    The practical advice I'm sure is sound, but DNA is not a protein. And viruses contain RNA not DNA. and isn't it Johns Hopkins? you'd think the mum of someone that workd there would know.

    shame he'll probably be asymptomatic.
  3. i think its a 260/280 disc. part number cross references here:
  4. I think original Nissan stuff is all paper/fibre so you're right to only us it once. You can get Kameari stuff here: (there's an email address on there somewhere, and Mr Mori will reply to English) Or if you're less adventurous! But I don't think they do full engine sets, just head gaskets. Apart from the cam cover, I tend to use Elring Dirko for everything else.
  5. My head gasket is on its 4th use. Its a Kameari MLS gasket and is meant to be reused. Has to be at that price!
  6. Thanks, Trevor has ordered them for me. Very quick and helpful. :thumbs:
  7. Thanks, I'll have another look. I did find a casting number on the hub, but didn't think that was it.
  8. I've been to measure, and my strut tube really is about 380mm deep, no way can it accommodate a 394mm insert, even at 42mm diameter. I couldn't find a part number on the tube - the underseal is thick anyone know where on the tube the part number is? The 8641 1033 is about maybe 2mm taller than the KYB strut, see the pic. The KYB is a 361002 and is listed as for a 240z, maybe it has to have a spacer in a 240z. (I installed them, but it was a long time ago and can't remember!) Even when fully bottomed in the strut, the 1033 is going to be a couple of mm proud. I may be able to modify the KYB gland nut to fit with it, maybe not. @KONI Lee is there a Koni distributor in EU that I might be able to buy the 48mm gland nuts from? or can you see in your parts catalogue a 42mm insert that's a bit shorter than 384mm?
  9. My strut insulators are the same front and back. So early car?
  10. I'll see what I can find.@ak260 does dating service for the UK club and that was his assessment of my VIN.
  11. Thanks Lee, I'll do some measuring tomorrow.
  12. There's a guy in the UK club with a plastic oem valve cover. I can't remember which model he said it comes from.
  13. Thanks Lee, that sounds conclusive. My old KYB struts are about 42mm OD. I have some other corroboration that my build date is earlier than I thought. It's interesting what you say about the insert lengths - the 1033 are the same length as my old KYBs, and actually the 1033's ended up sitting a coupe off mm higher than the KYBs. Maybe they're not bottomed out because they're tight. I'll have to check the length of my tube and check there's not a spacer at the bottom - as it stands, I don't think there's room for a 10mm longer insert!
