Sv25 Project Daily

I figured id start a project thread of my own. I was waiting to do one for my st185 but this project is kinda first priority and in the way so ill start this one first.

Picked the car up for $600, included in the price was a new exedy clutch. Ive been looking for an awd, manual trans, 4-door, toyota, for quite sometime. This car fits the bill to a T. The only thing that i could ask for is flip up headlights.

This is what she looked like when i picked her up.

A frankenstein of parts i had around the shop. So far its got a 92 celica 5sfe block with oil cooler, 00 camry head, 00 camry oil pump, and 00 camry tubular exhaust manifold. The rest is 89 camry 3sfe off the old block. I did the water pump and t-belt while i was in there. New cam seal, valve cover gasket, and intake manifold gasket.

I also picked up 4 new strut inserts and strut mounts. To freshen up the old suspension. Ive got a set of eibach springs off a celica im going to try putting on when i do the suspension. Also have new rear rotors, pads, parking brake cables, and parking shoes.

I should have the motor backnin next weekend fingers crossed. All thats left now is to grind the block and install the trans and it can go in. More pictures when i have more progress.

Cool project! I like how the engine bay itself is clean, but every bracket attached to it is rusted to hell.

It lives! Needs parking brake shoes, cables, rear brakes, and has a return line leak by the tank.

Body work will wait till summer time when i can paint it after.

Pulled the tank, rust lots of rust. Fuel pump bracket was shot. So i drilled out the old lines and inserted NiCopp line in its place. Used gas tank repair putty to seal around the line where i stuck it threw.

Drove the car down the road for the first time today. Need to adjust the tps sensor and the ignition timing.

I found an interesting bit of info. While redoing the rear brakes i found my self in the need of some calipers. The ones on the car sized solid. I had new rotors, pads, parking shoes, and cables but no calipers. Got to thinking ive got some new calipers off a 90 celica gt-s i parted out last year. I figured what the hell ill see if they fit. Turns out they bolt right on, the pads are even the same. Check it out

Pics comparing the celica rotor to the camry

I ended up going with the celica calipers and camry rotors. The camry rotor sat centered in the celica's caliper bracket. So fyi 90-91 celica gt-s calipers and brackets bolt on.

Next on the agenda for this weekend is replace all 4 struts, strut mounts and hopefully the springs with the eibachs I've got from a celica. More pics soon hopefully with a drop.

Group photo of my collection
Image
Pictured is my 86 Corolla hatch sr5 with gts 4age swap, 92 Celica GT hard top, 86 MR2 2zzge 6 speed, 89 Camry Alltrac, and way in the back side ways on the rotisserie 93 Celica Alltrac. I have a pretty beat st165 but its not worth pictures and i could push it across the street on my own.
Image
After i cleaned the garage.
Image
The camry and my 02 Supercharged Tacoma. Its in the shop getting new knock sensors.
Image
Ive also got this sweet 88 Dually Pickup. Its going to replace the tacoma when i finish converting it to 4wd and 1uz swapping it. Too many projects not enough time!
