My 'right turn' stalk is getting a nuisance with Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz and NOT flashing the turn lamps....

I have read a detailed stripdown/fix [on Ih8mud forum] and have lots of pictures of the basic construction.

Later Toyotas have the stalk as a 'plug in' unit.... Mine (and MR2) is a complete alloy do-nut around the column.
Wheel off, cowlings removed and then unplug/test/strip as required.

The part I picked up off eBay [V Cheeep!] is a Mk2 MR2 assembly.... But I only want to rob bits so it wont matter. They seem all very basically similar tbh

It can't be too bad because when I push forward [full beam position] the turn switch performs perfectly....

Looking forward to the job - I love taking stuff to bits!

Need a deep 19MM socket, retighten 25 ft/lb.

My MR2 stalks arrived today, along with my 19MM socket & M6 stainless wingnuts (for locating the cambox cover).

Just clearing a spot for taking a peek at the actual 'winker' contacts.... For some insight into their condition (here, s/hand) and how I might fix 'in situ', perhaps, mine on the car.



Interesting.....

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 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.









.... sharpie pen mark to keep wheel back in correct spot!

The nut was finger tight - likely years of folks heaving out.. Fitters arm crank retighten! NaaPraablem

Replaced cap, leads & rotor arm.

The red vac hose goes for ever... and I haven't done the 'nest' under the carb!

Still need to check timing and clean the outside of the carb (coated in crusty dust and grease) and tune up

Mojo up for all this

Yesterday I found the car to have a fuel leak.
It is the small bore tank return, from the mech pump.

Thismorning, I dropped in to A V Taylor, parts guys, 9AM...

3ft 3/16" flexi fuel pipe Łuk3.50
2x 12MM screw clamps Łuk1.50



...my MOT garage @9:15 >> 20min wait *+Łuk10 contribution to the staff 'Xmas fund'!

Łuk15 and home

Opinions were the old rubber hose was goosed.

*and no, not DIY job as I hate fuel up my armpit!!

I have had a good think about my 'auto choke' and the rats nest of vac tubing that goes with it....

I have had years of manual choke type cars and I'm suspicious of the Auto mech - is it completely opening everytime? The car sometimes runs like a total pig - fluffing, stuttering and stalls at junctions... Quick restart and runs great = Suspicious!



I'm replacing the T-handle pull with a button type knob.



I will slice the threaded foot off and araldite 30mm Button onto T stub end

Plenty of pictures when I do the install. I have ordered 10x 3mm rubber caps, to blank off any vac ports.

Yesterday I popped the trim off above the pedals, looking to pick up on the wiring to install my 'plip locking' kit. The loom is very densly wrapped as it exits the door boot, into footwell.... I couldn't see any way of picking out the 'locking wiring' easily.

Plan B :
I think I'm going to run 2 wires up into the actual rocker switch base >> these will take the signals down, through the door jamb boot, and then into the control box.
Bit of a faff BUT no loom chopping!

Do it all another day.... Bloominn freezing here, this time of year!



One of my sidelights went off - 5W T10 - luckily I found one in an old Ring bulb kit, from the bottom of my spares box. I had to twist the holder with an OE spanner, inserted behind the headlight void.. Horizontally.. as the space is bare big enough for a childs hand.

All sorted now

Anyone had long test of LED T10 type bulbs (NO..not jazzy BLUE ones)?

Long term, yes.

I have seen LEDs on here, and a chassis set listed by code number.

Its more about sourcing... Quality vs Cheappo?

To be honest I'm quite taken by the use in the roof light.... Seems properly bright

My rear speakers have the 'clip retainer' for the trim cover as part of the cone chassis - like in vid above.

I'm looking to replace the speakers and will be cutting the cone part off, enabling me to retain the 'stock' speaker fabric cover.

Nothing ever straightforward with old skool Toyyos

Ahhhh..
