    Toyota Gas Turbine Vehicle...

    I worked for Dana Corp, which experimented with road going turbine engines in the 80's. The problem is stop and go, i.e. which would be normal idle speed conditions, the turbine has to keep running at high RPM, which means burning a lot more fuel. Davew7
  2. If all else fails, and you can not find a replacement float seat, someone with a jewelers lathe could dress the sealing surfaces. Davew7
  3. Once you have swapped the push rod, you should adjust the rod length until you have 1mm clearance, before the push rod contacts the M/C piston. Davew7

    Gearbox Oil on '81 Corolla KE70

    Do not use gear lube with a GL-5 or GL4/5 rating. Only use GL-4 or GL-3 in the trans. Using a lube with the GL-5 rating long term will destroy your syncho's in the these older trans designs that have brass alloy syncho's. DaveW

    Bonnet Bracing

    google Ashland Chemical, for your nearest distributor. They make a 2 part structural adhesive that is designed for that application. It is relatively quick setting. Can be applied in any position, will only take about 15 to 20 minute before it's useable. davew7
