Re: 810 RB Swap...second attempt...

Nice pilot bearing pull! As for the transmission, get or make or have someone make an adapter plate. 3 out of 4 is not good on an RB, that will be a problem very quickly. Why didn't you want to just use the auto, or did that engine not come with an trans?

Re: 810 RB Swap...second attempt...

Mohammed! I finally see a build thread! :) You know I got my car running on the stock harness, although it has issues, hence my going with the wiring specialties harness. It's not that bad to hook up the various connections, though now that I'm thinking, you got the RB25 and the new version, probabl...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Yay progress! Alright, finally got the wiring all sorted out. It's all permanent, though for some reason the alternator isn't charging now, need to figure out why that is. Possible it just died, but somehow I think it's related to something I did. Has power going in and power to the field. Need to r...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

IT RUNS!! So here's what was going on. Gave it to my electrical guy, he couldn't find anything wrong with the ecu. We decided we had better do a testing session in the garage yesterday to see what was going on. After verifying my wiring was correct (unlike the wagon), Chris found we had no signal to...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

It is, I just hope it works as well as it looks! If I start it up and no issues and no more misses, I'll be quite happy!

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So it turns out you had a great idea! I kept thinking about the sidewell of the trans tunnel, but once I pulled back the carpet there was more room than I thought. I'm thinking I'm going to make a metal panel across the front so no one can ram it with their feet, plus I'd like some ventilation for t...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Theoretically it should be. My wiring guy has it on the bench for tonight, hopefully I'll know something tomorrow and it will be fixable.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Lol, that's assuming she ever rides in it again. It needs a long track record of not breaking before she'll feel comfortable. I tried to tell her it's part of the Datsun life, but you know how one bad experience gets them all gun-shy. The RB should (knock on wood) be completely reliable. I think. I ...

I like the idea. There's not enough room up front, but I'm sure I can make one on the side.

Re: Just another car I'll never finish.

I didn't recognize that motor, had to go back and read. Interesting choice on the 2.4 GM. Not a bad idea at all, and parts are easy to come by. If it was 10 years ago, I would have dogged you in a "purist" state. Lol. Now, I just don't care, even though I still have Nissan products in all mine. If I...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Ok, so here's the latest update. Since I'm having the ECU hopefully fixed for the race car, that left me with the wagon. So I started getting the harness sorted on that. First off, the harness is beautiful. Second off, Wiring Specialties' tech support sucks. I couldn't drag a straight answer out of ...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Damn!! Figured out I probably hurt the Motec while having it still attached to the coil with the FAST Hi6R running. Have my electronics genius buddy attempting to fix the Motec now. Figure I probably burned a chip. Good news is those old school chips are cheap. If it can't be repaired, then it's new...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

So I had a brilliant idea this weekend that I had crossed the grounds for the injectors and ECU. I though, yeah, that's the ticket! And tonight I proceeded to recheck all my connections. Not a darn one was out of place. I did find that as soon as I hit crank, the ECU shut off and the fuel pump relay...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Ok, wired through the GM ignition module, used white trigger wire this time. Good news, I have spark! Bad news, ECU still shuts off very shortly after cranking. Has to be turned on and then off again to operate. I disconnected the signal wire from the ECU coil signal and cranked, ECU doesn't shut of...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

So here's the odd part. I have a red status led, the instructions only allude to 1. It's one with power, blinking during crank. Tach is now working, cranking at 3-400 rpm or so. But as I crank, the ecu shuts off after a half second or so of cranking. Switching on and off turns it back on. With or wi...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

It would, but on the original system. Wrote Motec, had a very nice guy email me back. He suggested trying the tach spout off the Hi6R as the negative coil wire, may work that way. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I'm hopeful that may be all it needs.

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Ok, car is all wired up. Tried to start, no go. The Hi6R Multispark FAST box is getting power and trigger signal, the red LED blinks fast while cranking as it should. The ECU has power, but as soon as I hit the starter switch, it shows nothing. Pretty sure main power for that is coming into the fuse...

Re: Betty White, the poor neglected race car

Alright, have just about everything wired up right now. Have to wire the magnetic trigger, which is already run, so two spades and done, minus getting some wire loom. Then have to run a new vacuum line to the Motec ECU. Last bit is I need to make a 1/8 pipe tap so I can screw in the air temperature ...
