Hi all, I am currently installing a 7K carby engine in the ke30. Just wanted to share my thoughts on the progress so far as it might help others. Got a 7K engine from melbourne and we have rebuilt it completely including a new flywheel and HD clutch kit ( 4K flywheel and clutch and a spigot bearing rsb 508) Used the 4K sump to get the measurements to cut the 7K sump. Cut the sump completely just below where it mates to the block and then cut 20 mm off the sump all the way round. Rewelded sump. Used the 4K oil pump as 7K one is too long in the modified sump. Did a trial install in the engine bay and it fits perfectly using the original engine mounts from the 7K engine. The left hand lower mount for the gearbox from the 4K needs to be massaged a bit to fit the 7K block but the drivers side fits perfectly. Using the 7K starter motor and the 4K alternator, also the 4K fuel pump and distributor. Using the 7K inlet manifold as it is a better design than the 4K one and a set of headers.Also a 32/36 Weber rejetted for the 7K engine. That’s about it for the moment, currently stripping the body paint and getting the car ready for a full 2pack repaint. Will update with photos as we proceed.
Hello guys, The reason I am here is that my car is in the garage and i have stripped my steering box and drag link and the front x member is off. Yes I am installing a rack and pinion. I have found an expert welder who is ready to fabricate. I know and we all know that we don't have a donor rack the size we want as the width is too small. But I am going to build a center pull rack and pinion with a wider rack like as follows. but to do so I need some exact measurements within the next 2 to 3 days. Measurements A = Distance between LCA inner pivot points = 492.4mm (Credit parrot) B = Distance between tie rod inner pivot points = 410mm (Credit parrot) C = LCA length = 320mm (Credit parrot) D = Perpendicular distance between LCA inner pivot center and tie rod pivot -------- ?? E = Vertical difference in height between inner LCA pivot and inner tie rod pivot = 6mm (Inner tie rod pivot is higher) (Credit Rob KE25) Looking forward to input from all the experts here. Thanks Other info Front Track Width (Wheel Mounting Face to Wheel Mounting Face): 1270mm (Credit styler) Rear Track Width (Wheel Mounting Face to Wheel Mounting Face): 1295mm (Credit styler)
