I finally had a little time this weekend to work on it.

I built a gauge panel. Im still waiting for my trans temp gauge to come in. Im not planning go running a head unit, just using my phone or mp3 player directly to an amp.



I got my power steering lines and cooler installed.







I got a few other little things done also that really are worth mentioning lol. I plan to start this thing up Easter weekend, if not before.

Nice work! What will you do for front shock mounts? Keep an eye out for frame cracks around the engine mounts, That frame web isn't as substantial there as one would think.

Thanks. Yea I wish I would have plated the engine mounts. Ive seen several ppl not plate it and be fine tho. I will be keeping a close eye on it.

As for shock mounts, I will be using the TG shook hoops. I do plan to plate them tho.

Well I spent a little time out in the shop this weekend, and this happened:



Don't mind the vibrating noise. That's the gopro vibrating on the battery.

Thanks. It was definitely music to my ears lol. I just went back and looked. I drove the 4runner into the shop on 4/1/14 to start pulling the 3.slo. Almost a year later, its finally is making noise again.

Now its time to get this thing drivable.

Well Im getting a random misfire code. So I checked the headers with a temp gun and the #3 is a lot colder than the rest. I pulled the plug and it don't seem to be getting fuel. After doing a little research and looking at things on the truck, Im starting to think the spider injection system is having issues. I need to do a little more reading on how to exactly determine if that's the cause tho. If it is, then Im going to keep working on getting it drivable then I will change the injection system.

Well I managed to pull the wiring harness out and get the braided loom mostly installed. I need to pick up some more tape to finish it up.



I ordered the majority of the parts to do the rear disk swap. Brakes will probably be the next thing I tackle.

Well I finished up the harness and installed it back in the 4runner. I decided to fire it up again to see if I could figure out what was wrong with my new oil pressure gauge. After it started, I noticed it seemed to be running a lot smoother than before. I check all the header tubes with a heat gun and sure enough, it was firing on all cylinders. Im not sure what the problem was before, but as of now its gone. Hopefully it doesn't come back.

Now its time to get this rear axle setup and the brakes installed. Maybe Ill be able to drive it around the yard in a few weeks.

Heres a couple more pics of the loom...







I started on the rear disk brake conversion. Im using Isuzu Rodeo calipers and Montero sport rotors. Ive read that the rotors worked with no mods, but I had to drill the wheel studs holes out to 9/16" for them to slip all the way over the shoulder on the studs. I have the templates made for the brackets. Im going over to a guys house this evening to cut them out since my torch is out of commission at the moment.





Seeing as how I had to remove the hood latch to fit my trans cooler, here are my new hoods pins...



I also figured out the problem with my oil pressure gauge...I had the sending unit hooked up wrong. With the way its mounted, I could really read which of the two plugs was the correct one. I hooked it up according to what I thought the instructions told me, but apparently I was wrong. I swapped the plug and it worked fine.

Time for an update...

Finished up the rear brakes




Installed a proportioning valve for the rear brakes


Built an intake out of 3" PVC




I found out the used 4.88 3rd member I bought wasn't in as good of shape as the pics the guy sent me before he shipped it, so I decided to rebuild it. So far Ive tore it down, installed the Spartan locker, and put new carrier bearings. I still need to get a bearing splitter to get the pinion bearing off tho. I plan to to do that pretty soon.




I installed my hood pins. Unfortunately I couldn't used the poly bushings. So I built some stainless plates to rivet to the hood.










I built a new rear driveshaft. We installed the CV joint off the front driveshaft on the rear driveshaft.










After I bolted the driveshaft in, this happened...


Now its time to finish up the little items and get this thing streetable.
