Project Thread: //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/43408-seedy-als-1981-crown-sedan/

Is there a discussion thread for this piece yet?

Such a lowrider wannabe

Re, Brakes pulling. Push the front pistons in and make sure they are free.

Try clamping one brake hose at a time to figure what's going on where.

I don't think it will be a wheel alignment thing, but could be wrong.

Yeah but he needs a WOF before he slams it and needs it to brake straight for a WOF.

It got wofs on the cut Springs, just spray them red and then go for wheel alignment, thats got to help, saves 2 alignments

Yeah going to push in the pistons tomorrow. The slides seem sweet. Also changed the wheel ocer so hopefully that helps. Should just wind out the left hand side a bit to get it running a little more straight.

And yeah lol. All torque is my wof guy. He is a gc thats for sure

And yeah unfortunately I love crowns my richie friend. And very happy its not 202 powered!

to slammed with 4 people.

probably was just, as the front is slightly lower than the back.

wasn't really going to argue with them

been down that road before and doesn't turn out well.

quarter of a coil more in the front and would be sweet I would say.

just going to chuck the lowered springs it came with back in the make it jacked to shit like in the pics when I bought it and get sticker sorted.

plan is to sell anyway. but might make another trip down to hanmer springs yet. will see.

Why not use no sump gasket, just 3 bond?

New cars don't have sump gaskets. Three bond is good shit, or you could get some Toyota seal packing.

If you do, it will be worth checking the oil pick-up to sump clearance.

yeah I know most modern Toyotas don't, we do new stuff all the time, but yeah, probably could get away with it,

however, I have litterly just hit the buy now on a full gasket set for $50 cheaper than the one I got from repco that doesn't even do the bottom end, sure, maybe a bit risky, But people have heaps of good feed back, so what the hell, worth a try.
