Re: JDM Legends

They differently need some schooling on TIg welding thin metal, their welder ( looks like a older Miller Syncowave in the one camera shot), has the capability of pulse which they should of used welding thin sheet metal. I think that they are a jack of all trades and a master of none. I am glad that ...

Re: Availability of quality main and rod bearings

Does Nissan have bearings anymore ? I have always used OEM. There has been some misprints in the Tom Moore book, maybe this is another one.

Very nice! If these start selling in some numbers, have thought about having them cast?

Re: Suspension and brake questions, I searched

Looking to the future, I wonder how long the 280zx calipers and rebuild kits are going to be available. I think that moving to a current made caliper is a good idea (wilwood, etc). For brake pads, my go to are Porterfield r4s, which are available for the wilwood.

Michael,
As usual top notch work. Of coarse I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Sorry I missed running into you at SEMA.

Re: SEMA 2017

The wagon was pretty bad, didn't have a rear bumper, mounting holes not even filled. I would have been ashamed to show in it at the local cars and coffee. Troy's built 510 was a lot nicer, I am sure there was some sleepless nights on that car to get it done in five weeks, but it did look nice. One c...

Re: How much does it weigh?

Is the flywheel on the VQ the factory dual mass one? If it is, it is very heavy, a Jim Wolf one is very light.

Re: SEMA 2017

Good show this year, lots of Datsuns compared to previous years and a lot of them in the main show area, not in the shadows. Datsun's where the most popular marque of the Japanese at the show. Did notice that some of them seemed to be thrown together with not enough build time.

Yes and theirs probably others. Another idea is to make the mounting plate also be the caliper mounting too, killing two birds at once.

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Feel free to bitch slap me if you like, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making a completely new control arm, why not make it so that you can use a bolt on hub like on many newer cars? This would effectively shorten the bearing area giving you more room for a longer shaft. My thought...

Re: What's wrong with my diff??

I wonder if the STI temp sensor would fit those diffs? That way you could monitor while driving. Do you think that loctite bearing retainer would work?
