YaY



Just arrived after lunch, at the Amazon locker. All done & dusted



E18 is a dead-on fit for 12MM head bolt. Turned straight out with no give.. Shank rusty so I have smeared oil on the bolt before refitting.

Metrinch would probably be just as good.... but seem to cost the earth!

You folks from the 'rust belt' will get this.....

I had a plate welded over the 'classic' sill end corrosion - a Toyota staple, of yesteryear

Two salt soaked winters, since, had taken a toll on the gloss over paint/preserver....



Getting the plate buffed up and semi dressed, I refinished with a good quality grey (best match on the shelf!!)... It is from our local discounter chain - Lidl



It looks well rough but, having blasted lashings of void-wax into the sill & arch end, it has no signs of deteriorating

..... Let's give it another few years, then.

Was that gas welded? Or just someone that doesn't know how to weld very well for example if I did it.

MIG, but kind of 'quickkie job' >> not a full body shop pro.

No car of mine ever won a trailer queen award, m8

I have discovered a small rusthole in the rear exhaust pipe - where the muffler joins the long plain crossover pipe, it is a slip on joint.



I have bought some 'sticky putty tape' to wrap around but will likely add a ring of cola tin + worm clip

I have studied some 'carb modding' Utoobs, on my 4A-F 16V engine.


One is called the 'vac spring reverse', disabling the lock out on the opening of the second barrel unless a vacuum diaphragm allows it.....

Old petrol sniffers, here, will recall 28/36 Webers as 'progressive' twin chokes... My AISAN is a twinchoke too

Much dismantling is shown in the vids, to relocate the operating spring, to press the other way = thus unlock the second venturi opening across the throttle opening range.

I plan a 'mod' of my own, simply using a heavy wire to 'lock out' the op rod and free the secondary choke operation... No need to dismantle/disturb the carb in situ.

Will report [with piccies] soon.

..... first time up the ramps and total tyre width squeezed on

>> Ramps

>> Hole

>> Wrap

>> Tin

>> New cambox Gasket

..... The old gasket was crushed flat and brittle hard. I got new tophat seals and 4x Sparkplug tube seals >> the old ones were like polomints[hard!]

The hylomar held the new one in + a squidge on the face should get it all oiltight

As a 4A-F owner I'm always interested in finding 'strip down/modding' reports + pictures.

I'm unlikely to actually do any of the mods... But, hey, Knowledge is Power... so it is said.

This link [mebbies everyone has got it bookmarked already?? ]....

http://forum.alltracwagon.com/cgi-bi.../m-1301874383/

.... has given me more of an insight to 4A-F construction than anything else on the web

I hope it makes as good a read for you....

Passed the UK 'inspection', annual MOT - safety corrosion emissions.

My front tyres are feathering lightly, on the inside edge. This was noted in comments/advisory.

Had the tracking/geometry checked in my local shop and it is 100% Factory OK...
Must be just the larger tyre fitment 'trade off' for looks... Ah well, rotate and proceed!

Sorting out a selection of clamps and brackets to get the T4 box mounted - my factory 'suitcase sized' stuffer box has 3 bobbins!! The T4 weighs next to nothing [long empty box] so I will likely compromise on using just the pair at the rear

Yo... Sun OUT 2day !!

Chopped up my exhaust, now have a bend + clamp/slip joint.



It is straight through and a perforated/glass pack.



Started on an 'edge clamp' - grips the 'bean tin rim' flange edge of box - this will allow me to hook up onto the bobbins/hanger.



.... nothing holding me back now ....

Just bought 1metre length of 8mm threaded rod... This allows me to create the cross-rod (through the rubber bobbins) and secure it tight [see holes in my clamp bracket] so no movement 'down the road'.

Gahhh.... My shoulders ache!!



Straightforward enough & pleased with my 'can-clamp' for the rubber hangers.

Very subdued on idle and a lovely 'thrubb' on pickup.... Seems more peppy on the March to 7K

Very worthwhile + cheap 'chop job'... Does 4 Me
