Re: OST-050 - A VERY special build

Are those stock rods with press-fit 18mm wrist pins? I can't remember if those 10:1 pistons had 18mm or 20mm pins.

Re: Rear axle hub diameter

I threw this together in AutoCAD today. I wasn't sure of the diameter for the lug studs, which seems to be about 14.22mm. Edit: updated the image. The red represents what my modified hub would be like. Since the thickness of the hubs are about the same, and from what Jondee said earlier, I don't hav...

Re: Radio wiring help....

That sounds familiar about the blue wire on the stereo harness. It's been a while since I messed with my wagon's stereo, but I seem to recall using a wire off the stereo to tell an amp to turn on. About the reverse harness, I think for some of those the wires will be labeled with text like "rig...

Re: Radio wiring help....

Would something like this help? A "reverse" radio harness, I had to get one for one car I'm working on. Someone hacked up the radio harness and I didn't want to worry about what wire was what.

Re: Rear axle hub diameter

OK thanks! As aside, there's one thing I wish the AE95 had, the larger GTS rear wheel bearings. AE95 uses the thinner SR5 type bearings. Someone posted pics of an Audi A4 AWD, with 130mm diameter rear hubs. Although they looked thicker than 3/8", there's only about 3mm from the stud to the edge...

Re: Rear axle hub diameter

Thanks again Jon... I just measured my AE95 hubs and they are just about the same. I can't seem to find my metric calipers, but my SAE calipers measured just under 0.375". Edit: found my metrics, and measured about 10.2mm...? Measured the same spot. Maybe one or the other is out of spec. But co...

Rear axle hub diameter

I need to know what the rear axle hub diameter is for a GTS axle. OEM would be better, but aftermarket like Weir would be nice to know too if they're different.

That same plug is also used in the AE101 4A-FE. If you can find a pick & pull with some 93-97 Corollas, you should be able to grab one. Might be a little work to get at, being behind the alternator.

Re: Small port head, bt 20v block.

I'm guessing the low comp block has a square pan, while 20v pans have a notch... so you can't just reuse that square pan with the drain. I agree that I would run the drain. I have a 1997 4A-FE block that I was going to use for a 4A-GE build (need the notched oil pan area for my All-Trac transfer cas...

Relocating the oil pan drain bolt?

I can understand for the MR layout that the oil pan drain is probably in a more ideal location since you likely jack up the rear of an AW11 for an oil change. But for FWD setups, jacking up the front of the car means the oil pan drain plug is higher than the lowest part of the pan while the front en...

So it would be safe to plug off that fitting on the IM, and vent the cam cover fitting to a catch can? Or even 'just' using a small filter on the cam cover fitting?

I have gray connectors with 2 pins each. Not to derail a Buy-Sell-Trade topic into technical talk, but that distributor might be off an AE92.

Re: Why such a small sump?

Also of note is that the RWD oil pan is different than the FWD oil pans. It has grooves in the bottom of the lowest part of the pan, running front to rear (looking at the timing belt side of engine), whereas the FWD pan does not.
