Where do most of y'all get your replacement or missing parts from?
Thanks guys! Truck is just pure fun. Everything I fix is just making it better and restoring it functionally to original. Brakes are doing something weird only when it is humid out. They get real touchy and then it goes back to normal. Not sure what's going on exactly. Might have a sticky caliper or brake drum system.I'd like to dive into the engine before long. I want to find an economical parts source to rebuild without substandard parts. The rear diff is loose and I think it's the spider gears. The tranny is slightly noisy so it'll be on the list.Picked up a retro topper off of an 86. I don't think it will quite fit due to the cab angle so thinking about reengineering it.
Touchy as when it is wet or humid out and the truck is cold it will lock up with barely touching the brake pedal.I read somewhere that pulling the resistor block will show if it's burned out.Will have to get back to the issues after addressing it dying at idle like the key is off. I'm suspicious the idle solenoid took a dump.Starter was acting up this week, not fully engaging at first when cold. Pulled it to see if the gear was stuck but it was fine it appeared. Changed out the battery cables as some rodent had chewed on them before I got it and I used liquid electric tape to seal it for the time being. Truck starter definitely turns faster now. Will have to wait and see on a few cold mornings if anything is improved.
If I can't find the new stuff HERE,I shop Rock Auto Parts.Brand name parts,low prices,easy site to shop on. They ship fast too. I just sold my '82,it wasn't an SR5 though. Congrats on your find-it's an easy truck to love.
I don't believe Toyota made or designated a 1982 pickup "SR5". The SR5 badge, (Sport Rally 5-Speed) option package, came out in the 1984 pickup.Gnarl.s
I'm not sure what you are basing that on. It seems like pretty common knowledge that there were first gen pickups with the SR5 designation. They included a 5-speed as well as an extra gauge pod in the lower center dash.
Obviously if you own a 1972 Toyota pickup with an SR5 package and 5 speed, then this is wrong.
This thread as well as the picture I posted of my truck is about the 1982 model, which came with SR5 badging and optional equipment.
We cleaned and backed off the rear drums. Relubed the adjuster. Made for a softer brake pedal but still locks up the same and it is definitely the rear axle. I need to go back and check everything because I don't think it is self adjusting. I'm also wondering if the bar from the LSPV and the chassis is bent.Mine says SR5 4 Wheel Drive on the tailgate.Starter is still barely hanging up from time to time since the new battery cables but much better. I'd like to see how the factory routed the positive battery cable as mine didn't come with it and I want to make sure it doesn't accidentally short.
