>>25419914WOAH OH OH >>25419018There's a price for everything tho, what was it?It's not even FB man it's just people in generalBut I hear youImagine buying a car 30 years ago >>25419592It's one of those "if you have to ask" dealsIt's not a hard job, but that's completely relative to your experienceTechnically you're supposed to vacuum all the old shit out and pay a disposal feeSo yes it will almost certainly be expensive if you pay a shop to do it, but what isn't? This too is relative
It's me! Also I spotted a friend today, what are they discussing
Got my exhaust done today and drove the car all day.The car is awesome now, im even able to spin my falken 225s in first gear. Thankfully the new engine isn't as powerful as I was worried it'd be.https://files.catbox.moe/3d1g5i.mov>>25416963post car
while i got my cressida's engine apart i also decided to fix the neutral safety switch and see if i could fix the speedo cable causing the speedo needle to bounce. Unfortunately for the latter, the cable appears to be impossible to remove from its sheath, so I just dribbled some oil down it and hopefully that lubes it enough to stop the wobbles.Neutral safety switch I took apart because the L gear indicator on the gauge cluster never lit up. Not too much gunk in there for a 33 year old vehicle. Gently scrubbed the copper contacts with 400 grit sandpaper to polish them up. L gear now lights up as it should.Fan clutch and oil in pic related. Two bottles of 10,000 cst viscosity oil. You can get thicker or thinner oil depending on whether you want more cooling, or less noise. One bottle is 18 ml, two is enough to fill it up as these clutches are apparently underfilled from the factory.I almost stripped the screws holding these things together. They're a PH3 phillips bit, but if yours is stuck get an impact screwdriver and hammer that bitch loose.
>>25422402Left side is the rear part, the bit that actually bolts to the water pump pulley. Oil reservoir is in right side. There are two PH2 phillips screws that allow for adjusting the valve, in the pic I already adjusted them so the valve will be half open at 45C for us shitposters (35C for burgers). These screws may need an impact screwdriver; sort of stripped the head on one of the screws as you can see.Max fluid is when it overflows out the central hole. Minimum amount is when it flows past the depth of the outer fins. Factory fill + 1.5 bottles of the stuff was enough for me. Will be a while before I can give a verdict as to whether the fan will make too much noise and rob power from the engine, or not.
>>25419914>Yota poster>808 in nameEh braddah, you from Hawaii?
I just finished refurbishing a set of Tom's Spirit C3-R deep dish, they'll be installed on the car on monday, and if I like them I'll consider buying new tires for them.
>>25422630Before pic for comparison
anyone know the valve shim diameter on a 4afe/7afe engine? some websites say 25mm others say 28mm and i dont really want to pull the valve cover just to check>>25422630what car?

>>25420915Probably making fun of that silly Citroen>>25422194Dude that's awesome. Are you still running autocross? Or did you ever, I forget>>25422402>>25422506Neat, always wondered what the inside of one of these looked like>>25422609Not from HI, just a fan of the Roland>>25422630Looks good. 15x7? What bolt pattern?>>25423268Nice, and clean!
>>25423268bro thats just a 318i compact
>>25423713>Looks good. 15x7? What bolt pattern?Yup, 15x7, 4x100 ET35, perfect spec for an AE101, the poster car for these wheels was actually an AE101 Levin. Although they were also available with an ET31 offset, which I think was to compensate the narrower rear drivetrain of these cars and get a slightly better fitment, but I'm only guessing, it's not easy to find info on this kind of jdm wheels.>>25423748Not the first time I've heard that one haha, I have to agree though, they're kinda like butt twins

>>25422630>>25422633Looks great anon
>>25423268looks minty bro what width tyres are you gonna use?
>>25424333its stock all it has is a little dump tube off the turbo so its pretty loud and i was giving it a little gas to keep it alive
I have a 1996 Toyota Starlet that I want to replace the coolant in, since it hasn't been done in years and the plastic reservoir is basically empty, but the owner's manual only mentions using Toyota Longlife Coolant, which is in the radiator currently, red dye and sticker confirms that.Only problem is here in NZ I have no idea where to actually get this older type of coolant; will any HOAT coolant be fine to use with it? Its the 4E-FE engine, which is a cast iron block with aluminum head and radiator; I looked through the archive and get the impression that's what I would use.
>>25424864Yeah bro I'm pretty sure you can just use the normal green coolant from repco
>>25424878Yeah I'm just gonna do that I reckon, I bought a different coolant with red dye but looking at it closer I'm 99% sure this is the wrong stuff
>>25424931I'm not an expert but I think when you go to repco/supercheap the green stuff is for iron block aluminium head and the red stuff is for full aluminium - I *think* that's the system.But where it gets confusing is your vehicle manufacturer might just use whatever the fuck colour they want for their oem coolant.
