    Boost compensator star wheel adjustment

    G'day everyone, does anyone know what would prevent the star wheel from going further down (less spring tension - rotating clockwise). I'm adjusting it to run only 15psi, but there is still some travel left before the follower pin rides up on fuel cut on the aneroid pin. However, the star wheel...

    Sudden improvement in power with no work done....

    Freshly rebuilt 14BT (including pump and injectors) about 20,000km ago. I've felt that I've had a bit of fuel starvation for a while, especially at higher revs when giving it a bit, and then all of a sudden I've got a noticeable improvement throughout the rev range including up high 2.5 to 3k...

    Setting IP Timing without FSM

    I'm in the process of trying to figure out the best IP Timing for my 14BT in the absence of an FSM. A factory Toyota 14B is between 1.31 to 1.37, while the marinized version the Yamaha ME372sti is 1.19. I have got the process of changing the timing down to an art, so no issues there. My question...

    Bad fuel?

    Driving home on the highway sitting on 105km/h and I started to overtake, but it would accelerate then slow a bit like it was being starved of fuel? This kept happening for about 20 Kilometers, then it seemed to come good and would accelerate as normal the rest of the way home (150km). It did...

I can always get full right lock, but sometimes when turning left I only get a marginal amount of left. Other times I can get full left lock. I jacked up the...

    3B, 13B, 14B Lower Thermostat Housing Question

    I'm currently doing some work to my cooling system and wanted to check if anyone has an idea about the following: I am thinking about plugging a water inlet that goes to the lower thermostat housing. I think it would have been originally part of the heater system? As I don't have a heater and...

    14BT Rebuild

    Just thought I would throw this one out there in case anyone is interested. I've got a week off in September so I'll be pulling the 14BT out of my 40 and rebuilding it with a local engine rebuild shop. I'm normally really slack with photos of work I do, but I'm going to try and document things...

    Frankenstein J40

    G'Day All from North Queensland - Australia... I thought it is about time I posted my kind of recent purchase up here as I've been a long time reader but without much to contribute really. I had been on the lookout for a custom dual cab 40 series for about eight years, when I came across a post...
