Finally working on Terc2

Post by NWMO » Sat Jul 25, 2020 9:28 pm

Hey all,

I’m finally getting around to working on my second Tercel. The Rusty Frog developed a t/o bearing noise and needs a look. I decided to make some gains on Terc2 first. Seems to be running reasonably well, but has a fuel delivery issue. Seems to do ok pulling from a bottle, but runs dry pulling from tank. New filter first (hopefully that solves it) and then start checking fuel line or intake restriction. It has some other typical issues as well, so we will see.

I put my 14s on Terc2 and the stock wheels/tires back on the Rusty Frog. I had forgotten the size difference being this extreme. Trying to have them both available gor the Midwest Tercel Meet & Greet in just under 3 mos.

He said "t/o bearing," which means throwout bearing.

Hey all,

Dropped the fuel tank on Terc2 today trying to find the fuel restriction problem. Got the tank out of the way and got a lot of rust chunks out. Very rusty, needing to replace the lines in as well as the sending unit. Hooked directly to a fuel can, have at least one leak sucking air, may have to replace the fuel line.
