Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yeah, but I really think the whole thing should be replaced. Plus it would look a hell of a lot cleaner and eliminate my mess of shit wiring from everything else. I really don't like wiring. Plus, just put the z car up for sale. Hopefully can recoup enough out of that to offset finishing the wagon.

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Full circle, see add in classifieds. :( Sad, but Betty White needs to run and unless I win the lottery I don't play tomorrow, not enough time and money for both the wagon and the z. 1975 280z, ex-chump car with roll cage and log book. Has '83 280zx L28 turbo engine, stock. New timing chain and gaske...

1975 Datsun 280z race car for sale

Yep, the time has come. I can't finish both the wagon and the z car due to time and money, so I've made my decision. Wynona is staying, the Z has to go. Sucks. I really like the car, but like the 510, I haven't worked on it in almost 3 years and I want the wagon for a daily. Sooooo, there we go. 197...

Re: Jacob's goon build

How about threading the block and then just running a bolt from the back of the transmission into it?

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Okay ladies and germs, here we go! Revelations! https://youtu.be/09ECylbeFBc After this I did a compression check to make sure I'm okay spending yet more money on this build. (Don't do a Japanese engine swap from a 90's era vehicle if you don't want to spend money. I'm about 5-6k into it, though tha...

Re: Gracie II the D21

Ah, they're not that bad. But thanks! The biggest pain is getting bearings for them, as you can see they're very odd cage bearings. I still have a b210 box I never put back together that was supposed to be for the 510. Probably ought to do that. I'm sure I could get some money for that with the Jay ...

Re: Gracie II the D21

Oh yeah, did the hardbody steering box a few weekends back, and all the steering parts except the p/s pump, it still works. The threads on the reman box were boogered, so I removed the nose cone and swapped it for the original one. Only thing I didn't do is replace the seal, which you have to do wit...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I have approximately 8 ounces of Marvel Mystery Oil in the tank, and a half can of Seafoam. Engine starts up and runs just fine, but as it gets warm, it starts developing a lumpy idle. Responds decently when throttle is actuated. I am worried about the lope however. I know the injectors were sticky ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ok, so I've had the engine warmed up two times now. It has a lopier idle than I would like, although the second time seemed better. I also put a ton of Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas tank and some in the crank case to try and alleviate any sludge build up in the fuel system and piston rings. I suppos...

Re: Adam's annoying ass green 620

I just went and stalked on FB, yep, Feb. I seem to remember hearing from someone way back when drugs may have been an issue? Sucks. Lots of people screaming for refunds. Never good to see a Datsun guy go down the flake path.

Re: Adam's annoying ass green 620

I don't understand why people don't get paperwork. Devil's in the details. I sold a hardbody (reported it sold even) and two years later got a parking ticket from Moscow PD. Big pain in the ass, called down there, asked what color hardbody it was and figured it out. New owner got a hold of me and I ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Not at all man, I'm happy for all the help I've gotten. Just wish I would have re-checked that wiring diagram when I put the MAF plug back together, lol.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Thanks guys, I'm super happy. Wish I hadn't screwed it up in the first place, but oh well! ;) Also, a good note. If you do the Nissan Quest alternator mod, the connector at the back fits right in, but it's pinned opposite the regular alternator. You have to de-pin that two prong gray oval and switch...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Thanks! It doesn't sound the best, doesn't pick up as quick as I'd like, but I also only have a foot of pipe after the turbo, so it's completely open. I also figure there isn't much down low on the boosted 2 liters. Hopefully after I get the exhaust system in and a few of the myriad of things things...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ok, so the moral of the story is look at the last thing you touched and find out what you did wrong. So the MAF connector that was crushed when I got the engine was causing the problem. I re-wired it and apparently did it incorrectly. There are two white/black wires on that connector, pretty sure I ...

Unfortunately, this is what I have. https://wiki.r31skylineclub.com/images/9/9b/RB20_ECU_Pinouts.jpg I have the engine FSM for the RB, but it doesn't include wiring diagrams. I have basic wiring diagrams in the engine manual, but not the old spaghetti line pullouts like in the '83 FSM I have. Just b...
