Spent all day working on the motor today. Got it in and running. Ended up finding out that the o-ring on the oil pump is leaking, so I'm going to have to pull it apart again. Everything actually went pretty smooth.
Got the oil leak fixed. I pinched the o-ring when I put the oil pump on this time around. Good thing I have tons of leftover gaskets and such from doing this so many times.
I adjusted the valves today to what the FSM says, 8 and 10, but they are still loud as hell. I wonder if this is just the way the engnbldr 261c cam is. I was reading through other posts on other forums and some say to tighten the gap to 6 and 8. Any thoughts on this?
On a side, sad, note. The AC stopped working. Guess I'm going to have to take it somewhere to get converted over to r134a.
Well... I got the A/C fixed. And adjusted the valves 4 or 5 times. Still kept hearing a tick. After many nights of investigation, I think my dad and I have narrowed it down to the #4 intake valve. I think when the bearings went, that piston may have hit the valve.
So I get to pull the motor apart again.
I so wish I would have just bought a motor instead of trying to fix this one.
The sad part is that I can pull the motor and strip it down to a short block in under 2 hours by myself. And can put it back together and in the truck in under 4. I'd rather it run and not know anything.

My name is Patrick and my family and I just reclocated from San Diego, CA to Columbus, OH.
A bit about me- I love fishing, camping, and wheeling. I've been a Toyota nut for as far as I can remember. I currently rotate my driving between an '04 TRD Tacoma and a '99 4Runner Limited 4X4...
most of you know and have seen pics but for those who don't I traded away the Tacoma. New truck is a 85, 22re, 5 speed, single 4.7 case, ruf, 63's, exo ect, ect....southern truck, rust free. It needs some fine tuning but it a whole lot more capable than the Tacoma
Picked up a parts truck to replace the cab on my 84 pickup.
1986 Toyota Pickup
22RE with A/C
frame is solid except for the passenger side front, rear spring hanger
Still not sure if I'm doing a cab swap, or just moving everything from the 84...
