Hi all:

I know this is probably in the incorrect forum; but, I wanted to reach as many Toyota geniuses as possible!

I own a 1987 fully restored Toyota pick-up. I've put a lot of money into it since I bought it in 2000.
The vehicle only has 114,000 miles on the 22R and it runs fantastically!
I've done quite a bit of work on it myself, but recently we had to have the clutch replaced.

I'm just wondering if anyone out there can explain, or direct me to a site that to find out exactly what was done -- or should have been done, in layman's terms - perhaps with a diagram.

I know nothing about clutches , and I would like to know what was done to my truck.
I hear words like 'machining; resurface the flywheel; rear main seal; throw-out bearing" etc. but I have no idea what the procedure is!

My mechanic is obviously more action than words!

Can anyone shed some light on what the correct 22R clutch job entails (or should entail) just so I know?
The truck runs great, the pedal obviously has a different feel; but I'm also wondering what effect this may have on the ageing master and slave cylinders (remember it's a 1987!).
By the way, it's a 2WD - but I had to ask!

Many thanks in advance,
Tom in Hakalau, Hawaii

Hey Tom,
well, in laymans terms, resurfacing a flywheel means exactly that. They, for lack of a better term, sand the flywheel down to where the surface is exactly the same all the way around. That way the clutch won't slip. Now, the rear main seal is the seal on the rear of the engine above the oilpan, it's behind the flywheel. The throwout bearing is part of the clutch assembly. I don't really have any diagrams that I can show you, but you can use your imagination. You basically unbolt the transmission from the engine, unbolt the clutch assembly from the flywheel, have the flywheel resurfaced, do the rear main seal if you're going to, put a new clutch assembly in, and bolt the trans back to the engine. Hope this was helpful! Peace, Wes
