    Rear Subframe Advice

    I would focus on welding in additional sheet metal at the points where cracking typically occurs. One typical area is where the front of the diff mounts to the subframe. The other common modification is adding a couple triangulated braces from that same spot out to the side. There are some old...

    Figgie's build: Project Rodknox

    Yeah looked that way. Guess I was wondering why? Why not just put the correct alternator on. My prediction was this car got built in a place normally accustomed to domestic vehicles. At this point it's not really suprising though for the amount of issues you have found.

    1988 N/A shell with 2JZ NA-T and 7m Electronics

    You just need to locate the root cause as to why the ECU is not grounding the injectors. That sounds like your issue to me. Start the troubleshooting tree: http://www.cygnusx1.net/supra/Library/TSRM/MK3/manual.aspx?S=FI&P=10 Pins #10, 20, 30 of the ECU should go to ground if it is actually...

    Working on a new clutch option for r154

    2 of the key components to reduce chatter on twin plate clutches. -Marcel Plates -Orgainic full faced clutches Especially without Marcel Plates, expect chatter and poor drive-ability on the street. Moving toward pucked clutches or non full faced clutch designs will also increase chatter.

    Why did you rule out WZ series washer? Its self centering, has an overmolded/vulcanized NBR or FKM inner elasomer sealing ring. Also those 2 part numbers have a burst pressure of 810 BAR!

    Yeah same here. Used to use Photobucket as well before they mucked it all up. Check NAPA, one with a lot of those universal parts selections. Or some other gasket equivalent should work. Coolant system only sees a Max of 14psi or so. Lowe's and HomeDepot don't have jack, I was just there...

    Cool/Rare parts thread?

    Yeah FB is not the place for me. Like I said, I made the choice to leave that platform a long time ago. Composite carbon fiber and FRP doors! Very cool, only 3kg weight. https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/p679996732
