Re: New here. Need help. Need a trans.

New to this Tercel endeavor. I acquired an 83 Sr5 wagon with the 6 speed 4wd trans. We own a repair shop in Crestview Florida and had a traveling customer leave the car and title with us. It has some transmission issues, ( hard to shift) won’t go into neutral. Out the $1000’s a month we pay for rep...

Ouch at that last line. Those units are already worth far too much on eBay.

Thank you again.

I have a simple butane torch. Would that enough if I heat with it?
Any sort of pre-heat will aid in penetration, as well as chase moisture out of the joint. I think you'll be good.

Re: How to Replace a Head Gasket: Petros method

Perfect. Thank you. I have 2 3a motors I am building now, and have a 4a I hope to finish first. I realize that the 4a gasket (ITM brand) has a hole for the coolant between all the cylinders on the opposite side of where the added holes would go, and the OEM Toyota 3a gasket has none. Should the 4a ...

Re: Arc or Gas welding suitable for chassis repair

Allow me to interject. Oxygen acetylene welding or "OAW" is NOT stronger than a proper arc weld. The maximum tensile load of an OAW joint is 45000 psi, An arc weld is usually between 60000 and 80000 psi depending on the process and the filler metal used. In your case, I would recommend an arc weld o...

it does not upset me, but I think you send a mixed message with a decal like that. Tercel4wd.com refers to this private forum, owned by the members (more or less).

Re: 1985 Tercel 4wd Restoration

What a beauty she's become! If you don't mind me asking, did you have fight at all to get that much for your wrecked car? $2000 seems like a lot, (from the perspective of a stingy insurance corporation of course) for a car of that vintage with "low collectable value." If there was any trick you used...
