Re: I have found an al25

David- Don't think Toyota ever made a FWD SR5 wagon- OP said he had a hatchback (two-door, I assume.) I kinda doubt the cargo covers from the wagons (either FWD or 4WD) would fit without modification. You are correct however, the FWD cover is longer (back seat is moved forward about an inch or so fr...

Re: locked rear wheels

Rear parking brake cables are different right and left (also different from 4WD.) I've replaced them on FWD and 4WD cars- always got 'em from Rock Auto. Never had a problem with a front cable. Did you leave the parking brake on for the 2 years it sat? Never a good idea. Maybe if you cut the cable (a...

Re: No More Moog

OK, been reading about different length inner tie rod ends here for a good while. I've ordered and replaced inner ends on our cars for years (decades) and have yet to find one that is the wrong length. The difference in advertised lengths is the overall length is 6.3" and the effective (not counting...

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!
