Went and met EssDub (Graham) at Tenterfield en route to Brisvegas Nats, and we had an enjoyable drive back to my place, arriving back about 3:30pm with thunderclouds threatening.. no matter to Graham, straight away he dives into my engine bay, clears the way to the gearbox and pulls the selector mechanism out to see why it is so vague. Seems the reverse lockout bits weren't in the reverse lockout housing.
 
I had bought the monkeywrench racing conversion kit a couple months ago so that i could be surer of a fix when i found someone who knew how to fit it. Well, EssDub was the one. He replaced the existing setup with the monkeywrench parts straight away. No more vague gear selection. Old bits out and new bits in in about hour and a quarter.. just in time for 5:00pm sunset.
 
Great Job Graham!
The gears all select the way they should now, compared to the vague sloppiness before, it's like chalk and cheese.
 
If you're going to convert a 1ZZ six speed SMT the monkeywrench-racing kit (see above) has all the mechanical bits you need to manualize the box from scratch without dropping the gearbox out. There's an adapter for the SMT clutch fork so it can still be used. Gear selection will be accurate and precise. You'll still need a Brit ECU though, and a shifter and cables and the clutch pedal setup and either a manual wiring harness or a modified smt one .........
 
Many thanks for the help Graham.
 
(They should have sold the manual version here in the first place.)

Electronic Damper Adjustment hardware fitted.
One control unit in the frunk, and one adjuster motor, with the other adjuster motor on the outside of the frunk housing on the left.
The rear control unit is in the compartment behind the seats.
 
What I'm chasing here is that stiffness doesn't necessarily equate to best handling, or at least, not on all surfaces. Maybe on a very smooth racetrack.. Even with these struts, I'm thinking it's still a bit too taut, but I'm not any kind of suspension expert. Definitely better than the Teins at potholes or sudden changes in surface.. Thinking now of getting some 10% softer springs made. (??) Thinking rally type setup rather than track, and not giving the body/frame too much of a pounding on the poor roads in the area I live.

I've bought a second one, 11th month 2002 facelift for $6K. Had CEL lights, limp home mode, made it from Melbourne to Northern NSW in 22hours. Minor adventure. MAF was loose and one O2 sensor crook. Once that was fixed no dash warning lights and no limp home mode, goes hard but sounds rattly up top. Cleaned the pre-cats out properly.
 
Body kit, but no side skirts. One visor missing, but I've picked up a pair of imported ones. Not a word of English on them. The Air Con button is missing from dash, but I've found and bought a face to fix that with.
 

 
Precats were disintegrated/ing.
 

 
Compression as image.
 

 
Went to Ormeau today to check out a motor with five speed and harness out of a roll-over. Bit sad that #1 only has 90 lbs wet or dry. Gave $250 for it anyway and bought his engine hoist too.
 

 
Not finding any good 1ZZ-FED motors in easy reach. Tempted to put a 2ZZ in it.

So here we are, never having bothered to remove a wiring harness b4, trying to get one out of a Sportivo, to pillage for the wires and plugs we need to add to a 1ZZ harness for a 2ZZ to work...
S  
Found a rolled Sportivo '05 Corolla with 90,000 on the clock, but compression test shows 180 - 180 - 150 -150 dry.

Spare facelift Spyder registered. Getting all the bits together to insert 2ZZ in it.

Thought this would be the easy path to the exhaust and rear engine mount.. (No wheels on wreck. She's on her belly.)

The connectors you want from the harness are in the engine bay. Unplug the harness from ecu and pull the engine out with the harness attached. Take the connector off the oil pressure sensor and lift connector, you will have to lengthen the wires so don't worry about cutting them at what ever length is easy.

The Sportivo pedals? Essdub is getting me a full 1ZZ manual conversion kit plus early Celica ECU, so there'll be a few left over bits to sell... Right now the wiring harness is still attached to motor.

Yes that's right.
 
Are you going to use a swap harness or do the wiring yourself? Are you on the Gold Coast?

EssDub is doing the harness.
I'm in Northern New South Wales near Lismore.
 

Have the C64 box, want to put 4.312 Torsen in it and .725:1 sixth gear. Apparently manual conversion kit already has blockout, so there will be spares left...

Just the pedal covers chrome with black dot rubbers only come on Sportivos not just all black rubbers like stock. You cant use whole unit .

While waiting for bits, wondering if anyone has fitted a racing cap, and what was involved?
Present lid about 148mm across.
Biggest diameter I've found so far is 140mm.
