Even though I gave the whole installation a good Heave-Ho, to check for clonking anywhere...

... I have had a clonk coming from under the boot floor





Strategic 'bracketry' has won out = severe hooning now elicits no KLONK

I have bought a 50MM size Vac gauge, off eBay.

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 ???

Along with the carb tune I'm planning, I have purchased some parts from Amazon...

A set of Bosch moulded plug leads
A rotor arm - Blueprint
A distributor cap - Intermotor

Denso would be all Toyota OEM but Intermotor have a good rep.

... looking forward to sorting all this out.

Using Bosch replacement parts on a Toyota will cast an evil spell.

...... Quite probably.

I researched 'non Toyota spec' leads and discovered a few that are [basically] a long rigid rubber torpedo, snapping onto the plug but not sealing the tube

These will at least 'look the part' lol

Cheers

*Bosch

The box [... Very Large Box] arrived today and WooHoo.... Out drops the full set of leads + a dizz cap!

It has stamped on the inside of the cap 19101-16120.... This is Toyota part code for 'full set, cap and leads'.

As they were N.O.S. off the shelf I scored for just over 7UkPounds.

Winnah for Dinner

Having seen vids with folks 'tuning' 4A-F carbs, I notice new vac hose run across the engine.

I decided to buy 2Metres of 4mm i/d silicone vac hose... RED!... off Amazon.

Making a nice change from usual lurid blue

That entire engine bay is unfamiliar to me. Is that battery protector wall thingy stock?
