Re: 1984 Tercel SR5 wagon & mountains of parts - $700 - Longmont, CO

Is this still for sale?? I'm extremely interested, although I moved back home from Portland to Anchorage Alaska last year, so I don't know when or how I'd exactly make it down there at the moment unfortunately. I dont know how much it would cost to ferry it up from Seattle....

Re: 1987 Toyota Tercel Wagon - $443 Portland, OR

I wonder why it wont pass deq? Says because its modified? I had a weber on mine and it passed deq. I had to rebuild the head also, but anyways I might go check this one out. Im a 45 min drive from McMinnville and see if its worth fixing the transmission. Looks clean inside. Wish it was a sr5 though

Re: 84 Toyota Tercel sr5 - $500 Portland, OR

Ive been seeing this one for a while now and ive been a bit suspicious since the very first time. If it really had all those new parts put in top to bottom only 20k ago why only $500? Im assuming he did the work himself and did something wrong to lead the gasket to blow in only 20k also.... And 40mp...

Re: grinding when turning hard right. cv?

If it was a wheel bearing wouldn't it be a constant noise though?

loud ticking noise under a load

I am hearing a very noticeable ticking noise from the motor. It sounds like a bad valve lash, but it only occurs at low rpm and in gear under a load. I can hear it especially when driving by concrete road dividers and the sound is bouncing off of them. When in neutral the tick is non existent at any...

grinding when turning hard right. cv?

When I have the steering wheel dug to the right I am getting a bad grinding sound. This could possibly mean a bad cv on the drivers side correct?

It's an 85 2wd tercel.

Re: switching to electric choke

Disregard. Grabbed the old plug from my stock carb and ran the red wire from it to the choke

switching to electric choke

My stock carb had a vacuum operated choke and my weber has an electric one. I'm trying to figure out which 12v ignition wire I could piggy back off of to run to the choke. Has anyone done this conversion before and could inform me of which wire, or plug I could run off of?
