Relearning to shift will be interesting, the total distance between 1st and 5th is less than an inch of play at the top of the shifter.
Graphics need a comeback
1uz turbo noises inbound, only the finest China dashcam audio too, figured somebody might enjoy this.
Got busy with moving, spent the past 3 months commuting 160 miles a day for work and its finally over. I’ve forgotten how nice living on the Power grid is, no more dirt roads, no more wrenching in the mud and rain!
$1500, 4x4, period correct mods, red interior.
$2000, this is the kind of bad decision I’d be making if I had more space.
Found out why the SC wouldn't start, apparently spending it's life in the at the coast took it's toll on the crank sensor. Car runs now though, only took me the entire weekend to figure it out.
Ran flawlessly doing 170 miles yesterday, cranks but won’t fire this morning. This being my 3rd sc400 I expect nothing less.
Strong muscle car vibes, coming off this sn95.
Sc400s had power steering and hydraulic fan oil coolers (hydro fan being the little radiator) but nothing for engine oil. The next gen uz’s had a water to oil heat exchanger.
3am, middle of the highway. Noticed it maybe 1 second before hitting it, cruise control was set at 70, I got down to maybe 50 when I hit.
Photo of a Toyota or Lexus product, followed by either dog or cat content and a minor personal or vehicular update.
My brother got some new rims, Bask in their magnificence.(Also a comparison photo after the jump)
Basically to get one trim piece off the whole forward interior needed to come out all so I could get to a few screws. Sidenote: Look at this alarm wiring! It’s tied into, locks, Windows, lights, individual sections of the ignition sequence, horns, ignition coils(seems excessive) and probably more considering all these…
Went to a shop that was suggested by a fellow Oppo, cost $66 and they were done in 30 minutes.(because they had nothing to do) I am pleased.
Id really prefer not to spend an additional $220 on a flywheel if I don’t need to considering a new clutch is already $400 from Collins adapters.(and that’s the only place I can buy said clutch/flywheel) So tell me what you think of this flywheel after the jump.
A Canon Rebel T3 with a 55-250mm lense, heres a few shots testing it out on the unloved daily. A 1988, 5 speed and she’s done 6000 miles in 49 days commuting 5 days a week.
I’ve been hesitant to talk about it because I was waiting until it’s smogged and in my name. But alas, thats taking a while and oppos slow lately so heres a rundown of a $1350 sc400's issues.
