  1. Today
  2. I'm using the stock manual pump. Not sure what you (siteunseen) mean about getting the cables right. Are you referring to setting the choke cables correctly? I basically pushed the choke lever fully open and attached the choke cables with the cable levers fully dis-engaged. I then made sure they opened the butterflies evenly and pushed the jets down. Is there more to it then this? I'll give it a shot with the updated timing and see what happens also. I do think at 2.5 turns out the car would be very lean- bet I will confirm.
  3. There’s some great news coming down the pike for Toyotaku. Toyota will soon make reproduction parts for the A70 and A80 Supra. The news was revealed by none other than Shigeki Tomoyama, head of Gazoo Racing and A80 owner, at … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  4. Speed bleeders have worked very well for me for years, some times it is hard to find someone else to pump the brake pedal and speed bleeders make it a one man operation.
  5. Yeah, you're quoting my conscience.
  6. The Datsun 520 and 521 were the first real compact pickups to make it big for Nissan, and their endless charm is still readily apparent today. In age where pickups are mostly gigantic and laden with the bells and whistles … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  7. These have a zero offset. No issue at all with the rotor caps. These are the 16x7 size.
  8. If stopped working means it just quivers and jumps or it doesn't read right, that sounds like the ignition module. They go bad often these days after 40+ years.
  9. I was going to mention that you don't have to be exact on the rotations. For example, in first gear you'll have 3.592, 3.321, or 3.062, for example. 3.592 is between 3 1/2 and 3 3/4, 3.321 is between 3 1/4 and 3 1/2, 3.062 is almost right on 3.0, for one complete turn of the output shaft. Set your tail shaft indicator straight up, estimate the turns to get a full rotation and see what you get. The 1/4 turns are easy to eyeball. Once you look at the possibilities and try a few counts you'll say "it has to be ____".
  10. Some logs from the other day.... 51819-1 by blodi, on Flickr 51819-2 by blodi, on Flickr
  11. The mostly OEM harness and the added on wires from: horn, HIDs, LEDs, dual electric fans.
  12. CruiZer(currently not) & Racer... Chris
  13. I will send you an explanation of what happened in a text. The picture is a good one
  14. Yesterday
  15. you are right its a 280z thing on the rear. I figured there must have been a reason for going with more rubber, hence would prefer to not use the spacer.
  16. For all the hardship Mitsubishi Motors has been going through, it was the only Japanese carmaker to officially welcome its owners and fans to its US headquarters for a big car show and party every year. Sadly, after 15 years, … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  17. It was flatbedded to SZRpro this morning. Waiting for their report.
  18. EuroDat

    Used 5 speed

    Like Dave and Zed head have already said. If you can crack it open and visually inspect the synchro teeth, that will give you a vry good indication of its condition. If you can not (not allowed) open the transmission case, it will always be a gamble. A shot transmission can feel very good when turning it by hand I have a list of all the normal wear parts and the rear extension house bush part number and manufacture. Most of the parts are still available through Nissan or aftrrmarket.
  19. Hi Brad, Here's one located in the L.A. area: https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/pts/d/gardena-datsun-240z-front-radiator-core/6887611293.html
  20. It's your money and time. Cheaper than the wrecking yard. Good luck.
  21. It seems strange that someone would mark May 20 as National Be a Millionaire Day because, frankly, every day would seem like a holiday with that much money. Still, we can dream about how we would spend that kind of … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  22. If you're looking at tires, I noticed that Tirerack.com is offering a $70 cash card for the BFG brand. No affiliation with the site, but, worth mentioning... 😉
  23. Hi! Welcome to the club! Feel free to start posting and tell your friends!
  24. popping out front is usually due to timing or lean mixture.
