Re: '85 DLX 2WD wagon added to wrecking yard in Lynnwood, WA on 3/18/2020

Would love to have the rear bumper- too bad it's on the other side of the country! ( I think the "rims" are actually wheel covers.)

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

Not sure if you've already tried this, but years ago when I bought my "good" T4 (that had been sitting for 10 years) I had a 5 mile drive back to the shop and rigged an aux. fuel tank using a gallon antifreeze container (fit real nice between the master cyl and the distributor.) Put a 90 degree bend...

Re: After market cruise control

Looks like a Speedostat unit made by Precision controls and sold by Montgomery Wards. I installed a bunch of 'em back in the day.

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.
