what are the double over head cam engines in 74 gt celica called and are they 1.6?
The dual overhead cam has two camshafts over top of the valve train instead of one. You may want to take your vehicle to a dealer to have them decode your VIN number. A DOHC or SOHC (single overhead cam) engine is typically marked as such somewhere on the engine itself. There are six engines listed for the First Generation Celica here: http://www.toyoland.com/cars/celica.html Three of them are 1.6L, one is an overhead valve, one SOHC, and one DOHC.
i have some parts for those early celica's if your interested
Is the block an 18r? If it is then you have an 18RG. I have the heads and carbs form one of these. The distributor numbers will give it away also. It is a TRG engine.
the engines are 2tc, 2tg, 18rc, 18rg, 20r the 2tg is the 1.6 dohc motor the 18rg is the 2.0 dohc motor
