  1. I believe it’s called repacking the wheel bearings is what I’m trying to do. My mechanic said they just had a little to much wiggle.
  2. Ok yes this is what I need to do. I do have friend helping me who has done the repacking but not on a toyo.
  3. Hey again, i believe my front wheel bearings need adjustments. I noticed when replacing the shocks they rock back and fourth if I pull on them. Not to familiar with this job. Anything I should pay close attention to? Any recommended resources? Thanks!
  4. Hey all, my shifter is tough to get in gear on cold start ups. I’m guessing that the transmission fluid needs replacing as I’ve never done it. Think that’s the case? What is your recommendation on transmission fluid for an 83 Sunrader? thanks!
  5. Hey guys I need new rear shocks for my 83 Sunrader.. am I looking for oem shocks for an 83 pickup or was something different put on the campers? Thanks!
  6. Where is your sticker located? I wonder if I have one. overall concensus is my tires are way under inflated lol.
  7. Hey guys. Can someone explain the above mention of tire psi being 40 front and 45 rear? I have all mine set at 36 as that's the recommended according to the chart on my door. 83 sunrader 6lug rear 5 lug front. These are what I have. 6ish months old https://m.tirerack.com/tires/TireDetailsServlet?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=Y356&partnum=8R43568
  8. Sorry guys I found the answer to my question.. I suppose I'll leave it in this thread for others. According to this thread http://www.yotatech.com/f114/aisin-carb-1983-model-vacuum-diaprham-229950/ on an 83 this line is kept open unless you have AC... so needless to say that is not my problem either. I believe it is the actuator according to the diagram... bummer I really thought I found my problem. Back to the drawing board.
  9. Hmmm my EGR valve seems to be behind the engine block right next to the Vacuum Modulator. Here is my diagram from under the hood. I've located egr valve and vm. ruled them out. These things are so confusing. The second picture is a zoomed out shot of the same place for reference.
  10. Hey all I think I found a vaccume leak. Does anyone know what this is and where it's supposed to lead?
  11. I was also thinking of seafoaming. From what I gather on a carb engine 1/3 of the bottle goes in the tank. 1/3 gets sucked into the vaccume line and 1/3 down in the carb.. is that right? Anyone do this before? Positive results?
