I was lucky enough to find and buy a 97 T100, 2WD, 6cyl, auto with 140K miles in SLC around 5 weeks ago. A really good pickup. Wide open engine compartment makes for easy peazy repair and maintenance. This was a SoCal one owner truck with almost no rust and no tow hitch, so I know the 3.4 liter engine and brakes have not been under any undue load. I have flushed the coolant system and changed the oil and filter. Next up will be new timing belt, pulley tensioner and tensioner adjuster. Also installed LED headlights and used some polishing compound to remove years of yellowing or clouding from the headlight lenses. Picked up a gas filter, just waiting for a warmer day to replace it. Waiting on a stereo upgrade (it came with a cassette player) and an ODB scanner. I also learned that if you have a stack of at least 75 new $100 bills you can feel 3 bumps on the stacked bills. 2 bumps at the top and bottom right on the blue strip and and a third bump around 1/8 of an inch below the top bump. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Any tips for the T100 is appreciated.
