Could the pipe be on backwards? I looked at mine and the long straight comes from the radiator.

Re: Photo of 1931 4-Door With Blackwall Tires

I would go with blackwalls if using tacoma cream,yellow or straw. For some reason,to me, those colors seem to go best.

Re: overdrive

I am not sure I like the placement of the shifter 5/6 inches further back and the emergency brake moved further to the right takes up some leg room for passenger. Also no torque tube on mine.

Re: Water Temperature Gauge

I have found a lot of gauges do not read correctly. Check the gauge with a pan of hot water and a digital temp or regular gauge that you use for cooking. You may find a difference.
