198? Toyota Carina (2) cold\old start and offroad drive!
Older Toyotas are great cars! It sat for 4-5 years, and were supposed to be restored, but were halted for some reason. Apparently the head gasket was blown as there was very much water in the engine oil... The oil was greenish\creamish white! Geez! We did replace that with som 8000km used diesel engine oil, and when we poured it in the engine the oil was so thin it actually looked like we poured water in the engine! The car still runs.
HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old
engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate
between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from
junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one
broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.
Toyota Carina II ST171 walk around!
Showing off my '88 Toyota Carina II ST171 (2.0L 3S-FE with 121hp/176nm).
Its 26 years old and is in near mint condition. It has been well kept, from
new, by an elderly man who knew how to properly take care of his cars. I
bought it from his grandson after he passed away.
I've had a couple of Carinas before this one. The first one had been in my
family since 1999. The ST171s are utterly reliable, they're practical, and
they drive quite well.
@9:00: Cambelt is changed now!

Toyota 4A-FE engine cut-out
Cut-out I made from a Toyota 4A-FE engine block. The engine was removed
from a Toyota Corolla AE101 to be replaced by a more powerfull engine.
After collecting dust for several years, the engine's owner decided to
donate it to me so I could open her up.
Here is a brief impression of how that process went and of course, the end
