Just been rummaging through junk boxes on Amazon.... Looking for bits for the 4A-F.

Scored lucky with a set of moulded Bosch 7mm leads @£10 😉

Blueprint Rotor arm and Intermotor Cap.

Although Toyota have a good rep on quality, and the car has only done 90k, I think all new parts + carb tune will be a good move

Even better.. !!

The leads have turned up [in a disconcertingly humongous box] only to fall out with a Dizz cap included...

I will return the loose cap I ordered for full refund.

WTG Amazon 😀

I have a fairly broad selection of combi spanners...

Mostly noname and rough forge stamped 🙁

In TK Max, of all places, I spied some svelt, highly polished spanners. Not [sadly] in their very large 'clearance' tub but reasonably priced.

Whilst in the mood for spending money....

... I sourced 2M of Red silicone vac hose [4mm i/d] so that all vac leak worries will be cleared up before I start tuning. £3 Amazon 😉

Just popped for a wiper/turn cluster, on eBay, to lash up a fix to the 'Right Turn Signal' cluster contacts... Attempting to indicate Right has the cowling emit a sound not unlike stick-welding!!

When you put the indicator/lights arm forward [full beam] the winker flashes great = No Wear on the pips. I need to strip down the switch and replace (from the spare) a fresh/little used pip contact.

Later models have a 'modular' design, with the swich assembly is simply a plug-in c/w arm.

Mine (and similar age MR2) have a complete alloy do-nut going around the wheel... So its a strip n scratch about fix....

I forgive it after 27yr 😬

I'm not sure I have a 19mm socket in my box... So bought one for £2 off Amazon. Should arrive around the same time as the Stalk assy.

Not at home atm so can't look....

My MR2 switch assy arrived today.... And my 19MM socket.... And my Wingnuts 😁

46262661035_b358e2d1a1_c.jpg

I'm clearing a space to strip it down (carefully) to see what is what with the 'winker' contacts... What these s/hand ones look like and how, hopefully, I might fix/swap 'in-situ' my faulty ones.

Like a nice mystery, me.... Bring It On!

Winkers Sorted **Winnah** 🎱

..... the bit of tinplated brass that slides across the pips was 'worn bright' = should have a matte tinning finish.

The piece from eBay, my MR2 switch slider is mint... So just swapped over and I 'lightly scuffed' the surface of the pips with the edge of my jewellers screwdriver. Re-smeared everything with the excess/clean grease from under the cover and clipped everything back in place.
