Re: Cam etching/engraving decipering

260 may be the duration. L4s are rated at 428 degrees but most cams are rated at 0.050" lift so I imagine the factory cams are 220 or so really.

Most L4 are 0.413" lift some early L16s were around 0.390"

if 260 and .450" lift that's just right and not too radical..

Re: Factory Tachometer Install with EI - Resistorr Size for use with EI Dizzy

As current is the same anywhere in a circuit, being ahead of the coil or after may not matter... BUT it must be in line.

Re: Factory Tachometer Install with EI - Resistorr Size for use with EI Dizzy

No not what I said. The tach is fitted in line between coil negative and the distributor. Not between ignition and coil negative.

It may work between ignition and the positive terminal, but I connected on the negative side.

Re: Factory Tachometer Install with EI - Resistorr Size for use with EI Dizzy

It should be connected between the coil negative and the EI. Or take the wire off the coil negative terminal and insert the tach between to complete the circuit.

Re: upgrade alternator

All Datsun/Nissans switched to internal regulator for the '78 model year. They also switched to EI ignition. Ford Quest and Mercury Villager alternators (yes some Fords used Nissan VG engines) 93-98 - v40 = VG30E = 1 sliding door made in TN = Mitsubishi 110 amp 99-03 - v41 = VG33E = 2 sliding doors ...

Re: Factory Tachometer Install with EI - Resistorr Size for use with EI Dizzy

Wattage is just a measure of how well the resistor dissipates heat that is produced. A 1,000 ohm 5 watt resistor is identical to a 1,000 ohm .5 watt resistor as far as resistance. Points and EI are essentially the same... an on and off 12v signal. I had an inductive Datsun tach from a 1200 in my L20...

Re: Wtb 7/8 280zx bmc

I have a ZX 15/16" in my 710 and the guy at the local NAPA found a rebuild kit in a box on a back shelf. He said he had worked there for 20 years and had never seen that style of artwork on the box and it was probably from the mid '80s. It was the only one I could find anywhere. I suspect the '...

Re: Nissan/Datsun FS5W60A Transmission

There were two 60 series 5 speeds the FS5W60L and the FS5W60A. The L was a dogleg pattern and only available from August through November of the '80 model year. The A was a regular shift pattern used from December on.... 32604-H9700 is the A baulk or synchro ring number for all 5. The SW5W60L are al...

Re: Brakes

Totally agree. Hey it's been mentioned to me that new brake shoes are no longer staggered in their lining placement which sort of negates the servo action of the leading/trailing shoes. Have you heard of this? A member on line mentioned that the linings are now centered so there is no proper placeme...

Re: Brakes

Seems ... scary. But that's by today's standards. Four X nine inch drums is a lot of stopping power for 2,200 pounds!!! My old Plymouth Fury had 10 inch drums and god knows what it weighed probably another ton.
