  3. VDO do a nice electric scavenge pump, will find the details and post it up
  4. Had a rocker adjuster come loose sounding like an angry dwarf with a pickaxe stuck in the top end, easy enough fix didnt break anything and was just down the road from home. Decided to throw some more $$ in the because turbo bucket, brought a new 50mm wastegate to sort out the angry boost pixies, Booked for back on the dyno the week before drag day....
  5. assuming its got the standard 25d4 lucas dizzy (like my old 73 had), you can buy off the shelf electronic conversions for the factory dizzy as they are the same internally as every other mini blmc etc 25d4 dizzy, nice and easy swap to ditch the points
  6. Thanks, already got that one it dont show detailed enough assembly of the throttle valve and valve body, all the pieces fell out when we pulled it apart.
  7. Hey All got a broken 83 corona decorating my lawn at the moment, my mate brought it with a blown auto (previous owner rotated the rear tyres too rapidly). we have replaced the burnt up clutch packs and steels in the trans, now have somehow stuffed up the valve body/ throttle valve and it drives but wont shift out of 1st. (it shifted before we took it apart) anyone know their way around these transmissions or have a decent schematic of the valve body transmission is an Aisin warner 03-50 A40D 3 speed + O/D pic of actual car, (may be for sale soon)
  8. Cheers, was super happy with how it went, I had only driven it about 400km and dyno time (and about 10km on the replacement gearbox) before doing gumboot. will be good to see what it can do once i sort the wastegate out, the valiant do the whole run no problems?
  9. @Shakotom And to think i had started work on a particular HZ ute... its a good thing I returned the HZ back to Chris and done this one instead
  10. Sure goes alot better than it used to, lots of $$ add up fast tho doing an engine thats not commonly boosted Turbos A TA3410 (t3/t4) AR 0.70 compressor and 0.48 turbine housing, spools up nice and fast
  11. Passed clean sheet thru cert so stoked with that, brought myself a new toy so wish i had done it sooner. Took it up to Protune to chuck on the hub dyno... and my waste gate is too small, spiking 18psi of angry boost pixies at 3500rpm, aiming to run 7psi base with control up to 12psi to avoid splitting the crank from the block, ah well least the tune is now safe till i can fit up a larger gate. Oh also the camaro t5 gearbox i had fitted was stuffed so in a week had a commodore v6 t5 input shaft modified to fit, fabricated a new mount, bolted that up last wednesday and drove 1200km around northland for gumboot rally over the weekend, which Im super happy with how the car went, super responsive and torquey down low even with a low MAP/RPM limit, plus all the Spooley turbo noises
  12. got it all pieced back together and running ready for Cert and a tune, also picked up a mint set of 16x8.5 &16x9.5 Vette wheels
  13. finally got a use for my VS HSV seats, painted the bay, and wired up the factory dash to be fully functional
