forgot to update on here, been sorta updating on Stanceworks.

Got another job and a credit card plus the addition of my tax return and its on the road again.
Wired up my efans and got a temp permit to drive around. needs a bit of tuning with the carb but overall I love it.
Today I just got my new windshield, there was a good amount of rust underneath it but with the help of a wire wheel and Rustoleum Rust Reformer, the windshield went on nicely, just need to wait a whole day to even plan on getting it to an inspection station.

As for emissions...idk yet, gonna need some luck with that.
But once all that is out of the picture comes the real progress

Plans are gonna be camaro shocks in the rear due to heavy bouncing and the 4x4 toyota 4 piston calipers $32each at pep boys.

"i wanna know how to flush out the cooling ports in the engine just incase without pulling it out, any suggestions?"


When I pulled out the motor in my car(after accident), I found out one of the freeze plugs was leaking and when i took out the rusted plug, sludge had built up near and around the plug and had to pick the sludge out. I suggest if you can replace those and clean it out.

I bet you those passages are block all thru the years like mine. Dont need to take the engine out just the exhaust and the intake manifold for easy access to the side plugs. the leak on mine was at the back where bellhousing so i really couldn't really see it.

ah thanks for the tip. i think mines are alright for now, not overheating or leaking besides the waterpump seepage.

another TEQ in AZ! I'm up in North Phoenix. It looks good, I really like the chalk (?) on the side.

Hit me up if you're ever in town, I'd be down to meet up!

Looks like a lucky finding, man! In case you would need a cargo shipping for your car there is a helpful link.

hey man. I saw your thread awhile back and noticed your Corona getting up and running. Just moved to Avondale and I saw you pull into walmart from across the parking lot off Dysart tonight. I was hoping to talk to you but i just missed you. I have a 1977 Corona wagon with a 20R. however its staying in California. Maybe we could meet up and I could see your Corona. it would help me if i could just see under the hood. All my emissions devices are disconnected. No air pump, no vacuum distributor (the one on the passenger fender well), crappy aftermarket inline fuel pump. i thought the car looked familiar because i saw the chalk on the driver side rear quarter.

lol its not chalk, i stenciled out those words and sanded em. rusty BUKKAKE lol. and I think you might've meant the walmart on estrella parkway? that's where I work, my car can't drive very far yet, found out I clogged my radiator again so no far meets for me yet.

And for my update, got a weber 32/36 carb and installed. Just need to get a set of cooling port and EGR blockoff plates to clean up more.

just randomly thinking, after noticing that my brake rotor had the wheel studs in them, could I convert my corona to 5 lug using a trucks rotor or hub? so many centerlines I would like to rock but they're all 5 lug
