Real Name

  1. Hey fellas, I'm about to install my clutch master in the KE55. I purchased an S13 clutch master and going to be mounting to standard ke55 manual pedal. Does anybody know the best way of measuring and positioning or has anybody done this before and have a drill template?? Cheers
  2. Hi guys, have a 1980 ke55 and I just took the motor out and replaced it with one from a ke70 while using the ke55 cam, carb, distributor, head etc. Has new coil, points, condenser, cap, rotor, leads, seals, headgasket etc. Timing set to 8degrees btdc, points set to 0.4mm, valve clearances set cold. Starts fairly easily and can rev in neutral easily like it used to but if i give the accelerator a few jabs it dies until it returns to idle, also when I take it for a test drive it doesn't want to rev easily and dies when I go over around 3000rpm. Just wondering if you guys can give me some tips or what your thoughts are on the problem and how to fix it? First time posting on here so hope this is the right section, thanks.
  3. Hey fellas, Another question about me old conversion. Trying to figure out the best way to run a clutch cable to my sr trans. Would you guys suggest buying standard clutch cable and modifying or any other ideas from the guys who have done it before?? Cheers
  4. Hey guys, I'm in the middle doing an Sr conversion into my ke55 and I'm trying to figure out what's best for fuel system. Whether to use inline or in tank fuel pump. Which one you guys recommend. Also what size fuel line for feed and return. Cheers
  5. Hi everyone I'm new here on rollaclub.com and wanna begin my adventure with classic Corollas. I have some project on my head that I'd like to get advise on. Basically I was wondering if KE55 Liftback and KE55 Coupe have the same bolts patterns so it's possible to swap their front ends: hood, guards, grill, headlights etc from liftback to coupe). Frogeye Coupe was avaulavble only in Japan but I'd like to make my own here in Oz. Tanks in advance for your replies! Cheers Peter
  6. Hi Fellas, I've been trying to figure out which radiator will fit in my KE55 with Sr20de. Measurements for s13 radiator if i set it hard up against the front would be too high for bonnet to close. Are there any alternatives with correct inlet/outlet orientation that will fit or should i try and fit the s13 radiator further back off the rail and put thermos on front?? What have you guys done. Cheers
  7. Hey guys, My spark plug tubes are worn through at the plug end and no longer seal at the top because nothing is holding them down. Does anyone know part numbers or who might supply them etc. Much appreciated. heres a vid of my KE55 after powerspark ignition mod, and DIY 2 inch exhaust i welded up :P
  8. Hey guys ive been reading through all the forums loking at all your engine swaps, I love my ke55 but the motor has shat it self bent 2 rods and snapped 1 would It be better to rebuild the top end and where do I get the parts if so ? Also would it be better to replace the motor if so what is the best and cheapest ? TIA
  9. G'day So I've got a '78 KE55 Liftback here, and am in need of a replacement rear left window. The problem: I've tracked down a piece that looks like it will match, but it's being sold as a KE50 part- can anyone tell me if this will fit? Having a bugger of a time finding out. Cheers!
  10. I always like having a big battery in my cars. If you ever run into carby troubles you can easily flatten a small standard battery trying to start it, or if your alternator or wiring isn't fantastic then it can give you a bit of extra juice before you go flat. It's also handy for the times you build an engine and crank it without ignition to get oil through it. I measured up the battery tray and room available in my KE30, went down to Autobarn and looked at what they had on the shelf. I went from a standard MF43 battery (238Wx138Dx186H) with 360CCA to a SuperCharge MF52 (237Wx171Dx182H) with 650CCA. Fits perfectly with a new 7" battery clamp. I started a new page on the wiki for batteries: http://www.rollaclub..._Series/Battery (inb4 someone criticises me for adding 4.5kg of sprung weight to the front of my car)
  11. My ke55 engine was knocking off chop so decided to rip it out and try to find the problem before it gets any worst. When taking off the sump this fell into the bottom and I have no idea what it's from. Anyone got some ideas before I have to go looking?
