Options would have been
1) Buying a third engine (just for the Bakelite backing),
2) Importing one from Ebay and hoping its the right spec.
3)Going Aftermarket ECU. (would have been the last option)

Luckily for me , I'm part of this great forum and 7M guys look out for one another you know!

Thanks to Everdt for connecting the dots and doing the ground work!
He contacted Cres and viola the rest is history.

Thanks Cres for your assistance!
I owe you one!

To be honest this was the hardest part I've had to source for my 7MGE.
No, not Toyota, Caryota, Mikes Place, Alert, Master parts or Diesel electric (exhaustive list...) could assist me.
Only the rotor I ordered new from Toyota, but that's it.

Glad to hear that you managed to find one! :thumbup:

I actually phoned our local dealership just in case they had one gathering dust on their shelves - was hoping to surprise you, but no such luck from my side. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
