Hi All,

Looking at rebuilding an engine for my lj currently has the original 173 with small leaks everywhere.

What 202's fit i read there are short and long versions? Red, blue?

Also are all the bolt ons e.g. starter, radiator, alternator suitable?

From my reading any red will fit but will need to ise original sump. Just want to confirm. Cheers All.

Trans seems to sit too high, HQ coupe

Hi guys, I've bolted a 308 and t350 through salsbury from a HJ 4 door into my HQ coupe, using a new trans crossmember (ordered for coupe, 308, th350) from Rod Shop. I'm not sure if I've done something wrong, but the trans output is sitting very high, which leads to tailshaft contacting the tunnel.....
is there an obvious solution or a common fault I'm possibly making??

Resto help

Hi, I need some help. I have a HQ sedan that has recently been blasted and etch primed. After blasting I've come to realise just how bad the car is. I need a few panels that are not available from rare spares/kingswood etc. I know anything can be fabricated but it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper to do a cut and shut..

Celica gear box Fitted to a HG

Hi,
Have just brought a HG panel van with a celica steel case gearbox, but on close examination have found that the floor strengthening support has been cut away to fit it.
I have chased down a new support frame and gear box hump to weld in and replace the original.

As I would still like to use a Celica box and found that there a number of gear lever exit positions from the gear box.

Is there a Celia gear box with the gear lever far enough forward that I do not have to cut the frame again or is there a way of modifying the frame to accept mine or both.

Power steering HJ sedan

Hey Guys ,

I have fitted a power steering box to my HJ sedan.
Im pretty sure i took the box off a WB i wrecked years ago.
It has 4 mounting bolts where the old Manual box from the HJ had 3.
Do you think its necessary to drill the chassis to mount the 4th bolt or it will be ok just to run the original 3 ?
Years ago when i changed the one over in the 1 tonner i think it only had 3 .

Cheers Quent...

WB to HZ GTS Wiring Mods

I have removed the WB DeVille dash pad and all gauges & instruments from my HX 1 Tonner and have an HZ GTS one to install. The GTS gauge panel is all 'pre' wired with a loom plug on the end. However, the WB DeVille loom in the car has all separate wires running to each gauge.What is the best way to integrate the GTS dash panel in with the WB loom? Should I just pull out the wiring behind the GTS instrument panel and plug in the relevant DeVille wires, or is it not that simple? Lastly, the DeVille had a clock, but no Tacho. Is it just easier to wire in the tacho separately?

Hose from Air Cleaner HJ Red 202 Motor to front of Rocker Cover

Hello All,

Can anyone let me know the name and part number for the black rubber hose that goes from the side of the air cleaner's PCV Crankcase Air Breather Filter into the front hole of the rocker cover next to the oil filler cap. It is for a 202 motor probably from a HJ-HZ.

I circled the part on the attached photograph. Is it just the hose or are there any elbows or other fittings that need to be bought?

My engine did not come with these parts so I have nothing to take into the spare parts place to say "can I have one of these please?"
