Re: Tie rods and battery questitons

1. It is a welded on bracket. There are spot welds that hold it to the engine bay. So you could find another one from another 80's toyota and weld it into your car. You would drill out the spot welds from the donar car and then weld it where the spot welds were. Just another option. 2. Not sure what...

Re: WTB Zenki Driver Side Fender AE86

Thanks for the help. I tried looking on that site and there was nothing for the AE86 front fenders.

If anyone has one let me know. I dont need a perfectly good fender. Just no rust and no major dents (car was hit).

If you suspect a side to side brake imbalance always check the non-working side, the side that it veers away from. Just to make sure I got this correct in my head. If i car turns to the left under braking, then I need to check the passenger side? Yes, I can lock the brakes in straight line hard bra...

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

Straight line braking only causes the steering wheel to turn to the left slightly. No wheels lock under braking in a straight line. Front wheels are at -3.5 camber and rear is around 0. I will try messing with rear strut settings. If I remember correctly, they were set to pretty stiff already but no...

Re: Ignition timing problem

Try not to get focused on the direction. Your not going to hurt anything if it doesnt run. Just turn it until it runs. You can use your ear to determine where the engine wants to be. Dont rely on the dimple under the oil cap. You need to take the cam cover off and verify the marks on the cam gears a...

If the car is not overheating, compression test is good, and it is still smoking. Then there is something else wrong. It could be many things (worn out piston rings, old valve seals, etc). I can speculate all day about it but I would perform a compression test first before moving further. If it look...

Re: I think I broke my AE86

First do a compression test to verify that it is the head gasket before you start taking things apart... For a bad head gasket you will see the PSI on the cylinders be something like the following Cy1: 170psi Cy2: 140psi Cy3: 80psi Cy4: 140psi On a good head gasket it would look like this: Cy1: 170p...

When shopping for a AE86 manual rack online, what information should you provide? Didnt manual racks sometimes come on 87 GTS/SR5 Models and thats it? When I use that info on RockAuto, I see FX16 FWD racks that are manual.. Does anyone know if those are compatable?
