After spending a small fortune on braided teflon hose and Earls AnoTuff fittings for my fuel and turbo oil lines I will defiantly do the same for the oil relocator. ;)

Just needed to find a relocator kit that fits. :)

Yep, well that'll defiantly do the job (the universal kit). Just on a side note its not the most pretty kit out there... The finish of the casting is a little rough and the metal finish is raw, but you could clean it up and paint it no problems.

Well the other option is a Holley billet kit, but I don't want to sacrifice an arm or a leg. ;)

For what it costs you could probably draw up your own & have a machine shop turn it up for you!

I just wish my older bro's cnc mill was complete, i'd make myself a relocation kit. :D

Ahhhh.... I wish I had a decent workshop!

Starting at the front with the tidy up and moving backwards...

The heater never worked... and at some stage developed a leak which made a massive mess!
After ripping the lot apart I found the crack in an end tank of the heater that I'm hoping I can braze back together!

Cool update.

I too wish i had a decent workshop! My shed is only starting to come together, 5 years after moving in, and i dunno how much longer i'll be here before i move. :x I've got some shelving setup, a good heavy steel workbench & a small wooden workbench with a vice on it. I also managed to get a drill press that i usually can't get to to be able to use it :lol: :x

Keep up the good work dude! Even if you don't have a good workshop, with patience & hard work you will surprise yourself what you can achieve!

Cheers

Thanks heaps mate!

It was time to sort out the gear linkages...
Once again sorry for the crappy phone pics...

I’ve modified some longer links out of a Toyota in order to compensate for the gearbox and motor being set further back in the van.
At the cab end the links needed to be shortened and modified for the standard shifter.
Image

You can (just) see the closest link which has a short temp nut holding the rod end to the link, the plan is to replace this with a longer item and some lock tight.

At the box end I’ve had to do a similar operation...
Image

Two rod ends off the standard linkage will be used (as shown) which will be threaded and connected to the slightly too short Toyota links. The adjustability will allow me to dial in the lengths of the rod to get the shifting position just so.

That’s all for now.

Cheers,
Sam.

Hi Sam...
Been watching and admiring your progress.
Just thought I'd comment on the run-around...
That looks a very tidy unit!
Nice pick up.
Cheers

Cheers!

Still have exams *sigh*
Found some time to tinker though...

S13 pillow top camber plates.
They don't do anything for the height of the van, but they will let me dial in some negative camber.

Also... some pretty gauges!

Lastly, hatch combo switches are a direct plug and play replacement. Having swapped mine over now.

Cool update man. Interesting use of the s13 tops. Can't the carry use camber pins like a lot of other little suzuki's?

Cheers

does that mean youd be able to get s13 coilovers and theyd bolt straight in?

You could, but they'd be wayyy to long for a Carry.

S13 hubs connect to the coilover using two bolt holes that protrude from the front of the strut.

The carry knuckle (well mine anyway) has a clamp arrangement where the base of the strut slots into the knuckle itself. The coilovers I have, apart from being too long like Brayden said also have an issue with the external diameter of the strut being too great (assuming that you cut off the S13 hub mounting arrangement).

So nah they don't go straight in... I've only used the camber plate ontop the OE strut.
