It all make sense now, the spot must be there because of the US car, and of course it's such a small detail that Toyota didn't bother to modify the dash. Thanks for all the info, now i can proceed (when the dam kit arrives) with mounting the windshield.

Some minor update! Big Grin
After all the pieces required arrived, i was finally able to put the windshield back in it's place.
Followed step by step the service manual it was a piece of cake (thanks to a couple of very good suction cup, and a very helpful wife).
Removed all the excess material, marked the correct position with some tape, applied the dam at the correct distance, layed down a nice bead of automotive glass glue (8-10mm if there is no urethane left on the glass), and that was it!
Before everything was dry i've also installed all the clips for the top moulding, that i already have but needs some love.
In the meantime i've completely disassembled the block and the head, ready to be delivered to the machine shop in mid dicember, hoping to start the rebuild in january.
I measured all the internal components and they are all in specs. Some minor surface rust in cylinder 4, and only some leaking from 2 exhaust valves.
Also, in about a week and half i'll be in Japan for a couple of weeks, if anyone need anything just let me know! I already have a couple of package full of parts waiting for me at the hotel Tongue
