Hey yall! Newbie here. We've had this 79 in the family since 86 and have put on hundreds of thousands of miles on it. About 4 years ago the timing chain broke and it sat dead in the backyard ever since. My son and I decided to get it back up and running. We found a wrecked 84 Celica with a 22RE in it that was running great with only 114k miles on the car. Pulled the engine and all the wiring out of the car so I could use it to convert the truck over to fuel injection. While the engine was out I put a new timing chain, water pump, oil pump, alternator, starter, clutch and various other small components on it. I swapped the oil pan and pickup from the 20r that came out of the truck onto the car's 22re engine so it would clear the engine x-member. Now the engine is sat back down in the truck with a 5 speed manual w50 gearbox. Last night I started on the fun part, disecting the wiring harness to get all required systems connected. I am going through the entire harness and removing whatever is not needed. After all the running gear is back up and functioning, we'll turn our focus to making it look cool. I am thinking we'll lower it 2-3", deal with the crappy paint, and maybe put some new shoes on it. Glad I found this place to get ideas on how to make it cool!
