View Full Version : Requesting Pictures - 3sgte mounts

09-21-2006, 03:19 AM
Looking for a few angles, really need a top view of the side mount on an st 165/185 and where it lines up on the frame. Also I would like a few pics of the front mount, and rear mount with the axle carrier.

thanks a lot :wiggle:

You are trying to stick a 3SGTE into your Camry, correct?

Use your Camry mount on the 3SGTE engine brace.
It should bolt right up.

Which trans are you going to use?
You need to get info on that trans, not the AWD one.

Im sorry, I should of put more info on.
1995 5sfe > 3sgte Camry
E153 Stage 3 Spec 6puck Clutch
Fidanza Lightweight Fly
Camry v6 axles + hubs

The camry 5sfe front mounts are slid over more in the front than the celicas, the ST185 doesnt use a dogbone mount, so i need to weld the ST185 on my frame. I havr no idea about the rear mount or the axle carrier. It would be awesome if that front mount worked.. but i need to see a picture to compare it however.

are the e153 camry v6 axles the same size as the ones on the ST185? the axle carrier may work.

Have you tried to talk with "The Wraith" about what he had to do with the passenger inner axle and the mounts?

You need to sit and think for a second here.
If you do, you will make your life ALOT easier.....
You just posted a pic of a 3SGTE in a Camry.
Using a Camry engine mount.
What does that tell you?

The Alltrac has different mounts than the Camry for a reason.
The chasis is different.
But the positions of the mounts on the engine/trans is identical.
Which means you don't have to worry about cutting/welding.
Source a V6 Camry crossmember [if it is different than yours].

are the e153 camry v6 axles the same size as the ones on the ST185? the axle carrier may work.
Easy way to verify.
Call the dealer and get the p# for the Alltrac hub and the Camry V6 hub.
If it's the same, the outer joints are the same.
If it's not, it is still possible that the joints are the same, but the probability goes down.

Thanks. I dont mean to post my ignorance, but this is what ive been told. although only a few people have done 3sgte's in the camry and are very little help when it comes to this. Thanks for the help though.

yeah ive talked to wraith, swegytian and ufoz so far, little help, but ill keep pestering them :)

No one has all the answers.....

You just have to look and think sometimes. :)
