  1. Hi all, I have a 1981 KE70 and need to know what gearbox oil to use (it has a 4k engine with a 5 speed manual trans). I have done quite a bit of research in the forum, but I need to be sure Is it 80W90 or 75W80 or something else? Any other variable to worry about when choosing the oil? Thanks! Looking forward to your answers
  2. I decided to replace my front shockies due to a major leak which caused a failed warrant of fitness. So i ripped into bnt and ordered a full set thinking all would be all cool.... Backs went in piece of piss... But to cut a long story short the front struts were completely different to the ones that i ordered. Apparently the ones i ordered were factory Carina inserts, but they have no seat for the spring?! Surely i shouldn't have to weld one on? so I'm guessing somebody along the line has converted the fronts to ke70 struts maybe?! I'll attach the struts in comparison and the list the part numbers. Because both struts have different part # Any help on the part numbers would be ideal! Please and thank you(:
  3. hi guys I am starting to gather everything before i start the conversion. I'm new to rotors so any help would be great. motor is N/A out of a s2 rx7. I'm just learning i need to fit an oil cooler into the ke which I am assuming i can purchase aftermarket. does anyone know much about an air pump. i know squat about em but do i need one to get engineer cert in NSW. cheers.
  4. Hello rolla fans, my name is Nick, i'm 30 years old and i'm from Greece. For few weeks now I'm proud owner of a Corolla KE70. Because i'm working full season I brought the car but I haven't see it or touch it yet (because i'm working in a island) so my best friend did all the papers etc and have it on his garage. The plan on this beauty going for Drift Project but for now i'm trying to fix it. Off topic : Because the rear wheels has more offset than the front I heard that you can add fenders from Golf MK1 is that true and if yes from the front or from the rear? Thanks Nick.
  5. Need help lowering a ae71/Te72/ke70 Wagon, can’t find anything for the rear leaf spring, been to 5 shops and not one had the right ubolts I needed, does anyone know of a kit so I can lower my wagon? She sits on enkei 92’s but I’d love to go lower and slam her on some 14’s
  6. Hi.. RollacLub Friends. i have questions my KE70 4K Engine (General Spec) 1.Rear Brake Light off 2.Engine Round Gauge (x1000 RPM) is off 3.Light Gauge is off (normal light & sign light eg.. Left / Right) 4.Wire broken by cut or incorrect link 5.i'm not sure my wire connectors & pin are correct, because i don't have KE70 Electrical Wiring Diagram. Please help me. Thankyou.
  7. Hey all, I am interested in knowing what the difference is between all the 4AGE's. I have a KE70 which I always planned to put a SR20DET into.. I do have a blown SR20 at home that was in my Nissan but the usual story I spun a bearing so I don't know if it is worth fixing that and putting it in the Corolla or putting a 4AGE in. I am not educated on the types of 4AGE's, but I have just been offered by someone I work with a 16V Smallport 4AGE out of a front wheel drive corolla for $1000. He may also have an ECU and Gearbox to go with it for abit extra. Help educate me hahaha. Thanks in advance. :)
  8. Ok so here is my issue, Not long ago I bought a KE70, replaced the carburettor to twin su with lynx manifold, bought new headers etc. It ran once. Fast forward a week after that when my mate was around and I wanted to show off my mental 4into1 headers and how loud it was, wouldn't start though I might have been out of fuel, filled it up with some juice, still nothing. after a while of cranking it started, but was minimal (like, maybe 100) rpm, so low you could still crank it and it was ok with it. then it died. checked the distrubitor, rotor button was spinning freely, and points had weak spark, no problems. I'll switch it to an electronic distributor, get a bosch module, bosch GT40r coil, electronic dizzy, followed Jackbyo's mad guide to install a new electronic distributor (hence why I went with the coil and module I did) but still no spark, not from the coil, tested it with the old spark against the block or bolt head trick as well. made sure my wiring was all ok, still no spark. Re did the ground leads to the battery neg terminal and the engine earth, still no spark. Checked timing a million times ( the old rough TDC then rotor to spark lead one in the cap) ((dunno if that helps with anything)) I'm not great when it comes to car electronics, i've read that bad starters can draw too much power and kill spark so I'm thinking that might be my problem? Anyhow, this thing is killing me, the fact that it ran once, but not any more is driving me mental and ive scoured just about every lead I can think of. So now i'm coming to you lot for advice and hoping that you guys can point me in the right direction in regards to ideas or things ive missed that I should check Cheers in advance! ~Ethan
  9. Hi, I recently acquired a KE70 with a (I believe) 4AGE big port red and black top 16v (although not certain since rockers have been painted) with a t50 box. Problem is, reverse lights don't seem to come on, and upon inspection found nothing to be connected to the two-pronged plug thing on the gearbox. I have no idea where to get started on this problem, how to wire it up, where it should go into the loom, etc. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers!
