Subframe is in, installed a new hood latch cable, cleaned up the e-brake cables, reinstalled a few bits on the fire-wall, bought a whiteline rear sway bar, a new A/C condenser, and my new coils (yes 4 of them) came in (pictured below)

PS Pump Rebuilt!

Image

More pictures tonight, I have fixed my engine mount dilemma. Rear end is about complete, two of the spherical bushings when I was freezing/heating them in didn't go in all the way, so I'm searching for an appropriate sized press to finish putting them in before I can finish. Anyone got any good ideas? I really don't wanna dig through Toyota SPX to spend $150 for a stupid spherical bushing press...

This link http://www.planetcampbell.us/SphericalBearingReplacement.html has some good notes and tips. One of those days I'll be doing it myself.

I tore up one bearing already trying it that way and had to buy another, turns out that sockets have a nice little tendancy to slip and tear the rubber boot. I may head to ACE hardware tomorrow to try and find a better fitting socket, but my hopes arent high.

I believe I used a 3-jaw puller instead of the 2-jaw one, which keeps things in line much better. Good luck!

Yep, 3 Jaw also, Ive just got to find a socket i guess that doesnt tear them up. I got 2 of the 4 in all the way by heating up the spindle and freezing the spherical bearing then tapping them in. Worked like a charm except I wasnt fast enough with two of them...

Relocating the PS reservoir too... not sure why they didnt put it here from the start tbh... I have to make an ACE hardware run for some sheet metal screws to attach it... hence the duct tape.

Turns out we had the springs replaced two years ago and the retard installing them put in two that were mismatched and the wrong strength. It wore out the door unevenly as well as overworked the lifting mechanism. A few months back the lift motor broke, we replaced it, then this happened...

Maybe an impact socket, which without the plating is less likely to slip; maybe even cut the end off so it sits flat? Appropriate sized Shed-10 pipe? The picture in the link looks like the socket could possibly rotate as the puller is being tightened. I shaped and center punched some 1/4" steel stock to sit over the hole and apply pressure to that. Just some thoughts of the top of my head.

I got it figured out... A 1 1/16th 12 point socket fits best...

Plus I figured out how to remove and install the rubber bush without damaging it...

Cool.. Did you ever get a chance to finish the pwr steering reservoir? Curious to see how it came out as I'm trying to figure out a solution for the 165s as well.
