    well had a oil leak problem. "long story short"- Wobly Balancer, Cracked the timing gear, and broke the keyway. (so the quick fix)- we got a new balancer and where it goes around the crankshaft we just put some JB weld and let it set over night and wala. (i know its not the best thing, but it saved me having to get a engine. i simply could not afford it with college right now. and if it will last me a year or so that would be great. im keepin my fingers crossed. but knowing these ol toyotas. it may last forver. who knows?

    Well we bolted it up like normal we just added some jb weld where it fits over the crankshaft because it cracked the keyway and timing gear. & we also had a bad wobble. but everything seems to be working as good as new so far.
