    That explains why I never heard back from him about his high output alternator.

    I sprayed the fittings the day before a few times with PB blaster then just prior to breaking loose I used some Trizol Creep Penetrating Oil I got from work. 19mm and 14mm line wrench and they came right off. Just snugged them back up normal and no leaks. I had more trouble removing the bracket than getting the lines off. If it was replaced before, the previous guy half stripped the front nut.

    I had a heck of a time getting it to not leak. Wasn’t stripped, just had to be really tight.

    per @cruiserguy rec on best trim dressing/protectant to use I started the 1st treatment with this 303 Aerospace, it may require several apps to get back to 'near like-new' :cool:
    it has some associated streaking with it as it does not air dry well
    my OCD disorder desires the black trimmings on my tacoma to be sharp and the weather, sun, age has taken tolls onit
    i do not wish to replace all rubber trims unless they get torn, etc. just one spot on the driver door sil that has to be watched with TLC (that bastard mechanic left a friggn footprint onit last time i let somebody drive it)

    this will be the 4th product I have tried ... hoping this one has best results that will not wash off with rain, touchless wash, etc.
    I will let you know the deets on using this $9 bottle if you are at all interested
    if you have a better product you swear by (like @cruiserguy almost did lol) post 'em up

    the change of appearance in parts of the cowl i have done are good so far, ... i will try to expose it to elements for verification on durability
    peace!
    :proposetoast: cheers to all of the 1st gen 'unicorns' out there, wherever you may be! :proposetoast:

    I hope so, once I get them on! Made an expensive mistake that has set me back on this truck by buying the OEM replacement King's instead of something that would allow me to get more than 1.5" in my rear without worrying about blowing the shocks out.

    I did a 15piece timing belt this weekend, including a coolant flush and transmission drain and fill. 201k (I believe original belt) also finished my Satoshi grille.

    Looks like the original belt. I pulled one off at 277k and yours looks close to getting in the same condition. Did the water pump have a gasket or silicon seal that required scraping off? I found that if you have to scrape, it is original.
