Jesse's 1988 Toyota Liteace KM36


Recommended Posts

Clutch showed up today.

Previously I posted the 4agze 225mm flywheel but I opted for the smaller 200mm as all the clutches were so expensive for the 225mm20210712_165855.thumb.jpg.ae136a921372850163b3246c39c25ece.jpg

I used a wet piece of limited edition Freyas sourdough to remove the old crank bearing. 

The ae86 disc didn't fit as the spline was too small but I checked the original 5k disc and it was a next to new exedy also so a quick swap over which I then saw I could have just used the whole van pressure plate also. Oh well.

Again just fouling on seat but thinner engine mount will remedy. 

Rear two trumpets are basically touching the sheet metal diving battery area and engine bay, wondering if I could use a die to pull two 60mm holes through with a dimple die leaving a lip for rigidity in the panel?

Picked up a starter motor yesterday and installed, just noticed the headers are basically touching the solenoid, is this usual?

Finally settled on a linkage kit that I liked from med-engineering.co.uk


with a bit of luck I can retain the factory throttle cable. Reasonably priced at $216 delivered and comes with the balancing lever to join second carburetor. 


The Carter Fuel Pump has just shown up from Rock auto which has come with these handy instructions on installing 2021-07-19_104813.jpg.eed24930795daba9d1a1634e2dda8e12.jpg

Is the check valve linking pull hose to push hose acting as a recirculating return when the bowls are full?

Another peice of advice I'm seeking is a recommendation for the driveshaft shortening in Auckland as 'Drive In' in New Lynn have said their driveshaft guy is off for 8-12 weeks with a hip replacement

Had a win on the illusive 4age engine to gearbox braces last night on yahoo. Screenshot_20210805-061940_Chrome.thumb.jpg.923a748599903278836014cf2753ca92.jpg

I'm still torn about what to do with exhaust manifold, i have spoke to someone about shortening the headers and it looks like the pipes are too close to each other to fully weld. 

A factory ae86 cast manifold is going to cost me about $400 from Japan 

Or fujistsubo do a few options like this 4-2-1 stainless which I could trim or remake the lower section


Or this 4-1 also fgk stainless which looks like it joins higher up from the secondary pipe they show in photos. 


Both of the fgk are around $¥75,000 so not cheap but probably a bit cheaper than having a set made plus the logistics and time of transporting vehicle
