  1. Ah man, this makes me envious. parked outdoors and it hasn't rotted to pieces. Good to see yours on the road! I tried a bunch of wheels and found the rear can tuck a fair amount (8") under there with the correct offset rims without guard rub, limited by the leaf springs. Fronts, not so easy. Helps to wind in some neg camber on strut top if you can get away with fitting camber plates. Settled on 14x6.5 fronts and 14x7 rears til i find some 8's.
  2. noice noice. Good size for the home shed. Did you manage to score some tooling with it? chucks? 3 jaw, 4 jaw, face plate, dead and live centers?
  3. direct link to some of the media Saret vision https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=170366216345385&set=a.3547135222001784 Mike Geater's walk around Media by Matt https://www.facebook.com/mediabymatt/posts/3578428212282854?__cft__[0]=AZXJovRiUEcUU5v29s819hGcw4c4WM_hXWL1eo2jl60e1NxKqWEqVD0UnAIR3BixF9NorIRBd7Eg1bzpsyexLmxIPpGJ2Py7fr79AFGwvifJy1v_7FLaKQc3GTFyB-3AZYZssdB-Jw3MIu6A9fE0B9MKGDqoi_ZCViIrYJK1dMhZig&__tn__=-UK-R G Omori Nakazato
  4. haha yes yes. newborn baby life.... been meaning to post this on forums. Tomorrow guys! 270 Oteha Valley Road, Albany, Auckland, opposite MT10. carpark to the left of reserve. https://goo.gl/maps/4RyQ39CiPr35L8QM8 2021 facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/262888545178729/ Hope to see yas there
  5. Cheers all for attending. Yeah sorry was late notice posting details, but the date is always the same 3rd sunday of January. (kumeu weekend). next new year meet will be 17th Jan 2021, put it in your calendar? Check the facebook link in first post, theres some pics in there already. Also looking to do an autumn meet this year, end of march or easter weekend. This page is usually updated first once i organise a meet ----> http://jap-olds.nz/
  6. Tomorrow! Weather is mint. Theres a bunch of cafes across from the entrance at 'the goodside' so park up and grab a bite/drink. See yas there!
  7. Venue is Smales Farm, off northcote road, Auckland. Same place as 'caffiene n classics'. Next to air nz building. https://www.google.com/maps/@-36.7858577,174.7542176,17z Has coffee and food on site, just across the road at Goodside. im parking up, grabbing a coffee then hanging round the carpark for yarns.
  8. The Annual New Year Japanese & Oldschool meet 2020 11am - 2pm Sunday 19th January 2020 Venue: Smales Farm, off northcote rd, Auckland. (On the north shore). Cruise points, meet 10.15am Greenlane McD's or old Westgate mall outside starbucks (mall with tenpin). Gather together and make the call when to head off 10.40ish. jap-olds.nz https://www.facebook.com/events/804363923396447/ This annual car meet is held every 3rd Sunday of January in Auckland NZ. (put it in your calendars as i tend to organise these last minute) For 2020 it's Sunday 19th January. 11am - 2pm. Admission is free. Spectators welcome. The event is aimed loosely toward pre 90's Japanese and Euro vehicles. But this is not strict at all. Bring what you've got. Have a yarn, check out other rides. No booze, no skids, no stupidity, keep it legal, that's all we ask. Catch ya's there!
  9. Another plug not often mentioned in conversions is the oxygen sensor check plug. usually found near firewall on exhaust side. it's a 2pin plug that connects to vf pin of ecu and e1 wire. Its not critical to the engine running but keeping it means you can diagnose a faulty oxy sensor. or even shorten wires back to near the ecu under dash where it could still be accessed.
  10. Ah sweet theres quite a few wires that may need to be integrated into the dash from the engine loom and that cluster diagram shows what connects where. Assuming with the 3au gone you'll be replacing the original engine loom that has oil pressure switch, water temp sensor and coil wire to tacho? Also adding in the check engine light and speed sensor from dash to ecu (gains 500rpm on the limiter at speed, well it did on a 20v anyway). Theres a plug near the ecu plugs on the engine loom that connects to the dash wiring, and all those things listed above and possibly the STA and COR might part of that bunch of wires. Sorry been a while since i did one. Does your main relay show on it somewhere a printed diagram of the internals and the pin numbers? From that you can tell which wires are the switch part and which wires are for the coil (coil inside the relay).
  11. If using ae85 dash wiring... do you have a wiring diagram for it? i had a bit of a google but only found ae86/4age stuffs. ie original toyota workshop manual to download and engine manuals https://www.hachiroku.net/servman which covers the efi wiring but couldnt see reference to the 3au emissions ecu specifically . its reasonably easy to trace wiring once you've got a matching diagram to follow But id be wary of splicing into power to an ecu that is half disconnected from the engine without knowing where the wiring comes from?! (Emissions ecu). Generally a fat white wire going into a fuse box is the 12v+ power feed and is only fused at the battery which needs to be stepped down in fuse size to be safe. So yeah can use the Stop fuse for constant power. I dont see any reason not to use that plug-in fuse splitter thingee. even better if it uses a 2nd fuse to power the splice. chuck a 15amp fuse in for ecu BATT pin and job done. Im thinking the 30A ign fuse is too grunty for ecu power source. Do you plan to setup a "main relay" as per ae86 wiring? then basically wire it as it would factory? There's a few things that get power from it in the 86 wiring and its good to share the load instead of running it all through the ignition switch. I havent had a geez at ae92 wiring diagram but will need to identify if coil and injectors are powered by a relay or via ignition switch. 86 diagrams seem to show both coming from the switch but i recall ae101 had a bunch of stuff on one and a bunch on the other. had black/orange and black/red wiring to differentiate between the two power sources in ecu loom. One (assumimg switch) came out of the fwd loom around the front end of injectors whereas relay power came out at the fwd engine bay fuse box. Also, the +B and +B1 pins on the ecu are joined together on the circuit board so only need to supply one of them with switched power from either a main relay or ignition switch via 15A fuse.
