Newbie (1/14)



  1. Daily driver with many battle scars. I've had it for a bunch of years and it has variously been lowered, weber'd etc but it's completely stock these days. It was a daily driver until recently when the motor gave up the ghost. Symptoms indicate that a blown head gasket is the most likely problem. It's still driveable but not long term. The chassis has 300,000+ km on it, but the motor has already been replaced once (at $50, a new secondhand motor was cheaper than a set of gaskets!). I installed Jaycar high energy ignition kits on all my old cars, and this one has one. Brilliant!! never need to adjust points! Let's call it a kill switch .. you can just see it nestled in where the radio was.I'll include a spare motor I bought a few years ago for this very occasion .. I was told that it had "recently ish" had new rings etc. It will swap straight over but I have neither the time nor the inclination these days. I will include all the spares/bits I've accumulated through the years .. from memory: 32 DIR weber downdraft complete with adapter plate for the 4AC (this was a pretty decent mod) Two 32/36 weber downdrafts - one was part way through a rebuild before something else became a higher priority. OEM carb that "most likely" works okay (I don't remember whether I've actually ever used it). Short stroke rear shocks + a complete set of chopped springs from, when I was working out what would be a good rate/length. I always intended to get Industrial Springs to make me some custom ones based on these as they're damn near perfect for a well handling but stull useful AE71. The bits that can be seen missing from the dash in the photos. Various other bits and pieces .. there's a spare head complete with rocker cover, cam, a distributor, a couple of distributor caps etc I'll most likely remove the headunit and parcel shelf speakers before it goes, so they're not included in the price. Currently registered until 7th June. It'll also go on gumtree in the next couple of days. cheers
  2. Sorry... wrong time of the year to remember to pay attention to forums! Louvre: ooh .. $20? I'm actually away tomoz for a week or so .. plenty of time to think it over :)
  3. haven't been here in a while ... still have the AE71 hack, but it's time to clean out a bunch of shed occupying bits ... AE71 sedan rear window louvre - no clips though 32 DIR weber downdraft on a 4A manifold (ie: with an adapter) still attached to the head (which prolly needs valve guides .. motor was a bit smokey) . was working a treat when I pulled the motor for replacing. . never got around to putting it on the new motor though. various weber bits - from memory: a 32/36 pretty much complete, another almost complete might be a K adapter plate in there Some other bits and pieces of indeterminate state :) Complete motor without head - if you want it. It needs rings at least. $100 the lot oh four wun zero 84 zero 722 if you're interested :) (bits are in Devon Park)
  4. hey there .... I'm looking for a left-hand rear door for an AE71 sedan with functional glass in Adelaide or surrounds. white would be awesome but colour doesn't reeaaaaaallllly matter :) I've busted the glass in mine and, quite frankly, it'd be easier to change the whole door than piss-fart around swapping glass over!! cheers, Slapper
  5. just the one that's running :) rotor button's okay .. I have a spare. let me know when and I'll organise a trailer - no urgency though .. whenever :)
  6. righto .. what's your timeframe on pulling the running one out of the car? not really interested in the one without the head - unless you're talking about moving them as a pair. cheers
  7. hmmm .. roughly how many k's on the motors? what sort of nick are they in? cheers
  8. pretty sure a single cam 1600 replacement (ie. the 4AC) is an inspection job (1600 twin-cam needs to be engineered) - at least, that was the case last time I looked which was probably 6 ish years ago. You'll need to book it in. It's a "roadworthy" inspection so the car will have to be in good shape. 3K/4K can go to 5K with just a phone call to advise the new motor. There's a bulletin specifically related to engine changes in Corollas - can't remember the number though. Not sure if bulletins are available online now .. they might be. cheers, Slapper
