    Ke-30/55 Brake Upgrade

    Yeah I've replaced most of the bushes, installed idler arm, tide rod ends, kings springs, camber tops, and new tyres and rims with wheel balance and alignment and still got the shimmy at 60-70Km/hr. What's next is new shocks, bearings, front swaybar bushes and lower ball joints. Hopefully it will go away. Are you going to improve on the McPherson stru´╗┐t design, or tackle a double wishbone suspension conversion?

    Ke-30/55 Brake Upgrade

    I got some T3 KE30 adjustable camber tops as well. Did you end up lowering the suspension at the front with lower springs or coilovers?

    Ke-30/55 Brake Upgrade

    Yeah, the rx4 calipers have been good for a while now. I did take some photos of the setup, have to find them. Just needed new brake hoses to the calipers going from Toyota to Mazda, and drill out the caliper mounting holes on the strut (same bolt spacing). I had to file a bit of material from the calipers to clear the hub.

    Ke-30/55 Brake Upgrade

    OK, I'm looking into widening the bolt spacing on the KE30 steering knuckles out to 90mm to bolt them to the RA60 struts. Thinking of either welding and re-drilling them, or add inserts and put the locating dowels in. What camber did you end up with? Did you use the Pajero master cylinder with a 1" bore? At the moment I'm running a 0.75" 75-series Tildon master cylinder without a vacuum booster, along with RX4 calipers/slotted KE30 rotors. Needed space with the 3TC with twin carbs.

    KE30 - 3RZ

    I think this guy make some mounts for a 3rz into a ke30: I think I saw it on rollaclub facebook a while back. The 3rz engine seems long for a 4 cylinder. Looks like there's not much room for the radiator/fan when I compared the Hiliux and Corolla.

    Cheapest k engine parts you will ever see

    OK, yeah liteaces with 5k engines here seem pretty rare now. I think those boxes are around 600mm across. Might be worthwhile to get a shipping container full, but the import fees would add up.

    Seen many Tamaraw vans around over there Jeremy? They used to be quite common; used as taxis. They've got a 5K engine.
  14. The price of 4k engines have gone up a bit. Bought one a while ago for $50. Lately I got one for $100, negotiated down from $150. Have seen them advertised for much more. 5k engines are the hardest to find, probably easier to find a 7k.

    Find my KE10

    I checked the rego status here with HIP51: https://www.service.transport.qld.gov.au/checkrego/public/Welcome.xhtml?windowId=6e3 but it's not coming up. Maybe the plate number has changed. There is a vin search, but only for cars made after 1989.
