MPI Safeties

Newb to the group & to hilux as well. Almost got a '93 surf but need to know where you have gotten the safeties done on the 3L TD's. Many shops run in fear from them even though it has already been registered in MB.

I'm not from Winnipeg, but my wife is. We get up there every other year or so.

Currently planning a drive next year in my 4Runner. We usually stay with my Wife's brother, who lives near the university and the Bomber's new stadium.

Joined the forum while in San Diego (where I'm from) but have been living in Winnipeg for two years. Would love to hit some trails with other T4R.ORG'ers this summer...

I've got a 2008 Galactic Grey SR5 V8 and love it...

Hello all, I've been driving my 96 limited around the city for 3 years now.

A heads up for anyone with a 3rd gen looking to refresh their suspension, I grabbed the OEM quality Monroe quickstruts for the front end from Rock Auto for $118 CAD each!
Not sure if they are still that price but that is a steal compared to the equivalent struts on other vehicles on rock auto even.

I have a leaking steering rack right now, it looks like where the steering wheel shaft enters it. Stop leak helps but doesn't completely stop it - so if anyone knows about a low mile 3rd gen runner being parted out let me know.

I'm around Winnipeg too, but I work in oak bank so I'm sure I see a few of you around.

Hey waddaya know, my steering rack is leaking from the rag joint too! ;-) it's a forest green '98... I've found that adding more steering fluid will suffice until it's warm enough to deal with it... Almost time to start looking for parts.

I took mine to a local mechanic who works out of his home garage (has a lift in there). It was under $500 all in to replace the whole rack with a used one from a tacoma.

But this winter I found out that I had a heater core leak, leaking into my interior. It got to the point it was leaking half a liter a minute so I had to park it since I had no heated garage and didn't want to pay the labour to tear out the dash. I'll be fixing the heater core leak this summer and either keep it or sell it. Tore out the dash and got visibility on the heater core in under an hour. Probably only another hour to get it out I'm thinking so not too bad unless I'm being optimistic.

Blue '93 Runner out there is mine folks. Got some work to do on her, especially in the fuel economy hunt, but hoping to hold onto it for many years. I can't pass a 4Runner without checking it out, so pardon me for staring.
