Wanted: several spare parts

Post by Grendle »

*Edit - added a couple other items after thinking about it*

So instead of trading my van (although I'd still consider it, just minus a crazy road trip), I bought this guy the other night: viewtopic.php?t=15715, and am planning on flying up to Seattle and road tripping it back to Dallas. While I'm in the northwest, I'm hoping to pick up a few parts if I can get a decent price or trade.
Tradewise, I have a few sets of new Smittybilt rain gutter rack mounts, and any of the spare bits in the pictures.

Things I'd like to take back with me:
- a pinhole free gas tank
- a transmission (doesn't need to be fresh, but not grenaded would be nice.
- parts to add a/c
- a pair of headlights (although i might find some Hella sealed beam conversions that match the opening if that's easier)
- a cleaner red hatch
- an inclinometer
- radio and temperature control trim pieces
- a set of 14" wheels

I know the top two aren't exactly growing on trees, and I'll probably be checking pick'n'pulls on my route down as well, but figured I'd have a better shot at finding parts in the NW than I will in North Texas.

Grendle,

This tank worked great for me, it's only been in a little while.

Grendle,

I messed with one of my old tanks some and replacing it a little later was money well spent.

This tank is no longer being manufactured, so finding a new one is a worthwhile investment.

has anybody tried the T01B version? (ours is the T01A) Looking at Spectra's site (https://ecat.spectrapremium.com/products/TO1B), they appear to have the same dimensions, and that tank is still available. Not the most scientific, but opening each tank in side by side tabs and jumping back and forth, it looks like it should be possible with minimal to no pounding.

If this is the tank for the GTS ae86 with the 4age, which it should be, there are two main issues.

1: the filler neck doesnt havet the collar needed for our body. On our tank, the filler neck unbolts whereas this one doesnt. NWMO got around the issue by cutting the collar in half and rewelding it back on.

2. Where the level sensor goes, theres a fuel dam for the fuel pump that the efi cars use. The float sensor WILL NOT WORK in that spot unless you get in there with something and beat the crap out of it and flatten it down. This is the route I took.

I have some air conditioner parts from several Tercel4wd in my pile of parts. I would be happy to get them out of my garage. I do not know their condition or suitablity to restore them and use them in a car. Where we live in the PNW, it rarely gets hot enough where I want to have an AC, and find them more a chore to have than the rare few times I might want one. besides the demand on the already underpowered engine is not worth the small benefit. That is a very different consideration in the hot places in the country, but not for me.

the shipping costs would be not insignificant, and the time it takes to sort through all my piles of parts. though it is something I have to do anyway, I just never have the time to do it. it is just as well you take them if you want them, otherwise I might just send them to the scrapper (and that would be a shame I think).

As I recall I have at least 2 complete car's worth of A/c stuff, and likely several additional pieces. they came from various parts cars I had, and other parts given to me from other PNW tercel owners for a project. I installed an A/c system for Tercel4wd I was giving to my daughter who lived in Texas, and needed the A/C. so I completely installed a working system from the parts stash. With lots of parts left over. You are welcome to them all if you want them. I am not sure how complete what I have is now, but I am fairly certain there is enough to make one working system, or nearly so.

let me know.

As posted above by NWMO on 1/5/22, it appears that AutoZone might have the T01A fuel tank... they give a price and don't say it's out of stock:

@Petros - that would be great! I am actually flying up to Seattle on the 4th of next month to pick up the car and road trip it home, so if there's an option to pick up the parts that Friday night or Saturday morning, I could just haul them back to Texas. Let me know if that might work and we can pm to coordinate.

The Autozone fuel tank only ships directly to the buyer. I purchased around 9:30 one morning and it was on my doorstep by noon the next day.

I am about an hour north of Seattle. drive on up and spend the night (we have a guest room for you to use), and you can take all of the a/c parts I have with you. we can also give the car a good once over, fix anything that needs fixing, and send you on your way. I have all the tools you might need to do everything from an engine overhaul to brakes/suspension and everything in between. And I Also likely have most of the parts that you might need for your Tercel as well.

I have made that drive from Washington to TX in January, doing it in Feb has its risks of bad weather, but it will be adventure to be sure. you can either drive down to Los Angles and than drive east to avoid major mountains (it is a longer drive, perhaps 5 or 6 hours more road time), or you can do what we did, and rive over the cascades mountains, through eastern OR, than on to UT, over the Washach mountains, than into Co, and over the Rockies, down into Denver and than south to TX. it was a wild ride in Jan, I would advise to bring a warm sleeping bag, snow boots and other cold weather gear in case you get stuck waiting for a snow plow.

let me know, I will must get permission from my wife to spend that weekend playing around with Tercels. she will agree, she just hates surprises with visitors. so I have to let her know way ahead.

Source that it's no longer being made? I picked up a TO1B since I'm doing an EFI conversion and saw reports of the same. Spectra still makes them, but they aren't one that's stocked as much. Had to wait a couple of months to grab one as they were manufactured. Best thing to do is tell RockAuto to notify you when they come in stock.