>>25423713>you still running autocross?yep, took my miata to the first event this year, not going again til I feel safe driving the martoo an hour there and back
>>25424864you could always get the concentrate from the dealer. Or if you don't want to get ripped off, search up the part number 08889-80086. Any coolant that is HOAT should be fine. Changing coolant types (IAT, HOAT, OAT etc.) is where things get dodgy because if you don't fully clean out the cooling system of the old coolant, you'll get sludge in it when they mix.>>25425161You can't really go by colour these days since there's an assload of coolants and manufacturers will use whatever colour they want. Have to read the label now to see wtf they actually are.Main coolant types are IAT, OAT and HOAT. There are subtypes of HOAT but that's a whole other can of worms.IAT is for cooling systems with aluminium, iron, brass and/or copper components. Usually has to be replaced every 2 years /50,000 km.OAT is for cooling systems with aluminium only. Usually replaced every 5 years/160,000 km. If you use this in cooling systems with non-aluminium metals it may result in corrosion due to lack of inhibitors for non-aluminium parts. Or due to the ingredients reacting with them, can't remember which.HOAT is meant to combine the best of both IAT and OAT coolants. These tend to have much longer service intervals, anywhere between 7-10 years/500,000-1 million km.Now from what I've found, toyota red is either IAT, or HOAT coolant. Technically a PHOAT coolant i.e. phosphate-hybrid organic acid technology. People say it's either 2 years, or 5 years change interval. It's all over the place. But what I do know, is that if you have a multimeter you can easily test whether your coolant needs to be replaced or not.Stick one end into the cold coolant, other end on negative battery terminal. Run engine and check voltage. Greater than 100 mV (0.1 V) and there's a reaction going. Greater than 300 mV and you need to change that shit as soon as you can, because galvanic corrosion is occurring. This occurs due to the ingredients breaking down over time or with use.
>>25425489Yeah the colour definitely fucked with me, since the Starlet still has Red Toyota coolant in it, and I mistakenly figured that I'd be fine with a red one from the shop, which I returned. I'm glad I asked to be sure, I appreciate the helpGonna see if the local dealer carries it later
>>25425504if you have the owners manual it will say exactly which coolant to use. it wont say shit like hoat and oat it'll have ethylene glycol or whatever it wantsalso might be a sticker on the radiator supportthen just go to supercheap and look at the ingredients on each bottle
I want to buy a jzx100 chaser/markii/cresta w/ MT, but I only have enough money for beams. Is it that bad?
>>25424504Thank you :)>>25424525I haven't decided yet, I was looking at some 205 semi slicks, but a 50 sidewall gives me a smaller overall diameter, and a 55 becomes larger, both by a margin of 1cm, there's no exact equivalent to my current tire size, 195 55R15, if I can't decide I'll just keep my current size. For the model the Yokohama AD08RS looked decent
rubs on the front with new pilot sport 5 245/40/18. I'm getting front ucas to add more camber so it tucks the wheel in the fender.
>>25425766the owners manual will just say to use a "good ethylene glycol based coolant, do not use alcohol based coolants" or something like that. The different types of coolants all contain ethylene glycol, and you could probably get away with things like using pink when red would be more suitable, but don't be surprised if after a few years of doing this, you encounter problems like pinhole leaks in the radiator or heater core due to earlier-than-expected corrosion. Or sludge buildup etc. These problems probably wouldn't appear if you regularly change coolant though.
>>25426021>The different types of coolants all contain ethylene glycoli didnt know i only thought the green one had that lel
>>25424864Oh neat another kiwifag,
>>25422194>post carOld picture I've already posted a couple times since I'm still not used to taking pictures of my car. Gotta get a bit more into photography for it. Still need to get an emblem for the front but damn they are expensive. I found 91-92 ones on Amazon.jp but they are "temporarily out of stock" so I'm not holding my breath on it.
>>25425915Those are R34 GTR wheels, right? They look pretty good on there.
>>25428580they are but Im wanting to change them for lmgt1 or lmgt2

page 9 bump
I have autistically restored the entire hvac panel. All switches reflowed with fresh solder, cables lubed with graphite, new faceplate, any broken tabs plastic welded. ICE COLD A/C BR/o/S
>>25432284Crisp anon good work, I really need to get around to fixing the cental locking servo in my right rear door but I don't carry people in the back enough.
>>25426021If I have a 1uz and I'm switching to an aluminum radiator, should I use red or pink?
An adjustment lever on the speedometer unit snapped off inside the gauge cluster. Found a donor unit from an AE82 at the junkyard after the AE86 fb groups gave me the classic jew scalper "I know what I have" prices. It was a direct drop in. I will not be relaying that information there as those vultures will start buying up anything that is remotely compatible with that car to hoard and fuck over people down the road. I managed to plastic weld the broken piece back onto the other cluster and both work fine.
I'm having trouble bleeding my aw11s coolant system. I followed the bgb and it says open all 3 bleeder valves and attach hoses to the front 2, fill with coolant until it comes out of the engine bay one and close that, then continue filling until it comes up the tubes at the front and close those. Open the filler cap half a turn so air can escape and run at fast idle until it's warm or for about 3 minutes. Check if it needs any more coolant topping up and you're good.But after doing all that, the coolant comes out the overflow into the overflow bottle, fills the bottle up and dumps onto the ground. I've got a new filler cap incase that's the problem but it still keeps doing it. And when i check it the filler cap has no coolant in it cause it's dumped it out which means there's a bunch of air now in the system, I can hear the air when I turn the heater on, lots of gurgling and bubbling noises for a few seconds. The car doesn't overheat and stays where it normally does just under the middle of the temp gauge. It's got a new radiator and sillicone hoses and a new oem thermostat. Doesn't appear to be burning any coolant or oil, it's been rebuilt recently with a new headgasket and passed the mot emmisions fine, drives lovely aside from the coolant coming out the bottleAny ideas?
