Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

The shifter plate looks like a 240, but the hole is in the middle, not offset to the rear much. I'll take more pictures tomorrow. Got the engine out of Wynona tonight. Also put some Marvel Mystery Oil down the bores of the RB to see if I could free up the rings after the first compression readings t...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Alright, had a little time today to play with the wagon. Have the radiator out, p/s pump draining, all major electrical disconnected in the engine bay. Took off the shifter, and as soon as I get a little more time, maybe tomorrow or something, need to get under the car and remove the driveshaft and ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Put some oil in the RB tonight and cranked her over. They shipped it dry, should have figured. Nothing but a little black icky. The compression test was done without any oil, but there should be plenty of residual left and with no plugs in, I'm sure it's fine. Very little stress on the engine at tha...

HRH garage sale

Ok, it's that time. I have horded away stuff for a long time and I need to clear out some room. I'm not putting an ad on craigslist because I don't want to deal with skeevy people rolling by the house. Trying to get enough room to fit the new motor for the wagon and have more room to work. That said...

Re: Just another car I'll never finish.

Sweet wagon! I miss my 510 wagon. I love my Maxima wagon, but the 510 was super sweet, and a lot lighter. Plus if I had it to do over again, I'd do everything different. ;) Older and wiser.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I hope to have the motor in before winter. I'd like to put this project to bed by the time the snow flies. So yep, should be ready by next Canby I'm thinking.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Lol, wish I were that good! Hopefully by next Canby. I'd also like to yank the diff again and put one of those 2 way block LSDs in it. Not the greatest, but my Datsun guru ran one and said it was effective enough to not be a one tire fryer.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

And to top it off, the steel wheels I got for the wagon are massively out of balance. I suspect that's why they were circle track made to order. They figure you're going to ruin them in pretty quick order. Decided to order a set of wheels since I'm splurging. And while I could go with something supe...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So I have a 1400 hp turbo LS ready to go in the wagon....... :fry: No, not really. But I spent quite literally all day going back and forth between options for engines for the wagon, or selling the wagon and buying a newer wagon like a 2000 Nissan Stagea RS Four. In the end, I like what I have and i...

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...

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.
