I think it is called the front spring pocket - it bolts to the car with 3 shorter bolts that thread into clip nuts you put on the body of the car..

Thanks.  So, these are not welded to the car and cut off; just unbolted?  It looks like some of the metal was cut, so I assumed these were trashed.  I'll have the shop confirm that the car has a good set available from the 81 donor from which I took the rear clip.  The 81 leaf springs were junked, so not sure if the front spring pockets were trashed at the same time.

I did not notice that they were cut - but I can see it now.. not sure if they are usable or not, someone else might provide some insight :)

Managed to get out to garage for a few minutes today. I primed the steering column. Hoping to get in and get the old column out tomorrow morning. See what happens.

OK, so get this.  I took my newly restored 1980 Trans Am up to the local gas station to fill it up and filled up next to a matte black Porsche Panamera.  A couple of the gas station workers were emptying the garbage cans and I overheard one of them say, "Wow, look at that Porsche" as they walked passed my car.  Uh, hello!  Am I invisible here??   :-x

It's not a Porsche though. :P  Don't feel bad, I'd had rather checked out your T/A than an over glorified Audi sedan.  Also your exhaust must not be loud enough if people don't turn around and look once you're within a mile. :lol:

Front body bushings are out so core support is almost off, just get the wiring off the front and the driverside inner fender is holding it on. Seems like theres a stuck bolt at every turn, I think cutting those two off would 6 or 7 destroyed fender/inner fender bolts. I took the spoiler caps off and all but one of the nuts on the center spoiler came off, that one is now somehow free spinning.

Today, had my wife dropped off a few more parts that the shop needs to get my car to a roller: solid body bushings, subframe connectors, transmission and the rusty leaf springs and rusty front spring pockets. The shop thinks the springs and pockets will clean up with sand-blasting and paint just fine. They will confirm the springs fit the car, which I'll let them take care of that detail, after everything, who knows, maybe the springs are from a pickup truck or something.  Since the current plan is that engine is going to the shop later this month, also dropped off the RARE ceramic mini headers.

Today I got the radiator out and got all of the forward wiring out of the way. Once that inner fender is off the core support is coming out! I also ran the numbers on the Q-jet and its a 1977 Pontiac used with an automatic transmission, I suspect this may be the original carb.

Why must it be so hard to find the parts for a manual conversion on GM vehicles?  Probably the same reason it's so hard to find a GM car with a manual transmission.  I hate you GM customers of years past.

Oh yeah, I could've warned you about the carrier mount.  One of the joys of doing the 1MZ swap into the Celica is centered around it.

WHAT?!?  I know of no such swap, especially an engine that only 5% of Camry's are equipped with.  That's kind of hard for me to read right now.........


Anyway, today I... decided to tackle the very last of my exhaust issues.  Had to buy parts from the dealer but oh well.  Hey Box, could you also have warned me just how much of a PITA it is to remove the rear exhaust manifold on the 1MZ-FE?  Due to rust and lack of space, I ended up having to do a destructive removal of said manifold.  I tried welding it back together.  We will see how well that turned out.

Even though my father came over to help me, I had to quit for the night.  Hopefully I'll get it back together after work tomorrow.

If only the previous owner had done SOME kind of maintenance to this car, maybe I wouldn't be pouring so much time/money into it now.  I think the only reason I even bother is because from day 1, when said previous owner said "You fix it, it's yours", I had automatically assumed it was a 4 cylinder.  Little did I know how "rare" a 6 banger Camry is.  Now if it was a manual transmission, I would have the holy grail of Toyota for that year.

At least you destroyed the rear manifold on an automatic motor, the manual equipped cars have a different manifold on the rear and they're hard to come by as you might imagine.  The 1MZ is a pretty popular swap for sixth gen Celicas and second gen MR2s, A LOT of vehicles had the 1MZ; Camry/Solara, ES300, Avalon, Sienna, RX300, and Highlander.  200-210 hp with a 5-speed manual goes a long way in a 2,500 pound car. :P  I actually wouldn't mind a 1MZ/E153 Solara myself, even better if it's the TRD edition with a supercharger.  What's funny is that there was even a TRD Sienna, part of me would want it just to mess with kids in Hondas. :lol:

Good to know. 