>>25425203How's the new engine going to change your class? Nice pic btw, that looks like a fun course>>25425489Good galvanic advice. I did a bunch of digging into the MSDS's for different coolant types last year and found it's even more complicated than that, additives varied across different brands of "Asian Red" for instance>>25432284>>25433284That's some nice work, cheers>>25433336I saw once, an aftermarket radiator where the neck was either too short or too long, causing similar issues. I have seen brand new radiator caps where the ears aren't bent in enough to allow the cap to seal fully, I've seen the same ears/threads not cut properly on new radiators, so inspect all this closelyIs it like constantly pouring out the overflow after it warms up or just once and done
>>25432831might be able to switch to pink, but find out what the heater core is made of too. See if there's any other metal cooling system components that might be non-aluminiumalso make sure you completely flush the system. don't want leftover old coolant mixing with pink and making sludge
>>25433284how did you get the needle off the gauge face? ive been trying to clean the dials on my 102 and the needle just wont come off no matter how hard i pull
>>25433284that kind of jewry reminds me of an ebay listing I saw for was some oem yota part and the seller blanked out the last five digits of the part number. I've heard of sellers doing that bullshit but this is the first time I've come across one myself. Lowlife scum know exactly what they're doing.
Finally got around the cleaning her up a bit
>>25434825>How's the new engine going to change your class?I'm gonna be in the same class since the previous suspension mods already put it in a pretty high class, but now its actually going to be competitive since I was going up against c5 corvettes prior to the swap>>25436793Looks great man, I wish my paintjob looked as good as yours
>>25435771You're not pulling hard enough anon. Interesting to note the spacing is the same for the faceplates so making custom ones wouldn't be too hard down the road or adapting from another car. Nippondeneo made a lot of the gauges for other cars like third gen firebirds.>>25436090All the AE86 vendors and fb sellers markup shit like gold now its gross. Both battlegarage and 86legends have the FJ60 LC hinges listed as beefy upgrade hinges and blur out the part numbers cause u can buy them cheaper thru toyota or amayama, etc
>>25419914>>we like Lexus!>>we like oddball stuff!what about uhhh daihatsu
>>25435771Did you try the 2 spoon technique? it's the safest way to pull a needle from a gauge cluster afaik.In other news, the Tom's are on, and they look pretty good I think, I just had my old tires mounted on them but they look a bit more meaty now, they also feel much better on the road, giving more feedback as they are quite lighter than the TTE's I had previously, it'll be a ton of maintenance just to keep them shiny though, now that the lip on each wheel is polished bare metal, and with the huge flat side of the dish the brake dust accumulates so much faster now, I drove an hour yesterday and they were already disgusting haha.
>>25433284How much did those kikes want for a plastic piece? Just curious.
>>25438566Last faggot who listed a GT-S cluster on fb wanted $250 for it and $150 for an SR5 cluster. I have a source at the junkyards still so I just fucking buy them there for $40, filthy cunts. The JDM people are inconsistent so I ignore them.
>>25433336>>25434825So it turns out it was the o ring on the bleeder valve in the engine bay was fucked. It was letting air/coolant flow up into the overflow bottle which it shouldn't do unless you're bleeding it. The rad cap was fine, it was just coming from the bleeder valve and as it heated up or built pressure it just dumped into the overflow bottle then on the floor, also wasn't building any pressure at all and letting air in constantlyNow the pipes get solid with pressure and it's bled properly for once, also the rushing noise when I turn the heater on is gone
Is a 2000 4Runner 4cyl 2wd with 180k miles a decent/reliable enough vehicle for a daily driver? Would you pay $4k for one in really clean shape?Don't mind the fuel economy, my current car gets 16mpg on premium and I want an SUV.
>>25434935OEM heater core is brass. I will make sure it's flushed crystal clear before I do anything else though.
my cressida lives! finally finished the top end rebuild. Unfortunately first start up since there was nothing in the fuel rail yet, the bucking caused by the first drops of petrol going into the cylinders caused the shitty hood struts to give way and smash my timing light to bits. Initially just dialled it in by looking at the clean spot on the distributor adjusting bolt kek. Seems to work well enough.I also gotta adjust the fan clutch, it sounds like a hurricane when gentle acceleration occurs. Actually I think I might've overfilled it since it seems to be engaged all the time.
>>25442729yeah in that case might be better sticking with red. You could *probably* get away with pink if you change it often enough, but for the added price on top of the fact that it's only sold premixed, you might be better off sticking with toyota red or its equivalent. Toyota red seems to have additives that perform the best and last the longest though, at least from the few people that were actually bothered enough to test it.Judging by how people on forums talk about it, it could practically be an extension of the indestructible/overbuilt toyota meme.
>>25442756>Initially just dialled it in by looking at the clean spot on the distributor adjusting bolt kekDon't knock it, the last time I swapped a dizzy I did that to get it started and when I got the timing light out it was bang on 10 degrees
>>25442756>>25443251>Initially just dialled it in by looking at the clean spot on the distributor adjusting bolt kek>Don't knock it, the last time I swapped a dizzy I did that to get it started and when I got the timing light out it was bang on 10 degreesI've done that too. THANK THE CAR GODS!
Anyone here know anything about the 4wd Tercel wagons?An '86 one is for sale near me for $1100. Supposedly had a lot of suspension parts replaced, along with the old transmission replaced with a rebuilt one.Body looks good, minimal tiny rust spots here and there. Engine blew the head gasket, which is the reason the owner is giving as to why he's selling it now.Should I try pursuing this one? I don't mind doing the wrenching for a head gasket replacement, but I'm wary because I don't know the common failure points on these. What else could be seriously wrong besides the head gasket?
