    Rear guards usually require refabricating inside the guard.

    Carina II '91 in United Kingdom

    I should add, after a speed event we would swap the spring back so the second Venturi only opened as per factory, or you lose flexibility for around town driving.

    I assume that’s the old “swap the spring from one side of the diaphragm to the other” trick. I’d forgotten all about that. We used to do that back in the 80’s club racing days. But soon it was a slippery slope to twin side drafts Ah the memories!

    First start for a while

    Yes definitely agree with the oil in the plug hole. I left that out

    First start for a while

    I would take the plugs out and turn it over in bursts of about 5 seconds about 7 or 8 times. Then put the plugs back in. Should have oil pressure by then and fuel to the carb. Double check no fuel leaks then fire it up
  11. You have to question why Toyota ever went with that design in the first place. I can’t recall ever having seen another 2 piece manifold gasket.
  12. Shouldn’t be too hard. Lots of later corolla’s had cable release. I would visit a wreckers and take something complete from the earliest toyota I could find with it. For example, ae86 coupes have them, and I’m sure our AE82 seca had one. Your hardest task may be getting the cable length right.

    Boingk's KE20

    That's awesome. You shouldn't have told people about the pineapple tins. You could have started a business and retired on the proceeds! Great to hear it is running so well. As a boy, dad and I used to do an annual Melbourne - Labrador - Melbourne trip and his KE20 just ate up the kilometres along the old back route through Dubbo, Goondawindi etc. Good times