  12. Download and print out the matching pinout for your ecu (post it here too so we know what you're referring to). do the same for the ae92 ecu loom if possible. Could work it out from the pinout, but without knowing how it works it'll confuse ya. getting hold of a toyota yellow book workshop manual for the ae9 would be great, so you can understand the electrical systems. The alt wiring size should be fine unless youre running a big sound system or electric power steer, then the current draw increases heaps and youd want a bigger batt and alt anyway. the extra draw from a fuel pump and injectors arent huge. You'll be splicing out the alt wiring anyway as its on the other side of the engine. Also you're going from an external regulator to an internal. you can use the existing wiring but will need to change the lengths to suit the new position. could always upgrade the big white alt wire to the B terminal if you find the ae9 wire is bigger than the ae85. its in the ae9 engine loom anyways so youll prob end up using whats there and make it connect to the existing 85 alt loom or run it direct to battery, where ever that may be. If the new alt has a sense wire, then you may find it needs to be added in. external regs dont usually have it. its one of the 3 wires in the alt 3pin plug (not the charge lamp or ig wires) ant it also connects to the battery. Yeah you could just connect it to the big B terminal but youll get a lower charge voltage under load. i havent personally done ae92 loom yet, but if its anything like ae101/111 youll have extra stuff to deal with like a starter relay, which if wired correctly also connects to the STA pin of the ecu. The diagnostic plug has a few extra wirings in it but i cant imagine youd ever notice a weight difference by removing it. you can check things like if the oxy sensor is faulty without having to tap into a wire somewhere or the back of the ecu.. its right there on the firewall etc.
  13. Hmm i can help as ive done a few. Are you in the south island? To help us help you, tell us what exactly you want running on this thing. Pretty much all the engine loom wiring has a purpose unless it was originally an auto. Ie: are you going to run the diagnostics plug? Are you going to use a circuit open relay? Do you want power running off the correct relays as intended by toyota or are you adding in some? do you want to extend the ecu loom or add in a firewall junction plug? Do you want the dash to flash error codes? Are you changing alternators - the type may determine how to wire it. Circuit open relay are piss easy to source from a wrecker. make sure it shows a diagram on the side of the circuit inside and see that the pins are easily identified (labeled 30, 86, 87 etc). and get one that has a plug and some wiring off it so you can splice into it. Ideally you'd source ae86 full car loom and swap the lot but yeah, not easy.
  14. Pics up on the facebook page. meet started off a bit quiet with a sprinkle of rain on the drive in. Didnt rain though, plenty cars turned up and i ended up getting sunburnt, again. was a good meet! some dickheads ripped up the tarmac though on the way out. not cool
  15. 12th New Year Jap oldschool meet. 20th January 2019, 11am - 2pm Massey Uni, University Ave, Albany Auckland, tier carpark outside 'the ferguson'. This is an annual event held on the 3rd sunday of January. It happens to also be Kumeu Hot Rod show weekend. Loosely based on classic Japanese and Euro oldschool cars . pre 90's preferably.. But that is not strict at all. Bring your car, have a yarn, and wear sunscreen coz she's usually a scorcher! Cruise to event, meeting at either Greenlane McD's or old Westgate outside starbucks 10am ish, depart 10.30am. Those in attendance make the call when to depart. No booze, burnouts or stupidity please.

  16. Id suggest option 2 on the rear arch patch. easier to hide the weld when it's on the arch and flat panels are more likely to warp when welding (would pretty much guarantee it will). Dab each stitch weld with a damp rag to cool it and weld in different areas to let the previous weld cool. otherwise that panel will buckle.
  17. Looking forward to tomorrow! Might even be an icecream truck
  18. https://www.facebook.com/events/192124088008602/ When: Sunday 21st January 2018. 11am - 2pm. (starts thinning out by 1pm usually) Where: University Ave, Massey Uni Campus, Auckland. middle tier carpark outside 'The Ferguson' bar. Cruise meetup points at the usual places... Greenlane McD's and Westgate outside ASB, 10.15am, depart 10.30ish. Someone in attendance gather those there and make call to depart. For previous meet galleries and FB posts.. www.jap-olds.nz
  19. Re chain tensioner... just checking that you know it is adjustable? rattle upon startup can often be cured with a tighten. 5kg of force on the spring loaded piston in the end of it should move it 0.5mm. (after rotating the crank clockwise to put the chain slack on the tensioner side). also the tensioner are cast iron and break easy so no tapping or leaning on it. Do you has 18rg workshop manual?
  20. sweeet meet guys n gals. cheers! and even the weather turned out well considering the carnage the preceeding night eh. ps.. alistair your 20 fricken rules!
  21. Accuweather saying 55% shower at 1pm so good to go.