>>25444028>>25443251kek. well according to the factory manual, 10 degrees is smack dab in the middle of the adjustment range.The only holdup I had was that there is a notch on the dizzy housing that you use to line up the a little notch on the gear that the camshaft drives, but it only goes to either the left or the right of the housing's notch; it never lines up perfectly due to some odd detents when you try to rotate the shaft. Right now I've got it set to just after the housing notch and it seems to be ok so far. really want a timing light and some random on fb marketplace is selling cheap, but as usual the seller never replies or is taking their sweet ass time
>>25445005buy a timing light at the parts store and return it when your done
>>25445005The gears on the dizzy are helical so the shaft always ends up rotating a few degrees as you push it in. If it runs well somewhere near the middle of the adjustment slot then you're almost definitely on the right tooth, when you're a tooth off it won't run nice unless you're just about full advance or retard.But it's best to always rotate the engine to TDC cyl #1 and take a picture of the rotor before you take the dizzy out - that takes out the guess work.
>>25442766Red it is. I appreciate the advice very much. All the earlier discussion about red vs pink was honestly just making my head spin. Thank you
>>25445122i wish i could do that. everything is wrapped in clamshell or shrink wrap packaging so you can't return it because 'the packaging is damaged'
>>25446994You can try Amazon they'll accept any return as long as it's in the return window it seems like. I can't remember how much stuff my friend opened, used for a bit, then returned for a full refund.
Slapped a cooling system together so i could start playing around with the tuning of the suprahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGD-2VO6LNEIdles rock solid now and the throttle tip in stumble is mostly fixed
>>25446994lol in australia we can return shit on a whim by law so i had no problem taking my timing light back without any packaging
>>25448483wait what really? I was always under the impression that you couldnt return stuff if the packaging was open. there's always some disclaimer about how returns must have original packaging etc. etc.if i can return it then i might head to super cheap auto. really hope so because i dont want to pay 80 bucks.
>>25448539kek i did it at the supercheap in chermside like 4 year ago, i said the light didnt come onthe lady goes>do you want to exchange it for a new one?>noshe knew i was bullshittinganyway get one of those innova lights off ebay they're on 70 bucks and they have a digital rpm gauge built in. much better than the aliexpress tier shit at supercheap
>>25422506ok so turns out my hurricane fan was because I set the valve adjustment way too far anti-clockwise. The thermal valve was basically letting the silicone oil in instantly. Dialled it back to almost original spot and now it's much much quieter (and thus less parasitic).
>>25448663lol damn, if only i knew it was this easy earlier. i guess the floor staff arent paid enough to give a shit. will look at that innova one thanks, although im also looking at the hella/optilux timing lights/analyser since i got one off some random on gumtree before and it worked well before the hood slammed on it.
Let us not give up yet.
i fixed my tachometer
>>25433284What's with the peppers
>>25419914What would be the best SUV i could buy?
>>25452371>classic toyota>suv1st gen rav4
>>25447988Now that's more like what I'd expect a JZ idle to sound like, although a bit high but I'm sure you've still got to do all the cold start idle up tuning and what not. >>25451095It took me a while to figure identify this cluster but I'm thinking it's the white AE92 anon?
>>25451170i rub them on my balls to stay awake
>>254523711985 toyota cressida
Finally got my engine lid back on and my engine bay fan running again. BOV isn't obnoxiously loud anymore thankfully, but I think I might get a silencer for the exhaust just for long drives. Only major things left on mine are water to air intercooler, battery relocation, and getting the speedo working.>>25447988Sick man, cant wait to see yours running and driving
>>25453117lol i do have the white 92 in my garage but that cluster is from my ae102 daily. the tacho always sat at 0 because the caps had leaked, just like every other capacitor in the car
>>25453117Its set at 1000 rpm idle for the time being. Wasnt sure what I needed it at and didnt want to read through the manual. I think I will probably end up setting it to around 800. I'm not running an idle air control valve so generally its good to keep it higher>>25454851I actually drove it a little bit in the driveway this weekend, pretty exciting stuff
>>25455198what did you do to fix the engine running badly on 1% throttle?
Uh oh lads! The madman has bought yet another white Toyota!(what the fuck am I doing?)
>>25455486lowered the response time on the TPS from 20ms to 100ms increased the dTPS enrichment, lowered the enrichment threshold, and set it up so that when you stomp the gas it batch fires the injectorsThe last one really isnt necessary if you set up the tables right but I'm just trying to get it driveable
>>25455486Oh woops, I think I misread that. I thought you were asking about how I made it run when you stomp the gas pedalas far as fixing it at idle, I set the timing and tweaked the VE table
>>25425203Ayooo it's the dude with the meaty sidewalls
So I put new rod bearings in my brothers mk3 mr2 and I'm having a few issues with the timing chain. So I lined the marks on the chain up with the mars on the pulleys and the one on the crank too. With the timing cover on they are in line with the cover but when I turn it over by hand with the tensioner in the chain slacks between the two pulleys. Is this normal? Some people online say it might be because the tensioner runs off oil pressure so will be fine when running.I've turned it over like 50 times and the yellow marks don't go back to the pulley marks but the pulleys line up perfect eveytime when the crank is at tdcHere's a video of ithttps://files.catbox.moe/dtt60i.mp4
>>25457136The valve springs are always pushing on the cam lobes and trying to spin the camshaft one way or another, if you spin a single camshaft on it's own without the chain attached it will get really hard, then push itself forward, then get really hard again - as each set of cam lobes rolls over it's peak.Even with a tight belt you'll see a change in the tension as you turn the engine over by hand, if your engine runs a hydraulic chain tensioner (most chain engines do) then yes that's all fine and normal.
