    Haven't been working on this much, been working on other cars or house stuff mostly. Going to re-do brakes to include a ke20 brake proportioning valve to see if it improves them. My coilovers are finished and just need to sort the camber tops now. They've had 4" cut out of the strut tubes to accept short stroke gas inserts which are 100mm shorter in total. Changed the top of the strut body to ke55 so they have external gland nuts making it easier to get the shocks out later on. Hsd weld on sleeve kit fitted also. Pretty happy with them size wise, at 4" lower than stock they're fully captive with the helper spring. Adjustable range is between 2-5" lower than factory so plenty of room to play with ride height.

    KE10 with KE20 discs

    I wrote the wiki conversion years back, struggling to remember now. Far as I remember probably just what I had at the time but fairly sure the bearings are same between them. I just converted my ke17 to ke70 fronts and I used all of the ke70 bearings.

    Exhaust is done. Flanged at extractors and above diff. 2" straight through with one muffler. Went 2" so i can re-use it with the 7k. Due to the bigger ke70 gearbox and the xmember there was no room to tuck it through the gap so he went around. This actually works out better though as i won't have issues when the car see's a t50. And still tons of clearance from exhaust to ground also.

    Brakes are finished and working. May try rebleeding though as i'm not convinced it's full pedal pressure at the moment. Rears need adjusting also as they're dragging but i just wanted to get them working for it to go on the towtruck tomorrow to get the exhaust made Bolted bonnet on and sorted out a new bootlock so that latches also Also re-lettered the radio blanking plate. pretty happy with how it came out

    Battery Terminal

    Yeah I’d assume terminal, it’s what you’d replace before looking into it any further anyway.. I haven’t seen anywhere to buy clamps etc like that however don’t they run a rubber boot of the terminal/s in them anyway? I just use the sca ones. Never had an issue

    One thing I’d suggest is test any thermostat before you put it in. I seem to get 2 faulty ones before I get a decent one these days
  14. Yeah k50s are getting thin on the ground here.. I’ve got a couple and I won’t sell as I probably would struggle to get another. $250 is standard for a 5 speed now. Much the same as ke70 open diffs.. I’ve got one stashed just incase I ever need one again lol
