Re: Longer wheel studs

If you search Ebay for "toyota wheel studs" there are a fair amount that come up.

Re: Front engine oil leak

I had an oil leak in the front of my motor, turned out to be the gasket between oil pump and block. A few hours and a little swearing at the oil pan and it was all fixed. I'd replace the front main seal if you're gonna have the oil pump out, they're cheap enough.

Re: 85 4 wd CA smog problem

Back off the base timing to stock if it's not... If it is, put it at 3°... It'll run like shit, but advanced timing is another cause of nOX.

Re: Thread on Lifting

Another problem with lifting a strut suspension like ours is the extra stress on the sway bar and lower control arms.

Re: help, more hp for an automatic

I haven't driven a stock Tercel, but I've got a Weber in mine and it'll hit 60 before the end of on ramps... It's no race car, but I bet she'll hit 60 in 13 seconds or so... Driving around town is fantastic on just the primaries, the secondaries don't do much besides make lots of noise and waste gas.

Re: 4A-GE

You're gonna need a complete harness and ECU from the donor, fuel system parts would be a good pull too (pump, pickup, etc)... You'll probably have to flare the stock Tercel hard lines and attach fuel injection rated hose to go to the rail and pressure side of the pump. I think you need a different ...

Re: changing headlights to round (h6024) headlights?

Something that would be totally awesome (and unique) would be a set of Hella projectors: http://www.rallylights.com/Hella_90mm_Halogen_and_Xenon_HID_Headlamp_Modules.aspx I put together a custom setup in my Celica and they're *amazing* in terms of light output and beam control. Plus they fit fairly ...

Re: Soon to be 4WD Tercel owner.

Finally got the oil leak fixed, and she's getting a new radiator this weekend (The one in there is totally sketchtastic), I also redid the Hella driving light brackets (I had them just bolted to the grill mounts...) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/Teranfirbt/09272009006.jpg http://img.photobu...

Re: Newb looking for a bit of info on 3A scv

Have you replaced the fuel filter? There's also a plastic screen in the tank itself that might be plugged.

Re: front dif fluid?

According to the handy factory service manual that I downloaded from the home page, the front diff in an auto Tercel is separate from the transmission and uses plain ol 80-90W.

Re: Newb looking for a bit of info on 3A scv

The steel tube has O-ring seals on each end, and they go out rather frequently from what I've been told... You'll want to replace them before it goes back together if you haven't... As far as the holes go, you should be able to push the upper housing onto the tube and the tube into the lower housing...

Damn, if you were closer to the Corvallis/Albany area I'd be down for helping, but Jacksonville is a bit far...
If you have questions about EFI I can probably help though, I've got Megasquirt on my Celica and a fairly good knowledge of Toyota EFI.

Re: One Man Found The T4WD Of His Youth

That's awesome... Sadly the car of my youth (66' Mustang coupe) can never be recovered, it was sent off to the scrap yard when it was stolen, used in a robbery, and then dumped in a ditch. What's funny is my current Tercel is the exact same color and trim level a couple friends of mine grew up in, i...
