  2. Hey everyone, though id do a build thread of my ke project, maybe get some advice along the way and get more involved in the community Building it for drift use only, not engineering it for roadworthy purposes Bought it fairly stock, had an s13 front suspension and coilovers and that was it First thing i did was remove the diff centre to weld, got it all welded up but unfortuantly broke on of the spacers between the diff bearing and the housing trying to get it back in Had a real hard time trying to find one to replace it, decided to buy a mates vl commodore that was in a front end crash for $100 for the read end, got the mounts welded onto it and went in pretty well, wheels slightly off centre but easily fixed with a spacer when i measure it up for one. Currently drum brakes on it, will do the VN rear disc conversion soon. also ran into a problem with the rear springs when my dad threw them out thinking they where out of the vl, luckily the front springs off the ke where a good fit to temporarily have it on all 4 wheels to get it into the shed Fitment with out the springs looked sick, unfortunately guards where literally on the tyres Next step i took out the 4k and Got an engine mount from Jordanrolla to fit my 240kw s15 sr20det with s15 6 speed gearbox witch i will be test fitting this week some time, make all the holes and get it all mounted right before i take it all out and begin painting s15 driveline, 240 kw with power fc and garret gt2871r crossmember spacers, 20 mm lower then factory also halfway done getting the interior stripped and all the ac and heater equipment removed as i will not need that to go sideways thinking of a purple and white colour scream, purple bay, white exterior and purple interior Thats it for now, will keep this updated with progress as best as i can and try to get a lot of photos!
  3. Hello! Attention: My english is not good, but I hope you get my point I'm 17 years old car enthusiast from Estonia and I'm having a problem with my KE70. This winter something happened with kick panel fuse box, I opened it and saw that some of the circuits (aluminium parts) had blown. It melted the plastic around the circuits and the fuse box is now a pretty big mess :D, so I don't know which circuits to solder and which not. I would be very thankful if someone, who has the same fuse box, would disassemble it and take pictures of different layers there. I found possible problem and fixed all the wiring harness, so I don't think that the circuits blow again. I would buy new fuse box, but probably I'm only KE70 owner in Estonia(so there are not any parts for sale) and shipping from Australia would be very expensive. Best wishes, Madis
  4. Hey guys, I put some front coilovers into my ke70 over the weekend which are made from 51mm corona struts, however the right hand one has a bit of play which causes a knocking noise whenever I drive it, which feels to be coming from the bearing on the camber top. I'm also getting some spring binding on both coilovers which is not really a massive problem but kind of annoying. Any ideas of how to fix these issues? Thanks Ben
  5. Hey guys, I'm after some parts for my new 1984 Ke70.If anyone has these parts please get in contact because i am more than keen on these parts.I am after bumper bars for the front and back of the slant front ke70.I am also after some taillights. -Cheers.
  6. Hey all, I have recently come into possession of an 1984 model ke70 and the starter motor has seemed to have a pretty hard life and has decided to give out. So now I'm chasing a starter motor for it, I have called up all the local wreckers and haven't been able to come across anything except an ae82 with a 4ac. I was wondering if the starter motor off this would fit my 4k or would even the internals swap over into the 4k starter motor? Thanks for any help
  7. Hello everyone, new to this site, old to Corolla's Where should I begin....... I guess it all started about six years ago; I was thinking about which way I wanted to go with my TE72 project. I kept dreaming of a 4A-GE swap (just like everyone else). Suddenly, like lighting striking my brain, it came to me! I’ll swap in a 5M-GE from an early 80’s Supra. I started doing some research to make sure it was possible to stick the inline 6 under the hood. I managed to find two blurry photos of 7M-GTE’s in TE72’s. That was more than enough proof for me. First I needed to find a running supra to swap the parts from. I searched and searched, but was always disappointed, because each car would be missing a critical element to my swap. Once, I even got a flat bed trailer and drove 45 miles away to pick up a supra. Only to find out that it was an automatic. Thumbs down! But finally, after months of searching, a customer at my store offered to sell me his old wrecked supra. He had a 1985 P type, powered by a 5M-GE and delivered through a 5speed gear box. The next day, I drove out to inspect the car. He had told me that everything had just been replaced, fresh low miles motor from Japan, four brand new tires, and all new fluids and services. But only one week after everything was finished, it got T-boned by some blonde on the phone. He said it was totaled and could not be driven. I braced myself for the worst…. When I saw the car for the first time, I said to myself; the damage must be on the other side of the car, because this side looks great. But then after seeing the other side I said; maybe the damage was on the first side. The car looked way better than he described! I knew right then that this was the perfect car for my project. I’m going to take my time on this swap. There are lots of details to cover, and many steps that need to be remembered. I want this log to be a useful step by step tool for anyone else who is thinking about a swap similar to this. Please be patient with this work log, I have I feeling it will take me along time to finish this project. Here is my TE72: Here is the Supra parts car: ******* I started this project by removing the hood from my TE72. I figured it would be in the way, and this helps lots of light reach those hard to see areas. Next, I removed the battery, the washer bottle, and radiator overflow tank. coil and all the vacuum control stuff are the next to go. Then I drained the radiator. And removed the hoses: Then I removed the radiator attachment bolts. There is one bolt on either side of the radiator. After the bolts are out. The radiator pulls out with little/ no effort.
