Now seriously, been talking with Flat Eric and Buttsy from Ireland, and they say Portugal and Ireland are similar when it gets to 86's. :tu:

Holy crap! I had no idea Ireland had so many Ae86s!! They all seem to very tastefully done as well, we have a lot of japanese cars here (NZ) but I dont think we could pull off such a large event like that, I guess NZ lacks a central location? just have to be content on looking at pics I guess :|

Great pics anyway!

Small update,
Replaced the carb, inlet and exhaust manifold and gaskets yesterday as my carb had a vacuum issue that I couldnt find/fix, It is running perfectly again now thank god,

Image

@Pewe_kodak,
thank you for the compliments,
As for manuals and such, the car is basically a ke70 corolla, all the mechanicals are the same, ae86 running gear will fit and can be very easy to do if you can find a cable clutch equipped t50 box from an ae85 single cam corolla or an aa6x carina or similar. Interior wise, ae86 seats will bolt directly in as will ae92 or aw11 seats.

A manual for the k series engine is what you need and www.ke70.com is great too, they have anything you could possibly need information wise,
As for parts.... keep youe eyes wide open! liteace vans, starlet, corollas, the odd forklift has gas powered 4k, haha Nice forklift,

Performance parts are hard to get, www.kentcams.com do great cams, weber do the best carbs really, and ebay often has twin carb inlet manifolds.

www.polleymotorsport.co.uk This guy George Polley is a legend of the K engine, he has extracted 150bhp from his 4ks built for national hotrods and other oval racers, very high revs and crazy driving, he can build them up too still for a price, well worth contacting, what he doesnt know.....

www.kp61.net is great too, some die hard trd spec fanatics on there who have reproduced some discontinued parts.
Hope all that helps,
Jack
Ps. Get up some pictures of your Charmant, would be very nice to see,

Engine in, Loom in, Clutch and brake pedal boxes cut up and ready to go in, I have some detail pics so people wont have to be guessing what has to be done anymore, took my own approach to the pedal assembly.

Image

Image


Right, So was looking at the pedal box in the charmant and the brake and clutch pedal box are attached to each other and attached to the steering column mount/support, its one big assembly like....
I knew that I'd have to put in a hydraulic clutch pedal assembly, master cylinder and all that, so I took out the clutch assembly from the cam and eyed it up, it was similar to the charmant assembly barring the facts that it had the hydraulic fittings and was a solitary piece, ie; not attached to the brake assembly or anything else. I compared both further and came to a conclusion. Ill use pictures for this part.

On the left of this picture is the ae86 clutch pedal and brake assemblies, and on the right, the pedal/steering column assembly from the a35 (charmant) You can see that they are almost identical except for mounting positions.

Image

So I had an idea.
I knew fitting the clutch pedal assembly would be awkward at best and that it would probably be easiest to use the brake pedal assembly from the ae86 too because they would go together easily, as opposed to trying to fit it around the normal a35 assembly.
I cut the brakes and clutch pedals assemblies off the steering column assembly like so,

Image

This meant I could now use the assemblies from the ae86. The picture below shows how the assemblies would now sit in the car, the pedals side by side and the steering column mount above.

Image

So that was sweet, I offered all the gear up to see how it looked......
Sickened. The pedals were all over the place, everything was pushed over on to the accelerator pedal.
So I thought, will the charmant pedals fit in the cam assemblies?? Of course they would!

Charmant pedal on top, cam below,

Image

The brake pedals were they same so I horsed it all in like that, and bam, I more or less have a hydraulic clutch setup in the car, barring drilling 1 medium hole and 2 small holes to fit the master cylinder in the bulkhead.
I also had to cut the cable holder off the charmant clutch pedal in order to fit it in the cam pedal box.

Image

Image

Here are all the bolts you need to remove to get the charmant pedal/column assembly out,

The first pic are the holes above the rack behind the clocks almost, (4 bolts)

Image

The second pic are the bolts on the firewall down behind the pedals, (4 bolts)

Image

The third pic is the bolt above the pedal that is above the rack before you take it off, (1 bolt)

Image

Hope this helps out some people here doing the same clutch conversion as myself, Ill get pics of the whole lot properly fitted asap.

Bonus picture; my exhaust is underground.
