Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

Mid-winter update: I drove around in some low-to-mid-30s (*F) temperatures in the Tercel over the last few weeks. The Redline MT-90 still feels great with no grinding in any gear and smooth operation despite the cooler temps. That's great news! I put MT-90 in my DD and not 30 miles later the water ...

Re: MR2 Alternator Upgrade?

I'm also curious if there's anything else you need to do when upgrading the alternator...like to the wiring or whatever?

Re: Manual transmission issues

Fill and drain plugs are 24mm. The 19mm bolt, bottom rear of tranny gets backed out 8 full turns when draining or filling. Type of gear oil is a huge debate...I'm running a cheapo 80w-90 gl5 in one car and it is a little sticky here and there. In my DD, I'm running Redline MT-90 and it feels amazing...

Re: Gauge cluster removal

The speedo cable clip on the back of the cluster has two securing points. One side is a push and the other side is a pull. When you get them right, it comes right off.

Re: Liking the Pathfinder springs

I thought you've had Pathfinder springs on your rig for a while? Did you remove the rear sway bar?

Re: Tie rod question

Inners are the same on all 4wds. I have both power steering and non power steering cars and used the same inners on both.

Re: Cv axle popping out

I'm sure someone who knows more than me will comment soon but I'm pretty sure that one is trash. I'd be really nervous about the internals too. :( I've put in the Cardone brand and while they worked, the splines were too big so Bob Walker helped me shave them down.

Re: If I can manage a suitable repower in the future

Is that a Justy? I just bought an engine stand off a guy with 30 Justys on his compound. Looks like a fun little car. Did you have to swap motors to push those tires?
