Have you tried starting fluid to be sure that the injectors are pulsing and this is not a fuel delivery issue?

Was there any corrosion or scoring inside the distributor when you had the cap off?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes I tried starting fluid, the cap was corroded so i replaced it, the rotor button was corroded so i replaced it, the ignition coil was cracked so i replaced it, the rest of distributor looks great. the timing belt was worn so i replaced it, it is timed correctly.

to save time and wonderment, i am stg certified in electronics, ase certified as master truck mechanic, and hold mechanics job in truck shop. not a toyota mechanic, and am looking for maybe something that toyota's may have been sensative to, or a trick that toyota's have that as a truck mechanic i might not know.

all the timing pully's were in good shape, all the plugs replaced and gapped correctly, thanks . tom

The thing that stands out in my mind here is still the distributor, these are common issues on these cars, especially if you have weak spark and a break down.....there are a few other parts inside this distributor, do you by chance have access to another one you can swap out?

WILL LOOK AND RETURN WORD TO YOU TOMORROW.
