Re: Door Lock Issue

I believe the 240z locks had an additional indexing rib cast on the outside of the lock cylinder. I re keyed a 240z set a while ago for my 510 (used Nissan parts, not aftermarket). I believe I just ground down the extra rib and swapped the 510 arms on the backside. I would also suggest to check the ...

Re: 350 swap

Most Datsun enthusiasts don't typically peruse V8 swaps but they are done from time to time. 510's have been done but unfortunately we do see them for sale from time to time as projects that are unfinished. I seem to recall major firewall modifications may be required. I also recall that there were ...

Re: Another Headgasket Bites The Dust

I have an update. The car has not run quite right since the head gasket was replaced. The idle and off Idle have been a bit hesitant. I spent a couple hours today looking at it. The number two cylinder seemed to be running lean. I did the usual check for compression and found about 145 to 155 PSI on...

Re: Another Headgasket Bites The Dust

Car is back together. Seemed to run ok on the test drive. I will report back if any issues come up.

I also checked the thermostat just in case. It is a 180F unit that opened at 192F (tested in pot of water on stove). I left it out for now. I will put a new one in when the weather gets colder.

Re: Another Headgasket Bites The Dust

I was using a fel-pro print-o-seal. I think I bought it from rockauto a few years back.

I also forgot to mention I was using 280zx turbo head bolts.

Re: Another Headgasket Bites The Dust

Thanks for the feedback. I am using antifreeze 50% mix in my car. Visual inspection of the block looks OK. I will have to try and borrow a straight edge and check for warping. The head was measured to be less than 0.003" variation in flatness in the center. I do believe the spec is 0.003". (the 0.00...

Another Headgasket Bites The Dust

It's been about 3 years now since I changed the headgasket on my car. Yesterday it decided to go again. The failure this time appears to be a water passage on the exhaust side of #3. The gasket appears to have come apart. There are witness marks in the gasket that look like it got hot. The temperatu...

Re: Clutch Engages At Top Of Pedal Travel

The flywheel is secured by 6 bolts (L20b engine - sorry forgot to mention it) and the pressure plate is also 6 bolts. The clutch disk measures slightly smaller than 8 inches. The clutch and pressure plate will also bolt on to an L16 flywheel.

Clutch Engages At Top Of Pedal Travel

I posted this question on ratsun. I figured I should ask here as well. My 510 has a 200sx dogleg trans with the 200mm clutch. I remove the transmission today thinking my clutch was worn because the pedal would engage at the top of the pedal travel. Much to my surprise the clutch disk looked good. I ...

Re: Tach needle jumping

I had a similar issue with my 510. The tachometer needle would bounce quite a bit and headlights would flicker at strange times. My concern ended up being a lack of ground between the engine and body. I think the lack of ground connection was allowing the engine/body to be grounded thru the throttle...
