Re: Clutch noise

Sounds more like the pilot bearing. To change either the throw out bearing or pilot bearing is a big job, might as well put it off as long a possible until you can not stand it. usually there is little risk of further damage even if you push it. if the throw out bearing is bad, it could eventally da...

Re: 1985 4x4 Tercel with body damage, good engine/manual transmission $350

if not for parts, that could make a fun swamp whomper, or even better, a Gambler 500 off road racer. Well worth it for the engine and trans along, fairly low miles.

man that is temping, I just do not have the time nor the place to put it.

Re: Accelerator / throttle cable 4age swap

In your experience do toyotas cables of that era have the same connections at the pedal and throttle side? yes, pretty much. they tend to use the same design for many detailed parts such as the throttle cable ends. the end at the throttle plate should match of course, and most of the pedals I have ...

Re: Supercharged Tercel

interesting set up, any idea how much power it might be producing? I am not a fan of superchargers, nor turbo chargers either, for a daily driver. It greatly complicates the engine, usually increases maintenance, breakage, and reduces economy. I would rather get a higher performance naturally aspira...

Re: Accelerator / throttle cable 4age swap

likely the same cable for the RWD Corolla GT-S that uses the 4age engine is what you want (1984-86?). the corolla engine bay is a bit wider and the distance from the throttle pedal to the intake manifold is a little longer, but should be close enough to work. you may have to find a place that can ma...

Re: Larger wheels/tires without a lift

I have 215/60-14" tires without lift, and they barley fit without rubbing. It would rub a bit on the left side front (side where I sit when I am driving) when I hit a large bump so I fixed it by bending up the fender lip a little bit. the 215/70 are not quite as wide. though frankly if it does rub w...

Re: Warn Hubs

Once you figure out what they fit, put them on Ebay, might find someone restoring a bronco or something that can use them.

Re: Front hub assembly for parts / ?

the line bore where the diff mounts is buggered if one of the bearing cap broke, and the other had the shim get distorted. the aluminum housing may have gotten distorted, and it may be able to be be fixed with great effort, but why? it is not like there is a shortage of front diff/bell housings, I t...

Re: Another Movie Sighting...

the blocks may have been a means to get the two cars to collide they way the director wanted to see it. often they use cables, or ramps if they want the car to flip or one land on top of the other. typical Hollywood silliness, it seems that in most of the TV/movie car crashes they either flip, or bu...

Re: '88 & '84 T4WD SR5's added to wrecking yards in NW Washington on 9/30 & 10/2/2019

what a shame, looks like it could have been fixed.

some mechanic likely said it was not worth fixing, and they sold it to PnP for $200. they need a new mechanic.

Re: 4WD selector shaft seal

there will be a part number on the seal from the original supplier. likely you can still buy it without the "toyota" packaging. Any industrial bearing supplier (that usually also sells seals) can take measurements off of it and find a matching replacement. Usually they can just take the part number ...

Re: No-Start and running out of time

FYI, usually fuel down the carb, or starting fluid, will make it run briefly. that would indicate no spark, or the spark is at the wrong time. Too much fuel will flood it, and it will not even sputter. the carb is not difficult to take apart and clean up, just be cautious of the tiny parts. best to ...

Re: Another Movie Sighting...

those cads totaled a pristine 1983 T4wd SR5 just to make a movie! what a shame, Hollywood is such a waste. it was just a minor part in a movie, why could have they not used a Pinto or something, some other POS car that nobody wants? I may have seen the movie (not sure, but it is not the kind of movi...

Re: Front hub assembly for parts / ?

I doubt it has any salvage value, once the diff mount gets buggered up it would be too risky to try and rebuild it and use it. is is essentially scrap metal. the relationship between all the gear teeth, the housing and the internal components is very sensitive and it would require a complete re-mach...
