It's amazing how far LED technology has come in the past 10 years. Solar too.

I went to the junkyard today. They had several D21s there and on the way in I spotted a rear slider window complete...

Probably like a quart or two. Maybe less if you're just topping off the fluid that came out during the repair. Once it's all put back together I'd fill the reservoir then have somebody start the...

Check your power and ground on the control side of the relay. The positive side should be hot at all times and the ground is activated by the ECU to turn the pump on. It should be grounded any time...

Mine seems to like the $3 bando belts you can buy on rockauto. No idea why but I'm not complaining. I don't drive it every day and they're cheap enough I can just keep another one behind the seat. ...

2AZ-FE engine by chance? I believe those had a problem where the rear head bolts would strip out the threads in the block, causing it to blow the head gasket and requiring a set of inserts to...

Once a year is probably good for me. I use synthetic oil in both my vehicles and change it every 5K in my daily. I don't drive the truck enough to hit 5K in a year so I change it once a year.

Yep, it'll have the molded headlights instead of the regular square ones. Another good way to tell is by the 10th digit of the VIN. K is 1989, L is 1990.

No need to take the wheel off or lift the truck up. It comes out through the top pretty easily. You might want to move the PS pump off to the side if it's in your way. It's also not a bad time to...

DIY vaccum leak machine

This is actually something I've wanted to make for a while. I idle a bit high and am beginning to suspect I have a vacuum leak somewhere. I'm not dropping $500+ on an automotive smoke machine and I...

Nice to see that we have turned this spam thread into something constructive...

I like to go camping and fix/diagnose cars, hopefully not at the same time.

You might look into a set of hub-centric rings. Sometimes tire stores will sell them. Another thing to consider is that most toyotas use mag-style lugs while our D21s have acorn-style, so you might...

Replaced the bulb behind the HVAC panel. I even managed to release all the little plastic clips without breaking any of them. Then used it for truck things.

Don't remind me. I probably have half a dozen NAPA buckets by now. Maybe I will attempt to replace that bulb tomorrow if I have time. Glad to hear it's back on the road.

That makes sense. I figured it has to positive-side switched otherwise the starter would run constantly if it were bypassed. Most of the other relays are ground side switched i believe.

I believe the clutch switch completes the ground for the starter relay, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Picked up some 3M auto glass sealant for the rear window once I get around to that. Stuff's...

Carb is brand new. Zenith 12522 if that's of any benefit. The original one has long since gone out of production.

Any carburetor wizards on here?

This isn't at all related to what we generally talk about on here but I thought I'd ask. Basically at work we have a really old single-cylinder engine. For reference, Eisenhower was in his first...

I suppose I should offer to lend a hand as well. I am roughly equidistant from the both of you. For some reason I reason I suspect the solenoid is junk on both of them. Just a gut feeling.
