    88 Alltrac in San Francisco 160k miles, $7000 Overall it looks really solid, the only rusty bits are bolted on which is a nice plus.

    Doors have electrical gremlins

    Unfortunately I can't put the car anywhere that it would be safe to leave it for weeks with the door open. I was able to strip down the old door, not a fun task, and get the harness out. To play it safe I plan to plug it into the car but just have it sitting on the floor in the cabin, and leave...

    Doors have electrical gremlins

    The door came with everything but the door card and mirror, so I just bolted it on and plugged it in. I'm glad I didn't throw out the old door now.

    Doors have electrical gremlins

    Lately I've been having an issue with intermittent parasitic draw, it would be fine for a while and then suddenly be dead over night. Recharge the battery and repeat. I replaced my drivers door after the original was damaged during a failed theft attempt and the mechanisms were quite stiff so I...

    Minor disaster strikes Night Fury!

    Yeah I've been here a while haha. I've owned my RC since 2011. As I understand it if you don't have documentation of the mileage it could be anything. Sellers used to always claim that clearly high mileage engines with no odo had 60-80k km and I doubt that's changed. I don't think I've heard...

    ST185 TWM Or TRD Short Throw Shifter (Or is there a better way?)

    I've heard of people using 7th gen ones but I haven't done it myself.

    Bad transmission in 1989 Corolla All-Trac wagon

    Either way you need to pull the trans, so why not take it out and take it apart and see what's actually broken before buying anything?

    Minor disaster strikes Night Fury!

    Putting in a jumper to disable the fuel pump resistor is pretty common, there's a OEM jumper from certain FWD models that you can use for the "proper" way but what you have shouldn't have gotten that toasty unless it was done incorrectly.

    185 Acting Weird, running rough, no RPM

    It definitely sounds like the ECU, but before waiting on a replacement take it out and open it up. If the caps have leaked it'll be very obvious.

    Radiator for st205

    Which gen body with a 5SFE? A 5th gen or a 6th gen?

    compare 1990 plus mr2 ecu numbers

    If it's just the capacitors that are damaged they are easily replaced by someone with a bit of soldering experience.

    Since we are talking about auctions...

    I think the leather + sunroof + no system 10 + no AC makes this a pretty rare example. Considering it's recently resprayed I'd want to see some underbody pictures though. I don't know what they're talking about with the oil sump though, that's weird.

    I've been considering it if I ever pop my motor. I love the turbo noises but making more power with just 87 octane would be a big improvement. I saw a guy in Australia that I think managed to mate it to the AWD trans for a 1st gen Rav but ran into firewall clearance issues. I'm not sure if we'd...

    Congrats on the purchase, consider me a member of team jealous. I'm a big fan of the 2GR. It's a hoot even in my wifes Rav4 so I can only imagine what it'll be like in that light of a car.

    Greetings from veteran Toyota guy, All-Trac newbie

    Wow, those are rare. I've seen a couple people with the roof spoiler but I don't think I've ever seen photos of the rear window louvers installed before

    Greetings from veteran Toyota guy, All-Trac newbie

    You could do what some Subie guys do and put an oil cooler up top under the hood scoop.

    ST185 AC system overhaul with photos

    This is very timely because I want to get the AC back into my car next winter. Were you able to remove the core housing without removing the entire dashboard?
