I've heard good things about both the redline mt90 & the Ac delco friction modified synchromesh. I guess it'll depend on availability.
Thanks, Greg

Thanks, Greg


I got the Spal fans and Spal relay kit from Summit racing. The fuse box I already had for a different project, but you can get them just about anywhere. Amazon, Wayteck wire, Summit Racing.

Thanks for the info abisel, that's something I definitely have to set up. I can use my stock temp plug for the sensor right, just buy a temp sensor & adapt something for it. Too bad they don't have a pig tail or an adaptor for the ka temp sensor.

If the stock KA sensor is a thermoswitch (on/off switch at given temperatures), you can use it to control the fan relay. But what temperatures does it turn on/off?

I thought of using a 280z thremoswitch that mounts in the thermostat housing on my L20, but can't find out the set-point temperatures of the thermoswitch. So I got a radiator hose adapter and the Spal 165/185 thermoswitch (3/8x18 NPT thread) for my application from Summit racing as well. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-2283/overview/

I installed the sensor in the upper radiator hose because that is where the water would be the hottest exiting the engine. Some radiators would already have a 3/8 NPT bung at the top of the radiator where the thermoswitch could be installed. I should have had that bung installed in the Champion radiator when I bought it. It could still be installed however.

I checked into that, looks like going to do something similar to that. I drove & moved around my goon today, I was stoked! Should be driving it soon! I need to set up the el fan situation & put a plastic vent piece/fitting that goes on top of the 5 speed tranny about 2/3rds of the way down. I'm having a hard time locating it. The PO let me know that it was missing, he might of broke it during installation. With out it I guess the tranny'/gear oil could leak out. I went to the Nissan dealer with no luck. He didn't know what to look for or even how to really look it up.
Any info would be real helpful.
Thanks, Greg

The clip, bracket, and breather hose are all called out but not the breather itself.

the trans is in the car so it's hard for me to see exactly where it is. When I bought the car he showed me another trans that was on the ground & pointed & that plastic little piece that's barely sticking up not to far from the shifter.

The car runs but idles real low, I actually have to warm it up to idle. When I unplug the mass flow sensor plug it idle high. I noticed when I got it running that it wouldn't idle until I put the air filter on. When I had my hand over where the air filter goes it idled good..? Right now I have just the exhaust manifold on, no exhaust... Could that make it idle low..?

It's idling good now, I found a couple of vacuum leaks that I couldn't see. :) it's time consuming when you pick up in the middle where the PO left off at.. Knocking it down one thing at a time thanks to this forum & the vast knowledge the people have on here.
