Re: 1985 Tercel -make offer

I'm assuming this car is in California? I can't quite make out the state on the license plate.

Re: Anyone else have a fuel gauge that goes down halfway almost instantly?

New aftermarket sending units are available o eBay. They’re around $60-$70 shipped. I have one in my 86 but I haven’t tested it yet unfortunately.

This is always an option if you’re unable to clean or repair your current unit.

Re: 4WD front Differential Compatible with FWD?

I shipped a 4.1 ratio front diff to someone on here to test in an auto trans and he said it fits. So I’d imagine the same applies this way.

That being said, if you have the rest of the 4wd trans. Don’t scrap it! The internals are worth saving.

Re: Tercel 4wd Transmission Input shaft gears are broken...

To my knowledge, all these parts are NLA. I had a transmission shop look up part input gears and synchros for me in the past with no luck.

I might have a core I could rip apart. Where are you locAted?

Re: after many years, I'm finally back in the T4 game

Congrats! I love my rusty 84 for the same reason. The patina is awesome!

Is it missing the rear glass? I can’t really tell. If so, I have a spare I can send for the cost of shipping.

Re: Rusty 88 tercel value?

I paid $800 for my 84 Sr5 and the body is absolutely toast.
I’ll post a picture at some point when I get on a computer with pictures of it.

Re: MTNF playtime

Looks like a blast! Before the Meet and Greet I will be taking some trails in the upper peninsula of Michigan. It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t spend a few days driving before the Meet!

Re: Weber Carb spitting gas from barrels

I have used webers on a few cars. They’re a bit tricky to get tuned if you’re not used to these style carbs. I agree with others on timing. I had my cam off 180 and it did similar things. Would crank and crank but wouldn’t run. It backfired and gas came out of the top of the carb like yours. It’s po...

I can’t wait, thanks for your hard work. I sent some $$ this week to help with the campground, etc. Do you think folks would want frog legs again? To bad somebody couldn’t come up with Rocky Mountain oysters, but only a few of us would likely eat them. Chris I don't think anyone will complain! I kn...
