no worries about the chain but the tensiors are the problem with them

don't matter what year as soon a it hits 150k is when you have to worry about them

i just drove it for about 1 hour,ive determined i need to pull the head.
runs flawless with radiator cap in vent position,but when i close the cap properly smoke starts bellowing out the exhaust.once she warms up really good the throttle response is weak.
at this point it could be either the head gasket or head,or both.
im fearing the head because she runs worse as she warms up....due to metal expanding when heated....a tiny crack would open.
but still not getting water in the oil,or vise versa.

im assuming i have the rf1a t case
L45 4 speed tranny

heres a few pics of the under side!





front axel

t case

rear axel

under floor board and chasis,minimial surface rust!

I think ya got stiffed and the seller new it
I didnt like how the seller posted pics with blocks and a piece of cardboard to lay on when he looked at something underneath,none the less I think it was still a good buy from a dishonest seller

Oh i agree.... The seller knew what was up,after 30 mins of talking to him and looking over the truck.... I knew his hustle.

I would had bought it for that price with a locked up engine.
Rot free body, working drivetrain....well worth it.

Damn, really? You fancy a Suzuki SJ then?

Nice buy! I personally think you'll be lucky and it just be a head gasket. I have my fingers crossed for you anywho.
So what colour you painting it?

I'd say paint it blue and it would fix itself, but it appears the original color was blue...I'm out of ideas.

I dissagree
RED would self correct all issus
blue being the dominant color of the water in the ocean.........since water is getting in the engine.....hence blue(with a lowercase)is the problem

red being 33.7% the color of fire......which is needed inside the cylinders for proper combustion

get over it man blue sucks

maybe some good news!
ive pulled the carb and intake,the intake gasket between the #1 intake valve. water port and #2 intake valve was washed out.
this allows water from the water inlet to enter #1 + #2 intake valves.
there is still antifreeze sitting ontop the intake valves.

ill still pull the head,that way i know what ive got,and do a ndt crack test,check for warpage....ect....along with some pm work.

ive ordered the rock head gasket set.....is the supplied head gasket any good?
also does the rock set come with the exhaust gasket set?

but after pulling the valve cover....the oil turned gray.....not looking good!

Tomorrow evening ill pull the head and timing setup.
Ill know more by then.
Ive got to get up for work in 6 hours.....lol.

also the 2 bbl is wired closed,just the one small barrel working.
so carb rebuild is in the future,changing all vaccum lines,along with all rubber under the hood.

i did find some rot and bad rust beneeth the battery.
this 22r has the dual timming chain.

heres a few pics!

also found some rot/rust on the cab ....under the battery,ans a few spots on the wheel wells.
the cab floor was sectioned and repaired by a body shop a few years ago.

im very excited and happy about my yota deal.
still worth the money.
i cant believe i have the legendary yota axels.....1 5/16th shafts with 30 spline,8 inch ring.....tuff little axels!
gear drive t case.......the list goes on!

I don't know if you could put it in this truck or not but I have a 1991 Yota 22R Motor that I need to get rid of if the motors in those are shot. Nice little projects you got going on!!
