It's good that you didn't chose the reman engine with aftermarket parts: Aftermarket parts are garbage and I've seen those engines starting to burn oil in less than 100K.

I know many folks on this board prescribe to the "OEM or bust" mind set. I'm not one of them.
I assembled my motor with Permatex sealants, Mitsuboshi timing belt, Aisin branded water pump, GMB rollers, some Felpro gaskets, off brand valve cover gasket set, Off brand injector rebuild kits, not a Toyota clutch, calipers and rotors from Oreilly's, radiator from Autozone, radiator hoses from Napa, NGK spark plugs and blue wires. I have Ford Tranny fluid in the tranny, Valvoline in the diffs, Mobile 1 in the oil pan, and the glycol jugs say Prestone on them.
I'll use a torque wrench for the flywheel, clutch basket, and crank pulley but haven't used it for anything else and don't plan to.

I've run a few Toyota's up past 300K and several other brand rigs up past 250K.
I don't have any fears about the longevity of my work or the materials I've chosen.

What do you think about aftermarket metal 22R timing chain guides compared to OEM plastic ones?

I have done 2 head gasket and 1 engine rebuild on 3.4 4runners over the couple of years I found the job not all that bad I always sent my heads out to the machine shop it was easier than trying to figure out the shim and bucket system and I know the valves would be done to. Along with the standard tools I recommend getting or borrowing torque wrenches, Harbor Freight puts them on sale from time to time I got the 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 the crank shaft nut is usual higher than most 1/2 Torque Wrenchs. Another tool U will need is a Die for the exhaust nuts. It helps to clean them up before putting them back together also there is one exhaust stud on the passenger side that always gives me trouble I think the Die it's 6 mm x1.25. Expect to replace at least a couple of nuts and maybe a stud.

Let me tell you about the GMB stuff and 555 ball joints:

I installed GMB U-joints into a Hilux front pinion joint and didn't even used 4wd (it got free locking hubs). It just started to show severe play even not being used. I installed a GMB tensioner bearing into my 92 corolla and it lasted just 50K.

Then 555 Ball joints marketed by many auto part stores. Those 555 won't last no more than 20K miles and a friend of mine had to redo it due to LBJ failure in 20K miles.

Mitsuboshi is the OEM T-belt belt supplier for toyota, so does AISIN and Denso for mechanical and electrical parts respectively. I am doing the rear axle bearings/seals and I stick to all OEM parts though the bearing is 5X expensive than NACHI or KOYO.

Aftermarket (not OEM supplier) is simply garbage and dangerous: There are numerous examples we all have experienced: Just don't waste money on cheap parts and do the job over and over again.

I would suggest to make yourself life easier, replace the truck, sell or part-out.

Gives me hope. My wifeís 95 2nd gen just blew a gasket. Hydrolocked with coolant, now cleared out. Fortunately everything seems to be moving. Looking forward to the work.
