Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Toyota Hilux 4WD 3Y electronic ditributer engine. The ignition coil is inside the disi. The wiring has been tampered with and I need to know what the two wires do that go to the disi, obviosly one is a power supply (i,m guessing that would be the one that runs through the condenser on side of disi) but what is the other wire for? One is black and one is black/red stripe. Is the other wire just for rev counter and therefore not needed?

My father's toyota hilux with a 3y engine was overhaul, but now it fails to start. Please can you help with the timing setting of the engine.

Are you sure the timing is bad?
a Chilton manual can tell you how to set the timing in great detail and it is a very good idea to have it around. They are not that expensive.

If the car starts but spits out of the carb when you accelerate then check the CATALYITC CONVERTER. If the car overheated and sent coolant to the CAT then it melts the inside and blocks the exhaust.
