    Sheepers other MS75 crown coupe

    ive been flat out working on the sedan so i haven't done fuck all to this lately. today i installed the brand new carb and got it running. i took it for a drive to the end of the road and it seems to go well. still heaps of shit to sort out to get it to run nicely and idle properly and all that but its a good start. ive got electronic ignition coming for it this week and now dizzy cap and other shit, you know how it goes. anyway i cant wait to get rid of the sedan so i can get this thing sorted. its got no exhaust at the mo so its a bit hard to have it running to tune it and shit while its making such a ruckus. first job will be new exhaust. i think ill copy the zorst i made for the MS51, its got 1 hot dog about mid way and nothing else. it sounds choice and does the most massive backfires i have ever heard so replicating that would be choice. 2018-09-23_05-36-49 by sheepers, on Flickr

    drove it to work. its going for a warrant this arvo so i had to make sure it would actually make it. no drama other than its only a 4 speed which is quite weird. 2018-09-21_06-33-10 by sheepers, on Flickr

    over night parts from china. ordered the carb Tuesday night, delivered Friday arvo. thats pretty legit. it looks way better than i thought it would, it actually looks like its well made. 2018-09-15_06-14-18 by sheepers, on Flickr so i strapped this on and it ran like shit, Nick the good cunt sparky came over and we fucked around with it. turns out the points were fucked and so were the plugs, put some new plugs and points in it and it runs like a dream, its like fucking new. we went for a hoon around the block and its running mint, stoked! so this friday its getting a warrant and then itll be on tardme ASAP. 2018-09-15_06-14-27 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-09-15_06-15-04 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-09-15_06-14-40 by sheepers, on Flickr

    i had booked this thing in for a warrant last friday but while i was driving it around here to make sure it would actually make it to the warrant place something changed and it started running like a pile of shit. i had to pull the pin on the warrant check and try and figure out what had happened. as it turns out two things went wrong at the same time. the fuel pump started loosing pressure and the weird arse diaphragm thnigo on the side of the carb shit itself. the carb is off a later model smog motor and it got all sorts of vacuum shit all over it. it was working mint, it started like a dream but its fucked now. i went through the pile of fucked carbs i have and surprisingly enough they're all fucked. couldn't make one that worked so i bit the bullet and bought a china copy off ebay. fuck knows when it'll turn up but i wont be able to get a warrant for it until then. gay. i did however send a pair of rear springs off to get compressed so the back will sit level.

    Yea you'll find pretty much everyone that's strapped a uz to the front of a W55-8 has had the same result. Especially in a heavy car like a crown. Second gear, or possibly third will Chernobyl at some point. R154 is your boy.

    tidied up some factory steels and hubcaps, fitted some new tyres. also under-sealed all inside the wheel arches. if anyone wants the shit wheels that were on this car then you can have them. pick them up and take them away. no matter how much i try and ignore it the back sits too high and look fucking stupid so im going to get some factory springs compressed so it sits level and ill get some shorter shocks. 2018-09-06_06-53-06 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-09-06_06-53-18 by sheepers, on Flickr also,THIS CAR IS FOR SALE SO IF YOU WANT IT PM ME.

    My Toyota Crown 5m situation

    tbh the stealth brand electronic conversion kits are far better than old clapped out toyota stuff. if the coil, module and dizzy aren't exactly the right match it wont work. they make one for a F series landcruiser which has the same dizzy as early crown. the dizzy caps are the same as well, actually its the clip on dizzy caps that are the same, the screw on ones are different. anywho the stealth kit is far easier and will work out of the box. i spent ages trying to get the stock toyota stuff to work on two occasions and its a ball ache.

    got some carpets from autodec. they fit but not very well tbh. typical autodec really. anywho they are in the car. i also filled the doors and sills with Dinitrol and put the door cards back on. and ive got more of the dash back together. and i bought some mirrors for it too. 2018-08-26_12-16-30 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-08-26_12-16-40 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-08-26_12-16-49 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-08-26_03-38-29 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-08-26_03-38-42 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-08-26_03-38-50 by sheepers, on Flickr
