Finally the new head bolts came in and I was able to steal away to the garage to bolt on the head. Quite an exciting moment. After laying down a new Fel-pro gasket and torquing down the head and rocker assembly I was going to put the valve cover on and realized it was naked,just bare aluminum, not very attractive or clean looking. So I finished it in a wrinkle black finish like the old style Toyota covers. I think it gives it a nice vintage look, looks even better now I ground off the raised lettering and the two stripes to give it the silver accents.
Put on a new 22R sticker, fresh wrinkle black and the raised letters and stripes shaved to silver.

See I told you that would look kick ass. It looks amazing with the exposed letters and new sticker.

I might do that to the mister and save myself some money.

As nice as it turned out I was thinking the same thing that you should do it to the Mister.

OK, so update with some pics here.

Here is the tail all bolted up, polished and ready to go. The besels could still use a repaint but good enough for now.
Image


Here is the hood with some of the parts I blasted and primed over the weekend.
Image

Here is the tranny, a W5? someth'n five speed out of a 79 Celica...
Image

Here is one of the original seats
Image

Here are pics of one of the new front seat covers...pretty sweet and I STOLE 'em!
Image
Image

And so you see, my garage is in somewhat a state of chaos right now.

oh my gosh, I have spent 6 hours out in the drive way trying to clean that tranny. What a bastard...that thing was seriously dirty. See my previous post for the before picture. Here is the after picture. If I never have to do this again it will be too soon. I think most of the grease is on me now.

Image
there's still a little blue overspray on the bell that I didn't get because I was out of stripper, but I got it all clean and painted the center section...oh and I looked it up, this is a W50 5 speed...but most of you knew that already, the center section that is black is steel, and the tail and bell are aluminum. After the W50 they went to all aluminum cases.

Ooh, shiny!

What did you use to clean it? I have a dirty tranny (hee!) and found that Purple Power degreaser to be pretty good, and it doesn't give you a headache either.

I used SimpleGreen in full concentrate for most of it...The tough stuff like old road tar etc I used gasoline and a paint brush and wire brush. After I was all done a friend suggested he had used EasyOff oven cleaner makes short work of it...but can give you that headache you were talking about.

Wednesday is the day for dropping in the engine and tranny...pray for me. :)

Well, I found a guy who has a rear sump pan for me with oil tube but I can't get my hands on it for another week or two and I'm impatient so I decided to just remove the pan and drop it in anyway. Figured I'd just put the pan on later when I get it in my hands. Here's a pic! what a beautiful sight...I have been waiting years for this!

Image

As the engine was going in I noticed the engine mounts lined up before the shifter was under the shifter hole...Turns out I had bolted the engine mount brackets to the rear bosses, the celica uses the front bosses. So I had to relocate them forward. One problem the driver side mount is different if you are using the front bosses compared to the rear so since I didn't have that one I just bolted up the passesnger side and stuck a block of wood in there for the driver side until i make a JY run this week to get the right one.

Now the tranny is in there, drive shaft is hung etc, etc....just need to get that pan, and eng bracket and we're ready to start wiring and plumbing etc. :)

I love it man that 22r is lookin amazing. How much you pay for that intake mani? And where can you get the 20r/22r stickers? Cause I'm putting a 20r into my corrola and once I paint my valve cover I want a new sticker. I can wait to see the finish product.

that intake manifold is stock.

the project is taking a bit of a turn here. browse this post and see if you understand.

ok, here's the pics I have so far. excuse my cell phone pics please.

These first 3 pics are of the truck when I got to the farm as it was sitting. Notice how the front end is up on ramps and the truck is level...those are some ridiculous tires on the back.
Image
Image
Image

Here it is after getting it loaded and from Shiner to San Antonio where I was staying for the weekend. Now it's officially mine.
Image

Here it is now back at my house in Arlington. I'm sure the neighbors are stoked to have my little pile in fornt.
Image
Image

The Interior is seriously thrashed....
Image

No Tailgate...bummer.. :(
Image

And now the whole reason I went to all the trouble to get this to my house......
Image
Image

The more I look at this thing the cooler I think it is....better get rid of it quick if I want to stay married... Although maybe I could stash it somewhere until I can afford to spend some time on it.. :?

Can't wait to pull the motor!

I like where this is headed :D
Too bad about all the work you put into the 20/22 though, I'm assuming you'll stick that into the truck (Hilux?) though when you get the oppurtunity. :twisted:

the 2XR hybrid along with the carb, headers and LCE pro distributor is up for sale in the Toyota swap meets section here. the truck is sold to kingtoy and what he does for an engine is up to him. Now I just need to get this 18RG pulled and on the stand to go over it and get it ready for install into the Celica.

Got my garage cleaned up yesterday to facilitate proper working conditions. Afterward I had time before the sun went down to work on preparing the truck to donate it's heart. I removed the air cleaners and found some nice velocity stacks under the cleaners to my suprise. removed the radiator and drained all the fluids. Removed and labeled all the wiring too. Sprayed down the motor mount bolts with some penetrating oil so hopefully they will be easier to get off as well as the carbs and linkage and they are now moving freely. Now it's just a matter of unbolting the bell housing and motor mounts and it should come right out...should.... :)

yes, it was alot of work. thought i was going to pass out from the heat...but i figured, the sooner i could get that engine out the sooner i can get the truck to your house and stop hearing my wife complain about it's asthetic effect on the curb appeal of our house.

I ordered all my brake parts and they showed up the other day. I ordered my new washer bottle, overflow bottle , corner lenses and rear view mirror. Also Ordered my Sail panels. Foxau2 was kind enough to make me a deal on the originals he made a mold of. His fiberglass re-pro's are nice but if you can have originals...why not right?

Got out there saturday and did this....

First I plugged every little thing I thought migh be an entry point for sand. Covered the carbs, plugged vacuum lines etc And began blasting. I first blasted with a heavy cut 30/60 black diamond media wich left every thing debris free but very rough. I didn't do anything to the exhaust manifold since I'm ordering headers from Joel. Then went back and and bead blasted all the aluminum....timing cover, head, carb bodies etc. to give them a smooth satin finish. I left the valve cover rough though since I'm painting it with wrinkle black and I think it will help it stick better.

After all that, I used a ton of masking tape and taped off the timing cover, head, oil filter mount, etc, etc.... and began painting with high temp block paint..... I think the result is pretty good. Much better than before. Just need to pain the motor mounts and it's ready to go in!
