Re: Question about lash, or play in drive line on an 85

I have very similar issue with drive-line slop, as described by thread originator "Langsmer". I also get a heavy clunk and jerk when the drive-line torque changes back and forth between positive accelerating to negative decelerating. It feels like towing with a chain when it snaps tight and jerks th...

2001 Prius wheels a good fit?

14 inch 4x100 -- 2001 Prius wheels, tire P175/65r14

Are these a good fit for stock T4 ?
To me it seems like the increased hub offset might push the wheel further into the wheel well,
decreasing the wheelbase width.

Is this normal?

What are the extra hoses and canisters between the air cleaner and radiator?
They look stock, but I've never seen this before.

Re: Secondary throttle failure

I found one of my 2nd throttle diaphragms to be full of old gas (smells like gas, brown and thicker like rotten gas). A lot dripped out when I removed diaphragm from carb. Not sure how this can happen even if the flange gasket was bad. Is this an o ring that gets squished flat? There was barely any ...

What happened to those nice rims in the 'day 1' photo? Do you know what car they came from, where to get them, or want to sell yours?

Re: Secondary throttle failure

Thanks guys for all the tips and post threads you are sharing! I removed the two EBCV vacuum lines from the carburetor, connected them to each other to seal them off, and capped shut the 2 carb ports they were connected to. I'm sure this also disabled the HAC, but i'm at sea level, so it's not impor...

Re: Secondary throttle failure

Has anybody had luck cleaning the EGR valve.... any tips to share?
I found mine completely plugged with hardened carbon.
Soaking it for days with penetration spray used to release nuts bolts, had no effect on the carbon.

Re: '87 SR5 -- JUST ADDED to Pick-n-Pull Portland South, Oregon

I go to 2 different Pick-N-Pull yards near Portland regularly and see their pattern of clearing rows and crushing old inventory. There is always a complete row, or parts of 2 adjoining rows sitting empty, allowing forklifts space to operate. The empty row progresses steadily across the yard (and or ...
