Re: LZ20 engine build

I'm thinking of building a test running stand though, a square frame would be ideal for connecting the back half for a box, then mounting a radiator in the front, coil, etc. Would only be 2 feet square or so. Although I really don't want to build any more motors currently. Just want all my shit to r...

Re: LZ20 engine build

You just gave me a great idea of cutting off a front frame section off a pickup and making an engine running stand out of it Wayno! ;)

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

If I could remove my strut tower, it would work perfectly. ;) Got my piece of aluminum plate. 1/2" thick ought to do the trick, no more booster! Though I may still disassemble one for shits and giggles.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Wayno, have you ever re-clocked a booster? I may disassemble the extra Maxima booster I have to see if it's possible. I'm only worried about re-sealing once it's apart. Much less, not sure if I have the tools to un-crimp it.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yep, that sounds right, they're just all going to be 7/8 bore instead of the 3/4 bore I wanted. With a booster it'll work great. Without a booster it's just going to be harder pedal than usual, but it will stop just fine depending on how strong your foot is.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

79 is a 7/8s, lol. I looked in my spare parts bin, have a brand new reman there I probably got 8 years ago. Still in the box. Same as the 280z one I have currently. Only the early 620s have the 3/4 master, no power brakes. I'm just going to use the 7/8s. Rose and I have strong legs, we're not scared...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

It looks like the wagon is not getting a brake booster due to the stud length issues. I'm thinking it's going to be set up like the Z car. 7/8 regular master cylinder mounted on a big plate. Annoyingly, the only similar master cylinder I can get is for '74 620s, which is the same master, but a 3/4 b...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So this is when I'm glad I'm older and possibly wiser. I got back from dinner, felt much better after eating. I was just getting ready to cut into the firewall, when I realized a problem. The mounting studs for the 280z booster are about 1 1/4" long, whereas the Maxima (to get through that big ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I lied, it's not double firewall, the brake pedal assembly has a separate hole and there's 3/4 inch of insulation in between. But getting the pedal set out is a giant pain. I remember it from installing when I swapped to 5 speed. So right now I'm thinking either carbide burr or possibly an air nibbl...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Fucking stupid brake booster is offset 1/4" too high for the opening in the firewall. And because it's a luxury car, there's a double firewall unlike older Datsuns. So I'm going to go eat dinner and figure out how I want to modify the opening while making it look decent still.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Dammit, no wonder I can't find a spacer, you stole the one I was going to use!! :D I'm just going down to Sprague. Not enough Datsuns in pull and saves right now, nothing to pick from. Booo.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Good idea Wayno, but I don't see any that are close enough. Most just bolt right to the brake booster. I could make one, but the two hours it will take me to go extract one will be as much time as it will take to make a nice one, plus I don't know the thickness, etc. Think I'm just going to make the...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I have the brake booster and master cylinder and KN air filters. Now the only problem is there's a sandwich adapter piece between the brake booster and master on the zs, and I don't have a Z with one. So it looks like since Pull and Save is bare, it's down to Regy's farm to get one off his parts ...
