Celica-202 dust cover

Hi all,

Does anybody know what clutch/dust cover i can use on my car to suit a Celica 5 speed to 202. It's got a Dellow bell housing, but I'm not using a Dellow dust cover as they are sh1t and melt. Does anybody know if any other cover fits? Or do I have to get it custom made?

Cheers
James

Horn legalities

Hi all,

Just a quick question, is it legal to have your horn setup off a button in the dash, rather than on the steering wheel?
Reason I ask is ive gone through probably 3 boss kits and none of them allow the horn to be setup on them properly.
Im currently running my stock steering wheel so i stay legal but my mate who has a VK has the same issue and his horn is just setup off a separate button next to the steering column.

Does anyone know if this is legal?

Cheers
James

Accelerator cable for holden 6 with 350 holley

Hi all,

Im currently running a v8 accelerator cable in my VB as thats what I was told i needed to run to put the 350 holley on it. But its come to my attention that when my foot is to the floor i only have probably 2/3 throttle at most.
I have attached 2 pictures, the first is with foot to the floor and the 2nd is when i push it all the way showing how much im losing.
There is plenty of play in my cable and it is fully adjusted.
Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it? Obviously i need a shorter cable, but do i need a modified one?

Continous tuning problems

Hi all,

Ive got an ongoing problem of it not idling.

We have played with the jet sizes, changed power valves, played with idle mixture screws and the idle screw and it just will not idle. It fluctuates like crazy without even touching anything.
We have checked for vaccuum leaks and cant find any anywhere which is what we thought had to be the problem but we keep looking and just cant find any.

Hi all,

Finally got out to the track for the first time which was awesome. Had a ball.
Ran a best of 16.60@85mph which isnt to bad for my first time out there and the car is still running pretty sh!t. Had heeps of fun anyway which is all that matters.

Got a new diff lined up and a few other tricks and hopefully be back out there next wednesday night to hopefully bring the number down a bit.

Cheers

Stereo troubles

Hi all

Having problems with the new stereo I bought yesterday
It's all brand new clarion gear I got from the shop I wired it all up and for some reason if u turn the volume up past 22 roughly depending on the song it turns off and ten back on and off etc.... And even if I leave it on lower it will do it aswell.
I have done plenty of stereos for mates before with no dramas but this is really pissing me off. I have checked every join and it's all fine taped over ever crimp connector to be sure but still shorts. Checked earth everything an still does it.

Celica gearbox oil level

Hi all,

Got a question for anyone that has experience with celica 5 speeds.

I want to check the oil in mine but it doesn't have a dipstick. Is there a way that I can check it without going through the procedure of filling it as using the hole in the side to tell me when it's full? Can I get an aftermarket dipstick or something?

Any ideas would be awesome.

Cheers
James

Long time no see

Hi all,

Havnt posted up lately, been pretty flatout at work and unfortunately the VB has been a bit neglected. Thought i'd just put up a quick update. Well i got a hold of a cheap set of springs and its been lowered a bit, i like the height at the front but the rear has to come down a fraction more, not much and it will be perfect. Anyway i've got my blueslip all done so now im just waiting on funds to get it on the road.

Im doing everything I can to get it on the road before this sunday coming intime for the Sydney Street Commodores Cruise For Charity. Its been a target for the last 12 months and ill be realy dissapointed if i dont make it so with a bit of luck i'll have it on the road this friday or saturday just in time :)

rocker cover breather?

Evening all, just having a few drama's with a mate's speedway car. It's a vb commodore with a blue 3.3 but with a heavily modified red 9 port head. We bought the car a couple of months ago blowing no smoke where it has sat. We have now fitted the motor into the new race car and apon firing it up it's blowing a bucket load of light blue smoke out of the exhaust. Tends to be more once it's warm. The rocker cover has a breather at the front but the rear outlet has been taped closed ( how we got it ). Do we need to put a breather on the rear of the rocker cover as well?
