  2. Is your crank pulley tight?
  3. Padded dash, in decent nick or small tear that's repairable, thanks, NZ - wellingron/wairarapa
  4. Hi Graeme, For you ! For the Love of Toyota's 86 Corolla is Eternal Cheers Karlos
  5. Hey Rollaphiles bad news I am afraid I have been diagnosed with corollavirus and so has the Princess. Symptoms include wishing KE s were still being made, wondering what is the best polish to maintain that showroom gleam, being obsessed with what to do to power up your classic and make her handle better, getting a sore neck from nodding knowingly when people point and wave and tell you your car is sooo cool and the most painful one not recognising that an AE 86 was going to become the Holy Grail of all Corollas. Unfortunately there is no cure so we are all doomed to live happily ever after in our classic car world. Hopefully you are all safe and well. Keep on Rolla-ing.
  6. Hi Karlos, You left your "location" on in your camera, & using the latest hi-tech software, we have here in Oz, I was able to locate you in South America, & pick up a picture of you in real-time, from a road side camera. I have very bad news for you. Your beloved Corolla, has already contracted the viras, & turned into a Corona ! As for the olde paint drum you used to store the old sump oil in, I can advise, that "Acid" is not a colour name for some Toyota Colour Code. One other thing I noticed about your car, that you may have missed. The hubcaps have fallen off; although there are others on our forum, who would probable suggest, that is the least of your issues with your Corolla. We are amazed at the amount of work you have done to the car already, & ask that you regularly put some more pictures up here for us to look at . . . . . . . once you get your camera working again. Cheers Banjo
  7. Last week
  8. TOYOTA COROLLA AE101 Rear Lips https://youtu.be/jngEU9CATfY
  9. My 3T has this tapping noise at cold start, after 5 mins noise is partially gone. Again after running a few kilometers noise will again be evident. Oil pressure is fine, new connecting and main bearings installed, tappet clearance adjusted properly. Camshaft slightly out of thrust clearance due to worn out thrust plate, can that be the reason of the tapping noise? Thanks for the input
  10. Well i can tell you this much. I'm sick of sitting at home. This is the third week of working from home. I think i've left the house twice in that time. Internet is too damn slow, my work laptop has 3 VPN layers to to anything so it exaggerates the issue. And really its only the beginning of this shamozzle. e30 might even get de-registered as its unlikely to leave the garage before....christmas?
  11. What! How Un-Australian! We must all pull together to survive this UN-mandated pandemic and if we put up with a little inconvenience it won't hurt us! Besides, we'll take the Army off the streets and won't have them stopping you to check who you are and what you are doing ...just as soon as this virus is gone! Vanished from the last faulty tests we are using that give completely unreliable results, but are a great excuse to do what we want! Maybe late June, you can all be dole-bludgers until then and we will just print money to give you. Of course we will never actually remove the laws from the books, we'll just "not enforce" them until the next pandemic when we need them, and in the meantime you can all enjoy the compulsory vaccinations needed as soon as we can make one. Road accidents killed 92 Australians in February, compared to 20-odd for the Coronavirus. The cost of keeping 10 or 20thousand older people alive for one more year has been 'the whole Australian economy', it will be years and years to build it back up.
  12. Just checking in to see if everybody is enjoying their free 30 day trial of communism?
  13. Drink some fish tank cleaner....... You be fine M8 *do not take comments by Msr Trump as any form of endorsement. Following the Presidents advice [on ANYTHING] could be toxic for 240,000 US citizens 😕
  14. AE101/102/111 coilovers will fit 100% (as long as they aren't for a SuperStrut model), I believe AE92 will as well but not 100% (some places say they do, others have different part numbers)
  15. I'm new here. I live in South America. Found your website, as I'm scared about my KE Corolla, catching the viras, & turning into a Corona. I do not want that, as I couldn't afford to pay for the more Benzine it would use. I have looked up about the viras, & found that the Corona Viras sticks to metal surfaces. I decided to make my Corolla very slippery, so nothing could stick to it. I poured an old drum of sump oil, I had here, all over it last night, before going to bed. Very bad ! When I wake up this morning, the paint is peeling all over my Rolla. Is there anything I can do to reverse this condition ? P.S. Sorry, I can't post a picture of it, as I think my phone has got the viras too, as the camera part doesn't seem to be working this morning. Thanks Karlos
