Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

Petros - My wife takes the view that I'm an engineer and I'm allowed to express myself. She thinks it that it's very clever and creative and very good use of recycled material. I also make most of my own furniture out of wood and this is just another piece of furniture.

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

The glass top is tinted green. That's probably why it looks a bit green. I have considered putting some plastic plugs on the end of the valve stems. I'm currently looking for something that will fit snugly. I may to to make my own from rubber tubing. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

rer233 - Yes, Valves and springs supporting the top and small hose clamps (Jubilee clamps) holding the valve stems at the bottom of the angle irons. At first the missus thought it was going to look bad, especialyy since it was dirty and greasy, but once I had it all cleaned and degreased she was ok ...

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

Thank you. None of the parts has been been destroyed. So if I'm desperate I can still retrieve them. I got the missus involved. She picked the paint. The pistons move up and down freely by turning the front pulley by hand. I had to put it on wheels because of the weight.

It's not a V8, but it means a lot more than a V8.

Re: Driving without power steering belt

Mattel, I have a fully reconditioned power steering unit that I was going to install on my Tercel. But I've decided to stay with manual steering. If it will fit your Corolla 4wd, you are welcome to it.

Re: REAR WHEEL BEARINGS $5.44!!

Did you get new retainer rings or are you going to try using the old ones? Normally I grind them off and replace them.

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

It wouldn't hurt to replace the ignition lock and install a kill switch. I have two Tercels and I was able to start either car with the same key, until I replaced the ignition lock in my good one. In Oz, I doubt anybody would be interested in stealing a Tercel, so I'm leaning towards your first poss...

Re: VIN Numbers on all the windows

Mine hasn't. Maybe a previous owner had it done in case the car gets stolen.

Re: First issue

Just to add my 2 cents worth - one of my mates seized up a brand new Stihl chainsaw late last year because he forgot to mix oil with the petrol.

Re: First issue

Simon, I know this sounds stupid, but don't be tempted to wedge the pulley out using a big screw driver or chisel. The pulley is made from casting material and the back flange is easily broken. This happened to me once and I had a lot of trouble finding a replacement pulley. Also the thin aluminium ...

Re: New to the group, couple of tire/rim questions..

These Miata wheels look like they were made for the Terc. I wish they had them in oz. I wonder if Mazda sold them under a different name here. I'll do some searching. Mattel would you know by any chance, mate?

Re: Fuel filter level?

Have you tried to start the car with the fuel line from the pump to the carbie disconnected? That will tell you if the pump isn't working.
