      Very few people use this Status thing.  There are several Mike's, the only Mike without more after his name if the Administrator of the site.  No idea what article you're talking about.  Better to respond to the actual post, not make a new one.  Welcome.

  2. Finally picked up the from the shop! I had the new flexplate dropped in; front calipers replaced with stock; rear brakes replaced and rotors turned; had to run new brake line to the rear; a new stock master brake cylinder; new brake fluid. I ended up upgrading the rear tires to 205 60 14 'cause the 1994 tires shredded in the 100+ heat. 

    After driving in first rain storm I noticed several things... 1) the original wipers suck. I not talking blades, but power to keep the water off the windshield. 2) The defroster isn't strong enough to keep the windshield from fogging up.

    Any have the same observations? Suggestions. Of course next planned purchase is the two front tires upgraded to 205 also. Scared they might be '94's also.

      It's the wiper motor, it's generally weak and needs full voltage.  Which the generally weak alternator will not deliver at idle.  A very common problem.

      The foggy window problem is common also.  The Japanese must have (had) cold feet because they designed the system so that heated air only goes to the lower outlets, or all of it to the windshield.  None through the side vents.

      And this wall/status update area is a total dead zone.  Only post here if you want your thoughts to die a slow death.

  3. Our 79 Datsun 810 is in need of a new cam.  The lifters are bad.  What would you all suggest?  We were told a 280Z would fit in here, is this true?  Where would we find the parts?  It's a 79 Datsun 810 2 Door Coupe, straight 6 engine.  Thanks.

      You should start a New Topic.  Nobody really uses these Status Update things.  Click "Start New Topic" on the right.
