  1. Ah 195 that explains the Sunny tires. If you have both an excess of funds and a double helping of paranoia , you need to visit these Guys..https://www.customandcommercialwheel.com/vw-wheels-1/ They make a 5 bolt to 6 bolt adapter. These and 3ea. 6 bolt rims and you have one spare that fits everywhere. Plan B is find some in your shoes and share the cost of the pair of adapters, each person gets 1. Then the deal is you get a 6 bolt rim for a spare. If you have a flat in the rear ( its ALWAYS an inside tire) just bolt the spare on. If you have a flat on the 5 bolt front, you bolt your adapter on and install the 6 bolt spare
  2. No play or just a little play? A tiny amount is good. The clutch spring has 3-400 hundred lbs of clamping pressure, you ain't moving it by hand The adjustments are at the pedal push rod, pedal push rod free play between the pedal and master cylinder is .04 and .2" The total system free play ..2-.5" You SHOULDN'T need to adjust these if only changing the cylinders. After replacing both cylinders you will need to bleed the air out. Takes 2 people. You MIGHT be able to do a gravity bleed. Fill up the master and open the bleeder valve on the slave and WAIT untill fluid runs out. Let it drain until the fluid is clear. This will work sometimes, if it doesn't then its 2 people time.
  3. This post is from a befuddled mind.CRS and all that. Tire rule #1 weigh your Toy, front axle weight and rear axle weight Some of the replacement rear axles MIGHT have left hand threads on the driverside rear. Proceed carefully. You will reuse the lug nuts you have, so you don't need new ones or a split set.. Best original tire becomes the 5 bolt spare, a flat in the rear means you remove the flat tire and wheel, inflate the remaining tire to 65 psi and proceed CAREFULLY on 3 rear wheels. A single tire is rated at 1850 lbs, in a dual capicity they are rated at 1650 ea (round numbers). So with 3 tires you have about 5000lbs of carry capacity. Remember rule#1
  4. You new friend should be Harbor Freight, they have a cheap rivnut tool and nuts package. If you get to a real hardware store ask to see some Well Nuts, they can be handy.
  5. Two parts in a hydraulic clutch system, master and slave cylinders. The master cylinder is by the brake master cylinder. The slave is mounted down on the bell housing it is the one that actually moves the clutch fork and throw out bearing Master cylinders $15 rebuilt, $35 new. Slave cylinder is about the same. Both common parts and should be in stock at most auto parts.
  6. Welcome back to the Hood. Full tire size LT185r/14C..Load range 102 The LT means light truck, the C means commerical Load range 102 is the same as load range D or 8 ply (both are obsolete) Show your tire guy this https://www.tires-easy.com/185-14/hankook-tires/ra18/tirecode/2001939 See if they will price match
  7. Trip from WI to Maine

    The answer is to try it If your unhappy then the answer may be 3 fold. Install 4.88 rear axle gears, a BIG trannie cooler and use a lot of O/D on the flats. Here is a gear change, trailer towing report. http://toyotamotorhome.org/forums/index.php?/topic/9743-new-rear-end-gearing-question-456-488-or/
  8. Rear Dinette to Bed Converting

    The small table top makes a better table for eating. The folding bed support is simple and the only "problem" is storing it.
  9. Perfect fuel pressure for a 22RE is 37-38 psi at idle with the vacuum hose hooked up. Remove the hose and it should jump to 44 psi. With out a FP gauge try starting the engine, warm it up and let it idle. Removing the vacuum hose and the idle should change...the efi is going rich, that means the regulator is probably working. Matching fuel pressure to the surges is more important than the actual FP. 30psi ain't enough, but 35 psi is close enough. If the engine is surging and the fuel pressure is stable then we need a different crystal ball. Bad gas mileage USUALLY means its rich so pull a couple of spark plugs and see how they look. Soft black carbon means rich, hard white ash means lean. Lean is a whole another problem so we wont go there now. With limited budget you need to be taking small exact steps toward solving the problem, taking big swings and jumping around or changing a bunch components at one time is expensive and may not fix the problem. So start with small and cheap
  10. Traveling with pets

    Yep ditch the Kat, get a dog... We travel with 2 small dogs, they, quickly learned the rules and we only had problems once. A tornado warning caliber, thunder storm, both dogs made it to the bed on the first thunder boom. A little mess next morning To keep control of the liter box stuff you would need some sort of a box with a roof and a flap door, an open box would get liter scattered around with a serious bump. Depending on your cat, a lot of the litter boxes end up in the shower/tub
  11. New injectors AGAIN...NO New filter quite maybe. New plugs not with out looking at the old ones carefully, their easy to clean with a propane torch. Try a gas dry product first to remove any possibility of water in the fuel, then the Techron injector cleaner. Dry gas...https://www.walmart.com/ip/ISO-HEET-28202-Premium-Fuel-Line-Antifreeze-Water-Remover-Injector-Cleaner/16879747?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1122&adid=22222222227009478515&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=52923942311&wl4=pla-84844374791&wl5=9029305&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=101593696&wl11=online&wl12=16879747&wl13=&veh=sem Techron...https://www.walmart.com/ip/Chevron-Techron-Concentrate-Plus-10-oz/16647989?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&wl13=1457&adid=22222222227025239943&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=71545448329&wl4=pla-161071186849&wl5=9029305&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=local&wl12=16647989&wl13=1457&veh=sem
  12. You MIGHT be able to rent a fuel pressure gauge test kit from Oreillys they have some tool they loan out. Good fuel pressure on a 22RE is 38-40lbs at idle and a max of 44 going down the road. So a 15 lb gauge is useless. ONE of the other possibilities I just remembered is a bad ignition igniter, their $$$$ so try everything else first.
  13. Bad fuel...not from rain in the camper fuel tank, but from the gas station tank. SOMETIMES the gas station fuel tank is very near empty and there is cr*p near the bottom of older tanksthat gets stirred up and sucked up by the tank pump. Most gas stations have a chunk filter but not a water separator. This why I asked if your new tank has a drain in the bottom. If It does get a qt jar and drain out some fuel and let it sit for a bit and see what in it. Clear gas or layers of stuff at the bottom. Side note never buy fuel when you see the delivery truck at a station, talk about stirring things up. Here are some cheap fuel pressure gauges, these are mechanical types so they get taped to the hood outside. There are for temporary use just to see if the fuel pressure matches the engine power surges. http://www.jegs.com/c/Gauges-Tachs_Gauges/10339/10002/-1?N=1010339+4294953073+4294806370+29&Ns=P_PrimarySecondary|0||P_SalesVolume|1&Tab=SKU. NAPA has some listed for $35, but may have to order them
  14. You are describing the classic symptoms of junk in the fuel tank. the junk floats near the surface of the fuel and as the fuel level gets lower it floats over the strainer gets sucked down and then poof, poof, cough. You don't want to know how to check for this problem. Does your new tank have a drain in the bottom like the factory tank? Semi remote possibility, just a tank of bad gas from some where on the road. A slug of water will go to the bottom of the tank and sometime will drift past the strainer, poof, poof cough as engines don't run real good on water. May try a couple bottles of gas dry. OMG now what?? Have you changed the fuel filter on the engine? Do you have anyone who can put a fuel pressure gauge in for you? A mechanical one stays outside duct taped to the hood, with an electrical one you can have the gauge inside. If the gauge drops and so does the engine, you know where to start. Other possibilities bad fuel pump, bad fuel pump wires. Other things are really weird and I'll bring them up if all else fails.
