It says to unbolt the brake lines and then unbolt the axel flange and to pull either by hand or slap hammer out the axels. No internal clips. The backing plates come off with the axel, bearing and retainer.

The bearings, it says there are there and too hard to set up for the average motorhead. But I have mics, Digital calipers, a vise grip dial indicator, inch pound and foot pound torque wrenchs and so is too much to ask for specs and to buy a manual with any?

I have a 10 ton press, and slews of tools. I just am not intimatly familar with toy auto specs! Ahhhhhhhhh

Would you guys say 1/8th inch movement up and down , might be 1/10th inch up and down is more than enough play at the flange to say the bearing is dead? I do.

The bloomin book goes into detail on the pinion seal R&R, but says the bearings are too hard to do.... i don't buy that for a second, and need bloomin specs. Evidently I can't seem to find a book to buy with the info i want, which is just exact specs.

The book gives me a inch pound pre load spec and that's it!

What books do you guys use?

i wanted a Clymers for it's specs, and the detail, but Clymers doesn't appear to make a book for this truck.

I don't want a costly factory manual and or Mitchells.Mitchells is the best of the best, but this is a 94 truck.

WILSON!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can I get guys on that site with any friggin specs? I am off to hunt that site down right now.
Mac I never bother with those books, I go straight for the factory manuals.

I would suggest looking into AllData...

Faxon is one re-seller of factory manuals. I agree, the Chilton and Haynes assume a very limited level of shade-tree ability. A used factory manual is probably what you want.

I'm not certain you need any specific spec on pressing the bearings out and in though. You need to push hard enough to get them out and to seat the new ones, I think torquing the pinion nut will pull them into place if they are not already.

That said I have never worked on this particular axle so I may be dead wrong on that.

In theory that would work however this case being a trashed/loose pinion bearing it is likely the shims have been damaged. Even if that weren't so I would not trust the new bearing to be dimensionally exact compared to the one it is replacing.

Mac, get out the gear paint and some beers (not too many though)!

Got a decent on line manual here from the Pirate 4x4 site offering here
Toyota Tacoma/ 4Runner/ Tundra/ FJ Cruiser Factory Service Manual Page

Will check out the Automotive Repair, Auto Recalls, Automotive Software & TSB's - ALLDATA as well since the first manual is difficult to use since it appears to be missing the table of contents.

However it goes into a greater detail, all I need. Once i had my wife go thru every bloomin folder and make me a paper copy of a table of contents. I love that gal

later, she gets a greasey smear on her forehead

Now this good manual seems assume you know to pull the axels.

It has a trick Ild like to play where just the first pinion bearing and seal are replaced with the 3rd member still on the axel housing, but I think not.

The only way i can see a floating flange at the driveshaft is a dead bearing.

These ain't packed in a neoprean holder, that I would know of.

Yeah the typical pain, but ain't everything?

Off to see the new link Lux put up. Thanks Lux.

That Haines will be returned. I have a older haines with specs for my Volvo, and there are there. I have a chiltons for my chevy, but it's best used as 'TP'.

Hey Mac, you can get access to Mitchell On Demand for $10.49 per vehicle.

I've never tried using it this way but if it's the full knowledge base like what comes with a Mitchell subscription, then it can't be beat.

If you're working on a car for a customer, you can just pass the cost on to them.

Well this one I got and it is decent and free. A bit hard to get around maybe but once you do it's yours.

Toyota Tacoma/ 4Runner/ Tundra/ FJ Cruiser Factory Service Manual Page


If any of you guys plan to woth on the toys, grab it and book mark the site if nothing else.

The way i work these days is seldom on cars and trucks and I never know what i will get next. Could be a 1936 Plymouth Torpedo, or it might be a Dodge 1 ton dump.

I just know it ain't ever gonna be a FIAT, and if it is the .75 cal musket I have is the best tool for that.

Mac, isn't pirate 4x4 a great site? Someone there will have put up a step by step with photos of a Yota 4x4 axle. Guaranteed! Just ignore the bashers. That's half the fun of being there.

wish I could find an automatic Toyota truck... They are WAY overpriced.

I regret selling my Tundra a couple of years ago... I sold it way too cheap. Oh well.

You prefer a auto tranny and like in the Mt's of eastern Tn? Not me. If I lived there it would be all stick shifting fer me. I plow snow and then auto tranny works better since i don't have 3 arms.

Plowing gets busy in NH in a stick though, which can be hard on clutchs. I used to plow that way too. This new way with auto tranny, so far i burned up 4 trannys. I am re-considering going back to cookin off clutches. pain in the but, but cheaper than auto trannies which are almost the same pain in the butt to fix and changed.
