    Mechanical to electric speedo

    Or could i make a stepper motor work and make it fit into the back of the cable drive?

    Mechanical to electric speedo

    So im looking at changing my speedo from mechanical to electrical. Currently my cable does a sharp turn out of the gearbox And wobbles the needle +\~ 15km , also im pretty sure i need to change the gear on the driver. So im thinking change to electric sensor - run to link ecu ( change to correct output) - dash speedo. Do i just need to find a electrical speedo with the same sweep and cut to fit? Gearbox is a w57. Thanks

    With installing itbs, i needed to run an aircleaner. Im not a fan of socks and the SQ Eng trumpets dont allow individual socks to be fitted. Keeping with the theme of the factory look. I made an aircleaner. I copied the original 4m box in the way that it seals and the lid clips on. Although large ,it lets me keep the trumpets. All thought out and made by myself, with hand tools,shrinker/stretcher and a beadroller. Can anyone guess what the lid was made from?

    This may have also been causing fueling problems . This is the factory pickup from inside the tank. The pipe is about 12mm ID but right at the end its flattened off and is less that 1/2 the size ,glad its gone now

    the lasting outing in the crown i had fuel issues’s . I had over 1/2 tank and it was just surging. So bit the bullet and cut my spare tank apart and have fitted a in tank pump and baffles. pump assembly is from a Subaru with an aftermarket DW200 pump fitted. Modified the assembly to fit the crown tank,things are getting tight. Also had to machine up a extension on my pickup/filter so it sat at the bottom of the tank

    Toymotas - 1969 MS53 Crown Wags

    Ahhhh progress I randomly one day last year stubbled across a guy on FB selling newer crown parts,in the back of a pic was a ms53. I messaged him and he was willing to sell me some bits,after nearly a year of organising and conversions I imported 8 boxes of parts!! 4 doors,a tailgate,a superdeluxe benchseat,trim pieces and other parts that my car needed for the resto. This car has been abit of an international affair .being 1 of 2 known in NZ ive had to get used and nos parts from Thailand, finland, norway, the netherlands, japan and canada . Hopefully that should be it for now.... for anyone wondering i used CFR line in auckland to bring the parts in. Super helpful and great pricing

    The 1st day of spring ,sunny and warm and im in the garage under the car fixing my exhaust as the last time i took it out it ripped my automatic gate rail clean out of the ground. Have fixed the rail and got stuck in today shifting the exhaust higher ,got an extra 30mm out of it. Took it for a test and all is good now . Next issue is the front sits lower. It sat fine with the old motor/box , but maybe a 2jz/w57 combo is heavier. I had originally got the springs compressed. I have another set of factory springs ,but with little budget at the moment im thinking of cutting them. Should be stiffer than compressing. Only problem is i havnt chopped springs before,it needs to be 25mm higher.How do you know how many coils to remove? I also have more camber than I remember, are ms112 lower arms longer?
