  1. Ive had to replace part of the passenger side chassis rail, and at least half of the drivers side due to rust, and its had a really hard hit in the rear before as I measured 15mm thick bog in places, although yes, it will see the road and not the scrappers! Just a stock standard 4k, i'm led to believe its not that long since rebuild although appears to have been caned by the amount of blow by its producing! lol! That to me is awesome, i'm not holding my hopes too high as I don't want to be disappointed!! I will upload pictures of the engine when I get a chance to show you guys the mods that someone has made to the sump!! Cheers for everyones interest!!! Great motivation!!!
  2. Yeah taz, the motor I'm using is pretty much stock standard, going to lock the dizzy and that's about it really. Obviously I'll throw a set of rings and bearings through it at most! Kickn5k, That sounds encouraging, although I will be mega happy with anything 60hp+ at the wheels!😁😁
  3. 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!😂😂😂😂
  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!
  6. Hiya fellow rollaclubbers! I've had a passion for ke30's for almost 20 years now, and thought I'd post up my slow going project!😂😂 I acquired this old girl 5 years ago, after being on chassis stands for that time, it's finally rolling again! So, the aim for this old girl, recycle and reuse the various shit loads of parts I have in my possession, and keep the build cost to an absolute minimum! This isn't going to be any show winning car, just a tidy driver! Story so far, All freshly painted underneath, engine bay! All new suspension bushes, shocks, springs, wheel bearings, running a 4.3 Borg Warner diff up back! That's it for now, stay tuned!
  7. that's the wrong head for that bottom end, with a shallow chambered head will make it run better, cheers!
  8. if its got flat top pistons, good chance its just a normal chambered head, cheers!
  9. if all else fails, ive got a few good ones here, cheers!
  10. Pretty much rule of thumb, if there is no lugs under 1 & 4 plug holes, flat tops are the go. Or unless your head has had a few mm milled off? cheers!
  11. I'm glad they're utilising them still, I guess I'm part of the problem, considering years ago you couldn't get squat for them and dumped them by the truck load, and its good that you guys are still acquiring them!!!
  12. Here in aus usually 4/5k's had them, and are interchangeable being the same crank, earlier 3k's had them around the world due to air conditioning, unsure of the 7k's, cheers!
  13. Not sure if anyone here still screws around with 4k's in general, is it me or are they drying up? Considering the amount of corollas that used to be on our roads, plus in the vans, and engines imported into the country, i'm finding it difficult to locate almost anything in any condition. I realise they're pushing 40 years old, What are your thoughts? Does anyone know of a mysterious mountain of them that i'm yet to discover? ha ha! Cheers!
  14. I know this sounds lazy, when I had mine, I just took the car to a carby shop, labour cost $400 plus parts (10 years ago), they tuned it perfectly, had power right through the rev range, no fowling of plugs, and never touched the carbies again for as long as I had the car. Cheers!
  15. As the title states, just after a standard 13" factory steel rim, don't care what it looks like, don't need a tyre, as long as its useable. Cheaper the better! willing to pick up throughout Brisbane, cheers!
  16. Yeah their parts seem good, bought a few things off them in the past, never had an issue.
  17. Anything green, don't go for the red stuff as it eats out copper, brass and solder in older cars cooling systems, cheers!
  18. Got some stock ke55/70 wheels, can part with a set of (14" I know") mags for the right price. Also have a ke55 diff, although no drums, axles nor backing plates.
  19. may be an option if all else fails???? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Universal-Power-Wiper-Kit-Street-Rod-Hot-Rod-from-EZ-Wiring-/262728921023?hash=item3d2bdd2fbf:g:uL4AAOSwA3dYMz-P
  20. ps, personally I wouldn't polish your head ports, leave them rough so you get better mixture of your air/fuel, been there, done that, better results from being rough, cheers!
  21. Those are bonnet vents, not rear quarter vents, cheers!
  22. Repco pistons don't surprise me that they have cracked, ive built four engines with them in the past, and all four engines had piston problems a few years later, cheers!
