Re: Snopocolypse Seattle: 2019

We're up to about a foot here and I'm loving it. I've lived most of my life in Montana and Idaho and will usually steal away back over there for a bit during the winter, I miss it. I sold my snow tires a couple weeks ago but even without them the Tercel eats the snow, its impressive. Forcast is show...

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

What I had read was that the Corolla GTS had baffles in 86-87 but even they didn't have them before that. I didn't find any reports other than Synthdesign's of the SR5's having them, sedans included. The metro throttle body has a 5/16 input and I was thinking about doing a 5/16 line and fittings and...

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

Thanks for the info, I saw that sender part but I bought a Denso inline pump for $45 that I'm gonna use for now. As I remember it it looked like the tank had a little bit of a low spot where the pick up was but I didn't notice anything else, is that what you mean?

Re: Stranded on the side of the road, no fuel delivery.

If there is enough gas in the tank for the pickup to suck it up the only other thing would possibly be a restriction like a really clogged fuel filter or pickup screen, especially if the tank is rusty. It would have to be very clogged though.

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

Thanks for the insight, I do already have EFI rated fuel line and clamps.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of mileage did you get with the CBR600 throttle bodies?

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

I was reading on another forum that people also had success using a very big spin-on diesel style fuel filter before a carb pump, just like the stock filter, with the efi pump after the carb pump. The carb pump can prime and pull fuel into the filter which acts as a surge tank. I already have a big ...

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

Mk2 vw's used an EFI fuel pump inside a little surge tank with a fuel filter mounted to it. I'm sure you could get one from a junkyard for less but heres a listing with a picture: https://goo.gl/Whmj5C.

Heres a $300 metro https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/ ... 77293.html

Oh, just noticed its an auto. The ecu is almost the same but you'd have to make a couple wiring changes.

Another one :) https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/ ... 63067.html

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

teranfirbt, thanks for the info, the surge tank in the engine bay would have to be the fastest way to do it but I'm still tempted to run the pump in the back just to minimize the amount of stuff in the engine bay and make it less dangerous if I run into a deer or something. I was just looking at you...

Re: Photobucket fix

yeah, then you could zoom in and view the whole image. printing them as pdf's would be faster though.

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

Eh, I'm just going to put the inline pump at the back with a big spin on filter up front where the stock one is, that should act as some kind of buffer. If the tank isn't baffled it shouldn't make much difference whether the pump is in there or not, it could suck air just as easily, and it will be a...

Re: Photobucket fix

I was just thinking that it might be a good idea to save some of the repair guides or more extensive posts with images as pdf's (simply print it as a pdf) so if it happens again they would be easy to reproduce. Looks like they all have a little paper clip by the title. There are a lot of non-photo b...

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

our Tecel tanks do not have baffles, neither do the EFI corolla tanks as I recall. if you can get a corolla fuel pump assembly, I am pretty sure it will mount in the Tercel fuel tank, the flange is the same. You would need both new supply (high pressure) and return lines. I think most people who sw...

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

The only other downside to that setup is that I think you'd still need a larger return line to the main tank which reduces its simplicity. Maybe you could use the vapor line?

Re: Fuel Tank Baffles

The bad news is that there are no baffles, at least not in my 83. Good news is that the tank looks fabulous inside, very clean. I've looked into a few different options: 1. just running it with an inline and nothing else 2. add a low pressure external lift pump in front of the high pressure with a b...
