Re: What have you done to your wagon lately?

Thanks dlb! You just pulled a thorn from my side! That's not a big deal, I should be able to drop the rear mount and sneak in a new one.
Now I can go back to dreaming up a carb upgrade and focus on getting it to pass smog!

Re: What have you done to your wagon lately?

Finally got my 84 back on the road! When I bought it a year and a half ago it had a rebuilt 4AC, but within 5k miles it sounded like it had piston slap that was getting worse and worse. I did my first full tear down and took in the block and had it overbored .040", fully balanced, the flywheel light...

WTB Oil Pan

I'm in search of a oil pan to finish my 4AC rebuild, can't find one anywhere.

I had the pilot bearing seize to the input shaft and had a major struggle getting the engine and trans apart. I dented the oild pan and am Afraid it will no longer clear the crank shaft.

Thanks,

Re: How to lift your Tercel 4wd

I did this lift and was talking with the OP about the issues I had while doing it. Maybe he decided to delete it incase somebody killed themselves while attempting it. The strut inserts do not really fit in the strut tubes (too long), part of the post noted that and said to use a big ass channellock...

Re: Parting out 1985 SR5 dark blue, San Diego

Autooracle: Sorry, my friend who has a crumpled left front fender came and pulled it last weekend and hatch has almost reached entropy. Hteverow: I wouldn't call it good condition, it's been chopped and re-welded a few times (I don't know why). I don't think it would be worth shipping across the cou...

Re: Parting out 1985 SR5 dark blue, San Diego

People need blue seats and gold panels, I've got blue panels and brown seats. Figures.

Autoorace: You may already know this but 1983 and 84 have the antenna on the left fender and 85 and up have it on the right. This might not always be true but something to be aware of.

Re: Parting out 1985 SR5 dark blue, San Diego

If anybody can come trailer this car they can have it. I can throw in a transmission core (it was reported to be noisy but working). I just need to get this stuff out of here before my landlord comes down on me for turning his yard into the set of Sanford and Sons.

Parting out 1985 SR5 dark blue, San Diego

I'm parting out what's left of my nice 1985 dark blue Tercel and have some interior trim and other things from a 1983 Gold Tercel. If the parts are going to be picked up locally I will do local Pick Your Part pricing and am willing to make some negotiations for multiple parts. I'd prefer not to ship...

Re: car bucking at 2Krpm. Distributor cutting out?

Thanks for all your help everyone. The car ran a lot better after I swapped the fuel cutoff solenoids. I still have a bucking issue though. Now it will buck at any rpm in any gear warm or cold. If it let off the gas then reapply it will buck. Like its not getting fuel. This does not happen if I very...

Re: car bucking at 2Krpm. Distributor cutting out?

The brakes didn't drag at all on the way to work today. I wonder if the star adjustment wheel is causing this. Maybe anti-seize is not good enough for lube. I pumped the brakes when I had it up last night and they were fine afterward but I did not pump them that hard. I will try that when I get home...

Re: car bucking at 2Krpm. Distributor cutting out?

My EBCV measures 14ohms which is 1 ohm too high. I guess uts really close. Can a defective EBCV cause problems at idle too. Sometimes the ilde is right on then sometimes the car is about to die. I took a look at the brakes. I' should of mentioned that I replaced the cable on the sticky side already....

Re: car bucking at 2Krpm. Distributor cutting out?

Oh look a new post before i finshed typing! EVAP purge solenoid? never heard of it, is that the VSV or the outer vent control valve. I tested the vac switches after I got home from work. Switch A was open when when the engine was off and B was closed. When it was warm and running A was closed and B ...
