  1. Nice one Mason that will keep her going for a bunch more years to come. Great to get something good out of a bad situation. Happy Rolla-ing G
  2. Hey Caleb It wont be the timing belt you can see it will be the fan belt that runs the water pump and alternator K series engines have a timing chain. There is a bolt at the alternator that you loosen and slide the alternator to the side to tighten the belt. The banging from the rear could be damaged gearbox mounts or a failing uni joint in your tailshaft. As far as the smoke in at cylinder 3 give it a degrease and see how you go.
  3. Is the circuit you are connected to the usual one you use? The circuit could be fully loaded and your unit is tipping it over or the breaker could be fatigued and be in need of replacement. If you have access to a non safety switch protected circuit plug it into that if it trips it is an over current issue. If it doesn't then it is an earth leakage fault.
  4. Put a multimeter on it and see if it is energised, if not then turn on your parkers and test, then head lights then hi beam. If it is related to the headlights you will soon see.
  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. When i rebuit my daughter's carby i soaked all the parts in carby cleaner then on the idle jet i used a small syringe and forced caby cleaner into the jet and at the same time used a single stiff nylon bristle from a broom and worked the build up lose. It worked a treat. That was 3 years ago and i haven't touched it since.
  7. I had the same issue with my daughters KE55 auto. It was a blocked idle jet. Best thing to do is rebuild the carby. I think I paid $45 for the gasket kit. It took me about 2 hours to remove strip clean and rebuild it. Heaps cheaper than a Weber and a whole lot less hassle.
  8. Engine swaps.....Hmmmm....I would be praying for a Christmas miracle. Good luck.
  9. don't like your chances.That advert is nearly 4 years old.
  10. Use a vacuum cleaner and a deflated party balloon tied to survey string as the first draw wire. It works for miles.
  11. Hey Dave I am located at Buccan which is on the way to Logan Village from Waterford. I have a very nice midnight blue with light highlights through it. It is high end commercial. There is also a multi toned brown as well as red green yellow and blue solid colours. I can send u some pics if u are interested
  12. I just realised....its a 2 door. You must really like that car. Good luck. Show us your progress as you go.
  13. So...you bought a shed...and it comes with a house?
  14. Hey man cave dwellers and shed shut ins have I got a deal for you. I have a recently acquired a quantity of brand new still in the boxes commercial carpet squares. Ideal for the man cave, kids play room or to make your rolla a cozy space in the shed.The squares are 500mm x 500mm so 4 per square metre. I have a number of bright colours red, green, yellow, blue but in various amounts. These tiles wholesale at $8.00 each and I'm looking to get $2.00 each. I was going to use them in my garage when I move into my as yet unconstructed house but space is limited and I don't want them to get damaged while in storage. I can't upload pics from my phone for some reason but if you are interested send me a PM and i can send pics as required. Thanks Big G
  15. It would be better if you posted as your build progresses that way others can see how you go about it. You may approach your build diffently to others that have done it before. Looking forward to see how she turns out.
