Re: 2nd Gen 4A-FE Swap

McMasterCarr will almost certainly have the needed bolt. Just need to find out the thread pitch of the current cam bolt, add the depth of the pulley, and add to cart.

Re: 2nd Gen 4A-FE Swap

I managed to pickup both a spare cam bolt and distributor to start building the cam driven distributor setup. What I'll be doing is welding a rod onto the spare cam bolt and adding a couple grooves for the drive dear to grab, and same for the spare distributor. These are the gears I mentioned. Thes...

Re: 2nd Gen 4A-FE Swap

1. Check parts.toyota.com to see if they stock a replacement bolt for the engine (put in the year, make, model that the engine came from).

2. McMasterCarr - Find the size and thread pitch for the bolt and you'll almost undoubtedly find a replacement here. Same with the key.

Re: 2nd Gen 4A-FE Swap

I wouldn't worry about the exhaust so long as you put a heat shield on the distributor and/or the exhaust. The 4AGE's distributor sits in about the same position, the 2JZGE sits even closer to the exhaust runners, same with the 7M motor. In Saab 900 Turbos the distributor sits directly above the tur...

Re: Tercel Holley EFI?

That would be user Gasoline Fumes with Hornbeam, last time he posted was in 2011. I had actually started down that route, before switching to a 7AGE swap, having come across a mint Suzuki Swift in a junkyard (seriously, low mileage, clean interior, no rust, no idea why it was there) and pulled the e...

Re: Spoilt for engine choice! (4afe vs 4age vs 7afe vs 7age frankenmotor)

7age frankenmotor. (late 7a block with the bigport twinky head) all the cubes, the easy to get parts. aaaand also the access to ITB's or bike carbs etc. I would be happy with 130HP final wheel power. Im ok with spending some cash on it over the next 6-8 months to build the right combo, dont mind pi...

Don't know about the 3A, but if I remember correctly SirFoxx has one of the Holley EFI kits on his 7AGE car.

Re: Texas T4WD 7AGE Project

Been a minute, not a lot to report that pretty much everyone here wouldn't find par for the course. Mostly little things like buying parts, replacing small stuff, and working on other projects. On the one hand it's nice to have other vehicles so I'm in no rush to work on the Tercel, on the other I'd...

Re: The Definitive List of Ways to Lift a Tercel 4wd

Any before/after photos Simon? Did you make the spacers for the struts and springs or buy them?

Correct me if I'm wrong, wouldn't this effectively give another 1.5" of lift (1" up for the suspension, 1/2" up for the body due to crossmember drop)?

Re: The Definitive List of Ways to Lift a Tercel 4wd

Noah did an update in December last year, at the 4 year anniversary of the lift, and said he's put about 60k miles on it with the lift with no CV issues and on 27" tires.

Re: Transmission and differential drain plugs

the longer one actually holds part of the shift linkage in place, DO NOT REMOVE IT, when changing the oil So that's what it's for! My trans is out right now as I'm replacing all the seals, clutch, plugs, etc. while I'm doing the 7AGE swap and removed all the 24mm plugs one at a time to see which co...

Re: Transmission and differential drain plugs

Nice find and suggestions! Thanks! There are two 24mm on the diff, two 24mm on the trans as drains, and either three or four 24mm on the sides of the trans as fill or other checks. I say "three or four" on the sides of the trans because there is on on top of the trans that holds down a spring (anyo...

Transmission and differential drain plugs

The 24mm low profile drain plugs are known to be easily marred/stripped when attempting to remove, later model Toyotas use the same plug threads only in an internal hex (allen) plug. These are the Toyota part numbers for longer magnetic plugs for drains and shorter non-magnetic plugs for side/fill. ...