  12. Hey guys, Ive just brought a 1978 Ke 55 Coupe for $1600. I had one years ago and always wanted another one so this is my news project. Unfortunately I need a bunch of parts to get it up to scratch and I'm wondering how interchangable the parts area between the different KE models,and the Sedans/coupes/wagons. At the moment I'm focusing on the body. The parts I need are: front and rear bumper bars front and rear seats left and right wing mirrors. dash board Is it possible to take these parts from other KE models? Thanks
  13. hi guys! first time posting on the site! i need some help, i have just bought my first car, a yellow Ke55 manual and i want it to be sitting just right! i was wondering what the best set up would be for lowering it and how much it could cost me? Please help!! :)
  14. Sorry if this has been posted before but my brake booster has just carked it. Will any other brake boosters easily bolt straight in or do I need to stick to KE55? Reconditioning looks to cost around $270 (Lismore area).. Ouch.
  15. I'm still in the planning phase of what i'm going to be doing to my ke55, it's going to mainly be a street car with occasionally track time for fun. I'm thinking about putting in a half cage/harness/bucket seat. I was wondering whether people think this is actually safe in a car that will be driven on the street? as i have seen a lot of debate about it. The cage would be properly padded and harness set up correctly. Reasons for wanting the cage: -To me if wearing the harness properly and decent/proper padding on cage it seems safer in a crash (or is this not the case if not wearing a helmet) -A lot of track days i have seen need at least a half cage to take a passenger -I like the whole look of a cage and harness setup Thoughts? On a similar note, people thoughts on stitch welding the car whilst it's stripped down (safe/not safe for street car)? Cheers, Eli
  16. hey rolla group, just wondering if any one had ever changed a ke55 steering box to a rack n pinon set up out of a ke70 or any thing else about the same size ,and how easy or hard was it, and did you leave the same steering colum,
  17. Hey guys, Just wanting to get some advice regarding using velocity stacks on a 4age, whether or not this is legal/engineerable? (just running the stacks, not inside plenum) on an 4age 20v blacktop going in a ke55. (located vic) Just trying to do all my research before buying parts and before talking to an engineer. i know you have to keep all emissions gear with the engine conversion and i know i read somewhere you can have pod filter or cai but not both. Just trying to figure out what area velocity stacks fall into? Cheers
  18. Hi Guys, I recently bought a Calypso Blue KE55. All going well until brake lights stopped working. Suspected dodgy stereo install from previous owner. Fuses keep blowing as soon as I replace them. Have removed all sub and amps to isolate problem. Still blowing fuses immediately and draining battery. Suspect a voltage leak somewhere. Unplugged brake pedal switch and still measuring 12 volts across the fuse holder. Can anyone recommend a decent auto electrician (inner west / artarmon) or solution to my problem? Cheers, Tim
  19. To swap ke70 extension housing onto ke55 or vice versa is it just a straight swap of housings and it will shift fine or will there need to be adjustments to any linkages inside ?
  20. Hey i have a 1980 ke55 and want to do an engine conversion, Just wanted to get some feedback on good conversions? What engines fit the problems i could have. Ive been told by a mate to put a AE86 engine in ????? stuck >.<
  21. Hey, Just wondering what methods you guys use for flushing the entire fuel system? I've got a ke55 and the fuel has been sitting in i for quite a while.
  22. hey guys I'm new here and own a buff ke55 cs corolla could anyone tell me what the cs means and if there are any othr badges for the ke55 sedan
  23. I have a ke55 coupe (square headlight) with a 4k-c and k50 was a junior rally now my project to get back on road. I'm keeping the 4k-c and k50 for now (stupid saving for house, i want car parts) under the bonnet I can not find the the reverse light wires. I can see the reverse switch wires coming out of the box its the other side (wiring loom side) i can't seem to find. ive looked under the booster, under the car and am about to check under the carpet in the car (its dirty anyway) this has been the bane of my existence.for about 2 weeks can some one post a pic of what and where its supposed to be. I really think i may be missing a wire or a length of. thanks.
  24. Does anyone know someone in Adelaide that could fabricate some engine mounts for a ke55 ca18det or knows some one that's sells them fairly cheap thanks
