    Auto Trans Oil Change?

    https://z31performance.com/forum/z31-performance-upgrade-forums/driveline-aa/569-jatco-3n71b-4n71b-automatic-trans-buildup-information. Link to what I did to mine. I also picked a manual valve body from keas. My torque converter was restalled to 3k. I bent input shafts and ballooned the converter if I brake boosted in low. I switched to brake boosting in 2nd then dropping into low when leaving. Never damaged the trans doing that. The guy that sells shift kits on ebay has a good kit if you don't want a manual vb from keas.

    Auto Trans Oil Change?

    IMHO the best oil to run is jd hydraulic fluid. I was pushing over 400whp thru a jatco and it was the only oil that wouldn't slip. Ever. In fact it lowered the stall from 3k to 2400 because it was so grabby. I bent the tangs on the input shaft but it didn't slip. A low power application would last forever assuming seals and such aren't leaking. I would run at least 1qrt/ltr of standard oil because it makes it easier to see the fill level. YMMV.

    Ignition Switch problem

    The new switch seems to be faulty. A buddy gave me switch from another datsun (620 or something like that). It does not have the issue that the new switch and the old stock switch have which is a small contact point where the start switch gets powered just before the full lock position. Still not sure on this..............

    Ignition Switch problem

    Gentlemen; when I turn my key to the lock position my starter engages. I've replaced the switch with a used unit and a new unit with no change. Other than that little issue the wiring seems to be fine. Has this happened to anyone before? I'm going to dig into the wiring next week, but I can't see how the ignition switch can't be the culprit.

    Water Temp Sensor Wiring

    What I've got is a 240z with an L28ET swap that I'm re-doing. The previous owner didn't use the stock guages so that part of the wiring is gone. I've got everything hooked up except for the water temp sensor. I know where the temp sensor runs to in the turbo harness. What I'm after is where the stock guage wiring runs through firewall into the engine bay.

    Water Temp Sensor Wiring

    Can someone tell me where the sensor wire goes through the firewall and then on to the water temp sensor? I've done an L28ET swap on a 72 and have the wiring done except for this damn water temp sensor. Some of the factory harness was there but no temp sensor wiring.
