Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

Sounds good. Is there a particular brand and weight of conventional gear lube that you could recommend?

Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

So I have bought the Redline oil for this trans. I don’t know what else to do since they are so many conflicting opinions about hypoid gears and brass synchros being lubricated by the same oil in our transmissions.

I spent the weekend swapping out the flasher relay to a load independent version from superbrightleds.com. I also tore the dash apart and replaced the heater core and installed the under dash A/C components. What a job that was.

Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

I can see how you would get the impression that the younger generation doesn’t appreciate older cars or fixing and maintaining a car. However every week my students mention to me how cool they think my car is and offer to buy it from me. It typically will spark a conversation about what car they are...

Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

Yesterday I took the Tercel in to the local locksmith shop which is owned by a previous helicopter instructor of mine. We re-keyed all the locks to the code found on the passenger side lock, so that everything operates with one key now. Today my friend and I headed over to Xirdneh’s place and picked...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

I am so glad that you have such an appreciation for these 80’s Toyota’s. If I had my way I would probably have a garage full of old Toyota’s too. My wife makes sure that doesn’t happen though.

Thanks Petros. It appears that Toyota no longer has them available so I’ll get ahold of Xirdneh.

Got the cases cleaned up in the parts washer.
Fifth gear has a couple little chips in it so for $45 I’m gonna see if Toyota has one still available. If not it will probably be fine.
