MX73 in Oregon

Post by Spikeophant on Sat Mar 15, 2014 11:23 am

I have an MX73 Cressida I just bought, I love the MX73's and am super happy to have my first. It's an 86, 5spd swapped. Not much in the way of goodies on it right now, some alright wheels, cut springs, OBX Header, straight pipe exhaust, Spectre CAI, and no name aluminum rad with dual fans. Issues are needs a clutch soonish, probably should do timing belt, the diff was welded. It's an ex drift car I'm making my daily. Fortunately the interior is mostly all there. I'd like to swap to leather, does anyone know if these cars ever came with black leather? Or even barring that black cloth?

It dies when coming to a stop sometimes, when I push the clutch in. Looking for ideas on where to start. I put a slave cylinder in, checked out the diff for broken welds, did the wheel bearings, had it aligned, heater hoses should be here Monday as they look pretty worn. It leaks oil everywhere, so I'll rather than reseal the whole motor I'll just build a new one and swap it. It does smoke a little here and there. It's missing some interior trim here and there too, so I'll be looking to replace that, A/C has been removed, and I'm okay with that.

Just picked up an MA61 4.10 LSD diff to install. Should be here next week. Pretty excited, got a Momo wheel too for it. Clutch and timing belt next.
