Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.

Weird indeed. Seems as if the oil pressure sensor is being used as a switch for the fuel pump. If the engine loses oil pressure, it'll cut the fuel. Don't know why they ran the choke wire like that either. There is a powered wire to the left of the carb somewhere in the harness.

the 3au came into this country as a Japanese crate engine, everything bolts up the same. I think those came with the duel Japanese SU carbs as well. would be cool to have that set up on a USDM Tercel. not exactly legal per federal standards here, but on a car this old in most states it would not make any difference.
