If its the factory part, I can look it up on the computers at work if someone doesnt let you know before then.
I could even see how much its worth for you . :wink:

That'd be great if you could.
Went into cheapa auto spares across the road from work today (industrial estate and really only deal with trade) and they didn't have a listing for the 4efte only the 4efe and were unsure if they were the same...
Any info greatly appreciated!

Ok, so the part listing for the manifold O2 sensor is Bosch part No. 0258986501

Let me know if you want me to find out a price and availability from our suppliers. :wink:

The listing for the 4efe seems to be different.
It has Bosch No. 0258986602

Thanks bud! I'll see if it's easy enough to get one

Gordo, I checked with my Electrical parts supplier and he can get that O2 sensor. It is a one wire style. Let me know and I can get in a a day or two. Also I can get a good price and bring it up to you. Just check the wiring loom and confirm that it is a single wire and plug.

A little bit of progress...
I've been trying to find some GT Starlet inner cv joints. I have the cups that hold the Tripot joint but nothing else. And a few of us are getting drive shafts made at the moment... I didn't think they were going to be as hard to find as they were. Turns out there are at least 3 different variants. Different size joints and cups and also different splines.
I spoke to a few different CV places and you are unable to just buy the joints, you have to get a whole drive shaft. Which is inner and outer cv's, boots, and a starlet length shaft. I couldn't get a definite answer weather the inner cups and joints were going to be the same size.
I tried a heap of Jap wreckers and no one had any.
Eventually bit the bullet and bought a set of starlet ones. And from what I can tell they should fit, and can still get them. They seem to be the same as the EP91 ones, which run a bigger joint than the EP82, the 91 ones also run a course spline and the 82 a fine spline. Seem to be the same inner shaft on the cups.
Hopefully this helps some one out in the future when they're looking at getting they're drive shafts made. If you have the GT Starlet ones KEEP THEM!

The difference between what we think are Standard starlet ones and the ones I bought (couldn't tell you which starlet they are from but I think the EP91, I might ring the mob I got them from on Tuesday and ask)

The green cup is one of the ones I had and from an EP82, the tripots don't interchange from different models.

Tricky, If you ever launch an inner joint its going to be difficult to get them. Can get them from Toyota out of Japan but they come with the cups, and are $500 odd a side for an EP82

Dan, Tricky rang me at one stage about this as I had a spare set with all my bits. I told him to give them to you - were those one of the sets that weren't suitable? At least you managed to get it sorted. I really hope it didn't cost you $500/side!

Ends up being $100 a side and I might be able to sell the starlet shafts and outer cv's. He did give me a set, they're one pictured with the number 3 on them. Not real sure what they came out of though and were the smallest by far

Fair enough. I have no idea where they came from either. Will be great to see your car on the road soon, even if it is your new one and not the van.

Will be the new one first most definitely! Have ordered the guages and am just waiting for them to arrive. Then finishing up the wiring, finish putting it back together them off for a mod plate....
Sounds simple and hopefully won't take me too much longer. Will be a stay at home dad at the start of March with 2 under the age of 2

Hi Gordo,

Those ones marked with a No.3 on them were from an Aussie Starlet (I think) - 4EFE - and the smallest diameter shaft and fine spline. The EP82 pre-1994 were larger shaft diameter, larger rollers and course spline. The EP91 (mine, and post '94) were slightly smaller rollers, but with the same diameter shaft as the EP82 but with fine spline. I have noticed quite a few differences between Nicks engine (EP82 4EFTE and pre-'94) and mine (EP91 Glanza Ltd and post '94) - tripots, distributor cap, wiring and electrics, gearbox etc...

Dan, I am not planning on doing any 4k rpm launches etc. Others have proved how fragile the Starlet drivetrain can be when pushed beyond its design limits. So glad you sorted it out though and cheaper than expected - well done!!

Cheers,
Tricky

So I have been trying to clean up my shed a little after camping at Easter... I've got to do it at night once the 2 kids and the mrs are in bed, IT'S THE ONLY TIME I GET TO MYSELF. Anyways I got most of the camping stuff away and moved on to one of hey work benches. I've been doing odd jobs lately and have just been piling everything on it and refusing to put it away.
To make a longish story shorter I found buried half way down in the mess the gauges I'm going to use in the sedan and decided it was time to further install them. The dash was made by the previous owner I just had to add 2 extra holes as I'm running extra gauges. I personally wouldn't have set the dash out like this but it was already made and I'll change it if it annoys me that much. That and the dash is a horrible shape to work with
Sorry for the dodgy pictures and yes the mess has even spilled onto the bonnet of the mini

Ohh and while I was in the mini, I found the exhaust sensor on the floor. One less thing to worry about
