Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Found I'll need a new ignition module and a retard device that's boost referenced. Found both from FAST, cheaper than MSD. Still going to be another $400 to get this thing running, but at least I should be able to start tuning after that. Got the wiring harness all set up minus the ignition portion ...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

https://s33.postimg.cc/w9vvjilzj/IMG_7917.jpg So this is the turbo oil pickup tube, rear sump and on the passenger side of the block. Rather interesting. https://s33.postimg.cc/n23n31k4v/wynonablock4.jpg And hey, look at that, there's an oil pickup in the rear that should work! I think anyway. Funn...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Ok, so I'm wiring up the MoTec 1989 period correct version. The problem is the dizzy is CAS on the L28ET. However, I did some digging and while it's serrated tooth for the drive spindle, the regular L28 drive spindle is the same length, etc. So I can use the old style with an old style distributor a...

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.

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.
