  2. Thanks very much Banjo for all that info & the links to checkout. I should be starting the upgrade in a couple of weeks so will keep you posted. Thanks once again Cheers Johno LS1.
  3. Yesterday
  4. While I was at it, I decided to fish out an intake and some wheels I've got sitting around, what you guys think?😂😂
  5. Heya guys, Really appreciate your input Matt, will keep those pictures coming!😊😊 Not too much of an update guys, managed to put in a pedal box and steering column, also fished out a handbrake lever and got that side of things sorted!

    Thanks, but i like to keep it to stock engine, as chaging the engine to make it road legal is quite a hassle here. next on my list:- -fix the headlight wiring -recharge the AC (is it R12?) -15x8x9 ET0 wheels wrapped in 195/50/15 -full interior cleaning and bacteria killing
  10. Election looking bleak. Neither party will stand up for Australia against globalism. Labour wants to send your money away to the carbon gods, and Liberals want to forgo tax income to help out big business, and neither party gives a fuck who we elect or why, its already become an over reaching beurocracy that fucks everything up no matter what the citizens think. Its actually time for a revolution. Then they go and call an election for a weekend Im away playing Golf. This governemnt is just completley pointless.
  11. Woo! Nice! I was expecting something rougher than that! So it can be a project car that is off the road being worked on while you do an engine upgrade. In 15years your first-born can drive it!!
  12. Yeah man its been pretty hard to fathom, and Im pretty resilient. Have now noticed a dent in the drivers door from the guys knee, and I dunno what we ran over but the cars steering feels wierd. It will be assessed soon and Ill have a plan of action for getting it fixed. Shannons has been really good about getting it looked at. Because the assailants are both known Identities and have been charged by Police, there is no excess to pay. Ive made my statements to Police, who, due to the nature and severity of the crime, have fast tracked the court process. Its nice to see some real action towards justice this time. When I was king hit and had my nose broken I got no help from Police at all.

    gonna keep the car as part of my project car, not really a daily but more into appreciating the old car..i swapped my motorbike for this car, since i have newborn kid, so there will be not much time to ride again, i rather get a car which can bring my wife and kid to go out with..this is the current looks for the car, of course the wheels will be changed. i have a 15x8x9 et0 wheels on standby..managed to fix the not charging issue, also next is to get the headlights working again and A/C to be recharged. i have 1993 BMW 730i, 2012 kia optima and 2012 toyota fortuner..
  15. Last week
  16. Would you like to start a new topic with this question, it would be easier to find in the future. Where do you live and what engines are around?? There is the 2L Toyota Y engine (114lb.ft) that would fit, at least is has a square bore and stroke, or the long stroke 7K (103lb.ft) as you said. An oversquare 18R would be another contender, (107lb.ft) in fact you could fit almost anything with a bit of work.. How big is your budget and how much experience do you have in swapping motors? Are you sure the 5K is in good condition? Do a compression test and check the points and timing to see how well it is performing. It is definitely a bit small for a commercial vehicle.
  17. Depends on how long you're going to keep the car... The old alty will wear out & a new bracket is not that hard a job. Its probably worth mailing a bracket from Aussie, although if you can easily return the alty & get your cash back you might as well. Where abouts are you?? Did you buy the car? Is it going to be your daily driver or do you drive something else? Stick up some photos..
  18. I have a liteace van with a 5k engine in it,is it possible for me to put a 7k engine in it because it's not pulling uphill?

    Huge update, after fiddling around with the help of keith's diagram, i found no tampered wire, but the new alt wont work with my car, and i have oem busted regulator, installing new regulator with the old alt works like a charm..i guess I'm gonna return the new alt, anyway what alternator with integrated regulator will work with the engine without modifying the bracket?
  20. Yeah, looks like there is a wire missing off the coil +ve. The ballast resistor drops 12V down to 9V for the 9V coil, but it gets bypassed when you're cranking. So the +ve coil side has two wires, one straight from the key for cranking, and one from the ballast resistor for running. Then the -ve goes to the dizzy, and to the tacho if you have one, and often to a capacitor to get rid of radio noise. Get a test light or a multimeter and find the wire that is +12v when the key is on cranking, it should be red, that goes on coil +ve. Check that the wire from the ballast to coil +ve is live when the key is just on ignition. Check where the coil -ve wires go to. You only need the one going to the distributor really. With the points open and the key on ignition, you should get a spark across the points with a screwdriver. There are wiring diagrams on here. See how you go... Oh, that purple wire just goes around the engine bay to the other side I think.
  21. [sigh].. I've had these rims lying around for years, in great condition but I'd never worried about moving to 14". Anyway, I bought a set of Toyo Nanoenergy 3 tyres last week, had them fitted, jacked the car up... and although the rims go on the hubs the wheelnut shanks won't go in the holes! So more measuring and I find they fit KE10s or KE20s, but not KE70s. $420 the lot, excellent condition rims and tyres that have not been on a car! or $200 for the rims and I'll use the tyres on other wheels. I can deliver to Lithgow, or out to Wellington, or anywhere up to Armidale. Otherwise I can freight, but unless these rims are rare I can't see that being economic.
  22. I can't start my ke70 CSX 4k 1984 plx help and what is it missing?. ,
