Vin number confirmation (Corona 1974)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I’m helping a guy to find parts for his 1974 Corona 2l auto saloon.

He needs a brake master cylinder and our usual place (Rockauto.com) are out of stock.

Thing is, everywhere I search require the vin number.

Found the vin number on the registration document and also on the vehicle, but the places say it should be 17 digits long. Neither are 17 digits.

The number on the paperwork is RX12908053 (as it is on the vehicle), but the engine plate has “HD” after the model.

Can anyone help in which number is correct please?

In japan they use a frame number, due to its age it may not be on any data bases, but i will have a look

The 17 digit format was adopted from 1981, so a 1974 model wouldn't necessarily follow that format.

After a bit of digging A RX12 would have been sold under the Toyopet brand in Japan, the nearest equivalent would be the 73-79 corona RT10 

edit. Booster or non booster, single or twin outlet ?

Thanks guys!!

Ummm, it has a booster I think. It’s bolted onto a round thing, which I seem to remember had booster written on it.
It has 2 reservoirs.

I was wondering why you were using rock auto as they are american based

Not 100% on the fitment but a rebuild kit will be cheaper and easier to get, i will have another look

this is one reference to the kits

http://auto-kat.com/index.php?route=saleepc/general/parts&modification_id=6747&partnode_id=276

Hi mate,
I’ve been having a chat with the mechanic and he said a rebuild kit will do for now, but really needs a full cylinder eventually.
Maybe I can find one better when this lockdown is over.

In the meantime, many thanks for your searching and digging on the matter

I’ll order a rebuild kit from UK, so it will hopefully be back by the weekend.

I can’t seem to get anything from those links you sent though. Maybe I’m doing something wrong.

ps. We got a few parts that were difficult to source in uk, from rockauto and have used it ever since, as they are reasonably priced and have never failed to have the part we need until now. Cut out a lot of searching and digging haha

Just checking the 2 oem parts now...
04493-20010 seems like the one. It says mkII (RX22).
04493-20070 says RT104 and has different parts and seals included. 

How can I find the correct one?
Is it a case of the mechanic taking it apart and seeing what seals are involved?

Thinking about it, the rebuild kits are so cheap that I may as well order them both and flog the one that’s not needed

There seem to be 2 sizes of master cylinder 22mm and 27mm
 
im still finding references to the RT10/rt114 and MX10

you could try https://brakeparts.co.uk/

Also sent an email to brakesparts.co.uk as they have no parts listed for the model on the website, but say they may be able to source them

No joy with that website. They don’t stock any brake parts for mkII.

Afternoon FLash,

Garage have got the cylinder off and say that the part we bought is wrong and the measurement is 23.5mm.
I'm totally lost now as can't find any that match that description.

OK, thanks mate. 
Where would I find a specialist? I thought a classic car garage would be specialists. Or do you mean a dedicated TOyota classic car garage?
Thing is, the car is already at the garage and the cylinder is in bits I think
