    If you buy that liftback for the drivetrain, let me know. I have a liftback and enjoy spare body parts!

    Ive put 82? front axle stubs on my 73 balljoints.. its been years.. but I had to flip drivers side to pass side.. and I think it was entire spindles I swapped left to right, not just steering arms.. dont know if the same flipping would have to happen for you.. as I was going from drum fronts to disc fronts.. where you're goin disc to disc..

    No some one got to it before me, truth be told I don't have the heart to chop one up for parts. I miss my old gold dxl lift back, I was under the impression you fixed mine in my drive way for a guy name alex when I sold it to him?

    RZ wiring is very easy. They are simple, bullet-proof engines.... with a very wide powerband.

    So I have posted any update in a while so here we go

    The fist photo is a door handle I had only one of so I made it into a pattern and had it sand cast out of manganese bronze cuz its super strong and GOLD.

    I got the frame all painted and ready for some fresh parts. Now for any one who might be redoing a stout front end the upper ball joint form a 1977 Hiace not sold in Canada is the same as a stout. The lower ball joint is from a 1977 Hilux (you will have to mod the lower control arm as the bolt patter is a bit different and you'll have to drill out one hole to fit, if you need photo just ask). For the disc brake swap all I did is swap the spindle but I kept the arm that goes to the tie rod and re drill it for the larger bolts, 1/2 clearance I believe. The coils were also cut 3/4 of a coil to lower the front end. The front shock are just 1977 Hilux shock with the pin at the one end cut off and punch out.

    Now the last photo is my to me new Yoshi muffler that will be going through a 2.5 SS exhaust once the front end is done.

    A stock 3RZ performs better than a 5MGE. Better powerband, better reliability, better simplicity, much more performance parts availlable/aftermarket support, etc, etc. With the OBD-II knowledge of the 3RZ, to me it is a no brainer to go with the 3RZ. More power (and sooner), lighter, newer, easier to diagnose, more compact, less weight...

    I had 3 MK2 Supra with 5M engines... and I was not Lucky with any of them! Rod-knock and head gaskets were frequent. Killed 2-3 motors by year.

    It's like you're related to my brother somehow... you guys are the assassins guild for 5Ms.

    A small up date
    I wasn't able to find the one super long tie rod for my 66 Stout and the ****ty looking tie rod adjusters made from stamped steel were like $50. So instead I bought some 1 inch 4130 from the guys a Leach Machine ($10) and order the m17 by 1.5 pitch, left had and right hand taps online ($30) and made my own. I also had to make my own nuts which I made out of SS hex ($2 short form work) so I didn't have to paint them. I finished them off with a coat of silver paint. I kinda hope the will make the Stout handle a little better? But at least they are stronger the factory parts. If any one need those tap feel free to ask.

    Those tie rods are sweet- ill have to make some like that for the celica as those parts are hard to find.. For motor my vote goes to 2jzge on a carb that's my set up in my truck and it rocks - fun ripper good power to spin wheels in the rain at 60kph and the parts are reasonably inexpensive. If your interested in a carb set up i can show you how my set up work (and it works its my daily work truck) plus excellent fuel milage better than the 22r ever was
