Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

Bryan- I've got the EXACT same car as your project ('cept mine's WAY more rusty) that I'll be parting out shortly- hit me up if you need any obscure trim parts. I'm in Baltimore, MD, so shipping on any bulky stuff could be pricey... BTW- the paint code is on the firewall ID plate (not the door jamb....

Re: Tire question

Personally, I'm fond of Miata Daiseys- plenty of 'em out there for cheap 'cuz the Miata ricer crowd wants to go BIG diameter wheels. The offset's good, the center hole is the same diameter as our cars, and they have tapered steel inserts for the lug nuts. Matter of fact, I've got 4 sets of 'em...

Do you have 12 volts at the coil with engine running and A/C on?

Re: Trans fluid fill through shifter?

Filling thru the shifter won't work. You pretty much have to get the filler plug on the front diff out. I've had the same problem you're experiencing in the past 'till I bought a 15/16" six point half drive socket- problem solved! Got a Craftsman from Sears. I assume you're using a 12 point socket? ...

Re: WTB: Passenger mirror

Yeah- you've got an '84 (flip-flop mirror) '85 and up had fixed ones. Have to check my stock, but if I have one, how's $15 plus the ride from 21214 sound?

Re: Burning oil.

Doesn't look like a 3AC head to me- how many valves does it have? If 12, it's a 3E.

Re: Burning oil.

Looks like a heater control valve- you sure it's a 3A engine and not a 3E (out of an '87 sedan; transverse engine?)

Re: WTB: Connecting Rods.

Got a full set of pistons and rods I removed from the engine that came out of my '85 SR5 years ago. Can't vouch for the condition of the pistons (engine had been overheated by the PO) but the rods are good- no spun bearings or anything. Only problem is that as I recall, Toyota used different rods an...
