Re: The beater's new shoes

Yeah, I call that "snow drags." It's great pulling up next to some performance car (or even 4WD truck) at a light, selecting EL and blowing them away when the light turns green. Only time our cars can be even remotely "fast." BTY, I've been running 185/60 14" Michelin X-ICEs on my beater in the wint...

Re: 85 For parts in yard

Far as I know, all DX's have the mist feature, and all SR5's have the intermittent (except of course for the elusive adjustable intermittent/cruise control- which I've never encountered.) Also, I'm pretty sure the controls differ between 4 and 5 pin wiper motors.

Re: Wiper blowing fuse

If the fuse in question also controls the rear wiper, check where the wiring harness passes from the main car body to the rear hatch- I've seen wires break there, and it's possible the insulation could rub thru- causing your short. Also be aware that the "park" wire for the motor sees 12v whenever t...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

Bryan- I've got the EXACT same car as your project ('cept mine's WAY more rusty) that I'll be parting out shortly- hit me up if you need any obscure trim parts. I'm in Baltimore, MD, so shipping on any bulky stuff could be pricey... BTW- the paint code is on the firewall ID plate (not the door jamb....

Re: Tire question

Personally, I'm fond of Miata Daiseys- plenty of 'em out there for cheap 'cuz the Miata ricer crowd wants to go BIG diameter wheels. The offset's good, the center hole is the same diameter as our cars, and they have tapered steel inserts for the lug nuts. Matter of fact, I've got 4 sets of 'em...

Re: Trans fluid fill through shifter?

Filling thru the shifter won't work. You pretty much have to get the filler plug on the front diff out. I've had the same problem you're experiencing in the past 'till I bought a 15/16" six point half drive socket- problem solved! Got a Craftsman from Sears. I assume you're using a 12 point socket? ...

Re: WTB: Passenger mirror

Yeah- you've got an '84 (flip-flop mirror) '85 and up had fixed ones. Have to check my stock, but if I have one, how's $15 plus the ride from 21214 sound?

Re: Rear transmission leak - Can't find part number

Toyota PN for a M/T tailshaft seal is 90311-32010. Actual manufacturer is NOK- their PN is AH1904F. Sorry, no dimentions written on my seal.
