Re: AE86 16V - Alternator Wiring Basics...

If you take a wire from an ignition switched source to the Charge Warning Light (whick incorporates a diode, so is polarity sensitive), and then from the CWL to the Charge Indicator Light output on the alternator, it will work. The regulator provides a path to ground when the ignition is switched ON...

Re: AE86 16V - Alternator Wiring Basics...

L= Does this go to light that has other side to switched voltage? Since you have a 4AGE you can ignore the charge relay, the wire marked 4AC and the ground connection. All you are left is a loop between the Ignition and charge fuses. The Charge fuse has no voltage until the engine is running. I hav...

Re: Hesitation at low rpms

The ECU water temp sensor behind the head is the green one. The brown one is the cold start injector time switch. The temp sensor is a thermistor, so basically pretty reliable. The test is to check the resistance of the sensor and compare with the graph in the service manual. Kind of awkward to get ...

Re: Hesitation at low rpms

Could be fuel or timing. Since I'm guessing that you don't have a WBO2 gauge, it's probably best to just check a few of the basics... - Pull the plugs and check for colour/condition. - Set the engine to TDC compression stroke on #1 cylinder by lining the crank pulley notch with the timing cover zero...

Re: Why do I need a Fuel Pressure Regulator ?

Hmm... something doesn't seem quite right... it's like you are running out of fuel for some reason. If your WBO2 goes full lean the engine the engine should no longer be running... the limit for lean combustion is around 18:1 and most widebands read to around 22:1 AFR.

Re: Why do I need a Fuel Pressure Regulator ?

- What happens if you put the bigport injectors back in ?
- What colour are the plugs ?
- Does the exhaust smell rich at idle ?
- When you pull the dipstick can you smell gas in the oil ?

Just checking :D

Re: Why do I need a Fuel Pressure Regulator ?

Thefuel requirements of an engine vary with both rpm and load. If you can imagine your car doing a steady 50 mph on a level road in 4th gear, the engine is doing a certain amount of work and requires a certain amount of fuel. When you reach an uphill grade you need to open the throttle more to maint...

Re: 4age engine brackets

Can't answer that question. But I do recall that when installing a converted FWD 16V engine into an AE86, there was an alignment issue. FWD crank pulleys have a slightly different offset to RWD crank pulleys, and to make everything line up, you have to use all FWD pulleys or all RWD pulleys. That is...

Pretty sure that AE86 GTS (I think the same as SR5) OEM brackets will be your best bet. They bolt up with one bolt in conflict with another bracket, but easily fixed. Then you can bolt on the OEM AE86 engine mounts and that just leaves the mount to chassis rail part to be fabbed. This pic shows the ...

Re: 4AGE automatic

That's the one. Trans is used behind the 4AC but will bolt up to a 4AGE as they are
both A-Series engines. You just need to figure out the flexplate by looking at the cars
mentioned above.

Re: 4AGE automatic

A42DL as found in the SR5/AE85 with the 4AC engine. This will bolt right up to the 4AGE and the only problem you will have is locating a suitable 8-bolt flexplate. The 4AC has a 6-bolt crank and the 4AGE has an 8-bolt, but I am lead to believe that the flexplate from some of the FWD 4AGE Corollas wi...
