Hello all, I am a very happy new owner of a reasonably clean 1974 Corolla SR5, and I am looking for good sources of information. Are there any sites that pertain specifically to TE27s, any manuals that are better than others, etc. etc. If anyone has anything helpful to say, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Not everything on there is 100% but its the best source of TE27 info IMHO.
Lets see some pics. :tu:

Congrats! This was the first car I attempted an engine swap on, and it was far easier than I thought. No Corollas at the moment, but getting a Toyota-published chassis & engine manual has always served me well.

Thanks a ton for all the replies! My SR5 is indeed the one that the gentleman in Gadsden was selling. I was very lucky to have contacted him before anyone else did, I must have seen the listing as soon as it was put up.

I will be sure to post some pictures tomorrow. By the way, if anyone has a good gas tank they are looking to sell, I am apparently in need of one. It looks like this one was dropped at one point in time...

Then I can't thank you enough! You would not believe everything that was involved in me getting this car...a guy in Miami offered me a decent amount of coin to stay in Kentucky and not take it. After refusing that, I drove 5.5 hours to buy the car. After I moved it somewhere secure, I drove 5.5 hours back home, then made the trip again with a truck and trailer (it took me forever to find a truck to use...). Good cars come with a good story, and that is a very condensed telling of it.
