Does anybody know who might have this for sale? It appears to be 'unobtainable on Algon'  according to Monty Python. OR does anybody know the thread size so I can have some made??


I guess I should have said 'main shaft' lock nut.

I'd get under the car and look at the slots in the cross member to see if all the adjustment is used up, The right side is still toed out, should be toed in, negative toe is toe out. Search the realm, Dime Dave explains it well.

I think HE said his doctor said this. 116/70 (normal range for a teenage male) is so stupidly impossible I'm embarrassed for them both and those who believe it. 


Not that it matters, when I was 55 I had my blood pressure checked about every four months: and the numbers where;







This was done at work in the clinic. The first numbers where from when we were having lay offs!

I have a relatively high stress job daily. Swill coffee and drink like a fish.

If you box and pressurize the whole carb, you'll still need to increase fuel pressure proportionately to boost.

What Stoff said.


You could probably amass a small stable of L20s for cheap before you could find an L18, at least in this part of the country. Depending on your build level, if you are going to use forged pistons, just have them made to utilize longer rods, Z22 rods I believe?


This still leaves you with a gearbox problem though?

#1394305 Making my own Coilovers for my B210 with ZX struts. Few questions........

If you want to keep the same ride height, but stiffer. Weight the front end, divide by two, and that's the approx. weight on each front tire/spring. Measure spring perch to spring perch, that's ride height. Jack the car up, measure spring perch to spring perch. That's your minimum free length. Calculate the spring rate of the spring currently on the car. Knowing the weight of the corner of the car, you can calculate the compression of the new higher rate spring to achieve the same compression distance to maintain the same ride height, that's where free length and wire diameter and coil diameter come in..