>>25457315ThanksI'm not entirely sure if it's hydraulic or not, it's a ratcheting type that you lock back and turn the crank counter clockwise a bit and it unlocks itself and springs out. I've used the last of my fipg on it so I really hope it don't have to come off again. The timing marks match good and it's got the same number of links between timing marks as it says to in the book so I don't see what else there is, maybe it is hydraulic, if it isn't it could just be a bad tensioner which we'll change after running it and seeing how it sounds. Planning to put it back in tomorrow so hopefully it's just how it is
>>25457549Sounds about right mate, the hydraulic tensioners always have a spring in them for preload and the good ones have ratchets to stop the chain flapping around on first startup before the oil pressure builds.
I am backit is now on the road, sort of. I only made it as barely drivable as it is for it to be able to be taken to the exhaust shop. Currently has a horrible alignment, running with no o2 sensor because I need a custom downpipe to clear the Camry engine mount, and brake lines that are so rusted it should be considered the 2nd coming of Christ because it is a miracle they hold pressure. Getting the exhaust done before the brake lines because I want to be able to run it for long periods of time so I can bleed the brakes, and I just wana get it out of the way. While it is at the exhaust shop I'll get the brake stuff together. I am going to replace the entire brake system, everything.Here is a road test video,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xc5Xj0Pacrc
oh hello, im new here!this is the thread i was looking forheres my hunk of junk ^^go guess what it istip: its rhd
>>25438171is it really yours?? so clean anon, absolutely love it ^^also had 100 rolla but sedan, still miss itrip ;-;
>>25458220Just getting it to drive down the street is always a major milestone for big project like that m8, good job.
>>25458299>guessM8 this is /ctg/ - we know what an X chassis looks like.
>>25458380okay dad ><name the exact model then we'll talk
>>25458395Well it's obviously an X80 innit, whether it's a JZX80, GX81 or an SX80 or one of the 10 other engines they stuck in the exact same car with different lights and badges I don't care enough to know
>>25458486So now that we're done swing our dicks which is it? Because they're pretty cool.
>>25458496you started it ^^yeah its gx81 chaserduh, 4chan captcha is a bitch
>>25458524I see cheap IS200 6 speed gearboxes on marketplace all the time which would go so good in this thing, but I think you guys only got IS300s over there so there goes that idea.
>>25456732>>25456744yepfunny thing is I wasn't even going for looks with the wheel+tire size, I just wanted lightweight 15x8 wheels to fit 225s on, but they ended up looking pretty neat on it
>>25458563indeed it would, my friend owns a gx71 on 1g-ge engine and 5speed manual, such a fkn beastbut 1 im broke 2 im fine with AT, works perfect, just gotta force myself to get the wrench and change the fluidhow do you already know where i from lol
>>25458612I'm just guessing you're a yankee since you implied cars are normally LHD.I'd love to run a 1G-GE because they sound awesome but they're a bit hard to find nowadays, I think most of them ended up at the scrapper.
>>25458637i dont even want to swap my FE, i love how it sounds unlike JZs and other yota engines, even tho it doesnt speed up this yacht so well (what i completely dont care about)ofc if it was jzx version i wouldnt complain but now i think ill leave it beim too old for all this i just want a stock car in perfect condition>yankeeyeah keep thinking that way idm ^^
>>25458701oof that car is in great nick. got an mx83 cressida i just finished up the head gasket on. took it for a WOT run up the back road twisties and damn it was fucken fun. People always drop jzs into these things but I love the 7M, it sounds amazing.
I have a JDM 4AGZE which I plan on putting a bigger crank pulley on but I don't know how well it'll take it - does anyone have experience with these? Do they need/are they compatible with the Grunt Box, or is there another way around the potential lean issue at high load, low RPMs? picrel
2nd gen 4runner occasional lurker hereI'm throwing in new inner and outer tie rods as well as a new idler arm and steering stabilizer.I suspect that either my wheel bearings are on their way out or my ball joints are, or both lol. Before digging into my suspension and steering, is there any way I am able to determine with reasonable confidence that it's either of the two components that have issue? The quick rundown is that my steering feels sloppy and loose, which I partly attribute to the steering components, but also the steering wanders left and right requiring constant autocorrection on the road, furthermore I picked the front end up and noticed that along the axis of the axle, both tires rock back and forth very slightly at the 12 and 6 - I suspect that it might be the bearings because the last time I packed them I didn't yet possess enough money to always have the right tools on hand so I guesstimated the bearing nut torque with a screwdriver and hammer, though I read online that wheel rocking could also be caused by bad ball joints too. I don't hear obvious squealing nor clunks when turning the wheel, so I don't think it's the ball joints.Also is it normal to be able to manually turn your wheels by hand somewhat with ease(and have the steering wheel correspondingly spin) with the front end raised up and car turned off (with the keys in to disengage the steering lock)?
