Throwout bearing problems

I have had a noisey throwout bearing since I bought my corolla. Its a 1985 sr5 converted to gts still with an sr5 bellhousing. I got the spec clutch stage 1 kit for a gts since I was under the impression that it should work. The clutch disc and pressure plate are fine but the throwout bearing is dif...

Can't find the service connector to set ignition timing

I was going to try and set my ignition timing earlier and could not find to service plug. I bought the car with the 4age swap already done (sr5 to gts) and can't get ahold of the guy I bought it from. I checked throughout the entire engine bay and couldn't find anything that looks like the service c...

Re: What did you do to your car today?

Had my buddy weld up the intermediate shaft to my steering column to get rid of the play in my steering. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/twinturbo555/IMAG0172_zps55e5ec9d.jpg Not pretty but it worked, and I finally got to see how my car handles with all the new suspension bits.

Re: What did you do to your car today?

I finally gave my inner fender a little sledgehammer massage to see how much steering angle I have after installing the t3 tie rod ends and steering arms. Not too bad but I may be going for more angle after I get a lil more hp. Here's some before and after. It doesn't look like too much in the pics ...

Also put hps pads in the rear and replaced the front brake hoses with steel braided hose. when I went to replace the rear hoses I found both sides stripped out...

Re: 2013 Frs Las Vegas

The price isn't set in stone so I am open to offers. Also the rear bumper isn't that bad, just needs to be sanded down and repainted. I might even get it done before selling if it doesn't go soon. As for posting on this forum, I have seen a lot of different types of cars posted here. Not just ae86's...
