Re: New Aftermarket manual steering rack

Oh yeah, and if you want to be a real cunt (which was what I was gonna do lol), you would just pick up a AW11 rack from AZ, put your old PS rack in (take off lines), and give em the box. Half the time they don't even bother looking, the other half the time they can't tell the difference haha.

Why do you need a new manual rack? It's a manual rack dude..thick metal teeth on metal teeth.. lol. I just bought a used AW11 rack, and bought brand new internals from Toyota. Everything is still available. Then I just painted/powder coated the housing. A new rack is stupid expensive. You don't even...

the problem with that is the cable clamp fits in a groove on the actual cable, and has to be the perfect size in order to both secure the cable in place and not create any slack.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

It's just sitting at my buddy's house. I have no idea what I'm gonna do. My buddy is a pretty gangsta mechanic, and I might trade him a BG familia for tearing down to internals and freeing up that bottom end.

All signs point to me selling/getting rid of it though.

So let's say we're in fairytale land. Say I buy a 20v. If I'm really unwilling to splice, are the 20v harness plugs pretty much plug and play?

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

I just really don't want to be kept here because of swapping in a 20v, and I've really no interest in anything besides a 4AGE. It's half the reason I bought the car lol.

If I've already got a donor RWD 4AG, shouldn't it be cake for me to swap in a FWD one?

I dunno man. I mean, we won't know until it's broken down. I don't think I mentioned it, but I have a DC2 GSR. It's really hard to convince myself how great the AE86 is, when it's better handling, better engine, better comfort, and 10x easier to find parts for. Plus, I'm supposed to move to WA here ...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So I was trying to drive the car to my buddy's shop to bleed the brakes and adjust the ebrake cable. On the way there (it's a 15 minute drive). I had almost no power. I barely made it up a FL hill. I figured it was the alt. and my pipe after the header was broken and hanging. I noticed the oil press...

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

Just to let you know, we didn't end up needing that SST.. I forget the part call out, but whatever that weird tool attachment was, we didn't need it. The fronts were rebuilt and powder coated.

I was following the Brazilian guy's write up on YT.

That's why I always go 15s. The modest increase of the wheel weight is nothing compared to the amazing selection that reveals itself to you when you bump up an inch from 14. I remember scouring through tirerack and the internet for decent 14s on my Mazda Familia. I just gave up and never bothered go...

Lol dude it drives like sh**. It's got something wrong air wise. Not sure if it's Exhaust or Intake. Brakes have too much air too drive around.

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

I pulled the hose after the check valve (going to the booster) off, after running the car for a bit and turning off.. and a good amount of pressure released from the hose, hissing and what not. Wouldn't that mean normal operation?

Thanks Dave, I actually found out that the check valve between the hoses was flipped the opposite way. I flipped it back, and now the power brake system seems to be working. However, when I step on the brake @ idle (haven't driven), the pedal will go down, but become "sticky" when it hits ...

Looks good dude, you're almost there :).

Just to let you know, it's been proven that silicone hoses seep coolant through small pores over time, so you'll want to keep an eye on the level more frequent than rubber hoses.

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

Ok, I guess I gave the shop too much credit when they did the brake bleed. Seems that nut was loose.

I'm gonna re-bleed and see how she goes, but pedal pumping doesn't seem to produce any kind of pooling so looks good!

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

I could see that. I'm a little weary of over-tightening hard-line nuts. But if it's anything else it'll more than likely be replaced I guess. When I installed the prop valve and new MC, almost all the lines were not kinked properly. I had references of factory routing and kinks so I know they were r...

Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

Hey guys, I'm not good with hydraulic lines but I have a weird leak symptom. It seems as though there is a very small but consistent leak on the upper connection for the hardline which goes into the (top of the) prop valve. It's odd though, that it's leaking (gradually pooling) where the nut and the...
