View Full Version : Someone help me remember this stuff

06-14-2008, 07:09 PM
Well, I got the new motor put in and everything. I found myself left with a small sum of bolts, two stays and a weight mount (counterweight?) looking thing that I cant remember where they go. Here's a pic of what I have left over. I had an extra bag of bolts from previous MR2 projects and the replacement motor had bolts that I reused, so I'm not too concerned about the leftover bolts, but I'd like to know where these stays go and what the hell this weight mount is for. lol...embarassing, I know. But help! lol

After trying for 5 minutes to describe where two of those things go in words, I'm going to give up and just go take some pictures for you.

EDIT: Here ya go. Have to link because they came out freaking HUGE!!!.

The block on far left. (http://www.celicatech.com/gallery/files/3/2/0/P6140002.JPG) Frankly, I can't see any use for it, and I don't know why I keep putting it back on.

The right most brace. (http://www.celicatech.com/gallery/files/3/2/0/P6140008.JPG) The top right is the power steering, the left is the passenger cv axle carrier bearing housing. Sorry for the mess, I have a bad oil leak :(

Sorry I can't help with most of those bolts and left brace, but I hope this is a good start.

The heavy rubber thing bolts onto the front to rear crossmember towards the front of the car. The other thing I have no idea.

oh wait you got a celica?

06-15-2008, 02:27 PM
yup, it's my 93 celica that I'm putting back together. Otherwise, I would have posted this on MR2 forums :D

One more Q, guys. I got a vacuum line that I did not hook up. Might explain why my idle is out of whack.


Anyone know where this hose goes? I've looked all over and cant put my finger on it. Thanks.

The block is a bumper, goes on the bottom of the front-to-rear suspension crossmember. That or it's a balance weight, bolts through the passenger-side engine undercover to the bumper (hard to tell from that photo which it is).

The two bars are engine mounting stays, should be one by your alternator, another behind the starter on the transmission if I'm recognising the shapes correctly.

Vacuum lines: EM-272
Engine stays: EM-275

I got the stay on behind the starter. It's a bit shorter and extends to the the top of the motor mount. As for the alternator, I'm going to have to check.

As for that weight, that goes in the front like you guys said. I found it in the BGB manual. Not sure what Toyota was thinking there. I'm leaving it off. As for the stays, I guess I wont worry too much about it. Hope they arent important! lol
