  1. Confident it's out of an AE92 bigport TVIS engine when you are buying parts for the distributor in future. That's not going to affect what your starter is doing though. If the starter is smoking there is a problem with how it's wired, and it it's happened on a couple of starters including one you know is good, it's going to be a loom issue.
  2. Well you don’t have an AE86 distributor if that’s the right cap. Doesn’t mean anything though as could of been changed at anytime. What part number is on the distributor

  11. New house is great, but have had to be pretty brutal with part stores. Sold a few things, thrown out a few things, and Peter Robinson came past with Ute and took a few other things away. Now crating up various spares and a huge amount of NOS stuff accumulated over the years for all three cars. I’ve always known what I had, problem was knowing where it was. Popped over to a mates today who has an amazing and varied collection including a fantastic AE86 Trueno, and near on 50 Honda cub bikes, and mini bikes. He is also cleaning out, so came home with another spare guard, another T50 and another fuel tank, having just thrown out 2. They will all get stored away somewhere.....
  12. As I rearrange my garage I will pass on some stuff and add as I go pickup is in Burwood Vic AE86 underdash aircon and heater unit You will need to replace the foam which has perished. Comes with two condensers with dryers SOLD

  16. Holden isn’t a surprise. They have been attempting to sell off the business quietly for some time. Perhaps they can return to Group A rather than the ‘supercar’ nonsense. Otherwise the Fords can race against each othe
  17. If you have access to decent octane fuel, 10:1 is a good compression ratio to aim for. Different markets had various compression ratios from standard so realistically you need to measure and work out what you have. Often the pistons will have the ratio cast into the piston crown. But you can’t assume the head has never been touched previously, although it may only have had a light skin previously. if you have a good machinist locally, they can probably advise you. don't go too far though. It’s no fun trying to drive around a car that pings evrytime you put it under load.
  18. Start off by checking the health of your engine with a compression test. That will determine whether everything else is worth doing now. If the compression test isn’t good, you will need to have a look at the bottom end. The motor I described above never had the bottom end touched. Then it would be port and polish the head with a shave to raise compression, camshaft of your choice ( err toward the milder range), extractors and a 1 3/4 inch exhaust. If you know a good machinist, get your flywheel lightened. Carbs are not hard, the accelerator linkage is the hardest bit. You don’t need to change to an electric fuel pump. The standard fuel pump is fine
