    Looking good. Hard to tell what that is. Looks like you got it cleaned up though.

    I’m sure there is a way. The way I see our design on our PCV the gookies will trap up in the Valve Cover where it meets the PCV and leak back down into the little ported area. I’ve been watching a little engine sludge booger grow down in that portion since doing my VC Gaskets.

    Remember my VC Gaskets were bad and my PCV was clogged for a few years. Yeah I didn’t pay mind to it with other stuff on my plate. Anyhow, that bad PCV caused a back up a sludgies in the ported area. Which I really had to use quite a bit of Brake Cleaner to remove. I don’t see how a catch can will prevent this action as it will be on the down stream side of things and gravity is already working inside that port not allowing the gookies to flow up.

    Now that I’m Felix Unger I hunt stuff down. I have my eye on this booger thats double in size in a year. I might blast it with some PB down the chute and wash it away. Let me see if I can find a pic.

    I wanna say the piece you quoted is the the rounded bumper filler? The one you and I talked about yesterday. How mine had surface rust?

    I'm cleaning all this up so I can do one good clean video of removal, and reinstall.

    It's a closed loop system so no you can't just dump it. When I was installing the injectors I had taken the throttle body off and cleaned it up and cleaned up inside the manifold best I could without taking it off. The pcv inlet is right at the opening and it's greasy, oily mess. I'll see what the catch can does at the next oil change interval

    @Professional Hand Model

    Just finished reading the article you posted earlier. Was reading between paint cycles. Now I have a better understanding of how the whole PCV system works.

    THANKS!:fistbump:

    side jobs pay me much more.. its rare for me to do t-belts in a week.. let alone a day. tundra t-belt is like a 5 hr job for me... the old 3.3 and 3.0? done so many of them it only takes me like 2-3 hours to do them...

    I pray that the oil pan on my truck never starts leaking because from what I can see, it would be a 50 hour job for me. Have you ever done one on a 1st gen Tundra?

    What is the tundra TBelt quoted out for in terms of hours?
    Is it mainly friends and referrals that you do side jobs for?
    I have one old McDonald’s connect that feeds me work here and there, I charge what I want because I don’t think I’ve had one call back with him, other than when I said it was junk but I’d try, and he gets bent over from the local jabronies. Other than that it’s mainly my close family, that I don’t really charge, but I still say no to some of them even. I’ve got kids now so I’d rather be goofy with them than have to work on someone’s AC or fridge, I try to help when I can, but Sometimes I have to say no!

    my side work is pretty much a few familys that trust me.. not a whole lot.. but theyre big familes and keep me busy.

    t-belt with water pump on a 4.7 is an 8hr job according to the books.

    Management Dept (wifey) & I are trying to decide whether to keep her Lexus is350C or sell it before I start dumping $$ into it. Right now we are looking at the 4runner V8 or the FJ Cruiser. What issues between the two?
    We want a 4X4

    A 4runner has always struck me as a more practical vehicle than the FJ. FJ always struck me as a mall crawler vehicle even from the factory.

    I have no experience with either. :anonymous:Bear that in mind.

    The FJ is a serious off road vehicle, very capable.

    I like the 05ish 4runner V8 but I hear that rust is an issue. The FJ she likes but I really like V8's

    the FJ has the same rust issues. its just a shorter 4runner. both are solid vehicles. the v8 is obviously amazing. but the 4.0 is also a great engine

    I'm keeping my truck and I really want a Landcruiser/LX470 but she is uncomfortable with the size. That leaves me with 4runner and FJ. I have to measure the interior of the fj and see if I can fit a blow up mattress

    I’ve never driven one, but I bet a v8 4runner is a rocket ship!
    I’ve had no big issues with out 5th gen w the 4.0, it’s no v8 but if you make it bark, it moves
