Back Right Brake Locking Up

Been awhile since I've been on here- been enjoying the tercel. Until my parking brake went wonky, that is. It started just not disengaging in the morning but now it's engaging while I'm trying to drive around. I've PB Blasted the cables really good a few times now but I still can't leave the parking...

Re: Did the blower motor fry?

I would think it's the motor, if a connector was fried like in that pic wouldn't there still be some change in blower speed?

Re: 83-86 sr5 alloys - vernon, bc - $80

I've got the same wheels on my 86 SR5, so the alloys definitely made their way into the US too, I wonder why they switched them up...

Just using what they had at the time maybe?

Re: Trouble Shifting into 1st and Reverse

After reading xirdneh's experience I don't think it's the cable, I got a new one off rock auto just to have but right now my money is on the pressure plate.

So I think I'm just gunna leave it at school over the break and then test the pressure plate when I get back.

Re: Trouble Shifting into 1st and Reverse

I read it and it looks like I'm gunna have to get the flywheel and pressure plate back out to test it. Unfortunately I only have one more day to work on it until next semester. So will driving it with a bad pressure plate until mid-January hurt anything in the trans? Just for the record, this has be...

Re: Trouble Shifting into 1st and Reverse

Thanks everyone, yeah I'm thinking it's the friction disc or the pressure plate, how do I know which one it is though, without dropping the tranny again? If it is the friction disc, about how long/how many miles would it take to wear enough off to be smooth again?- I know it's impossible for you guy...

Trouble Shifting into 1st and Reverse

Ok so I finished replacing the clutch in my terc about a week or so ago and today I filled up the trans with 80w90 gear oil. It shifted into all gears smoothly with the engine off. With the engine running its really hard to shift into 1st. I can shift into 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th just fine but when I...

Re: rear differential pictures

Nice pics! We just learned about servicing these in class- setting pinion depth, backlash, bearing preload and all that good stuff.
Why'd you take the whole axle off? Just to drain it easier?
And what are you doing to it- why'd you take it out in the first place?

Re: Teddy Bear Wheels

Really? He's had a few ads up asking 600 but I guess no one wants to ride around town on them.
I'm hoping he lowers it even more, I'm not actually ready to buy wheels but if these are available when I am they will be strongly considered.

Re: Bushings - Polyurethane or OEM?

Finally got them! I ordered on Sept. 19th so it took almost three weeks. One thing though, the Super Pro guys never sent any tracking to the shop in NC so that was kinda lame but not really a big deal. I'm hoping I can put my trans back in from doing the clutch tomorrow. I've been doing this clutch ...
