Red's Beat'm'up Truck - '91 Toyota Pickup
« on: May 21, 2019, 08:13:36 PM »
Thank you Kijiji for continuing to supply me with cheap heaps.
What I've picked up... A carbed 22R, 2wd, 5 speed, reg cab beast of a truck.







"Did not run when parked". Previous owner says it was cooked and needs a rebuild. So, rebuild it shall have.

I think I'm most excited for the 5x114.3 and small centre bore, it's gonna get some grossly overqualified wheels.

What happened to the civic?
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.

Probably turned to dust after hitting one too many potholes.

I'm forecasting a prediction that the only thing this truck is going to beat up is your wallet.

Probably turned to dust after hitting one too many potholes.

Also also yes.

What happened to the civic?

So actually, it was sold to my brother cause he wrote off his car. It was only gonna be lent out like the dollar store where it is, but he liked it too much.



So rescued it today












And something totally awesome


I can run 225/45r17 tires on this thing... I happen to have a spare set of firehawks in this size... also it's the same size as the Altezza.

I'm betting none. Because otherwise would imply there is some steel left.

But, you don't want to paint the truck yellow and make it look like this other famous truck I have heard about?? :O

Uhhh


It doesn't *look* rusty, but that'd be because nothing's there.



Started the disassembly process


That... Is not oil. That's Toyota red coolant. Yay.

Mmmm, greasy.


Exhaust out


Rad... Rad is bad. Yay galvanized radiators

The corner would be too good for it. It deserves the scrap heap.

Did some more work on it last night. Exhaust manifold was removed


Noticed some front end damage
 

And discovered a mechanical fuel pump


Removed the alternator, promptly dropped it into the oil, and then began looking for a new one.

Answer the question


When the truck actually runs, reliably, for a month or more. If it's being a pain, efi.

Are you upgrading your standards for all your vehicles, or just the 'yota?  ;D

You don't have to call a tow truck, if your vehicles never leave the garage.  ;D
