Good result! It sure took some messing around but you know about VZ cam phasers now than you probably want to, and more than the people who looked at it before you!

Great result! I have a bad habit of buying cars that do not run :hmm: , so I can workout how to fix them and learn at the same time. I know all about cam sensors and phasers and chain setup in these now. I'm so glad I found this great forum with top people willing to me help out :thumbup:

I think this thread will help a lot of people :D

Do Starlet have same engine as a VZ? in the VZ the easy way to tell early or newer phasers is the Balancer

early = 3 spoke balancer
newer = 5 spoke balancer

that picture looks like the old ones to me.
