  1. Well now the site doesn't want a vin number. Only a frame number will do. Don't know where to find that on an older truck. It does look like an RN2 is from earlier than 8/78 and I don't see any axles for any of those. Sorry. I did find a couple of complete rear ends with very low mileage and one in Canada was a single rear wheel so it wouldn't have had the stress of the duallies. Not all that close though. These are camper axles so they should be the right one Year Part Model Description Miles Part Grade Stock# US Price Dealer Info Dist mile 1978 Rear Axle Assembly Toyota Truck CAMPER,SRW,PULL COVER 26,503 --km-- 42,678 A 17G004 $Call Oliver Recycling & Salvage LTD.

  2. OK I was searching Amayama and I did find that 2 different axles were used in late 78. They have axle shafts available for both. around 250 each plus shipping so almost the same as having some built. Maybe more since they are heavy and would have to be shipped from Japan. I would need a vin to narrow it down. JP-carparts though showed only 1 axle for both the complete trucks and the cab and chassis. Linda S
  3. No Fred, his 78 has a regular truck axle. Shafts from any Toyota truck with the same axle would fit. Linda S
  4. Drive shaft on 78 and older are not a straight bolt up to the full floater. Adapter plate or driveshaft work would be needed on top of the welding for shock mounts and spring perches. I think it would be cheaper to have new high strength axle shafts made. If I was you I would have your existing axle serviced and get new bearings. I've seen damage caused by the fake duallys and any good mechanic will see it too if it's there. Go from there. Sometimes you don't know the best course of action until you start. Linda S
  5. Like you said in your previous comment. Locks with a key are not allowed for emergency situations. Linda S

    Black and grey waste hose needs to be minimum 10 feet. You only need 1. Empty black tank then grey tank to help flush the yuck. For fresh water hose make sure you buy a white RV fresh water hose. Regular hoses can make water smell and taste bad. I know most of us don't drink tank water but I'm washing my dishes with that and my face. Want it to be as clean as possible Linda S

    89 Dolphin roof air conditioner

    And how long did the compressor run the second time. 10 degrees cooling in only 15 minutes is a pretty big drop. Don't think an AC unit with freon loss could do that. AC units don't just cool, they also dehumidify which makes a huge difference in comfort. Considering it's age I would say you need to make do with a little less cooling than you like or go and buy a new one. These cool exactly the same way as a home refrigerator. You wouldn't think twice about replacing a 30 year old fridge Linda S

  10. Your 20R engine has a double chain timing system and a much better head flow. Indestructible. Your block is the same as the 22r just not bored out as much. Some do an upgrade and put the 20r head on an early 22r block for more horsepower. Google it Linda S

    Insta- matic fridge

    I didn't think anyone still rebuilt Insta-matic cooling units but this place does. Yours is probably the IM4 http://atcoamerica.com/products/cooling/#catalog I wouldn't do it unless the rest of your fridge still looks good. No rust, broken shelves. That kind of thing Linda S

    Sunrader Generators

    The motorhome manufacturers put generators in the RV's not Toyota. Most did not come with them as they were an expensive option. We might be able to tell if you have pics of the outside. Generators usually have large door on outside with vents. There would also be an extra exhaust pipe sticking out somewhere near it. Not the truck exhaust Linda S
