just picked up this 79 te38 after deciding that i was in love with old Japanese cars (i also own an 87 na mr2)
future plans include
og sakura rims
coilovers in front, lowering blocks in rear --- 2inch drop
it was in running condition when i got it although when under extreme throttle or under driving load it would die.
i took it apart, cleaned it and put it back together. now it wont run at all and it "back fires" through the carb.
i replaced the plug wires,coil, plugs, distributor vacuum advance, and a whole lot of vacuum tubing (not quite sure if they are in the correct positions though as the previous owner seems to have tried to delete certain elements of it).
does any one have any suggestion of the direction i should go with it now?
i also found this hole in the block above the camshaft
should this not be here or is it some sort of ventilation?
by the way the roof rack is for sale and maybe the window visors just give me a reasonable offer
