Cleaning the 4a-> t50 bellhousing ( carina 4age swap )

I bought a 5 speed t50 gearbox which came from a toyota corolla ae86 ( rear wheel drive ).
there was also a bellhousing attached to it, which i need for my carina 4a-ge swap.

When i was cleaning the t50 gearbox i discovered a crack in the housing,
So maybe i can't use the gearbox, but i still can use the bellhousing.
The 1982 carina also uses a t50 5 speed, so i can attach the 4age on it with this bellhousing.

First it was like this.

Then i start cleaning the bellhouse ( lots of work )

And now it's ready to use for my 4a-ge 16v swap for my toyota carina.

The 4a-ge 16v i am going to swap in the carina, is still in my toyota ae82 gt.
I drove it like 4/5 years ago, and the engine is still going strong.
I'm going to clean the engine and doing some more mod's before i swap it into the carina.
There are some video's were you can hear the sound of the engine.
I couldn't upload both video's, so i just put the youtube link here and there is another video underneath.

And also this one, it's a soundcheck recorded in dark.

Bought some new tools

I bought some nice new tools,
This tool is a mold, i use this when i work with sheet metal.

This is a 20mm belt sander.
I bought this, cause my electric belt sander broke down and this new tool uses cool air to operate... so there is no electic-motor which can overheat. Very very nice tool for deburring your sheetmetal or parts. And ofcourse with old cars, it's very nice to remove rust. There are also polishing belts available.

Got myself some new wheels for the bmw e30 ! Work Meister M1.

I got myself some new wheels for my bmw e30 project. Seems to be a pretty unique set, cause these were the first 17 inch meister m1 wheel...
