  1. Ok first up, straight away, I know you forums have a search function and google works well AND people have done it in their build. I HAVE SEARCHED FOR THE LAST 4 HOURS. All I have come up with is a lot of conflicting and not very helpful info. I'm about to buy a ke30 auto (definately!). Now It has a later 3 speed which seems to be the problematic one. I have both ke55 5 speed and 4 speed but that's irrelevant. Now I know you have to cut the tunnel for the selector. Or you get a ke70 5 speed. What I want to know it what is what is the go with the xmember?? If I use the k40/50 what do I need to do? (Xmember wise) If I use a ke70 5apeed what do I need to do? Every thing is vague and only says weld it ora don't use this one or that one. I wouldn't post here if I could find it else where so any help for a struggling brother would be great! Or at least a link to somewhere that clearly points out what can't go with what and what works. I could wing it but I want to know what I'm in for... Thanks
  2. Hi, I need to replace the lower control arm bushes on a KE55. Workshops charge you a fortune to do the job. Is it really a pita for an average skilled person to do the job himself? (I am not an expert mechanic, but I replaced the rear shocks, bushes and leaf springs myself with no problems). Is it necessary to completely remove the LCA from the car? DO the old bushes came off easy? Is a press really needed to fit the new bushes, or a bolt, a pair of large washers and a bit of patience can also do the job? Any advice is really appreciated.
  3. Hi all I've got an electrical problem with my ke35 and i am in no way qualified to be able to fix it. Here's a quick run down of the car and a list of things that is happening. The car has worked 4k (Oversized pistons, Chrome Molly rings, Big end, main,and cam bearings replaced, Reground cam and cam followers, New valves and seats, Double valve springs, Not sure of comp ratio, 200psi per cylinder, Twin DCOE40 webers, 4-1 extractors, New timing chain when rebuilt, Distributer recalibrated). Also running a davies craig electric water pump and fan. When the car is on... Hazard stalk up = all indicators solid light Hazard stalk down = nothing Indicators on = nothing Headlights = blows tail fuse straight away All other electrics work fine (wipers, brake lights, heater, interior light etc..) I have just replaced the indicator/wiper cluster with this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Column-Indicator-Wiper-Switch-Toyota-Corolla-KE30-KE55-Turn-Signal-Blinker-Stalk-/400473613862?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5d3e166626&_uhb=1 as the original one started smoking when the headlights were on. Could this be a ground problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Help fixing it would be even better!!!!!! (i'm in north melbourne)
  4. ok just finished putting the 5k with k50 in my ke55 and surprise of all surprises it wont start. things to consider; there is fuel. jet is ok. there is spark (my heart is still going.....) cam timing is definitely right. so this leaves me at ignition timing. what i need to know is, what is the firing order (can't find it anywhere!)a link to a photo would be best! HELP need the car to run asap as it needs to go off to the shop to get an exhaust from manifold back to be made up and all tuning etc etc before i get my licence back!!!!!
  5. Hi all I'm trying to hunt down a decent bonnet and seats for my ke55 baby. Lemme know how much you want for them, thanks all!
  6. I was doing ablog but i decided to can that and put it here where it shoudl be.... Hey alll. Ive had this car for a while and have been deciding weather or not to spend time and money on it when i have a silvia that is already pretty quick. Ive finally decided to give it a crack and see how i go. Started with: 4k-c 4speed manual noisy as hell diff and gearbox electronic fuel pump Planning to build a car that will be good for motorkhanas and maybe khanacross see how it goes Gonna stick with 4k, mostly just recondition everything nothing too crazy. Mayb cam grind Have a set of extractors to fit - DONE 2" system from extractors to back - DONE Weber 32/36 - DONE Gonna run sigma LCA's - DONE Coil over sleeves at this stage standard brakes reset rear springs minor body work (not tooo concerned on making it look schmik as but that might change later) strip interior - DONE hydro handbrake - DONE welded diff - DONE k50 gearbox - DONE Modified S13 front strut brace fitted
  7. Hey guys. I recently purchased a ke55 completely stock and now I’m looking to do a few upgrades. It’s a 3 speed Auto, so i guess my first question is what type of manual gear box I could fit and how much it would cost (would need a mech to do the work). Other than going manual, what other recommendations would you suggest for increasing power/efficiency. Lastly, driving on the highway for no longer then 10 minutes and the engine went red hot. I pulled over and the radiator reservoir was bubbling. Not sure yet if it’s a thermostat issue or if the old ke isn’t supposed to run at over 90/kph, regardless, I need the car to be able to handle highway use. I appreciate any suggestions, cheers.
