Subject: [Toy4x4] .Bouncing-Betty's 3.0L V-6 Toyota engine is running!

Thank you, To all of the Toyota "collective" that provided me with tips. :-) To a mechanic one of the best sounds is that of the engine running! - Tonight, (Friday November 22, 2002), at 6:22 pm CST the 3.0L Toyota V-6 engine in Bouncing-Betty came to life! Woo Hoo! :^) It was one of the best sounds I've heard in a while. ;-)

There still remains the integrating of the steering column electrical systems, (Ignition switch, turn signals, lights, wiper controls, 4-way flasher, etc.), but the Engine is running and warmed up close to normal operating temperature. We shut her down after about 30 minutes, checked the coolant, added more coolant, and ran her for about another 15 minutes. This has been a major accomplishment. The recipient of the 3.0L Toyota V-6 engine and many other related systems is a 1984 Toyota 4Runner!

I must give credit to Heavenly Father too. After all of the work to the fuel and electrical system last night she still didn't want to start. I had checked everything that was engine related, but still no start. This afternoon, I knelt down and offered up a prayer, asking for divine intervention to prompt me what to try next. After about 20 minutes I felt prompted to disconnect, clean, and reconnect several of the connectors and perform a few more voltage checks with my VOM. The readings were normal and as I turned the Ignition switch it happened. She Fired up! Betty's transplanted engine came to life. I still have the entire interior, dash, sub-dash, and related electrical connections to complete, but She starts and her engine runs! :-)

Oh yes,
(and I did it all without any Liquid Nails and kept the stock Thermostat!)
Happy Trails,

Hi Folks,
my news...

...Bouncing-Betty, (my 1984 Toyota 3.0L equipped 4Runner), is on the road again!!! :-)

Yep! It's true. Monday June 16, in the late afternoon I drove Bouncing-Betty out of the garage for the first time under her own power! This was such an Adrenaline Rush! ;-)
Then Tuesday got the insurance for her and began driving her on the roads, highways, and interstate. Get this, Believe it or not She gets 18.2 MPG City! :^)

The task now remains for me to integrate the rear window, rear wiper, and rear washer fluid pump into the 1991 Toyota V-6 wiring harness. So far she drives out real nice. I plan to replace the rear stock 4Runner springs and 2 inch lift blocks with 5.5 inch Superlift springs. There are also 3.5 inch lift springs waiting to be installed in place of the stock 1984 Toyota front springs.
Any comments, tips, or suggestions welcome.
Happy Trails,

~ Dee
