That's just the maximum temperature the PSF itself can handle. Not sure if that was flash point or fire point of the fluid.Fun Fact PS fluid runs around 110-130 deg. and gets up to 170 . Also Polypropylene ( you know that thing that Toyota made that holds the Fluid ) melts at 320 deg . Were 700* is coming from is kinda funny
flash is around 340
I go the answer to what my PSF fluid is made of... Ready? It's a combo of phosphate ester and ploy alpha olefin with some zinc dithiophosphate along with anti-ware and anti-foam additives good up to a max temp. of 700F.
Funny you mention that, I've often said it was GM too. In fact, GM made the components for the 1st Toyota A/T components back in the day, hence the Dex affilitation. The bad news nowadays=AISIN makes a superior product to GM in transmissions and GM has contracted and been using them now for some years...and guess what? A lot of them still recommend DEXIII or DEX VI now. A lot of people also think the auto manufacturer makes the fluid too so they stick with it. Nope. Major petroleum companies such as Mobil, Valvoline, LiquiMoly, and others make the fluids that go into them, and all auto manufacturers only produce about 50-80% of what drives off the showroom floor. The rest is made by vendors and then assembled by the auto makers in their factories. But you knew all that.Fun fact. Toyota's original Dex-II (in 1973) was actually licensed rebrand of GM Dex-II(C) so I blame GM for all my problems where this started 🤭
I didn't! but thanks for thinking that I know more than I actually do.you knew all that.
I need to do that too. The new straps are still in cellophane in my office collecting dust probably. Maybe I'll do that next week.I didn't! but thanks for thinking that I know more than I actually do.
Back on topic, fixed my limit straps yesterday. I had to space it out enough so it doesn't bind on compression. Not ideal but I've been hearing horror stories about clevis mounts failing so eventually I'll change to fixed brackets instead. Also, proper shank cut bolts.

That's awesome! Have you designed compartments for the glove box?
