    i think you are better off starting a new one. the old one has been in need of maint. for a while.

    I'll go ahead and the brake bible i put together the other day, built off a few different threads I had and sort of cleaned up and combined. I gave reference and credit for the people i quoted

    https://www.forum.4x4north.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=200

    edit: i still need to add rear brake information as that thread is pretty heavily focused on front brakes, but it just takes time and effort

        basically.

        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.

          Yah, your right... I have pics back to the year 2000 with a ton of random builds and whatnot... highsteer, spring packs, even a bunch of IFS junk.

          Lemme change the post text... good IDEA!

                  and obviously the cheapest and best (in my opinion which is heavily biased due to the price) 5th stud it with scrap you have in the garage

                  edit: "how to 5th stud"

                  Draw a line along the casting marks where it is mostly flat and easy to drill

                  Drill your hole for your bolt that you are using. 1/2"? sure, sounds good to me.

                  With your bolt as a guide, tighten down a nut and weld it in place, doesn't need to be anything crazy, just enough to keep it from spinning.

                  Install the knuckle, tension it properly now or later, i try to set the preload first because it makes me feel better. then put some flat plate down, 1/8" or better or whatever you have laying around

                  and then connect your plate to your steering arm. It can be like this, it can be along the length like a wide piece of angle, it can be super long to get good leverage, the options are limitless. Don't try to just use a piece of regular angle stock because it isn't 90* between surfaces, if you do use angle stock, get a thick piece (1/4"?) so that you can grind the hell out of it and make the angles match

                    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.
