My Toyota Motorhome

  1. I'm in the middle of this job right now, and, unfortunately, it's every bit as tough as I've heard. Still, I know that a lot of folks have been talking/thinking about doing it, so I'm posting up a few photos that might prove helpful. (I actually have quite a bit of video recorded too, but am not sure now if I'll end up posting that on YT or not...) Notes: Give yourself a lot of time to do this job. I could see this taking a couple days of labor for the average joe, plus you need to measure and order shims, wait for delivery, etc. Try to label everything well and put parts/bolts/nuts in baggies with notes, to keep track of everything. Plenum has a lot of stuff attached to it and around it. Shims are 34mm in diameter and vary in height, of course, to set the clearance. One source of shims: https://www.yotashop.com/valve-shim-toyota-4runner-pickup-truck-t100-v6-3-0l-3vz-e-1988-1995-valve-shim-3vzvalveshim My 91 Warrior has about 83,000 miles on it and I'm finding that all of the 6 intake clearances are good (borderline, but good), and all of the 6 exhaust clearances are way tight. Pretty much the norm, from what others have said. I think the recommended special tools are a must on this job, but even those can't help on some of the difficult shims, next to the firewall. In those situations, when the brake booster (or something else) is making things very difficult, use a 3/16" allen wrench to lever the bucket down—because there won't be enough room to use this wraparound-the-cam wrench tool. After pulling a shim for measurement, put it back in the bucket before you turn the engine again. I've seen bad stuff happen before when a cam lobe catches the edge of an empty bucket. starting the project driver's side view clearance specs from hood label intake plenum removed (plug those holes immediately and clean/vac surrounding area well!) driver's side valve cover removed: cylinders 2 / 4 / 6
  2. Hi All, New to the Forum and i would have posted in the classifieds, but that section isn't loading for me. Apologies if i violated a forum rule. I purchased my 1990 Toyota Americana in March of 2019. It had a water leak in the back where the fiberglass and subfloor separated and let water in. This was hidden by the carpet under the bathroom sink when we purchased it. Upon repairing, I had disconnected the generator, removed it and began on repairs to generator box as well. The fuel line to the generator leaked overnight and when I returned to the rig the next day and opened the generator box, the fuel/vapors sparked and the RV burned to the ground. Sadly, we only drove the rig about 150 miles from where we purchased it to our home. That being said, we had some parts that were pulled out of the rig before it burned and some others that the fire didn't appear to damage. See below of items for sale: 2.8 Onan Microlite gasoline generator. It had less than 30 hours run time according to the rig before it went up in smoke. My uncle was able to get the generator to run. It was not in the rig when it burned. $1,000 OBO Aqua Magic IV RV toilet. $30 OBO Horizontal Propane Tank. Visual Requalification completed 8/16 (See pic). Manual is toast, but I believe it is a 20#/ 5 Gallon tank. $70 OBO 1990 Toyota 3.0 3VZ-E with Approximately 60,XXX miles I purchased it at 59,XXX. The fire was put out before it got through the firewall. I have service records from Toyota 2015 and 2016 for most of the work that was done including, Oil and oil filter, engine coolant flush/fill, Fuel system Service (EFI Kit), Spark plugs, wires, (R&R (Standard) not sure what R&R is...), Brake system flush, timing belt replaced, drive belt replaced, water pump replaced, distributor cap replaced, all done in 2015. 2016 the fuel pump was replaced, along with oil and oil filter and air filter being changed in March 2019 by me before I bought it. The rig would start on first try and wasn't smoking. It ran very smoothly and given the low mileage and being able to verify these services, this is why I decided to purchase it. $1,500 OBO. If I had the cash on hand to purchase an old Toyota pickup, I'd swap the motor and put it in there. Transmission can be sold as well if needed with the motor. We can negotiate a deal for both. 1 ton axle: I believe it is a full floating 1 ton and the Duallys with 6 lug. To my knowledge, they are OEMa and not aftermarket or swap. The tires on it are also in good shape from what I can tell. I don't see any physical signs of stress from the fire or melt on them. I'm asking $650 OBO for the axle. Feel free to ask me questions. The rig is in North Central Arkansas on the Arkansas/Missouri border. I've included some pics of the parts I listed. It would of made a great rig and my wife and child were looking forward to getting it on the road this month....
  3. Hey, can somebody else with a 90s V6 model chime in concerning how many quarts of ATF are used when draining/refilling the auto tranny? I just pulled the plug and drained mine—looks like every bit of 4 quarts came out, which is way more than the owner's manual seems to indicate. Thanks!
  4. For the gearheads. Link was recently restored. http://www.enginebuildermag.com/1999/05/rebuilding-the-toyota-3-0l-v6/
