More sanding. Bogging.. blocking. I want to finish this and then have a break from the bodywork and start trimming these engine mounts. Picked up engine crane the other day ready for it.

Decided to tackle the engine mounts to have a break from sanding. It needed doing before paint anyway as i scratched the firewall getting motor in.

Carb apprantly works fine but was a problem with cold start. With a little help identified carb has automatic mechanical choke which is a good idea to fuck it off and replace with an electric converison kit or one out of a later model if anyone knows thatll fit?

Mines been plugged off. Guess i could also just hook it up n see if it works

Ok so didn't get doors ready but im getting there! Not from lack of trying this seems to just be a long process but the end result should be worth it..

20190127_154057_zpsfk9s8hyi.jpg

Blocked the front 2 doors back after i had bogged em

20190127_170112_zpsqyvqntxw.jpg

 

Sprayed some epoxy on the rub thrus and hit them both with some high build.

20190127_171240_zpsl85x20eu.jpg

Sprayed some guide coat and let them dry overnight.

 

20190127_213419_zpsxhpjbpdy.jpg

 Blocked back front doors again.

20190127_231528_zpsdio4so66.jpg

Then cleaned panel and bogged pinholes 

20190127_232703_zpsaoblweta.jpg

20190127_233607_zpslt1erljs.jpg

Blocked again and am pretty happy with them. Will spray some more high build on and get the rears up to the same and final block them all and off to painters.

What a weekend!

Hi

 

I managed to find a full engine gasket set from the us so I've ordered one of them which will turn up next month..

Have been cracking on with putting the interior back together

I'm needing a few trim clips/door card clips I guess they look like P shaped? Also the plastic circles that slot into the inner door skins so will see if can purchase some new ones.

Cheers

Got some more done.

Painted the factory extractors and the air filter casing 

 

20190424_184746_zpsvzwtai04.jpg

 

20190424_184801_zpsatqfftef.jpg

Picked up the new proportioning valve from mitsi this came in a pair so have a spare.

20190423_211300_zpsvwxlku5t.jpg

 

And installed it conveniently in place of a female bracket on firewall 

 

20190423_213204_zpsjuh6brzw.jpg

 

Began to bleed the brakes but unfortunately the rear wheel cylinders started leaking argh..

It's over extending and leaking out of end of piston sleeve. I took one back and a replacement is doing the same thing now...the guy matched these up and no listing for orginials and these are off 70-81 I think Corolla and coronas.. 

 

20190423_223806_zpsvk683xm6.jpg

 

Frustrated I'll leave it for time being and tackle it again in a day or 2.

I had adjusted the auto adjuster so it was wiggly to get the drum on but still extends to far and leaks

Been plugging away still.

My brother came over last weekend and together we tried to bleed the brakes but with still no luck. Spent hours trying too but the bastards still seemed to over extend n leak.. anyway got over that pretty fast so have brought sheepers parts car ms65 wheel cylinders, drums and shoes. Worst case I'll get the cylinders rebuilt.

My gasket set from California turned up and it all seems to be well made.

20190501_185047_zpssuhstdex.jpg

 

The drivers rear window winder mechanism was in a sad state of affairs it had been snapped and re welded.. twice so I quickly fucked that off and got one sent up from harry in chch.

20190501_185122_zpsaa4uw6ho.jpg

Bloody works mint too.

 

Started cleaning rocker cover prepping it for paint.

20190501_203545_zpsihjaolqb.jpg

And removing all the parts I had sitting on loosely.. swapped the crankshaft pully to the double for the power steering.

 

20190504_155445_zpsp6nrritj.jpg

 

Picked up my fully rebuilt power steering box and power steering pump from PG Hydraulics. Heres some steering porn the whole family can enjoy.

20190503_164323_zpsohyugqvu.jpg

The power steering box was full of water when they opened it Haha

 Look at the state of this crap

20190503_140758_zpsax6oikqe.jpg

Anyway installed those along with all the parts that needed gaskets and painted up what needed doing.

20190504_105547_zpsdrfspgr5.jpg

Wrinkle painted the rocker.

Mrs was real pleased while I had this baking in the oven for a few hours haha

20190504_193326_zpsrwbtoark.jpg

Just need a couple hose clamps for the oil cooler and I can put oil in. Getting closer to firing it up.

 

I'm undecided if I want to sand back the 'Toyota' on the rocker cover and the rectangle. I did it on my Corona and I kinda like it all blacked out.
