Re: Tercel Part blowout! EVERYTHING must go!

yes, sure I would. What ever you do not need I will be happy to buy from you. I will use them all eventually. I do not really need any used parts, or the CV axles (I have my own supply already). I drive thorough Portland several times a year going to California to visit family. I can get it all on o...

Re: 1981 Tercel Hatch

those first gen Tercel SR-5 seats would be hard to find, the SR-5 version is pretty rare as it is. finding one with good seats would be almost impossible. If it were me, I would salvage the seats out of the parts car, pull off the upholstery covers and either sew in fabric panels yourself, or take i...

Re: 87 tercel seattle

if the second one is not wrecked or a rust bucket, it is worth getting it road worthy. fix it up and it could pay for everything you spent so far. Around here clean and good running daily driver Tercel4wd will sell for over $3000, more if they are in top condition. they have become a kind of a cult ...

Re: Road Trip! T4wd Recovery for North of 64

I have done this several times, and I will be driving another Tercel4wd from Seattle to Boston starting next week, to deliver to another forum member. I am pretty confident I can fix most things along the way, though there are a few things that might end the trip. Which has not happened yet. We have...

Re: 87 tercel seattle

rockauto.com. sometimes they have them on sale cheap if they are over stocked. also there is a forum member selling a rebuild kit. BTW, unless you know the carb is bad, chances are it is not the carb. they are pretty reliable considering how complex they are. when ever I find a Tercel4wd that runs b...

Re: Rack and Pinion internal play?

if you are talking about how much it protrudes from both sides of the rack housing, I would get it even on both sides. There may be a centering mark, check the FSM.

Re: First issue

one of my mates seized up a brand new Stihl chainsaw late last year because he forgot to mix oil with the petrol. I have done that too, but not so dumb-ass. We have 5 acres of forest and chain saws are a common yard maintenance tool around here. We own a number of them, different sizes, as well as ...

Re: 87 tercel seattle

sometimes the clutch will rattle and people think the trans is bad and junk the car. what a shame, one should always diagnose the problem before they try and fix it. one thing you might do is drain and refill the trans with fresh gear lube, make sure you get all 4.1 quarts in it. Low gear oil can ma...

Re: Tercel Part blowout! EVERYTHING must go!

all of the new parts I have needed in the past, and will likely need in the future. So if no one is in desperate need of any of them, I will be happy to buy the whole lot.

Re: First issue

That's a great story!..How many of these type of stories end with a seized engine. yes, quite a few. you might actually find some of them if you search my old posts. In fact I seized an engine just last February on an attempted Tercel cross country rescue...I will have to tell that one another time...

what about window regulator? they seem similar, but no sure they are the same, would have to check the part numbers.

Re: Tercel Part blowout! EVERYTHING must go!

I would be interested in buying all the new parts from you if you give me a decent price. What do you want with for all the new parts?

I already have a lot used spare parts, so I do not need them.

Re: Augie

great save! Welcome to the forum, the number of these great little 4wd wagons is shrinking every year, often due to it needing some relatively simple repairs. Good for you for pulling Augie out from the jaws of the crusher. The transmission alone on it is worth quite a lot, no matter what is wrong w...
