Longer nights, brighter days, warmer weather, and jack black bio bird movie most importantly, the season of my favorite color palette!
The clutch mechanism can be either converted to cable type using a Gemini cable and a modified clutch pedal to provide an extension with a hook on the top for the cable.
The engines themselves are available occasionally, from the usual Japanese engine importers.
Heart Wired Designs chevron and heart ring brooklyn Designs eve ring c/o, photos.A) Gemini sohc 1600 engine and gearbox (also 1800/2000 Rodeo).This white, tan, soft blue, and denim combo will be my go-to these next couple of months and most likely through summer.This car has a genuine dohc 4 speed with remote shifter.Findin gone of these engines, though, will be difficult.C) Piazza 2000 Turbo, this conversion is not for the faint hearted, either in the fitting or possibly the driving.Possibly expensive if you need to get someone to do it for you.If you have any questions, feel free to contact.The distributor, by the way, is solid state and needs a special electronic box to drive the coil.Back to the oil filter block.
My previous 1966 Bellett sedan fitted with Isuzu 1800cc dohc engine and twin SU carburetors.
This is a fairly simple conversion, only requiring new engine mounts off the front of the engine and slight modifications to the transmission tunnel and gearbox mount.
This engine, is of course, fuel injected and either the original computer and loom etc are required or an aftermarket type, along with efi fuel pumps, return fuel line to tank, etc.
New front mounted engine mounts need to be fabricated and the alternator must be moved over to the right hand side of the engine where another problem awaits you.
The oil filter on the engine should be of the type that points upwards, not forward at an angle.Sump is from a 1600cc sohc gemini engine which needs to be shortened at the front (see overhang near pulley in picture above) or cut and shut with the original sump off the dohc engine.(about 1500 in Feb 2000) Dont expect to find many parts from wreckers as very few will touch them and those that do think they are made of gold, so be warned. .Bellett Engine Swaps, so, the old engine is tired and you would like to update it to something a little better, and faster.The rear gearbox mounting holes need to be moved back by 80mm.A small recess in the firewall is required to clear the rear mounted distributor just to complicate things.Last updated December 26, 2006.I guess they are, since apparently only about 200 cars were imported.Prices vary a lot, so shop around.A disk brake conversion (preferably all wheels) and power assistance is essential for this conversion along with an engineers inspection/certificate.Some engines have the correct sump, others may require the fitting of a Gemini sohc sump with the front 100mm (approx.) removed and the original sumps front grafted.You guys, spring is officially here on Thursday and I could not be more excited!
