Hi all - Welcome back for the second time this month!

I apologize for the inconvenience of the site being offline. The site was down for technical reasons, but it didn't help that I was of offline for two weeks (camping and travel). Once I got back, it took a while to get things sorted out. That's resolved, and the site is now back up. Huzzah!

Please take a minute and read the Site News thread I've posted in the General section, and feel free to comment. Thanks!

Hi, New to this forum.  I'm installing a 1986 used 22RTE into a 1985 4runner.  A couple of years ago I installed a new 3 row radiator that has a couple of extra hose nipples at the bottom (which are capped).  Can I hook up the turbo water hose (which should go into the top of the radiator) into one of those ports at the bottom of the radiator with a longer hose, or do I need to purchase a 22RTE radiator?  Please advise.

just take the radiator to a shop and have a nipple soldered into the top tank. have it installed on the right side of the tank (if you are standing in front of the engine). the nipples on the bottom tank are for the tranny cooler(auto trans) which doesnt tie into the coolant part of the radiator. you would want to return to the top of the radiator anyhow.

Another option is to fab a 1 1/4" to 3/8" "T" and install this into the upper radiator hose for the turbo water to return to.  I just switched to an aluminum radiator that dosn't have the turbo nipple, and that is what I did.  It seems to be working fine so far.

That's a good idea.  Easier to fabricate a T than dealing with the radiator.

I also didn't void the warranty on my new radiator by drilling and welding on it:)

Sounds like a plan.  Thank you very much.  I'm still waiting for a spare minute to do more work on the truck (kids are finishing school)

Now why couldn't I find that when I was looking for it:)  Mine only took me about 30 minutes to fabricate, but that one looks nicer...

I notice you have your vacuum hoses plugged on the throttle body.  Did you remove the EGR?  How does it run?

Here's a photo of mine installed.  The part fits nicely in the hose, however, it has two ports.  It has a 3/8" barb for the turbo cooling line.  I guess this will work.
