  1. Amayama are buying/onselling off OEM's direct in their home countries. They are stuck with database updates from OEM's (who don't give a shit about old parts), I buy lots of Honda shit for the daily from them and the stock listings are mint always get what you want at 1/4 local prices. OId mate rockauto controls the stock so they should have a tip top database.

    Yup I would have a practice before doing it again on anything important. Usually it goes on pretty thick and the only thing that fucks it up is the cold/damp, anything below like 15 degrees will slow it down lots IMO. But 4 days is pretty extreme. In warm weather you should be able to sand that stuff on the same day and it should really always set hard in the pot overnight.
  3. Yeah a few cam swaps I have messed with on bucket setups you bang them in and magically it all works out fine measurement wise. I don't know much about cams but I would guess that good aftermarket ones have base circles similar enough to stock that it stays in spec
  4. Dunno are F1 ports dimpled? not the old ones you can see IRL. Paint/stickers were smooth also. Im sure we will see the result on garage 4age soon, dimpled bigport owns smallports.

    Strip disc and wire wheel time.

    Some old paint seals up mint under epoxy primer (almost all old factory paint I have messed with is fine). If it’s real shit and reacting it probably needs to fuck off anyway. Start grinding
  7. Yeah and after that you have to be some kind of race car engineer type to know about the flow through the ports and how that effects combustion chamber mixing and all that. In general though Yamaha tried and eneded up back at 4v per cyl with racing things probably for a reason. A good blacktop 20v goes hard for what they are though etc.
  8. Yes I have heard many a barry yarn that they need bigger valves, not sure but didn't think there is much room for that carry on.
  9. Not many 80's auto hiaces around anymore. Best bet to just hit-up and call every wrecker in Australia that has old shit. All of them will have done 300,000km
  10. Yeah what engine etc. Some will be harder to track down a bell-housing that others. People threw away the A43 etc autos like crazy but they are pretty good units, a overdrive and lockup version without computer control being the holy grail.
  11. We have a exhaust on this yet? eat up those 4ages with all those exhaust side gainz.
  12. The old shit is Butyl tape stuff I think, can be replaced with urethane 100%
  13. A pro will use a urethane based widow sealant. You can do the rear windows with the urethane, there is a art to getting it nice and not all squish out. You can use bits of foam shit to get it all sitting in the right place.
  14. They run a normal Toyota shit, if its from the 90's then A340 and if its older then the A43 etc. Bellhousings hard to find most people have made something to use other boxes.

    Edit what Torton says look at the data sheet. The urethane primer I used you wet sand to 600 or whatever, much nicer than dry. Assume we are talking urethane primer?
  16. Spencer

    PAINT THREAD

    Yes if you want it to be smooth. It will stick all the way to like 600/800 is the norm I think, don't think I have ever used over 400/600. It would stick well enough even if you just scuffed with scotch brite and painted.

    Its all garbage! Rust primers suck at rust converting and suck at being a primer. Worst of both worlds. Same for weld through primer, chuck it in the bin. 2 part epoxy holds heat better and burns off less if you let it cure 24/48h. Just rename the thread to buy some 2 part epoxy primer and apply to clean abraded/acid washed metal thx.

    Anyone actually tested these single part rust primers? like put them outside and then sand them back? or sand them back at all? the 2k epoxy primer beats them all.

    Brunox has worse adhesion than 2k epoxy primer by miles. Why would you put a inferior product under the 2k epoxy when you can remove the rust with abrasion and acid?
  20. Spencer

    PAINT THREAD

    Yes it is some kinda acid action but the problem is they have a primer in them, it dries like some kind of jelly and does not sand well. You are just meant to paint over it and its magic jelly powers make the top coat stick. But on tests and fucking around with a bunch of those primers (including garbage weld through) they all sand horrible and the top paint flakes off eventually. It says in the CRC datasheet wait 12h and top coat with enamel. It goes straight in the bin IMO. But yes it is a incompatibility of paint and undercoat and/or not enough cure time. There is other ways but t

    No offense but those are not good products to use (almost everything paint related from a parts store is junk). Any of those rust converters are terrible and have bad adhesion, everything I have tried to paint on them peels off easy as. Grind that shit off, go to bunnings get some phosphoric acid for treating the rust (brunox? I think next to the thinners, or vinegar for a slower version), then go to the paint shop and buy epoxy primer (protec is cheapest IMO, like $60 for 1L kit). You can brush on the primer, then top coat with whatever in white and it will be done forever.
  22. Yup my thoughts also is clearance with the diff, and then probably steering box etc. It probably make the job way easier to lift the body for clearance. I have messed around with a 4wd one with a 1UZ ages ago, no body lift but custom sump of course and headers. Rip the motor out and get a LS block dummied up in there and you will immediately see what you have to do
  23. Ring cartune and pretend to be interested customer.
  24. Yeah done a bunch of A series fwd cam belts and the mount is on the block? otherwise it would be all fucked up for single cam and FE stuff? memory is hazy though. Edit: yeah as per the link its a radiator hose thing which not all FWD used. I would put money its a late vs early bigport thing.
