Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup
Pick up wont start. Where is the fuel filter?
Ever give it a tuneup this decade or last 60k miles.????????????
get the FSM. buy one , used.on fleabay, and be ready next time.
go to alldata.com login and read it.
also at mitchels.
what engine size.
is car a CARB. (yes)
on all cars, carb or EFI , starting is same (basics)
does it crank robustly, yes,
Does engine have 150PSI WOT compression, times 4. (yes)
does it have, spark on all 4 cylinders and is it timed right. (strobe it for time to spec)
answer, yes, (examples) and is timed right.
now we land on fueling
in this case its a carb.
the first test is , is the fuel at the top mark for for float level.
yes, good, no , pump bad. or filter clogged.
is the choke on,, but not 100% if 100 % it floods,
is it ok? the choke plate.?
ok i got every thing it takes to start and its not flooding.
so what is wrong, easy, the carb is TOAST , get a new one.
oops, nobody sells them. its too old a car. in most cases.
but in my cause, i rebuild them.
i restore old cars and motorcycles, (stock)
so can do it. some take 3 used junk carbs to get one working.
and a kit. i find the carb kit first.
then boil it out (Berrymens) then kit it and tune it like the FSM directs.
there did it all end to end.
most 28yo carbs are useless and long gone.
(cept after im done)
i put in butterfly shaft bushing, and kit them.
if they are corroded to dust the hit the trash.
