Alright guys, well i got a slightl rattle/scrapey noise coming from under the hood, specifically when i am reving to about 3k RPM, or when i am letting the engine rev down, as soon as it gets near to 3k rpm i can hear something rattly vibrating at the front.

this also happens when stood still, without AC turned to ON.

Lift etc still engage and ive not noticed specifically any loss of power...

mine did that when i first got her, turned out it was the clutch, well the springs. cant remember which way round as it was over 2 years ago but the upgraded clutch either had covers put over the springs or they were removed as the original ones had covers on. the Toyota guy showed me the difference - the friction plate was unworn. mines a '53 too

thanks, & to blackCTS

after much reading around (these forums) i believe it would be; Aux belt, aux bolts, heatshield, or clutch.

my clutch is drastically bad and needs replacing (only 40k miles:/). im going to Stage 1 Exedy on it and hope its not the flywheel.

its more of a scrapey/hissy type sound than an absolute rattle, but its there.

I'm replacing mine with the blueline clutch when i get back off my business trip, but I have abused my time over here and I had a Fidanza Flywheel delivered to our offices in New York yesterday and it ended up costing me £160 delivered :D

just noticed the bit doing it stood still. the noise i had was a rattle at similar revs but really noticeable on over-run. your clutch is going soon so that will eliminate that anyway. lift the bonnet if its doing it a standstill.............

looking forward to your review on the exedy clutch. really popular in the states, been looking at a lot of there aftermarket stuff - seems the aftermarket over there is good quality stuff for reasonable money. i was sceptical over yank parts as ther cars are so 5hite but the aftermarket is a different game - loads of stuff for the 2zz

well im having an oil, filter and tans oil change done at weekend by a 3rd party toyota specialist guy.

ill see what he says about it, whether he can eliminate the heatshield/belts/tensioner theory!

Unfortunately at 3KG a piece, I'd sruggle getting them in my suitcase. The company does trade on eBay and they listed having 8 flywheels in stock, so I've had one of them. They are selling for $250 through these guys + postage. It ended up costing £300 because they added on 8% tax as it was being delivered in New York + Fed Ex next day delivery to the office. Even so, It is still roughly £100 cheaper than the UK.

It might be worth considering a group buy at $250 each and have them all shipped over in 1 lot.

ahh right i see:/ good price let me know how it goes, or whether the rev's drop too quickly after trying to shift?

can you stock up on TRD oil fillers and TRD rad caps? these are quite cheap over there and small enough to go into hand luggage shoes etc!
