    7mgte top end rattle?

    Well there is nothing else at that level on the 7m head.the other thing to check is to see if any of the spark plugs are getting grounded via contaminents. For giggle I would take the ignition caps of, take out spark plugs and then inspect them. See if there is any grounding paths especially on...

    7mgte top end rattle?

    As stupid as this might sound, have you checked the ignition wires to make sure you are not arcing to ground? Easiest way is to turn off all lights and check at night. See if there is any blue. A valve would not be ticking that often. The ignition would as it would tick essentially every...

    7M-GTE Igniter circuitry

    Hi all, I scoured these and the other forums and FB to (the quality of tech stuff there is subpar). Long story short, has anyone got any internal measurements from the igniter specifically the signal BEFORE it gets bumped to 12v via the output transistor that feed the coils (Where the IGf is...

    Air Duster Cans as R-12 Refrigerant Alternative???

    Intresting read Piratetip. Synopsis: HF-r1234yf will not be approved for retrofitting R-134a systems. The service ports are totally different than r-134a (got to get new service port adapters). Any r1234yf that has been contaminated cannot be reused. Needed dedicated recovery equipment that...

    Air Duster Cans as R-12 Refrigerant Alternative???

    Not sure where you got your information. Toyota own TSP (Technical service bulletin) has the information needed for r-12 to r-134a conversion. The numerous times that I did r-12 to r-134a. I was able to match or exceed the 40 degree F at the center vents (best was 36 degrees, 4 degree but it...

    Air Duster Cans as R-12 Refrigerant Alternative???

    Why? 40 degree out of the vent is 40 degree whether it is R134a, r12, Ammonia etc. There is a Toyota Service bulletin (and it happens to be sticked up on this forum) with how much r-134a to add and oil. This is DIRECTLY from Toyota since it still is a mandate to switch over to r-134a on cars...

    For those interested in a full dashboard rebuilding service...

    THe door panels can be redone in leather without issues since it is a wood backing. the dash item, that is really not a horrible price. Try to price an OEM dash... 4month lead time though... that is a heck of a long time. They must be really busy which is a good thing!
