Drove down to Art's shop in Pattaya with my friend Mike to pick up my
virtually new A342 trans. What you are looking at here is my old 1JZ
trans case with 100% new internals, all new electricals (senders and
wiring), a 1UZ bell housing and Performance Industries 4000 stall torque
It was a busy day! In addition to picking up my "new" transmission, I had
to return the extra 1JZ trans to my friend Mac's shop (it is a somewhat
rare case because it has the "slip yoke" tail housing) where we saw the
new tall injectors on his road race car (photo below), and pick up Mikes
Ford 200ci Ford block from a Thai machine shop for Art to mic. Mike is
restoring a 1965 Mustang convertable here in Thailand. Then we went to
the body shop that is restoring his '65 Mustang to drop off the Ford block.
I ended the day at my race track shop unloading the trans and cleaning
the pick-up bed of spilled trans fluid (very hard to get out). I will reinstall
the trans this week . . . but I will have to get an electrician to sort the
wiring 100% before I try to test it.
Mac's road racer . . . . he shifts at 9500rpm . . . so longer injectors are
good. These are 100% made in Thailand.
