    • How come your working on the Toyota ?  you should be knitting warm clothes to wear on your nz trip !   it’s bloody freezing here !!! 🥶🥶🥶🥶🥶
    • Your first port of call is probably Ames Performance - they do nothing but Pontiac. Anything pre 1960 is a bit rare, but if it's available for your car, they should have it. Having said that, welcome aboard.
    • Is this the Toyota Yaris Repair Forum? Oh, good. So, to add to the Epic Parts Fail, today I broke a wheel stud - first time for everything. My new (17 years old) buzzbox must have spent some time by the beach coz when the car turned up I noticed some rusty wheel nuts. Just in case I ever got a flat tyre, I thought I'd remove all the wheels and do some preventative maintenance on the studs & lug nuts to ensure a speedy roadside repair, if the event were ever to arise. EVERY wheel had to be hammered and then prised off with a wrecking bar! EVERY nut was rusted on and in addition where the wheel's centre sits on the hub, that was rusted too! I cleaned, wire brushed, derusted & lubed every item. It's the Pontiac all over again! I have ordered a new stud & nut and am looking forward to hammering the shit out of the old broken stud and replacing it tomorrow. I had a look on YT and some dude used a device called an air hammer. An air hammer! Never heard of it. I'm getting one. It pushed his old stud out like nothing.  Pontiac is running fine, so I am now forced to give you guys Yaris fails! Forgive me.
    • Have seen them when working at the Beechcraft dealer at Oakland Pontiac airport.  Thought they were cool til I heard the price waaay back when.  Have never seen them since.  Been thinkin of making a plate, using the other 2 bolt holes on the head,  then welding a nut to fit the tap, over the screwed up hole.  Run the tap down through the nut.  Thinkkin it Should hold it straight on N maybe counter the DRIFT from the oblong??? If I can tap the hole as it is, I can pull the spacer out of the alternator pivot hole and NOT have to drill the alt case any larger.  Actually the chrome alt is off the Sunbird N I really don't wanna screw it up.  Made the 421 look sooo much better than the old spare cast alt case.
