    I really think this is the only video of ray I have seen where he didn't use a single electric tool. taking it old school I like it 🤣

    What no battery powered tools? What is going on?

    I think those are double ended coils ( no ground connection ). I had one of those on a non-running Honda motorcycle I bought. People destroy these coils by removing one wire while running. The idea is that both spark plugs fire at the same time. If you pull one of the wires while running, since there is no path to ground, electricity will MAKE one, damaging the coil. If you should want to pull one wire, you have to replace the ground path with a spark plug or wire to ground.
    Since both ends fire at once, it makes little difference which wire is which. Since the fellow before me damaged the coil and it would take a couple weeks to get the new coil, I used two coils with a diode inline with each coil. This is because if you put the coils in parallel the spark plug with the lowest pressure will fire first and take all the energy. It worked fine with the diodes until the new coil cam in. Diodes should be rated for at lest 0.5 amps and 600 volts ( your mileage may very here, depending on the coil used ).
    Such coils can be checked with an ohm meter. Double ended coils should have no connect to ground from the secondary.

    Am I the only one who saw the twisted cable when replacing the ignition coils. one of the cables was not properly engaged. otherwise, really good job.

    I had a couple different junkyard transmissions installed in my 85 Toyota over the years. Back then (mid 90s) it was only about $500 installed for a used tranny.

    ray you look exactly like the guy from the jaysmart channel you are his doppelganger look at his channel u will agree

    At around 10.52 you neglected to refit the harness bracket at the lower starter bolt. Also at 28.39 you can see that the HT ignition lead, marked no. 2, has its plug terminal reversed when compared to the other 3 leads.

    I used to have a '86 4Runner with the 22RE motor. All the sudden one day I was driving got to a red light and the thing chugging like a lawn mower. It barely wanted to stay running. The problem would come and go the garage I took it to had it for a month or so then called and said they couldn't recreate the issue. I got it back and 4 days later it was acting up.
    Here what it was doing was every time it rained or was just wet out 2 of the 4 injectors would stop working. The insulation on two wires wore through and the water was grounding them out.
    Problem was they were in the main harness and you couldn't see them. They had to cut the whole wire open, find and repair the wires then rewrao the harness.
    Fixed… they did however call Toyotas help line to learn about the issue.
    Of course they put the phone call on my repair bill!
    It was like $150.00 or $180.00… somewhere around there.

    Frame looks really good. People would pay $15K + for that 4Runner and if the new owner knew there was a new trans and oil leaks fixed, 30k easily up here in New England.

    Do you know what I find satisfying about someone working on a car? Someone is working on a car and I am not.

    Those 4-runners were solid cars. Good on the beach too.

    Put some Lucas transmission fluid,for slipping transmission’s. I tried it when one of my car’s transmission, wasn’t shifting right.

    Im glad i choose to be a machinist

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dylan O says:

    The oil leak keeps that era Toyota frame from rusting and disintegrating. The engine probably didn't have crank seals installed during timing belt change.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Willy Automotive says:

    Oil saturated engines are a living he'll for mechanics. You handle it well. Not too many mechanics work with out their air tools. Good video.

    Starting and then shutting down means to me that the ballast resistor is broken.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Drover Moore says:

    Ballast resistor

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike bradley says:

    it fooled me

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike bradley says:

    remember broken ground

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike bradley says:

    bad ground

    so what what was the issue

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scotspie501 douglas says:

    love how you have so many snap on tools they are very expensive in the uk

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scotspie501 douglas says:

    why dont you change 1x coil pack at a time then try it lets just change anything we think it might be

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scotspie501 douglas says:

    whats a diagnostic starter do you mean a starter motor

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scotspie501 douglas says:

    do you not have bins whey would you put in footwell

    You can not smell Hydrogen because it is odorless, however Hydrogen Sulfide smells like rotten eggs

    Were any birds harmed in the oil slick?

    261,000 miles? Just shoot it now.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dick Fotoples says:

    Not your chipper self on this one.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Jacobsen says:

    You forgot the bracket for the wire on the bottom bolt of the starter

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kuntal Ghosh says:

    This car even with that broken tranny will sell for thousands of $ in Africa 🤣

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ezequiel cordero says:

    Great process of eliminating what is not wrong. Nice troubleshooting

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dr.Cosmar says:

    Audio system and no capacitor.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roskellan says:

    I had a 3 series BMW that used to do that, start then stop. It was the fuel pump relay, I diagnosed it myself, not bad 150 miles from home, all be it that it took me several hours. The following week I was in the main dealer and said the car did have a fault, repaired by myself, starting then immediately stopping. He says "the fuel pump relay" – where are these people when you need them 🙂

    You're definitely NOT a shade-tree mechanic altho a shade tree would've been nice on this one!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars c J says:

    Where I come from that pile wouldn’t be repaired, it would be scrapped/recycled. It’s a wreck…

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sherman Kearns says:

    Thanks for mentioning not to forget to disconnect the battery. Knuckleheads will try every single time

    Always read the actual coolant sensor output degrees in older Toyotas and fords. It will now run if the output is 450*
