[Hawaii] WTB: 4AC Engine

Greetings, I know this might be a long shot, but after asking in local forums and CL, I'm hoping that the hawaii people on here will know of/have a 4AC motor for sale. Looking for a 4AC engine (dont need the trans) for my AE86, locally. Must have been running good when pulled. Just need something to...

Re: Help ID why car (4AC) wont start (Video included)

The 4AC is an economy motor, and has no real power, but for a novice ... rebuilding a 4AC would be very educational, and it will not break the bank in the process. I would not bother with that crank though. Get a used one that is in good sh...

Re: Help ID why car (4AC) wont start (Video included)

It the battery is dead then jumping it might not work. You can try holding the other car at 4-5k RPM and crank the corolla, but the easiest thing to do is just take the battery from what ever car you are using to jump it with an stick it in the corolla to see if it turns over. Ok ill try use the ba...
