    Oil level sender on 1UZFE

    Hi all, I've got a 1UZ from a 1992 Soarer, it has a sender for low oil level. When the car was not running and had no oil in it, I took it off and checked it by moving the arm up and down. It opened and closed the circuit as it should. But now it is installed on the car the light is stuck on...

    cooling system questions

    Hi all, I've got a pressure cap on my 1UZ, but the nature of the car is such that the pressure cap is not the highest point in the system. It is topologically where it was on the original soarer, but as the bonnet is very low, it is low down. So I have a separate filler cap on the heater...

    Cover panel between rear of block and bellhousing / autobox?

    Hi all, I've got a 1uz (rear sump version from a Soarer) with a Bullet bellhousing connected to a W58. I'm left with a large air gap at the bottom of the bellhousing where rain / dirt / stones kicked up off the road etc can enter the bellhousing. When I bought the engine it didn't have a...

    sealing vacuum outlets - question for Gloverman

    Hi Kelvin, I saw your video on removing unnecessary vacuum lines from the 1uz. This video: Thanks for posting it up, it was very useful. I have removed my VSV and the solid vacuum lines off the plenum. I've got a question, in the video you say "I'll do something better for sealing up the...

    Other 1uzfe injector options

    Hi Dweinhart - that's interesting, have you run these with the stock ECU and fuel setup? Or with boost? And was this with the stock ECU or with an aftermarket ECU? I'd be interested in injectors whose range allows me to run them with the stock ECU and fuelling, but allows low boost to be added...

    oil pressure gauge wiring

    Hi, Sorry only just saw this... I found this photo from ages ago in case it helps. You can see the filter pointing sideways in front of the steering rack. You can just about see in the photo that the oil filter bracket clashes with the rack (engine is on spacers at this point to raise it up)...

    Broken/dead 1UZ Soarer 40:40:40 ECU wanted

    Hi all, I’ve got a 1970s Lotus with a 1UZ, it is stock at the moment, with manual gearbox but I’ve got a long term plan to fit a Rotrex centrifugal supercharger for mild boost – 5 to 8 psi probably. I’m limited by having a W58 gearbox among other things. One of the elements to figure out is...

    oil pressure gauge wiring

    Hi Jeff, If you're talking about the silver coloured oil filter adaptor that i posted a pic of, that is from an early 1UZ soarer. I still have that somewhere. on my build it clashed with the steering rack, but I kept it in case it was needed for any reason... Cheers, Mat.

    1uz fan idler bracket failure

    Hi all, Btw thought I'd update on this - after sitting in Coventry for customs clearance for ages, i got the bracket and fitted it a couple of days later. It has run fine since, as it's a genuine part and Kelvin tells me it's a "sealed for life" bearing, so hopefully will last.... Thanks again...

    questions about fitting a centrifugal supercharger

    Hi all, I am looking to supercharge a 1UZFE, my 1UZ is swapped into a Lotus with a very low bonnet line. So Rootes/twin screw type blowers that sit on top of the engine are out, so has to be a centrifugal - I am looking at fitting a Rotrex C38. I have made a plywood mockup of the bracket...

    1UZ Variable A/C Compressor Wiring

    Hi, I've got an early Denso AC compressor on a 1992 1UZ with the 40/40/40 pin ECU. I have just wired 12v to the mag clutch off a relay from the AC button / climate control in the car. But I have not sent any connection from this to the ECU, the idle does drop significantly when the AC is...

    1uz fan idler bracket failure

    Hi melvinmelvin, The idler bracket I ordered from Gloverman has made it as far as Coventry (waiting for customs clearance), so I should be receiving it soon. But I thought I'd try Yeomans, the dealer you mentioned to see if they were any better - They did make a decent effort at trying to help...

    1uz fan idler bracket failure

    No worries Melvinmelvin - I get what you meant. but I'll remember the Yeomans dealer and try them next time I need a part. In fact I might try seeing if they can find this part without knowing the car model or part number. Bearing in mind the part I want is off a different car which I can't...

    1uz fan idler bracket failure

    Thanks Melvinmelvin, I have been going to Curry Motors for the few 1UZ parts I've needed - the odd thing like a throttle body gasket and a PAS O ring etc. It is a very large Toyota dealer - the sales/showroom bit is in Twickenham (and a few other showrooms in other places) the service and parts...

    1uz fan idler bracket failure

    Gloverman Please let me know when this part is in and I'll buy one - assuming you will ship to the UK? How much d you sell them for? Thanks guys - this forum has helped me out a few times now.... When I go to my local Toyota place (main dealer) they can't/won't look up anything without the...
