Re: Red Death Revival: Beams

I realized I havent REALLY updated this in a while. I've been doing a lot. I broke my GTS rear end and picked up an MA46 supra unit to replace it, rebuilt with 4.3 gears, welded diff, weir solid pinion spacer and all that good stuff. Converted it for use on 86 by welding some washers on to the upper...

you should have equal turns to each side, so you are centering it correctly.

Re: Are rear spring insulators optional?

Re: 3sge beams clutch

the yen exchange rate is so good right now, you should do yourself a favor and get yourself a nice single plate clutch kit to get rid of the shitty dual mass flywheel as well. Kill two birds with one stone.

A few of my friends and I are using ORC 309 on our beams and its amazing.

this.

all depends on the buyer though. To me, those wheels are worth nothing because they've been rebarreled. In my eyes, the second you crack open a set of nice vintage wheels to put some modern style barrels on them, they are ruined.

Re: Rear one peice coils t3, qa1, Ksport, pbm

MCN sport uses a 1.9" spring in the rear to avoid needing a huge stupid top hat. You can replace springs with other brands like swift and eibach if you want, they make this size.. still baffled at the 10k rear rate, track car or not. Our cars are too light to need that, regardless of the setup....

sounds like ring and pinion failure, which almost exclusively happens as a result of crush sleeve failure, solid pinion spacer would fix that. afaik there is no such thing as a 7.8" toyota rear end. Cressida uses a 7.5 new ring and pinion with a solid spacer from weir with a proper setup and yo...

Re: Rear end in AE86 that can take 350hp.

I'm not familiar with what rear end is in the cressida, or which cressida you have a rear end from. but MA46 supra axle should hold up to that kind of power, especially if you get forged axles from weir. This requires the least amount of fab work. tacoma 8" rear end and ford 8.8 will be stronge...

The beams spacing is a bit different, but the adapters place the throttles very close to the stock 20v spacing so that all of the normal linkages/connections work properly.
