Re: locked rear wheels

Thanks, dlb. I ordered the three cables from RockAuto. Not bad for $21.57 delivered! I cut the right rear cable, but still no drum rotation. Also tried a sledgehammer & a propane torch. Looks like I need to source replacement assemblies from a donor 2WD. Gonna research upgrade options, too, but not ...

Re: locked rear wheels

Trying your ATF suggestion today, Petros. Soaked the drum-to-backing-plate areas. I'll reapply several times, and hopefully have an update in a few days. By the way, I agree all the rear drum parts are affordable & easily attainable, except for the parking brake cables. What sellers I have found all...

Re: locked rear wheels

Thanks for the suggestions. Tried the big hammer method, but no luck. Looks like I'll have to rebuild the rear brakes ahead of schedule just to get the chassis to roll, before even thinking about the motor. Let's see.... PB Blaster, crowbar, muscles, & patience. LOTS of patience...

Adding air bags? Possible/practical???

OK, I know this is a longshot, but since I would like to return my '87 2WD wagon to commuter vehicle status soon, I got to thinking... I love the 36 mpg economy, but other than front disc brakes and seatbelts, the safety factor in thick, fast-moving traffic is a concern. Has anyone heard of a way to...

Re: Fuel door question

THANKS for the info! Now I know for sure that sweet pale-yellow wagon I've spotted parked behind a house for the last several months is a 4WD, even without being close enough to see the emblems. Wish me luck when Uncle Sam's refund check arrives...

Fuel door question

Quick question for you Tercel wagon guru's concerning the gas filler door... My '87 2WD has it on the driver's side, but I just spotted another wagon with the filler door on the passenger side. Was the side of the wagon with the gas filler door an indicator of the year model, or if a wagon is 2WD or...

3AC -- "Interference Engine"???

A mechanic buddy told me that the 3AC is NOT an interference engine, meaning if the timing belt let go driving down the freeway that the engine would freewheel with no piston/valve damage. True or false???

Re: Tercel Windshield Wiper Form

Windshield wiper form: For the computer illiterate, such as I, how can I copy & paste this form in order to place my personal contact info onto the form? Would Microsoft Paint be of use? What other software program would be best?

Wanted: '87 bolts & seat belt

Wanted: Complete driver's seat belt assembly (black) for my '87 Tercel 2WD wagon. Trying to keep my daily-driver safe & original. Also need the long bolt/washer that the power steering pump "pivots" on, and the bolt attaching the AC idler pulley to it's bracket. Surprisingly, no Tercel's in the area...
