Re: Lit'lphant - Toyota's Hemi V8

I has been a while....... the engine has finally been torn down to the last nut and bolt. The good news is all the bearings show little or no sign of wear (YEAH!), the oil pump, and housing also show no sign of wear(YEAH!), and the final bit of good news is the timing chain, and tensioners show only...

Nicely done! I always thought the manufacturers should have used threaded fitting instead of pressed-in tubes. Not that I've had issues with Toyotas in the area, but I've had problems with many other manufacturers, especially German autos. @$!?)*$# Volkswagen! along those lines... German Fords too....

Re: OST-053: Massaging a 20V Blacktop

20V shim tolerances are pretty bad. I've now had new, as well as old shims, and in some cases the shims vary by as much as .001" (up to as much as +, or - .0005" either way). I have purchased shims now from a supplier here in the USA, as well as directly from Japan. http://ost.ebeans.ch/al...
