Ok I've got a few things going on, it has been haunting me. This fuel filter just won’t fill up it seems to be half to a quarter full. The fuel pump is new, a new Weber carb. I did have the tank re-done because of sediment issues. It did clog things up at one point so the engine wouldn’t run, but I worked through that blowing the lines and such. Would there be something in the pump or in the carburetor to keep the fuel pressure from reaching the proper level? The way it’s working now it idles fine at ½ in the filter then at 1500 RPM cruising speed is drops ¼ and it acts like its cutting out but it’s just starving for fuel. :?

Also I just replaced my voltage regulator with a newer style. This newer style Is great, it has no type of relay in it so you dont get that jumping on the AMP meter, its a strong charge all the time, notice the lower profile also. I’m am certainly no electrician but I do know this has been the best improvement 12 volt wise since my new battery! :tu:

The belts on both driver and passenger won’t release, I’ve taken the wires out because of the restore and the OEM plugs have been taken out so maybe if someone could look at theirs and tell me the colors and the tracer colors maybe I could overcome this wall I’m at. :wink: This schematic will hopefully will help me and others. :tu:

I have the same issue with my '79 Galant but it was never a problem for me. Though when I first noticed it, i was also worried.

I first noticed it after I had the gas tank redone and bought a new fuel pump and carburetor. But so far I never had any problem with the Fuel Filter being 1/2 or 1/4 full.

Those glass filters are kinda iffy... they can come loose and leak, or if the glass breaks, get ready for a fountain of gas in the engine bay! Bit of a fire hazard.

I just got my brand new HARD to find BF Goodrich T/A Radials tires and I love them! They rock, I've gone with these since I’ve had the car. Very nice handling with a smart look. :mrgreen: :tu:

2 1/4 inch pipe with a Flowmaster sounds low and mean

Of course I cant go without showing some polishing. I think its money.

Just wondering...this is my spare and I've had this forever, notice the rust line, and it has held up great but is also been taken careof. So just for giggles does anyone else have a match from their trunk?? I think that would be neat...enjoy some history. 8)

Hello Walter


Your Celica is fabulous.

I like the design with the letters saying "GT", is impeccable.

I noticed that you have the owner's manual of the Celica, have you capacity to do "PDF's" or "jpg" of the handbook pages, for all colleagues of the forum who need it ?

I and the other forum users, appreciate If you could, or even a frend who could help you.

Regards
Paulo

OK I haven’t had time to do anything so this is pretty much a rehash of what’s been done. The weather finally cleared up so I had to go out and take some pics. 8) I took her to a field did a photo-op also did some shots with the LED blues to get an all-round view versus what I had taken before.

And yes Aaron I took one of those vinyl shots of which you’re so drawn toward. :lol: :-D :-D

The windows still need to be re-done :evil: but it will be nice once done. And the headliner at least will fit and no leaky :D

They really look great on your car. Never seen them in a coupe before.
I still sell on there sometimes. But I am still making all kinds of repro decals.
Still going since '05 8)

There comes a moment in time to have something that equals the vehicle that in my case is that crazy sound…music!! I had to get something that would crank this puppy was a very nice upgrade! :boogie:

I don’t have all the specs but 2 - 6x9’s (Pioneer), 2 - 5 ¼ (KICKER), and a sub (BOSTON) in the trunk it rocks. The pictures likes always don’t do it justice it looks nice. I don’t like to shelf the receiver (Kenwood) but in this case I’d rather do that than to cut my dash, NOT gonna happen! :evil: So that will work I have a remote so no biggie.

It’s nice to have all the music in a 4 gig thumb drive who needs radio, but I will say HD radio is very cool also! The install was quite long I replaced everything but it was all worth it. :thumbsup:

I will be replacing my window seals soon. I hope to have video of it, if not at least pics. Thanks for dropping by guys, take care cya.