  8. Hey Guys, I am going to lock the diff on my ke55 via welding the diff centre. I got a spare matched diff centre and pinion. My question is, how important is it that the specific pinion and crown wheel stay together and how do you adjust the gears together if I'm going to use a different centre with the existing pinion? Havent pulled it apart yet just wanted a bit of an idea before i did it. any help would be apreciated.
  9. Hello, I posted this in my rides thread but ill put it here too, I have recently put a weber 32/36 on my 4k and fitted extractors at the same time. The carby came off a 18RG? i think. I can't get it to idle stable. It seems to be very rich at idle. Have attempted to tune according to basic settings and will continue to surge at idle and when backed off from accelerating will drop and nearly stall. I have checked: 1/ Ignition timing - 10BTDC at idle and advance is working on acceleration. 2/ used starter spray to check for air leaks, couldnt find any. when i replaced it i replaced all gaskets including manifold gasket and used aviation sealant on carby and adaptor plate gaskets 3/ Have checekd jets, it has Primary/Secondary 140/135 mains 160/175 Air 50/55 Idle 4/ it idle very well before carby swap It has an electric fuel pump fitted which worked on standard carby with no problems My questionsn are 1/ Shoud the air jets be larger on the secondary instead of mains? 2/ Do i need a fuel return line, at the moment i have blocked it and i suspect this may be a problem? The red arrow is fuel in The green arrow is blocked fuel return the blue arrow is the vac adavance hose 3/ any other suggestions? Please see youtube video of what it is doing,

  11. Hey guys, just fitted a ke55 cluster in my ke36 as it was a lot cleaner, but now my petrol gauge and temp gauge are on full and sometimes go right down then back up full again, what could cause this?
  12. Hi all, I have a 1979 ke55 corolla sedan with a 4k motor. My clutch recently burnt out, at the worst time (330am whilst heading into town to pick up the missus), anyways I have a clutch on the way and I have no idea how to change it out, I managed to order a gregory manual for the ke55 to come with the clutch kit, just seeing if I could get some help and advice from here. Like what tools will I need, what fluids should I buy before I start etc. Also if people have good knowledge of how to do it, a step by step guide would be awesome! Cheers people, looking forward to the help
  13. Hey all Wondering if anyone has done any hydraulic handbrake set ups. Main reason i ask is to see how it performs with drums on the rear. I can hook it up all good just don't know if its going to be worth it.
  14. Hey guys. Finally got the 5k into my ke55 that i had been working on for a while (the conversion). It is running, and drives- but not well and makes a crazy noise. The noise is like a fast tapping/ rattling noise coming from some where in the middle of the motor. Could anyone suggest what the noise may be, and how sinister it may be? I built the motor myself, it has: -5k block with 5k rods, lifter etc (hydro) -5k SHALLOW DISH pistons -5k DEEP DISH head (standard) -4k valves/ springs (standard) -25/65 270* cam grind -rollamaster timing chain kit -4k ancillaries -shimmed oil pump As far as i can guess the noise may be piston rattling or something because of the huge compression. Any other ideas? Also, the motor does not easily rev far past 4000 revs, not that i have been game to push it. I have the deep dish pistons here but i was initially going to use a 4k head, hence going with shallow dish pistons, and want to avoid swapping them out!
  15. Hey all, Have seen a few people looking but not much else. I'm chasing a mini spool for the Borg Warner 68 in my ke55. Any ideas where to look?? Have had no luck on ebay. Plus any idea how many splines the axles would be? Cheers.
  16. Hi all, just wanting to gather some information on cam selection. i have a 4k motor with a webber 32/36 exhaust and extractors and a mild head recondition. spoke to a bloke today at waggott cam and he reccommended a 212 grind?? just wondering what grind i should look for, i use the car as a daily and i want to get the most out of her. with a nice lumpy idle of course ;) cheers Nathan
