22re head removal

What are the steps to removing the head on a 22re? My timing chain went and I have to remove the head to see if I bent any valves.

Go buy you a hanyes manual. It will give you all the details you need. When I did mine. I kept the intake on because it was easier that way. Just try to remember where all the bolts came from..

Yes, I agree, the Haynes manual is a good investment. There are too many steps to list on here. The Haynes will guide you through step by step. Its pretty simple though, unbolt your exhaust, valve cover, head bolts, cam bolt, and your pretty much there. If you've never done it before then definately get the manual. good luck

In North America the 22R & 22R-E s are used in the following:

1981-82 Toyota Corona
1981-83 Celica
1981-87 Toyota pickup (up to 1990 on 2wd)
1984-87 Toyota 4-Runner

22R-E (22REC=California emissions=extra charcoal canister)
1983-85 Celica
1985-95 Toyota pickup
1985-95 Toyota 4-Runner

22RTE (Turbo EFI)
1985-87 Toyota 4-Runner
1985-87 Toyota pickup

Finally these sites explain the timing chain replacement well:


Any Public Library in your area would have the Factory service manual, Haynes,Chiltons,Mitchells,Clymers, Bentley and Toyota repair books.

Free AutoZone service manuals at:


Tons of free factory service manuals for 4-Runners,etc:


Free 1985 Toyota 4-Runner & pickup Factory Service Manual:


Free 1993 Toyota Pickup Service Manual:

Free 1989 - 1995 Pickup Mitchell Service Manual:
You can download the winrar archiver from: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
And The ISO file can be downloaded from:
http://www.filecrunch.com/file/~ga05yg <--- Part 1
http://www.filecrunch.com/file/~tlgobs <--- Part deux
The two rar files are 90 Megabytes in size, but once unrared it is a 300 Megabyte ISO image.BTW: File will be removed automatically if there is no download for 30 days.

FSM (factory service manual) can be acquired in several ways:

Toyota Material Distribution Center
750 West Victoria St
Rancho Dominguez/Compton, CA 90220-5538
Ph:1-800-622-2033 (outside CA)(M-F: 7-5 PST)
Ph:1-800-443-7656 (inside CA)
Ph:1-310-818-4630 (in or outside CA)
Speak to Beverly or Deloris

1)buy a used one off e-bay
2)some Toyota dealerships may give you one or sell it for $10-20 (used) as most Toyota dealerships don't repair many old Toyotas and no longer need the service manual
3)some public libraries sell their old books as they are not in demand any longer
4)some free buy & sell classified papers, websites and bulletin boards may have some used ones for sale
5)some junk yards may have one laying around
6)some Toyota specialty garages may have one laying around and no longer use it as the vehicle may be too old and those mechanics probably have so much experience that they could publish their own factory service manual with corrections and "real world repair tips"
7)if someone has the FSM maybe they could scan all of the pages and post it on a site for all of us to download or view.

Look at the "timing chain" sticky thread at the top of the '89-'95 truck section. It's a very detailed how-to with pics.
