You should be able to remove the whole thing (speedo drive in the trans and the 90* elbow) as a unit after removing the bolt that holds it in place. Shouldn't be a big deal... (I did it a bunch of times in the car to get my cable to align right to my Camry)

The 90* coupler is normally where the problem happens.

A small update,

My oem seat belt assmble was put in by the dealer ( charge me 65 bucks) total came out to 300. 235 for the part, 65 for labor. In the process they broke my interior trim, but they replaced that for free so its way newer on one side of the car.

As for the speedocable, its impossible to remove that gear which is housed inside the transmission. so for now im leaving it.

The most recent problem is battery light came on, comes on and off. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I think it could be the alternator going out, low battery, or some wiring issue. If so does anyone know what brand of alternator fits the 185 because the dealer quoted me 728 bucks for the whole assembly and I was like WTF.

I just got my OEM alternator rebuilt rather than getting a new one or an aftermarket one... Works like a charm and costed me only 100$

ok another small update,

1) weird noise right hand side of car ( possibly alternator) but will be replaceing the whole thing next week
2) my front wiper washer hose, part of it is missing so nothing comes out, the pump works.
3) my door lights and the light inside the car (one behind the sunroof) does not turn on when the door is open, but when when the trunk is open all the light works. really bugging me
4) Is there a diagram for the rear disfrost as in how its hooked up etc? my rear button has nothing inside for some reason.

5) ordered an oem antenna, also will be put in next week.

Goal by end of april, save money and fix speedocable, replace clutch, and synchros.

Ok alittle update, the alternator is dead for sure, so I took 2 hours to take it out this week. The bgb guide was not that clear on the steps in regards to loosening the idler pulley bolt + the adjustment bolt.

anyways here is a picture of what those look like in my car.

Image

the bolt on the bottom is the ider pulley
and the other one is the adjustment. Note, the adjustment bolt will slide to the right as you loosen it. After being fully loosen, the whole pulley will slight forward.

Heres the steps I took.

1) undo all wiring
2) loosen the top mounting bolt then lower bolt.
3) loosen idler pulley bolt half way
4) loosen the adjustment bolt until you feel it become tighter, then loosen more of the idler pulley. ( and repeat until next step)
5) the adjustment bolt will slide out of the mount as you continue to loosen( to the right)
6) once the adjustment bolt is fully out, the pulley will spring forward, so watch for your head or eyes, easing the tension of belt.
7) after remove the top and bottom bolt and remove the whole alternator.

here's another picture of the other side, I already have to top and bottom bolt off.

on number 3 the door switches like to break. I just went by the junkyard and grabbed a handful from various early 90s toyotas. Had about 6 of them. Found 2 that worked. They're very easy to remove with just one nut and a wire clip. Problem solved.

I've been having trouble getting the bolt for the idler pulley to go back in and add tension to the belt. When I go to reverse the tension pulley's bolt the head just comes off the bolt. Am i doing something wrong?

Car looks good, Pete.

I see you've shitcanned your original concept of keeping her 100% bone stock.
Can't blame you. Why not take advantage of newer technology when and where you can?

My car has also had issues with its speedometer.. I am hoping to have it looked at in spring but I will be saving this thread for the pictures posted with part #'s etc :D

Hopefully mine is in a position to be repaired/replaced.. It has been acting up for a few years on and off now :shrug:

Someone hit me while I was at my GFs house a week or so ago, Im still crying. :cry: So if anyone got a spare fender, please let me know :roll:

Image

heres the new boot
Image

OH yeah my rotor and front pads are in, just waiting for the rears.

Image
Image

Oh yeah was getting oil changed and took this pic not too long ago..
Image

Anyways besides that, I ordered some GTS GC, the front spring is rated at 350lb and rear at 250lb, Im gonna see if I can build my coils using them and hopefully it will give me a firmer then stock ride but not too much. The B&G lowered springs I have now feels kinda soft.
