How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.
How to diagnose Toyota Timing Chain Rattle or Knock troubleshoot 22R 22RE 22RET
Every Toyota 22R series engine with the single row timing chain and plastic
timing guides (1983~ish - 1995) that I have ever purchased with over
100,000 miles on the engine has had a driver's side guide that was either
partially broken or just totally gone. To the untrained ear it sounds a
like the valves need adjusting, but in this video I'll show you how to
inspect, troubleshoot, and diagnose a broken driver's side timing guide.
It makes a great bargaining chip when you can show the seller that the
timing guide is broken and then inform them that it's an $800+ repair at a
shop. If you can fix it on your own it will only run you about $100 in
parts and a Saturday's worth of time.
Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy
Well I think the title will sum this one up. Yes, I did loan my car to my
brother the other day only to get it back with a bad distributor, luckily I
had one in a box, not the correct one but one that worked. This also
covers firing order and a few other tips should you have to replace the
igniter or coil. In my opinion the only things you should automatically
replace a distributor on a Honda or Acura for are the bearing going bad
like in this video or oil leaking inside the assembly. I don't think they
should ever be automatically replaced for a no start. I also highly
recommend using Honda ignition parts, if not you may be sorry.
There will be a "sequel" to this covering setting the ignition timing,

How to remove a Toyota 4x4 Birfield joint off an inner axle shaft
In the U.S. 1979 - 1985 Toyota 4x4 trucks had Birfield joints in the front
axles. (Also Toyota Land Cruisers and Suzkui Samurais had similar setups.)
The stock Toyota Birfield joint allows for great motion and smooth
operation and will last forever in a stock configuration. The durability
is their dowfall though as Toyota hardened the bell of the joint to a point
where it didn't wear out from normal use, but with tires larger than 33"
the shock loads of four-wheeling tend to shatter the bell of the Stock
Birfield. The best modification for a Toyota front end is to install a set
of after-market Birfields, the best of which are made by Longfield
Superaxles ( www.longfieldsuperaxles.com ) They are expensive, but once
you put them in you can wheel your junk without having to worry about the
Birfs ever again. Before you can install new Birfields, or Longfields
though, you need to get the old stock Birfield off the inner axle shaft.
The inner shaft has a circlip style snap ring that keeps the inner axle
shaft from walking out of the Birfield joint. This video shows how you get
the Birfield off the inner axle shaft in spite of that inner snap ring.
(The snap ring that is on the end of the inner axle shaft up inside the
Birfield is Toyota Part # 90520-27091. You can get them from any toyota
dealer for around $2 each.
Camshaft Install on a Toyota 86 22RE Cylinder Head On
In this video my son and I install a engnbldr camshaft on his 1986 Toyota
22RE. I have been a Ford tech for 30 years so if you have some pointers to
help others out please add them below. I do not claim to be the Toyota
First start of a 1985 22re after a full rebuild.
Dad got this new back in 1985. It has been a great little truck going
through a lot of states over the years. With well over 200,000 miles on it,
it was time for a rebuild. This is a video of the first start after getting
the engine back in. I used a master kit from EPN engnbldr (Ted) along with
the 268 cam, and RV head. The timing chain has the driver side steel rail.
It is a 86 22r block bored .040 over.
Did the 12 30 to 50 MPH full throttle pulls, came back let it cool and
retorqued the head. Did a 1800-2500 RPM run for 15 mins. then readjusted
the valves to .008 in .012 exh. Am at 90 miles and going to change the oil
The whining is the alt. because I cleaned the hell out of it and took the
oil off those 25 year old bearings. LOL Time for a Chevy alt. upgrade
Here is a link to the place I got my parts.
