1983 Cressida Help

08-07-2009, 01:29 PM
I have a 83 Cressida Sedan that's my pride and joy. I've been trying to restore her to her past beauty and I've hit a snag. The air intake connector has a hole in it. It's been patched up before, but I don't think it can be patched this time. I've tried every parts store I could find and tried to order it from toyota, but the part has been discontinued. Toyota told me to try ebay. Does anbody know a website that carries old toyota parts(besides ebay-no luck-2 months) or some adhesive that will seal it up. I'll try to post pics of the old patch later today. I've been searching for months, but no luck. Thanks in advance. :banghead:

You could try a scrap yard. You might have to either make the part your self or buy a cold air intake set up. I know you're probably trying to keep it stock, it just may not be possible.
Post a picture of the part if you could.

You could try some Duro plastic welder epoxy to fill the hole. It sets fairly fast (15 minutes) and stinks like hell, but it does a good job of rebuilding plastic pieces. After it cures, you can machine it, sand it, paint it, etc.

You could also purchase a plastic welder, which is basically a cross between a hot glue gun and a soldering iron. The tip is heated and pressed against the part to be repaired, and a hole through the tip allows you to insert the welding stick of plastic to melt and flow into the repair. As long as the weld site is not at a stress concentration (i.e. a support bracket tab), the weld should hold. Various weld sticks are available to match the material being repaired.
