Rubber Floor mats or Carpet?

Hi guys, I still have the original brown rubber floor mats in my wagon, and unfortunately they are deteriorating and looking unsightly. I am in two minds whether to replace with the rubber repro's from Obsolete Rubber (only in black), or put carpet in. The EH special is pretty much stock (check my shed) and I would like to keep it that way for resale value, however I know carpet is beneficial for letting the underfelt breath if wet or it sweats, plus it is more than half the price.

Rear Axle Oil Seal

Image: 

Just noticed a bit of an oil leak down the back of the RH rear brake backplate, obviously coming from the rear axle oil seal. Have checked the diff level and its topped up. How much of a job is replacing the oil seals on the back axle? Do I need any special tools? Any advice would be welcome. Cheers

Red Heads

Quick question. Is the cylinder head the same on all red motors? Looking at buying a reconditioned one off a guy - pretty sure it's a 202. I plan to use it for a 149 I am rebuilding. Is there anything special about a 149 head?

Hilux Diff to HQ PCD

Hello,

I'm putting a Hilux diff in EJ that I'm building and I'm wanting to run HQ PCD.

I'm thinking of getting the thicker Tonner axles shortened and re-splined to suit the Hilux diff which is 30 spline.

From my measurements the axles will need to be shorten to 694mm.

My first question is has anyone had experience shortening these axles. I believe they have had additional heat treatment. Could they be shorten to this length.

please help 202 fuel injection issues

I have a fuel injected 202 black motor I am trying to run on my start up stand.

The fuel goes through the pump up to the regulator then stops and does not continue to the fuel rail.

I have replaced the fuel pump and regulator but the fuel still stops once it gets there, do I need to bleed it or is it to do with the vacuum pipe on the end of the regulator stoping the fuel from getting through?

When I tip fuel down the throttle body the engine fires but that's bypassing the injectors and fuel rail.