  16. Great to see it still looking so good.
  17. You can't see it's...ugh... not so healthy side, so we'll stick to the propaganda view for a while. Steve, you are a legend for the photo & making it look like that! :)
  18. Hi Chauny, Welcome aboard ! Bet we can help you fix your Corolla, as there are not too many faults, I would think, that we haven't come across before. (especially electrical) Altezzaclub, was quick to answer you, because he "loves" KE70s. Tell us a little about your Corolla, which will help us, help you. Electrical faults can be intermittent, or "partial", but are often, just working one minute, & not the next. (like when you blow a fuse) When was your Corolla last running OK ? Did it just stop, or was there signs of something going wrong before it became immobile ? Any smells ? Dim lights ? Been hard to start ? The more information you can feed us, the quicker we can point you in the right direction, & get you mobile again. Cheers Banjo
  19. What is not working on the car?? Here is a wiring diagram, its for the KE70 with a 4K motor, not the 2T. There are always differences in wiring between countries too. https://www.dropbox.com/s/s0xs2udvrv9qfl2/downloadfile.jpg?dl=0
  20. Hello good afternoon I am writing from Chile to see if you can help me with a photo of the electrical diagram of the Toyota Corolla. My car is broken and I would like to see if I can repair it with my basic knowledge. My email is [email protected]
  21. Was looking at lowering the corolla, i have the 2000 hatch and was trying to look for some coilovers and can’t find any for it. I have found multiple for the ae111 or 99 model and was wondering are they compatible or is there a way to make them fit? thanks in advance.
  22. Hi Mason, From one woe to another, it seems ! As the replacement alternator you obtained was a "new" one, & it is not charging properly, your best option, is to now change the external regulator, if you can get hold of one. I would suggest to any one who is going to fork out for a new alternator, that they upgrade it to one with more output, & that has an inbuilt solid state regulator. The original Corolla factory alternators all had outputs of 30-35-or 40 amperes. Current alternators with 85A output are of similar size, & you'll always have nice bright headlight, instead of the "yellow candles". Although there are plenty of 85A & upwards alternators available, mounting them is the big issue, & lining up the pulley that the front, with the existing water pump, & crankshaft pulleys. I used an 85A one out of a earlier model Toyota Hilux, years ago, & it has be fantastic. It wasn't even new; it was a rebuilt unit. I only recently had to replace the regulator, which started to play up. The reason the Hilux alternator was a good substitute, was that it fitted on the existing K Series engine alternator mounting bracket, & only needed about 3 washers to move it, forward, so the pulleys lined up. I think I even transposed the original alternator pulley. Hope that is another option for you. Cheers Banjo
  23. I have a front end i can sell u.what city n state are u in?
  24. Make a careful budget for this project, you'll probably spend a similar amount whether you use a K motor or a newer 16valve with twice the power. What Coln says is right, do up a K and enjoy it, it will cruise at 110kph, overtake cars with a bit of work, and even manage to go up most hills. However I figure you need a 4AGE to really keep up with anything. At Woolshed Rallying we have four 4AGE-powered KE70s and none of those motors have had a rebuild since they were bought. That makes their cost plus the T50 gearbox about the same as rebuilding a K motor. Even better, about $3000 will buy you an Altezza half-cut with the 3SGE and the J160 6-speed, but the associated engineering costs push this price up. 4K- 43KW (58 hp) at 5200 rpm and 90 N⋅m Hot 4K- 55-60KW, maybe 95Nm 5K- 53KW, 105Nm or so 4AGE- 95 kW 142 N⋅m 2ZZGE- 141 kW 181 N⋅m . The gearbox will be difficult! 3SGE- 154 kW 216 N⋅m
  25. Surely by now every k engine has either been repurposed into a great wall or requires a rebuild.
  26. Dunno, got my last one nearly 20 years ago....... First port of call would be a Toyota wrecker
  27. cheers dude ive been looking into the 5k tonight and it seems too tickle my fancy you got any suggestions where too get a low km 5k from?
