one of my friends in Japan.... who knew I was looking for a replacement/extra dist cap saw this... and bid on this..... and WON!! 

 

at least with the Yen to dollar being quite good right now... I'm getting a bargain... and a complete undamaged set of ignition wires.

Wow...score!!!

I also read about the exchange rate recently...perhaps I should head to Yahoo Japan Auctions to glance at Cappuccino parts! laugh

 

I just realized how big a score this actually was/is...  As you can see... plenty of broken ignition bits in the circled section.....

Valve spring specs are finally in....

 

In our case we do need to keep an inner valve spring as that spring holds the valve seal in place.

 

 

More to come...... smiley

A bit of an update on the valve springs....   There are a few choices from SBI for a replacement outer springs - keeping the existing inner springs....  And I'm calling Pac Spring tomorrow and see what they might have..... 

Update spring page

looks like I may have found my spring.........  I sent an email to Pac Spring, and their response.....  

 

That would make it 100 pounds on the seat, and 225# on the nose......

 

..... and now for the but...  it is a proprietary spring, it is the inner spring to dual kit from AFR, the AFR-8019 valve spring.  Matt has a phone call into AFR to see if they would be willing to sell me 16 inners.   I could buy the set, but at $315.00, and all I need are the inners - Matt thinks its worth the effort to see if AFR would be willing to sell me just inners....   

 

more to come....... wink

I saw that - well, a few moments of it, anyway.  It only took a few moments to realize the presenter is not only a lazy hack with a very punchable face, but also a jackass who doesn't know his back end from a pork sandwich.

Toyota made many.....  all the "T" series engines (DOHC, and pushrod), all the "R" series, and all the 2 valve "M" series used hemi type chambers.

Just acquired... Yahoo Japan...  $45.   Shipping likely to cost more.  Plan is to check if it works... if it does yes, if it doesn't - get it rebuilt.

 

 

I believe it goes on upper right (looking at engine).....

 

 

 

at least that is where it looks to be on other 5V's
