    1983 720 4x4 King Cab Build Thread

    I would get some Por-15 rust paint , it will fill those holes and provide protection . The. Seam seal everything

    Auto locking hubs

    Replacing them with aftermarket hubs? Did they replace CV axles also? Anyone want to tell me what the outer snap ring does ?

    Auto locking hubs

    Anyone tell me if the manual locking hubs (OEM), are self contained units? Anyone have pics of their manual lockers and how they break down on the end of the CV. SURELY someone has knowledge about the locking hubs

    Rear Window: The Solid vs Slider Debate

    The idea of options for ventilation and utility make me want to convert to a slider. You can still purchase them new for reasonable . I’ll just keep my solid glass if I want to go back. I think with the standard cab the slider makes a little more sense because it’s so easy to reach . You could almost grab a drink from your cooler in the bed.

    Nope- no extra snap ring at the end for this truck. It’s a transition year 5/83, so I got a little of everything .

    I noticed the Toyota’s run a 26 spline shaft. Anyone compare hubs ?

    Chooses are slim on the manual lockers. I was going to try and find some manual lockers in a JY, but I don’t think I can get all the parts to make them work( I.e , clutch part)

    Tried searching and haven’t found much info on rebuilding or repairing these. The FSM is terrible on this subject with just vague pics and not a lot of info. Since I won’t being using this truck for any off- roading I’m inclined to just roll with the auto hubs. Any good threads out there on this subject ? Heres some pics of what I have. The FSM shows an extra C clip that I didn’t have . The FSM doesn’t describe the “washers” well either. The only C clip I have was to hold the CV in place .

    I’ve put a weld bead on there. I plan on using seam sealer when I’m done all my patch work. Probably POR-15 everything then seam sealer .

    The final final piece of the puzzle. The power steering pump has been rebuilt and installed. I guess the AC could go on there too! The engine seemed so small when it was just the block, now it’s grown into this tall , big 4 banger

    squeeling power steering pump

    No- but the shaft can wear out . I just rebuilt one where the seal had ate into the shaft . Shaft could be making noise turning in pump
