Re: Headlight Relay Harness Upgrade

The wire for the normally closed terminal can be clipped and capped. I use glue lined shrink tube with a tail that can be pinched shut while still hot.

Re: Electric Water Pump Conversion

I'm with Petros on this. Rock simple and it's inherent reliability is a huge part of what appeals to me with these cars. In 25 years of T4'ing I've had only one pump failure. As long as the engine runs, it cools. To me, Kozuto is fixing a problem that doesn't exist. But I can appreciate the ingenuit...

Re: Headlight Relay Harness Upgrade

I would suggest weatherproof automotive relays for under the hood. I use these, the matching relay is shown too.

I also get my wire there, way better than what's found in most stores.

Re: Anybody? Rain leaking in on drivers side

I've encountered this on more than one T4. For me it's always been windshield related, usually rust holes in the window frame. It drips out of the seam between the pillar and upper windshield trim, good for wetting left knees too.. Parking with the front end lower makes it worse with all the roof ru...

Re: The IceHawk!

https://www.cabelas.ca/product/140862/cabelas-eze-drill Just found this one on Cabela's web site. Any comments? Just realized it's an 8". No experience with that one, or any others for that matter. Couple negative reviews though. Have also heard many complaints about Cabela's in general since BPS b...

That is just too wild, man! Awesome, practical, and fun all at the same time. What an incredibly creative idea and it looks quite cozy, too.
Thanks!

Re: The IceHawk!

Great video Splatterdog. Love your creativity! I would like to get an ice auger that will run on a cordless drill. I have a Dewalt 18v 1/2" drill, nothing fancy but not brushless. I was told you need brushless regardless but would like to know why. I've read about various reasons why but would like...

Re: The T4WD community has lost another member

Sorry for your loss. Is his T4 still around? Could be a great memorial to remember him by.

Re: What a day to turn 200K

Brought this one back due to a reoccurrence, with yet another "parts" car. The Icehawk hit it while doing it's job this weekend, quite well as usual. Even had another ice fisherman yell "that's bad ass!" when he saw me auger a hole from the driver seat with no cold wind in my face or water splashed ...

Re: Replacing airbags

Pretensioners are part of the airbag system, they "blow" too causing the belt to shorten up some before you eat the bag. Control module should also be replaced.

Re: 1987 Corolla FX 16

Yuck! Motorcraft has an aggressive rust removing chemical. Follow directions and don't leave it in too long if you try it, it's some strong stuff.

Re: water pump to heater core flow direction?

You need to pay dlb a visit, if he still has a Gates flush gun. It's the next best thing to a new core. I do still have mine. Simon, the next time you drive it out here we can use it on the Tercedes. It's been a while but I remember it being stupid simple -- just disconnect the upper and lower rad ...
