    Dumb newbie question

    Hi!

    I am completely clueless with old Toyota gear! I'm at Datsun man,truth be known,... but please don't hold THAT against me!!

    I find myself currently in need of some Toyota expertise!
    Can any of you identify the beast in the attached picture?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Yeap, one of the K series engines. Fairly early Corolla in our part of the world.

    I'm assuming it's in a Suzuki Sierra or something similar as there's a steering damper in that there picture!

    WOW... nice spot!!!

    It is in an old Suzuki Sierra farm ute. Just wanted to get a new dizzy cap (and leads)... oh and she needs a water pump too.

    Runs rich too... so there's something to fiddle with!!!

    But,..all in all, it's a really good old girl!!

    The dizzy's did change over the years, but basically there was the Bosch type and NipponDenso type.

    Your series of K engine should be with the normal engine number. Just look forward of the dizzy and it should be there. That will make the cap a bit easier to get right.

    Most nippondenso(look for a ND with numbers on your dizzy) are listed with a GD366 dizzy cap, earlier K were GD516.

    Most common Bosch type is a GB708. All of these numbers are Bosch part numbers which are common at most of your local parts shops.

    Again there's a couple of pumps but usually it was the change of series ie K - 3K -4K

    3K aftermarket water pump usually crosses to a QCP1013
    4K aftermarket water pump usually crosses to a QCP2135

    These are QH part numbers but parts shops can cross reference them.
