OK a few problems today:
Firstly, THE 3VZE FLYWHEEL IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE RAV4 GEARBOX!
I know I've been planning to use this for a while, but the ring gear is in the wrong place, and it sits too far from the block for the bellhousing and clutch to fit. I'll be looking for an OEM 1mzfe or 3vzfe flywheel now.
Secondly, I realised that that one of the engine mounts for 3vzfe is not able to be used in the rav, as there is no strengh in the radiator support to mount it to, so I will need to build a crossmember for this. I'll put up photos explaining this in more detail when I can.