  10. My fuel tank in my 1982 flat front converted ke70 panel van is F****d and i need a replacement. Does anyone have a spare or know of people putting a different one in that fits straight up or minor modification needed to make it work??? please any info would br great as I've not seen any anywhere.....
  11. Hey everyone, i have just got myself a 1982 Ke70 toyota corolla CS it has a 4k, also has a ae86 front end and ae86 rear springs and diff has been welded, pretty sure everything else is stock was just looking for a few more power/jdm mods i could do if anyone knew of any from more power to style
  12. Hey guys I need some advice on what to do because I've been having problems starting my ke70 wagon recently. It struggles to start and when it does the engine shakes , car dies and the idle is rough as hell for like a min. Also the carby has apparently been replaced along with spark plugs by the previous owner so I don't think they could be the issue.
  13. Hey guys, I'm new to this forum let alone cars in general so i apologise in advanced if my lingo sounds bad. I'm purchasing my first ke70 as a project car, the car has a locked differential (which i assume is the same as a welded differential), obviously locked differentials are illegal in victoria however if i were to register this car how easy would it be to swap a differential to make it roadworthy? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  14. hey everyone, so I've installed a new tacho instruments cluster into my ke70, it had the good'old quartz clock cluster, and everything works, but the fuel gauge, I don't remember if the old one worked (still have in just encase there is part failure), but I've taken out the rear tail-lights cause I'm doing rust repair, and I noticed that the fuel gauge wasn't moving and staying in the off position, when the car is running, all the other things in the cluster work cause Toyota just used a standard wiring loom for all KE70's. so the question is, does the fuel gauge wire run though the tail-lights wiring? not 100% sure. and I can't find a wiring diagram that says anything about it, so if anyone knows please let me know. I know that the loom in all together all the way to the back of the car where it splits of to the fuel pump and lights, and the lights split off the right light so does the fuel gauge work the same way. so is it a parts failure or a plug not being plugged in. I really don't want to take the cluster surround out again wiring loom split for lights (top plug) and fuel pump (bottom plug)
  15. Hey guys!! I'm lookingto buy a new speedometer cluster for my DX Corolla. Not worried about the 'factory look' any recommendations or links to sites would be fantastic!!
  16. hey guys, just curious how much work is involved in swapping my 1981 ke55 rectangle headlights for quad headlights like in the ke70 corollas. i know i need lights brackets and the grille. but wondering if it will all fit. thanks in advance
  17. Hello Some time in the future, I plan to get a Corolla Ke70 as a first car. After some searching, I luckily found one swapped with a 4AG-E Blacktop. Being someone's frankenstein, many parts will definitely be refurbished or replaced with a help of a friend. But one part that concerns me the most. The T50 gearbox, as everyone knows, is fragile and ages horribly. Due to this, I want to replace it with another trans as soon as I get it. But this time, not a T50 again. I found a transmission adapter that allowed me to connect the 4AG-E to a W58 transmission. This, along with a bunch of W58 transmissions being sold for ~$480 is quite a deal. Here's the link: http://www.sq-engineering.com/4age-to-w5x-gearbox-adapter-kit.html With the introduction done, here's the actual point of this post (Ke70 questions). On a small note, I have relatively low knowledge on cars. Due to this, some of my questions may sound quite general. 1. Will I have to make any clutch mods if I were to do this W58 transmission mod? 2. How will I manage a driveshaft for a Supra gearbox and Corolla differential? Will I have to cut and wield them together? 3. If I were to get aftermarket parts (e.g. LSD, half shafts, etc.), will AE86 parts do just fine? 4. I haven't researched much, but from what I can tell, in a 4AG-E conversion for a Ke70, only the engine and gearbox is changed. The driveshaft, differential and axles are unchanged, right? 5. If - by any chance - I will have to replace the rear axle to accomodate the gearbox and driveshaft, what car's driveshaft will be compatible with the Ke70? That's my main questions so far. I'll come add more I have more questions. Thanks
