Operation Teardown 85 Ex cab 22re
So finally progressed enough on this truck to actually start to make a half way decent "Build Thread". I've been wanting to get a truck like this for a while. Finding one like this on the East coast is few and far between. Half of them are trashed from them country folk beating them to death 4 wheeling or used and abused farm trucks and really or are rusted out. This one has a perfect cab no rust on it at all on it. Frame just has a little surface rust not much though considering it's age.
1984/1985 Toyota Truck Extra-Cab 4x4 with pretty low miles (actual mileage has left me) at this present time. Motor seems very stout and does not leak oil besides a little out the back of the valve cover so far, should be able to fix that... Made a 250 mi trip home from purchase at 60-75 mph without a hiccup. 19-20.5 mpg there and back. Axles are stock besides the rear is out of an IFS truck.
Plans (purchased goods)
* Dual Cases not sure if I'll put a 4:7 in there or two stock ones just yet,
already have another stock case, just need adapter.
* High steer + ifs box
* Bumpers & sliders (I'll make)
* 37 km2 17" tires depends on $
* ARB front and rear lockers
* E-brake via transfer case
* 3 link front leaf rear
* Body mounts, Engine mounts, and Transfer case mounts
* S.S. Brake lines
* bucket seats
Need to do
* Rebuild axles + run breather hoses
* move hangers for RUF and 63's
* move the exhaust towards the rear of the cab and possibly redo entire
exhast from manifold back
* Sandblast the frame + bed + parts of the cab
* Repaint the frame + bed + cab
* Bob the bed
* Clean up the wires only behind the radio with soldering (I hate "birds nests)
* Reseal the front window cause it looks like poo and get the rubber seal for
* Fix rear sliding window (new rubber seals)
* Line-x/herculiner/undercoat the inside of cab and the underneath of cab.
* Make half doors from extra set of doors and make quick disconnects from
the hinges also.
* Clean up hole previous owner had CB running through out of roof right
before the 3rd light
* Fab up high steer brackets etc.
* Cut off all extra hanger clips and crap on the frame not in use etc
* Fab up skids and dual case skid
* This list will probably never end
First thing I did was to replace the Thermostat due to the Temp gauge not moving much from 100% cold even when it was 170 Degrees +. The heat didn't work good at all either so I figured I'd try that before i swapped sensors or heater cores.. It blew luke warm air if that which sucked for the 4.5 hr trip home in 30 degree weather. The thermostat also fixed the high idling problems it was having, since now is not running in OPEN loop the entire time.
Temp has risen quite a bit more. I never drove it down the road just let it idle there to we will see how much it improves while driving
While it was a rainy day I decided to take the bed off and the cab off as well. The interior was gutted as well and will be cleaning the inside up and putting some herculiner/line-ex on the inside and bottom of the cab. I'm going to sandblast the entire frame and then give it a good coating of paint with rust inhibitors in it as soon as this weather drys up a little bit.
Here is out cab removal process. Don't laugh we could have lifted it if we had another person easily and taken it off but I'm 6-3" and buddy's about 5-7 ish so it was to this disadvantage to lift it up enough to clear the motor. It took about 1.5 hrs so get it to the ground once everything was disconnected from the engine. That's going to be fun putting it all back together. Good thing buddy has another 22re we can compare stuff in the driveway if needed. I did have to cut 2 of the heater hoses to get motor disconnected from the cab unfortunately. Seems like it will be a 25$ uh oh.....I think the cab weighs close to 300 lbs and the bed 200lbs I'm not sure just a guess..
Kinda funny - we had cab lifted up till it was hitting the roof and still lacked about 6-10" to clear the motor. Buddies idea to let all the air out of the tires which lowered it just enough to push it out of the way.... When the cab goes on I'll be getting about 4 people to do it.
Ended up fiddling around with the cab a little and took the side and rear glass out. Need to try and get new seals for the rear glass on the bottom and top and right in the middle. They have seen their better days. Also if I decide to sandblast parts hard to sand on the cab less chance of scratching the glass.
Spend the past couple days grinding on it and cutting that ugly front bumper off it. Cutting a lot of useless tabs, brackets, and just cleaning up the frame for sandblasting. Also took the push pull steering off as well.
Decided with all the sandblasting I'll be doing and how good the motor runs at the moment I wanted to go ahead and pull the motor and not risk getting media all it it some how. Motor should get pulled this weekend, just have to get picket from friends house.
Testing out the blaster..
Looks good to me for just the little while i tried it out..
Interior at the moment..
