Re: Racecar: ITA AE86 with provenance(history)

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.

Found the problem a few days later when pulling apart that the top shock mounts were loose, (cant remember why now, but they had been out and put back in by someone else) The harder you braked the wor...

Re: She won't start (fuel related)

Does the FX-16 have a resistor pack for the injectors? If they do, there will be a finned silver square resistor box with Toyo water-proof plug (yellow/green). People commonly forget to hook this back up.

Re: She won't start (fuel related)

If you have the FSM, they're are a bunch of flow-charts and diag practices for the Injectors. Measure resistance, engage the injectors and make sure they pulse, etc. etc.

I always figured if you could source those Bi-metallic switch valves, they'd be REAL fun to properly torque on lol. Probably would have to use crow's feet torque extensions.

Lol, you should get them.

Or B., Purchase re-man calipers from a site that has poor quality control (Rockauto,...

Yes, 100% watch those vacuum nipples! Actually, in the pic, it's broken lol.

I'd trade mine too, but I'm finally close to driving mine. Sorry man.

You could always have someone weld two bends on the EGR pipe..

I'll buy it off ya if you find one though.

USDM outlets have a 90 degree bend for the pipe flange. Yours looks like it goes straight up, so not what you need.
