Saved 250 bucks

By not listening to my mechanic who told me I need a new alternator. Did some research on the net and found this.

Got the brush's from Toyota dealer for 22 bucks and 2 hours of my labor its done. Only thing that was hard is getting the alternator to drop down through a small space, 20 minutes and it dropped and lucky for me I got my face out of the way just on time. Fuck that was a bitch. Oh and it was just as hard pushing it back into place

1986 turbo 4 runner

Started her up and no more funny lights coming on so I can take it to the smog check now and get my test done..

OOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo a valve check, have fun with that duder, count on more than $250.

by the time I had left the dealership, I'd done a couple of them, depends alot on the customer, but I ended up doing an adjustment everytime I did a check, and it isn't cheap, or easy. Albeit that was more like an FZ1 motor than an R1 motor and it was in a sled, so you have to tear the whole subframe apart to get it, still tho, on average it was $1400 out the door. There was alot more disparity between the canadian and american dollar back then to tho, but still, $900 wouldn't be unreasonable.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

From reading the manual the R1 is not so bad to work on In regards to valve check, shims. My friend Tony is helping me do it so I can learn to do it myself. Not sure what dealers here charge but I don't trust them to do a good job. I'll pay my friend a 100$ note and I'll gain some experience. not a bad deal! Also doing SS brake lines and rebuild forks, new springs.

If my bike ever needs rebuilding I'll buy Graves Stroker kit at 4,000$. That would give my 02R1 180 at the wheel and that's with no turbo.

ya it's not super hard to do, just time consuming, there's alot of those little fuckers, you figure an hour to get it torn down, an hour to get it back together, and 30 mins/valve you're already into 12 hours. 30 mins/valve is excessive, but not hugely so, the first one will take you that long, by the last one you might be down to 15 mins.

you typically only need to adjust 2 or three....

so measure them all before hand, and then note what is in each.

you also need to figure on time to remove an then reinstall the cams as well.....

but a good 6 hours to 8 hours should do it.

the worst part is finding a place that actually has the shims and will swap or sell them....

most are dicks about it.
