  1. Get your back operated on. Get it fixed. Don't fuck around waiting for it to heal because it won't. Get it fixed. You'll find your motivation right after the surgery, I can promise you that. As for the cams, I bought them years ago. I think they were about 1200$ but I could be wrong. I got them from kelford and whatever they list the price as is what I probably paid
  2. So I've had surgery on my back about 3 weeks ago and everything is going great. Lots of walking mainly. I have ticked a couple of little things off though. Injectors. So the stock height injector made the fuel rail clash with the supercharger mount plate. I got some "shorty" injectors that allowed me to drop the fuel rail by about 30mm. I had to mod the bottom O ring seat to take the stock Toyota crush style o ring and now is all working. Need to make clamps to hold the rail down and it's done. 2019-11-20_05-19-33 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-11-20_05-19-22 by sheepers, on Flickr also, WHY THE HORSE FUCKING CUNT CANT YOU LINK A FLICKR IMAGE ON A PHONE???????????????????
  3. The one they use is from Al's gt86 turbo kit. It's a good little unit
  4. Ive said it before and I'll say it again, I fucking live this car. Great to see you able to get some time to work on it.
  5. putting motor back together. sump is all back on. the sump had some ground based accidents previously so i made a thing to stop it getting such a kicking. 2019-10-05_12-44-55 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-10-05_12-44-48 by sheepers, on Flickr then i continued on with the rest of the assembly. i put some playdoh on the piston and checked valve clearance which was all good. got the water and oil pumps on and the heads. the toyota full gasket set does not have lip seals in it which sucks balls so i have no front crank seal, which menas i cant put the timing belt on. 2019-10-05_04-32-32 by sheepers, on Flickr
  6. short block is finished and back home. now its time to start the assembly. need to check a few things like valve/piston clearance and whatnot. i go in to hospital for back surgery on the 24th and id like to get the engine sealed us before then. 2019-10-04_08-00-51 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-10-04_08-00-40 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-10-04_08-00-32 by sheepers, on Flickr
  7. the china re-manufactured 4M carbs i bought were alright, the base plate was out of flatness by about 0.15mm so they had a vacuum leak. once i fixed that (hylomar on the gasket) they worked mint. still rolling on the coupe daily with no issues so far.
  8. take it out. you'll regret it later if you don't. especially when it starts leaking and you can't buy any bits for it. patching a sunroof isn't as hard as people make out, anyone with decent panel skills should be able to sort it. i know a guy but hes eye wateringly expensive. hes very good, i guess that's why hes so spendy. if you get stuck PM me.
  9. did the bushes in the rear today. nothing special, usual shit of drilling out the rubber, cutting the sleve then smashing it out. new bushed just push in. haven't drive it on the motorway yet to gauge betterness but given how squishy and fucked the old bushed were i suspect it'll be a big step forward. 2019-09-28_06-51-37 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-28_06-51-27 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-28_06-51-19 by sheepers, on Flickr
  10. 2 months later i have all the bits to rebuild the bottom end. the heads are already finished and i have them back. parts, 9 to 1 CR Ross forged pistons (the cunts will not change the value of the parts on the shipping invoice so keep that in mind when deciding to use them or not) eagle H beam rods and ARP rod bolts ARP main cap studs and bolts new genuine Toyota oil pump theres heaps of other shit too but you get the picture. block will now be bored and honed to 88mm. rotating assembly will get balanced and ill get the short block back. then its reassembly time. good days. or maybe not good days. going in to hospital to get back surgery in about a month so that will fuck all progress for a while............... 2019-09-19_07-59-37 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-19_07-59-22 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-19_07-58-23 by sheepers, on Flickr
  11. so 1 x generic falcon tap and some cutting and welding and we're back in business. tap is in the engine bay and its fairly ugly but there isn't fuck all i can do about that. 2019-09-19_08-00-10 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-19_08-00-03 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-19_07-59-55 by sheepers, on Flickr 2019-09-19_07-59-47 by sheepers, on Flickr
  12. stories from M lyfe. the heater tap started leaking. the heater tap is inside the passengers foot well. like any true M series connoisseur i know it was leaking within seconds of it happening because i smelt it. i knew, instantly, the the M was about to try and fulfill the prophecy of its lineage, and its tradition, and attempt to BHG. but old M masters like myself are made of sterner stuff than that, it'll take a better trick that that old chestnut to bring the prophecy to life. so, i caught it before it had a chance to get hot, no harm done. MS75 heater taps are vacuum operated, incorporate a 90 degree bend in them and just to really make sure there is no way of substituting it with something available its closed with no vacuum. all available vacuum operated taps that i have found are open with no vacuum. there are no taps available that event fit in the space available, let alone have the right vacuum configuration. so ill just have to buy a gates one, cut and weld the vacuum actuator to be on the other side of the lever and put in the engine bay somewhere. if i can stand up for long enough to do that job ill do that tonight. 2019-09-19_07-33-00 by sheepers, on Flickr
  13. Righto, so ive been driving this to work every day for the last month ir whatever. Hasn't missed a beat. Its fucking slow. Fuck me is it slow but that's not such an issue, it's fucking cool and I like driving it. The front end is a bit all over the show If you have to hit the brakes on the motorway so ive replaced all the bushes. Castor arm bushes and upper inner bushes were completely fucked. Im fairly certain they were original ones. I'll do the back next weekend and put thre disk brake diff in at the same time.
  14. i spray it all the time. mask and glasses obviously. if im spraying something large i have the door down and let it settle before opening the door again. something small i usually dont bother. 10 years and no complaints from the neighbors so far. dont spray clear with the door open though, that shit stinks and goes for miles.
