Re: Hello, I'm new. 1969 521 in San Diego

There's a large 521 following over on http://community.ratsun.net/forum/44-521/ including front disc brake conversions by Mklotz70 and BEEBANI. You can even ditch the king pins for custom ball joints. I think there is a coil spring conversion to get rid of the torsion bars.... something that would m...

Re: Speedometer problem

The trip odometer is mechanically connected to the car odometer and can be zeroed. The transmission drive cable is not directly coupled to the needle. The cable spins a magnet inside a cup with the needle attached. (somewhat like rear brake shoes inside the brake drum) The cup has a return to zero c...

Re: Doing a big bore 2.3L compression ratio help.

I don't like the Ozdat 'computerÈ for just that reason. It argues with you. I do my own thing. KA24DE piston dish is, I believe 9cc, so if it isn't, then this is all for nought. Z22 crank/rods, 89mm bore, 47cc DE pistons, 41cc closed chamber head.... 9.52 compression Why DE pistons??? The above with...

Why not on the half shafts? Or the stubs on the H-160.

Re: Ignition coil

Get an EI coil. They don't wear out from age. If it's still working... it's working. Just paint it red or yellow. I'm a strong believer in the stock matched equipment.

Re: Will a 77 200sx steering wheel swap to A10?

I believe the splines are the same. The fit may not be exact. For example I has a zx wheel on my 620. Had to extend the roll pins that cancel the turn signal and bend the brass contact up to touch the ring so the horn would work. There was a half inch gap between the bottom of the wheel and the clam...

Re: 280ZX Brake calipers sourcing problems

If you change your brake fluid (what every 3-5 years) before it contaminates they should easily be rebuildable. Rebuilt 4 piston Toyota calipers for my 620. Easy and cheap.

Re: WTB: 720 FS5W71B external shifting components.

http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/56IAAOSwDlBTwarZ/s-l300.jpg This looks the same as my 4 speed. Any idea where to get these bits? 32855-H1010 for the two side bushings 32861-N4200 for the bottom cup. If you have a 71B 4 or 5 speed or even the S10 dogleg, they are the same. Some later 71Bs used on the ...

Re: WTB: 720 FS5W71B external shifting components.

The pin in the striking rod guide only allows the striking rod to rotate L&R through the neutral gate while preventing the rod from moving forward and back when shifting in and out of gears. Replacing either or both won't shorten the shift throw. If you have a lot of shifter play, replace the tw...

Re: Brakes questions

You don't need a bias adjuster. Or simply put, once adjusted for maximum rear braking to complement the fronts, you don't need to adjust it again. I suppose if you filled the trunk with groceries you could turn the backs up slightly because of the added traction or reduce it as the gas tank empties,...
