    Take measurements on the length of the boot and how many ribs it has. Measure both shaft end diameters. If it’s close then you need to try. Mark both ends so you can reinstall the same way. Take only one Side of the boot off so if it won’t work you only need to reinstall one side.

    On edit.
    Take the cowl apart and put some wire mesh over the heater inlet. Do the same for air cleaner. You’ll be calling your insurance guy in about a year to have the motor torn apart

    Well thanks...

    I guess that's what I'm down to. Kind of surprised this hasn't cropped up already and a fix become standard.

    I'll let you know if it fits well enough to brag about so you can pass it on if someone else asks.

    That's on the list when I do the tow mirror install. The truck is being left in the garage at work from now on rather than outside under a tent since the boss' truck is going bye-bye (he retired).
    I opened and checked the intake filters before I started it so I didn't suck Mr & Mrs Mouse into the engine. Destructive little turds.

    My father was a bodyman/painted so I grew up in the bodyshop during the 90's when pinstriping was still more popular. I of course had to add one to my '99 S10 when I re-painted it.

    Got both Yota's cleaned up and tucked away.

    [​IMG]


    Tacoma needs an interior cleaning badly, probably gonna tackle that tomorrow. Got an upcoming oil change on the Camry, gonna probably switch to a Xw30 this time around. Its been short ran all year, so the oil is definitely nasty and smells like gas! Gonna start driving it more often as my truck's accumulating the miles quickly and the Camry gets better fuel mileage; with gas prices soaring it'll help me out. Battery is also going on 5 years old, so I might replace it before I start driving it more. We have a couple places that keep East Penn/Deka batteries so I can keep it "local." Its got newish General Altimax tires on it, so that's taken care of. Contemplating a transmission fluid D&F, even though it only has 30K. Several reports of these generations transmissions not making the long haul if it's not serviced regularly.
