where to buy Ring and Pinion?

Hey guys, my pinion gear is tore up and missing teeth. I need a new one. Been thinking about changing the final drive ratio at the same time. I've tried calling and emailing Weir Performance but I haven't gotten a response yet. Anybody know any other place that I could buy a new R&P from? I don'...

Re: Ariel's Story - A tale of a Utah Corolla

I used expanding foam for all the deep cracks and body filler to fill in the little holes & imperfections.

Feb 17 - Removal Complete!

Another day off, another day spent with a chisel in hand! This was the part I was most worried about. How much rust would I find in the floor or firewall? Luckily, it looks like most of it is surface rust that can be taken out with a wire wheel. http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj294/spiffy1379/Ar...

I'm in the process of stripping out the sound deadening in my coupe and wanted some recommendations on how to remove the seam sealer, or if I should bother with it right now. I've heard that a wire wheel is just the best way to do it, is that true? Also, mostly unrelated, whats with these rectangula...

Re: injector help

I did some research last year and it seems that the 85 & 86 Camry and the 7MGE Cressida and Supra use a low impedance injector in the 185-195 cc/min range, so that might be helpful if you can find some in a junkyard. After some research, I got lucky at the junkyard and pulled two sets of injecto...

Re: Smallport help

My research suggests the green small port injectors are 250cc, based on the Nippon Denso part number and various online resources that claim to have flow tested or have original documentation to go from.

February 2014

All was not well with Ariel though. While she did run, she was gutless below 4000 rpm (more so than usual), didn’t idle correctly, and killed both the battery and the alternator. I put in a voltmeter to try to get an idea what was going on with the charging system. http://i275.photobucket.com/albums...
