Yet another plot twist. I may have found a donor for both chrome end pieces and the top step. 160 miles one way but will be very worth it. Guy is very particular about his truck and it looks like great shape. We shall see.
Literally the first time I’ve used it before, if you can believe that. They nailed it with viscosity. Liquid enough to move around easily and lightly flow out, but viscous enough to easily stick to vertical surfaces.
Let’s just hope they are as good as the pics and video looked.
$130 for all three pieces.
65 for new receiver. 150 for the matching set of oem chrome ends with sensor holes. I’ll keep them as spare for my truck or my sons truck should the need arise. 130 for this assembly. $8 for the jbweld.
I could probably sell the sensor hole ends for $350 for the pair.
I made a purchase for the Corolla today. I bought a pair of cams from the very earliest version of the DOHC engine.
As time marched through the 70's/80's, Toyota made the cams milder to help meet emissions targets. So the best cams were from the very earliest engines - 70-71. My head/cams were from the late 70's - they were a bit milder with duration in the 246-248 range and 9.7mm of lift. The head itself was the best head - to restore some power lost with milder cams they increased the port and valve size. So the best of both worlds is the early cams with the later head. The cams I'm getting will have 258 duration and 10.3mm lift.
I've developed a friendship with a young man in Quebec, CN who is building a TG (twincam) for his early Corolla. His engine had the early head/cams. However, he's building a really stout 8000-8500 rpm version. He found a pair of reground cams with 290-300 duration in Australia. He was excited, but couldn't really afford them ($200US). I offered to buy his stock cams for $200 -- he got what he wanted and I got what I wanted.
