Here is the new universal joint:

002 (5).JPG
It is from a Toyota Hi Ace or Hi Lux, but there is a minor difference to the original Commodore joint, it is 1mm narrower. The Commodore joint has 29mm cups and is 79mm wide vs 29 x 78 for the Toyota part. The solution is to use 0,5mm x 29mm washers in the cup ends to make the joint even with the yoke, and secure the washers to the yoke by welding small dabs at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock around the washers. :)

The washer is needed to centre the joint in the yoke, and since the Toyota part is 1mm narrower, it is easy to eve it up with a 0,5mm washer in both ends. It is important that the joint is thoroughly centered so there will not be any vibrations. Another thing is that the original clips from the Commodore does not fit anymore, so the joint must be fastened by welding dabs instead. Like here, except that there is no washer in the picture:

Today the drive shaft was bolted in place, and so were the carbs:

The hard part comes next, the building of a well functioning linkage. :)

Your coolant temperature sender doesn´t work with your Display because both work with different resistors.

Nice work, keep on going.

Is that an oil cooler outlet on top of the oil filter ?

@ CH GS/E QP
Thank you, yes, Weber carbs are always nice too look at. :)

@ the Brain
I've never thought about the temperature sender, thank you for reminding. I guess there are other things too that I must deal with, because the engine(and the whole car, as a matter of fact) is built with parts from several different donor engines(and cars).


@ coralreef
Yes , it's an original oilcooler adapter flange with a built in thermostat. It came with the C30NE shortblock, so I thought I could as well use it since it was already there. Perhaps I should put the cooler on the outside, like on the race Commodores ? :)

At last we have a linkage, now it only needs a proper throttle return spring. :)

It´s the same Game with the Fuel sender. But thats nearly all. The rest doesn´t matters. We call it

Kudo's on your linkage for the carbs. I like it a lot!

Looks much better than a cable.
I want this on my triple trottlebody setup on the future, so i saved your picture :D

Thanks, I was pleased too with how the linkage turned out in the end.

Brake caliper rebuild was on the agenda, and as we split the calipers it turned out that one of the spacers was cracked. Fortunately I had a spare Senator A1 caliper which donated one of its spacers and we were in business again. The whole brake system with front and rear calipers, HBZ, pressure regulator, BKV and brake discs comes from a Commodore B/GSE. The only thing left before assembly on the car is to have a pair of brake hoses made, as the original B GS/E hoses are about 15cm too short.
