Re: Brake Lines

This may sound obvious, but don't use a plumber's flaring tool to flare the ends of the tube as it will leak.

Re: 4wd manual transmission mount

Cut and welded, or hammered into shape?

I removed the bracket from the old 4wd mount and welded it on top of the 2wd mount.

Re: Air Condiotioner Temp Controller

I checked the FSM. It is called the AC Amplifier. Located below the glove box. I guess you guys on the American Continent wouldn't need one of these right now going by some of your recent posts.

Air Condiotioner Temp Controller

I have the attached air conditioner rpm setting controller in my spare parts kit. Does anybody know where it is located on the Tercel?

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

Petros - My wife takes the view that I'm an engineer and I'm allowed to express myself. She thinks it that it's very clever and creative and very good use of recycled material. I also make most of my own furniture out of wood and this is just another piece of furniture.

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

The glass top is tinted green. That's probably why it looks a bit green. I have considered putting some plastic plugs on the end of the valve stems. I'm currently looking for something that will fit snugly. I may to to make my own from rubber tubing. Thanks for the suggestion.

rer233 - Yes, Valves and springs supporting the top and small hose clamps (Jubilee clamps) holding the valve stems at the bottom of the angle irons.

Re: 3AC & 4AC Coffee Table

Thank you. None of the parts has been been destroyed. So if I'm desperate I can still retrieve them. I got the missus involved. She picked the paint. The pistons move up and down freely by turning the front pulley by hand. I had to put it on wheels because of the weight.

Re: Driving without power steering belt

Mattel, I have a fully reconditioned power steering unit that I was going to install on my Tercel. But I've decided to stay with manual steering. If it will fit your Corolla 4wd, you are welcome to it.

Re: REAR WHEEL BEARINGS $5.44!!

Did you get new retainer rings or are you going to try using the old ones? Normally I grind them off and replace them.

Re: Inquiry from the blue: "Want to sell your Tercel?"

It wouldn't hurt to replace the ignition lock and install a kill switch. I have two Tercels and I was able to start either car with the same key, until I replaced the ignition lock in my good one. In Oz, I doubt anybody would be interested in stealing a Tercel, so I'm leaning towards your first poss...

Re: VIN Numbers on all the windows

Mine hasn't. Maybe a previous owner had it done in case the car gets stolen.
