Re: We can get bearings to be able to fully rebuild SC12s and SC14s but it won't be cheap

As you would say: why bother rebuilding an antiquated roots blower and just fit a turbo.
Do these suffer bearing trouble? I don't know how many miles are on my SC12 but I've put 90K miles on it, if it gave trouble I would fit a turbo.

The fusible links on the battery terminal and held in by bolts, pop open the plastic side covers and use an 8mm socket on one side and a 10mm on the other.

You need to have the hole in the gasket so that the engine can breathe.

Re: T50 input shaft

That looks to be the 5th gear bearing spacer, it goes between the 5th gear and the end bearing on the main shaft and is located from turning by a ball bearing.
It's a while since I changed a set of bearings in a T50 so haven't had the input bearing off but I still have an old one in a box somewhere.

Yes it's at TDC, look at the timing marks(highlighted with Tipex) close to each other on the 2 pulleys also if the cam cover was fitted the upper timing mark would be inline with the cover mark.

Re: T50 gearbox help

Is it blocked? Chances are the baulk ring isn't gripping the taper on the gear any more due to wear.
If you split the box and compare the baulk ring grip with slight inward pressure applied on 3rd and then on a different good gear. Pop out the layshaft when you do this.

There's a few 4WD Corollas here in Ireland and usually use Celica GT4 running gear, which is an E series transmission.
The 2wd front subframe isn't compatible with a 4WD transmission so it would be easier to start with an OEM 4WD Corolla.

Re: 20V on MS2 idle issue

Idle was perfect with the Toyota ecu.
It doesn't stall every time, it's a somewhat random issue but usually happens downshifting from 3rd to 2nd rolling into a roundabout etc.

It has a random stalling issue where sometimes when I press the clutch the revs drop so fast the engine stalls, this is not helped by a slightly sticky C56 gearbox. Most of the time the revs will drop, slow down and settle to idle bu...
