Toyota Hydraulic Clutch Assembly Maintenance

Remove the lower portion of the dash (four 10MM bolts on a third generation 4Runner) and the associated wiring plugs, cables, etc. Take care to list or photograph the assemblies in the assembled condition if you feel that you can't keep track of "what goes where." Removing the panel is necessary unless you have the hands of a three year old and the arms of Manute Bol.

Remove the cotter pin holding the cross pin through the clutch pedal and push the cross pin through the pedal assembly. You may need to depress the pedal slightly to release the tension off of the cross pin. Retain the cotter pin and the cross pin, these will be re-used in the replacement process.

PACE EDWARDS RETRACTABLE TRUCK BED COVERS REDUCE DRAG, IMPROVE FUEL ECONOMY

For years, Pace Edwards customers have reported fuel economy gains—now independent studies prove it. Based on a study performed at Western New England College School of Engineering, the installation of a hard tonneau cover results in an 11.81% decrease in drag when compared to the same truck without a cover. The same study revealed that a truck cap (or canopy) actually increases drag to 11.11%. A study conducted by SEMA netted the same conclusion—a reduction in drag of almost 12%, and a significant fuel savings. With a Pace Edwards Roll-Top, JackRabbit, Full Metal JackRabbit or BedLocker cover in place, enthusiasts can not only enjoy better protection and improved appearance, but enhanced fuel economy as well.

The new Arachnid M1 features a removable BrakeBolt™ locking pin and ABLOY® EXEC lock mechanism. The system is integrated into a powerful Beringer Aerotec® 4-piston, radial-mount brake caliper; the Arachnid M1 is compatible with any motorcycle using 108mm radial-mount front brake calipers. RoadLoK Security's "universal-fit" approach marks a company-first: this is a new locking system vaunting coverage for all Japanese sport bikes outfitted with 108mm radial calipers produced back to the 2003 model year! The new M1 is even compatible with several European motorbikes using the same popular radial-mount offset.

The new Arachnid M1 system is currently available through RoadLoK Security and Beringer. The M1 is available in a wide range of anodized colors including black, blue, gold, silver, purple, titanium and eye-catching red.
