Patches Posted January 14, 2022 Author Share Posted January 14, 2022 Small update My stored gearbox is at a local rebuilder to get stripped down and inspected and have the open diff removed to swap into the box that's currently on the car. I've ordered seal kits for the 2 gearboxes from Nengun (Toyota - Gasket Kit, Transaxle Overhaul (mtm) Part number 04331-12080 for anyone interested) as its £42 for 2 shipped from Japan instead of £38 each here in the UK. Once he has the box opened up and he's happy with the condition of gears and synchros etc I think I'm just going to have all new bearings fitted, I think the bearings are marked with the part numbers from Koyo/NSK etc so it should save a lot of cash rather than getting them from Toyota. Once the box is ready I will take the gearbox off my car and bring that down so he can open it up and swap the diff over. Ideally I want the other box repaired and probably sold but the issue is the synchro's changed in the C56 (it might even be a C52) at some point and you really need the VIN number for the car the box came from to identify the correct parts you need. Tim at TB developments reckons he could probably rebuild it and source the parts but I would have to send it down via a pallet and it could be a lot of £££ lost if he can't get parts. I got my Exedy Stage 1 clutch but thought it was the wrong friction disc in the box as it only had 4 springs in it. Turns out after a lot of back and forth and speaking to Exedy UK that they changed the friction disc form a 6 to a 4 spring model, I'm assured it's the same material and will hold the same power but should be nicer to use. We will find out soon enough. Other than that I've got a Supra clutch switch (Part number 88280-14030) for enabling launch control. Hopefully this will fit onto the clutch pedal instead of the adjustment bolt that's there now, I haven't even measured it haha. I've also spent ages trying to source the connector housing for it which looks like its Toyota part number 90980-10906. This uses Yazaki 090 II female terminals I will report back if this fits Quote Link to post Share on other sites
