Re: Front Axle Spline That Goes In Too Tight Fix

This should not need to be done. What brand axles are you using?!

Re: Terc #2

A blower might flow better at low RPMs with that engine as they are built to rev and may not have the exhaust gas volume at low engine speeds to spin up the turbo.

Re: 85 lifted Tercel

Did you space down the engine crossmember and anti-roll bar mounts as well, or just the strut tops?

Re: 2020 tercel successor not available in the states.

...if they introduce these AWD models, it lowers their average fleet economy, meaning they would have to cut out their larger (more profitable and more popular) models. they would not do that for a nitch market on an entry level model... Exactly, because Americans buy mostly vehicles that are large...

Re: 2020 tercel successor not available in the states.

250 hp Yaris in AWD? video says it has aluminum body panels and LSD! Europe and japan get all of the cool stuff. thanks to our illustrious government looking out for our best interests. It probably has more to do with American's penchant for trucks, crossovers and SUVs than our government regulatin...

Re: Toyota is launching a Heritage Parts project to reproduce old parts

So lets find a single Supra VIN that we all use, so that they can link all the AL25 requests to that VIN and see that there is other demand. Just make sure in the description that you're clear that the parts you're requesting are NOT for an A80 Supra, but for an AL25 Tercel. Found a VIN on eBay: JT2...

Re: Toyota is launching a Heritage Parts project to reproduce old parts

This. Is. Huge... We need to put together a list to submit to Toyota to urge them to support us. The AL25 may not be a flagship, but with today's popularity of quirky 80's culture, the Tercel should be up near the top of the list (after Supras, Celicas, Corollas, MR2s and the rest of the "fun" cars)...

The VSV does not appear to be functioning.
I've got a brand new VSV if you want a replacement.

Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

Mid-summer follow up: The transmission is still shifting beautifully even in ~90* F weather. Redline MT-90 for the win! Mid-winter update: I drove around in some low-to-mid-30s (*F) temperatures in the Tercel over the last few weeks. The Redline MT-90 still feels great with no grinding in any gear ...

I'm also curious if there's anything else you need to do when upgrading the alternator...like to the wiring or whatever?
It wouldn't hurt to run new cables, considering they're underbuilt and 30+ years old...
