There are some "O" rings in there, behind the plate and on the inner plate that holds the impellers of the pump.

I had the same problem. Not sure if Toyota makes a rebuild kit fer that pump or not. I just used some sealer and after a can of the straight stuff, it sealed right up. I think I got it from Walmart fer about $5. This is not the steering fluid mixed with sealer... ;)

Thanks for info and i use this truck as primary hunting rig so i think i will just do the remanufactured pump to have peace of mind when in Colorado out in the middle of no where lost i will not be broken down!! gotta do timing belt,water pump and all associated seals and junk and will let dealer do it all since i get a small break on parts!! until then it will still leak good and actually it has increased !! might have to get stop leak just to get to repair date!!

Yes, Toyota makes a rebuild kit. But.. with that many miles you are better off as you said and replace it with a reman pump. :tu:

The rear in an 07 Tundra is stationary and not adjustable.
The alignment machine uses the centerline of the rear axle to measure and calculate the front end alignment which IS adjustable to compensate for any irregularities in the rear.

That pump can be fun if you install the innerards incorrectly or the pressure valve sticks, LOL :D ;)

REMAN :tu: :D

GOOD LUCK

i have no issues with tearing that down cause one mistake would foul up the whole repair, and i would just as soon go with reman instead of taking a chance on doing a rebuil/reseal! Thanks for the info on the Alignment!!

1300.00 and that's with a 25% off on parts and a 10 % off on labor!! could have been worse, but i get a discount at my dealership for being a IH8MUD.com forum member! 25% on parts is n't too shabby and will be getting estimate on clutch kit soon!!:tu:

Thanks for info on alignment and i miss typed it anyway my DC is an 06 but they did a good job on alignment, but did the nascar lugnut method on wheels!! i checked their torque and it was more than my 1/2" drive 150 Ft Lb Torque wrench would measure!!

I would definatley retorque those lugs to spec 78-82 or so., THATS HOW ROTORS GET WARPED TOO.
The 07 TUNDRA calls for 145lbs for steel wheels, not a 06 :eek:

My face was purple as i retorqued my Alloys to 85 Ft Lb and seems if ya want something done rite ya just about gotta do it yourself!! Air Force taught us never use an air gun for removal or replacement due to stripping heads on removal and we had NO air ratchetes with torque measuring capability so it was all manual torque going on and this was followed pretty closely by all senior maintainers!! :tu: Nice Mods going on and great PICS!! How do those Geos do on the highway?:tu:

Thanks for the :tu: (I amssume your talking to me? OR WAS IT SOMEONE ELSE?)
The GEO's purrr a bit on the hwy but nothing to loud, you dont get a headache after a few hrs driving, they ride smooth and should last me approx 35k miles. They also are excellent in the dirt/mud/snow and slush. I have had them on my OLE Ford and now will never run anything else.They are a pleasure to balance.
Although people are trying to get me to switch to the TOYO MT, which is another great tire. The only diff is the sidewall is alot stiffer, which I might investigate for towing purposes, but they are $75 more per tire.

Yepper i was talking at ya!! thanks for info and i bet you can find plenty of action for that beast where you live!! will it tear the desert up? Those Geos are a nice tire as i was looking for some for my 93 $X$ and the Goodyear MTR's are a tad towards the mud side vs sand side for ABQ but they look nicer than the MTR's!! 35 K is not bad and balance is an issue i was concerned with the Goodyears!! tire shops say not much good in trying but they do what they can do??:ts:

She does good in the desert especially at speed :devil: . Not much of a rock climber as I am only a 2wd. When i bought the truck no one was into the off road scene. So I didnt think we needed it:rolleyes: . Its ok tho , I know her limitations, she is more of a SHOW & TOW, but will stay up with just about any American Truck even with the heavy 35's and RCD. I am working on a new engine 500HP, but that is going to take alot of $$$$ and time, neither of which i have right now :cry: . But time will tell :D ( The mustang comes first)(see my gallery for new engine video):devil: :D
I have had BFG's (YUCK) M/t's/All terrain/ and a Baja. They all suck as far as balance, they are a good generic off road tire and lasted me 44K miles, but I could never balance them, so long trips really sucked.

You should post some pics of your vehicles. The older 4x4's rock.:tu:
We had a 1992 Camry along time ago, sorry I got rid of it.

My 92 Camry started leaking something?? PS and oil both little low so i filled them up and wiped crap down. Think its going to carwash for engine cleaner with axle jack and jackstand for a bath!! did you ever have problems with your wheels clunking when ya hit the gas and not even hitting it hard? scared gearbox has issues, all CV boots are cracked but no leaks yet!!:confused: All my Toys are plane jane stockers, i had all the 4x4 action i wanted when i was a kid in Arkansas 1971 CJ5 Buick V6 Rebuilt motor and about 9 tranfer cases and 3 rear ends but man was it a blast!! It would lift tires 2" when ya could keep a tranny in it!! I put a Jeep Truck Tranny in it and it was much more reliable!!
