Yes you'll have to press out the hub to get the studs out. I used a hub puller like this one. https://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Duty-Drum- ... 151&sr=8-5

Inner and out hub seals are the same as front inner. Can usually find them pretty cheap on rock auto.

Radiator fan turns on via the fan switch located near the ac compressor. If its unplugged the fan will stay on all the time.

If the A/C pressure switch or the rad temp switch are missing or disconnected the fan will run all the time. The AC switch plug can be jumpered, the rad switch needs to be working or you'll overheat.

Yeah, I got a press. It's a strange design these studs holding the backing plate on.

Thanks for the info on the seals, I forgot to order those with the bearings.. Doh!

Cool, I'll have another look by the a/c compressor do you know which pins need jumping?

Thanks.

The switch would've been on the hardlines, near the firewall. It should be a 4 pin plug.

Guessing this guy? Also I'm guessing this is my switch connector... I have no memory of that switch on either car. Might need to buy one.

Rear knuckle and press doesn't work great. Made a custom tool. Call it Toyota sst 0011-1234567

Yeah the plug in that second connector looks the same as the one on my car that I had to jumper.

You wouldn't happen to know which pins?

According to my notes the light blue/black stripe & light green/black stripe wires. I made a little jumper to stick in the plug and then wrapped it all with a bunch of electrical tape.

Ditched the Motegis for a set of 17x8 +35 Drag wheels . 245 40 17 Indy 500's. Looking pretty meaty.

Reading on the forum these are supposed to fit. I'm a bit concerned about the front, and i got 5mm spacers for the rear to clear the strut.

Looking online i see a 'radiator fan switch' in the radiator... pretty sure my Mishimoto radiator does not have a spot for that, nor do i recall one on the OEM radiators on either car... So i wonder what i'm missing.


My Mishomoto has a mounting hole for the temp switch. It came with a plug.

Well radiator fan won't kick on by it self...New radiator fan switch installed. Plus jumped the a/c plug.

Got a brand new gauge cluster temp sensor too. Also doesn't work (f me right)

Got any suggestions?

There are two temperature sensors on the water neck one is for the ECU the other is for the gauge cluster. The one for the gauge cluster is basically just a spade connector. The one for the ECU is your typical Sumitomo connector.
