Re: the mother load

I do need a rear wiper arm (or advice on how to fix mine - not enough tension to stay flush to the window). I have the same issue. I was thinking about just bending the arm. Anyone have a better idea? Haven't looked at one in awhile but I think there is a spring in there. Could it just be replaced?

any reason you aren't using a new one? I see they are like $20 shipped from rock auto. can't say about the quality.
They are not 4wd mounts.

Re: 3a rebuild to 4a

4ac will bolt up no problem with no modifications, the 4age requires a ton of mods.

Re: 2003 accent, no crank & weird electrical stuff

Every time I have come across what you described here, it was normally the battery terminals needing a good cleaning because they were gunked up, along with the leads to the battery. I had it so bad on my 01 corolla in fact , I had to carry a bottle of battery contact cleaner in the glove box at all...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

If no one here has one for you, I might be able to source one from a junkyard here and ship it to you, given that the distributor is the root of your problem.

Re: New Power Leather Heated Seats, Overhead Console, and Custom Headliner

Jeez. Looks like I have some catching up to do! I have some ideas I need to work out with mine but it won't turn out anything like yours. You've done a fantastic job with all these mods, especially the dog bed! Does the charging system hold up well with the seat warmers running? I want to get a bett...

Re: Need Real-time Help. Car won't start.

From the fuse box under the hood goes a single wire to the positive on the battery. That might have been disconnected, or one of the fuses could have blown?

Re: Familiar with a 22r?

The old timing cover had a crack that was poorly sealed with some type of hardening putty. It was leaking from that covered crack, and the only through bolt on the timing cover had the threads stripped out and was pouring oil out of there too. Drove it around for a few months and the leaks just got ...

Familiar with a 22r?

I'm sure there's a few of you who know your way around a 22r. I just wanted to ask here in hopes of someone who might know a thing or two because I don't want to sign up for another forum. This timing cover has a gap between the head and itself. It lines up perfectly with the bottom of the block. Qu...

Re: ISO: 3A-C engine for 1985 SR5

I was in the same boat awhile back. I spent a ton on trying to save the block. It was able to be bored .40 over to be salvageable, only to find out I couldn't find any .40 pistons. Threw away a lot of money on that block. If it comes down to it. I do have a head I put together that's been sitting on...

Re: Question about lash, or play in drive line on an 85

If I were to make some what of an educated guess, I'd seem to think it would be the motor mounts/trans mount. Seen plenty of blown out mounts in action. When you were to hit the throttle, the engine turns to one side before any movement of the wheels occurred creating that feeling of what you descri...

Re: ISO: "Rain Gutter" roof rack mounts

I scored a set of the thule 300s awhile back from a guy that found them at a junk yard for 40 bucks. Here are some on ebay but you'd have to find the load bars that fit.

Re: WTB: Front Windshield Washer Pump

I'm assuming there are 2 pumps? Let me know so I can look into that. I don't have a wiper assembly in the hatch anymore and mine did work before I replaced the hatch. If there are 2 I'd be happy to give you mine.

Re: Well shit. ..

Haha, oh yeah! I do have a question. I didn't get to change out my sway bar bushings on the sub frame because the bolts are stripped in place. Is there a good chance I'd be able to obtain a sub frame from someone later down the line? Im sure they've been that way for awhile now and won't just pop ou...
