hell, even just a "basic tech of the week", pick a topic, feed it for a week, and it to the FAQ. with even moderate participation, it can build pretty quick. i'm sure i'm not the only person with pictures and such on my computer still of all sorts of random things.
Cant believe I just saw this. I know 2 people with broken elockers.Broken E-Locker side gear
Early (88-90) V6 side gears are Toyota Part Number 41331-35040 which 8in elockers (low and high pinion) use on the non actuator side. This can only be bought in a $300-500 kit of all the side/spider gears. Used to be $60 individually new but NLA individually.
Later (90+) V6 side gears are Toyota Part Number 41331-35011, same as FJ80 High pinion, Tacoma, 4runner etc. without locker also 4cyl diffs 85+. Also NLA individually in the states but can find sellers outside US.
So what do you do?
41039-34060 Spider/Side gear kit from Toyota can be found in Dubai... for a couple hundred bucks and has the near impossible to find actuator side gear with splines. Pretty steep for diff gears but is cheaper than another elocker.
And a beautiful photo it is. I noticed the slip on rotors but it was just too good to pass up showing the calipers with the different mounting. My junk is not presentable for class projects.That "internet photo" is mine. Heres another version someone did up. I used 1st gen taco rotors and ground down the hub OD so they slip on.
Thank you for the heads up!!I think this link is dead
