Re: Re-installing trimatic to Blue 308?

I've just fitted new seals to my trimatic and am having a bit of trouble refitting her. I think the trouble lies with getting the torque converter mated properly with the transmission. I thought I had the lugs on the converter properly home as it seemed to sink right into the bellhousing, although they obviously weren't as when I refitted everything and turned the key, nothing would happen. Then I tried turning the engine by hand, and she still wouldn't budge. I then recalled how difficult it was to get the trans attachment bolts properly tightened (so the bellhousing mated with the back of the engine) and came to the above conclusion. I have now pulled her apart again and can't seem to fit the converter any closer than before. Any helpful hints? I am at my wits end and would love to hear what you guys think before bolting it all together again. Thanks.

HZ V8 Power Steering Hose....

Howdy All,

I have a mate who was driving his HZ ute into his shed the other day, and his shed, well, it's in accessable via a very small laneway. As he was turning into the shed BANG. His power steering hose went and had a very hard time getting the old girl in without power steering.....of course me and a few other lads had a good laugh and called him a wimp!

Anyway, he's tried to get a power steering hose and can't seem to find one, somebody told him they don't make them anymore? Is there anyone here who would have one lying around that their willing to sell, or know where to get one?

Starter Motor Installation

Can anyone give me some directions in installing the new starter on my hr w/202?
I've put it in and bolted it up flush with the bellhousing, wired it up, but still no good. Just sounds like it's struggling but wont turn the engine over.
My thoughts is that it's not lined up with the flywheel correctly? but don't know how to do this.
Any help appreciated

Thanks,
Andrew

help help help

can anyone help me. my 253 isnt working on the no 1 cylinder. i take off the lead and nothing changes. i have bought a new lead and sparkplug but no change. people are telling me the lobes on my camshaft are worn but when i take the rocker cover off there still seems to be plenty of movement from the push rods and springs. there seems to be spark coming from the lead as i sometimes get a shock. i gather that if the cylinder was working that i would notice a change when taking the lead off. i may be wrong with things i have said here but i have described it the best i can. the engine doesnt use water or oil. help

Clutch problem, EK - Supra

Hi all, I have a bit of a problem with the clutch in my EK, after a Supra conversion. It goes fine when cold, but after driving for a while it ceases to operate, ie it crunches when trying to get into gear.

I thought maybe it could be air in the system, getting hot and affecting something?

Any ideas, it is a Hydraulic clutch and the original fork and slave cyl.

Cheers
