Re: Leaky front end

If anyone is interested in making a batch of seal driving tools, I'd be willing to purchase one. I repalced my seal twice and have had continual leaks. I feel like I am definitely driving it in deeper than .3 inches.

Re: Squealing belt info.

Thank you Mark! I recently replaced my alternator with a cheap eBay 60 amp alternator and my belt has recently started squeaking. When I was changing the oil, I noticed both belts were pretty tight. I think I will drive my wagon to work tomorrow and check the battery voltage after work. Thanks again...

Re: Some parts for sale.

We had a pretty bad storm yesterday and both post offices within 10 miles each way from me is without power. I will not be able to get you a shipping quote today. I apologise. I will get one for you ASAP.
Thank you for understanding.

Re: Coolant leak?

Could always wait until it cools down and use a rental pressure tester from the parts store. I could smell coolant after my engine rebuild a few weeks ago. I was a little nervous because I couldn't find anything and it was not dropping very quickly from the overflow tank. The one I rented from AutoZ...

Re: 1981 Tercel Part Desperately Needed

I have been using the CARDONE 31741 on my Tercel for about 4 months with no issues.
Picked it up from Rockauto for $150ish.

Need advice on whether or not to replace carrier bearing before trip - with a video

Hey everyone, I did a little bit of digging through this website on carrier bearing replacement, unfortunately most of the links are down since the server move. My car is set to take me on a road trip approximately 3,000 miles, but very possibly more, on Monday morning. Now that my exhaust is finall...

Have you called your Toyota dealership? I have everything but the boot on order though my local dealership because it's NLA.

Re: Fresh Weber and head replacement - oil weaping from exhaust?

Well, it seems my previous post did not go through. But hopefully this will be the last time I ever have to post into this specific thread. I did my break-in oil change at around 300 miles. I also retorqued the head. I cut the oil filter apart (poorly, I'll admit) and I did not find any metal partic...

Re: help, please! issues with my new (to me) FWD ‘88 EZ

One thing to note. if you get the tires replaced by the shop you're currently dealing with, the tires should be balanced after they're installed on the wheel. That's standard for a tire replacement. So if the problem persists, I would rule out improperly balanced tires. Old tires, especially worn ou...

Re: Fresh Weber and head replacement - oil weaping from exhaust?

Thank you so much! I will do this tomorrow and hope for the best!

Edit: worked perfectly! I won't lie, it's not as pretty of a job as I would like, but it's not leaking!
Now I just have to change out the CV shaft seals and it should be leak free!
Thanks again everyone!

Re: Fresh Weber and head replacement - oil weaping from exhaust?

Dound the leak! Unfortunately it's not the pan bolts... My pan must have been rusted a little thin and when I cleaned it up, it poked a hole in it. Think I could get away with cleaning it up and coating a thick layer of RTV or QBond or something of the like? Would really hate to pull the engine agai...

Re: Time for a roof rack.

The roof rack on mine is the rain gutter mounts that were off of an old van. They can be removed pretty easily by just spinning off the four end caps and lifting the entire thing off as a whole. Just an option if you have difficulties finding any bars that fit the car. The basket is rated for 250lbs...

Re: Fresh Weber and head replacement - oil weaping from exhaust?

Well guys, yesterday was the big day. I finally got it all buttoned up, filled up with fluids and it fired right up! (After leaving the dizzy unhooked for 1 minute-ish to cycle some oil around) I took it for a 35ish mile test drive. It seems to run great, has a decently quick oil leak around the pas...
