Re: after a few years away, I'm back in the wagon game.

I would say welcome back, but you never really left! Once a T4 owner, always a T4 owner.. One admirer of the Icehawk this winter reminisced about his best car ever. First car he ever had that always started, no matter what, and took a while to achieve again. And of course plows through the snow like...

Shows which ones age better! :lol: :wink:

Re: Passenger Window Jumps Track

Make sure to check both tracks for bending or damaged liner, or even a missing bolt. With the panel off and the window down check for excess movement. Can't remember if there are 1 or 2 roller tips where the regulator arms meet the glass. If there's 2 and one was dislodged that could also be causing...

Re: Finally found a roof basket

Roof racks look quite at home on our cars. A full basket would have helped for all the times my car was stuff sacked to the ceiling!

Re: Here are the hero(s) for the children that frequent this site:

So glad I grew up before the original age of cartoons slowly went away and the word hero was terribly diluted. Didn't take me long to think about the one that would likely be at the top of my "heroes" list. When it was still on the tube, I didn't know any other boys who wouldn't want to be Jonny Que...

Re: 2003 accent wiper controls only partially working

At the motor- Mist/hi setting should provide ground for the yellow wire. A headlight jumpered in to that and the fused pink wire will load test the circuit. If the light is bright, circuit good..

Considering the switch change did nothing that pretty much leaves the motor or a connection issue.

Re: Mr Heater propane heater in enclosed space?

Vented is always best but Buddy heaters are widely used in ice fishing shelters, along with their unvented wall mount equivalents. The one you got is what I use in my new "house". https://tercel4wd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14945 . I also have the Big one for my larger tent shelters. As was men...

Re: The IceHawk!

Maybe swap in a diesel 2C-T engine like CathodeRayTube had been working on a while back? I feel like a diesel would be better suited to handle the added demand of the tracks. You know, just in case you're looking for a crazy project to dedicate a few months and buckets of money to, lol. Haha! Quite...

Re: The IceHawk!

Tracks would be awesome and there should be bolt on units that already exist. Seen a fair share of vids of those mini trucks from Japan that aren't street legal with tracks on. Some of those have 4x100 bolt patterns and I think some side by side UTV's do as well. Would probably take some fabrication...

Re: Oil filter and exhaust gasket 86/87 with CAT

I use a Motorcraft FL1A oil filter on mine. Ups the oil capacity a fair amount.

Check the part stores or dealer for the exhaust gasket. If there is an old muffler shop near you they might have it.

Re: The IceHawk!

Well that was a lot of work! Not so much making holes, but taking them away. After really picking at scabs I found that the drivers floorboard was nearly completely comprised of sound deadener and the frame channel. Now it has some serious overkill with a 304 stainless floor! Ice this winter started...
