te wagon conversion
« on: May 27, 2016, 08:44:03 PM »

hi guy ive look through the site ive just got a 77 te wagon 6 cyl ive spoken to regency an have paper to put a rb26 dett into it bvut i need to do some upgrading i seen hopperstoppers do the front upgrade but ill need to do master cyl an rear disc the car isnt going to be made over night itll be a slow process an i must say before i get roasted why a rb26 my first car was a 77 wagon 250 crossflow then i got into imports i can put a import engine in easyer than a v8 as its more work in engineering as suspension needs to be done an reinforcing  so ive chossen this way as i can get good power out of t he engine so im seing if there is any way to upgrade the rear myself

 I built a diff using r31 skyline axles and brakes and plan to use all r31 brakes but haven't got that far yet. I don't know if regency would approve what I did as it is about 25mm shorter each side. Would think you would need to keep the same track to pass. All the bw disk offsets I have looked at are about 15mm shorter then the drum offset, so that would be an issue. If regency says the track has to stay the same you will probably have to have the ends welded off a el/f ( or similar ) and have the axles resplinded to fit and comply with the rules. The standard 25 spline axles are shit too so you need to upgrade to 28 spline. You have lodged a MR620 form then?

 Yeah I should probably update that how to thread on the diff as I have changed a few things with the diff and would probably do a few things a little different. Always saying it but I really need to pull my finger out and get the forty going again.

Just a thought. You could build a diff the same as I did and add a spacer between the disk and axle flange to get the track the same. Dont think regencey would approve but they may not notice it hidden in behind the disk. Use a standard type screw to hold it all together when the wheels are off. Obviously you can get the axles redrilled to the falcon pattern and from memory I think the el/f studs have a long sholder on the studs so would help with the spacer. Then remove the spacer after approval to fit more dish.

Just realised that probably won't work because the center locating shoulder won't protrude through the disks enough.
