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.
