  1. Up towards the filler neck so that any fuel in it drains back to the tank. It has to remain clear so that air in the tank can vent as fuel is added.
  2. NOT mine. From Facebook:- " Custom Impressions did the work; same day install with a couple of weeks notice. They have all the decals on file now and can adjust color if you want the orange/yellow/brown scheme too. $295 for vinyl; $60 in labor [1 hour]. $379 total." https://www.facebook.com/cippct/?hc_location=ufi 1110 W 5th St 52353-0026 Washington, Iowa 319-653-7224
  3. 3.0 V6 has a timing belt. Toyota Maintenance Schedule shows 60k miles to change. What they don't also mention is the 28 year AGE of your belt. I have yet to see an 'age' interval for timing belts in North America, they do in Europe. Never seems to be greater than 10 years and that would be with improved rubber technology in the last 30 years. I ASSUME Continental uses the same materials and technology in all their belts so I ASSUME the different intervals are those recommended by the various vehicle manufacturers. At least the 3VZE is a non-interference engine, but when the belt breaks, there's no warning. The engine just stops dead as though you'd switched off the key. Murphy's Law says it will happen miles from nowhere in the middle of a snow storm and far from any repair facility who won't rip you off. Best done in the comfort of your own driveway or at a trusted shop. Timing belt replacement chart.pdf
  4. At least the rear door/hatch appears intact and not replaced with a piece of plywood. The interior was always kind of 'minimalist'.
  5. Some time between 1983 and 1986 (perhaps with the introduction of the FF axle, 137" WB), fuel tank changed from 16 to 17 gallons.
  6. Seems you should start looking for a new switch. If it was a fuse, neither side turn signal would work.
  7. I guess this link will work for a while. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/denver/search/?callsite=commerce_mktplace_www_hoisted_pdp&hoisted_item=449311528996446&ref=global_search_marketplace_pill_tab&query=dolphin
  8. I've a few photos on my HD that I saved from the 'net as an '85 Granville.
  9. I came across this and thought I'd post the link. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cIgG4Z0IFDWf3BHaG4xjhLg1KUQ8l_pq/view?mc_cid=03bdfca918&mc_eid=f01e19d575
  10. Apparently you should be looking a light lens made from the same plastic as drinking straws or single use shopping bags.
  11. Places you could support the roof/ceiling without a 'stripper pole' in the middle of the aisle.
  12. Toyota Truck/Pickup/Hilux. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/toyota,1981,pickup,2.4l+l4,1277142 For a 1981, you might do a Search for 'Axle Recall' before purchasing.
