  4. ISO MK3 W58 Shifter Lever

    If anyone happens to have a blown w58 and wants to make a few dollars I am willing to pay $30 plus shipping for the shifter lever (Part 33521) in this diagram. It would be greatly appreciated, I cannot find this part anywhere or in any store because they are no longer being manufactured. Thanks!!! Contact: lcdunaway97@gmail.com
  5. Auto to auto swap?

    Thanks. I just wanted to make sure I do it right.
  6. What have you done to your car today ...

    I did replace the blown EFI fuse. Once that was done the car was cranking. The fuel relay I'm referring to is the one that I've installed to run 12v to the Walbro fuel pump that's fitted. I have to bypass this relay at the moment. I found an alternative guide online on how to wire it up. Whilst dodging showers I test fitted the exhaust system. It's, err, kinda obvious that it's naughty. Anyway, whilst eyeing up the space I've got to fabricate the fuel tank shield, I noticed that unfortunately it appears that the fuel tank has gained a new leak since it last ran. At this point I walked away from the car. I really CBA with this POS anymore.
  7. What have you done to your car today ...

    It would appear that the fuel pump is ok. I personally would try a new fuel pump relay. Electrics on Toyotas are usually very reliable. Also replace your blown EFI fuse. Is the EFI fuse a small cone shaped fuse? If it is you'll see a very small hole on the top. If you put a pin inside you can reset the fuse. What you are doing with the pin is physically pushing the connection together as if it has blown the fuse bends/ buckles inside. Good luck.
  8. What have you done to your car today ...

    It's alive... Bypassed the relay and held the pump open all the time, cranked her and she spluttered to life and breathed. This has taken hours to get to this point. The EFI fuse had blown, and obv I can't bypass the fuel relay permanently, but she lives. So, 12volt relay modification. Standard 4-pin relay, 30A fuse Battery Neg: 85 Old feed from car: 86 Battery Pos: 30 12v feed to pump: 87 if I manually jump 30:87 then it works, otherwise, I don't hear the pump come to life. The relay works fine. In very, very, very simple pictures and wax crayons, can someone please help me sort this mess out And please include simple steps to poking it with a volt-metre thingy (see, I really don't know what I'm doing).

  10. 7M-GTE

    Thanks, though that's not really what I was after. On the camshaft nose there are 3 holes drilled for the locating dowel with three corresponding holes in the camshaft sproket. The standard position for the dowels is 12 o'clock. On some older SOHC engines, particularly those with a chain drive, the dowel position allowed for adjustment with a worn chain or if the head had been skimmed or deck blocked ( the latter two being an issue as this would physically alter the distance between crank and cam shafts ). I was wondering if the 7M was adjustable in the same way and if anyone had the specs. The head on my engine has been skimmed ( I don't know by how much, previous owner did it ) but I have one of those thick Ajusa gaskets on. Would be nice to know if I can fine tune the cam timing by altering the dowel placement.
  11. 7M-GTE

    They're timing marks follow James's guide.
  12. 7M-GTE

    Can anyone tell me why there are 3 locations for the camshaft pin and therefore 3 different orientations for the camshaft sproket? There does not seem to be any explanation in the manual, I seem to remember reading somewhere that you could set it up for torque or BHP but I can't find the reference.
  13. Lack of power

    Good spot and good job 7m's are non interference!
  14. Lack of power

    Thanks for the reply Brent, have solved the problem. The timing belt had jumped, crank pulley mark was about 10 o'clock with cams lined up ! Why the thing started, let alone ran, is beyond me. Reset the timing. all is hunky dory.
  15. Lack of power

    How do your plugs look? Getting enough fuel? You could try disconnecting the cat and seeing if it makes any difference.
  16. Lack of power

    Got a question for you all - I was driving along quite happily the other day, put my foot down to accelerate out of a roundabout, nice and smooth, good pick up and response, then all of a sudden no power, turbo is boosting but at lower revs. The car will accelerate but at a remarkably pedestrian rate ( couldn't overtake a **** Kia Rio ! ). No unusual noises, good compression, starts easily, idles ok but will suddenly give a burp/bump. Temp is normalish ( slightly low). Have removed and physically inspected the turbo pipes and pressurised from intercooler feed to 3000 pipe, all good. ISC & bypass valves tested/inspected and functoning normally. No fault codes. 1st thought was "blown the turbo pipe". 2nd was intake or manifold leak. 3rd ws buggered ISC or byass open. Has anybody had expeience of this problem? could it be blocked exhaust //catalyst ?

