  1. I'll post some more pics when the engine is running we're very close to being done
  2. So this is the throttle linkage I have on my 22R. It doesn't look like anything I've seen online. I saw one that was similar, but the person just said they got it to work and never updated the thread saying how. I've tried googling a lot but don't see any way to actually connect these, even with the included j arm plate that goes where the brass one is on the carb. Because of the poor rotation radius in the ball joint, I don't think it would be capable of opening the throttle more than 20%. Does anyone else have a throttle linkage like this?
  3. on Tuesday I'll be looking at a 1983 18' Sunrader. The owner will be selling it in a few months. He said it has 82000 miles and everything works except the fridg. l've been looking for a newer 6 cylinder toy but this one has come across my path. seems like a bargain at $3500. Besides checking: all the systems, rust, motor, upgraded axle, leaks etc. What questions should I ask and what issues with this year/model. thanks for the help!
  4. Greetings All, I am a total noob. I just purchased my very first motorhome, a 1983 Dolphin with the 22R truck. The floorplan has the door, stove, and bathroom in the rear. Any help I could get with any aspect of the thing would be greatly appreciated. I'm such a noob, I don't even know how to drive the thing yet (its manual), so that is my first step. I am also going to be cleaning it up and putting in new window coverings and possibly wood veneer floors in the meantime. The bad: There are some old water stains around the roof The gas gauge doesn't work The good: It runs! Only 38,000 miles (
  5. I have been given a 1983 Toyota Huntsman. I brought it to the shop yesterday for new tires - and... they couldn't do it. They had never seen the funny dually rims before and said their machines wouldn't be able to handle them. So... I started researching those funny rims with 5 lug nuts, and - well, learned a lot. So here we sit. I have spent the day scouring online for a used 6-lug full-floating rear axle assembly. Has anyone seen any recent listings for the axle?
  6. I am the new owner of a 1983 Toyota Sunrader. I have owned other RV's but this is my first Toyota motorhome. Can anyone point me to an owners manual or other documentation to get me started in restoration? Thanks!
  7. 45 days, 8000mi. Just put a trip report type update thing here: http://toyotamotorhome.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5382&page=5#entry49599 Trip pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/patrickandlindsey Had a blast in on our first real voyage in our toyhome, loved every minute of it!
  8. Good evening. I am considering purchasing a Toyota Dolphin for a cross country adventure. I will plan several local trips before beginning the adventure. I want the rear dinette model for better light, better seating, and less weight in the back. I know to check for leaks and to make sure the rear axle has been upgraded. I have found a 1983 Dolphin (107k mi) and a 1985 Dolphin (61k mi) both of which seem to be in good shape, both under $5k. What gotchas should I look for besides axle and leaks? What are the differences that ought to be considered? What are the most important upgrades that I'm
  9. Over the past 3 months (since the axle swap) we've been prepping our little Sunrader for her maiden voyage....wanted to share our updates (mostly genaric) if only to provide ideas for others Sandblasted, repainted all wheels and hot water heater cover(hi-temp Rustoleum inside). All new Hankook RA08 (including the 5-lug spare) and a new gravity-fed water inlet (white circular - Camping World Item# 60332)...oh and front marker light assys. (Oreillyauto.com - Part # : 18-1153-50 & 18-1153-90 | Line: TYC) Our Sunrader had a Engine Bay-mounted size 24 house battery, so I rerouted it to
  10. Looking for advice regarding best solution: Replace the old springs? I haven't located a source online. All the springs I've found were for the Toyota pickups and 4wd models. Have the old springs re-tempered somewhere? No idea where to have this done. Add helper springs? Again, none I've located online say they'll fit the MH. They're all for 4wd or pickups. Any advice will be appreciated.