  8. I'm after a couple of nicely done-up KE70's for my wedding cars. Please get in touch if you're in Sydney/Central Coast/Newcastle region and would be interested. Josh - 0422 five nine two 507
  9. Hi there, What are the options that we have to upgrade a KE20/25 front suspension. 1. Which crossmembers can we use, KE30 or KE70 or KP61?? 2. What are the shortest LCAs that can be used on a KE20?? Are there any shorter than KE70?? I am busy designing a rack & pinion setup for my car. I have installed a starlet rack in but as it is wider therefore bumpsteer issues Temporary fix - Drop the car as much as possible - Less movement less bumpsteer. Currently drives excellent on flat roads with small bumps. . Out of all the crossmembers I have seen, the ke30 looks the easiest swap. My current track width is R LCA + L LCA + Inter LCA distance = 320mm + 320mm + 493mm = 1133mm If I use a KE30 crossmember with KE70 LCAs 300+300+520 = 1120mm (1.3 cm Narrower) OR If I use a KE30 crossmember with KE30 LCAs 310+310+520 = 1140mm (0.7 cm wider) Would any of these be a better start in rack and pinion conversion??
  10. So I have a KE70 1981 Toyota Corolla SR5 which is mainly stock. My springs are pretty soft seeing as they've been the same one for the last 34 years and 140,000 km. I was wondering if it would be a decent idea to go down to a pick and pull and just grab some decent ones off of a dead car or if I should bite the bullet and just buy coilovers. I just find that the car leans a lot to the outer on turning and would like a quick fix for that.
  11. Well, this is my ke70. It had already been converted to 2 door before I purchased it. I bought it as a rolling shell and was going to put a 4age in it and as a short term project to get her on the track quickly, but things have changed and it has turned into a much bigger project.
  12. 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)
  13. Hello, My first post. Just wanted to say hi and ask for some advice. And show of my new ride! Rust removal! I have a lot! Best way to fix please.

