I would like to know if the new TOB can be found as a standard replacement part or it has to be custom from PDM only.
I'm leaning for this solution when the chirp comes back (I know it will come back).
I hope the new TOB is an over the counter part from any auto store.
I hope to keep this truck until it dies in my hands and down the road the clucth and TOB will be replaced at least a couple of times due to normal wear.
We had been told that the bearing is a standard part sourced from some other vehicle. In this case, for some reason, I'm thinking I read somewhere that it is from a Tundra. Not positive on that though, but a good question to put to PDM.
Also note : The kit replaces Toyota part #31230-60240. This P/N is for the FJ, not sure if it's the same on the Tacoma (they are the same transmission and clutch parts though). You can verify it with your dealer. Call & give them your VIN & ask for the proper part number.
The kits are now available and the cost will be $195 plus S&H of $9 for ground, $18 for 2nd day, & $40 for overnight. I think I read that one of the guys who bought one said the price had gone up a little more than originally quoted. We have been talking to Joel Cox @ PDM (http://www.pdmtsk.com/home.html
