202 exhaust suggestions

Hi all,

I'm getting an exhaust done for my VB on thursday. I already have a set of pacemaker extractors and I told them what I wanted and they recommended a 2.5inch system with 1 muffler and a small resinator.

I want it to sound pretty throaty and with a nice note. I want it loud but not ridiculous.

Would this system do the trick? If not what would you recommend?

Cheers
James

Speedo cable problems

Hi all,

(Sorry if this posted twice, my computer dropped out so had to do it again)

Well I got the car running today and its running pretty healthy aswell :)

Couple of minor cosmetics but,
The speedo is reading slow, eg: it said 50 but the GPS said 67.
I got what i was told was a conversion speedo cable but obviously its not 100%. What do I have to do to fix this up?

Fix something, find another.

Hi all,

Got the car running today, the coil seemed to be the problem. BUT....there is always a but lol...Its getting EXTREMELY hot. I'm starting to wonder if the gauge is actually accurate with its reading of 100+ degrees C.

I fixed the oil pressure gauge reading by removing the teflon around the sender and i now have oil pressure :) Then replaced the coil and got it started. It still doesnt start easily. Seem to have to give it a full foot of gas to get it to start.

Anyway to the problem....The gauge rises ridiculously quick to 100+ and at first we thought it was wrong but after what appened today it seems as though it could be possible.

IT STARTS

Hi all,

Well I sorted the spark issue out and i now have ignition. It just doesnt want to idle. I havnt fiddled with any tuning of the carby yet as i thought its brand new and Holley say they have a base tune put in it from the factory.
Here is the link to 2 videos from today (had to put on youtube because couldnt figure out how to upload to here) to show you what its doing. To me it seems like its starving of fuel. Could anyone help me out here.

Also my oil pressure and water temp gauges arent working for some reason. (both are electric)
The oil pressure doesnt register at all, but the stock oiil light goes out so i think its the gauge

350 Holley on 202

Hi all

Just a quick one. I have read i need a V8 accelerator cable to put a 350 holley on my 202 as the 6 cyl one isnt long enough. Will a standard VB V8 accelerator cable do the job?
And is there A difference from a 4.2l to 5l one?

Cheers
James

No Spark

Hi all,

Got everything done today, got the starter sorted finally after about 4 hours. ended up just being a stuffed solenoid. so $150 later, a new starter fixed and I had a turning motor :)

But then once everything was setup and the time came there was no kick :(
I thought i had setup the dizzy 180 out so rotated it 180 degrees and still nothing.
It is definately getting fuel as I can see it going through the carby with the air filter off.
Then dad pulled one spark plug lead off and held it near the top of the spark plug and we found we had no spark. I'm not sure if i wired the dizzy properly so if anyone could shed some light on that it would be great.

Wiring dramas

Hi all,

I have a wiring problem i realy need to sort out ASAP. preferably tomorow.
Well i put new gauges in my car and everything seemed to be working fine. Now we have done a few things lately and I wwas working on it today and just testing things and all of a sudden everythings going crazy. lol
When you have the headlights on it trips the tacho needle and it flickers when you first turn the lights on. The oil pressure sender also moves up when the lights are on. If i put the blinker on the tacho flickers and if i have the lights on and the blinker at the same time, all the headlights and interior lights dim on and off in tune with the blinkers. And the stereo turns on but if you press a button it turns itself off and not back on.

Leaking master cylinder

Hi all,

I replaced the master cylinder in my VB a while back with one already setup for rear disc brakes. Since I replaced it there is a leak where the master cylinder joins to the brake booster with fluid running down the front of the booster. I pulled it out and refitted it incase it wasn't flush but still leaks.
There is also a leak coming from (sorry I don't know the name) the screw in connection between the front and rear outlets that has the plastic connection with the 2 wires. It seems to be running down the wires.

filler plug

Hi all,

I did an oil change on my new celica box today and I had read that you fill through the gearstick hole and remove a filler plug on the side when filling and you will know its full when it starts spilling out of it. Just wanted to know if this is the right bolt? There is one on each side.

I had read it takes just under 3lt of oil but mine took over 4l before it started spilling out of this hole so just want to check i have the right spot.

Cheers
James

Auto to Manual wiring questions?

Hi all,

First up sorry if my explanation makes no sense in this thread.

Well as many of you may know from my thousands of posts i'm in the proocess of putting a celica 5 speed behind my 202 in my VB.
Well the box is in and i thought while the console was out i'd recarpet it aswell which i'm half way through aswell and I have a few questions.

Q1) I am up to putting the new manual floor plate in and there are 2 wires going through it and out either side (i'm sure many of you know the wires i'm talking about) What I need to know is what these connect to?

Q2) What do I do with the wires that went to the auto console? Do I remove them? And what do I do about carpeting over them? I'm not running a centre console so cant push them under there. (I'll attach a photo of them)

What Clutch Cable for celica conversion?

Hi all,

I finally got all the gearbox and tailshaft in the car and the clutch cable I have seems to be to long.
Do I need a 6cyl or v8 cable for a celica 5 speed conversion to a 202 in a VB?

And does anyone know the lengths of both the cables, so I can double check which one I have because I was told it was a 6cyl one.

Cheers
James

Legal exhaust?

Hi all,

I was just wondering how long an exhaust has to be legally? I always thought it had to go past the diff but my mate told me it only has to go past the rearmost door. (which would explain why a lot of utes have short exhausts coming out the side)

Can anyone help me out with what is the actual legal requirement?

Cheers
James
