    came out not the brakes is the main culprit, it could be internally shorted alty, I'm gonna source out a used alty from my friend, he got one wagon about to be scrapped, so this is my opportunity to pull out parts from the car. will post updates after this
  4. Yesterday
  5. 4AGTE engine with Garret GT28RS 4AGTE (4AGZE with a Garrett A/R60 M24 GT28RS turbo) this was to be my ultimate build for my AE86, but i have since sold it all and this is the last item in my garage 😞 this has been sitting in my parents shed for the last 10 years! 4AGZE 7 rib (i don't have the supercharger anymore) low mount Garrett A/R60 M24 GT28RS turbo BRAND NEW! HKS wastegate actuator adjustable techno toy tuning cam gears genuine RWD intake (not cut n shut) RWD engine mounts the oil lines have been done needs some water plumbing and bits i have the original flywheel, clutch plate, clutch plate cover for this also (not in pics) (had to remove them to fit on the stand) comes with a free engine stand! also have a minimal loom for it and the original GZE ECU for what its worth i cannot remember what internals it had, but i believe the guy i purchased it from had buit it strong for the power it was going to take, from memory i believe he went bigger its not a big turbo, but was chosen for quicker low end response, so should be pretty peppy pickup in Morley / Beechboro WA $2500ono
  6. Hi mate, loooong shot, but is this car still available?
  7. Last week
  8. Go in the boot and strip both tail light assemblies. Clean all the contacts and earths and try it again. They are one source of poor earths and confusing wiring problems involving brake lights, tail lights and indicators.
  9. Same same. But most importantly (besides pics and a write up) what brand and part number were the inserts!

    So back to electrical gremlin..what relay is on the kick panel fuse? Its humming when i turn off the ignition..i was about to test drive the car again after fixing, somehow when i press the brake..car shuts off and leads me to believing the car has the brake wiring issue..could be short to ground, i remember the previous owner mentioned the turn signal lit up if he steps on the brake. I'm gonna isolate the issue one by one and go from there

    Banjo, it was my original regulator, here in my country we call it as cut out, as it disables the starter and stop the alternator from charging. i opened it and found the coil inside for switching was burnt. the new alternator i bought also wont work, as the 3 wire connector is on the back, while the original is on the side. even i extend the wiring, still doesnt work.. so i put back my original alternator, but with new regulator/cut out, it works..however after a while..my regulator failed again, i don't see any trace of burnt inside the regulator/cut out coil, it doesnt charge now..just in case, i bought a new regulator again since its dirt cheap.. as for the headlight, i will try to get it working as the previous owner hacked the wiring, i will figure it out and re-do the wires, because i run dual headlight here, converted to DX from GL with bmw headlights.
  14. I'm never going to dis you for turboing a k mate. Instead of the usual 'why bother, just put a 4age in it' comment.... fucking sheep. Just do yourself a favour and don't use anything but a stock cam. Response will be great, but top end a little dismal. Just crack another gear 😉
  15. Gumtree ~ a set of skyline r31 wheels for sale ( not mine) there was 8 available but I bought 3. nice bloke to deal with https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/canberra-city/wheels-tyres-rims/refurbished-nissan-skyline-r31-silhoutte-wheels-4x114-3/1213738418 cheers
  16. Hi Keith, Glad you have it eventually all sorted. I remember following this thread some time ago, when working with another member on here with a stock standard KE25, for which we were considering all options possible. Please post some pics of how it all finished up. Love to see them. Cheers Banjo
  17. Hi John, Did you manage to get all the info you needed, to fit R31 Struts into your KE20. I'm sure there are others on this forum, with KE20/25s, that would be very interested. I look forward to meeting you at Leyburn this year. Cheers Banjo
  18. Hi Gee, you've got quite a collection there. Consider fitting some cheap 30A standard auto relays up at the front of the car. Wire a heavy cable from the battery +ve terminal through a fuse, to the relay NO contacts. From the other other side of the contact, run good heavier guage wires to lo & hi beams on each side. Control these Lo & Hi beam relays from existing headlight wiring, & you'll be amazed at the results. There is a thread on this forum, with some wiring diagrams, how to do it. Good luck ! P.S. So what did you find was actually stopping the alternator from charging ? Interested to know. Cheers Banjo
  19. Well, after almost 3 years faffing around I finally have the suspension sorted - if anyone is interested, for my 1974 KE20 coupe (Jap spec), MR2 Mk1 strut inserts worked with a turned brass spacer the same size as a 22mm copper compression fitting nut in the front and Mk2 Escort rear shocks on the rear. Kept everything else standard with 1.5 inch lowering blocks. Currently running some period 13 inch 6J alloys with correct 110 bolt pattern and not to fat tyres with no issues with tyres protruding beyond or rubbing on arches. Now looking to change front hubs and rear drums and drive shafts to get a better choice of Jap period wheels, hoping my KE30 shortened drive shafts in my KE20 axle with KE30 drums and back plates will work. Also hoping that the KP60/61 front hubs that I have will fit my standard KE20 front struts. Also have a mildly tuned small port 4AGE being built for me here in the UK which should deliver about 180BHP which is more than enough for my needs as it will be used just as a road car which should fit nicely in front of my T50 5-speed gearbox when I can find the parts to re-condition it! Photos to follow.
  20. Hi taz, I'd totally agree with you on that one, it is small, and yes, a ct12. Although it is a budget build and I've got it sitting around doing nothing so might as well use it, the motor I have for this car has everything plumbed for it. Keep costs down!😂😂😂😂
  21. Or maybe just refer to the post above which says all parts sold?
  22. It's that a ct12? They're a bit too small for a k really
  23. 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.
  24. While I was at it, I decided to fish out an intake and some wheels I've got sitting around, what you guys think?😂😂
  25. 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!
