My 1985 4Runner just broke it's timing chain and the repair shop says it's not worth fixing. And since I have no diy skills or tools.... The tires, body,and interior are good and it has a full tank of gas. Anybody have any interest in the vehicle? I'd hate to send it to the junk yard if someone else could use it.

Thanks,
Julie

Jesse at ATLR has 22re's that are brand new. He can install, or will sell outright. It might be worth a look. I had one put in my son's 4runner a while back - runs great!

This guy does great work. It's still worth fixing :thumb:

I am very interested! Any idea on price? Do you have any photos of the body? Do you know how many miles are on the vehicle?

Please, don't let the junkyard have it! Someone will give you much more then they will. And it will be loved, not crushed.

The body is beautiful minus a couple spots on the driver side rear fender.

Dude, we're like twins! Both '85's, I even got the same bug shield with mine.
