94 4Runner: 3.4L Custom Crossover Pipe & Add a Leaf to Front Springs (08/16/11)

Well, I start the day off by taking a shot of that 5 hour energy extra haha! not the best way to start the morning... ANYWAYS! I got down to the house, and started working on the front leaf packs first thing. I got the packs broken down, and added a 1988 Ford Ranger leaf spring (i think the #3 spring from the pack) to my 3" rear lift springs... When i dropped the motor in, i lost an inch of height. the 4runner was sitting PERFECTLY level till then... So i had to add a leaf. The Ford springs Boosted the front up another 3"! so i am sitting 2" higher than before! Then i had to run into town and get some Exhaust pipe bent to start working on the crossover pipe. the guy i talked to said they could do 1 7/8" pipe, but forgot that they dont have those dies anymore, so they couldnt bend my pipe... instead, they made me the crossover pipe out of 2" and gave it to me for a really good deal, plus they threw in a piece of 2.5" that i put to good use! now i just have to figure out how i want to attach the next piece to this crossover pipe... im going with 2.5" all the way back, so the stock toyota flanges arent going to work for me... Thanks for Watching!

94 4Runner: Swap The Fuel Pump... Slight Problem Now... (10/20/12)
I got the fuel pump swapped out, but she's still hesitating off the line, or if the RPM's are too low.. she fires up RIGHT away now, just like she used to, and revs up way faster now, but under load, she's still acting up... thinking it could be the pre-filter filter i added onto the pump... once it warms up a bit, ill take it out again, and see what happens without the blue rag...

94 4Runner: 3.4L Installed, More Wiring & Rear Disc Brakes (08/14/11)
Well, I started the day off working on the wiring. I found out that the motors for the windows all work, so its definitely the master switch in the door that is the problem. Then I started working on the rear brakes. I had a weird caliper (figured out that both are doing it) that wears the inside pad first and doesnt really wear the outer pad... Then I decided I wanted to get the engine in. So i got the other mount changed over to Polyurethane and got the motor in! It fits awesome! Exhaust will be doable from underneath too! Maybe ill get a shop to bend a piece of pipe in weird angles, then cut it up to make my own crossover pipe. they surely wont charge much for a few bends on a pipe that i could supply... Then I got the rear suspension finished. i was able to finally get the front right shock off, so i threw the 12" shocks on the rear. its just awesome! Now i just have to seal the gas tank, install it, get a filler neck made, and plug it in. Then i have a few odds and ends to deal with... nothing else really major... Thanks for Watching!

Rebuilding a Toyota Solid Axle Brake Caliper
Well, I had some funky stuff going on with my rear left brake caliper, so i figured i should take it apart, clean it up, then rebuild it and reinstall it! I do it mostly step-by-step, but i do miss a few things... a tripod would come in SO handy when i do these kinds of videos haha! Thanks for Watching!

94 4Runner: Rear Disc Setup & More Little Things... (08/25/11)
Well, I woke up early today so I could get the driver side shock tower welded before the sun hit it haha! I got the brake line flared too, but not before I forgot to put the fitting on first DOH! Then I show off my rear disc brake mounts, and swapped out the axle seal. One thing i forgot to record though, was the rear wiper assembly... I went over to my buddy's place, and grabbed the wiper assembly off his parts 4runner. Then I started putting the interior back together a bit. I still have to repair or replace the power steering box, run Exhaust, and get front shocks. The rear driveshaft is finished, and will be going on tomorrow! might do a little romping vid for you guys! haha! Thanks for Watching!
