One Problem after another
I was changing my lift bolts on my 2000 GTS then the stud on the valve cover wich connect it to the ventilator pipe broke. So then i was goin to dealership asking them if they had it in stock, of course they didn't. So i just went to Home Depot to get some screws to subsitute. Then i was gonna open the valve cover again, then a nut drops in wear the chain belt is.

changing the bolts was a breeze. but i suggest not to tighten the nuts ont the stud connecting to the ventilator pipe to tight cause it will break off. I use a torque wrench and set it for 17 pounds and it broke around 10 pounds. I ended up using the screws from the valve cover, which fit perfectly.

what torque did the Toyota service manual recommend? 17 ft-lbs?

how do your old lift bolts look life?


I get my kicks on EC.
