Re: Want To Buy: Vacuum Switchs

They def. are different (at least on the Fed emissions- I see you have the Calif. emissions.) One has a green electrical plug, the other a black one. Which do you need? I've got 'em both.

Re: 1987 FWD Auto Tercel Wagon

Rear suspension's completely different 4WD vs FWD. Rear brakes too.

Re: Camry all-trac

Back when those cars were new, I was doing Dealer Exchanges for a local Toyota dealer. Got to drive an AllTrack Camry wagon with a 4cyl manual transmission- REAL nice car. Think it had a sticker price of $13k and change. Also drove a Camry 4S with a v/6 and manual trans. Talk about a sleeper- that t...

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

Congrats to the missus- not many would put up with that. Are valve springs supporting the table top?

Re: 4a head swap

Is the spring-loaded pivot for the arm free? I've had a bunch of 'em rust up and become stiff over the years. Sprayed some PB Blaster on the pivot, worked it back and forth by hand 'till it freed up, and all's well. As for the 4a head, I think the combustion chamber volume might be a little greater ...

Re: Inquiry from the blue: "Want to sell your Tercel?"

Never followed anybody home- none of my "driveway finds" had valid tags when I spotted them.

Re: Inquiry from the blue: "Want to sell your Tercel?"

Knocking on doors (or leaving notes on windshields) is exactly how I managed to buy 4 of my current 5 Tercels. I call 'em driveway finds.

Re: A day (night) that shall live in INFAMY! (part 2)

Actually, my loss was covered under my comprehensive ins. Covers theft, glass breakage, vandalism, etc. Think I pay something like $40 per year per car- well worth the money IMO. Don't have collision on anything- don't mind paying for my mistakes, but hate paying for other peoples'. From what I unde...

Re: A day (night) that shall live in INFAMY! (part 2)

Thanks for your generous replies guys. Think I'll just cannabilize my previously-totaled '88 SR5. Hood's white with a little bit of rust, but it'll have to do for now. Gonna use the core support and condenser too. Only problem is the reflectors inside the headlights are a dull gray instead of silver...
