    Hmm interesting... every automatic toyota I worked on had one... I guess that's because everyone also had a manual option from the factory. But I think you have the perfect plan. Flywheel looks thick enough already but since you have so much space behind the ring gear, might as well use that. Cool project btw, making nice progress, I can't wait to see that thing finished!

    with the 3sgte flywheel and flex plate spacer i used it left the flywheel in a perfect spot for starter engagement, it looks like the holes are much closer on the VZ flywheel though

    Yeah $499. Then i went to Praxair for some argon mix and they were telling me i should have bought their Chinese 140 for $369 which is a direct copy of the Lincoln. But with cast gear instead of plastic apparently. It is such a direct copy that all Lincoln parts can be used on it. But meh, I know the Lincoln should be a proven piece and Cambodian Tire is the easiest place in the world to return things to if they go ****y.

    How are you going to tension the serpentine belt when you delete powersteering and AC? Something I'm stumped on right now?

    Tensioner is sill there. Shorter belt. PS and AC are solid mounted, non adjustable.

    Flywheel is fixed.

    ...Monocoque? Or just very geometric?

    In Toyota, we rust.

    I was referring to the work wheels that Warren was offering to Clay. My old wheels.

    What do the stickers say on these ones?

    Yeah it's a monocoque. All riveted aluminum.... interesting. Made by West racing in Japan.

    My 1UZ had been smacked in the front when its host car had been wrecked and that smashed the fan pulley and its supporting aluminum structure. Today i took the timing belt covers and the balancer to see if there was any debris inside. There was lots. Good news was finding a new water pump. Timing belt was fine. I didn't check if it had skipped though :/.

    Cleaned the W trans i bought fron Ahn and shortened the lengthened shifter back to stock length. Redid the shifter bushings. Blah blah.

    Excitement.

    May be a knob question, but relative to stock length, how much should upper 4 links be able to adjust (+, -) ?

    Will look good with paint and poly bushings.

    I made my upper arms non adjustable, but 12mm longer.
    That is on my 86, it is pretty low.
    As you lower the rear of an 86 or te72 with 4 link and panhard, the upper arms start to get really angled, the lowwer you go the more angle the upper arms have. this moves the top of the axle forward, and the nose of the diff down.
    Which leads to unequal angles on the ujoints and rumble from the axle.