>>25442595Depends where you are and if that's usd or cadI'd say that's an alright price in today's market for the PNW if the car really is in very good shape, mechanical and cosmetic, however be aware that selling it in the future may or may not be difficult because it's not 4wd, as well be aware that you are very limited in off road situations with any challenges beyond gravel roadsOther than that, I can't say I've heard anything specific about the 2wd variant of the 4runner of that generation, however that generation is generally very respectable for reliability assuming it has had at least minimal consistent maintenance done, and the 2rz (I think, maybe that's the 3rz in there) is respectable for power and gas mileage for what it is, and is also considered to be a solid engine
>>25462186I'd go ahead and do the tie rod ends, idler etc, have an alignment done, see if it still wandersAfter that, rock the tires at 3 and 9 with the steering wheel locked and see if you have play, if so, likely bearings. 6 and 12 only is usually a dead ringer for ball joints. They may also go bad with no squealing or clunks>>25456053Preparing for carmageddon! Or surviving it already depending on perspective>>25447988>>25458220That's awesome, both you guys getting up and running after so much work>captcha YYY2J
>>25462267Everything on the front suspension is new, outside the struts. I think its a mix of things. The previous alignment was also done on the original control arms, which when I took off one of the bushings just fell out. All the components are new, just not adjusted properly. I installed v6 knuckle assemblies as well from moog. I had to switch to v6 ones because I'm using v6 axles and e153. For some reason the wheels also ha e positive camber. Not sure why. Thinking the struts are still settling from being fully extended fir so long, not sure. Needs an alignment badly though
>>25462520Oh damn I'm retarded I thought your first (you) was for meThank you, much more work to be done. Soon I will havea full 3" 304 ss exhaust
Does anyone know if the 1zzfe needs the ignition timing set by a timing light like older cars with distributors? I can see on the crank pulley it's got a 0 and 10 degree mark but I dunno how you'd actually do it with no plug leads. Or is it all handled by the ECU and the vvt system?
>>25462677no as long as the cams are timed correctly in relation to the crank the cam angle sensor will sort it out
>>25462677lol what a setup!
Go the A60!https://files.catbox.moe/8dg5d8.mp4
>>25462972The guy I bought my A70 from had an A60 he was swapping a 2JZ-GE into. It was black and looked pretty cool.
So I contacted a place and got a dyno day and time scheduled for the SupraNow I just need to finishExhaustcharge pipingbrake linese brake cablesintercooler mount radiator mounttidy up the wiringin 9 weeksFeels like orange county choppers
>>25464990Sweet! All downhill from here
>nearly done fixing up Basedota>clutch starts slipping>coolant turning rusty again after 2 flushesFuck the previous owner, it's only got 50k miles and he's managed to fuck up the clutch and neglected everything but the oil.
>>25464990Nice, sounds like all that should be a cakewalk for ya. Can't wait to see it driving and what you do at the dyno.>>25467185Oh no it's bleeding! That's still pretty cool only 50k miles for an old Corolla like that.
>>25467949It's only got 50k miles but the previous owner clearly didn't take care of it, he just got the oil changed every 3k miles and declined every other maintenance item. When I bought it it already had a new radiator and brake master cylinder, because the original ones rusted out. You'd think he would've learned his lesson, but he never changed the brake fluid or used actual coolant, the thermostat was fucking rusted into 2 pieces. Tires were 30 years old too, timing belt overdue, leaking fuel pump, etc etcAt least the body is rust free, I'll spray wax everywhere to keep it that way.Good thing parts are cheap, I'm just replacing everything while I'm in there, so far I've got;-timing belt kit + acc belt-thermostat-tires-plugs + cap + rotor-all fluids + filters-full valve cover gasket kit + camshaft seal + both crank seals-full clutch kit-inner and outer CV boots-diff seals-fuel pumpI guess there's not much to left to break when I'm done installing the clutch
i might be actually retarded. just had a dream where my car's head bolts had come loose and i had to retorque them down top fucking kekbut it was at some weird night market/car meetup sort of place and there were lots of people, and i had the head sitting on a table and then some dude had tried "helping" by taking the studs and nuts out and cleaning it all, and then i lost my shit because i didnt want that lmfao
>>25468031>the thermostat was fucking rusted into 2 pieceswhen i did my head gasket the thermostat was completely missing its jiggle valve, i wasn't sure if it even had one to begin with. In the water bypass banjo fitting there was this weird clam-shaped metal piece just stuck in there. Looked way too big to be the jiggle valve, but I still wonder wtf it came from.
>>25468082I don't think it's too weird to dream about your car and driving it.I see dreams of driving my Corolla and something, or me, failing>consistent driving with traffic yet at some point failing to brake because the car simply won't stop>unreal speed when reversing out of my parking space>driving on summertires on snowy roads, good results and not>parked car buried in stupid amounts of snowBrake failure and snow are the major dream issues for me despite having no real life issues with them.
>>25468082>>25468147>dream about drifting or driving fast in one of my cars>dream tries to turn into a nightmare by making out my car is going to crash>"that's not the way my car handles, wtf is this shit?">realise I'm in some bullshit dream and wake up
>>25430792>still waiting for a complete car with a w-series to pop up. In the meantime lots little improvements. Likely going to sell a bike to put ~$2000 worth of T3 stuff into this.
>>25456732>>25458606That's tasty. I wish MR2s weren't so expensive now.
>>25468174I dream of endless understeer it is a fucking nightmare.
