kcbmx's 1984 Toyota 4x4 build

Please feel free to share anything on these older trucks as im trying to find out where to start.

So i picked this old hunk of junk from an older gentleman who put it up for sale down the street from my house.
Got it for 550 with a blown engine ( i still dont know whats wrong with it)

1984 4x4 SR5 straight axle! No mods at all
Over 300k
No rust, a few small dents here and there.
ugly silver stripe

To do:
get the damn thing running
Battery
new bed
new drivers fender
new drivers door
paint
herculine inner fender walls and bed





My engine was toast, cylinder 1 and 2 had 120 psi, cyl 3 had 90, and 4 had 0. I had coolant in the oil and it was filthy, figured it was time to retire this old horse.

Picked this 22r down south from a wrecking yard, I was told it had 87k motor is in great condition minus bad carb with lots of compression and no leaks.



Phase 2
Borrowed an Engine hoist and a pressure washer and got some work done.
Found out the old 22r had a piston blown up in cyl 4, maybe that explains the 0 lbs lol.

Before, this was clutered with oil and dirt.

That is a screamin' deal, even with the engine being shot. Love the 80's Toyotas, it was just a truck, enough to get the job done, no extra fluff. What are the plans for the engine? Rebuild? Crate?

I think i am once i get it out of my dads shop. Have you looked into any headers, I was thinking about the north west off road header but at $520 its kinda out of the question for now.

Way too expensive, I am not familiar with the layout of the engine compartment, or how much room is available. But have you given any thought to making or having made custom headers? Any performance shop should be able to do it for cheaper than $520.

lately the truck has been running like crap and i was getting worried the carb was going bad. Well it turns out that the distributor cap on the new engine was corroded and therefore the the truck was running on 3 cyls. Fixed now and ive been having a blast mobbing this thing around town. These 22r's are pretty peppy for their size if i may say.

How's the 886 light mod compare to stock? Does it make a noticeable difference?
