Gonna use this first post as a to-do list. Will keep adding and crossing things off as I go. Very keen on any suggestions or advice. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After years of lurking, it's finally time to start a build thread for this. Some of you might remember this car from @japawagons and @Yowzer back in 2013ish. I bought it off japawagons and used it as a (troublesome) daily for a year or 2 before deciding to go back to school and hammer out an engineering degree. Student poverty meant I couldn't give the car the love it deserved and it wound up in dry storage with a friend while I studied. I graduated at the end of 2019 with big plans to give the Crown a refresh, only to be thwarted by Covid and then being sent down to Queenstown for a work contract. Tired of not getting to spend time on it, and feeling inspired by @Bluebear01's conversion, I've decided to go the 1UZ route. Watch me fall apart as I go. Discussion thread here: RE201's 1980 Toyota Crown Original build thread: Japawagon's MS110 Crown of Tax
Hey guys new here, I'm doing the old 1UZ to Surf conversion and I've rebuilt the motor and when i pulled it apart the wiring loom was in real bad shape (broken wires, connectors and insulation). I also have 2 other motors with the same issue I picked up from the wreckers. So I've decided to make a whole new loom and looking at the wiring diagram and testing one of the looms i noticed something odd about the cam/crank sensor wiring. So disassembled the loom and found the sensors run a twin core with a shielding around it that's all connected together and seems to earth out back at the computer. I'm guessing the shielding is there to stop interference from the ignition system. Now here's the issue that I've run into, I cant seem to find anyone who makes a twin core with a shielding the right size, I've spoken to a bunch of auto elec's and electrical wholesalers and they either haven't seen it or have no idea where to get it. So I was wondering if anyone here has ever made a new loom for this engine and what their solution is for this issue?
Discussion //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/23145-alistairs-bangin-cressy-of-1uzness/?hl=%2Balistair+%2Bcressy Finally picked it up today after the incident of not getting fucking rt40 i wanted. The only thing worse than driving an auto 1G from hamilton to aucks is driving an auto 1g from hamilton to aucks with a fucking miss and an auto box that wouldnt go into overdrive. Was epic roffles. Anyway heres some pics before i start 1uz project. I think its pretty tidy for what i paid for it. No rust, good paint, good skid rims, interior in good nick etc. Pics boes... Huge boot for all my NAWS /nah Plans are, Get stupid 1g out Do manual conversion with w55 box Collect all 1uzfe stuff over next few weeks including new fly +bell from a1 turbos Get mounts from auz that bolt into cressys saving me 20709273423 hours and moneys Custom extractors, sweet straight exhaust with two muffs back to two straight pipes Using standard computer, being wired by brendan at A1 Sort out suspension Do epic skids. Thats the plans anyway. Discuss.
