    HELP! 22R Oil Priming

    Thanks for the advise, thought about doing tha t just didn't want to pull the pump back off. Talked with a family friend who is a machinist and he's going to loan me an oil pressure can. It'll thread into one of the oil pressure spots and with compressed air it will push oil through the whole...

    HELP! 22R Oil Priming

    Little history to start out. 1982 Toyota 4x4 22r. Just got done completely re-building my 22r engine. New pistons 20 over, new bearings, completely re-built head. I'm having problems priming the engine before start up. So far I've pulled the plugs and coil wire and cranked it over with the...

    Duel fuel- Gasoline & Propane

    Lately i'v been looking into converting my 22r to propane, but that might not be the best bet for a D.D. Been looking at " Got Propanes" web sit and saw the duel fuel kit, but the price seems a bit high. I was wondering if any one has any info on propane parts for the 22r. From what I gather...

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    Sorry no new pictures yet but all have some soon. I was wondering of what everyone thinks about running Mobil 1 10w30 in the 22r once it is all rebuilt. All run a conventional oil for break in but once everything has settled in what does everyone think about Mobil?

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    You nailed it on the head perfectly randito, KEEP IT STOCK! To many of these old trucks along with so many other old Toyota's, Land Cruiser's, and many more get ruined (imo), with all the lifts and huge tires. Now making a dependent overland vehicle is a different story and for the most part...

    So I know I started this thread to show my new to me 1982 Pickup, but if anyone else has any first gen Toyota 4x4 PICKUP'S (1979-1983)please share a photo and quick list of specs or any mods. Only Toyota Pickups though please, there's already other threads for latter year Toyota's.

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    Thanks for the advice again Overbear. I thought that the 1982 had the double roller as well but then again I'm not to sure. The plan is a complete engine rebuild, new valves, seats (if it needs them), springs, guides, resurface, along with new pistons, rings, hone or bore the block and deck the...

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    TACODOC, the 1982's had a 22r not 20r. The 20r came in earlier 79 and 80, but the 81,82 and 83 came with the 22r. For now I'm planning on leaving the 22r, but maybe latter down the road all swap in a 22re for the little extra horses.

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    Thanks for the info, overbear, but I'm not planning on lifting the old truck. I'm wanting to leave it as stock as possible. I won't be using it for rock crawling, or hard wheeling, just to go out camping and enjoy all the forest service roads here in Western Washington. I don't want to lose any...

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    Wow, seems like the general consensus is to keep the rims on the truck now. Didn't realize that those were the stock rims for that year truck. So I guess it will be worth while to just clean them up and find a good tire size to fit the 15in rim. What does everyone think? All never run anything...

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    Thanks for the input guys. And thank you tanglefoot for all the info. I'm also debating painting the truck but unfortunately there are a few rust spots, not bad cancer thought, just surface rust and I have to address those spots so they don't get worse. As for the rims I love them too, but...

    1982 Toyota Pickup

    My new to me 1982 Toyota Pickup SR5. It is all stock with a 22r and currently is sitting on little 235/75R15's. Future plans are a complete engine rebuild (currently it has 280,000 miles and really bad compression). After that going to put some 235/85R16's on it and eventually some new paint on...

    First Gen Toyota 4x4 Pickup-22r Question

    Rot box, thanks for the reply, I see that you have a 1979 hilux with a 20r. Have you swapped yours over or have you just had experience/ past knowledge of someone swapping a latter year 22re in to a first gen 4x4 Toyota pickup. The latter 22r are a little easier to obtain parts for such as...

    First Gen Toyota 4x4 Pickup-22r Question

    I have a chance to buy a 1982 Toyota pickup with little to no rust, straight as an arrow body and immaculate interior. Only issue I have is the 22r in it is dead. The early 4x4 Toyota pickups with the 22r had round intake ports, double roller timing chain and a different deck height than the...

    1st gen 4runner replacement leaf springs

    Not looking for a lift at all, that's why i'm steering clear of the ome, not because there a bad product or anything just lifts the runner to high. As for what the runner will be used for, weekend camping trips, back country explore/adventure rig. Basically a wannabee expedition/overland truck...

    Would you buy and build a Gen 1 4Runner with a 22re and a AUTO?

    W56 manual tran's spec.s- 1st 3.954, 2nd 2.141, 3rd 1.384, 4th 1.00, 5th .850 A-340F Auto tran's- 1st 2.80, 2nd 1.52, 3rd 1.00, 4th O/D .71 With the auto tran's you don't get the low gear like 1st in the w56. IMO the lower gear ratio of the manual w56 tran's is huge especially if you want to...
