#1474668 Square intake port vs. round intake port: when did it change?

Posted by datzenmike on Yesterday, 07:49 PM

Z24 heads only have square intakes. A Z24 head can be identified by the fuel pump opening not being machined out. Just like the top head in my picture.

 

It's possible that someone may have swapped a Z22 head on but if a Z24 head it will have square intake ports and should have a square intake to match.




#1474598 Square intake port vs. round intake port: when did it change?

Posted by datzenmike on Yesterday, 04:50 PM

Changed when the Z24 came out October '82 or a few months into the '84 model year to replace the Z22. It's strictly found only on the Z24 although the head and the intake will work just as well on a Z20 or Z22. You can interchange the round and square port intakes but....

Top is one of my Z24 heads. Below is a Z20/Z22 head.

Happiness is relative.

 

My Datsun is of the road till I fix the brakes.... boooo

My Veyron is off the road till the $20,000 ceramic brakes are replaced.... booo

 

See? same thing exactly. The rich are no happier than the poor they are just unhappier/happier over different things.




#1474514 L16 clutch upgrade.

Posted by datzenmike on Yesterday, 10:35 AM

Roadster clutch is a common L16 upgrade. Its thicker pressure plate adds clamping force.

 
Pretty sure the Nissan Roadster is NLA and has been for years. This one http://http://www.da...rts.com/Clutch
 

 

<LOOKY HERE -NOS Daikin NSC - 581 NLA Heavy duty 600 kilogram Clutch Pressure plate NO longer in Production, but we have a few on hand!

Yes we verified the clamping force/ load test. Exedy's design department dug out the blueprint and we have it. You wipe off the Dust. A great, less expensive, alternative to the Nissan kits with a great reputation. Comes with Japanese disc, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing & clutch dowels. Use for any 1600 or 2000. If it don't say NSC-581 it ain't heavy duty!

There were more...




#1474272 280zx shifter

Posted by datzenmike on 25 March 2017 - 09:29 AM

Any 620 after '74

Any 810 or Maxima to '84

Any 280z (or zx)

Any S10 200sx

Any '8-'83 S110 200sx Probably the S12  to '86.5 but look like bottom picture.

Any 720 through '82? chrome.

Later 720 will also fit but look like bottom picture.

 

Truck shifters are probably the longest because of seat height, cars tend to be shorter. All will work or can be shortened and they can be bent for better fit.

 

620 top then probably S110 and 720 bottom.

The two lower ones are two part with rubber Oreo center to reduce vibration. The bottom one can be put in 180 to move shifter away from bench seat. So many shifters so little time.

If you are not comfortable with the following or feel you can't do it safely then don't. I've done this many times on carbureted engines to clean out carbon.

 

 

You can do the same. Tune up in a bottle.

 

Get a full plastic water bottle.

Get engine hot as you can. Take for a drive. Or block off the rad with cardboard.

Take air filter top off.

Rev it up well, and begin pouring a steady stream of water into the open carb. I did NOT say pour a cup full in. Dribble it in from a bottle.

 

What will happen is the engine will try to slow and begin to stall, so reduce the amount of water dribbling in or rev higher. At some point you may find you are full throttle and you can control the revs by how much water you dribble in.

 

Expect to have clouds of steam coming out the tail pipe. Don't do this on a nice clean paved driveway.

 

Check the engine temp gauge and you'll also find that it has dropped well below normal very quickly as water absorbs heat as it is turned into steam.

 

Let engine idle and warm up again and repeat as necessary.

 

What happens is the very hot carbon and hardened combustion deposits on piston tops and valves are suddenly cooled and shrink. They crack and flake off and go out the exhaust valve. You may find a spray of carbon and crap on the ground under the tail pipe. You are basically cleaning your engine with steam at well above 212F. Just like a blown head gasket. The guy who showed me unbolted his headers and it was impressive the spray of crap that came out.

 

 

 

I toyed with the idea of putting my windshield washer hose into the carb throat and going for a drive. Take it to 4-5K in third and hit the spray button. Never tried it but should..

That's it? ... alternative facts? Talk about funny and desperate.

It hurts when someone points out your health system faults and how badly your system has let the most vulnerable of it's citizens down. Richest country in the world can't look after it's citizens but could do without a few B-1 bombers and fix this. Nothing you have said is constructive... it's 'woe is me' and 'business as usual'. It needs to be torn down completely and re-thought. People are getting fat and rich on other people's troubles.




#1474141 Brake Issues....Part II: Keep Getting Air From Front Calipers

Posted by datzenmike on 24 March 2017 - 06:21 PM

Did you bench bleed the master?

 

Are the struts swapped L for R? Are the calipers to the front of the wheels or to the rear like the calipers they replace?
