  1. I've recently pulled apart my rear suspension. And was going to replace my rear bearings, since I bought them a couple of years ago, and never installed them. Problem is, I can't get the ^#%$^ nut off. I notice that Nissan smashes it into the threads, and so it seems that you need to use a nut breaker, and just break the nut. Then buy a new one, and smash it back in. Is this how to do it? Please help.... How has anyone else done it? -- Chris :disappoin
  2. I do notice a slapping sound coming from the head when I start the engine. Would that be a sign of valves out of spec? -- Chris
  3. Anyone notice in the other pictures the Socket extension in the end of the hose attached to the anti-backfire valve? -- Chris
  4. Over view of the Engine...
  5. Please notice the difference in color between lobes 5 & 6 from the right. The picture doesn't show it very clearly, but there is a difference. Also the orange strip.. I think it is paint, need to look closer, but does that identify what type of cam it is? -- Chris
  6. I've just pulled the valve cover off my Z, and noticed that the lobes on my Engine are slightly different colors. Some are very shiny, while others are dull. Below are a couple of picture? And I to guess that the valves are out of adjustment. Some always touching the lobes, while some do not? -- Chris

    Dead Battery

    Okay: I just went out side to work on the Z and changed the oil, and gaped the sparkplugs, when I then decided to balance the carbs. I found all my tools, and was getting ready to start her up. I looked in the manual it said warm it up to normal operating temp. So I jumped into the seat and turned the key... NOTHING!!! Tried a couple more times, NOTHING... Not even a solenoid would move... So I grab the VOM, and checked the battery.. 0.03v "It's dead Jim" Now what is funny, is that one week ago, I replaced the battery because it went bad.. It was dead, and wouldn't take a charge. So r
  8. Yeah, that sound like a great Idea. It has been 6 months since I started it. I'll do it this weekend, and post a message on how things go later.. -- Chris [This message has been edited by Chris (edited 05-25-2000).]
  9. Okay People, Here is one for ya. I think it may just be a misbalanced carb. But tell me what you think. First some background: I recently pulled my Z car out, for a move, havn't driven it all winter. And when to start it, and sure enough, battery is dead. So I jumped it, and let it charge, no go. It was so dead that it wouldn't take a charge. I ran down to sears, and exchanged it for a new one, was still under warrenty. And then put it in and turned the key, fires right up. Running a little rough, but what do you except, it's been all winter. I let it warm up, and rev the engine a
