Re: Possible head gasket failure?

your head gasket is likely fine. if you suffer no coolant loss, there is no indication of a compromised head gasket from either compression or the spark plugs. looks like the front plug is getting more oil, it has an oil residue on the outter edge, and the white is burnt oil choke build up. the oth...

Possible head gasket failure?

I have an 84 tercel with the 3a engine and 225k miles on it. Just got back with it after a 3,000 mile road trip. Pulled the plugs to check compression and just get a good idea of what the engine is like internally. The spark plugs were replaced before the trip and after pulling them the number 1 spa...

New Front Springs?

My 84 tercel has 220k and completely dead shocks. I'm hoping to replace at least just the front shocks tomorrow with good KYB Excel Gs. I also want to do springs seeing as this car has run on dead shocks for sometime and i don't think the springs appreciated that. Napa auto has front springs listed ...

Re: Milling head and deck change cam timing?

change in timing would be about the same, but I have not seen it written down. I suppose one could calculate it based on the sprocket dia. most people just live with what they get. I have not seen different thickness gaskets available for the 3a or 4ac engines, unless it is some kind of special ord...

Re: Best tires for the money?

Thanks Petros, I'm not a BMW driver wanna be at all lol, There fun to drive but way too much of a money pit. My goal is to crush BMWs with the crappiest car I can find. In any case, I wasn't trying to compare handling, just showing more or less that tire is pretty damn good. and film making isn't to...

Re: Delta 260 or 272 regrind?

I agree on that mt swap. Also if you ever have to do a head gasket soon you can clean up the head casting, polish the exhaust, and port match the intake and maybe some slightly over size valves while your in there. nothing too crazy like .1-.2 mm larger tops. all this except the valves are free. i h...

Re: Delta 260 or 272 regrind?

the 272 is gonna give you more power but its gonna make that power higher in the rev range. which depending on how you drive may or not help you. The 260 is gonna help and give you more torque down low but probably won't pull as good near the end. For me living in Los angeles with crazy drivers goin...
