Re: Troubles after carburetor rebuild

I have an extra vacuum advance piece for the dizzy if you need it. It's a little banged up but I know it works for sure.

Re: Burning oil.

Got this bad boy in there and running today. Need to figure out how to set the timing with this harbor freight gun and change out the thermostat too and then I will finally be back on the road again!

Re: Burning oil.

Maybe it is a 2A head? The 1.3 L 2A was produced from 1979 through 1989. 2A motors in 1982 onwardsAL20 Tercels have a slightly different valve cover and timing belt cover than early AL11 Tercels, as well as an automatic choke, and automatically controlled hot air intake (HAI) system. It also has hig...

Re: Burning oil.

It's got 8 and then those weird flapper in the intake. This is open. 20170925_195438.jpg This is closed. 20170925_195434.jpg What is it blocking? I have no idea. It's vacuum operated and sounds as if it still works, just have to clean it out. Should I just throw this thing in and see what it does or...

Re: Burning oil.

Whatever this thing is, it controls these little things in the intake. It also has these markings on it as if it were build by a shop whenever that was.

Re: Burning oil.

I hope it's a 3a. Haha. Unless it's a 3e head? Never seen this before so I'm lost in the sauce over here.

Re: Burning oil.

You might be right, but I don't have 600 dollars to sleeve the block. :/ Unless I can buy the sleeves and do it myself, but I'm pretty sure you'd need special tools for all of that. I'll just have to keep waiting for something to pop up. The people over at rock auto said they will get some back in s...

Re: Burning oil.

Alright. Luckily enough I was able to find a complete 3a for 200 bucks. The guy who has it said it had been sitting in his garage for over 5 years. Might be out of an 87 tercel? Looks a little different than mine, the valve cover does anyway, but it is complete and looks good on the outside. Just ha...

Re: WTB: Connecting Rods.

I'll have to check on that with the machine shop then. I don't want to put it all back together and risk the wrist pin sliding out of the connecting rod and gouging my cylinder wall up again. Just want to make sure this is the last time I will be taking it apart again for a good while.

WTB: Connecting Rods.

In search of a set or connecting rods. With less that 200k miles preferably. Don't trust putting my old ones back in.

Re: Burning oil.

i would opt for a used block, but tercs around here are non existent. the machine shop just called now and said that .40 over fixed the gouge. my only problem now is finding .40 over pistons/rings. there's only one piston with rings available on Rock Auto and I don't know when they will ever have an...

Re: Burning oil.

Also; is the reason the wrist pin slid out of place the fault of the connecting rod? I really don't like that they have to be pressed in without retainers holding it in place. I just left the block at the machine shop and they said they will call me tomorrow to see if they can actually fix it by bor...
