Hi Guys

I am working my way through sorting this little car
Im about to get the head sorted as it needs valve stem seals
Can anyone point me in the direction of a workshop manual for the 2E-TELU?
Im after the clearances for valves & torque settings for head bolts etc

Cheers
Mark

Well good & bad

Got the workshop manual 4 this from Japan
However, now the turbo has gone, have to replace with a new CT9
My hands are a bit big to get into all the little areas needed to pull this apart
Ive spent 2 days all up & am nearly at the stage of dropping the exhaust.
Hopefully that will allow the turbo to come away from the exhaust

Hi Jonesy,

If I'm not mistaken this car used to be owned by a guy from Bella Vista about 10 years ago. He was a mate of one of my neighbours when I lived in Castle Hill. It was a fairly quick car.

Cheers
Mark

Ok, I'll see what I can do Mark.

I haven't seen my old neighbour in years and not sure where he's living now and if he's still in contact with his mate.

Nath

You, Aussies, are LUCKY... you guys always get the "straight-from-the factory", JDM cars. While, us Americans get the boring, watered-down versions. lol

At least you guys, got the EP71 and later generations of Starlet... along with the nifty Starlet Glanza.

Our version of the Toyota Starlet, began and ended with the KP61. :(

No.

We didnt get any Starlet till the EP91 & no Glanza, just a basic model

Mine is a personal import & some of the others have been allowed in under various government schemes.

Dont worry, most of the stuff we get is watered down aswell
Weve missed out on heaps of cool Japanese cars

Oh... I thought you guys, did. Then, I think it was Malaysia and the Philippines, that got the various Starlets. In a way, I don't envy them on the KP61 aspect... I think they, only got the 4 door...while we got the cool 2 door. :)

Yeah, is it true, you guys only got the fixed nosed Levin version of the AE86 Corolla? Not really a fan of those... it's like putting the nose of a FWD AE82 sedan on an AE86 body. I'm glad, we got the cool flip-up light AE86... the Trueno. :wink:

You Aussies, are still lucky... at least you guys can legally buy ANY version of Nissan Skyline, 80's Soarers, Toyota Crestas/Chasers, 80's-newer Mazda Cosmos, 1st gen WRXs, and No. 1-7 Mitsubishi Evos.

Well it looks like the rings are gone on no. 4 slug
Compression is @ 120 on this cylinder

Im about to pull the engine down & do rings & get the head redone aswell
I think the valve stems are in need of doing aswell

Spent today getting an engine crane together so I can start pulling the engine & gearbox tomorrow

Fun times ahead

Nice starlet!

DOHC looks simple but you need to rebore the cills to 74mm and 4E or 5E pistons pressed on the 2E rods then.

I have built a 2EFE engine and know the facts by now :lol:

Well this is back together finally.
Same as it was before but Ive put the CT12 turbo back on & its had new rings & the head reconditioned.
Runs very well now with a heap more poke from about 2 to 5K rpm.
Im running it in fairly hard, however not to redline.
Nice little toy, however now I want to start on the body & repaint it.

It never ends really does it.
