Thats not going to happen - I've already thoroughly documented a 3rz motor swap in my "quasimodo" threads! Its not worth the time to document the wiring for a 3rz into a Sami. Let alone, I'm having problems finding the modivation to wire it. No way am I going to have the modivation to thoroughly document it.

Finally found the right hose (Napa #7240) to get my upper radiator hose and remote fill finished off.



Then I moved onto getting the rear internal cage tied down to the frame rails. First a plated the frame to spread the loads out.



Then a I made a concave plate to match the wheel well sheetmetal and factory botl hole location. Also its slighly larger than the foot of the OEM rollbar to prevent cracking of the body. Then weld a tube between them.



This gives me a spot to mount the remote reservior. While its not a "pretty" spot for the reservior - it will work just fine!

Are you going to keep the hot air intake or relocate the air tube to some place cooler? :dunno:

Great work on the cage, paying attention to details where it counts! :thumbs:

True, I'm sure it will be fine.

yeap.... plus this is one issue with any 2/3rz motor swap.... intake and exhaust on same side. I do plan to make a splash/rock guard for the filter eventually.

Hey Rick,

Would you mind going over the line lock?

-what you chose
-where you found adapters (if you used any)

I'm looking for the 1/8 NPT to 10mm x 1.00 adapters. Any ideas?

Sorry for bring up stuff long ago  :smack:

I got my line-lock from Jegs and it came with 1/8 npt x ??? sae fitting (3/16 tube which I think is a 5/16 thread?). So I just used that size of sae fitting and made my own brakelines. Nice and simple and no worry about hunting down hard to find metric conversion fittings. Thats what I did.

So I assume your talking about doing this on a Toyota - if so , just buy a line lock and buy the right size SAE brake line fitting and cut your current metric one off and reflare the end of your oem line with a sae fitting - make sense?

Yep, makes sense. I was just hoping to use my Toy stuff so that it would be somewhat removable at a later date.

What size is Toyota brake line? Sorry, I'm really kinda scared of brake hardware. You mess up and you could die  :yikes:

I think its like 5mm, but I just use 3/16 for brake lines.

If your not comfortable flaring brake lines - find someone that is.....

I do believe Rick has left the E-World. He has deleted everything he possibly could on PBB and is playing in the band.
