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
Count me as interested

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

"Tie rod" is a reasonable abbreviation of "tie rod end", no? No. the tie rod end is a different part from the actual tie rod. The word "tie rod" itself has a different function than the rod end. please use consistent terminology or we can not communicate. "Rod end" as in "inner rod end" would be a ...

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

I see the confusion, you all are using incorrect terminology. for the record, there is no such thing as an "inner tie rod" on a Tercel. There is an inner tie rod "end" (it is a ball and socket type of end), there are inner and outer tie rod "ends". there is no inner or outer tie rods on a Tercel. "...

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

Peter, I think LBC is talking about an inner tie rod, whereas it sounds like you're talking about a bushing. LBC, I've replaced a handful of inner tie rods with no problems. I hope it's just a one off. Are you able to exchange the part at least? Oh god.. You ever find something on your car that mak...

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

One of the inner tie rods I replaced at the beginning of the summer has failed.

What a pain in the ass.

Must have been faulty, unless this is a common occurrence?

Re: Toyota is making an updated Tercel 4wd!

I was wondering what they are thinking those belts or straps they have though the seats. it appears they are going for a rugged retro look, rather than something practical. I am not sure how you would use those. Generally concept cars have unconventional little ideas on them that never come to frui...

What pattern is the interior? I'm unfamiliar with the 86's. Any chance the door panels are the stripey tweed look?
Stripey tweed was on the '87 and '88 models I believe.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

What's the part number on the poly bushings? I'm getting ready to do ball joints, inner and outer tie rods, struts and springs, strut mounts, and control arm bushings. I might as well do the sway bar bushings while I'm in there. I got them through eBay here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/SuperPro-SWAY-BA...

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

$120 worth of parts with $80 shipping from Rockauto are on the way to say the least. Bushings for the front sway bar and control arms, have you already replaced the control arm bushings? I found that to be one of the most annoying jobs on the T4. I preferred to swap the whole control arm out for on...

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

Finished my front end work up yesterday with the installation of some super pro polyurethane sway bar bushings. Oh what a feeling! those poly bushings are worth the extra $$$.

Also I picked up two more tercels to accompany Jenny. One parts car and one beater. Plenty of tercel work to go round!

Re: Tercel name

From wikipedia:

The name "Tercel" derives from the Latin word for "one third" as the Tercel was slightly smaller than the Corolla[citation needed]—much the way "tiercel" refers to a male falcon, which is one-third smaller than its female counterpart.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

New stuff in the works. Changed inner and outer tie rods; took ol' Jenny in for an alignment. Shop says they couldn't do the alignment because the front end had too much movement in it. They gave me a nice little list of things to replace though, they wanted $1100 to do it. That doesn't jive with my...
