The 340 is the trans that preceded the one used in the LS400s. I actually have an A340e that came out of an sc400. The big difference is the 340 uses a mechanical kick down rod for the passing gear and the 341 changed to a cable operated kick down.

I think the electronics might also be a little different, but not 100% on that. The aforementioned 4runner has an A340F transmission in it and it uses a cable, as does the A541E in my '99 camry. Those are pretty big transmissions for the size of vehicle they are in. They were also used in several other vehicles, including old RWD volvos and XJ cherokees.

Since the Seattle Seahawks are on their bye week, I will wash and wax the truck and tighten up the belts on Sunday. The other games I can get on AM radio via Westwood One.

If you are out camping, string a 50 foot wire to your antenna and toss it over a high tree. There you go.

Flying off to San Diego for Thanksgiving next week. If I don't post much, that's why, but I will try. Always looking to help folks with their rigs, although most of my advice comes from the previous century, aka Old School.

Default Junkyard trip

Local junkyard, trip found fair bed for 2wd, standard cab bed 75 inch. Found 93 good seats, no rips. Found pretty clean kingcab bed 76 inches. the 93 kingcab has a clean passenger inner door panel, but some dickhead rattlecanned the driver side inner door panel. Snagged the hazard switch for red28. Grabbed fusibles located at battery terminals. Pulled horn switch and relay. If iI had a bigger shed, I would strip this baby down while still fresh in the yard. This yard is between Tampa and Orlando, pm me for yard info, the head yard dogs says they ship beds all the time.[IMG][/IMG]

The electronics are expensive. Oem shift solenoids are several hundred dollars. A used 341 sells for 500 to 850 bucks. A complete rebuild can exceed 2500. That reason alone is why her LS has a used 80k mile trans.

Hell ya. Always strip out the small parts. Relays alone are twenty bucks a pop on the internet. I have bags full of small stuff.

In the old days, wrecking yards would keep rigs out there for years. Now it's a lot less and then they go off to the metal recyclers. Damn it. Get that stuff when you can, EVERY TIME you can. Cause it ain't hanging around long.

So true. Missed out on a COMPLETE z24i engine by a couple of days recently by procrastinating.

Grab stuff nobody thinks of - like the little circular rubber plugs in floorpan. Discontinued and they get crunchy over time.

Can I expect the ECM from this 93 automatic to work in my 5spd 93? Anything else I should snag? How about the electronics below the air cleaner? Are these any good used? I opened the A/C switch to get the bulb(s) out, funny but I think one was a spare? The top steering column cover is gone, the bottom IS there.

Default Splash guards

I cut a "diamond plate"carpet runner I found at Lowes to replace the torn, brittle splash guards found between the front wheel wells and the engine compartment
