Re: Just another car I'll never finish.

Looks nice! I hope to be enjoying my wagon before too long as well. Fingers doubly crossed. Got my RB25 bracket for the PS pump yesterday though. It came early! Super stoked, we'll see if it works today.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Lol, thanks! I didn't know you had an RB! I definitely could make a bracket, but I thought about it and said it's going to take me more than $100 worth of effort and time to make it, and this should bolt right up. Annoying it won't come until next Wednesday, but that should be the last piece of the ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I've decided on personal plates for the RB swap. How about MUNIPIT? ;) I swear, just another $100 is the mantra of this project. I really hope it's worth it in the end, because right now I wish I'd just yanked the L apart and built a different head for it. Stay the course, stay the course, that's...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Damn! Bargain shopper! I'd pick one up for that price too! :D I was going to get a big-dog electric, but it can't take saw blade attachments and I need those for doing the thick clusters of napweed in the alley.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I ordered a PS bracket for an RB25 off ebay. $100 but easier than trying to fab something up and wasting tons more time. Have to wait another week with the holiday and all, but should get it by next Wednesday. And then, finally, I'll have a 240sx DE pump on an RB25 bracket which should all bolt r...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Probably would, but those are even rarer than the RB nowadays.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yeah, I thought since the RB20/25 are the same for engine height that I'd be okay. Got a KADE pump today from a fellow off facebook. Its mounting boss is too long for the current RB mount. It came with the bracket, looks like a good quality used pump, no leakage, but it's missing the extension inlet...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I have commercial version. Problem is almost every pump that is correct, isn't correct. I can make some sort of adapter, but I'd rather just get a damn pump that fits so I don't have to mess with stuff. They do have some rebuilts apparently, but they're super expensive and of course I don't have a c...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I've decided I want something easier. Either I'm going to find a 240sx pump for not a million dollars, or maybe I'll go electric power steering. Not sure. Currently I'm wading through NAPA's site to try and find a power steering pump with the right mounting that might work, off something else. Giant...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Seriously! So I rebuilt the pump, put a very small amount of right stuff on the o-rings I was unable to get, tried to keep it out of the holes. On putting back together, it's harder to turn. I did clean out everything so there was no oil on the bushings, however, before I tightened it down, it turne...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ok yeah, fuck that. The Altima pump is buried beneath the intake. Even taking off the wheel and going underneath, you need a lift to get at it, and even that is a pain. So instead, I took a splined VG30 '97 Maxima PS pulley off and I'm going to see if it bolts onto the hardbody KAE power steering pu...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So today I'm heading up to Pull and Save. I have a theory of possibly an Altima PS pump working for the RB. A KA dohc 240sx pump apparently does, but I'm done with spending money on this build. I have almost all the pieces, the rest is junkyard diving to make something work. Beside the AC pump, but ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Checked tonight, leaking from the pump body. Damn. So now I need to find some special o-rings. Looking from what's available, it looks like the sealing rings are different between KA D21/240/R32. They're all o-rings that are round on the American pumps. This one is a funky shaped o-ring. Maybe they ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

:fry: lol I don't see any mess! As soon as I get the exhaust and driveshaft connected, I'm backing her out and doing a massive cleaning.

Definitely will do the seafoam treatment. I had some in the tank already, need to put some more in since I added fuel some months back.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I re-checked the line. It's actually .315 OD. So I used the new mandrel and it worked okay. Still tends to get a non-round crush that gets semi-fixed with the second flaring with the cone. Either way, I'm getting annoyed. Bought the new set, and I've figured out the issue. One, I'm stronger than ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So one of the first things I notice in this set is the metric dies are threaded, and the stem that goes into the pipe for making the flare is considerably larger on the 8mm than on the 5/16. Think I just found my issue. Should go better this second time around.
