1982 Toyota SR5 4WD
« on: Jan 22, 2020, 03:12:28 PM »
A few years ago I saw an Ď82 Toyota 4WD sitting and I asked the owner about it. He said he bought it new and wanted to restore it one day. He ended up parking it because it wouldnt run above idle and the 4WD was out. I told him I would be interested if he ever sold it as I was thinking about a Toyota 4WD for my kids to learn to wrench and drive on. But, it didnít sound very likely.

Fast forward I get a call out of the blue that he is ready to sell. We make a deal and drag it home.

Thanks.  We're going to bring it back to life. I've been teaching them how to baseline the truck.  It needs a lot. Started with new wipers, new sidemarkers and a new passenger mirror so far. Then started with the fuel system, drained the tank, dropped it, cleaned it out, and replaced the tank strainer. New fuel filter installed and just finished the carburetor rebuild tonight with carb harness repair and emission computer inspection. Pulled the plugs and the valve cover and plan on adjusting the valves and bead blasting the valve cover next. Pleasantly surprised to see how clean it was inside the engine. Ordered some BFG K02's in a 30x9.50R15 for the stock chrome wheels but waiting to have installed while the kids bring the chrome back to life.

Thanks. The wife wants them to learn on a pretty stock truck so that's the goal to get it up, running, and reliable.

It came pretty complete.  It's missing the air cleaner gaskets, the outer exhaust manifold cover, the drivers rear mudflap, drivers rear bumpstop, and the dash is cut for the radio. Also, curious if there are any aftermarket rubber fender fillers available anywhere?