>>25469008Thanks, my main toolboxes are inside, this little box is ideal for my use, I put my most commonly used tools in it and because it's so low it won't ever topple over when I'm rolling it to my shitboxes, pretty big wheels allow me to roll it over rocks and shit.Maybe the biggest advantage is that as a no lift fag I don't always have to get up to access the upper drawers. Bit pricey in burgerstan though https://www.kctool.com/stahlwille-922n-wheely-box-with-drawers/
>>25448663>>25448786lel just did the ghetto rental at supercheap with their $80 timing light. guy didn't even ask me why, just put down the reason on the receipt as 'wrong product.' Definitely gonna do this more often.I guess on my particular head, smack in the center of the adjustment range for the dizzy was 12 degrees since that's what the timing light showed up when jumping TE1 and E1 pins. Dialled it back to standard toyota 10.On a side note, my auto trans seems to have codes 62, 63 and 64 (no. 1, 2 and 3 solenoids severed harness or short circuit) but I haven't checked if it's just leftover codes since it seems to be shifting somewhat ok. Only just seems to hang a bit occasionally when I'm accelerating while doing a sharp turn.

>>25468459Those vintage wheels are delicious! I haven’t seen an actual set in a while.>Shadow Spoke by Devil Japan for those curious
>>25472651yeah nah :)im not gonna pay 80 bucks for a light when i can get one for a quarter of the price that has more features. too bad fagbook sellers hardly ever respond
>>25472691Someone just sent me this the other day. Price is low IMO
>>25472873>too bad fagbook sellers hardly ever respondWell that's your problem isn't it cunt? Oh wait you'll just make it supercheap's problem instead because you're a nigger.
>>25473588>buttmad over timing lights
>>25473650buttmad over no tools wrenchlets with no respect shitting up /ctg/ yes
>>25473588>oh noooo the heckin poor corporation selling overpriced tools loses nothing gains nothing from a temporarily purchased timing lightof course you call us niggers because you know too well how to be one. you're right though fagbook sellers were my problem but they aren't anymore kek
>>25473795What you think they got that timing light back in the torn up packet and put it back on the shelf? You think they sent it back to China to get repackaged? They put it straight in the bin and it gets written off on their expenses list under "returns".A perfectly good timing light, in the bin, all because you're too tight to buy one.
>>25473558$14,000That's a ridiculous price and some fukr would steal those wheels. You can just get vintage JDM wheels from Croooober or something.
>>25472651>you only pay once and they last a lifetimeThis is true. I bought a vintage Sears Craftsman made-in-usa timing light for $46.10.
>>25468459please do NOT BUY shit from T3
i consistenly have terrible ideas
>>25474169Explain. I know about stuff like that their wheel hubs not working with stock dust shields, but what else?
>>25474012Pretty reasonable for a widened set like this. I would never pay more than like $1500 for a set of wheels ever because one rock chip would make me jump off a bridge. But a few years ago an OG set of wide ones went for something like 20k. >>25473780Well I have a timing light, just weird that you’re this upset about it. >>25474169Why not?My reason for going with them is that they make the only drop in coil-over for an x30. I’m not interested in chopping up my spindles for weld ons because they’re irreplaceable. They also make the only GOOD panhard rod for this car. The owner is an ass nozzle but I’m interested in hearing more.
>>25474229>>25474329the quality is average at best and sold at a premium price, dogshit customer service, shipping/handling times take close to a year>only GOOD panhard rodpicrel is their ae86 panhard from regular driving, didn't hit anything
Resealing the Corona, forgot to order this one transmission seal, what was it again? 25x37x5? >>25472676In Yurop they're cheaper, they're about 7-800 USD or so, I got mine for I think 50 Euro or so.
>>25473852>torn up packetno, they didn't send it back to china to get repackaged, because i repackaged the fucking thing myself. it's obvious you've never actually bought or even seen one of these things hahaha. They conveniently put it in an easy open clamshell that can be closed back up again with push detents. I didn't even have to take off that little black wire thing that ties up the bundle of cable together.But since you're so hot and bothered about it, why don't you go around and buy up all the timing lights that have sat on the shelves for years to make sure they get loved and caressed.lmao you wanna complain about perfectly good shit being written off, work at a dealership or a hospital. The amount of perfectly intact parts and consumables that get thrown out due to being written off, or single-use only, would give you an aneurysm.
>>25473852>>25475207which reminds me, a month or two ago the forklift dealership near me threw out an entire crate engine and transmission all because it had sat in the warehouse for five years, had to be written off. so get fucked when you complain about me being wasteful by putting a little timing light i bought, back together as if it had never been touched, and returning it.
>>25475195what engine? look at an electronic parts catalogue and find out what part number is for that seal. can then punch that number into rockauto, sometimes it shows dimensions of aftermarket equivalents
>>254752194A-F, with the C52 tranny. Catalogues were wrong on the clutch, they all claimed 200mm while it's a 212mm, fortunately I did some autistic digging and found out they were wrong.
>>25475207>but other people are wasteful too so it's ok for me to do the obviously wrong thing alsoNigger tier logic
>>25475269>completely ignore the part where i put everything back the way i got itconfirmed dropped-on-head retarded
>>25475223try https://toyota.epc-data.com/ it's never let me down, except for when there were parts specific to aussie made toyotas lel. they have different regions too.
>>25475223212mm clutch on a 4a-f?
>>25472608update: tranny error codes were just stored in memory, ecu fuse out for 30 secs, a 200 km run and all good.
Guys, where’s Miku?
