Re: Clutch pedal release sector

when I got my 86 fwd wagon the pedal went hard to the floor so I used 5/8 flat washers ,cut a slot in them and pulled the cable out from the bell housing and dropped them on,,it took 5 to get the clutch pedal back to normal,run her over 100000 miles like that,,2 dollar fix

Re: How to lift your Tercel 4wd

Re: How to lift your Tercel 4wd

there is no outer bearing on the diff,,the cast carrier is what supports the axle,, I must of lucked when I swap mine the bearing shims on the one I was putting on were the same thickness as my old one and I blued the teeth and had perfect mesh
