So.. rebuilt my 154 before it went in the car, new shift forks bearing retainer and i think that was it. 

Forgot about thrust washer. Was nice and quiet when first started/driven, keeps getting louder and louder and now sounds like i have a fucking dog box in the thing, and shifts like it too, 2nd and 3rd grind to shit when i shift hard.

So, did i fuck up by not putting the updated thrust washer in? To me it sounds like the input shaft bearing is gone on the thing, but i'm not too fluent in trans issue diag. 

 

Also my factory toyota release bearing has lasted about 10 hours of driving, half on track half street. 

Picking up a spare trans in a few weeks from some guy for 500$ so im gonna throw that in and take mine apart and look at shit, just wondering if any of you have had issues like these, and what your fixes were? 

 

Cheers fuckers.

Cressida's are for bandwagoners, real drifters drive pignose s13's with rb20's and xxr's.

Yeah my shit does the same thing, dude.  Except without the grinding because I replaced the synchros.  I replaced the thrust washer but forgot about one of the bearings, I believe it was the counter shaft bearing on the retainer plate.  First through third is incredibly loud, especially with a solid trans mount.  Solution: drive with the windows down.  Not opening it up again.  Fuck R154s.

Damn, this is almost sounding like a 7M thread, except for the leaking coolant. :blink:

Instead, there's leaking gear oil since the sealant I used was probably expired.  Maybe I'll do that sober next time.

Probably the reason so many 'rebuilds' turn out poorly........

(except 7Ms, as there is nothing one can do about them failing)

Noisy from trans when clutch engaged, then when i push on the pedal to disengage it sounds like im murdering thousands of baby squirrels because of my release bearing. 

Shits annoying as fuck, but im just gonna wait til i throw that other box in and maybe pull the fucker apart again.

 

Fucking wish i had money for a dogbox. i'd even street drive with it. Clutch in this thing is aggressive enough that i might as well be driving with one. forgot how much fun stop and go traffic was for the left leg.

seriously thinking about getting a fucking g force and a winters quick change or something for my racecar. have extra r154 to rebuild with MC parts for street duty, if that works then i will also rebuild the other one too.



My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

seriously, the line between having a shitty time hacking together last-minute fixes and being able to drive a season without a million bullshit repairs is not trying to purpose mass-produced commuter grade drivetrain as dedicated race parts. take from that what you will.

This thread is relevant to my interests.

Plan for this winter is:

Install OE Toyota engine and trans mounts.

Install Solstice/Sky AR5

Cross fingers



I've given up on the 154. They were shoddy to begin with and at this point are 20 years old. Hopefully the newer AR5 will be a bit better.

ilia: you might wanna look at the r155 too. it would probably be a good match with 3.90 final drive

You might want to decide if you would rather replace transmissions, or clutchs.........

A softer clutch will protect the trans.

 

Also, just buying an old R154 is your problem. If you had built it before throwing them in the car, you would be getting better life.

And also going through the trans every few events would help.

Do you really think any trans will take endless clutch kicks ?

Why do you think real race cars get their trans pulled after every single event, and problem parts replaced even if they look good ?

Out of curiosity, does anyone run a mk3 trans and have issues with it shitting out fluid?

Exploded my x90 trans (which lasted 3 years and never leaked a single drop) so i bought a mk3 trans to replace it for now. All new seals on it and it was fine on the dyno but as soon as I went drifting it was puking out mad fluid. 

Some guys say it's because there is no vent on the mk3 trans? Was gonna drill a hole in the shifter housing a run a hose to a catch can inside the car to see if that would help haha.
