    7k Sprinter Build

    Yeah to me i don't want to kill the feel of the car. I've had ke1x with rack and pinion and driven 4a powered ones also, and i think you start to lose the car. With a few small mods plus it wont be running a/c p/s etc like the do in the vans it'll be more than enough. And at the end of the day i don't want to do anything non reversible Fiiinally tracked down this little bastard. I was not familiar with the setup when i ordered the master, and it's different to anything else i've ever played with but it works. Now just need to make the new front brake lines and get new hoses made and it can go for an exhaust

    This one was factory manual and owned by an old lady who worked at Cadburys down here since new until a while ago then went through a couple of owners. Someone spent a bit on it at some point to attempt rego but unsure why as there is zero way it would ever pass with the level or rust thing had, even in the front rails etc near battery. Was certainly worth buying though just for the parts value alone. Just a shame as it would have been a very nice car at some point... Probably my favorite colour they came in too

    Been stripping and parting my parts car the last few weeks and storing a lot of bits to eventually restore the (ke16) wagon i picked up last year. Now have a 55000 mile old full driveline to slot in with a bottom end rebuilt 1k also as well as rebuilt master and drums also. Unfortunately a super poorly repaired, very big rear ender in the past and rust in literally every part of the shell made it useless as a car again. Only thing remaining in it when it went to scrap was the fuel tank. Currently waiting on my brake master fitting to rock up before i can progress any further on the Sprinter.

    Ke70 panhard rod. can't get it off

    I’m assuming if it’s spinning and not coming out you’ve stripped the bolt? Try jamming something behind the head of the bolt and lever on it to apply pressure as you try and unwind it, helps at times

    KE30 - 3RZ

    It wasn’t much, just hole sawed the support in the centre of bonnet for clearance. If you spaced crossmember down would clear.

    KE30 - 3RZ

    The issue isn’t so much length, they’re not that long really no worse than a lot of other 4 cylinders. The issue is they have a long stroke being 2.7 4 cyl which makes them quite tall My mate had a 3rz in his ke70 and the bonnet needed to be modified to clear part of the rocker cover as it hit..

    All brake hardlines done. Just need to get softlines made Rear end has had crash damage ever since i bought it. drivers rear sat in about 2-3" from the bootlid and tailight was twisted in. Mrs's old man came round and pulled it all out and all lines up well now! only needs minor finishing off when the time for paint comes

    Been hammering on this pretty flat out lately, A lot is done but still a bit to go.. Floor has all been undercoated and currently in the process of making all the hardlines for the dual circuit master. Have remade the section from diff to master now need to do the fronts Car now has an interior just needs a seatbelt putting back in. I'm not a fan of the colours but the plan is to get the car retrimmed when it gets resprayed sometime after rego Hopefully i'll be taking to get an exhaust made in a few weeks time Also had a quick go at cleaning up one of the wheels, looks like they'll come up quite nicely
  9. Although this is quite a different interesting topic, I'm wondering what the go with that ke11 is! Is it on here and i've missed it?

    EVA foam toolbox inserts

    I’d thought about doing similar with mine as everything rolls everywhere when you move the drawer. Where did you find the foam? My local bunnings etc don’t have it that I can see

    Been a bit busy lately but been slowly chipping away at things Entire body loom and dash loom had to be removed due to being messed with and missing plugs/ damage.. Rewired most of one from scratch to suit the tacho dash i'll be putting in it. And everything on the dash works. Have modified the standard 1k aircleaner to fit over the 4k carb and ordered a rebuild kit for it as the acc pump seal is knackered. Should have that done this weekend Started assembling the front end stuff now. The gf's dad is a panelbeater and welded up the rust in the front guards and front pockets so I can assemble the panels ready for rego. Just a bit of surface rust around one hinge to clean up before I hang the panels

    I'll be getting my cam reground through camtech cams. I'm not expecting anything amazing but i'd like to see what it's like and considering the motor was free don't mind trying I''ll be going with the 529-110a It's never going to be overly rev happy but it was super punchy in the van compared to a 4k that's for sure The wheels are actually in very good condition. It's like an oxide build up on the alloy which rubs straight off with steel wool! So i'll just be sanding through the grades to around 1800 and then polish them. If you're needing to sandblast anything Bunnings now sell an ozito at home sandblasting gun and media for around $35 that attatches to your existing air compressor and looks just like a paint gun basically.. Tried my old mans on a few small parts and worked pretty well so may be worth a try!

    The master is GD galant vacless Requires sides and bottom of flange to be shaved down to fit into that section of the firewall, holes slightly drilled out in master to line up with the firewall and the bore hole to be drilled to 36mm with a step drill. Super easy to do and easily revertable back to stock also

    Dual Circuit Master. Minimal mods required, still easily revertible to stock. Just need to make up hard lines

    K50 into 5k Ka67 Carina? Manual Swap.

    You’ll probably need to pull it out for comparison to know what you’re looking at Aren’t the carina based on a corona platform so an st141/ rt142 pedalbox May be the closest? Although they are hydraulic.
