Re: Car runs, dies, runs

Agreed with the other gents. Marginal electronics tend to work fine when cold then act up once warm so I'd try swapping the dizzy with a known good one.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

Peter, I think LBC is talking about an inner tie rod, whereas it sounds like you're talking about a bushing.

LBC, I've replaced a handful of inner tie rods with no problems. I hope it's just a one off. Are you able to exchange the part at least?

Re: Bad form to list a 1980 2wd for sale here?

I love those first gen hatchbacks. So tiny and minimal, and a cool quirky style. Imagine putting a louver on that back window, like the old Firebirds used to have. That would be siiiiick. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/DP6vWEGVVuI/hqdefault.jpg I don't think anyone here will have a problem with posting your...

Re: Deer fly traps

Well, this is timely info. We've been slowly working away on our cabin several hours north and have noticed some annoying horseflies there on the hot days. Not a ton but any horseflies are too much, so I'll remember this and possibly give it a try sometime.

Re: Deer fly traps

Ditto, I've never heard of these fly traps. I've actually never heard of deer flies either, are they like horseflies? And what camp are you at? Hunting camp, or camping with the fam, or Camp Crystal Lake? https://static1.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11128/111281580/5152302-42574-welcome-to-camp-cr...

Re: New(er) RV!

Wow, that's a big boy. How long is it? Lol @ "hosing off the kids." I like that visual. I actually really like outdoor showers on campers/RV's, interior space is too valuable to waste on a shower stall that doesn't see much use.

There are lots of threads on how to do this. Do a search for "weber fuel pressure regulator" or something like that.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

Yeah, if I don't have access to good used spare parts then I use the same approach as you now, Prof. We have a mechanic just down the road who doesn't mind pressing stuff for me for a reasonable price. Doing it at home without the proper equipment sucks.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

$120 worth of parts with $80 shipping from Rockauto are on the way to say the least. Bushings for the front sway bar and control arms, have you already replaced the control arm bushings? I found that to be one of the most annoying jobs on the T4. I preferred to swap the whole control arm out for on...

Re: Tercel 4WD alternatives?

Ha, I've made those same kind of trips in the snow just because I could. My first gen Rav4 was excellent in the snow this last winter, it was very tempting to make a mid-snowstorm cheese curd trip. Duly noted on the sway bar links, I'll take a close look at them when I dig into it. I've always liked...

Re: Manual Transmission Removal and Re-Installation

Is ricky2marin a low-grade spammer? Of their two posts, each one has a link to something. It's not the usual gibberish we see in spam here but it is very suspicious.

I vote to ban ricky2marin.

Re: Tercel 4WD alternatives?

Don't forget about true 4wd, not that wussy awd business. My T4 dragged an 05 CRV across the lake last winter. Looked like it gave 90/10, maybe 80/20 at best. A T-case lever on the floor would be a deal maker! I might be asking for trouble mentioning this here but I just bought an '05 CRV. It's got...

Re: Wiper Blades ?

You can also just replace the rubber blade portion and not the rest of the metal frame. This is way cheaper, and less wasteful. I get blade refills at Canadian tire but can't find them listed on their site. This is what I'm talking about though. http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/121971798371-0-1/s-l1000...

Re: WTB: 3-port Distributor Vacuum Advance

So cap off the nipples on the vacuum advance module and plug the vacuum hoses until I find a replacement? Or can I just leave the hoses connected (will there be a vacuum leak with the hoses still connected?) Disconnect the hoses and plug them. Yes, they will still leak if connected to the advance u...