    You have got abs, it's called your left foot
  19. What have you done to your car today ...

    " I suspect the petrol might be dodgy" Well thank god you survived the trial of the dodgy wiring - that could've gotten real ugly. onwards and upwards to more traditional cranking spluttering and petrol spewing!
  20. OUR SUPRAS

    Well a daresay if you dig through the past threads here ( and on mkiiisupra.net ) you'll find some answers. Theres a lot of variants Jdm stripped down 1JZs (called the "R" I think) fully loaded 7Mgte areotops ( I *think* these are jdm , not sure) My current car is a GA70 - used to be 2.0tt , (now 1jz) but has widebody. I don't know if all the narrows were 2.0 , but not all the 2.0 were narrow. I've never seen a narrow vs wide , side by side photo - I don't think they are that different. I think generally , even with other jap makes , cruise and ABs are not big deals in the domestic market. I can see why cruise isn't - its not a big place but ABS? who dosent want that?
  21. What have you done to your car today ...

    Posting this a few days after the event. So once again dodging showers I crawled under the Supra to find out where my petrol leak was coming from. I took the main line off the fuel filter and discovered that it didn't seem very tight, but, it also looked dodgy so I decided to remake it. This took a while to get everything nice and tight but once I had everything back on the car and gave her a spun, there didn't appear to be a leak. Car didn't start, but she coughed a few times and seemed to be spinning. I suspect the petrol might be dodgy, so I've got 10L of Shell Optimax in the garage (who doesn't!) that I'll be pouring in to the tank at some point.
  22. What have you done to your car today ...

    Right, dodging showers (why is it always raining ) I've redone all the earth points and added some proper junction boxes under the bonnet. I also bypassed what I suspect was the alarm (hoping it wasn't an immobiliser). Having replaced the new fuel relay with a fused relay I tried to start her again. Nothing. I can hear relays, but nothing. So I re-added the dodgy wiring for the alarm (it is an immobiliser as well, crap ), swapped the dead fob battery out, disconnected the fuel pump fuse and tried again... and she cranked. It's alive! I quickly refused the fuel pump and cranked again and she just cranked... ... ... ... and poured fuel from the rear of the car. So, good news, the fuel pump works. Good news, it flows a lot of fuel. Bad news, I've no idea where from. I can't tell, because everything is soaked and it's raining again. So, it's one or more of: The new fuel filter connectors <- The metal union looks dodgy as hell, and this is my prime suspect. The new rubber hose that connects the various hardline <- These have had the existing hard lines cut down (rusted through) so they have no flanges, so are double clipped and the hose overlaps the hardline by a considerable margin. The pump itself <- new Toyota seals and screws. Bugger. I don't think I'm be boating round Oulton Park next weekend.
  23. Check engine light on a jdm 1jzgte

    Hi everyone I’m new to the Supra community I just picked up my first Supra it’s a jdm import RDH 1jz with a digital dash. The issue I’m having is the check engine light will come on sometimes after driving for a few minutes but when I shut the car off the check engine light goes away upon restart. I’m trying to locate the obd1 but can’t find it. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
  24. OUR SUPRAS

    Man I thought those features were standard. Thing is though I didn't even know about the 2l narrowbody mk3 until about a year after I'd owned mine. I wonder if there's a site somewhere that describes features...
  25. OUR SUPRAS

    "only safety feature is ABS" You were Lucky! ( in best Monty Python voice ) You've got ABS *and* cruise? I've got neither I dont think the JDM market was big on these things , or mines just bottom of the range . I do got flippy mirrors and cooler looking back lights though,.
  26. What have you done to your car today ...

    That sounds like a fun day... Yesterday I put my finger through the inner arch. Looks like I'll need to be putting that welding class experience to work before the next MOT then. <insert many swear words here>
  27. all non turbos are higher compressions so an N/A is far more likely to be an interference engine than a turbo but is that a good enough reason for choice? the best engine is frankly the one that suits your pocket at the time. i would choose an engine on horsepower every time than worry about a timing belt failure. if you are going to put in the effort then put in the best engine you can get. i have always thought that if i had to get a new engine for some reason i would get a vvti as it is the newer and more powerful engine.

    they simply just look better than other cars!
