+1, I know it sounds simple but I've seen more than one person try and remove a bearing with the snap ring in.Just to verify, you did remove the outer snap ring holding the inner race into the knuckle?
I’ll give you a heads up the next time I’m going that way so we can catch up.Make a trip up to Spokane Blake! do you still have your 88 or are you down to only the truck?
Yes, Cleaned and polished them then wrapped in paint protection film to keep them that way and prevent rock chips. The set I was swapping in were in great shape so they did not need wet sanding before the polish but I will usually do that if there is moderate oxidation, scratches or pitting.By restoring the turn signals do you mean to polish the plastic, or something else? I am impressed with what a polish on the tail lights can do.
Thank You!!! means a lotI love this car.
you are so talented sir. great work.
The remains were horrible. The first one was even worse and I wish I had taken pics of it.Excellent video.!
You had as much fun with shitty rebuilt racks as I did.
I rebuilt mine with the gates kit but ran into issues with the side seals seating properly.
Not sure what it is about rebuilding these racks but they really piss me off. LOL
I really wish there was still a new rack available from Toyota.
I was luck my rack was in really good shape inside and the directional valve gear and cylinder had very little wear on it. That was another reason I wanted to rebuild it. Even if I got a good looking reman you don't know the amount of wear on the inside.Yeah. Sounds about right.
Supposedly Toyota still sells the reman racks.. but I am weary of those as well. No idea who rebuilds them.
Some Toyota OEM parts stores show them in stock others show them discontinued.
The rebuilt one I managed to piece together is not great, the on center steering play is not good.
But that's what happens with these reman parts when they don't put in new core components.
I wished I would have done more close ups when I was editing it. Really hoping to get a second Camera in the next year and retire this one to b-cam duty. Each close up required resting and refocusing the camera and doing the step a second time so I tried to only do the things that I didn't think would be 100% straight forward with the rack in front of you. I should have done more but what would have been a few hour job turned into probably 15 hours when filming it so I was getting lazy lolgreat video
one suggestion for next time, in a video like this where you are showing how to do something, having a second close up camera on the hardware would be helpful. When you are disassembling the PPS housing, it was hard to see what you were doing, so even using a still shot like with the c-clip would be great.
