  1. What's new in this club
  2. Looks like I may have stumbled onto a solution that appears to be working So I read somewhere that I adjust that potentiometer to 44.9k ohms resistance when measuring on the back side of the tach. Well when u turn as far as u can it’s 43k at the most and when we tested it was 4000 rpm right from the get go. Then I was like, it was at 33k ohms and rpm was 3000 and then 43k it’s was 4000 and with my timing light I can see it’s actual 1600rpm so change the password ohms to around 18k and it should read about right. bam! Worked like a charm
  3. Hey everyone, new to the forum and was hoping to get some help since I’m out of ideas First a little about the truck. it’s a 94 T100 4x4 DX Manual Trans with the 3.0L V6 Below is comparison of the original cluster with no tach and the new/used cluster with a tach. note: everything works with the new cluster but it shows 3000RPM when the timing light shows 1500RPMs i know there is a blue potentiometer that appears to have a Phillips screw and I thought I read u could adjust the rpm this way but to access it you would have to take the rpm faceplate off so not sure how am I suppose to adjust this tach so it’s correct? any ideas is super appreciated
  4. Had to fix a few things Both CV Axles (purchased from PartsGeek) 555 Balljoints from PartsGeek 555 Idler Arm from PartsGeek Clutch Master & Slave Cylinder from Marlin Crawler ASIN Clutch and a Flywheel from Marlin Crawler Noticing gas leak around where the gas tank is.. need to check into that Also want to change the basic gauge cluster to one with a tach from an SR5 model. Clusters on eBay for anywhere from $140-$220 but you need to know if you have an electronic speedo or cable ran speedo. Need to bring the truck in the garage and address the gas leak first. A new Toyota gas tank runs around $700 but I believe I can fix it for less but unfortunately I just filled the sucker up. Note there was no gas leak until I filled it up so its probably a hole somewhere near the top of the tank.
  5. So I acquired this 1994 Toyota T100 DX Longbed 4x4 with the 3.0L engine and Manual 5spd Trans. Runs good and it appears to have had the timing belt and water pump replaced and a fresh tune up but it idling high. Clutch pedal doesn't disengage. You push the pedal to the floor and it doesn't return to the original position. The bed is pretty rusty on the outside. The bed itself seems okay. Frontend is loose (needs balljoints and possibly idler arm)

  7. The First Generation of Tacoma’s
  8. The first Full Size Toyota Truck called the T100 but did you know the T100 wasn’t really built by Toyota. Knowing that its own experience manufacturing full-size pickups wasn’t very thorough, Toyota farmed out engineering and manufacturing to Hino, a Toyota subsidiary that’s primarily responsible for commercial vehicles, buses and heavy trucks. When the T100 debuted in 1993, its sole engine was a 3.0-liter V6 that made just 150 horsepower. While power bumped to 190 hp in 1995, Toyota still didn’t give it a V8 — just a larger V6. And a 4-cylinder model was even offered beginning in 1994. The T100 added a dealer-installed supercharger option in 1997, bringing power to 245 hp.

  13. The first generation of Toyota trucks The Hilux started production in March 1968 as the RN10 in short-wheelbase form with a 1.5 L inline-four engine, generating a maximum power output of 77 PS (57 kW; 76 hp) in Japanese market specification. In Japan, it was available at the Toyota Japan dealership retail chains called Toyota Store and Toyopet Store. The modification to the engine was enough for a claimed top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph). The 1.5-litre engine was upgraded to a 1.6 L inline-four in February 1971. In April 1969, a long-wheelbase version was added to the range. The short-wheelbase version also continued in production for many more years. The long-wheelbase version was not sold in the North American market until 1972, allowing the Datsun Truck to maintain a strong market presence. The Hilux was offered as a replacement to the Toyota Crown, Toyota Corona, and Toyota Corona Mark II based pickup trucks in Japan, as the Crown, Corona, and Corona Mark II were repositioned as passenger sedans. In spite of the name "Hilux", it was a luxury vehicle only when compared to the Stout. The Hilux was engineered and assembled by Hino Motors to replace the earlier vehicle that the Hilux was derived from, called the Briska in the niche beneath the larger and older Stout – it replaced the Stout fully in some markets. For the North American market, the only body style was a regular cab short bed and all were rear-wheel drive. It used a typical truck setup of A-arms and coil springs in front and a live axle with leaf springs in back. A four-speed manual transmission was standard. Engines Global markets: 1968–1971: 1.5 L (1,490 cc) 2R I4 1971–1972: 1.6 L (1,587 cc) 12R I4 North American markets: 1969: 1.9 L (1,897 cc) 3R I4, 85 hp (63 kW; 86 PS) 1970–1972: 1.9 L (1,858 cc) 8R SOHC I4, 97 hp (72 kW; 98 PS) 1972: 2.0 L (1,968 cc) 18R SOHC I4, 108 hp (81 kW; 109 PS)
  14. The reason why nobody talks about these things is that they were only available in the U.S. for a handful of years in the 1960s—between 1964 and 1969 according to the Truth About Cars, though Toyota’s website seems to imply that sales stopped in 1967, and I can’t seem to find any U.S.-spec 1968s or 1969s anywhere on the interwebs. The Stout shared its platform with the Toyota Dyna until 1968, when the Dyna was given its own platform, called the Toyota "U". In Japan, it was sold at Toyota Japanese dealerships called Toyopet Store. Engine: 1.5 L R I4 (RK45); 1.5 L 2R I4 (RK43, ... Curb weight: 1,420 kg (3,131 lb) Wheelbase: 2,600–2,800 mm (102.4–110.2 in)
