way to avoid sharing any more of my knowledge, suggestions, or opinions with you. 300k….. so bgen is NOT allowed to “exude” his opinions or his sense of humor? You exude bravo sierra every day. If you really want to know why he thinks what he does about what he uses vs The Right Stuff, why don’t you just ask him? Gnarls.
here's my theory, if youre replacing something. always spend just a little more if you have the room in your pocket for an upgraded/better part. it gives you piece of mind if youre ever in a spot where that extra is needed. Also it will never let you down as its intended for something more. Why not go for the 3 core now and then you wont waste money down the road on the 2 core when you decide a 3 core is necessary. I dont like spending money twice.
You should check the valve clearances, especially the exhaust side on that 3rz if it isn't too late.
As a general rule I absolutely agree with this thought process, but am not sure how it applies to radiators.If a stock 2 core radiator will provide adequate cooling for a stock application what is the advantage of having more expensive 3 core radiator installed? With my 22RE I've had never had a cooling issue and been in 105+ degree temperatures on the highway and slow rock crawling in hot temperatures without any issues and I don't think I even have a fan shroud. If I have a cooling system failure is a 3 core radiator really going to help? Are you just thinking about having the capacity for future upgrades?
I have stated this before but I will give it one more try.The stock temp gauge is almost worthless.Now that I have a mechanical temp gauge in Myles’s and My 4runner I can tell you that you will not see the temp move off of center until your engine is overheating. If you only have the stock temp gauge you have no real idea what you temp is or has been.Emsvitil posted a good write up on this proving my point.
I highly recommend this brand of gauge pod.http://www.gaugepods.com Lo-tek makes great stuff. I have one installed on My truck and My Son’s. You won’t be disappointed. Get the three gauge pod, only way to go.
Well, looks like my exhuast Manifold started leaking. A bolt fell out. Guess that's better than it breaking...Since my truck is carbed, I run basically no risk of burning a valve with this leak right? It's not bad. Of course on an EFI truck the O2 sensor would get thrown off which could cause an unbalanced mixture. But I should be fine?Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
Incorrect Every time the exhaust pushes out it also draws in cold air.If you have ever blown on a fire you know what a rush of cold air can do.This is the world you exhaust valve is currently living in.Fix it
Will do then. I'm missing a whole stud, a bunch of exhuast is blowing out. Quits leaking once I put my finger over the hole. Hopefully it's just a bolt fix. But I'm prepared for it not being that easy.
More likely the threads have pulled out on the exhaust stud.Threaded insert or helicoil time.
