Re: Help with alignment after manual rack.

Eh, T3 and their Wal-Mart esque have been annoying me lately. The site was down the whole day and I couldn't even look em up!

I ended up combing through Oreily's and found an inner and outer pair that should work. I'll post it up later.

Help with alignment after manual rack.

So I'm sure you guys know I did a manual rack swap from a AW11 MR2. I got Megan AE86 inner rods (Power Steering) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Megan-Fit-Toyota-AE86-Tie-Rods-power-steering/272021321349?epid=1556627197&hash=item3f55bbf685:g:p18AAOSwAHtaTaPR&vxp=mtr and these outer tie rods: https:...

Re: Ignition timing problem

Shop found that the fuel pipe that delivers to the fuel filter was bent.

Also that the fuel was old and brown and nasty.

I forgot it was over a year old lol. But they set the timing again. Seems like it's running alright now.

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Just keep an eye on it..

For the rust proofing, I always use POR-15. No priming or sanding needed, and when it dries it's like steel! Just make sure you wear protection for skin and inhalation.

Re: Pic request

Thanks MisterJerk, On my GT-S the resistor pack isn't permanently mounted. It screws onto the bracket, and the bracket bolts to a chassis thread. I'm just not sure where lol. I have a new fuel filter with bracket I want to throw on, but I wanted to wait because I vaguely remember that the resistor p...

You know you can repair your old one. Dori-Kaze has instructions, it's really easy.

Re: My differential exploded...

Why did your diff break like that in the first place? This is not a common occurrence..

They still sell third members, a new one just sold on Egay about 1 or 2 weeks ago. I think someone is still making them or they are NOS. I've seen them pop up every once in awhile.

Hey oldeskewl,

I have another odd request. Is the A/C idler tension bracket still bolted on? If not, did it come with the purchase?

I have been desperately trying to find a factory manual rack AE88/86 with the tensioner bracket in place.