  18. Name: Mitchell Car: 1982 Toyota Corolla KE70 Motor & Driveline: stock 4k-c auto, soon to be manual 4 speed Suspension & Brakes: stock Wheels & Tyres: stock Interior: Vinyl Back seats, Front Cotton ripped so got sheep skin covers on them now has bucket seat for driver and AE86 ADM passenger seat Body: got a lot of rust in the boot, and doors, swapped the front doors to AE71 doors , I think they look way better. it has only one of the original doors left Other: I got the car because it was cheep and they are easy to fix. also my Mum, Dad and Grandma, had one each all at the same time back in the 80's, so I grew up hearing about the cars. My Mum and Grandma, both had KE70 sedans and they were the light blue colour ones. They both got them the same day from the same dealership and the number plates were different by one number so my mum got the door rubber guards so they could tell them apart. My dad had the AE71 Wagon, and he told me just the other day, (these are his words not mine) "The 5 speed wagons flew, I was once going on a camping trip with your Mum, going up to Queensland, and I was going down a mountain, and there was not a single soul on the road, so I just floored it. I got pulled over doing 170 kph, and the cop said I'm not gonna give you a ticket cause no one is gonna believe me that a toyota can go that fast. I got off with a warning." XD I'm upgrading the transmission to the t-40 4 speed manual, the auto still works, but slow, the engine it self is overrated, the car is also in half good nick, lots of rust but nothing that can't be cut out or rust converter put on it. The car was owned buy a nun and a co-worker of the nun, only driven on weekends to church, got it off an old lady. comes from South Australia, Adelaide, now in Victoria Melbourne. needs a paint, the parts are all good, no dents, only rust holes, and their not visible, needs a good fix, I have a YouTube channel that I'm showing the build of it. starting to look good. https://www.youtube....prnt8QAB67Fzycw
  19. Does anyone know what these struts are from? I tried fitting them into my AE71 a while ago and the top bolts had a larger pattern and stud to the AE71. The bottom fit to the steering knuckle however it has that little extra space underneath, i don't know whether that would be an issue? Anyway i believe these may have come from a RA60 celica or some model Corona. The Strut says: TOYOTA JAPAN, JY-30S The caliper says: B, 4XF, 2204 This is all from the R side strut

    Ke Auto Build

    Hello Finally I have gained some motivation and time to start my build! I will have pictures coming soon. This blog is mainly so I have a record of what my car has been thru with me haha Cheers and welcome to my build.
  21. hey guys ive got it on the rollaclubs main site http://www.rollaclub...nsmission-swap/
  22. hey everyone I'm doing a auto to manual transmission swap and I got the transmission of a guy and I only just realized that it doesn't have any of the transmission wiring. Does anyone have a diagram of the loom so i could make one up or anyone know where I can get a wiring loom for the transmission? looking for the wiring in the photo, not the clutch cable, I have that. I'm literal ready to put it in and I don't have the thing to make it run, the wires. so please help someone.
  23. I bought this KE70 october last year (2015), and tought id make a build thread now. Its been a year and i have done some modifications to it. Gotten a lot of help looking at different threads here on Rollaclub, so thougt i'd just publish it. A little warning tho, I'm not a professional mechanic and I'm kinda learning as i go, I've had mopeds that I've worked on and a bmw that i kept ''hellastock''. So yeah I've gradually moved on to what in my eyes are more difficult things. And i have gotten a lot of help from my father who is a mechanic. Thought id just make a fast foward in pictures and some comments from when i bought it to where it sits now. Bought it like this, from a 60-70 year old man who inherited the car when his father died 10 years ago. it had 63 000kms on it. It has some body rust as far as i can see, the previous owner did some not that good rust repair with fiberglass, sikaflex and non color coded silver paint :huh: Drove it home, here parked next to my bmw i had at the time. An acquaintance of mine had some typically ''Jdm rims'' that i could try on the car, many of them were too wide but there were some ssr mesh that seemed like a good size. The car seemed even higher on these wheels, in the second picture he jumped into the trunk. :P Thought it looked a lot better now tho :D Had a little fun :laff: Stock 4k-C painted the top of the airfilter Changed the steeringwheel and added some other bits, the keychain thingy turned out to be super annoying so i took that down. And i changed the original radio for a more modern Pioneer with aux :) Winter hit! :D Ssr's are off and stock winter wheels are on And it hit harder.... got some rust over this winter, In the winter theres a lot of salt on norwegian roads :no: Never had any problems starting in the morning tho! Decided to remove the black trim along the sides of the