Re: T3 camber plates

Oh wait, nevermind, I just put it together haha.

You can make the camber plates work, you just need to experiment with top hats. Have you tried calling T3?They are very helpful..

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Hmm.. so on yours you just have a circlip.. Interesting lol. More importantly, are those SS lines bare? It looks like it has no plastic/teflon sheath/covering.. Anyways, here are mine just for ****'s sakes lol: https://s6.postimg.org/o8dyffq69/20170831_154228.jpg The U clip doesn't go on all the way...

Re: WTB mk3 int shaft

I have one and it works great. It's just kind of a bitch to get the old one out (I had to use torch and penetrating fluid).

Also, when you install the new one, you want to use a liquid rubber compound. I used 3M yellow..

Re: T3 camber plates

Update on this. If anyone is thinking about using the camber plates with oem top hat, don't. It doesn't work. The top hat doesn't spin so the spring has to spin to turn which makes the steering feel awful. In my case I had the rubber bush that goes between the top hat and springs and it acted like ...

Re: WTB mk3 int shaft

Well, I don't know what happened but T3 (Techno Toy Tuning) usually sells them for 80.00 USD, but I can't find the product listing online..

Try sending them an e-mail. If not I'd hit up a junkyard or junked Supra!

Also, try the Mk3 Supra forums. Much easier.

Can't seem to get the second retaining clip to work.. The one on the strut body. Happen to have any pics? Video doesn't show much. Our lines should be the same.. Do you need a "c-clip" (or circlip as I call em') on the strut side? There is only one machined space/lip, where as the hard-lin...

Re: Ae86 f20c wiring

This is one of those things where you will definitely want to take your time and do it yourself. If you have someone else do a harness for such a unique and modern engine on such an old chassis, you will be guaranteed to have headaches. It's a very popular swap, but it is either lots of money or lot...

OH yeah, and the size that worked perfect for me (all the threads were taken up, without anything extra poking out), was M6, 1.0 pitch, and 16mm length I believe. At first I used 12mm, but they were too short and only bit about half of the threads. It kept bugging me so I went back and got some bigg...

Hmm, well something is still up, as the bolts only seat about 1/5th of the way in. Between the plate and the required lock and flat washer that's still too much.

Re: Clutch pedal out but car wont move

Don't worry about tolerances or clearance, just make sure that when you actuate the pedal that the fork is doing it's job. Basically just making sure it moves (which it sounds like it does). Yeah, that was only for me, but It took me forever to bleed the clutch system properly. It took me like 15-20...

Re: Clutch pedal out but car wont move

I say the first two responses are your best shot. You obviously have an issue in between your gear shift selection, and the input into the engine via the transmission. You also should get under the car (with someone else depressing the clutch) and verify that there is movement in the fork, engaging ...
