1 inch brake master cylinder installation question

I was told by some Datsuners that I could improve my braking by installing a 1 inch brake master cylinder. I purchased one through datsuns.com? Doing some more online reading, I also read that I might experience a hard pedal with a 1 inch MC. I do not believe I have any room for a brake booster with...

Re: Datsun Powerland 2022 June 11-12 Salem OR.

Thanks for the notice.
I went last year and it was well worth it. Had a good time and learned a lot.

Re: WTS 1968 510 2 door for sale,Massachusetts

Correct me if I'm wrong but how could you be committed to purchase a car through Bat? Aren't they just a middle man? a way to hook up sellers and buyers? Is their a legal document that you agree to that commits you to purchase a car when you bid at Bat? Sure you would pay bat the fee, but if you dec...

Anybody get flooded out?

Anybody get flooded out in BC? Noticed the lower Okanagan river, south of Omak Washington was very muddy and had been higher than on the day we drove it on November 20th. The storm must have also dumped farther east, but did not get much media coverage. The amount of cars lost must be staggering, ho...

Fuel tank float sending unit wiring question.

I have a gas tank fuel float that I took from a cheap aluminum gas tank that I recently purchased. The new tank is basically the same as my custom (cheap aluminum) gas tank that is in the car now, which never had a fuel float. So I took the fuel float from the new tank and installed it in the old ta...

Re: What 8 inch front springs do others use?

If I get adjustable front control arms,

do I also need adjustable tension bars (control tie rod/bar)? CX racing kit for $437.75
Or Techno Tuning GTX2 Front control arms and TC rods for $595.

Do I also need adjustable camber plates? DP racing for $305.

Are there other options for less $$?
Thanks.

Re: What 8 inch front springs do others use?

Thanks bertvorgon! I installed 200 lb springs that I received today. Had to raise the adjustment nut 1-1/2 inches (it was right on the bottom with the 380 lb springs) to get back to what height the front end was before. Took it out for a test drive and felt good, did not hit the factory bumpstops. T...

Re: What 8 inch front springs do others use?

This is a great education for me. Yes it's a wagon and the rear axle is a 4 link setup, which I will be questioning in a subsequent suspension topic. I do have a front sway bar. The amount of the "shock" (are they also referred to as a damper, or strut insert?) piston shaft that is exposed...

Re: What 8 inch front springs do others use?

Thanks for the tip about the markings on the springs, they were facing in, so I did not see them. The springs are Eibach, Ground Control, 90010,gc200.64.67. Looks like they are 2.5 inches in Dia, 380 lbs. 5 coils? The springs are sitting on the adjustable nut which sets on the collar at the very bot...

What 8 inch front springs do others use?

I'm not enjoying the very stiff front springs that came with the car. Asking around at Canby, one fellow said 200 lb springs would give me a better ride. The existing springs are 8 inches long, 2-1/2 inch ID and 3-1/2 inch OD. I believe that the struts are 280zx?? Not sure how to identify. Looking f...

Re: 2018 Canby show, June 8,9&10th, Clackamas county fairgrounds

We are building a new house here in Chelan, doing all the work ourselves. We poured the foundation a week ago and just today the electrical inspector approved the conduit from the meter to the house, so now I can get on the tractor and backfill the ditch and foundation. Since we are camped out in th...
