    i have no idea what im looking at really...

    The motor has been changed to twin Solex's

    now my questioning begins...

    its missing:
    Water Pump Pulley
    Alternator
    Flywheel
    Linkages
    The Dizzy appears to have no tab to bolt it down...

    now my questions are as follows...

    can i use:
    3TC Water pump pulley and alternator
    3TC Flywheel
    Where can i get a linkage kit from
    and whats the go with the dizzy?

    and does anyone have on leads on a 2TG gasket kit?

    OK I've never seen a 3TC to compare to a 2TG but as 2T and 3T i believe to be the same engine just a different Crank 2T part should be interchangable and the 2TG is a 2T just with a different head (around about there are some other difference but manily internal)

    So what I'm sayin Yes I'm sure the water pump pulley should be the same. I know for a fact the flywheels are interchangable the 3TC is heaier then the 2TG but will bolt up. Rodger on this website does make cable kits for the 2TG so best to talk to him.
    This is the kit he makes up.

    The dizzy doesn't have a tab it uses a piece of pressed steel with a semi circle at the end to fit around the dizzy and is bolted down to the block. The 2T has the same system.

    As for gaskets I've been getting mine from

    There is more information in the forum if you do a bit of searching.

    Hope this helps

    You can use a 3tc water pump you have to cut off and plug the bypass hole. On my 3tgteu the water pump pulley was smaller than the 3tc to clear. use a 3tc flywheel no prob.

    I would bet you could use a 3tc/2tc dizzy.
    TE-72 (T-18) w/3tgteu fully built
    Haltech e6x direct fire/sequential
    ae-86 (levin) footwork
    TE-71 w/1uzfe

    My local parts store (Bursons) was able to get me a 3tc water pump and a gasket kit. I had to modify the water pump as described above. Flywheel, well if you can afford an aftermarket light one Id definitely recommend it. The heavy 3tc one will sap the engines performance. I've got a lightened 2tc one (7kg) and heavyduty PBR clutch in my garage. PM me if your interested. But get a lighter one if you can. I think i also have the dissie thing your after.

    Oh and a throttle cable is better than linkages as linkages get sloppy.

    ok...firstly, thanks for the responses

    secondly, i went to the workshop today to see what i could do with the motor as far as getting it ready to bolt in goes...

    i can now confirm that:

    3TC/4A T50 with a 3T bellhousing will bolt up to the 2tg no worries
    3TC Water pump pulley can be used if you also use a 3TC alternator and pulley ***
    3TC Bay Loom will work fine with the 2TG ^^^

    cant get locally available lightweight 2TG flywheels...will look if i can get light weight 2tc ones...

    ill set up TDC tomorrow and then see if the 3TC dizzy will work...

    cheers for the help fellas

    note:
    *** i dont have a 2tg alternator so cant confirm on the 3tc water pump pulley working with 2tg alternator
    ^^^as stated above, i am using 3tc starter motor and alternator, so that may be needed to use the loom

    I think you'll struggle to get a light flywheel for a 2tg locally aside from a lightened STD one. I got my new one from TODA who shipped from japan. Took about a month from memory. Definitely worth the wait tho.

    Just a word of caution, if this engine is going into a TA22, DO NOT use a 3T water pump. The shnout is too long, and you will end up punching the fan into the back of the radiator the first time you have to jump on the brakes.

    If you use the search function it should come up with this for water pumps:
    http://www.toymods.net/forums/showth...655#post766655

    Once you have the correct water pump and matching pully, every thing else should fall into place.

    And for the linkages I recommend you contact Rodger:

    The original 2T-GEU magnetic pick up dizzy has a tab to secure the dizzy onto the block. If your innovative enough I'm sure you can knock something up with a piece of scrap metal and a screw..