>>25478857He posts among us, looks like he cbf with the trip
>>25478857Dead like frolo and hako
got da bucket for da martooIts ok so far but I already miss the stock seat, I still need to mess around with the mounting bracket I made since the seat is now shifted an inch to the left and its really annoying driving. But the extra support somewhat makes it worth it since I got it to be my racecar.
installed some parts store quickstruts yesterday bros. the ride quality is about the same as the xx year old kybs but at least the humming is gone at high speed
>>25478857>>25478875Yep, just been busy and distracted
>>25475344I came across that one, yeah, but another one contradicted EPC Data, turns out EPC Data was correct though.>>25476683Yes, it's bolted back on, just waiting on my final parts delivery and then I can put the driveshafts back and drive
Well bros I did some more test driving on the supra and I think the first gear thrust washer in the R154 is brokenRather than fucking around and fixing it I just ordered an entire T56 swap setup from grannas racingRIP my wallet but at least the supra will be invincible and the 6 speed is nice. Will be doing 60 mph in 6th gear at 1800 rpmGoing to try to remove the trans without yanking the engine. I'll let you know how it goes
>>25482056Is that the price for a stock or built one? Also what final drive are you gonna run with it? I'm interested to see how you like it, too.
>>25482530That's for a whole kittransbell housingtrans cross membertrans mountshifterclutchflywheelshift knob hydraulic release bearingnew master cylinderlinetrans slip yokeThe trans itself is only $3100 which is nice in case I ever blow one up (but they are good for 700 ft lbs of torque so that seems unlikely)Final drive is 3.55
What's your guys' go to place for oem floor mats that the dealer doesn't sell anymore? Can't seem to find some from a reputable site for my Camry.
Hello /ctg/, I'm the guy that posted a busted up wine red '87 DX AE86 last year, it's been a while since I lurked here and I've been having fun on my gray SR5 AE86 that I got last October for $4k. I'm the second owner, she's got a working sunroof, manual rack and she was overall in good condition when I got her. Had to work over the brakes with my old man but after that she was running fantastic, we got a 2 inch exhaust on her, seems to be straight piped but I'm thinking of doing more to unclog that lil 4A-C. Wish I'd read the thread sooner and asked about T3 part quality, as I ended up splurging on their steering rack. I'm planning on installing it in the next couple of weekends whenever I have time and don't have a bunch of shit to do around the house, is the install any difficult for a wrenchlet with help?Other than that, I'm happy with her as a daily, however I can't take her out in nights and for musical pursuits, I believe I'd mentioned I live in Puerto Rico and these cars are still candy for thieves around here, so I'm planning to get a manual SUV in the meantime. Unfortunately this being Toyota country, 4runners are out of the question considering the majority are 3VZ-Es and slushboxes plus they're stupid expensive. Kinda stupid to ask here, but do any of you guys have any suggestions for a cheap 90's manual SUV? I was considering a 1994 - 1997 4cyl Isuzu Rodeo, most I've seen in the classifieds are usually manuals, but any other suggestions are welcome.Pic related, my meme shitbox. She came with the original 7 spoke SR5 rims but I like the twincam rims better, plus if these get stolen I still have the originals.
>>254832107AFE swap itsurely you can get one for peanuts
>>25483210>'unclog' 4A-C with exhaustkek
>>25479862nope still hums at speed, probably gonna replace the front wheel bearings next and see if that does anything>>25481833yeah thats weird as fuck. how many bolts did the flywheel have? i read online somewhere that toyota was building 4A engines with 4AG internals
>>25483531Only 6 unfortunately. When I noticed the larger than usual clutch I briefly thought they'd be using a forged 4A-G crank, but I'm 2 bolts short.
>>25483210The rack should be easy enough, but you're probably going to need an alignment after>cheap 90's manual anythingNot sure if that exists anymore, are you looking for an SUV for interior space or 4wd or both
anyone knows where can i find 90s toyota brochures? like wiring schematics, parts catalog, cars catalogs (with optional stuff, etc)
i am debating on doing a full custom exhaust on the paseo or buying the stock catback with test pipe, I bought the ebay stainless steel headers since they were the only option manifold here's hoping the fitment isn't dogshite>>25483210>T3 steering rackit's basically unusable for drifting, it's way too quick>unclog that lil 4A-Cjust slap the 4A-C head on a 7AFE bottom end and make stock power instead of paying some cuck $1K for a 112hp 4a with 2,000,000 miles
>>25491298>just slap the 4A-C head on a 7AFE bottom endI think you've got that the wrong way around m8
sorry i dont have a toyota
>>25491321i guess google is brokenhttps://youtu.be/2DO58_mqnIs
>>25492192But anon... the 7AFE head is about 9001 times better than the 4A-C head
Finally went and tidied up my wiring loom, long overdue
>>25493111Now that I have a fuel system that wasn't desgined by an insane person there's about a billion or so emissions systems that either no longer exist or no longer function
>>25493114And here's all the wires and assorted bullshit that were no longer doing anything useful. And this is just wires, plugs, and 1 relay. Just imagine how much of it was already removed in the carb swap itself.
>>25493117Wow that's a lot of bullshit gone. By the way did you notice any power gains after taking all that bullshit off or no real difference?
>>25493864No noticeable difference. It was all just dead weight ultimately, no real current flowing through anything.
>>25495216Well cleaning up the engine bay must be really nice. Both to look at and work on. Ever plan on going EFI again or are you just gonna stay with the carb?
>>25498333If one day it's gonna have EFI it's gonna be in the form of a 2ZZ, but that'll be years and years down the line.
>>25498781Why plan that tomorrow when you could easily 4E-FE swap it today?
>>25498784Eh, the 4E-FE doesn't really do much for me. Seems like a lateral move.
>>25498798Yeah but surely it's cheap and easy - just rig your vacuum advance dizzy up to it and get another danst manifold to run your carbies on it
