    Default Overhauling My Corolla (My Mate Since'82)

    salamz brothers,

    I own a corolla 1982 which I bought brand new in the same year.Now this car is with me for last 25 years and I have driven it about 2.50.000 km without any problems.(never touched engine except tune ups)..still runs very good.But after this much kms now it started burning oil so I decided to overhaul the engine AT HOME.as I have almost every possible tool at home for my rides.

    I have taken the engine out and dismantled it and now going to reassamble...I can take pics and post STEP BY STEP procedure that how an engine is overhauled.....

    (1)PLZ SUGGEST ME THAT WILL THIS THREAD BE OF SOME INFORMATIVE VALUE????

    (2)SHOULD I START IT OR NOT????

    waiting for your suggestions brothers.....................

    salamz brothers...today I got my engine from the machine shop and also received some parts from Karachi like oil pump(genuine)timing chain adjuster(genuine)and piston rings etc as these things were not available from lahore.only replacements were there in the market but original/genuine parts of this car are hard to find(because it is 25 years old car)..any how will start reassemble tomorrow and will post pics INSHALLAH.

    anticipating...
    really want to watch and learn!...

    This is actually a wonderful step Spitfire sir!...I dont think anyone else would have done this at home, totally on their ownn and would have managed to show it here! We do have a few very good experts here, but they are hard to catch on PW nowadays!

    Plz start with the action!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    @spectra....brother,I took the pics of engine overhaul and will be posted very soon with details.KE70 corolla 82 is the last rear wheel drive car.I have kept every model of corolla but did not find any comparable to 82 corolla in respect of its durability and ride comfort.my corolla still have original front shocks and rear replaced once.universal joints of driveshaft replaced only twice in 2,50.000 KM. Never touched engine for any thing except tune up (done by me as I have all the necessary things like "dwell metre,timing gun "etc...so,,this car never gave me any kind of trouble in 25 years...........great machine.
