  1. Time for an update because I have some work planned. Have collected everything I need to put Air conditioning in. I purchased or saved over the years; -a new oem Denso condenser - a new Spal fan for the condenser - working 2az AC pump from my 78000 k donor car and the pump ends of the AC lines. - all the OEM AC parts from the car including all the standard soft and hard lines, mounts, wiring to connect it up under the dash. - Spare AE86 heater switch block as mines a bit broken in the car. - New AC faceplate decal - New OEM heater core from Japan. I decided that its not worth just doing AC, I will fit a heater too. Things I need to re engineer to make it work; 1. Relocate oil cooler and lines. Make new brackets for it and possibly ducting. 2. Mount the AC pump and design the new belt and tensioner system to spin it. 3. Decide what kind of heater tap to use, where to mount it, and the hose path for it. I'm considering either an electric heater tap with a hidden micro switch in the AC switches to operate it, or a relocated cable setup. I think electric tap will be simpler with what I have going on in the bay already. Have treated her to a few missing parts as I've been able. I put in a rear hatch trim board which I bought new. I finally found a rear demister switch and bought it new also. Have replaced the headlight knob that had no writing left on it with new. I bought a top windscreen trim (again) as I will have to do a screen at some point maybe to re register as its got a big stone chip the size of a 10 cent piece on the passenger side. The old top trim has never fitted right as the windscreen guy didn't mount all the clips as needed so it just flies off at 100kph. Has happened twice now once on the Bruce Highway and was never seen again. I also bought a new rubber grommet for the bonnet post so it doesn't rattle, and a fuel tank pickup gasket to change next time the tank comes out. I have some folded and cut to size metal to make a new lower passenger seat rail to match the drivers and allow me to get rid of the modified ke70 rails it has. I also have the bride type seat slider to adapt to it. Basically building a copy of the drivers rail I have but reversed. Front wiper motor is pretty sad so will be swapping that to a better one. Also going to fit the rear wiper washer demister setup for the hatch as it rains a lot at the moment and Id rather have it in the car and I have all the switches finally. Car isn't currently registered but will be re registered after all that's done. Also lowered it and bought a better Jack so I can get under it at the lower height.
  2. From memory the ae86 stock pump is just an in tank HP pump, not a lift pump so it will have to hold whatever pressure the rail holds.
  3. I made new oversize fuel lines for my first ae71, was not worth it. Maybe the least enjoyable mod I've ever done. Just write down the pip sizes for feed and return, take the pump bracket with you, ditch the expensive raceworks stuff and go to an industrial gasfitting supplier like IFS and just buy what you need off the shelf. They have everything, hose to barb, taper fittings, banjos, hose adapters, push lock, metric imperial and they can make a fitting if you're really stuck.
  4. Es posible que deba publicar una foto de la caja de cambios o buscar cosas en el catálogo de piezas y confirmar lo que tiene.
  5. You have a speedo drive that suits the automatic final drive ratio.
  6. Not to mention the leather seats!
  7. Yeah make mounts to suit your chassis. Custom headers and inlet. Y starter ring gear and bellhousing. Have a bellhousing set for sale if you're keen message me. Use a W transmission. I have a w57 now but will put a w58 in soon. Fuel system, wiring, ecu, tuning etc.
  8. I've seen so many adds for sale lately priced on potential. Like a stock roughish VK executive with a HSV GTS motor, on a pallet next to it, asking 25k. With a comment like, just needs to be dropped in. lol. Car is valued at 5k, motor at 6k, how do you come up with 25k. People get in too deep, cause its easy to spend if you're an idiot with cash, but idiots cant fix or finish anything. Hows the ae86 on FB marketplace with the full ra65 engine, box and interior, with positive offset wheels asking 25k. Fucking vomit spec. Where I come from people like that get slapped.
  9. Looks like old mate lives in QLD so all that engineer stuff doesn't apply. Just get a mod plate and follow adrs when you build it, and you'll be fine. Thankfully QLD motor trades are deregulated and there's even 6 shires where you dont ever require a roadworthy. My mod plate for 2az86 was about 200 bucks, and it covered engine, suspension and diff, cage and seats.
  10. Quick update. House is half built. Roof is on. Cars been sweet as can be. No real issues to report, just wear and tear from all the roadwork between here and Brisbane. Copped some gravel and rocks from trucks coming in and out of the quarry north of Gympie. Was lucky to not experience much more serious damage. Front bar took the brunt, and ejected the paint. Gave it a wash today. Much overdue.
  11. Sounds like a fun little project. Did you dribble a couple ml of oil into each cylinder to try to lube up any stuck rings while comp testing?
  12. I put it all back together minus the grill and sent it for AC repairs. It had a rubbed through a hose from my big fan that I added to the condenser. I removed the big fan for now, and will replace the 400mm unit with a much more appropriately sized 300mm one. Otherwise its all fixed mechanically now and the AC is 3 degrees C. If I'm being fussy I might grease the steering rack and tie rod ends. The suspension is performing well. Next to no body roll, or pitch and bounce with good shocks in it. The Konis are in the front now dont know if I mentioned. Just need to find someone to spray the top of it now.
