geez you guys, let this thread die - there's lots of other blokes who know as much or more than I do about toyotas - first SEARCH, then if thay doesn't yield results, post a new topic so everyone get s a stab at it!

as for the 40s radiators, it will bolt in but I think the spigots are in different places. it's not rocket science to desolder the spigots/drill new holes/patch up, but changing tanks over takes a bit more skillz.

I have put up a new post re fitting a 15bt to a bj73 and I have done a search on this forum and on the net. I have not received the info I need yet.
Cheers.

Will a power steering box off an 80series fit onto a 60series, i.e. is the bolt pattern the same. If so are the high and low pipes the same fittings or do you need to get them modified.

Will a 80s box give lighter steering than a 60s box.


????? :?:
When in doubt..... UTE-ERIZE it!!!

Re: Stump Dumbdunce - The challenge is on

Ok I am officially stumped. it's taken over 10 years...

1989 60 series rear brakes when assembled rapidly self over adjust until dragging and get very hot. apart and back together several times. everything looks good, but the problem persists. Has had two complete sets of everything put through it. Drums are new. 2 sets of shoes and all springs and adjusters.


there will be a prize.

Re: Stump Dumbdunce - The challenge is on

Have you got the shoes on backwards, ie leading shoe on the front not the back?

Re: Stump Dumbdunce - The challenge is on

Find another brand of brake shoes that are manufactured locally and to the original spec out of a locally grown business.

and several thousand k's later thank Dumbdunce for his persistence with logical process and analysis. :armsup: :armsup: :armsup: :armsup:

Needs NEW springs plus chamfer the leading edges.

It had several sets of new springs which did not correct the issue. If you need to modify brake parts (eg chamfering leading edge as suggested) you're using the wrong parts. In this specific case, chamfering the leading edge of the linings would almost certainly make the problem worse. If you modify brake parts and use them on the road I sincerely hope you have tertiary engineering qualifications and plenty of insurance.

As it turns out, the after market shoes I was using were out of spec in a couple of ways. The lining outer diameter was about 6-8mm smaller than the new (in spec) drum diameter. The web of the shoes was also about .5mm thinner than factory. The combination of these factors meant that when the brakes were applied, the shoes would only contact the drum in the middle of the lining and the shoe would flex flatter as more brake was applied. This would cause the adjuster to ratchet and resulted in the brakes dragging after driving any kind of distance and repeated brake applications.

As a heavy vehicle technician, we radius match shoes to drums, but light vehicle stuff is generally manufactured to tighter tolerances, it's not usually necessary. Lesson learned, measure three times and with brakes, cut nonce.
