    Help! Supra doesn't run right

    Yeah for sure the toyota gasket maker will be much much much better but it sucks that it comes in a small tube. I bought a big tube of the black rtv today. I'm still going back and forth in my head if I want to use the paper gaskets or black rtv. Will decide soon. I'll look into those plugs.

    Been busy since this quarantine. Tore block further down Painted oil pan with high heat paint as old paint had chipped away and started building surface rust. Also what are these plugs for and what are the torque spent on them. Couldnt find them on the tsrm.

    These are the gaskets I'm talking about And I'll be using rtv black as I can get a pretty big tube at my local auto parts store. Isn't the FIPG similar to the rtv black?

    Ok so I had bought a set of gaskets and seals for the engine. Looking at the gaskets I'm thinking of not using them, especially for the block. I dont think those paperish gaskets will do well. I'm contemplating if I should use the black rtv or just use these cheap gaskets I got. What's your guys...

    Yeah I've been looking through the diagrams and the text for the torque specs. I'll have to look through service specs and see what I find.

    Help! Supra doesn't run right

    So I figured out the fuel return line support as it is 9 ft-lbs ( I guess it was a slip of the finger with the 8 part) but where do I find the other torque specs. As I see through the assembly portions of tsrm, only half the parts have torque specs. The other half is suppose to go off that chart...

    Is this torque spect in ft-lb a typo?

    Also took the oil pan off. Everything looks great to me. Everything spins fairly easily. Also this dang fan clutch ain't budging off. I have all the dang nuts off. I sprayed some pb blaster and will wait to see what happens.

    I was excited to reassemble the tranny when I found out that this guide pin is missing. I ordered it from toyota but it is on back order. Now I'm sitting here sad while waiting.

    Off the repair topic, I've been looking for a long while into buying a 1jzgtte. I know the swap with the auto goes for much cheaper then the swap with the r154. And since I already have the r154 and just need to buy a bellhousing, what's the major issue with dropping a manual tranny on a auto...

    I just realized the clutch assembly is missing this part shown in the picture (thrust cone spring). This car has been driven for god knows how long without this part. Any potential damage it could have caused? Will be ordering this as well.

    Got the new heater banjo. Just hand tightened in for now as I ordered new crush washer and they wont be in for two weeks. I also figured out where the locking ball goes on they tranny. It goes where I circled on the picture. I forgot to remove these parts before I disassembled the tranny...

    With a 30 year old car I'd expect everything to be opened at least once. Year I'll figure it out definitely. But it was a bit weird, when I drained out the tranny, the fluid looked new new. But when I took it apart the remaining fluid was a bit milky grayish color.

    I was thinking of using black gasket maker i have instead of getting the original gaskets but undecided on that. I know the people before me used a red gasket maker. I also did find one of the balls on the bottom of the housing which I need to figure out where it goes.

    No everything ran fine when I drove it ahwile ago. And visually everything looks good. I wanted a visual inspection and also wanted the see the inners of the r154. And also wanted to reseal or gasket everything as a preventative maintenance.

    I'm tearing my tranny down right now. Tsrm doesnt seem to have the part numbers for the gaskets for the r154. They have the part number for the input and output shafts seals but not for the gaskets. Anyone have those part numbers?
