Re: Timing settings for 87 TERC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjZKPZUipHY Thanks Derek yeah I've heard a bit about this and also many other european countries got rid of their Tercels that way - which I reckon is a pretty cool way for a Tercel to go rather than a scrapheap in the midlands or something. I have been chatting to t...

perhaps, if a bunch of us get together and get in contact with them we could get a final run made by them?

Re: after a few years away, I'm back in the wagon game.

We never got that 2wd model Corolla Wagon in Australia however we did get a newer model a few years back back and there are companies importing low mileage hybrid corolla fielder wagons with the prius running gear from Japan that look really good and are perhaps 5 years old.

Re: after a few years away, I'm back in the wagon game.

Hey, welcome back David! I always feel a bit guilty for pushing you to that corolla All-trac! I've still got mine and a Vanagon. I had to buy a whole corolla wreck from the other side of Australia to get a glass sunroof because the steel one rusted out.

Re: anyone here watch The Irishman?

Bryan Thompson on this site has had one of his Camrys used as a back up on 'Stranger things and he's on the other side of the country to the filming I think. There are some great articles on picking the Tercel 4wd for Breaking Bad. A lot of consideration for the character. https://www.motor1.com/new...

Re: 84 tercel hatch.

I think everything except the rear end, rear seat and transmission is the same. glass is the same except for the obvious parts because of transmission tunnel. the front grill will fit but looks different.

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

A flush with some cheaper oil and then replacement with a good Synthetic Redline like oil (GL-4 I believe) makes a huge difference! I guess its a manual because you said SR5 model but is it an auto. Make sure that the car is in 2wd and not 4wd on the road or the transmission will bind and cause perm...

Re: Tercel 4wd on Autoweek

yeah he gets a couple of things wrong about the inclometer. we had them in Aus til 1988 but I think they stopped them in the USA after '85 although it seems it was an option after that. The landcruiser one actually has an altimeter on it rather than a 4wd indicator but still it has an icon of a terc...

Re: Tercel 4wd on Autoweek

Ha, I think most people know how much these are worth before. The author is an aficionado of our cars and has detailed quite a few here http://www.murileemartin.com/Junkyard/J ... oyota.html and never found an inclometer. So I guess he deserves to be excited about finding one.
