Yeah maybe.
Or a place that does A/C lines.
Or a heavy machine shop, like for tractor or earth movers.
They will have the tools to crimp that since they make those super high pressure hydraulic lines.

Will definitely look into that.

You would just need to figure out which way the line needs to be clocked. Since they don't rotate at all once finished.

Oh definitely. Will install both lines, mark lines where they both meet, then take to the shop to get it pressure fitted.

Also here is my plan of action for the power steering pressure line. Hopefully it can hold the pressure.
View attachment 84161
Yeah im with Piratetip on this, itll just blow out. Ive even blown out the DM braided power steering hose because they didnt use a barbed end before the crimp. (explanation from the guy that fixed it)
I ended up taking it to a place called Katy Hydraulics (years ago now) looks like its still around but much more official now (was just a guy in his garage before). But basically any hydraulics hose or even automotive AC line repair place should be able to help you out. https://katyhydraulics.com/ Link to the guy i used. Want to say it the same guy i used to make my braided clutch line.


Most/any decent hydraulic line shop should be able to help you out, just bring all the fittings/ends you got and figure out your length/angle of the fittings. Should be cheap, was about $15-20 to fix the DM line iirc most of the cost was the barbed fittings.

Sweet, thanks Steven. I will definitely swing out there within a week or so. We will see what they can do for me.

Look for a hydraulic hose shop in your area. That pump can put out 1000 psi, so hose clamps wont work.
Look up a local hydraulics shop, or some auto shops even might have a crimper for hoses.
I actually found a place bout 30 minutes from me that custom makes hydraulic hoses. I got both hoses installed and mocked up ready to make the line for them to follow. Will probably swing out there Friday or next week.

Also got a couple more thing done today. Installed the igniter, the fuel feed line, removed two year old fuel from the tank, ran the alt wiring. Also may have an issue with the differential fill bolt. Can't seem to break it free, I even heated it up with a blow torch and tried an impact gun but nothing. Lucky I smarted up and didnt even try to remove the drain bolt

Bro don't impact your plug! get a good ole fashioned breaker bar. You don't want to have to drill it out.

Tried a breaker bar but wasn't budging. I left it alone for today. Maybe after it cools down from me touching it, it may break free easier tomorrow.

I remember when I did mine the first time. I had to lean into the breaker bar with the benefit of a lift lol its only a plug the torque spec isnt 120ft/lbs lol Previous owner problems..

Yeah I may just give the breaker with a love kick to break it free. Maybe that kind of jolt will help. Wish i had a lift in my garage like I see some of them car youtubers with. Would make life tons easier.

Night and day difference. Once you've had the opportunity to use one its really hard to go back. Project looks great though!

Did little more today. At this point I'm just etching away at this project. Doing little by little each day. With the temp of 100's and super high humidity in houston kinda hard to stand under the blazing sun while doing the work.

Ok so found the solution to the fan/clutch clearance.

My old fan setup
20200628_144938.jpg

My brothers sc300 fan setup
20200710_154816.jpg

Here is both mine and my brothers clutch. Even though the sc clutch isn't as bulky, it still is the same length. Sc300 to the right and mine to the left.
20200710_155755.jpg

Here is the issue the fan blades. As you noticed the sc300 mounting point is closer to the front of the blade as the one my 1jz came with mounting point is more centered. This is a picture of the back of the fan blades, sits against the clutch. Dont have any part numbers so can't tell what these officially belongs to. Sc300 to the right and mine to the left. Will have to get a new fan blade. Promised my brother I'd put all his stuff back together.

Oh boy so been talking to someone and even this setup will have issues. Will have to think of plan B. Back to the drawing board. :rolleyes:

On the lighter note I installed the charcoal canister and routed some vacuum line to the charcoal canister and heater control valve. And also vacuum line to the boost sensor. Will be installing a check valve in the vac line running to the charcoal canister.

Got the alt wires finished up and battery fitted in with new battery tie down. I will probably be using a front mount push fan for the ac fan as the original ma70 setup will cause issues for the IC piping. Will also probably be going with a stock supra radiator until i can figure out the best solution for the mishimoto clearance issue.

I got the power steering reservoir mounted. Doesn't look 100% pretty but it will work. Also made the line on the power steering pressure line. Will take that to the hydraulic hose company hopefully this week.

OK so i took the PS pressure hose to two hydraulic hose places. Both said they can't do it. I guess ill have to suck it up and get the DM power steering hose.:rolleyes:.

I will be on the hunt for a jzx90 power steering pump though.

Went ahead and for extra precautions put on a vacuum check valve on the vac line going to the charcoal canister.

Call Parker hydrualics, looks like they might have some locations in Houston.
I'm surprised no one would make you a line, I had one made that could do 3000 psi.

It is not they won't make me a line, they said they can not combine the line im taking to them. No doubt if I ask them to make a line they most likely can.

Bit the bullet and just ordered the stock radiator, front mount ac/condenser fan, and the DM power steering line.

