Re: Vacuum gauge rapid oscilation

No. Your advice had a critical point. Engine has a mild tickling sound. It is mentioned that tickling sound comes from either by valves or by contacts. Perhaps valves may have a problem.

Re: Vacuum gauge rapid oscilation

Yes when RPM exceeds vibrating range drops to 18-16 range.

Problem is If the valve guides are worn, compression should be dropped. Isnt it?

Re: Clutch alignment tool

I have got made a Input shaft like thing with wood from a lathe worker.

I brought the clutch plate to him with the inner diameter measurement of the bearing. (Also a piece of wood)

I think it could have been better if made from iron.

Open oil gallery plug

My car is a Toyota Tercel 1987 DX Wagon with 3A engine.

I have noticed a open oil gallery plug at the rear aspect (covered by the bell housing) of the engine block.

There is a small oil leak in the engine.

Could it be the cause?

Should I add a plug to it?

There is a interconnection in between the shafts that is hidden in between the shafts. My guess was due to ...

Re: Middle fork shift shaft doesnt move.

Problem is that it moves few milimeters. That is not enough for even to move the fork. Those gears were working before I disassemble it.

Thank you again.

I have a simple butane torch. Would that enough if I heat with it?
