1992 MR2 SW20 NA
Yes, she already had the 3pc spoiler when i got her.So manual windows means it's a G rather than a G-LIMITED like mine. Does it have a rear spoiler? The lightest lowest spec SW20 Japan offered.
You should be able to import power window parts from Japan but you are probably better off getting some USA parts being LHD.
Interesting that you fitted power steering from Corolla parts. Do you have the electric pump or somehow using the hydro pump on the engine?
The NA cars do not have the axle carrier being. They have a short left side axle and a long right side axles where the turbo powered cars have the carrier bearing with the equal length outside axles.
You might be looking at suspension ball joints, swaybar bushes or end links.
Yeah that makes things a bit harder to get around. I'm in New Zealand, not quite Australia. But we do have some great long driving roads even though we have 2 main islands that can restrict travel a small amount.
On the hose from hell, the NA has 2 hoses that do go to the oil cooler but they are well protected by a heat shield and do not get as hot because there is no turbo. I've not seen these fail on the 3SGE. So they do not have the name of HFH and HFHOE. I've had to replace my coolant bypass pipes which these hoses are connected to, not ideal doing it in the car but you don't have to worry about these, a 3SGTE problem only.
I'm using hydraulic PS, the pumps' pulley is connected to the pulley of (Iam not sure if thats) the water pump right on top of the AC compressor, its really home made, I'll send you a pic soon.
We have done ball joints, ends links and rear shock struts and at one time we tried deleting the stabilizer links so the sway bars won't move or squeak. No luck there also. I'll try strut mounts next.
What a relief, I don't have the HFH, HFHOE and non interference engine! Whew...
My mistake, the flags are so small on my cell phone, got confused with red or white stars. Sure wish i could visit your majestic fjords someday.
