Hahaha...that was me...I was the fat kid jumping on my axle.

If it hasn't been mentioned already, you can use the rear shocks for a 1980 Thunderbird, press out the bottom bushing, and swap in the Tercel stock bushing.

Re: Throttle sticking

Is your car A/C equipped? I think the part you're talking about ais the A/C actuator. Look at page AC-17 in the FSM. It bolts up kinda under the EGR and has a little ribbed diaphragm and the paddles on it hit the throttle positioner right? That ribbed diaphragm is torn on both of mine. I rebuilt the...

3AC California Vacuum Diagram?

Does anyone have a 3AC California emissions vacuum routing diagram?

I've searched the forum but can't seem to find one.

Re: No Crank at Ignition Lock but Runs With a Push Start

Thanks for confirming. I knew there was no compression...just didn't think it would be so easy to turn.

Re: No Crank at Ignition Lock but Runs With a Push Start

So I'm getting ready to do the timing belt on this thing and I noticed it was low on oil. I filled it up and saw it dripping out of the drain plug. The previous owner cut a piece of cardboard for the drain plug gasket. While I was under there I turned the crank pulley by hand pretty easily...the bel...

Re: Sound comes out from a electric relay

That button is on all of the T4WDs as far as I know...it's on all of mine anyway. I forget it sometimes too.

Re: Sound comes out from a electric relay

Glad to hear its better, but will it happen again? Is there a problem with your ignition switch that will not allow it to turn off fully, or you just forgot to do so? I forget my lights turned on a lot. I want to add a buzzer or something.

Is your battery fully charged with clean contacts and good clean grounds?

Re: '87 2WD wagon added to wrecking yard in Phoenix, AZ on 10/15/2019

Yea, I tried to get a set of 87 lights from a row52 puller...actually I think it was just the one light, plus a few other things. The guy pulled them all and bought them before telling me the prices then he wanted an exorbitant fee and shipping for it all. I told him it was unreasonable and to see w...

Re: No Crank at Ignition Lock but Runs With a Push Start

No idea how old it is. The sticker on the cover says it was changed 120k ago but there was something written in sharpie on the radiator support bar across the front that says something about the timing belt...it's worn off now. On another note, I pulled the passenger lock cylinder and got two keys m...

Re: Usable Parts from an Automatic?

Thanks all. I figured the engines were the same but I just wanted to double check before I started pulling stuff I can't use. It's supposed to be cold and rainy so I'm trying to maximize my time on it.

Usable Parts from an Automatic?

Hello all,

I'm going to be stripping an 1984 automatic 4WD this weekend. I'm going to basically be taking everything that I can get in an afternoon.

All of my cars are manuals so I'm curious what will translate...the engines are the same right? So I could take the whole head?
