Over the weekend I changed the knocking bottom end out for a "built" one in a friends 87. Today he called a said that the passenger side floor is wet with coolant. The only thing I touched inside the car was the center console to put the shifter and the glove box for the ECU. I do remember now that one of the hard coolant pipes on the driver side in the engine bay was abit out of round. Does't sound right that it could leak into the cabin on the pass. side. :scratch:
Would be me luck that his heater core would start to leak right after I installed his engine. :rolleyes: Anyone ever experienced this with their supra.-Patrick

The heater core is probably the only job i will consider letting a shop do to my car, besides the obvious, like machine work, paint, etc.

It looks like the biggest pain in the ass...

it's not as bad as people make it out to be. to get the dash out, after you've removed all screws holding it in, the easiest way i've found is to pull off the two nuts under the steering column. (they're larger ones)

let the steering wheel/column assembly drop down onto the driver's seat and rest there. the dash will come out without much trouble after that.
