Hahaha, thanks Toji, but I think I am gonna hold onto my rain guards for now...

Vince, I still have the emblems for you whenever you need them.

So can anyone verify whether I can swap the carbureted 4M intake manifold onto the 4ME motor to make it practically a 4M?!

Someone is selling a 4ME locally and wants $150 for it. But it is quite a drive so I want to make sure before I make the trip.

Thanks!!

If you have a parts store that sells parts for older Toyotas, you could try ordering an intake gasket for both and then comparing them? Cheap way to find out... :wink:

Good call.

According to Rock Auto:

1980 TOYOTA CRESSIDA 2.6L 2563cc L6 MFI (M) [4ME] SOHC : Engine : Intake Manifold Gasket

BECK/ARNLEY Part # 0374364

1979 TOYOTA CRESSIDA 2.6L 2563cc L6 2BBL (M) [4M] SOHC : Engine : Intake Manifold Gasket

BECK/ARNLEY Part # 0374365

They have a different part number... ARGH!!!

Hey Toji, how much do you want for your 4M? I don't really want to do a swap yet and I don't think I will find a 4M locally in the near future. Let me know bro.

So the car is up and running again.

Dash and armrest rewraped but didn't turn out as well as I hoped.

I am deciding whether to put on fender mirrors and the position of them.

Most of them right behind the side marker:

I did another pic with the mirrors a little further back:

Third option is not to put them on at all. After staring at the pics for a while, it's beginning to look like the car looks a lot smoother without them.

Opinions?!?

And the "Story" continues...

So I was going to drive her home for the first time since the purchase and was going to stop by my friend's house to look over his car.

I was having problem staying over 65 on the freeway so I was in the slow lane. Felt a little hesitation and was losing lots of power on steep parts of the freeway. No big, just thought I'd putt her there and look her over later.

As I pulled off the freeway, she dies. Tried to start her up again, and she started, and died again as I put her in drive. Crap...

So I barely putted her into the nearest parking lot, thank goodness it was a Schucks/O'Reily's.

Called for back up and ended up spending 3 hours in the dark to find that either the fuel line was clogged and/or the fuel pump was dead.

We ended up hooking am electronic fuel pump, attached to a gallon of fuel sitting on my lap as we crawled over to his house.

That thing drank a gallon of gas in about 1.5 miles!!!

Left the car there over night outside his house and went back today to try to blow some compressed air to unclog the fuel line. It was hot and the pressure caused the fuel line to leak gas when I got there. So somehow the line got unclogged by the heat. We then tested the mechanical fuel pump, and it worked also. WTF?!

So I dumped a bottle of HEET in the gas tank and let her idle. She seemed just fine, but was beginning to run a little hot.

Took her for a drive and she did well for the whole day except when we hit a 40 minutes section of traffic. She began to heat up a little. But the traffic started flowing again just before I was gonna put over to let her cool.

Replaced the fan clutch and wow, what a difference...

I am kinda worried if the pump will die on my again. I tried calling NAPA and they pretty much told me there don't have any replacements in the US.

Any ideas what I could do to replace the mechanical fuel pump?

Here are a few pics I took yesterday before the incident mentioned above! :oops:

How impossible would it be for me to run 15x9 -15 and -25?


Question: Diamond's website lists the 15x8 Pro's maximum backspace at 5". Is this what you have? That should be around -24 or -25, correct? 3mm is probably splitting hairs, just making sure what you have, to try and guess what I need. :P

Also, what's the current tire size? I'm looking for a similar look, but think I need a 195/45-15 on a 15x8 +0 (4.5" backspace).

Tire size is 195/45/15.

Wheels were put on by previous owner. He mentioned in another thread that they were 15x8 -22 all around.\

I can measure the offset for you the next time I have the wheel off if that'll help. :)

Thanks Vincent.

I tried calling your and texting you. Was gonna see when you wanted to measure the lip. I have a guy locally that can custom make those for you.

I am so looking forward to seeing your car!!
