Alto F5A / F5B Configs

Wikipedia doesn’t really mention what avail engine configurations were offered for Altos (mainly in Japan of course)

So while I’m wasting time checking part number interchangeability I thought I’d try and work this out.

  • F5A
    • SS40V (62x60mm)
      • SOHC 6 Valve Carb
    • Cx71V (62x60mm) (Leaf Spring Rear)
      • SOHC 6 Valve Carb
    • Cx72V (62x60mm) (Trailing Link Coil Spring, CC = 4WD)
      • SOHC 6 Valve
      • SOHC 6 Valve EPI Turbo (AGS*)
      • DOHC 12 Valve EPI Turbo (AGRS -XE3,-RJ13,-SE3)
      • DOHC 12 Valve EPI (AGRS -E3,-J3)
  • F5B
    • Cx11V (65x55mm) (CL = FF, CM = 4WD)
      • SOHC 6 Valve Carb
        • 4WD = AFPJ, AGPJ, AGPL-SA
      • SOHC 12 Valve Carb
        • 4WD = AGIJ, ASIJ
      • DOHC 12 Valve EPI
        • FF = AGRF, AGRL
      • DOHC 12 Valve EPI Turbo
        • FF = AGRS-XE, AGRS-XO
        • 4WD = AGRS-RJ
      • SOHC 6 Valve EPI Turbo
        • FF = AGSX-E, AGSX-O
        • 4WD = AGSR-J

    Cx11S (65x55mm) (CN = FF, CP = 4WD)

    Well, this one is a bit odd, and to be honest, I couldn’t be bothered listing all the codes.
    – SOHC 6 Valve Carb
    – SOHC 12 Valve Carb


    Fixing Bits

    Its a new year, but little has changed.
    The cars still off the road.

    Shed stuff is going slowly, have a bench and a few more tools.

    Since another Works owner contacted me on FB I noticed all the image fails on this site – so currently fixing all them.

    As the years go by..

    Haha, over a year since I last posted..

    Since the last post the white car has been moved from Mikes old place in Kanmantoo to my house – and has continued to sit waiting to be fixed
    April 2015


    The black car has the same fate, I did get the bottom A-pillar plates made by Paul @ Custom and Classic Cars;
    April 2015

    Today (3rd or 4th car cover)

    Got some things for the rebuilds
    June 2015

    September 2015

    The biggest news is in June 2015 I bought a second hand shed to put at the rear of the property just for me to all my tools and to work on all the Altos + old Lancer
    October 2015

    ^ This is the only path to get cars up; just wide enough for my LA Lancer, plenty wide for the Altos


    Forgot to title

    Shiiiiit, been a long time since I posted.

    White RSR550 has been off the road for almost a month for engine swap;

    The original F5B has had bad compression for a while now, as well as going through coolant and leaking oil. I also started noticing rubber burning – which I eventually decided was probably timing belt, so it had to be changed.

    I’d been prepping the spare F6A from Wally for a while to go in and finally decided to swap the cars over to Mikes and start the swap.


    Haven’t updated in a while due to laziness;

    Have bought many more tools, sold a few old Lancer parts.. gotten old.

    Since mentioned toolbox I have:

    Cleco Fastener Kit w/ tool
    Rivnut/Nutsert Kit w/ gun
    125mm Makita Angle Grinder
    550 x 850 x 570 mm (Working area) Blasting Cabinet
    Mini (6″ Main Wheel) English Wheel Set w/ 7 Wheels
    18″ Sheet Metal Bead Roller
    12pc Geared Spanner Set (‘Ratchet Ringies’)

    Today I picked up a 14″ Drop Saw, ordered a Engine Leveller bizzo for Engine Crane and a Digital Thermometer

    Don’t think I’ve mentioned my mad stereo setup is ‘finished’