Already dropped in the oil filter and oil.

Got the differential fill plug broke free with a breaker bar and 3 lb hammer.

Got the headlights all lined up.

Got the ecu plugged in and mounted up.

Didn't get any pics today as I literally was sweating up a storm in this Houston 100° temp with what it seems like 100% humidity.

I'm literally there on getting this swap finished and started.

Got the sc300 fan blade in today
20200717_161001.jpg
It cleaned up really nicely and got it mounted to the clutch.
20200717_163757.jpg

Getting in IC piping pieces to run the IC piping. Got these 90° elbows. Waiting on a couple other pieces.
20200717_161005.jpg
20200717_161331.jpg
This bottom one will fit better once I get the stock radiator in.
20200717_161345.jpg

Also looped the PS vacuum valve hoses until i figure out the best way to run the PS vacuum valve. Its only temporary.

Here is the new stock radiator next to the mishimoto radiator.

As you can see because of the frame damage the radiator supports has shifted
20200720_172006.jpg

Also got the power steering reservoir hoses ran. Still waiting on the power steering pressure line from DM.
20200720_171853.jpg
20200720_171901.jpg

Also got a universal 7 inch fan to use for the ac condenser fan
20200720_161530.jpg
Going to mount it approximately here. No clearance issues with it here luckily.
20200720_161612.jpg

And got a couple IC pipings in and figured I need to order a couple other pieces. Filled the diff and tranny fluids.

Got the reducer for the TB to the IC piping
20200722_144749.jpg

Got a nice air filter
20200722_144742.jpg

Installed the ac condenser fan, just need to wire it up.
20200721_150441.jpg

Finally, I painted the spoiler a flat black as the white would not have gone with this orange color. It is only temporary until i have the car painted.

A couple IC piping ran. Need to order one more straight to fill the rest.
20200723_153949.jpg
20200723_153955.jpg
Need a little piece here
20200723_154536.jpg

The other side. You can kinda see where it meets at the bottom. Need a piece to go there.
20200723_154010.jpg
20200723_154221.jpg
20200723_154230.jpg

Got the radiator aligned as you can see. Had to notch the bottom rubber supports to slide the radiator over a tad. Also going to cap the tranny cooling ports on the radiator as I won't be using them.
20200723_154811.jpg
20200723_154754.jpg
20200723_154759.jpg

Still a clearance issue with the fan and the upper radiator hose. Ill probably put some washers between the clutch and fan to bring the fan a tad away from the upper hose.

Not much of an update going on. There was an issues with the remaining IC piping shipment. They are resending it now. Hopefully no more then a week. Filled up the power steering reservoir with dexron II atf. Just need to bleed the system. Still looking around for caps to cap off the tranny cooling ports on the radiator. Still need to wire up the ac condenser fan. Will fill the radiator with toyota pink soon. Im tempted to put coolant and gas and start it up before i get the IC piping on.

I did swap out spark plugs for ngk bkr7e's. The previous owner had put in Denson iridium vk20's in.
20200730_181404.jpg

I also put in spacers between the fan and clutch so the fan doesn't hit the upper radiator hose.
20200730_131134.jpg
Used these as spacers
20200730_131116.jpg

Here is current engine bay pic

Got the straight pipe in today
20200803_131821.jpg
Got the driver side finished
20200803_145430.jpg
20200803_145446.jpg
For the passenger side I need a 45 degree angle here. I already ordered the 45 degree coupler.
20200803_150707.jpg

I filled the radiator and overflow tank and found a leak at the gasket on the bottom of the overflow tank. Will need to order a new one of those.

Just shopped around a bit and can not find the rubber seal for the overflow tank. Can not even find a part number for it.

Trying a go at using black rtv to seal the overflow tank rubber grommet until i can find a new one. Hopefully it works for now. Got the 45 degree IC couple coming, should be here hopefully by the end of this week.

Also installed the spoiler today. Looks pretty nice.

Ok so got the 45 coupler and got the other side of the IC piping finished. There are more clamps then i desire. Will have a custom pipe made to reduce the amount of couplers and clamps later.
20200807_154633.jpg
20200807_154659.jpg
20200807_154711.jpg

The engine as it sits as of now
20200807_161014.jpg

Ok so i put fresh fuel in. Plugged in the battery and tried to start the supra a bit ago but no luck.

Here's what im getting. Starter is not spinning so im assuming power is not getting to the starter. Tried with the clutch pressed in and without the clutch pressed in. I know for sure the fuel pump is kicking on as soon as i turn the key to on position and keeps running. I checked to see if the ecu is getting power which it is. B+ gets power as soon as i turn the key to the on position. The ecu is getting ground.

At the check connector with key in the on position im getting power to the B+, fuel pump, and getting ground to the check connector. But there is no power at the ignition even with the key turned to start.

I got some diagnosing to do now. I have a feeling the wiring write up I followed was wrong.
