You could us plumbing but it would probably last just as long as jb weld, brazing rod would be the best thing to use.
Just swap to a decent v6 radiator while its all out. Putting all this time into a 4cyl is lame. It takes like 3 minutes to redrill holes.
Aluminum after market v6 radiator less than 150 on ebay. Bolts difectly in place.
There is more to it than just 3 minutes. The V-6 radiator may have different dimensions, causing a fit problem.Then there's the cost... 300k, do you want to donate a new V-6 radiator?Gnarls.
I'll look into that, I might try the plumbing solder fix. My heater does work now! Works pretty darn good too Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
I'll have to see what the junk yard has, I assume the V6 rad has better cooling.... Right?
Its a junkyard upgrade to a 3 core instead of a 2 core. It depends on your climate. If youre in the desert or a mildly warm place with a lot of hills, V6 all the way. If it gets real cold, your heater might not be as warm.
I say, do it. But I also say, think long and hard before doing it with a G52 in your truck.By all I hear, the G52 was almost the second weakest transmission Toyota ever put in a truck. At least, I'd put a W56 in there before getting too crazy with what I pulled. Better yet, find a R150F/R151F and use a 22RTE bell housing to bolt it up to your motor.This is purely my opinion based on things I have read. Perhaps somebody with actual experience of Toyota transmission strengths would like to weigh in?Lewis
Take the belt off and see if the noise is still there. I think it could be the upper idler bearing.after the belt is off spin everything with your hand and see if you can make out any noise.
Did that, took off the power steering belt. Noise persists. Removed the water pump and alternator belt (only ran for 15 seconds) noise goes away. Water pump spins freely as it should. Alternator on the other hand, is obviously making the noise. I just replaced it too. Parts store stuff is garbage. It's been making noises since I put it in, but it's been getting worse. Maybe a few shots of WD40 into it might displace any water or whatever. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
I doubt its a moisture issue. What your dealing with more than likely is cheap bearingsfrom the parts house cheapo rebuild.
Exactly what I'm thinking. The belt is on looser than when I took it off, still has good play. I'd kill for a denso alternator. But the money on that....

Was belt on too tight?Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
