Re: Front marker for 87’-88’?? Or 2WD?

Probably '83-'86 FWD- they were different from the T4s.

Headlight ass'ys ARE the same. Grills are different (but interchangeable.)

Re: Head gasket replacement issues and crankshaft pulley bolt size?

Mark- Bolt size is M12X1.25 and definitely NOT left-hand thread (just checked it on a spare I've got in my garage.) My guess is it was over-torqued during a previous repair. Hopefully the threads in the crankshaft aren't damaged...

Good luck!

Re: Manual swapping an auto tercel

You're gonna need a lot more than just the tranny and clutch ass'y- ie rear diff "pumpkin", driveshaft, top section of the floorpan (where the shifter levers mount) and a bunch of other odds and ends. I did it a few years back (do a search on "sex change" and the thread will come up) and couldn't be...

Re: Oh Boy! What a deal!

You WILL have to change the head light ass'ys (and electrical connectors) to swap grilles. (I've done it.)

Re: 4th gear shifting issue

I've found that if you use a 24mm (15/16") six point socket, you have a lot less chance of rounding out the fill plug head. Craftsman makes 'em.

Re: SR5 vs 2wd Part Compatibility

Take heart- Not ALL of the FWD seats are vinyl- my original '87 has real nice cloth ones. Far as I know, ALL Tercel wagons produced in 1988 were SR5S. Anyone here that here that knows otherwise, feel free to correct me. BTW- I can hook you up with outside rear view mirrors.

Re: SR5 vs 2wd Part Compatibility

Not sure about the front seats, but the rears will def. NOT swap over. FWD rear bottom cushions are hinged to fold forward allowing the back rests to fold level with the cargo area.

Re: Usable Parts from an Automatic?

Front strut tubes are shorter in FWD.
