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.

Re: Brakes

I had a 7? maybe 8 year old '68 back in the day. I knew how to abuse them but little about what made them work. I don't remember even having a wheel off it. No idea if disc or not. What manual I have (Haynes) shows front drum and disc as a function of date of manufacture. Haynes are printed in the U...

Brakes

It's really a shame there isn't a dedicated brake section here.

Front drum brakes, Who and what years got this? Early '68s? and was it only Canadian models? They are 9" shoes, but are they the same as the preceding 411?

Re: '75-'79 200SX trans

If it has to be an L series engine... or look like one... get a Z24 and put your U67 head on it, (there's more to it than this) but it would (sort of) be an L24B to start with. That's a 20% increase in displacement and 20% easier towards your 250 goal. (which I thing unreasonable) If over 200 cut to...

Re: '75-'79 200SX trans

You have a '77 620 so get a 71B 5 speed for it. It is absolutely DROP IN. No need to change anything but put the speedometer pinion from your 4 speed in it to keep the speedometer accurate. Even the shifter is the same and in the same location. The dogleg is too short so you will need to modify the ...

Re: Suspension and brake questions, I searched

Actually, the ZX springs will work. One of the guys "Vince" who attends the EastCoast 510 meet at Summit Point has stock ZX struts and springs. He had to remove metal around the entry of the strut tower but they fit. Only issue is any caster adjustment you may want to add is very limited....

Re: Suspension and brake questions, I searched

What's wrong with he zx calipers? Was good enough for stopping the much heavier 280zx turbo, it will be total overkill on a 500 pound lighter 510. The 3/4" master may be a little small for the larger calipers and travel almost to the floor to move enough fluid. This will give them a mushy pedal...

Re: How to: Rejuvenate Calipers and Hubs

I guess you could use any black spray on rust paint on the hub. I wouldn't bother as it isn't visible. If you have spoked after market or optional zx rims you could use a contrasting color that makes it stand out. My Maxima calipers have cheap red spray on rust paint. https://i.imgur.com/iu2VvTA.jpg

Re: How to: Rejuvenate Calipers and Hubs

It's the seal closest the center of the vehicle and presses into the back of the hub. The rubber seal lips ride on the stationary spindle and keep dirt/water out and grease in. I got a set for my Maxima struts for $8 or $9 bucks for the pair. If cleaning the inner bearing or replacing it the seal ha...
