Direct Line just renewed my Fully Comp @£197...

£3.50 less than last years price.

I tried for 'classic cover' through the web when I got the car and was told, somewhat sniffily, the only classic Toyota is the Celica...

Well - that's me told! 🤐

I made my 'before' video, of the exhaust pipe sounds, this morning at Tesco.

Hope the New Version isn't too....

Gahh... The curse of the Laser Light Pen ho ho..
Nope 'brick outhouse solid'.... As this is painted with a semi gloss grey [Lidl] not matching factory metallic bloo.... It Looks $H.ITTY
Solid ftw

Laser light pen, that sounds so 80s I'm using a state of the art Galaxy Note 5 pen for those class effects.

Am glad to hear it's solid though, the amount of heartbreak I have felt over a car going to that great breaker in the sky because the rot starts like always in the rear arches and blazes out of control, by the time you see it it's got its claws in too deep. I'm glad to say I've eradicated all corrosion in my outer sill and the Avensis lives to fight on some more

Ooooohhhhh......

Bit of a Mare, if I'm honest.... Nothing unexpected but the C2 has the pipe 'up & over' the suspension subframe and clearance/knocking 360° is a nightmare.

Sounds very subdued and just 'trortlles' away on low throttle...

Does seem to be much more peppy on the March to 7k, mind 😈

Happy its done but I have very sore shoulders from working overhead/under ramps.

Since doing this job, last week, I have had a Verrrrrry Annoying 'clunk' emanating from the boot floor area....

I gave the system a good Heave-Ho when I put it on BUT - having just been under to look - it may be just catching the tie bar bolt/brkt. Bummah!

However...... A quick sortie into my 'odds n ends scrap brackets' box soon had me sorted!

Just popped over to Home Bargains for 5L 10W40 Semi Synth.

Pick up an Oil filter in the morning and get it done.

Oil filter £5.

Had to use my 'low blow' plate ramps - my higher ones won't go under the chin lip.

I cut a slot up the under tray (very caveman, I know... ) to get my arm up to the Oil filter.

I have bought a 50MM size Vac gauge, off Amazon £3.70 inc post!

51ZuqX8tbdL._SL1020_.jpg

Anyone had any success tuning their carb using 'mercury vacuum' as the setting?

Some webbie opinions favour the 'true vac', by gauge, over 'setting by ear' - listening to the engine stumble - as an indicator ??

Where do we stand on this ?

And which pipe does anyone use for the *steady manifold vac?

.... *The pipe for the dizzy advance is 'ported' so not ideal for this.

I have just seen this picture on ToyotaNation and am curious..

31175687107_639fc8eb93.jpg

It is a magnetic reed-switch and, from the description of the assembly of the speedo cable drive, a magnetic drum provides a pulse which is used to drive the 'needle deflection' for speed read out.

Are there lots of speedos using an electronic modulator? Why not an old-skool drag/coilspring... Better accuracy eh?
