  1. Maybe so, but I posted it so that the OP can see what he has. There are remans available on EBAY, the $$ are from 250 -500. The quality may be as varied as the prices. You need to see a photo of exactly what you are buying, that model number has at least 2 different hose/charging ports setups. The OP photos show that his has been converted to R134 with an aftermarket kit. You have to wonder if that conversion was plug n play or was done properly.
  2. Well its not a Sanden. but here is the exact one...https://www.ebay.com/itm/Diesel-Kiki-Zexel-Seltec-DKS15BH-Compressor/174070583886?hash=item28876a524e:g:pSIAAOSwk-Bdq4Jl
  3. Maybe this one?? https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speedway-Sanden-508-V-Belt-A-C-Compressor-Plain,8581.html?sku=42813459&utm_medium=CSEGoogle&utm_source=CSE&utm_campaign=CSEGOOGLE&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvNf-pI6Q5wIVhcJkCh0i9AdpEAQYAyABEgIcn_D_BwE
  4. Good score. Depending on many things, you can rebuilt the bushings and ball joints OR a quick and dirty is pop the ball joins off the spindle and just bolt that on your ball joints and A-arms
  5. FWIW. Toyota Escaper's were made by Damon who went bankrupt, then the asset's were bought by another company who operated under the same name but were different people and no longer made Toy MH's. The new Damon was sold (merged with) to Thor.
  6. Its one of those kinda sorta things. It depends on what the RV mfg started with. The standard pre 87 pickup used a 9.75 x .83" thick vented rotor with a 2" caliper piston. The pre 87 HD (not 1 ton) chassis used a 10.1" x .945" thick with a 2" piston. The later 1 ton used the big rotor with a 3" caliper piston. They all used a 5 bolt rotor with a FACTORY 5/6 adapter. The factory adapter is iron and AFAIK the aftermarket adapters are aluminum
  7. Most of us have replaced the thrashed OEM shocks, With KYB and Bilstein being the top choices. Shock ware house has a set of 4 shocks...good... Monroes $142, better... KYBs $145 and best Bilsteins for $320. $240 labor yikes, do you have ANY wrench skills??? Tools??? Safety stands??? Shock replacement is a long way from Rocket Science. I'm guessing Pep Boys is selling Monroes which is not such a good deal. IF they are selling Bilsteins then the package isn't to bad of a deal.
  8. Awesome Lets see $6000 in parts, 100 hr labor (@$75 HR). $10,000 for the rig. Good thing your doing this for the love of the game and not trying to make a living
  9. Go to a truck store and look for a set of led work lights. If you need day light look at driving led light bars
  10. Your dealing with 2 seals and a trim piece. The frame is sealed to the house with the butyl tape . The window is sealed to the frame with a small bead of urethane auto glass sealer. What most people think is the seal is actually just a trim to hold the glass in place while the urethane sets and to make things pretty. Make sure the frame weep holes are not plugged.
  11. time and Budget??? https://22reperformance.com/#new-page https://209yota1.com/products/toyota-22r-24l-rebuilt-engine Not LA, but California NOTE 1984 22R and 1985 22R are different. May interchange when using a Carb
  12. Just looking at them are they all about the same size?? Take a metric one to your local NAPA store and see what they have. The problem going to be the holes that had SAE bolts in them, is there enough thread left to go back to metric bolts. Worst case you may end up using an SAE tap and making all the bolts holes SAE. These are just simple bolts you don't need grade 8.
  13. Not at this instance, but next time the pan comes off you are going to be doing a lot of scraping laying on your back. What gasket sealer did you use?? Simple answer is a thin film of sealer on the pan and a thin film of grease on the transmission. That way the gasket comes of the transmission with out scraping and you can clean the pan on the work bench.
  14. Somebody has been mucking about on your transmission. The bolts with a 6 point star are SAE (American) the one with numbers are metric. A 1/4x20 bolt will fit in a 6x1.25 hole, not very well but it can be done. Look carefully at the bolts with the numbers on the head. Metric will be marked like 4.8 or 8.8. You need to see what metric bolt is needed and get a metric tap and clean out the threads and use new hardware.
