ah yea.  Expensive but I've never heard anything bad about them either.

I like my Momo adaptor, but only fits Momo pattern wheels.
They don't cost as much as a Works, due to there being more of them in the states.
If you are planning to go quick release, most of the are dual pattern, so they would fit the Momo hub, and what ever wheel you have.

@bigtoepfer

send yard info if it’s local and i’ll check it out.

 

re: your hub question, look on yahoo auctions jp for hubs that fit toyotas w the same spline. i found 2 nardi/personal hubs that are SOLID fucking metal that way, and they were dirt cheap.

@ChriSOL I'll look in to those hubs thanks.

I thought the yard was near you but when I called them I realized they were in like North Carolina.  Didn't realize there was a Dallas there too.

I learned nine years ago that when you do a JZ swap you change the harmonic dampner. Mine separated on the 1JZ in the MX83 about three hours from home. And of course you can't just walk up to the autozone and grab one. Much less change it in the parking lot easily. Lessons learned only once.

So here the 2JZ was to soon reach its 25 birthday. Looked to have original dampner, pretty much original everything and "90,xxxkm" so now pretty much everything except the head gasket and oil pan gasket has been changed. Rebuilt the VVTi cam gear. It was definitely crusty and leaking. Glad we did that. Almost ready to go and soon to be back in the car.
Need to do some wiring on the trans because the idiots cut the harness just before the trans. Go figure. Using a 3F410 and turns out the mechanical speedo cable plugs right in. Which is fantastic. Probably the best news I've had since this whole thing started. Was hoping to be driving the car on Mardi Gras but don't think it's realistic.

Fluidampr is the way to go.. I had mine shoot out under the car and it was never seen again. I think I was pretty luck since I was bouncing off the limiter at the time.

 I'm balling on a budget.  Someday when I get a good job I'll get one.  HAHA.
I'm trying to save enough to get myself to toyotafest again this year.  And in a perfect world get suspension and wheels before then.

We need to plan something better than toyotafest. I think it's just a waste of time for the whole day, stopping by for an hour or two and then getting the fuck out of there is way better.

Ohh thats nice.  @ChriSOL I'll have to see if my wife will let me order it.  I really wanna put the wheel back in.

I haven't been doing a good job of updating.  Just realized I haven't been here since before we all got locked down.  I'm hoping since Texas is opened back up I'll be able to go over to Austin and get the car soon. Various things have slowed down the process of the swap.  But lots of awesome shit has happened too.  

The exhaust is almost done.  Fully divorced.  Resonators in the original stock cat location, and mufflers from and old 60s jag.  Guess I never shared photos of them here.  Everything is fully welded up to the axle now.  dual 1.75" with tiny 1.75" vbands just before the axle.  So cute.  I'll post up another photo in a bit.  Since it will only ever let me upload one at a time.

how are you ditching the linkage gas pedal for a cable? the world wonders...

My biggest thing was I wanted to keep a floor mounted pedal.  I don't know why but I did.  It's not my drift slut it's my daily and I just like floor mounted pedals because I'm old.

So using a combo of the originally linkage pedal sawed apart and welded to a pieces of a cable throttle pedal.  It's a frankensteins monster that should be interesting.  I'll try to add a photo here later.  It's only just come together a few days ago.

@ChriSOL I ordered a hub from Japan.  Looking forward to having my shit mounted correctly.

Also it runs now. So that's awesome.  Just a little left and then it should be driving as well.
