Want to do the emblem just like this jdm gt-four but with the all-trac emblem it is gonna look nice :)

It's a real GT-Four from Australia. I think the guy still owns it. Although I cant remember his name he should be found at Toymods.

Got Klues rear subframe mounts and bushings and had a day off so i decided to pull my rear subframe and take the old 25 year old rubber ones out and put the nice shiny new ones in. Took about 8 hours by myself, I took it at a steady pace and got it done quicker and easier then I thought 8) . I could not POR 15 the subframe because the All-Trac is my daily. I PRESOAKED EVERYTHING IN WD-40 FOR 24 HOURS. I think this helped me out a bit.

Main Tools:
2 Floor jacks
2 Jack stands
Breaker bar
WD-40
Torch
Impact and sockets
Hammer
Grease

Did not know there was an "extra" bracket for the front subframe bolts/mounts
Image

Subframe is OUT
Image

Bushings are out. I burnt out the middle and then just hammered the outer ring out. Was rather easy after doing the first one.
Image

Old bushings out and broken
Image

New Bushings in :D
Image

Everything is back together and picture of the new rear diff mount.
Image

Any questions just let me know. I have not driven it around yet was getting a little late. I will let you guys know how she handles.

Thanks, it was on my to do list since I purchased the car in 2011. :lol: Now I can shift or downshift without hearing and feeling a huge clunk in the rear of my car.

I will let the pictures do the talking but did the clutch and some other things while the engine was out. Took about 15 hours total over a course of a few days ( had to work) Was not as bad as I thought. I did a lot of reading the past year to get ready for this haha.

3 days about 5 hours a day, total 15 hours. Could have gone faster but I wanted to do everything right so i took things at a steady pace.

Day 1 disconnect everything and drop the engine/trans out
Day 2 Disassemble the engine and trans and do the clutch and clean and gaskets
Day 3 Put the engine back and finalize everything

Honestly it took almost 2 years for me to finally do the job. The car was running just slipped under boost and after a while I really want to boost again.

Well sad day, found a major coolant leak coming from the timing belt side so i am guessing it is the water pump. On top of that, hearing a loud tick coming from the head by cyl. 1. :cry: Still haven't fixed the oil leak either which I am pretty sure is from the oil cooler and oil filter bracket now. Car is sitting and I am really contemplating a 3rd gen swap, what do you guys think?

Re: 1988 Alltrac st165 leaks galore, in need of st205 swap

Postby 88gt4DE » Sun Aug 04, 2013 2:50 pm

Didn't you just have motor out ? I'd investigate first ... water pump and front seals isn't a reason to give up quite yet ... Get that valve cover off and check out that tick. Run low on oil ?
