    Anyone have a list of the diff bearing part numbers?

    There's a thread on rebuilding: http://www.supramania.com/forum/threads/how-to-rebuild-the-mk3-rear-differential.203766/ Good stuff there. Driftmotion sells a rebuild kit, which I recommend, as it's a good deal. And, do the solid pinion spacer thing.

    Help! Supra doesn't run right

    You can temporarily demagnetize a magnet by heating it up over its Curie temperature, but it will remagnetize after it cools down. Mechanical shock also will reduce the magnetization, but not get rid of all of it. Neither is really possible here.

    Help! Supra doesn't run right

    Summit Racing has quite a few retrieval tools, with and without magnets. I'd probably try a couple of different ones first.

    Nozzle Sub-Assembly, Washer

    Clearly I should've searched more before buying the wrong nozzles. Yes, there are upgrades to the new ones. I've never had really any issue with the streams, but I've never tried crossing them.

    Nozzle Sub-Assembly, Washer

    From some searching it very much looks like Toyota went to a commodity nozzle for the 89+ models. Many Toyotas well into the 2000s and other cars (like Chrysler) use the later version. That would be why it's still available. Dorman makes one with a 0.24" threaded shaft that may fit. I found...

    Mercedes Big brake kit, brake pads choices ?

    EBC's YellowStuff has worked well for me. If you don't mind dust and some noise, Porterfield R4 is the way to go for braking power.

    Nozzle Sub-Assembly, Washer

    Nope. 89+ nozzles require a larger hole. 89+ is on the right. Hose barbs are the same. Since my hood has no paint on it right now, I'll probably have the shop make the holes larger and use the new ones. It would be very nice to have new plastic there, as the 32 year old plastic is getting kinda...

    Thanks! I'll find out about a week from now.

    Nozzle Sub-Assembly, Washer

    I'm a gonna splurge and get the 89+ nozzles. The low-res line drawings in the EPC look the same for both. Worst that happens is I'm out the 20% restocking fee and return shipping. I'll post a photo when they arrive, in case it helps someone else.

    Nozzle Sub-Assembly, Washer

    So, the pre-89 nozzles are discontinued, but the 89+ ones are not. My '88 needs a new one, and I may as well replace both. Rather than risking $40-ish buying them and them not fitting, I thought I'd ask here. Can anyone supply a good photo of a 89+ nozzle so I can compare, especially the...

    No injector pulse

    If it starts but does not run, check the air flow sensor.

    Does a W58 shifter work in an R154

    Driftmotion's short shifter is very nice, though I found the shortest setting is too short. It has no isolation at all so lets in some noise, but it's not too bad. There's also the S3 V2 shifter from Raptor Racing that has isolation if you're worried about noise. Again, it's a short throw, but...

    Upper control arms ball joint...

    Fronts are also forged. Years ago I hack-sawed one of the eyes off a dead arm. This is not your garden-variety aluminum. It's way tougher, probably with high silicon content.

    KYB Super Special for Street TEMS - close ups

    Nice teardown and explanation!

    Recommended replacement heater core?

    I just dug through my old emails and found what I bought early 2010: PROLIANCE 398296. It's been fine since then (knock on wood).
