New Member Corolla Alltrac!

Postby 'RollaWood » Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:18 am

Hey guys! Wanted to intro myself and say hi

I am an Engineer at Boeing here in Everett, Wa. I purchased a 1989 Corolla Alltrac 5-spd with 384k Miles from craigslist last June to use as a daily while i built my 1995 Supra TT. I knew nothing of the corolla at the time besides that i had NEVER seen one before. Having worked at Toyota before being hired at Boeing i called my old parts manager to verify the rarity. All he did was yell at me to buy it as fast as i could, as he explained all about the 4A-FE having shared roots with the Ae86's that he adored. The Corolla was rare enough for me to drive to Portland, Oregon to pick it up that night.
It was beat to hell, but spunky. The previous owner sprayed the A, B and C pillars a Bright yellow (same color as the smileys :nono: :nono: ) and the center console and radio bezel white... (Really?!)

All in all it was worth it, for this sweet rarity.

Eventually, the corolla threw a rod after me beating the piss out of her for 4k miles. I knew it was coming soon so i prepared and ordered some blacktops to make sure i had a good running one.
(a little side note, The supra had a bent frame and was not working with me so i sold it.)
I wanted a Daily driver that turned heads to those who know what they are looking at. As well as a good performer whe i want to have fun. I'm sick of these new cars and their plastic crap, I'm here to show an old car done right outshines the new.

So now im bawls deep in a full restore of this beauty from tip to tip.
As of now i have:
15x6.5 Sparco NS-2 Wheels powder coated bronze
2002 Celica leather seats
JDM Front and rear bumpers
JDM 3-pc Wagon-Face
JDM Full wrap white/red tail lights
JDM 20v 4A-GE Blacktop
Custom Wood-panel'd doors
*in progress* Wood center console *full-length*
*in progress* 4 bucket seat conversion
*in progress* 20v Swap *wiring*



And to that note I say hello and thanks for Allowing me to be apart of this community!!!

Also a question regarding ST185 Trans and rear diff...

Does the trans share a bolt pattern with the 4A's? Is there an adapter plate? or has anyone done this that may share some insight into the length of the swap.
I believe my 20v will be pressing the trans on my 'rolla too hard as its already in need of a rebuild. I did note that the ST185 trans and mine do share similarities, only NOTEABLE difference i can see off the bat is the starter location.
Did the ST185 rear diff have LSD?

Is there any way you can take a nice pic of the Transmission and transfer case on that bad boy?

I assume he is going to swap in a 20v in place of the 4afe I was also going to ask if he wanted me to swap in a st185 engine/trans in that thing here in Cali I'm sure it's lighter than a Celica. I just opened a shop and this would be an awesome Job.
