Wow, cool to see the cage. I'm toying with installing a sleek cage as a safety enhancement down the road. I'll have to save those pics as a reference point when I start planning that out.

True, though I left FB a loooong time ago.
I am not a fan of any social media platforms.

People find me if they need something one way or another.

Back on the cool / rare parts topic:
I am working on modernizing a somewhat rare part that I came across.
Will post up photos when I finish it.

Not on FB.
If you enjoy interacting with others about A70 Rare parts, you really need to join our A70 Rare Parts FB group.

You're amongst the dead in this thread. There were no posts between Feb 2016 and Jan 2019. This year, there have been 8 posts by 4 people. Half of the posts were from you. =(

I hate Crapbook but Rodel is right. Just create an account with a made up name and enjoy the page. That's what I did, I use Crapbook for nothing else.

I have a profile, but I'm mostly with you, @Piratetip . The facebook stuff is just so temporary. It's only good for a short while, then it's archived or lost 63 pages down the feed. It's a total shit platform for useful information storage and retrieval. 'Tis a shame that's where so much traffic has gone.

It is neat to share stuff in the short term, though. I should take the time to save all the pics and start cataloging some of those parts. Thanks for linking me to it, @rodel !

Wow this one has to be extremely rare IMO.

Master cylinder rebuild kit w/ ABS.
https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/l546978895


I tried finding one of these rebuild kits a while ago.
Ended up giving up and just buying an entirely new master cylinder for $180.

Too bad this kit is 3x the cost of just buying a new one.

My only concern would be making sure things work properly for whatever master cylinder you have. North American MA70's used 4 different masters (2 without ABS, 2 with ABS), and the Japanese-spec cars had additional variations and year differences.

Surprising/annoying that the overhaul kits are no longer available (with the exception of the 91-92 non-ABS version).

Wish this heritage program would hurry up. Still can't believe simple items such as stock flywheels are discontinued!

Yeah, the only item so far that seems to have returned in Japan is the RHD handbrake boots, but Medium Grey only.

Really?! Of all things to discontinue, brake seals? Really? Toyota, sometimes you make it so hard to love you...

What sit do you use to order Japan parts? I could use a medium gray e brake boot, OEM black shift knob (which I know are available in Japan) and a black shift boot.

The black OEM shift knob can also be found in the first gen SC300 with the manual transmission. Same as the mk3 one but the shift pattern is white and not chrome under the glass. I ordered one about 2 years ago.

33504-24070-C0 actually is the MK3 knob for a 1992 MA70. (It's also for the Z30 SC).

When I realized my Master was bad I wanted to try and rebuild but couldn't find the right kit.
I used the brake master from a 95 T100, works great and you barely have to move the hard lines to fit.

In the 60's the federal changes between 1967 and 1968 were huge. Girling made the new, dual brake master cylinders for the MGB. When a defect obliterated the supply of both cylinders and kits, they did not immediately try to build more, but wanted for the normal, 6 month away, production cycle. They didn't stop making new cars and it sure felt like longer than 6-months. Sucks.

If you are going to use another master cylinder, just be careful about which line is the front and which is the rear. They can vary, and do between years on the MK3.

Custom coil bracket and cover for IS300 coils. Rare because there are only 4 in existence, I got a few made as prototypes. This one is mounted on Nashmans motor. There are two brackets under the cover that hold the coils, then the cover is mounted on spacers. A cleaner solution than just jamming the coils in the plug valley and using a bolt to hold them down.

What type of coils are you using? I appreciate the effort, but think it looks a tad out of place (time-period wise) on the older-looking 7M.

IS300 coils, so 2JZ NA. It's basically all 1/8" aluminum, it's not heavy.

It's CNC cut, so the beauty of it is if I get bored of the look, I can just get another cover cut. I'm not a fan of the exposed coils and wires, and I have a FFIM, so this is a cleaner solution imho.

Yeah the 2JZ wasted spark coils work well. I am using them on my 4A-GZE as well.

I like the cover. Not sure exactly what I’d change but something to make it seem more 80’s. Haha.

Alternatively maybe make something that looks cool that covers everything including the valve covers or something. Who knows, I’m just rambling. Haha.
