Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

Re: Tercel 4WD vs Civic 4WD :: A side view comparison.

I'll have to find the scan, but I have at least two magazine articles comparing 80's 4WD econoboxes, it was a REALLY interesting read as I recall.

Re: Tercel 4WD vs Civic 4WD :: A side view comparison.

While I think the Civic has more tidy proportions overall and is a little more cohesive, the Toyota has styling cues that are more technical to design/execute. The scalloped door skins under the door handles, the contour of the wheel arches. Clearly the asymmetrical tailgate/reverse light makes the ...

Re: Question On Timing Belt Kits...

I'd vote Gates over Dayco, but only because they manufacture quality performance parts as well.

Re: AMC Dealers 1985 comparison test. Eagle vs. Tercel

While the AMC has gone the way of the dinasaur, there appears to be an active group of folks similar to us still driving the Subarus. Chris There sure is! I'm not sure what the sales numbers were for the Tercel vs. Subarus of a similar vintage, but between the USMB and a handful of Facebook pages, ...

WTB: Blue Rear Seatback Release Knobs

Like the title states, I'm wondering if anyone has a pair of dark blue rear seatback release knobs and their little upholstery trim rings. Name your price, thanks!

Re: If You Want To Save America And The World:

I'm convinced that the two-party system is what's really wrong with America. We are such a diverse nation, all of us immigrants, that two buckets of ideology cannot hope to contain the full breadth of ideas and beliefs of our population. As the first country to dedicate lands for a national park, I'...

Re: Cruise control unit

In for price as well. I'm very interested if this was a known-working part when it was removed.

Yes, the channel that clamps onto the lower edge of the glass fatigued at both the mounting points and broke. Passenger's side looks ok.

WTB: Driver's Side Window-Glass Channel

As I tore into my front doors, expecting to find stripped teeth on the window regulators, I was greeted with this scene: http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww64/soobcrazy/Mobile%20Uploads/20160518_181354_zpssvvgecce.jpg http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww64/soobcrazy/Mobile%20Uploads/20160518_1813...

Re: JDM Sprinter Carib RHD for sale in Texas only 41,000 kms!

Having driven RHD, it's really not that hard to get used to, although I did find myself staring out the driver's window when I meant to look in the rearview mirror... The most difficult thing will be making LH turns across traffic (like at a four way intersection), passing another car on a two-lane ...

Re: Having followed recent gear oil post

I would hesitate to use any oil rated for "Limited Slip". This means it has extra friction modifiers that will increase wear on your syncros.
