Re: WTB i need this, speedo elbow

I don't have an extra but they need to be lubed every so often. I usually disconnect at the speedo & transmission. Spray cable lube into the speedo side & turn the cable at the transmission side by hand. Spray a little more into the speedo side & turn again. Keep doing this until the cable lube appe...

Re: Just spitballing ideas.

Ideal would be 1985 toyota truck running gear with the 5spd trans. I don't know if mounting leaf spring brackets on the tercel would be a safe course due to the lack of a "real" frame. Samurai running gear would work also. The other concerns would be the trans hump in the car would have to be modifi...

Re: Problem with Lack of Power and Odd Sounding on Accelleration

They are also prone to collecting moisture in the distributor cap after running through water. I usually run a thin bead of silicone grease across the lip of the cap where it meets the distributor when putting it back on.

Re: Situation...steering link ball joint stuck

Some parts stores will loan tools, maybe Oreillys or Autozone in your area?

Re: Situation...steering link ball joint stuck

You can use a puller similar to this to remove it. Measure the width of the joint & buy a puller appropriate to that size. https://www.harborfreight.com/tie-rod-and-pitman-arm-puller-63684.html?cid=paid_google|*PLA+-+All+Products+-+Lower+Sales+Items|New+Products+-+%282%29+Price+%2410-30|63684&utm_so...

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

I had my first Tercel up to 90 in Montana back in the "Drive at a safe speed" speed limit days. It sure took a while to get there though. This was an 1983 5 speed car.

The 3.4l v/6 is a much better engine than the 3.0

Re: 1999 4runner

Another good site for Toyota https://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php None of the Toyotas of that era get great gas mileage & are somewhat under powered .
I have a 90 4runner with 390,000 on it & still working fine. Which engine does it have?

Re: Snopocolypse Seattle: 2019

You must be near my elevation or a little higher. We are at 600ft. At the end of my road above us they have 37 inches but are at 1100ft. My locked 4runner with dual transfer cases has been driving right up the hill so far. I also have the tires at 12lb of air pressure which helps a ton.

Re: Front / rear axle diff gaskets

I use the FPIG from Toyota part # FIPG 00295-01281 for this type of thing. Seems to work better than generic silicone sealants.
