    Not tech savy but I use the forum a lot for info on Tacomas. I'll be 68 in May and I've had my 2006 access cab TRD since 06. Other than wheel corrosion which I fixed by powder coating, I had an issue with the temp/compass unit which resoldering the circuit board remedied and the fan speed resistor went bad (a GM Delphi part WTF?). Now I'm chasing a check engine lite which throws 4 or 5 codes on "leak detection pump". I reset the lite a couple times and it comes back, throwing the same codes. But, I'll get it. Great trucks, tho because I've had them all....

    Morning Ken... :laughing: at Iggy. the girls still go out - have to chase the squirrels you know :rolleyes: Although they haven't been spending as much time outside.... Zoie will stand in the garage and bark once for me to let her in - don't know where she picked that up from - and if I don't let her in, she will wait a minute and bark once more. Annie is sometimes in there with her, others she is laying right outside the door and will come in when I call her.

    Morning Carl... :( for your friend

    Welcome. May need the canister ass. Pump, valves, all in one unit.
    Replaced a few for mulit codes. Pump seizes and sets off a set of 5 codes. Usually pump stuck on or stuck off. Flow and other vsv codes.

    Am I seeing a need to add on to the porch?

    Also should we have a center fireplace with 360 wrap around easy chairs?

    Sounds good (he says as he struggles with thumb typing). As long as I'm laid up I may as well play with the mobile app...

    Cobra :drool: I don't know what I'd do Paul, but I would darn sure be tempted. That is one of my all time favorites.

    New taco's got a nice looking interior. About time. My 2012 looks 15 years old inside.

    Hi Paul. :wave:

    Here's my take ... She knew her man, and still knows what he'd want. Don't feel blue, feel honored, and in turn honor Charlie by enjoying it, thinking of the good times ya'll had building it, and every time you drive it, do so wearing a grin from ear to ear. I honestly believe that's how he'd want it. :cool:

    Evening all:
    Welcome to a couple new guys, pull up a chair there's still plenty of room on the porch.

    Paul; I had posted awhile ago about something similar. I pulled a small block out of a buddies 67 vette and installed a 427 in it. He offered to pay me but he had done me various small favors so I told him I would do it if he just kept doing the little things for me here and there. I'm happy, he's happy!
    OH! Did I mention; he's a sign painter and can make any vinyl design/decals that I want. :D
    Here's the other thing: I REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO DO IT, but he's a good guy and it came under "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours"
    I call him> Dennis the mechanical menace, so for him to do it--- :eek:!
    I didn't have as many hrs. in it as you did, but exactly, that's what friends are for!!!!!!

    Just saw the other two posts and I agree with them also. Enjoy, and think of your friend every time you drive it, I'm sure his wife had some idea that he wanted you to have it.
