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,...

Re: Difference between 610 and 510 rear sub frame

I think the 610 has very slightly wider spacing for the control arms.

Re: WTB 5 speed transmission

The '79 zx is an excellent choice. It's a mid ratio so not too different from your 4 speed and the over drive not much different from the S10 200sx. I have a '79 in my 710 and love it. [quote name="datzenmike" post="1478313" timestamp="1491622108"] Well, if you have a w...

Re: WTB 5 speed transmission

A few things... A five speed will not make you car go faster. Some five speeds will actually make your car take offs sluggish. If you drive mainly in town a five speed rarely gets used and is mostly along for the drive. Hands down the most compatible swap is an S10 five speed. It has identical inter...

Re: Distributor Choice with MSD 6AL

If the cap, rotor and wires are good quality and in good shape the spark has no choice but to jump the spark plug gap. The L20B came with points and EI and both had the slightly larger diameter cap. Get an EI distributor and forget the MSG.

Re: Electric issues - alot of things not working

Headlights, brake lights, horn, interior lamp, 4 way flashers are all items that will work without the ignition on. Headlamps usually have their own fusible link and is powered at all times through the headlamp switch. The others probably are on a section of the fuse box connected to it's own fusibl...
