Since it's been de-smogged you don't need the air pump. They are notorious for freezing up as your's has.

The old AC compressor could have been installed to be used as an on board air pump system.

The ticking noise could be that your valves are out of adjustment, do that first. If it's still there afterwards then you may have a leaking exhaust manifold gasket. If you pull the manifold off to replace the gasket, check the manifold over carefully as the are known to crack and leak.

How difficult is adjusting the valves? I know that adjusting valves on my 4runner's 3.0 is a pretty involved process with shims, etc. I have the Haynes but it doesn't look like it says much about adjusting clearances.

Is there any special tools needed?

thanks!!

EDIT: Just found this:

Do I just need a feeler gauge?

I am looking at service manuals. I have the haynes but its not very in depth with its procedures.

Is this the one that most of you have?

Get the Toyota Factory Service manual for the 2F. In addition, you're going to need to get the correct year 2F emissions manual, which will help you figure out all the vacuum connections.

Looking at your pics, it looks like the engine has been partially desmogged, which will certainly cause all sorts of running issues. You're going to need to get it set up properly if you hope to get it to pass emissions. Does that smog pump still spin freely?

No, the pump (the one missing the belt) doesn't turn by hand. As far as I know everything else is there...lol

Ill be tinkering with it for a few hours on this Monday 3/22 if anybody in the neighborhood is free (I can have food/drinks, etc)

Lots to do, thinking of:
Checking/adjusting the valves
finding a possible exhausts leak
Adjusting the carb
Figuring out why it doesn't start sometimes


Does anyone have the 2F engine manual I could borrow while mine gets here?
