Re: Rear brake dust shields

The outer part which forms the disc dust shield is thinner gauge steel and spot welded to the, heavier, inner plate which carries the handbrake mechanism.

It is possible to trim away the outer part in situ as you suggested.

Re: Rear brakes pads and discs

Has anyone used the the EBC discs and Ultimax pads? How were they?
Fitted front and rear, initial impressions after the first 200miles normal road use are quite positive.

Not yet. I'm hoping they will be OK. I've fitted front and rear but not used them yet.

Browser was set to load https://www.lotusexcel.net/phpbb/ for about the last 5 years Then I manually typed the address without any /phpbb and found the new look forum. ...

Engine mounts

Has anyone got details of where the engine and gearbox mounts originate from?

Googling the numbers moulded into the somewhat perished rubber seems to indicate Toyota origins. Possibly Hilux, Hiace or Celica?

Re: Diff leaks

Thanks for the replies; Looking at the diff installation it seemed like there would be a fair chance if its only output seals once I investigate a bit more. Wikepedia lists 2nd generation Celica Supra as; MA61, MA63, MA67, GA61. Any idea if they all had the same final drive unit to help with the int...

Diff leaks

Can anybody advise if it's possible to replace the shaft seals on the diff in situ? I need to clean off and track down further but it seems to be mainly the near side output seal which is the source of the wetness.
