  1. Aaaaahh! It is a 910 oilpan and a 910 tube?! That explains the difference .... Sorry the engine is from 1974.....says the engine number G74 12
  2. @rjwooll Thanks for measuring! But: That short?! Mine is about 20 cm. Do we have now an interesting subject? Different length of dipsticks and their tubes? Different leves in oil pan?
  3. The dipstick is okay. It is soldered (see photo) and is not split. My subject here is that I don't trust the reading. I put in 5 liters, and the result of the 5 liters should be the right level in the pan. The dipstick shows different. That's why I am searching for the right length of the tube.
  4. Thanks! That´s a good hint! I am referring to an Excel 912 engine. My dipstick tube is a bit loose and oil is coming out on the connection tube/pan. Thus it is possible that it is to deep pushed in the pan. But is there no recess to avoid this? And: how long should be the tube? Please can someone measure the length of the dipstick tube for comparison? In the manual is no figure about this. cheers! Michael
  5. Hello! i have changed oil and filter. I filled 5 liters of oil in like the workshop manual recommends for oil change. At the dipstick it is much over max. Indeed it is at he "x" of the max on the dipstick. Is the dipstick wrong or the manual? cheers! Michael
  6. Hi, all! I would like to remove the rear light cluster on my Excel to clean the interior. left and right have different illumination because of dirt inside. But I can find only one screw in he boot which do not hold the light cluster. Any ideas? Cheers! Michael
  7. As many parts of suspension, brakes and drivetrain are from the Toyota Celica Supra MA 61, here a illustrated parts catalogue for ordering at Toyota dealers
  8. sorry, forget to mention that it is an Excel with this Toyota items in its interior
  9. I am referring to this part, which is mentioned in the service parts list and in the manual
  10. Thanks for all the replies. it is not that Rimmer´s device. The rimmer´s device compares the pressure in the circuits. If pressure is different, a warning light is engaged. I was looking for that pressure limiting device for the rear circuit. At least I swapped the original by a simple device. it is from Ford Mondeo with 3/40
  11. Hola! Is it that simple to remove the flange of the output shaft at the diff with a slide hammer as it is mentioned in the workshop manual? Or have I to open the diff to remove the circle clip first? Saludos! Michael
  12. it ist that pressure limiting device to avoid locking up the rear wheels
  13. Hi! The rear brakes system includes a brake limiting valve in the engine bay. I tried to bleed the new brakes. but nothing came out of the bleeds. I checked the valve by opening the fittings: in yes, out nothing. I opened the valve only to see that the piston stucks. Any idea from what car this presure limiter is? cheers! Michael
  14. Want to change mi throttle cable. engine bay no problem, but under the dash??? I dived down only to find out that I cannot reach the connection of the cable to the pedal. Have I to dismantel the whole dashboard ? cheers from Europe! Michael
  15. Hi! I am looking for the oil pressure relief valve on a 907 engine but cannot find anything at the engine. Is it included in the oil pump? But there is only a spring pushing the distributor in position. Anyone here who can help me ? cheers! Michael
