Spent 12 bucks at the wreckers today and got a newer tps, a new looking water temp sender and a new temp gauge sender.  Also got a handful of air temp sensors to plug in and see how they go.  Stopped at a different repco and got a pair of hoses to chop up for the top and rear rad hoses.

Was an interesting 5efe import Tercel.  Couple of Taragos with F diffs installed, one F282 and one F292.

One rwd Toyota car only, the king of econoboxes, the st141.

Couldnt find a throttle cable for the thing either.

The new top hose that doesnt go up higher than the motor or radiator top tank.  Also includes a bleed point.

I have the following bits on order.

New Aisin waterpump with rear housing.

New WT sensor.

New inlet and exhaust manifold gaskets.

New Throttle body gasket.

New rear water fitting gasket.

New Bottom radiator hose.

I need Teddy to help with the ignition stuff, its impossible otherwise, since it all has to come from Toyota Japan.

I would love a map sensor part number 89420-20170 if anyone has one lying around.  Thats from the st170 fwd corona with 4sfe that the ecu is from.

Got all the gaskets, still waiting on waterpump and hose.

Looking for throttle cable for this, I need one with 44.5 or 45mm PCD and with a 24 inch housing give or take.

Help a brother out if you can.

You have been busy.

I thought there were people around that made custom cables for relatively cheap prices.

I suppose there may be.  Despite the throttle being in a similar spot ra65 cable is too short.  Maybe 2 inches.  SA63 far too short I suspect.  AE86 has the narrow pcd and is too short so that rules out corolla platform cables.  I used to have a pile of different ones but I cant find any lying around.

Amazon came through with a water pump complete with the rear housing.  Box turned up open at the edge, but luckily the gaskets and seals seem to have remained inside on the trip from the USA.  Its AISIN, it literally has Toyota ground off it.

Considering installing the bypass and heater hoses from a 5sfe to go with it, because then I can get the benefit of the oil cooler/warmer that they always have, the rwd S motors dont run it, I dont know if for space or because they pre date the use of them, but I think it will fit.

Noticed the exhaust on the car has got no flanges anywhere, its one solid piece from engine to muffler tip, including headers.  LOL>

Looking like this weekend I might get to strip off the manifolds, throttle body, water pump, the timing belt, and freshen it all up.  I'm hoping the reason it stumbles on the gas might be that there is an inlet vacuum leak at the throttle body or manifold gasket.  The TB gasket is shitty and has failed I know from having it off before, but I want to replace the leads and dizzy cap just in case as they are original 1992 dated items and there's a lot of wear on the dizzy terminals.

This ebay toe rag finally sent my item, so i have the S motor mechanical repair guide now.  I need to make sure the warning light is hooked up from the ecu so I can get fault codes.  Good thing is the manual has the wiring description for the warning circuit so i can make sure its good first.

Hopefully the lower radiator hose comes today and I have all the bits ready for the weekend.

So my radiator hose turned up.  Hopefully can put some time into this this weekend.  I really want it running sweet.  Might end up a nice motor combo for almost any rwd smallish Toyota.
