you can pull the boat no problem. as putting in a 6.2 for the 454 you will need to change wire harness inside and out..im the brake booster...... the gear ratio in the rear ends ..fuel pump ..im guessing you have a truck you will be using for parts.. if you are doing for fuel mileage you will be disappointed you will only gain a couple of mpg .. hopes this helps

SOURCE: Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon

1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

Regards, Andy

Not trying to sound like dodging the question but, If it's not written in your owners manual, your best bet is to call local toyota dealer & ask to be sure. Wouldn't want to guess on that & end up blowing your transmission or engine.

Hey Bryan

I've got them for Six and Four wire plugs

Six wire plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

What is the tow capacity of a 2007 Ford BF Falcon?


check with the makers specifications ( may be on a sticker on the door edge /pillar) or service dealer. Generally the boat would be too heavy for the vehicle as it will cause loss of control and steer the car. Generally the regulation was if the vehicle being towed was heavier than the towing vehicle then it was illegal to tow but with improved braking systems on trailers, increases in engine power there have been some amendments made to the rule. Remember that the transmission and diff is not designed to pullr this weight so the service life will be considerably reduced.

How to fix my tow connector on my lx470


On American SUV's, the Manufacturer includes a packet containing the extra flashers and harness "Pigs" to connect the rear of the SUV to the front power boxes.

You may be able to find this packet in the box or jacket that comes with your Jack. It is like they should label "some assembly required" on all Vehicles with Towing capabilities. Vehicles do not come with the Towing ****** or the trailer Ball either.

Since some trailers have Electric braking systems, most Manufacturers have left off the connections and provide the Owners with the packet containing underdash fittings and Extra heavy duty Flashers and turn signals.

If you look and have a cover on the Tow socket, the flap will have symbols for the function of the various terminals on the plug. Use a Voltmeter to test the output of each terminal when the turn signals or brakes are on. Depending on the number of terminals in the socket, there may be a power terminal used to recharge a boats' battery or a campers' battery

Trailer blinking lights are not working on my boat trailer, is there a separate fuse for the trailer light hook up? I drive a 98 Grand Caravan


If it's wired properly, one thing that does come to mind is to replace standard signal flasher with a HD flasher. (heavy Duty)

I've got an 05 model with the 3.3 and given what I know I wouldn't pull anything over 2k lbs a small utility trailer with a riding mower or a small 14-16 ft boat or wave runner would be the extent of it without having a heavy duty transmission, a seperate trans fluid cooler, and an elec braking device

We have a 2003 f250 super duty. We have no power


Check fuse #6 20amp on your interior fuse panel it may be blown. The relays are located in an auxillary relay box located under the hood on the drivers side fender near the firewall. The system uses 2 relays. One relay turns on for left turn signal, other relay turns on for right signal. Both relays turn on for brake lamps. The fuse #6 is more likely the problem. If the fuse is blown, replace it, wiggle the wiring on the trailer while someone steps on brakes to check for shorts.
