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...

Thanks for the speedy reply, Peter. Gonna wait for the Ins. adjuster's report (he's supposed to contact me later today.) I'll keep you posted. As for picking the hood up- don't think that's gonna happen- I'm in Baltimore, MD.

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

Well people, it's happened again (see my previous post from 4 1/2 years ago- I'd post the link but can't- too stupid.) Anyway, last night I was traveling down a dark 50 mph road minding my own business headed to the Marina to check on the boat when all of a sudden a deer darted in front of me and ne...
