    I guess I should pull my diff, and get to work rebuilding the lsd, plus all this cool stuff.

    What ratio?

    Anywho, this too is my favourite car of all time here.

    EDIT:

    I see it says 4.778

    Any Prisonbreak watchers out there notice the Mango in the last episode? Looked exactly like this one except with white louvers

    Nice car btw. I always pass one of these sitting in somebody's driveway when i'm driving home, I like the odd body style of them

    I like all the body bracing you've done on this car, it's given me lots of good ideas. This thing must be ooobber stiff eh?

    Yes Rob, it is stifff.
    It doesnt do the creak n flex like the 86 when I pull into my garage. There is a slightly more than acceptable slope into my garage and you need to take it at an angle in such low cars, so you get to torsionally load up the extra stiff suspension on the cars as I pull in. it sucks.
    but its better than having a crappy little single car garage.
    I built the cage to be as stiff as posible, tried to triangulate as many mounting pionts as posible. As well as having way more bars than the minimum. also atached to the body in many places, not just the floor. A pillars, b Pillars, windshiled opening, rear suspension mounting points. blah blah.
    I like it stiffen ya!

    Since it has been so bleedin' cold and the "garage of hair" is unlivable, I got to work on my third member in the living room!
    Dont try this at home, the ladies are not fans of gear oil aroma thearapy!!


    I used an old table that was kicking around in teh garage, so as to not stain the kitchen table.


    It came apart realy easy, all original, lots of miles, severe abuse by mango


    It took awhile! but its all done, has a nice pattern, all new bearings, new seal.
    new pinion nut. Solid spacer from DCP, ofcourse new 4.778 R&P from DCP as well.

    Excitement! Its supposed to be above 0 tomorrow too! Maybe I will put my tirdmember and axels backinto der home in dine axle housing ya?!


    surprise photo attack durring assembly!

    I am a realy realy strong! I just push it apart with my fingers.

    I got a 5 ton bearing puller kit from Princes Auto.
    I hamered the original pinion gear out of the housing cause I didnt need it anymore.
    Took the original inner bearing off the pinion by use the bearing puller, heat, and gentle persuasion witha blunt object, I did this in the garage in -29* .
    once disasembled, put the original bearings in the bench vise and used a dremel to open up the inner diameter so they would go on/off the new pinion easyer.
    Get everything all set up and looking good using the easyer to fit older bearings.
    remove old bearings put on new inner pinion bearing bla bla,
    I dont like typing.
    Basically set it up using the old bearings, then start to put it together using the new stuff. But only go one step at a time, and recheck as you are going.
    Like, I set the pinion depth and put on the new bearing, then reassembled the pinion in the housing, instllaed the diff/crown wheel, set backlash, check pattern, make sure its the same as it was with the old bearing. Then move on to setting up the solid spacer.

    In the end it worked perfect. I am happy.

    Did you cut the stock knuckle for clearance or did you machine the taper on your new knuckle to fit the balljoint ?

    I cut the stock ae86 knuckle off, I didnt like the ackerman.
    The piece you see there is a 2" x 5/8" flat bar with a big hole drilled to clear the balljoint nut, and a 1/2" hole on the end to fit the heim for a tierod end. It is sandwiched between most of the ae86 steering arm/balljoint piece and the 85 celica gts strut housing.
    kinda like a rca is sandwiched, the bolts go thru it, I tacked it on to the strut as well, for safe keeping.

    Also, I am running celica struts and 86 arms, they dont mate together very well.
    The 86 has a shallow arm and a large recess in the bottom of the strut housing.
    Where the Celica has a deep arm and relativly small recess in the bottom of the strut housing.
    So The new arm acts as a spacer as well to give the ball joint nut some space, otherwise the arm and strut dont bolt together, actually the arm and strut dont bolt together anyway, the bolt spacing is different. I had mine bored out and had roll pins and small rca before I did the custom arms.
    My car is stupid, I change so much stuff I cant even remember sometimes what is what.

    WEELLL! thanks to Piggity/Booze/Paul who called me up and told me there was a 3t at Pick'n'pull I now finally have a 3t...

    Took under 2 hours by myself to pull it, I impressed myself! Loaded in the trunk of my amazing winter sr5 and was home by 1pm nice sundays work.



    I left the head, it had an auto, so I was not tempted by the trany, man 3t has a lot of gay emmisions crap!
    I also just finnishe putting some hks cams in my redtop that is destined for the 86, and automotively full day, now I wait for more parts. Strip down the 3t block, get it bored out, and... and...

    Do you not have enough room to put in celica gts arms in the car? They are longer than the gts corolla's.

    Nice work on the 3tc! I didn't know if you had already got one or not.
