WTB/ISO: Working VSV

Post by The Professor » Thu Aug 15, 2019 7:56 am

As we continue to comb through the carb and emissions systems on our Tercel it turns out that our VSV is dead.

Anyone have a working spare lying around?

Thanks!

I have a small supply that I tested and they appear to work. I collect them when I find them in the wrecking yard, accumulated 5 or 6. I finally got around to testing them, 4 were good. all are used, no telling how much longer they will last, but they all look original, so they are 30+ years old.

come by my place some time and you can have one, and you can pick out a spare carb from by box of parts, for my cost.

Petros, when are you free the next several weekends? I can try to make the trip up to you, or you could just toss it in the mail, if that simplifies things.

I have a busted one if you're interested. The lower tab is broken off. I broke it when pulling my head. It was only a few weeks old.

Professor,

Pardon the silly question, but is the VSV the same part referenced as a TVSV in the FSM?

Nope. This was the little solenoid that opens the charcoal canister.

Thanks Prof,

FSM EC-11 and EC-12. Valve open with power, closed with no power.

Headed to the JY tomorrow if all goes as planned, will see what I can find.

Like this (though this one is slightly different than your pic), I assume you are wanting something cheaper?
