Re: 4WD fuel pickup line?

I did try bending my 2wd pickup, and it is feasible to make it work. The real issue is that all the tubes are clocked differently on the 4wd tank, which means you have to put a twist in the lines (prone to snapping). Apparently I didn't do that well enough, because my float contacts the fuel pickup....

Re: inclinometer in kamloops for $200

I want it and it's close enough to me but I'm not willing to spend that much on principle. One day I'll get lucky at a pick n pull and find one for a cool $25.

Re: Brand new transmission internals!?!

They dont have most parts that they claim they do. Amayama is a japanese parts exporter, and their supplier for toyota parts is toyota. If you want something strange, lets say a new leather sr5 shift knob (an option on the first gen tercels), and amayama says they have it, they more than likely don...

Re: 4WD fuel pickup line?

I need a source for one too. I tried modifying a 2wd one and it works, but comes into contact with my float so the gauge won't read below 1/2 tank. Frustrating.

Brand new transmission internals!?!

I found a site out of Japan that claims to have all manners of new parts for our cars. Including unobtainium like new body panels and transmission internals. Naturally, I'm sceptical of whether or not they actually stock the parts. There isn't anything I currently need from this site, but I'm VERY c...

"I'm not completely sure I understand... My car is an '86 without tilt steering, so does that mean the short shaft is the same or different for the '87 tilt column?"

yes, those should interchange as long as you replace all of the parts together, one to the other.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

After changing out the gas tank, I had an issue with the fuel gauge not reading properly (just above empty on a full tank). A tough pill to swallow considering that a replacement sending unit is like $300 or so on rock auto. Luckily for me, the problem was solved by taking the sending unit out and p...

Oil is low. No sign of fluid once I removed the 24 mm fill plug. What to do?
Drain what fluid is left in the transmission and replace it.

Really the dealer gave me a seal for that part.
What does the seal look like?

Re: gas tank pad

so whats the generic gas tank cushion? some kind of foam? that goes on top of the tank and below the body. toyota obsoleted it and i do not know what to look for in generic terms. It is a rubber sheet. I reused mine when I did my tank, but if I were to replace it I would go to a home improvement st...

Re: Hi there from here in wisconsin

how does the filler neck cap holder come off? The filler neck comes off by removing the 6 or so bolts around the base of it. If you're talking about the big chunk of metal around the top of the filler neck that seals with the body of the car... well I just had that same dilemma. As far as I know it...

the manual rack uses the longer tie rods. the power steering rack uses the shorter ones.

I mean really, how often can you really ride a bike in the climate you live in?
FYI, Duncan BC is located between Victoria and Nanaimo, and is above freezing basically year round.
