Nice link! Thanks.

I was going to get some 6 dollar leds from trail gear, but this looks easer.

So today I cleaned the TB, super dirty.
Then seafoamed and holy smokes!!! She smoked out the block, so I had to go drive around. WOW, I also put a bunch of marvel Mistery oil in her and now the oil is black. Time for a change.


Next project is the side marker/turn signal, oil change, and black rims!!

I'd tape off the corner lights and paint those too, that's atleast what I did.

Little update,

Finished black out of the front, will post picks soon.

check engine light came on a few times first got po130 cleared it then few days later po133 came on. So I think new o2 sensors are in order.

I also need a tire rotation and balance like yesterday

swaped mufflers, sounds better. Have a few exhaust leaks, need to fix the welds.

Ordered a new shifter bushing from marlin crawler, as well as a rear transfer case output seal. Which I hope will work for the front out put on the case.

Also getting some redline for the trans

need to bleed the clutch master.

Kind of forgot about the build page, oh well update time.

Installed marlin crawler shifter bushing, much better.

Replaced valve cover gaskets, this was not super hard but a we bit stressfull. I did use autozone gaskets, the valve cover ones were fine but the spark plug hole gaskets I jacked up on install, so I had to get some yota ones, much better to install.

Checked plugs looked new.

Got some NGK wires i need to install next.

Next up is suspension. I have some ideas of what i want to do, so we will see.

Changed spark plug wires today with NGK unit.

Change oil with autozone syn oil because it was on sale, also used a toyota filter.

Did notice a metal on metal noise on the front driver side.
Upon inspection the drivers side lower ball joint is hashed. So I stuffed in some grease to try and lube it up.

Ordered some lower joints from rock auto, moog units from this post.
