    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    That is some great economy. Do you think there is any more you can get from her? Thanks for converting it to litres/100.

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    I was reading those fuel consumption values and thought...meehh...not so good until I realised it was klm per litre. Its a bit early in the day. So I converted it. Freakin awesome for something that has got a stack of poke. Impressive and so pretty.

    Engine and electric issues.

    Firstly what car and what engine do you have? Sounds like the idle jet in the carby is blocked. You can give it a squirt with some carby cleaner but more often than not it will need to be pulled apart and cleaned thoroughly and if you are lucky the gaskets can be reused.

    I bought yet another ke1x...

    Not a barn find if you have known about her for years but clearly stored some where out of the elements. She is in good condition that interior looks great. Happy daze.
  6. I have installed AC in my daughters ke55 and the evaporator box is a very specific shape and size. It is the same contour as the firewall and there are fixing points that line up with tapped holes under the dash and firewall. If the ke 70 one isn't identical there is going to have to be a bunch of mods to make it fit.

    She will pass with flying colours just on looks alone. Too pretty.

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    You will barely notice it when it is painted. Very subtle yet functional as you will have air slip streaming into that slot at the rear of it. Less is more as they say.

    KE55 Build Thread

    Condolences to you. It is such an awful feeling when you realise your pride and joy is in the hands of some low lifer. My Datsun Fairlady convertible got stolen and trashed. I fixed her up but she was never the same. I'm with Altezza lets round em up and string em up. A bit of vigilantism is what the world needs. Eeeeeeha.

    BLZBUB has another 4AGE.

    An act of destruction, is in itself creative.

    WTB- Programmable ignition

    I can vouch for the Accuspark unit. I put one in my daughters Bosch dissy for her 4k as it kept chewing points. Took $78 dollars 20 minutes to install and I havent looked at it for 12 months.

    MZEA12 Corolla hatch

    FANGING. I haven't heard that word in forever. It flew me back to my misspent youth and the Springwood Hungry Jacks drags on a Friday night. Aaaah good times.

    Ke20 new old stock - where?

    I just looked at one of his adds and it is not under his name. He does have tons of celica stuff. Is he a bit dodge?

    Ke20 new old stock - where?

    There is a guy at Ferny Hills that has tons of Toyota stuff for sale. He is on Gumtree with about a hundred adds. Just type in KE corolla in parts and Brisbane region and that should get you there.

    BODY WORK Question.

    The short answer is it is unlikely you will get the old and new to blend invisibly. In the olden days there were guys called panel beaters, now they were called panel beaters for a reason. They had the skills and the tools to beat and stretch and straighten sheet metal panels and make them look like new. If you can find one of these mysterious hammer swinging mystics be prepared to sell your first born to pay for the privilege of setting foot in magical cave of creativity. They can be found in the enchanted forest, ask the unicorns for directions.

    ke35 4age conversion

    Have you seen the prices of AE86's these days? You would be lucky to get change from 20k for one. That is if you can find one.

    ke30/35 meter cluster light

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I wonder how many members will get the reference. Classic.

    KE38 Master Cylinder help

    The best way to learn how something works is to pull it apart. But always take note of the order and direction of components sometimes its critical.Even use witness marks I find them helpful. I got my resleaving done on the Southside of Brisbane so no help to you. Go the Google and make some calls it is a pretty standard price that they can quote you over the phone. Good luck.

    KE38 Master Cylinder help

    I had the same unit from my daughters KE55 rebuilt with a stainless sleeve installed and new everything else for $195. It was a 6 hour turn around from when I dropped it off to when I picked it up. Just like a newy and the sleeve will never wear out or so they say.
