Re: North Seattle Terc, looks very interesting

Tis mine. Rescued it off a forum member a few years back. It had been abandoned in North Bend Washington with the driver's window down for the winter. The worst bit of damage is the driver floorboards which filled w water, froze and popped. I got it running and cleaned out a bit. I'm trying to slim ...

4WD selector shaft seal

While cleaning out some old boxes I found a Unicorn.
Seal has be discontinued for a number of years.
What's the best way to go about finding a reasonable replacement available for all now that I have the original to compare to?

Re: Anyone have a heater control valve?

The cablesnormally seizes and needs lube. It's pretty rare to have that valve lock. More common to have it leak or be crushed during service.
I have a few on hand if you need one.

Re: 80ish mph. Anyone else get er purring?

With my built 4ac puttin down 106ftlbs of torque in 2wd, weber carbed and delta performance cam on 3.73 gearing I can get upto around 110mph on flats with an average of 14mpg. Guzzles gas and eats cv axles.
Larry's is stupid fast. 20 to 60mph in 3rd gear in a second or two.

Re: Carrier bearing bushing play - how much is acceptable?

Little play or deflection ok. Maybe 1mm at the bearing. If the bearing has off spots of clunks it's toast. Carrier bearing rubber bushing should have no more than 7mm deflection up and down.

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

Toyota 6 bolt EFI Fuel Pump sender only fits from the Corolla Coupe GTS AE86s 85-87 inT4WD wagon. Sedan tank isn't as deep. 88 plus went to a larger diameter and 7 bolt pump housing flanges. There should be baffles in the tank surrounding the pickup and fuel level sender. Not major wall panels but g...

Re: CV axle interior bearings

You can try replacing the bearings in either side of a CV axle on a Tercel, either way you're setting yourself up for a catastrophic failure. The play is from wear and wallowing in the bearing gateways.The amount of time to remachine for a larger diameter bearing in the gateways and then reheattreat...

Re: 83 sr5 maxima vq30de & 350z 6 speed swap

The stock open rear end is good for a limited amount of torque. After about 200ftlbs, the open diff eats a pinion. It's a fun chasis for a RWD setup. Your going to want to use AW11 MR2 85-89 front hubs/knucles to deal with the removal of the front CVs. Stubbin the stock hubs doesn't work well. Looki...