  14. I own a KP36 Pick up truck with a 2K engine and I was wandering if a 4K carburetor will fit. Thanks.
  15. Just wandering what tyres people have been using for drift, how long did they last?, how much power were you running?, psi?, did they delam? and were they ran backwards? (directional tyres) and of course the cost per tyre and how they performed! slippery or grippy, predictable at speeds etc. and also what front tyres do you run for a bit of grip! cheers! :dancetall: :dancetall: :dancetall:
  16. I've got a set of Ae86 struts that have been converted into coilovers but I'm not happy with the quality. Essentially I want to replace the cut and welded stock tube with a new not-welded tube with a nice new gland nut thread cut in the top (threads damaged currently). The strut tube doesn't appear to be welded to spindle casting, so I was wondering if anyone had tried removing it with a bit of heat. I'd like to know before I go ripping the suspension out of my car preferably. Thanks
  17. Hey guys , I was thinking of stretching the limits a bit and putting 15x10+0 on my ke. I know its going to need a fair bit of guard work but how many people have done this and is it just asking for trouble or does it work alright ? Thanks
  18. Hi team, I've read through a heap of forums regarding putting AE86 struts into '82 KE70 but I can't find anything definitive about the strut tops. I have a complete set of AE86 coilovers and power steering arms. I know I can't use AE86 strut tops because of castor issues, so can I just put my KE70 strut tops onto my AE86 coilovers or will that create some kind of other issues with the camber? If there happens to be a issue with the camber is there any adjustable camber tops with the correct bolt pattern and castor position that will fit the layout of '82 KE70? If I can just use my original KE70 tops that'll save bit of hassle. Cheers
  19. hey guys new member here. not realy used to forums but anyway. heres my new project. bought it from southport for $800. being that i lived in newcastle the distance was crap but it was incredibly cheap and had everything i was going to do to it already started and there so i was pretty lucky. left at about 4am on saturday morning and and arrived at soutport around 2pm to pick it up. then drove home yesterday. woke up fairly early this morning planning to get a whole lot of work done to it but the weather is pretty horrid. so i only realy got the interior stripped out. plans are for now just to get this engine in properly and running the get the tailshaft sorted. take it for a few runs with the open diff and stock suspension out at my grandparents property. then slowly start to transform it. its only gonna be a drift missile so nothing fancy. its only gotta go sideways and shred tires hahaha.
  20. Hey, I'm looking for some parts for ke70's and I'm' trying to find someone that has really good quality parts and can sell me everything on a ke70. Finding the parts I need is becomeing difficult and I would love to have some information on who has the best range of parts and where they are located. Thanks
  21. As title says, something along the line is meaning my battery isn't charging. It will drive with a jump start, but only reads around 9 on the multimeter. Brand new alternator Brand new battery Brand new terminals and wiring Brand new regulator. Yet its still doing it. This is on my 4k KE70 Panel van. Any help would be massively appreciated.
  22. Hey guys, I've got a flat front KE70 Panel Van and I'm looking to put quad lights on it. Ive heard mixed answers about wether you need to change your front panels to accommodate them. Apparently, I have the DX style front guards which people have said mean they won't fit without changing them. I apologise for my ignorance! Thanks guys, Leighton.
  23. Hey everyone, I've been looking for a 4k water outlet for close to 2 months online and i can't find one, i don't know if they just arent around or if I'm looking in the wrong places, anyone have any input? Thanks :)
  24. Hey guys I've just bought a pretty straight stock 82 ke70 xx. Apart from the general fixing up of the bog and rust throughout the car I was thinking of a few little mods to do on not the biggest budget. After all the body work is finished I'd probably be respraying it at home after getting a little more experienced in painting. I'd also be aiming for some wider wheels and was looking at 15x8+0, some opinions on that would be great. Lastly the stock 4k is a little bit on the slow side, some opinions on whether the 4k is actually worth the work or something like a 4age would be more appropriate. As far as I know there is an exemption available for P plates in queensland, if anyone has had any experience with that i'd love to hear. Thanks Guys.
  25. HEY GUYS This is my first build. So please take it easy on me if i make or say somthing like a complete noob. I have been researching for a very long time nearly a year. i had a ke30 at the sart and was going do a conversion in it brought a blue 55 as a daily to drive around why i did it then for some reason i sold them both (don't ask me why :( ) after have no corolla for a few weeks i could not handle it went out and brought a white manuel ke70 with a 4k had that for a fair while got real seriouse about the conversion and decide to sell it off and try find a ae71 with a 4 ac and t50 in it so i was already half way there sold the 70 been looking for a fair while now finally found one probaly payed to much for it.. but this is the only one i found as a manual and ive been looking for a while now. only down side its un rego :( PLAN OF ATTACK pick the car up this weekend have a good look over it make a list of stuff i need to get it where i bealive it could get over the pits. take it over get that wonderful list they always give you fix those few things up and then go back. 4age time :) once i get the car rego I'm gonna get a front wheel drive toyota seca pull the 4age wiring and ecu out of that. and hopfully with out to much hasle get it runny once running I'm gonna go get it al linced then in the future when i get the dollars I'm loooking at coil over bigger brakes and turbo :) but ill need diff upgrades and all that first so I'm dreaming a lil there..
