    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.....................

    Rahman Bhai, another great post.

    You have to pay good sum to get this kind of One-of One learning experience about Car restoration or Car Engine Assembly, either thru an instruction at a college or by having your car repaired and learning the hard way by going thru various experiences with the mechanics. Thank you Rahman bhai, for providing such a valuable info. in a very logical sequence, which everyone can understand and benefit from.

    Eagerly looking forward to this very well maitained Corolla-82 engine overhaul. We're certain it will just as informative and beneficial as the spitfire restoration.

    @levin....you are right brother that these 4A-GE twin cam 16 valve engines are more powerful and may be more fun to drive but I have not seen many in "BILAL GUNJ" and then tranny as well...actually the engine we find second hand in Bilal gunj are not in very good condition and you have to open them and replace rings even if you find one with "STANDARD MAIN BEARINGS"...(crankshaft in original condition).One other problem is when you are swaping carb engine with EFI wiring ,sensors and ECU and other accessories are also required.Getting all these things in detail and in good condition is again a problem only solution is that you may find a complete front nose cut with every thing intact.In instrument panel...some more warning lights are required....some wiring modifications.....and after all these getting that neat effect of engine bay like the pics (SER_GTR) has posted is quite difficult.cosidering all these hassles I thought that I should stick to the original setup..The RX7 I have also does not have its original rotary engine.when I bought that car it was fitted with 929 luce engine but in bad shape.the seller also gave me the rotary in broken state but I did not try to rebuild it......instead of that I opened and overhauled the 929 luce engine with ALL NEW AND ORIGINAL PARTS INCLUDING CAMSHAFT AS WELL.So only block,head and crankshaft is the previous one....To sum up...I dont drive cars very fast so dont need much power.Basically I am a slow driver.I dont Remember that I drove more than 100/120 KM/H in last 15/20 years.....lol......

    @Datzburier...Salamz Zain Bhai.
    yesterday we started the newly overhauled engine for the first time and now it is idling with a water hose in the radiator and radiator lower tap opened a little to get the water replaced regularly....As I have relplaced every every thing in very minor details ,it was quite tight to be turned by the starter motor so we had to put another battery and jump leads to increase power and ultimately it fired and started......running quite smooth now.....I have taken all the pics at every step which I will post soon INSHALLAH..sorry for delay.....Regards Brother....

    We're waiting anxiously for the buildup pics!

    @Spitfire....!
    well its some one out from net.....!
    4AGE 16V are many there out in Shoba......!
    Your 3k or 4K gearbox can also be mated with these engines....! but better you use T-50 from Carina or Celica's...!
    Its surely not an easy job as swapping or rebuilding K series .....!
    but its one of its own kind machine after swapped...
    Regards and Best of Luck with Rest of job.....!

    @psyborg.....
    @vaqas1.....
    @brownrose78....
    I am really sorry for the delay.actually could not find time to post with all the details.I have used all the genuine parts(except gasket set).will tell the prices of each part and avilability as well ....got all the pics and will start posting in a couple of days INSHALLAH.....SORRY FOR DELAY.
    @SER_GTR....actually this corolla 82 is all original upto nuts and bolts.The perpose of keeping it is only its originality.I think swapping the engine with 4A-GE would be easier than overhauling this 4k ...lol...quality parts are hard to find.....thats why it took so long....any how....thanks dear for your advice....next time when this 4K will look forward towards an overhaul......will replace it with 4A-GE.......
