Great Find

So i might be able to make a great buy, found an 87 extra cab SR5 with a 22-RTE. I'm still waiting for the seller to call me back about it.

The Bad:
-busted Speedo (stuck at 203k)
-water leaks from heater pipe at block
-broken parking brake cable (he has the new one)
-busted CV boots, both sides
-broken handle/lock mechanism on passenger door and tailgate
-leaky master cylinder
-cracked windshield
-driver's side window motor broken

The Good:
-2.4l 22RTE
-runs
-newer tires
-minimal body damage
-it's Arizona, so I can only assume rust is non-existant
-he only wants 700 bones for it

here's a link to the ad, let me know what you guys think. I'm going to check it out with my buddies from work who are crazy about these trucks. Planning to get it running good and use it as a DD until i have the money to SAS it, put in a better turbo, or maybe swap a 3rz into it.

yea that's what Ted at engnbldr said. I'm looking at his parts to rebuild the motor, since I don't know it's history and the whole truck is costing me the same as a rebuild anyway.

hey quick question; the diff in my v6 will work in the rear of this 4cyl no problem, right? i mean, it's the same housing, so if anything it'll be stronger than it needs to be?

The turbo center sections and the V6 center sections are the same in strengh. I may have missed it but what yr is the turbo? Basicly the 85 and older housings are narrower than the 86 and newer housing.

It's Stock I swear

thought i corrected myself earlier, my bad. turned out not to be a turbo, just the regular 4cyl. any of you guys hear of putting the 3-core radiator from a 3.0 on these for better cooling? i want to use as much off of my truck back home as i can

The third will bolt up no problem, the radiator should as well.

how about the marlin crawler front tube bumper? as far as I can see in the pics on their site, the only difference is that on the 3rd gen trucks, there is the extra brackets on the side, in addition to the three bolts on the front crossmember (that are also on the 2nd gen trucks).

I run a V6 rad. on a 22re, frame width should be the same, I bolted up a 3rd gen cab to a 2nd gen frame. The bumper might be alittle wide for the 2nd gen body, but it should work. Also run the V6 brke booster, its more better

nice, good to know. I'll probably end up having to take leave to drive the 87 home in the spring sometime (after my buddies here help me rebuild the engine and all that) and cannibalize my 91, and either install the parts there, or haul them back in the bed of the 87. it'll take probably 2-3 days driving each way, but in the end i think it'll be worth it.

so far, the things i plan to do are:
-engnbldr head/cam/master rebuild kit + water pump
-replace master cylinder (leaking)
-replace e-brake
-fix the leaky water pipe
-new speedo/cluster
-interior overhaul
-paint and tint
-take the IFS lift off

the guys i work with have been doing rebuilds for years and havne't fucked up anything yet, and they're really knowledgable on the toyotas (one has an 86, the other had an 86 and 88, all SAS'd and built). If it comes down to it, i'll have a shop put the bottom end together and time it, but i dont think it'll get to that point.

what I want to take off my 91 3.0 back in PA:
-front axle
-all reusable SAS parts
-rear diff
-hi-steer
-brake booster
-radiator
-doors (for half-doors)
-marlin bumper
-stereo and speakers
-CB + antennae
-anything else i can cannibalize

I'll post up my progress here as the project gets rolling, i thank you guys for all the help you've been over the past few years, and i'll definitely give you all first dibs when it's time to part out the old hag sitting in my mom's driveway.

here are some pics of the truck, it's still in the PO's driveway, i should be picking it up in the next two days.








anyone know what the wires sticking out of the dash in the above picture are?

how about the wires sticking out below the radio bezel?




the glove box and gauge cluster surround are there, as well as the door panel, they are just in the bed of the truck. and don't even start on the dirt, that crap is everywhere down here. I left the windows cracked on my jeep and the whole interior had a fine coating of the stuff after 3 hours.

Those wires are not factory and most likely can be pulled with no issue, just trace them and clean them up.

Maybe it is just the angle of the picture, but that doesn't look like a 22RTE, looks like a 22re?

Looks like a good base to start with and build.

posted a while ago, the cragslist ad was done by his friend, mistakenly put down that it was a turbo. just a standard sr5 22re, but still i'm not complaining. however, do you know if the cluster from the turbo sr5 will plug into my non-turbo plugs?

haha yea it's pretty gross in there... the driver seat is kind of busted, so i'm going to swap in a recaro seat i pulled from a Surf (4runner) over in Japan. drove it today for the first time, and jeeze it's got a touchy clutch. maybe it's just me, two years of not driving at all, and the rest of the time driving automatics. I'm waiting on a guy in Reno to ship me an sr5 gauge cluster that i got from him for $50, the one in it now has a busted speedometer/odometer (as previously stated). Can't wait to start digging into this, I just don't want to push my luck driving it around with the leaky heater pipe, master cylinder, and coolant/oil mixture.

washed all the pieces i could get off the dash



took the seats out, but the Recaro one I have doesn't fit, the brackets are about 1/2 inch too narrow. I don't have access to any metal bending or welding tools, except the table vice we have at work, some wood, and a grinder maybe. Any of you guys know how hard it'd be to refurbish the factory sr5 buckets? from what i've read, they are pretty saute-after in our community.

if you keep running it with water in the oil it will ruin the engine if it hasn't already.. so my advice to you is to not run it anymore and drain that milky oil out of it and get the problem fixed before your replacing a good engine with a minor problem..

once I get the money I'm going to order engnbldr's master rebuild and rv head with the 261 cam and a new water pump and timing cover. we have an engine stand and crane and I can keep it here at the hobby shop on base for 50$ a week as long as I work on it daily. for the three of us to do it it should take a few days with work interfering. I'm saving about 1200 for all parts and any miscellaneous stuff we come across that needs to be replaced.

so I traced the wires coming from out of the dash, one is a ground, one is power, and one is for a switch. the PO said the guy he got it from had it wired for an electric fan. it never installed it. there's also a thick wire (looks like 8 or 6 gauge) going from the battery + terminal under the motor. would this be the starter's power cable?

Also, mark, I only drove it about a mile from the PO's house to my buddy's house, and there it sits. not planning on moving it under its own locomotion until its got a quadruple bypass surgery and blood transfusion (high five to whoever understands what I mean)

Those doors wont fit, totally different body style. The bumper may be wider than the 2nd gen body is. I know the 3rdgen cab is wider.

i was going to try to use the doors to make half-doors, but if they won't fit then i'll sell them to whoever wants them. that thread is still about a year away though. and if the bumper is too wide, i'll just chop it and cap it. again, if it doesn't work it'll be for sale. thanks though.

that's what i'm expecting to pay total on everything, not what i'm getting charged from EB. that includes getting the block decked, cylinders checked, bottom end getting assembled (i dont have access to machinist's calipers, dopler gauge, ring grinder, or any other special tools needed to blueprint an engine), probably a clutch job, and the miscellaneous parts it already needs like a gauge cluster and interior pieces, new doors, etc etc......

however, all this needs to wait until the wifie's car is running right.

Not much progress to report, finally got out the dash pad, that's the last piece i was stuggling with to remove. Took out the carpet, scrubbed it with dish soap real good and sent it thoguh the washer. Looks a lot better, but still kind of busted with a few holes where my heel would sit. Going to remedy this with weathertec floor mats.

In other news, I found out I'm going to pick up rank on the 1st of the month, so that's a good thing. little extra cash to get this truck back into service so the wife and I don't have to rely on my jeep. Hope to have it all buttoned up and running right by Thanksgiving. I'll post pics of the interior once I paint and reinstall everything.
