That sure sounds like a serious car repair question.
I can only assume you ran over it and need to get the tire replaced.

How difficult is it to replace valves in a 85 Toyota Pickup?

It can be done, but it is classified under the engine overhaul reconditioning, which can be time consuming and expensive for an engine machinist to do. To do it yourself is not usually recommended.--- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION A valve spring compressor is needed to remove the valves and springs; these are available at most auto parts and auto tool shops. A small magnet is very helpful for removing the keepers and spring seats. Set the head on its side on the bench. Install the spring compressor so that the fixed side of the tool is flat against the valve head in the combustion chamber, and the screw side is against the retainer. Slowly turn the screw in towards the head, compressing the spring. As the spring compresses, the keepers will be revealed; pick them off of the valve stem with the magnet as they are easily fumbled and lost. When the keepers are removed, back the screw out and remove the retainers and springs. Remove the compressor and pull the valves out of the head from the other side. Remove the valve seals by hand and remove the spring seats with the magnet. Fig. 1: After compressing the valve spring, be careful removing the keepers--they are easily fumbled 85783113.gif
Fig. 2: Always install new valve stem seals 85783114.gif
Fig. 3: Lightly tap each assembled valve stem to ensure correct fit of the keepers, retainer and seals 85783115.gif

Fig. 8: Installing the valve seal 85783277.jpg
Since it is very important that each valve and its spring, retainer, spring seat and keepers is reassembled in its original location, you must keep these parts in order. The best way to do this to cut either eight (four cylinder) or twelve (six cylinder) holes in a piece of heavy cardboard or wood. Label each hole with the cylinder number and either IN EXp>After lapping each valve into its seat (see Valve Lapping below), oil each valve stem, and install each valve into the head in the reverse order of removal, so that all parts except the keepers are assembled on the stem. Always use new valve stem seals. Install the spring compressor, and compress the retainer and spring until the keeper groove on the valve stem is fully revealed. Coat the groove with a wipe of grease (to hold the keepers until the retainer is released) and install both keepers, wide end up. Slowly back the screw of the compressor out until the spring retainer covers the keepers. Remove the tool. Lightly tap the end of each valve stem with a rubber hammer to ensure proper fit of the retainers and keepers. prev.gif next.gif

Third door 2002 s10 will not open replaced broken handle top latch will release but not bottom latch

The handle you replaced is a dual action. It should have two linkage arms. 1 coming down from the top & one coming up from the bottom. Sometimes the little plastic keepers that the rods snap into that hold them on to the handle become worn out. Hopefully replace the lower keeper. They may look ok, but it is a very small tolerance.

Do know how to put drum brakes on

First you will need a brake spring wrench. This is like a 14" plier looking tool which will uninstall springs on one end of the tool and install springs using the other end. Remove the brake shoes and mount the new shoes one wheel at a time. You will use the other wheel as a reference when putting the new shoes in place. You may have a shoe retainer assembly holding each shoe to the backer plate. A normal pair of pliers will let you depress the spring and turn the spring keeper L or R to remove the keeper. Put your finger on the center pin from the back side of the backer plate so that it doesn't turn when you turn the keeper.
