  1. No I have never seen them. Only the KE20 style. Surprised the Thai guys haven't woken up to making them.
  2. Essentially brand new. Fitted up but only driven around the block. Too low and stiff for my taste so went back to a more conservative option $125 Canterbury 3126
  3. What is a semi grout filled block?
  4. So we are in the new place as of yesterday, and the AE86 is the first to make it across today. Got an unregistered single use permit and drove across via the “most direct route”. Of course initially the car didn’t want to start, but some new 98 octane sorted that out. Then on a tentative initial excursion there was a bit of a rattle from the front right. Turned out the top nut on the damper insert was slightly loose. Then the drive across. Hella fun to drive after all this time! The other two will now need to come on a truck and then I can get things underway at last
  5. You can get one piece gaskets rather than the standard 2 piece which is a really good thing. They are called extractor gaskets, with numerous suppliers on ebay, but repco etc probably have them too
  6. If you mean the levin orange, I can get you the paint code in a few days
  7. The answer is give myself more space (it’s jammed down the side of my shed), wait till daylight, and flick them both down. Bit of a tap with the hammer and we are away
  8. All my manuals are in storage at present. Can someone remind me how to back off the rear drums on a KE1x, they are pretty seized I’ve got it up in the air with the wheel off and trying to flick the notched wheel on the cylinder through the two access holes in the backing plate? Flick it up or down?
  9. Has anyone used the rubbers from Phil’s in a KE1x or KE2x. Interested in fitment. I seem to recall that the RX3 springs are meant to fit in a KE2x so possibly the rubbers may fit. I’ve got some urethane ones I got from Japan, but unsure whether to use those or actual rubber. Have gone away from urethane everywhere else.
  10. Getting ready for our big move to the new three car garage (with attached house). Despite regularly popping out to talk to them all, I’m sure they were starting to doubt me. Reminds me I really should give them names. Here’s no.1 poking her nose out after seeing sunlight for the first time in a long time So a day of freeing up jammed calipers and the like. I did wonder why it was so hard to push, but then found this! It was fine when I last moved it about 3 yrs ago. In my defence, it was hidden up against the side fence. Not looking forward to moving my parts store, but am looking forward to a short blast in the AE86 on a temporary permit, and getting that on a club permit at last.

    KE2x lock set

    That’s a good point. They KE2x are circliped, and look very similar to the one you posted. Did the KE70 replace the Corona well? There are subtle differences in the profile of the facing I think but I can live with that. No surprise, but the Thai offerings are no good as they don’t sit properly in the hole
  12. Hi all. I’m on the look out for a lock set to suit a 3 door KE20/25. Either with or without the ignition lock and hopefully with a key. Either pickup or post to Melbourne.
  13. Christ almighty! Well one needs to get into the Xmas spirit. What exactly are your plans!
  14. The 4AGE diagnostics manual is still hosted on AEU86.org along with other 4AGE manuals. The link is still working https://www.aeu86.org/technical/ae86-manuals/
  15. Ignore these prices. Usually inaccurate
  16. Was chilling on the couch so looked them up for you on toyodiy This is a 1982 TE72 There are 3 seals inner seal 63252-12010. On search doesn’t come up at Amayama outer seal for glass panel 63251-12010. $AUD250.96 outer seal for metal panel 63251-12020. $AUD270.59
  17. Always interested in parts but am in Melbourne. A bit far to buy the shell unfortunately
  18. Where is it, how much is it, are there any parts coming with it. SL shells are no different to non SL
  19. Is it a genuine sunroof or aftermarket? I recently bought a new seal from Toyota for my AE86 via Amayama. I would be relatively surprised if you can still get one for a TE72 but you never know. Have a look at the part diagrams on Toyodiy.com You can put the part number into Amayama and get an indication if it is still available or not. Exterior trims i suspect will not be available but same story
  20. I was wondering if you were affected by the fires, but do realise NSW is a big place!j
  21. Wow that is a beauty. don't underestimate the 2TC. I had one in a Celica many years ago and with basic head work plus compression, mid range cam, exhaust, lightened fly wheel and twin Weber side draft carbs it screamed. Plus assuming you are US based, a 3TC upgrade gives you 200 extra cc. This sort of work isn’t hard, and is hella fun. The ‘modern’ way is to install a newer EFI engine, but bolting the engine/trans/diff in is the easy bit. The fuel and electrical systems are not. And unless you can do this yourself, will cost quite a bit. And then you may also need to look at upgrading brakes etc. With the T engine, the brakes can probably remain with an overhaul and better pads. Do some reading around the forum and go from there. Oh, and welcome! Keep us updated perhaps with a build thread.
  22. How awesome is that. He has some interesting stuff on there, not much of which I can afford!
  23. Oh very droll..... Massive huntsman ended up in the car, wasn’t too happy his cosy home was disturbed.
  24. And this doesn’t include all the door and rear quarter glass...... Offsite storage, best money ever spent.
