7K engine into a ke30

Recommended Posts

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.

Sounds good!  An easy car to drive & you'll never be short of torque. It will be interesting to see if a better diff is a 3.9 than 4.3.

Whats the reason for using the 4k distributor? The 7k one is electronic and a better unit
