Got this Sucker in today! It is going in my 85' single cab 4x4. New transmission within the last 20K!
First Motor I've installed. At 19 years old it's not impressive, I've known younger that have! It was an interesting process.
Prior to install I did:
Transmission input shaft seal/gasket
Rear main installed/freshly machined flywheel and new clutch kit.
I DIDN'T drop the transmission during the install, Toyota recommends it in the FSM last time I checked.
I got the bell housing and the block lined up and bolted it together pulling both assemblies together.
It wouldn't slide together as I had heavily painted the motor which got on the rear alignment dowels.
I'm really eager to get it going!
