You might have pressed it on backwards.

#1528045 Mazda rx7 rear end

Posted by Doctor510 on 09 November 2017 - 08:20 AM

A guy here in New Mexico was selling a Mazda rx7 rear end on craigslist in which he stated he was going to install on his roadster. Has this been done before? Would this work on a 620? What benefits would we gain as I own a 79 620 kc. Also, just a question which doesn’t relate to this subject. When switching manifolds, where can a Weber 32/36 carb gasket be bought?

That is not the angle that it will be riding at.  Full droop "A" arms are just that. see what they look like with the wheels on the ground.

If you take the Valve Cover off it's 100% easier if you do.

#1525844 low oil pressure at start

Posted by Doctor510 on 27 October 2017 - 06:23 PM

The only thing I've been told is get a ka oil pump, More volume and they are suppose to fit the L block....
Hopefully someone will verify that statement

Verified, same as the 280ZXT, high volume pump. Tray changing the oil & filter first, pretty normal situation.  I have both the idiot light and a mechanical gauge.

Where in Washington are you?

Are 210 head lash pads the same as U67 head lash pads?


#1511295 Electronic Distributor Upgrade - Low RPM/Load Misfires

Posted by Doctor510 on 19 August 2017 - 09:04 AM

Was the rebuild of the SUs before or at the same time as the dizzy swap?

Also what motor?
The Ngk 4006 are br5es plugs.... is that recommended for the motor?
Maybe those are too hot of a plug?

Might be worth swapping to the new set of plugs and seeing if anything changes...

Wrong plugs B6ES 11  or BP6ES 11  Gapped at .040" - .0430  Use the proper coil WITHOUT a ballast resister

#1508242 Braided Steel Clutch Line

Posted by Doctor510 on 05 August 2017 - 01:36 PM

Back in 2010 there was a thread  in which Quick510 suggested an Ebay link  [ http://www.ebay.com/...b94b#shpCntId ]  that I just followed for a line from Clutch Master cylinder to slave cylinder. It is for a 240sx, but it seems that Ratsun members have successfully used them.


I am trying to avoid the whole steel tubing cut flare, etc. The link is for First1Racing out of China and it is for a 52" braided steel flexible line for $35 OBO w/free shipping. If anyone has used these, is this the standard thread on either end for stock 510 Master and Slave cylinders?

Any issues?

That junction between short rubber slave hose and steel hose back to Master is giving me grief!

#1505415 Datsun 620 ignition switch

Posted by Doctor510 on 24 July 2017 - 07:55 AM

Does anyone know anything about the aftermarket ignition switches that have the steering wheel lock seen online? Just curious if it plugs right in or if anyone has had any issues. Thanks


Unless yours looks like this, it will not work in a 620.

#1502584 Help! Will a blown radiator hose cause.....

Posted by Doctor510 on 11 July 2017 - 01:11 PM

I blew a radiator hose on the way home and with it came a lose of power. Engine tempg was not maxed out but was about 3/4 the way up the gauge. Before the radio hose went I noticed a Loud "clicking" while under load. Now I'm wondering if I could of had a blown head gasket.


So my question is could the overheating engine cause a blown head gasket.

In short, YES!
