  1. Okay so I have quite a few spare ea71s for my 78 sema brat project and someone used the oil pan as a jack point and then only changed the oil pan and if that wasn’t bad enough the oil pick up tube got bent and someone tried to pry it out with a screwdriver and I tried to gently get it out and it’s starting to tear at the insert point it’s about halfway out but I’m afraid it might be beyond saving so my questions are do I separate the tube from the insert then try to pull the insert out separately and tig weld it back together later? and does anyone have a spare? thanks for the help in advance

    Rotary Powered BRAT?

    I actually have a lot of experience with a rotary and a buddy of mine just got a brat with a 13b rotary mounted and is working on the transadaptor but might change the transmission and rotarys are not terrible engines but you need to drive them or they go bad similar to a Porsche anyways best of luck to the project but I’m afraid my friend is one step ahead of you

    Rwd swap a brat

    How do you know
  6. If I take the front axles out of my brat (properly I won’t just pull them I know they hold the hubs in place) and if I put it in 4wd drive then would I have a rwd brat and would I be able to do donuts but more importantly would it be safe I’m trying to get this brat(1978) to sema 2019 all help would be appreciated if that wont work has anyone mates a rwd drive trani to a ea81(that’s whats going into it the ea71 is getting sold)
  7. Hey guys I had a few questions for the brat I’m having custom axles made and getting some classic jam rims but before I get the same size all around I was wondering what the limitations are for the brat (78-81) 4wd was my main question is why is it limited to 50mph because I was told depending one what the limitations where I could have a shop do some changes and get it to where it’s basically awd if not I still need to know because my boss(he does Porsche’s which are very different but he knows his motorsports and performance things) said if I wanted a rwd brat I could disconnect the front axles and leave it in rwd I plan on having this at sema in 2019 and have everything lined up thanks for the help in advance
  8. I was wondering if anyone knows what kinda carb I would need to get a turbo on I know I would need a blow through and I was wondering if anyone had experience (good or bad idea) thanks
