And the engine goes back in.  Just have to put in the radiator and hook up the doodads and we can go back to work!
I've seen some back yard :pokinit: before, but that is some serious gagster :pokinit:. I know You got to have some chain around there someplace.

Two of the flywheels, the bad ones, were 22 lbs and the good one was 24 lbs. The newer style one I had been using was 24 lbs too so I was glad not to change since I've been so happy with the trucks performance.  The 1,600 lb pressure plate is 3 lbs lighter than the old one which is interesting.


My factory stock flywheel, after it was balanced, weighed 24.5 lbs.  I did not have a "step".  For a healthy clutch disc and pressure plate, if you can smoke a clutch disc due to insufficient clamping pressure from a Toyota factory pressure plate behind the stock engine it came mounted on, you may need some clutch pedal-gas pedal technique tutoring.  :gap:

Well, if I remember correctly I put those into service last winter when all my stuff was buried under about a foot of snow.  I had the engine hoist but no chain handy.  I had tore down a bunch of 20Rs and that was all in the shed so when I was trying to figure out what the heck to use at 4:00AM and zero degrees there were the old timing chains in the bottom of a greasy box. 

As it turns out they keep things level, centered and kind of more rigid than regular linked chain.  They work so good that I have just kept on using them.     :sly:

I have always been happy with stock clutches as long as I have good gearing for my tire size, but I bought this one gently used from 05sport4x4 on here for cheaper than I could have got a stock style replacement. Apparently he used it on a 22re just a few runs before an engine swap. The disk, Japan throwout bearing and pressure plate all looked nearly new so I was happy.

Pedal pressure seems no more than stock and it hooks up smooth and positive.  Better than my janky oil soaked old one for sure :).
