I bought my 1992 All-Trac in January of 2006. I bought it with a blown engine and some rust. The car was completely stock and the interior was in great shape! I bought the All-Trac as an alternative to buying a turbo kit for my 2001 Celica GT-S.

January 8th 2006 - Day I picked the car up. Drove 12 hours one way.

April 16th 2006 - Cranked the car for the first time. I forgot a washer behind the timing belt tensioner, so the belt rode towards the inside of the pulleys causing it to wear. I installed a washer and replaced the timing belt. I also found out that the radiator fan did not work. This is probably the reason why the car had blown the head gasket to begin with. Replaced the radiator fan with an 11" SPAL fan.

November 4th 2006 - I noticed that it was very hard for me to get the transmission into 3rd and 4th gears at the track the previous night. The night after I went to the track, I was racing a 2nd gen Turbo eclipse with a 20g turbo. I couldn't get the car into 3rd gear at all. The transmission was finished. I parked the car and sourced another transmission from my friend that had just bought a GT-Four front clip for his 3s-gte swap.

April 24th 2007 - Stripped the interior. Ground away rust spots in the hatch area/spare tire well. Painted and sprayed rubber coating. I also found a mysterious device in the driver side interior panel under the rear speaker. After some searching, I found out that it is a Lo-Jack device. I also found a cable with a BNC connector under the carpet under the driver seat. It led into the headliner.

I started putting the interior back in. I cleaned and scrubbed the carpet, then pressure washed it. Cleaned the rear seats and interior panels and installed.

September 16th 2007 - Installed the rest of the interior. I'm at a stand still right now. Can't really do anything else until I order the bushings for the suspension. I ordered about $100 worth of bolts from Toyota for all the underbody parts (front crossmembers, driveshaft, rear subframe, etc). I also bought a Whiteline rear sway bar. Just need to save up some cash for more parts so I can continue.

September 17th 2007 - Installed custom rear brake lines. My old brake lines were rusted completely through, and were falling apart. I bought two 25' rolls of 3/16" steel brake tubing, and picked up some brake line connectors from the junk yard. I pulled the original lines off the car and laid them out on the ground. Unrolled the new brake line and bent it according to the old lines. Test fit on the car, and made necessary adjustments. Cut off excess tubing and put the fittings on the ends and flared the ends of the tubing. Installed the brake lines onto the car and put the brake line covers on. It was a huge pain, but brakes are kind of important. :)

September 22nd 2007 - The axle seals in the rear differential were leaking, so I took the rear diff apart to inspect. The gears inside looked great, but the bearings not so great. Looks like it ran low on gear oil and the bearings got heated up pretty good. Need to order bearings and seals.

October 2nd 2007 - I've been cleaning and painting parts over the last week. Just about everything is ready to be put on the car. I'm waiting on my polyurethane bushings to arrive. The only parts left to be treated and painted are the front control arms and the driveshaft. I mounted the Supra TT fuel pump in the sending unit yesterday and finished getting the fuel tank ready.

October 16th 2007 - I'm waiting for a shaft to fix my shop press. I'm also waiting on my polyurethane suspension bushings to come. Waiting on my solid aluminum rear differential mount to come from Austria. When these parts come in, I'll be able to install the front suspension, rear suspension, rear subframe, driveshaft, fuel tank, fuel lines, etc. I'll be ready to install the engine then.

Here are some goodies that I received in the mail yesterday.

June 5th 2008 - I've been troubleshooting wiring problems for the past few weeks. I finally got my AEM EMS working, so the car is getting spark now. Still isn't cranking. Looks like I'm getting low voltage at the fuel pump. After some troubleshooting, I'm only getting about 7-8 volts out of the Circuit Opening Relay. Hopefully when I get that replaced, the car will finally crank.

So what makes this project special enough that it gets to be important on in the racing forums as opposed to in the members projects section?

that's what I was wondering, i mean, we like you, we really do, but there is a "Member's project" section devoted to just this thing. Keeping this out of place would only cause havoc and chaos in the forums to ensue.

July 11th 2008 - Took the car down to the 1/8th mile track in Irvington, AL. This was the first time that I've launched my car since I got it back together. My 2-step isn't working correctly yet, so my launches weren't that great. I am running 17-18 psi. Still running a very conservative tune on the AEM EMS. I have much power still left untapped!

September 17th 2008 - Removed the head. The head had a small oil leak from the head gasket. I had re-used my HKS head gasket and some of the coating material had peeled off, causing oil to slightly leak out. Ordered a Cometic gasket for MUCH cheaper than the HKS, car should be back up in a week or so.

November 12th 2008 - Time for a new engine!


Last Sunday I got the Alltrac running again. It was down for a couple months for a head gasket job and some other small things. So anyway, did some tuning and it was running great. Later on that night on my way home, I was doing a 3rd gear pull, heard a "boom". The car still drove just fine and boosted good. I came up to a red light and heard a knocking sound that sounded like rod knock.. shit. Took it home and parked it. Compression test: 160, 120, 110, 150. Hmm.. engine is coming out.. again.

Pulled the engine out last thursday and I didn't open the engine up until tonight. Here is the extent of the damage.

March 23rd 2009 - Got my head back from the machine shop. Still waiting on the block and rotating assembly.

I also sent my injectors out to WitchHunter.com to be cleaned and flow tested. Sent them out on Monday and got them back on Saturday. EXCELLENT service!

Started to assemble my head. The valves and springs are in. Just need to shim the valves now.