Today I...  managed to get my pos DD put back together.  At which point, I realized that dang manifold is beyond saving.  I should NOT have cut it, but I saw no other choice at the time. 

MEH.  At least I have ride for the time being.

Oh lol and I also went to work for 8 hours.  I hate having to need 2 jobs but the money is SLOWLY starting to come back around.

That's not what I meant.  I meant where did you find a running example of said vehicle, that you could actually turn the key and drive.

Today I... did about 15 battery installs @ Autozone.  Frikken ridiculous.  I literally spent 75% of my 8 hour shift outside, working on customers vehicles.

Then, at the 20 mins of my shift, I picked up one last battery and SNAP!  I felt my sciatic nerve give out.  I almost fell down from the pain. 

We have a Dollar Tree next door so I went and bought some generic acetaminophen.  Even with that and 3 beers, I'm still feeling it.  Even my boss told me I push myself too hard. 

Well, of course the events of today coupled with laying on my cold, cold garage floor (fixing my DD), I'm sure didn't help any.

Meh, I'll be fine in a few days.....

You'd be better off taking ibuprofen, it'll help with any swelling at least.  Also acetaminophen is bad for your liver as it is, much less mixed with alcohol.

Box, no offense, but you are preaching to the choir.  Also ibuprofen does absolutely nothing for me.

So today I... woke up at 2:04 AM to the sound of my house alarm going off  :shock:  :shock:   I immediately grabbed my .357 and cleared the house.

Seems to have been a false alarm.

Irony:  My alarm goes off 1 year to the day that my g/f's mother died.  Creepy.

I know what you mean, not even morphine helps with my day to day pain so I said screw going to a specialist every month and all the red tape involved and am just taking muscle relaxers all day along with trying low dose naltrexone in lieu of painkillers since it supposedly helps the chemical imbalance in the brain responsible for fibro.  So far no worse really and seemed like was doing better, but ended up having a bad day today.

Also that's quite interesting.  After my grandmother passed all of a sudden resurrection lilies, of all things, started growing in the yard.

Yeah, going for solid body mounts w/ bolted down SFC and poly bushings for the front end.
Rust repair will just be a bondo job for now, not like anybody is going to see under the spoiler.

If it's just under the spoiler can cut out all the rust with a Dremel and seal it with fiberglass to hold you until you're wanting to lay down a good paint job.

That's ok, I wish I could find a transmission since no one wants the car unless they're wanting to trade their truck for it.  Haven't heard from the guy with the Accord in two weeks so I guess he changed his mind, go figure the one thing I've been offered I'd trade for.  I'm tired of using my brother's Durango, which if anything I guess at least it hasn't been sitting all the time like it usually does...

Hit it with a wire wheel or brush then can use rust converter before patching the holes.

Ironically the Accord guy messages today asking if I still have the car, but still doesn't have the title back yet.  Then before then someone messaged about coming to see the car to buy it, but they're about 100 miles away in Montgomery.  Honestly I'd rather sell it for cash so I can buy something closer to my liking, otherwise I'd rather find a transmission eventually to make it operational again and keep it.

I'm going to remove the decklid and do rust repair and primer it as the same time with the other removed pieces fenders, hood, bumpers, spoilers.

Nothing gets one ready for some responsible and legal motoring like firing up a new engine. :cool:

Oh dang I bet that was freakin awesome :-)


Today I... put the factory replacement Denso double platinum spark plugs in my DD.  I notice zero change in how it runs. 

Also, I topped off the antifreeze and now the heat doesn't cut out when idling.

Lastly, I put a wheel bearing in my fathers HHR.  Finally, an easy day of wrenching. 

LoL now my g/f's Jeep is acting up.  Will this bs EVER stop??

It's all trial and error until something lines up...
