Well to answer your questions:

I installed a non emissions header from NWOR. You can keep the stock exhaust manifold, you just need to make block off plates for the hot gas lines that come off the manifold if equipped.

First off, my truck doesn't have A/C or cruise control, if yours does, you need to keep the vacuum lines and related switches that operate the idle up circuit when the A/C is on and same deal with the cruise. :greengrin:

Removed and made block off plates for the egr valve

Removed the charcoal canister( big black can below wiper motor) this created a nice spot for the arb compressor :thumbs:

Removed the dashpot ( valve thingy by the throttle linkage on throttle body)

Plugged fuel tank vent line the went to the charcoal canister and installed a vented fuel cap

Removed the  :stopit: steel vacuum line rail with all hoses. cleaned it up nice

Removed the vacuum switches on the valve cover. one was for the egr and one for the fuel pressure regulator

Ran a vacuum hose straight from the fuel pressure regulator to a vacuum port on the rear of the intake chamber

Plugged off unused vacuum ports

I also run a gutted cat which helps quite a bit on the upper end ( i keep a good cat for deq, it will not pass with out it :shakehead: )

When its time for DEQ i install a good cat, put the dashpot back on( it helps with NOX) run it down to almost empty, dump a third a gal of denatured alcohol in the tank, put 3 gal of fresh 92 octane in and run her through the test. It also helps to change the oil too, if it wont pass.

Hope that helps and good luck! IMO its worth the work to simplify the engine :beer:

When i put the Marlin bumper on i tried to use some LED light for turn signals. When the sun hit them they were invisible.

So i modified the park light housing to accept a amber 1157 bulb and socket. It worked out sweet. :qtip:

Here are some pics of installing a inclinometer from a RH drive toyota hilux surf(2nd gen 4 runner). I thought this would be a quick easy job but it turned out to take an afternoon to install.


If you look at this pic closely you can see how its molded to fit the left side of the dash. I took it completly apart and started cutting, test fitting, cutting, test fitting etc. Many times to get it to

sit down in the dash pocket so it looks right.

After i got the plastic housing modified then came cutting up the metal mount bracket. There was about an inch gap between the dash and meter with it untouched. I should have took more

pics but i was in a hurry. :snare: Basically you need to cut the bracket in half and shorten the original mount ears to lower it and drill new holes.

here it is finished and ready to install

it turned out real good, the only thing is, to get it to blend in good with the lines of the dash it wont sit level. Which is no big deal because the gauges are adjustable. I also modified the gauges

internally so they would go past 30 degrees. The inclinometer adds alot to the interior and looks cool at night :yupyup: Now i just need a cheat sheet to convert meters to feet for the altimeter! :screwy:

I installed one on my 87 toyota truck about 2 years ago when I sold the truck I should have taken it out, I got a good deal on it from a junk yard they only wanted 20 dollars for it.  Maybe I'll start looking for one to put on my 94.

Looks great!  How'd you mount your driving lights to the Marlin front bumper?  Did it come with tabs for lights?  I just ordered one for myself.  I've got the same rear bumper too, very nice.  Also, nice inclinometer install.  Where did you get it?  I need to find a blue one.

For the lights on the bumper i just drilled and tapped holes, real simple. A friend gave me the inclinometer for my birthday :clap2:  i think he got it off this board. you can find them on ebay or look on yotatech.com, search for inclinometer. Good luck!

Marking the first cut. This step took the longest to get right. I must of walked around the truck 50 times measuring. This is my first time doing a bed bob and i didnt want one side of the truck longer! So the moral is, measure 50 times cut once :thumbs:

My wife didn't want me to bob the bed at first, so i bought her a new dirtbike which distracted her long enough for me to start cutting :clap2:

Then she wanted to help! in her work clothes no less. I think i was played... :talkingn:
