Here's a few of the parts I am using in my RWD conversion on my 1988 Sundance. The fuel tank is the original which was cut down to fit. The manual steering rack is out of a 1986 Mazda RX7. The axle is out of a 1986 Ford pick-up. All I can say about the fuel tank is it doesn't leak

Here's a picture from a couple days ago just before I set it in. Also a picture of the interior which I haven't even started on yet.
In case anybody see's something and wonders "why the heck did he do that" the answer is because I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING !!! But it's fun trying something different.

1990 Toyota Supra turbo 5spd

One drain, but if you look close at the picture you'll see I added a piece of 3/4" hose connectiong the 2 sections. Worked good on the bench kept both sections about the same level. Guess I'll find out how it works on the car.

I swapped the complete steering knuckles and brake assembly's from right to left and left to right.

Should be driveable in a couple of weeks. Probably be a lot longer before I finish the interior.

1.40 Your talking to a person who could barely get 1.9's:)

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Russ, thanks for the vote of confidence. I plan on making it to SDAC this year. I don't have a trailer so the only way my car's going to get there is by driving it. I think it's going to be a long drive with no air conditioning and no power steering, but #$$@ it I'm keeping the cruise control

why didn't you use a dakota rack? Also, your K-frame, did you just cut the center section out and weld in support brackets?

Very nice work. This is exactly why I keep my TD's. It's all the possibilities with these cars. I'm starting to wonder if these are the small block chevies of the 4 banger world with all the powertrain/body combos.

You just lit a fire under my tail to get my current project finished.

Nice job.

I actually bought a Dakota manual rack first, but a couple of days later on another trip to the junkyard I saw the Mazda rack and picked it up just in case. After comparing the two the mazda was smaller in diameter ( the section the runs under the oil pan ) so I could mount it higher, and it was much easier to cut the mounting brackets off the frame of the Mazda.

That's exactly what I did on the K-frame. The factory center section would not clear the transmission. The sway bar is still pretty close it only clears by 3/8"

2.2 lanceres:
It bolts right up after you change the bell housing, front bearing cover, and come up with an adapter for the pilot bearing. Oh and you also need a hydraulic clutch system
