wow, that is a ton of work! I thought I was crazy to have my dash out!


Funny how you left everything in there except for the ECU until the end lol. I had to get to mine once, but I was trying to leave in as much as possible Laughing

Haha ya, it was like a jigsaw puzzle, it wouldn't come out until i had everything else off first Wink Car is almost a shell now, just the engine block to come out, then il fit the beams, get it sitting right then out it comes again because i really have to scrub that engine bay, sick of looking at the dirt in there haha Very Happy

some nice progress since I was last in the thread man.seen on the first labelling pic...you labelled the throttle cable i think lol Very Happy

all joking aside, the wiring shouldn't be too bad, i have the ECU outs somewhere for the 16-pin ecu connector, then its only tracing of the black (i think 22-pin?) connector on the engine loom for the interior (not connected to ecu as such).they're the only awkward bits you need to splice Smile
should be a nice beast when its done though.

btw whats happening the old engine box loom and ecu?i may need the 1.3 running gear soon lol, so donations accepted haha Smile

Holy shit dude i just realized something!! i was going to use the full celica dash loom and start splicing stuff, never occured to me to just splice at the ecu plugs and put it on the corolla loom (D'oh) haha may have saved me a big fuck up there mate, nice one Wink

And yes i did label the accelerator cable!! i labeled EVERYTHING!! haha thought sure while im a t it, i may as well haha

Thanks mate Wink spent all day yesterday elbow deep in a celica engine bay at the scrap yard pulling all sorts of goodies out of it. i was like a child at christmas haha. got real lucky tho, a clean st202 just sitting there, as i was pulling out the alternator and starter, a shuddering thought crossed my mind, that the car i was taking apart might belong to a customer who parked up to look for parts haha oh well Wink was all good tho! anyways, i got myself an alternator, starter, gear selector clips, loads of bolts and nuts etc... a heat shield for the manifold, some gearbox bits, loads of little parts for the engine and also a front crash bar for the corolla (took me about 45 minutes to take it off a scrapped corolla cause the nuts were rusted to shit!! came home with loads of parts and a few cuts to prove my hard work haha. good day! Very Happy il post some pics later on!!

Heres some pics of what i pulled out of the st202 celica in the scrap yard on monday Wink
A heat shield for the manifold, Alternator, Starter and some bolts, nuts etc... also got a front crash bar from a corolla, the negative and ground cables from the celica gearbox, the gear selector clips to hold them in place, loads of little things that would otherwise wreck your head if forgotten Wink Also a dip stick and the dip stick tube!







Did small bit of work today. Drained the oil and the power steering fluid, then labeled some pipes and hoses and removed the power steering pump. i will fit it to the front of the beams engine, saves me from replumbing it to the rear of the engine where the beams ps pump sits. got the idea from dara's 3sgte corolla he got done in woodsport Wink









unbolted the fusebox and labeled a few more things



More tomorrow Wink

That is a ton of work! Interesting paint used on the heat shield and bracket, almost has a texture to it. I like! Whats the brand/name of the paint?

There is a Beams swapped 7th gen wagon around town here and the driver has troubles keeping traction... he finds it harder to drive in the wet no less.. haha. Good luck!

Haha had that problem before the conversion!! Got the paint in halfords, its high temperature paint, halfords own brand. its nice but a little too orange than red, still looking for a darker red, closer to the cars paint. Thanks for the comments mate.

Well it pissed rain again today so i stayed in and continued prep work on the engine.

There was some rust and a load of dirt and grease on the block where the fly wheel sits. i sanded it and put degreaser on it, then cleaned it up good as new.

Manky!!


Sanded and Degreaser




Cleaned the guard too


Anyone know what this is for? its a metal plate sitting on the block just behind the flywheel, it moves form side to side


I took off my power steering pump from the 1.3 4efe corolla engine the last day, so i mock fitted it to the front of the engine. the beams ps pump sits on the back of the beams but im going to use the 1.3 one (bigger pully and saves me from re-plumbing the hoses). I will make up a template of a metal plate that will bolt under the tensioner (where the AC pump would sit), then line up the ps pump with the other pullys, and bolt it to the metal plate (saw this work on a 3sgte conversion for a corolla) Heres how it will look!






After that, i made some adjustments to the corollas ECU cradle so the beams ECU will fit in it. Then i thought i may just put the ecu somewhere that i can access it easily when the dash goes back in. The ECU is an automatic which restricts the engine by about 10hp. All that is restricting it is a small resistor inside which can be soldered out, so after everything is up and running i will at some point be either changing the ECU or taking out the resistor.






Gave the inside of the gearbox a clean with degreaser, and the starter motor!!


Every Toyota bolt under the sun kindly donated by a good friend Wink (just had to stick that pic in there haha)


This is the second of the 2 manifolds i have. This one is cleaner but was stuck to the down pipe. brought it to Calbro exhaust center in Galway and got the bolts heated and removed. I gave it a light sanding and sprayed it black with high temp paint. Also sanded the pipe for the dipstick and sprayed it black too


Sanded


Looking nice Wink


Dipstick pipe


Back on the engine. Looking well now Wink




The camera makes the red look slightly orange, so heres a pic without the flash on


More tomorrow Wink

Well the weather has been shit for the last few days so not much has been done. still have to order a clutch kit but im still not sure what one will fit the beams (looking for a stage 2 by exedy. there on ebay but dont really specify for the beams). Was hoping to do it this week but looks like thats not gonna happen, it will be soon tho. ive not been putting deadlines on things, just doing it as i go and it seems to be working so far haha. i have to organize getting my mates engine crane to the house also. in the meantime im going to get the shafts sorted Wink
