hmmm that is a good thought . ill bet they do . ...someone could call toyota publishing austalia and check .
Wow! No one thought of that? ... lol
i sure as hell didnt .
Australia, duh! Ok, now to find an Australian JZA70 TSRM. Anybody want to do the research and post the link to the Australian TSRM?
You guys are really making me laugh now. :biglaugh: I have been thinking about this for some time, but just never posted it. I could never figure out why nobody ever looked into it. lol I'm usually on Supraforums much more than here, but saw the topic and figured I'd chime in here. I'm doing my 1jz swap sometime over the next few months, and it would really help if someone could find it over there.

I just pm'd suprra__girl over in new zealand about this. She says that the jza70 did not come out in australia either, but the jzz20 and jzz30 have the same engine, just the body electricals would not apply. I've asked her to either pm me with more info or to add to this thread in this section.

We already have translated wiring diagrams... This is all we need.

I have a copy of the engine manual. Some stuff is translated but not all of it. I really want to get published to the internet. It has lots of good info and pictures that can be used as guides. It also has conversions for torque settings too.

This is very rare and I got very lucky to get hold of it. A club in the UK charge £50 ($100)for it and I want everybody to be able to see it to upset them as they have been anything but helpful on giving me info.

:icon_idea GUYS!!! who is seriously translating this? I my self have been searching and have located a company that does translate automobile repair and owner manuals! They are located in Aukland NZ. they have a complete Soarer 91-98 and Supra 91-99 JZA80 but no JZA70. I did send of an initial e-mail and got this response.

Hello Wayne

Yes all is possible. We are able to translate if there are around 150 to
200 people interested and happy to pay around US$ 80 to $100 each.

Regards

Michael McCarthy (Director)

now i know this is alot, but i thought it may be helpful and really if enough people want/need a manual this can be done. this would be for the entire manual granted alot wont be usful to us because of our US spec TSRM's

any input here?

Ninja edit... would i get in trouble for posting this on supraforums?

Up to $20K? Good luck getting that kind of financial support from the MKIII community.

What I think we really need is a way to collaborate and make it a community project.

Does anyone know of an OCR for Japanese text, or at least Katakana? Having the unicode of the text would allow for at least a start by using a computer translator, however poor the grammar may be.

A co-worker of mine knows some Japanese and his wife is from Japan. I can ask for their assistance, but they have an infant to care for so they wouldn't have much time to contribute. I'm thinking that I can't be the only one who knows any Japanese or someone who does.

I've been working on it. I got my hands on a Japanese OCR and I've been doing it in my spare time. It's going slow (lots of OCR errors to correct, formatting to change, etc). I'm about 10% or so done now. I hope to start putting pages up on 1JZ.com in the coming weeks. Is there any particular section anyone would like translated first?

Sorry, there's no wiring in the manual.

I do have all the stuff I compiled when wiring up my AEM though. Let me know what you're trying to do and I'll see if I can help out.
