Re: RWD Battle Wagon

well guys, I was half way done writing a book on my 7age swap, got distracted by a few things, came back, clicked preview, had to sign back in, and EVERYTHING was gone. UGH

If its okay with you, one of my coworkers would like to attend, especially if we do any off roading. He has a pretty stout 4x4 tacoma tha...

Re: RWD Battle Wagon

So, if people are interested, I built a 7age and dropped it in my first gen tercel. The drivetrain is the same for 2wd and 4wd (minus the rear end), and can gather up some picture if theres enough interest

Re: Tercel4wd.com Midwest meet/greet??

I think it would be awesome (assuming my tercel is running)! If you would like, I could invite a few of the other Toyota guys I've befriended through autocross /rallycross (one is a fx16, ae86, and another tercel guy!). I'd be down for mild off roading, however, I only have summer tires and all seas...

Poor gas mileage

Hello-- I recently acquired a 1981 base Tercel w/ 3ac and 4spd manual. I've been having to drive it since my wagon got mushed by a drunk driver (story for another thread). I just started tracking the mileage, and I'm getting around 18mpg. There have been no mods done to the car, except a 2.5" stainl...

Re: RWD Battle Wagon

I have another question. How did the exhaust manifold fit previously on the 4age? I am still in the process of gathering parts, and saw this manifold for sale, and wondered if it'd clear the steering shaft.

Re: slamming out of first gear on take off from a stop

Not gonna lie, I also have a similar issue. I need to try the atf flush. With mine, instead of popping out of first, I cannot get it into first if it's going faster than 5mph. And third gear is a bit crunchy. What causes third to crunch?

Re: Battle Wagons I & II feat. 4age rwd wagon

THis car is RWD there is no front diff or axles or any of that crap. And I converted to manual rack so there is almost nothing there in the way except the sway bar, but I will be doing some test fitting this weekend. Schwoops I forgot. You're going to try to put a t50 in, right? Then the only issue...

Re: Battle Wagons I & II feat. 4age rwd wagon

I am determined to keep the 2 piece oil pan. I have a couple idea of how to make it fit. I should be working on this some more this weekend and will update the thread with pics! Thanks guys for the continued interest. The issue I had were -- the oil pan hit the hump on the top of the differential, ...

if you plan to use that tranny you will have to take it apart to find out whats going on in there
hopefully it will not self destruct before then
If someone where to ask you to rebuild their tranny, how would you go about doing that?

Re: Bushing or not

Also, depending on the state of your sway bar, you may have to get creative on removing it. My '88 came off no problem, but my '85....Lets just say it involved a large ratchet strap, large tree, and me driving in reverse. First and last time I ever want to do that.... 1. Did you see the listing in ...

Transmission Noise

It seems like 90% of my posts here are transmission related...Anywho, I am coming here to get advice about an odd noise that is coming from my transmission. Ever since I got the car, its made the noise, hasn't gotten worse, no issues with driveability aside the ones that were there before. Sometimes...

Re: Bushing or not

Rock auto does not have the sway bar end link bushings. I had to get mine from a dealer. For the 4 rubber pieces, 4 washers, and the 2 inner metal shafts was around $120. Ridiculous in my opinion. Also, depending on the state of your sway bar, you may have to get creative on removing it. My '88 came...

Re: Battle Wagons I & II feat. 4age rwd wagon

I am also interested in this. I made a 7ac for my tercel, however i want to make it into a 7ag with a tbi unit. I already have a 4agze intake to use with my build. I was going to slap my 32/36 on it, however, holley just came out with a 2 barrel sniper tbi unit that I may pick up and slap on. Plus s...

Re: Wiper blowing fuse

The problem isnt that it's blowing them while the wipers are on. The fuses are blowing when I'm driving. I'll put a fuse in, itll work (sometimes), then a few days later, when I need to clean my windshield, the fuse is blown again. I doubt its a short in a motor since both wiper motors work fine. My...
