Re: Rear Brakes

Why do you want to get rid of the shoes for handbrake? It is a much better system having the brakes and handbrake separate rather than having the handbrake on the same caliper IMO! :)

Re: Getting at the sump and crankcase while on the car?

Cheers Tosha! :) Just for future reference for you guys, I can confirm that this can be done and it is way quicker and easier than taking the engine out! As above really, I removed the nuts holding the engine mounts onto the cross member then jacked the engine/gearbox up as high as it would go with ...

Re: Getting at the sump and crankcase while on the car?

Cheers Tosha :) That was my thinking too. Just trying to think of the best place to attach onto to hold the engine? When I lifted it out before I only had a limited few eyes and we ended up bolting them to the engine and using rope because I wasn't confident that using the chain wouldn't catch the h...

Re: cant seem to list photos help

You nee to host the photos elsewhere by uploading to photobucket or Imgur or similar and then use the link on that page to paste intothe gap between the IMG coes that come up. That will then display the photo :)

Re: What have you done today?

Re: Altezza Rs200 AC Compressor Info

Cant say for sure (but you might be able to find out with some digging?) but I wonder if the IS200 LExus one will be the same? Wouldnt surprise me but not sure Im afraid.

Getting at the sump and crankcase while on the car?

As most of you will know, I had the engine out last year to have the crank reground and new bearing put in etc. Since the car has been back on the road, the sealant i used to reseal the full le...

Re: Ignition coils question

Yeah I saw a photo of these on the NZ forum the other week funnily enough!

I had a coil pack go on mine then but instead of paying over £120 on a Toyota one I bought a pattern part one from Auto Electrics Uk(through Ebay) for £39.99. fitted it in now time and all sorted with no issues so far :)

Re: Altezza RS200 flat spots and hesitations.

The gasket talked about will be the one for the cam cover and thats to stop oil getting down to the spark plugs/coils. you can get a new gasket or try sealing it with instant gasket becasue by all accounts even with a new gasket it isnt always fool proof for sealing pefectly.
