HQ HJ HX HZ Crossmembers

Are HQ cross-members the same as HJ, HX and HZ?

Are they the same for 6's and 8's and manuals and autos?

Reason I ask is my 253 / Supra W55 installation looks like it will fit the standard cross-member with just some elongation of the slots. Rather than screw with the neat custom one I removed with the 202 / Celica W50 combo I'd rather just try to get another one.

Thanks all.


(what, no signature?)

Supra short shift

Supra short shift

I put a short shifter in my w series supra box the gear changes are much smoother now and the shifter doesn't hit the console anymore very happy with it. Cube is the brand got it on evil bay if anyone is thinking of getting one.

banjo pinion seals

In a month or two,I'll be swapping different ratio banjo centers between different cars,and I know one of them has a leaky seal,so might as well renew both diffs seals while I'm at it.
Is it easier to do it out of car...or in car so it doesn't turn while undoing big nut behind uni??
I've read on hear that we need to mark it so the amount of turns we undo,is how many to do back up for preload.

So is it as easy as...( if replacing seal in-car)?????
Remove tailshaft-mark big nut to diff housing etc.-undo nut and count turns-remove old seal and replace with new( similar to Aussie box and lubricate inner part of seal)-big nut back on for same amount of turns-finished.
Is there no shims or other surprises for a seal replacement I should know about??

Interesting Ebay items     (?)This area is inventionally left blank.

preservation complete

preservation complete

Finally finished my Tonner . Not a complete restoration but more a preservation . I bought it a few years ago as a one owner and it was in a pretty good state of repair with no rust etc . It's the original (Persian Sand ) paintwork with a touch up and cut and polish etc , but repainted all the siver parts. Rebuilt the 202 and running gear , and also some repair to the interior. It's now in great shape and I'm wrapped !. It even still has it's original 4 Alco mudflaps , rubber floor covering etc. etc.. I Wanted to keep it factory rather than fitting a V8 and short wood tray like most you see . Must be one of the few remaining original Tonners .Many many hours went in ................ I love it ......

HZ left hand side mirror

I'm looking to put a left hand side mirror on my HZ but the drivers side one is more bulky and a bit different to the previous models. I can't seem to find a match for that side and just wondering if its a matter of putting the older style on that side or if there are matching mirrors left and right for the HZ model?? SPONSOR

Holley 202 please help

Hello to all. My name is Dru. I'm having trouble tuning a 350 holley list 7448 on my HZ 202. I bought carb and Cain manifold off a bloke who had it on a 179 in an EH. Carb had 55 jets, 85 power valve and 31 squirter nozzles. Carb appears in good condition and none of the air bleeds or fuel circuits appear to have been modified. My engine is a 202, 60 thou over larger valves standard ports and standard cam (I think). Compression is170 to 175 across the board. Manifold vacuum at idle and under no load is 17 in,hg across rev range. Float level is correct accelerator pump set correctly (30cc pump white pump cam set in hole 1). Mixture screws set at 1&1/3 out. I still have points ign new coil points plugs condenser cap rotor button and leads. Point gap 18 thou, plugs 40 thou.

308 startup

Off to the Panel Shop

Off to the Panel Shop

Well it starts tomorrow, the Ute is off to the panel shop!! It started out as a Yellow HZ, 253 with a 3 spd. It's now blue with a 5.7ltr injected engine, T700 and a 9 inch diff.

In the coming months she will come out Red with the same drive line and WB Caprice front end. Not sure on the wheels yet but that's some ways away.

Will post some pics as I go.

Must say it's been a slow process labelling everything, bagging every small part with a description. very happy to say that not much needs o be replaced? thought it would be so much worse!!!!!!!!!!


Recently I found a box of unused Champion RS9YX6 plugs,they had been my favourite plugs, and fitted them to the EFI VK 3.3 Engine in the HZ.

Shortly afterwards I was getting kickback hot starts under Caltex 95. When they occurred I removed the coil lead, cranked the engine and it was still kicking back, at least until the intake charge and fuel quenched the electrodes.

I then removed the Champions and went back to using Bosch HR7DCY+. All signs of kickback starts disappeared.

It's a great shame. The Champion RS9YX6 plugs were a great plug in the days of leaded petrol and the engine runs fine on Caltex 95.
