22r wont fire up
Posted 06 March 2007 - 06:06 PM
so, we got a 22r swapped into my buds 84 toy truck. i have fuel and spark, but it wont fire, or even pretend to. it goes rr,rr,rr,rr, poof. Poof being what seems to be a white cloud of fuel blowing out the carb. very consistent. four cranks then poof. I am not good at diagnosis, and i really want this truck to run so it'll get the FLOCK out of the way of my garage. so, any suggestions?

BUT, I suspect your problem is similar to my initial problems with my EJ22 swap (just for different reasons).
I was getting spark....just not at the right time. like stngllhm said, check and double check your spark plug wires, and be sure you've got the disty set right.

#1- rotor is off 180º
#2- Firing order is backwards
My money is on the second one.

Like the others said, though, check the firing order first. All of the distributor caps that I ever used for my 20R had numbers on them so you can't go wrong on the order.

ive just TDC' ed the #1 cylinder again, disty is in pointing at #1 on the cap, firing order is checked (1342), plug wires are in their proper places, and its still blasting fuel/air mix out the carb intermitently when i turn it over.
background - we swapped a 2wd engine into this 4wd truck a long time ago, and it hasnt run since. ( i stopped caring when we pushed it to the side of the garage - i didnt feel like doing the work on someone elses truck... but now theres money involved )
i noticed that there was qite a bit of lag between my turning the crankshaft, and the rotor starting to move.
any toyota masters out there?

That and the timing chain may have slipped... check that as well.

Yup. That's your problem.
Sorry, it was just too easy.

And the 'penetrating the cement skull' award goes to.... SECREWBARU! I AM A REETARD! How many times have i been told that? i am ashamed to think about it. I must just have blind luck with the sube disty because i've NEVER done that with it before, and i've had it in and out prolly 15 times when i did my spfi swap.
lesson learned i guess. Its sad to think that i'm the smart one about cars around here
At least i've got a toyota fsm now... thanks for the link 'junkie .

You had a 50/50 chance of geting it right, you would have gotten it eventually.

Contrats to screwbaru for penatrating the thick skull!

and like i said, i wasnt super motivated to figure it out because it wasnt my vehicle. Unfortunately, my friend didnt put any oil in the case and it sat the whole year like that. After fixing a hole in the rad, i put oil in it (not in the rad :-p ), started it and warmed it up to burp the rad, set idle, set timing, etc. Well, i'm guessing the front main seal dried out, because it started leaking oil from behind the crank pulley really bad, so now I'll have to get in there and see whats happening. I hope there arent any other lingering side effects from sitting with no oil for so long.

If you take the front end apart to replace the front seal at the oil pump, DON'T overtighten that large bolt in the center of the water pump. It snaps easily (not that I know from experience or anything ). There is also one bolt down through the front of the head into the timing cover. I always forgot about that one when tearing into the thing.
