Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Lol, then I'd have to be a hipster and start wearing flatbill hats. Plus, after I finish, I'm going to waste all the lowered Subaru Foresters I see, in my lowered Maxima wagon. :) Because Datsun.

Oh, it will be sexy. And it will lay bigger patches of tire. At lower rpm.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Any of the following responses are acceptable:

1. Holy fuck, that's just what I would do!
2. Whoa. - Keanu Reeves style.
3. That's so awesome I have no response at all. I am dumbfounded by your wizardry.
4. Just sell the wagon and get a lowered AWD Subaru, that's what the cool kids do. :D

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ah ha! CHANGED MY MIND! I got to thinking today. I want the race car to go fast and I don't care what powerplant is in it. And Chevy 5.3 or 350 is 10x cheaper to make power with than an RB of any variety. So considering I have the wagon and the race car both running, just not as well as I'd like, I'...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Why thanks! But now, I'm going to abandon it all. At light load, I either have piston pin rattle or detonation knock. I suspect pin rattle. Probably from the hydraulicing of the motor in #3 after it filled with fuel those 2 times. Either way, I've decided to put an RB in it. If I want to daily drive...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Lol, so I found a way to do it. I'm not an electrical guy, but I knew there was a way. So I dug on the internet and in very short order, found how to make a positive a ground! You just take a relay, and wire one of the switched legs to ground! Booyah! So if I do that, I can run power to the one side...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So now my problem is I have the Ford Powerstroke electric vacuum pump mounted, and it's all ready to make an idle up for the AC, but the Nissan switching valve solenoid I have does not operate in the correct manner for easy wiring. It's normally closed, three ports, one in, two out. At rest the oute...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Put the big cam in Wynona, and after making a drilled bowl drain bolt to attach a clear tube to to verify bowl level while running, it's all good. Oddly, the front bowl sits too high after shut off. I think the residual pressure from the tank backfeeds just a little. Anyway, it works now. Only probl...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Found a crack in the balance tube where one of the 1/4 pipe fittings was. Had it welded up, no more leaks. Haven't had a chance to adjust valves yet, but after starting just now and letting warm, bad noises are gone it seems and the motor seems happy. Think I dodged a bullet. Which means the L28 tur...

Re: 74 260Z for sale

Lol, well it's just sitting now. I really would hate to loose money and give it to pull and save, but damn, no one is coming through and I have too many projects as is. It'll sit for a while longer before that option happens.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

The only problem I see is #6 being 208, whereas number 3 is 190 (188 third time around) I do know I bottle brushed 6 more because that was the piston that killed itself and left a huge scratch down the bore. That's 20 psi difference between the worst and best, which is a bit high. I'll readjust the ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

First go round 190 193 193 198 200 208 Second go round 200 190 190 198 200 208 I think the loud noises I hear on cold start up is either piston slap, or detonation knock, maybe due to the leak I found in the balance tube I need to fix, but also the jets seem to lean now that the pcv issue is resolve...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Well not good on initial start up after work today. Makes a noise. Kinda like a rod bearing possibly. Going to compression test next. I'm really hoping the motor isn't coming out yet again, but it may be.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I made it almost all the way home without mishap. Then the AF ratios started going super lean coming down the hill into Spokane. 18-20:1 At the end of the off ramp, she was idling on her own, but pissed off around 17-18:1 ratio. So I limped her home because I could floor it and get 12:1, then put...

Re: Cantbe canby 2018

Made it back to Spokane, just in time to find a giant vacuum leak. Started hitting 18 and 20:1 on decel going down hill. Came to the off ramp at the bottom and had a huge vacuum leak squeal. I think it's the same one I've been chasing. Don't know where it is yet, but pinched off the top breather to ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

And none of the air filter socks worked with the air horns. Started doing some research, found you want about 1.5" from the air horn lip otherwise it sucks in the filter element. As found after I worked so hard to install air horns and then took for a test drive and nothing past 4500. Fuuuuuuuck. So...
