Re: The IceHawk!

Maybe swap in a diesel 2C-T engine like CathodeRayTube had been working on a while back? I feel like a diesel would be better suited to handle the added demand of the tracks.

You know, just in case you're looking for a crazy project to dedicate a few months and buckets of money to, lol.

Re: The IceHawk!

Congrats on the successful maiden voyage of the IceHawk. That's got to feel good. I love/hate the pics of the truck and trailer stuck in the slush. What a nightmare. If I had any doubts whatsoever about the ice, you can bet your balls I wouldn't be hauling a dang travel trailer out on it. Jeez louise.

Re: Manual transmission issues

I agree with Chris. The throw out and pilot bearings spin when the clutch pedal is pushed down. The input shaft bearings spin when the clutch is up. There are a few threads here about this so do a search for more info on how to replace the the ISB.

Re: 185/80 R13 tires

I ran that size of tire on my first tercel for a bit. I liked the look but found the ride felt a bit mushy.

Re: solar panel battery charging?

Cool! Is that a ventilation fan over the stove? What are you using as a power source to run it? Nah, no fan. Just the hood that was in the camper. Thought about adding a battery-powered fan and still might if we find condensation when cooking is an issue but for now we'll see how it is without one.

Re: solar panel battery charging?

Just remembered I've been meaning to post an update about our cabin for a while. All the exterior stuff is done now, and the propane appliances are in and working well. There is still lots to do though, like plumbing in the drain for the sink, interior door and window trim, more shelving, gutter and...

Re: Car dies when warm

See #6 in this FAQ: https://tercel4wd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7442 Thank you for directing me there! I am planning to check for leaks later today, but I'm not confident in my choke set-up. The choke settings are pretty straightforward. The fast idle should be set to 2000 rpm or so (it's been...

Cool that there's a kit. After watching the vid it would easily add a Snobear feature to the IceHawk (see my post in projects). I'm generally anti air suspension, but humm..
Do it!

Re: Oh Boy! What a deal!

If you click on the AE95G-CWMDH which is 1990-1995 they had adjustable suspension components. It also shows the diagram. Might be useful to retrofit? I will try and search again later today. The stock adjustable ride height systems in AE95's were notoriously prone to failures so while I agree they'...