car. Looked better in my opinion, but some of the glue is stil on the car, havent gotten some of it off yet. In the front some glue even ripped the paint off 8S This one might get a little hate.. but i changed the rear muffler, its not too loud idling and on lower rpm, but is way too laud on higher, gonna install another muffler in front of it afterwards. Wanted speakers in the rear too, the original material behind the seats were way too thin to hold two speakers, so i made a new plate out of wood, after the picture was taken i stapled black cloth around it, looks lowkey. sad I don't have a picture of that. I ended up buying those Ssr's and got them powdercoated in candy red, when the light hit them at the correct angle they glow :) On the car Wanted to lower it so i bought a complete suspesion from another ke70, thinking I'd just chop that set, never liked the idea of chopped springs tho. But then a coilover set for a carina TA60 popped up and i bought them, very bad condition tho. Installed some fender mirrors and made a bracket for where the old mirrors sat. Also got myself a lip, The lip is powdercoated so it's not the same color nor metallic, but it was free I'm probably going to paint the whole car afterwards anyway :) The coilovers got sandblasted and had ordered some ae86 5.1kg rear springs from technotoytuning and some kyb ae86 schock inserts for the coilovers. All of it is getting powdercoated black for the max stealthyness :D Ran into a problem with the shock inserts, the ae86 schocks were a bit longer than the TA60, we ended up cutting out the bottom of the tube and welding it in further down. And that meant installing it was next, me and my father did this over a weekend :) got some rear Koni adjustable rear shocks for the te71 for the rear. And had to buy new calipers becouse it just wouldnt be cheaper to rebuild the original ones. Old vs new rear springs Coilover refurbished Back and front wheelwells now Lowered in the rear, got an original Hella grill straight from the 80's :D Lowered onto the ground had to roll the rear fenders, a lot. :D This is how it sits now, the car got really stiff and the original seats just bounce you around, so i went ahead and bought a k sport seat. Its used but it seems to be in okey condition and i got new seat rails :) haven't figured out how to mount it yet tho, the KE70 have a wierd way to mount the orinial seat. So if anyone have done that before and have any tips about that id apreciate it :)
  24. Hi all, This is my first post and I'm kinda new around here but I thought I'd start documenting my 1981 Toyota Corolla Ke70 build and everything else that comes along with it :wasted: So i bought my little poo brown corolla about a month or two down in Gosford (I live in Sydney) with around 69XXX genuine kms on it off some dude looking like dis, high in the air, but on stock steelies: It was in pretty good condition bar a few dings, had close to no rust, deep dish steering wheel, new alloy radiator and started and ran! Had a pretty dodgy drive back home as the thing pretty much didnt have brakes :wave: I wish I took photos of them but it was metal on metal and looked like it had been that way for a long while... Anyway got her home and did a few things like changed the sludge (oil) in the old 4K motor, did all new pads, shoes, drums etc, the rear shocks were blown so I put some cheap shit ones in to get me through, cut 2 coils out of each of the springs for dope appeal, a AJPS adjustable panhard rod and put some 13x7" shoes on her and thats how she sits up until today: Lovin the roof racks and the granny spec louvre :lovin: After installing the Ae71 Tacho Dash, I cut the dash and centre console to fit 3 52mm gauges (which I haven't gotten around to buying yet... no real point) a double din touch screen Head deck. Also installed some 4inch speakers in the front and 6x9inch speakers in the rear. Purple Haze (Y) I decided i would focus on the suspension and brake work first while i find, buy and build an engine. so i started buying and saving a fairly long list of parts so i could put everything in in one go as it is my daily driver so..... (HOPEFULLY NEXT WEEK!) Anyway, heres what I've bought suspension wise so far: Suspension Parts List Weld on Coilover Sleve Kit (AJPS I believe) Cusco Camber Tops 8kg coils Bilstien dampers Ae86 Hubs and Vented and slotted rotors JDM Ae86 Callipers rebuild with all new seals and pots Braided lines XT130 LCA rebuilt with superpro bushes and new balljoints Ae86 P/S knuckles AJPS RCA's Hardrace Castor Arms TRD Ae86 18mm Rear Swaybar SRI front Strut Brace AJPS tie rod ends, rack rends, rack boots, lock spacer Every front end Superpro bush 6kg Rear coils BC racing rear spring seats (Eventually) Bilstien dampers in the rear All this shit is waiting ready to go and i can't wait to post again with some actual build photos and progress! :thumbsup: :rocknroll:
