Just a little more fine tuning on MegaSquirt, and trying to figure out why my fuel pump keeps cutting off (I think it's the fuse).

I drove mine...
And noticed there's something wrong with it's clutch... It's fluid is BLACK... and it's only 2 months old.
Suppose... Should start changing the clutch fluid every other track session. rather than every three

Mine did that... for some reason i lost continuity to the plug in the ECU so instead of effing with it i just went ahead, bypassed the ECU and made a fuel kill switch.

I pulled the dizzy, radiator, and coil off of my parts 240 and put them on my ka patiently sitting in my s12. It only needs exhaust and she'll be ready to come off the jacks... there's been talk of a side pipe

(Insert thoughts here)

side pipe....eh.

Went to work, ran my road, went and talked to the shop about sponsorship some more, picked up dinner, and came home. Going to try to change the top ka timing chain/tensioner on tuesday and remove the other useless top guide....thank you nissan for making useless stuff i dont need and putting it on my engine for future tossing into the garbage.

changed oil which was long overdue. While changing oil crushed the old oil filter because it decided it wanted to stay on the motor finally got it off and heaved it into the mighty mississippi (yes from vegas I was pissed!) advanced the timing because it was really retarded because iggy and myself didn't know why it was off so much (think it's the wire not reading it right) but the car has more power and is waaaaay smoother up top and down low also boost kicks in in sooner as well. Still need to fix this pesky oil leak problem it is really annoying...

Don't know what this fgt is talking about. ;)

Last night we moved fyneyoungstunna's notch up a hill with man power and the help of said blue SE. Its now in the comfort of a carport at my friends house. The place it will get its heart transplant.

Got the blue one to Cameron's house (slicks12) for complete destruction and parts whoring.

Tore the muffler off my white daily driven SE, it had a break in some of the welds so I said fuck it tired of that one more dumb noise it was making and we ripped it off. SOUNDS AWESOME. Can't believe how awesome it sounds.

Keep fucking with stuff on the white SE (daily) and it keeps going in and out of having problems. Randomly especially when its a) low on gas and/or b) warm it will start to hesitate and sputter when trying to accelerate from a stop. Idle is also getting miss firery. Any ideas? I've checked every plug, every vac line, I've ran seafoam to clean injectors, changed spark plugs, cleaned cap and rotor, cleaned TPS, cleaned MAF, taken apart all connections and filled them with dialectic grease after cleaning them, took off and put on all spark plug wires, and a few other things I can't remember.... still no fucking dice.

Love s12 ownership.

maxpow, have you changed your fuel filter or checked your fuel pressure? Your problems strangely sound fuel related to me as you have given your spark plenty of attention.

I corrected my exhaust today, made the muffler look less retarded and more stock looking.
It was sticking out way past the bumper and out the side, because I was lazy when I put the new muffler on. :lol:

I also resurfaced the flange mating surfaces, so it's not leaking like crazy either.
I didn't get around to putting in the cutout though

Did fuel filter fuel pressure seems fine. Its not a hot/cold issue it started doing it cold too. It now does it probably  4/5 times I drive the car. All the variables are different all the time still fucks up. Full tank/half tank. No difference.

Maf or ecu?

Worked on the squirl a lot today with Colonel Gustard & cameron. Won't start think something is wrong with the starter and how its hooked up, and possibly some other issues. Sucks. Alot of work and no run, could be anything really.

you will be fine i ran mine for a year super lean 1000deg+ exhaust temps shooting fireballs onlything that happened was i replaced the exhaust manifold every six months and finally the front pipe welds broke and the exhaust fell off the car i finally called it quits and swapped.

oh i even ran the canyons with virtiualy no coolant. no problems. theyre stout motors just pretty gutless.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Jay on 10:39:44 PM / 09-Nov-10
They're only stout because they're so gutless they don't have the power to break themselves.
the 20e is a reliable motor. It's just a terrible motor at the same time. I hate it with the flaming passion of a quadrillion suns.

Oh, and I put a little air in my tire today... That was what I did to my S12

Pulled a motor and started stripping down a parts car the other day.  Finished it off by taking out the last parts, like the front subframe all the way down to the gas tank.  Tomorrow he takes the walk down the green mile...   You're my boy Blue!

Went to the yard, threw 2 starters over the fence, get out of the yard and fucking security is snatching them up. I forgot to explain to my love that she needed to grab them as soon as they soared over the fence, the guy just cruised up and snatched them about 10 seconds before I could get there. Sucks. Had to shell out $80 for a reman at pepboys. Atleast now I have lifetime warranty.


Hope this makes the fucker start...


In other news, my attempts to get a helmet have also gone south they didn't have my size I guess and they fucked up so now they are offering a better helmet for 125 as opposed to the 80 I paid for a pooper before. I have about 5 days to get my car running, get this fucking helmet, and get my ass up to buttonwillow. NEED TO GET TO THIS TRACK EVENT GODDAMIT!

Thought about dying the interior instead of buying new stuff. Then daydreamed about the new rims and tires for my car, then about having my own garage to work on my s12 and my cherokee :(

my assistant manager wanted to borrow my car to pick up a xmas tree even though he has a truck...i was like...you have a truck though. He thought it would be funny to see a xmas tree on top of my car though....it is actually kind of funny to see a tree on top of a notch.

Btw pushing starting a car at 5am in 40 degree weather is no fun


Starter COIL!









Well guys I woke up at 5:30 am with 3 cops infront of my house, Squirrely drifter tried to go out and have fun on her own, ebrake failed and she rolled into the intersection and hit a gaurdrail right next to my house. I RAN out to her and drove her home in my boxers... goddamn carlsbad police guy was like "I was gonna have it towed, but since he's here" then he shined a light in my face and stated: "OH I have talked to you a few times before"


My mom immediately asked what "the heck does that mean" and I really couldn't explain it. She knows I talk shit to all the pigs in this town and they know me pretty well :(


Gotta make sure that doesn't happen again though, the piggies said someone coming around the turn at that intersection almost hit it.

I picked the ratsun sticker up when i was at the canby oregon datsun meet in 2010. I caravanned down there with a 510 wagon and a 2 door 510. The owner of the 2 door is the guy i bought my hoshinos from...he was running them on the 510 for awhile...I would always drool all over the place when i would see the 510 in town...which wasnt very often...just often enough for me to freak out.

I know it's not a S12, but I drove my S30 home last night, after having not really ran much at all in the last 8 months or more. I'd started a head swap and you know how one thing leads to another. The most importing fact though, is that she's home and safe, and she made it under her own power.

Mine died rather mysteriously two days ago, had it towed home and went inside to confer with the Barley gods. 

Next day, started up but had rude stumble off-idle.  I say to myself...  Self, that seems like an ignition problem, first candidate TPS or coil amp, etc...  Could have been fuel too... Replaced the TPS with known good unit and then it would not start at all, again.  Dark was once upon me and the mercury was unwilling to rise into a comfortable range, so...

This morning I go out and start'er up, first try. Took it for a drive, nothing went wrong, cept'n fer the intermittent miss that has been going on for weeks.  Lots of power no stumble and so I am just happy it is running again. 

Clock is ticking... for now.

...and without an adjustable rear cross member on a suspension lowered more than two inches, there is no way to restore camber back where it belongs.  Excessive camber effectively causes the toe to increase, scrubbing off the inside of the tire.

<POSTED THIS IN WRONG THREAD EARLIER>


I have a great story:



To make this on topic, yesterday I delivered a r154 trans off a 88 turbo supra with 7mgte using my favorite work truck, the Squirrely Drifter.


So the day prior (Thursday) me and Colonel Gustard had been working on removing the trans from this supra, then some douche comes up to us on Friday morning, goes under the car as soon as we get all the bolts off, takes the trans and tries to book it.

I lept under the car bear hugged the trans and he just dragged my ass out and tried to get physical with me. I am only 115 lbs and 5'8" so I just tried to do everything I could to make it so he couldn't get the trans to the register. Then I had Gustard get security and security backed me.... yard manager backed me up too.

So the douches go sit outside my car to talk shit when I get outside of the yard, so I was like "yeah this is my car, you guys wanna smoke a bowl?" they were like "no thanks, nice labor" and I got out and laid a nice drift down around the parking lot in defiance. Fucking assholes.


Bought the trans for 161, sold it for 300 delivered about 25 miles away, shared the moneiz with Colonel Gustard to stimulate his economy as well. Not that much profit in my business right now but goddamn is it an adventure spending all these hours going to and from junkyards. Got another R154 to pull in Oceanside... hope its still there. Need that bitch.



...and without an adjustable rear cross member on a suspension lowered more than two inches, there is no way to restore camber back where it belongs.  Excessive camber effectively causes the toe to increase, scrubbing off the inside of the tire.


Yes.

Ran mode I, II and III diagnostics on the ECU.  It would seem that my CHTS is bad.  Did not do a mode V check yet, ran out of time...

Still have an annoying intermittent misfire at all RPM and a very intermittent misfire at idle that will almost kill engine.

lifted the rear of my black car to try to figure out the noise I have coming from the rear whil on jack stands started it and put it in first to see what the wheels do turns out when I accelerate and let off with out touching the brakes the driverside rear stops completely and then struggles to start moving again of course this is only in the air because the force of the motion of the car keeps the wheel from sticking......

Put in some vents on the cowling to stop shit from getting down in there, had to scoop out a hand full or to of wet shit first... Then went to adjust my timing to find out my battery was dead. Biked home then when shopping, was going to buy a new battery but i found out that the battery in my jeep does not have enough cold cranking amps, battery is less then a year old, so i am buying a new one for my jeep and throwing this one in my car, Just waiting to see if the batteries go on sale at Canadian tire on friday ;),

Then crimp in the new wires for the new tail light, adjust timing. Might get new msd blaster coils or something tomorrow...

Just drove it to work and back, like everyday.

Haven't broke down and orderd a studpid pricy CLSD and rebuild parts for the diff. I will, once I come to terms with parting with the money and the fact that a CLSD is going to cost more than what I paid for the car initially.

Also been thinking about taking it for rocker/body resto. It's going to be an expensive car to keep this year.

It's still truking along though. About 4" of snow out there - I'm not to worried though; 200lbs of sand in the trunk and the VLSD still works.

Post by: JonB on 10:29:40 AM / 22-Jan-11
FOund that I'm getting really bad gas milage.

I used about 4-5 gallons this week. I have my idle turned up high so it's sure to run if I use the remote starter; if it stalls - it floods, then I have to run out and start it myself. I have 200lbs in the trunk and have been giving loosers a ride to and from work because they wont buy a car or lost their liscences - some of them are fat to - like an 1/8ton +; that's disgusting for a human in my opinion, not to mention I work with these guys, and yes they consume alot of food, don't move very fast, and tire quickly; like 70's Cadillacs of humans I guess. On top of that there's 6 inches of snow now, the town plowed but only salted some spots. We had freezing rain earlier in the week; which makes a snow covered road feel like dry tarmac by compairison. Right now it's 4; yes 4 degrees, It was 0 earlier this morning. So warmup times are long and I don't think I've seen third gear all week beacause of poor traction.

End result is like $15 in gas spent in one week. Car gets me to work though this time of year though - 200s probably rule as far as rwds go in the snow. It goes about as good and it turns and stops on the ice; you sorta persuade it's direction and speed, you don't actually control it.

It's exciting though. I get a white knuckle adrenalin rush with my coffee in the AM.

need a goddamn countershaft bearing replacement... probably too late. Trans is done, need trans and all kinds of goodies but no monies!!!!


Gonna have to keep driving it like this... cause I'm poor, as you all know that lady crippled the weebly wobbler, and I have parts orders to fill/ship.

Just sayin, real sloppy work on the fitment and crude angular joggle with big gap to weld closed...

Was this a home made piece?  I sure would have told them to do it again. 

But if he did not pay much and the motor is a POS then all is good...  I guess.

ive got mine parked since the meet, might drive it to school this week with the horrible and loud ass grinding noise from the trans and the whine from the diff just for the week, until i get an A trans for Andrew2 on saturday and ill be getting an SE trans, no more 3.5k at 70mph anymore yay

Mine's making noise to. I don't know what it is. My tactic for solving it can only be described as trying to shoot a toad in total darkness with a shot gun by listening for the croaks and firing.

I bought a Z31 diff and shafts about a week ago.

I sprung for this today;http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270698965680

I hope it works. I know I cheaped out by getting used, but my budget is already shot. Hopefully rebuild kits are reasonable if I need one - I hope I don't need one.

Post by: Colonel Gustard on 09:23:26 PM / 30-Jan-11
hopefully it works out for ya, im gonna save up and look for a 3.54 diff off a turbo 84-86 z31, im not worried about torque, i need gas mileage
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: JonB on 09:48:08 PM / 30-Jan-11
I got a 3.90 Z diff. It's off by a whopping 6mph at 60 and it should be like 100 more rpm to let the clutch out. Not really a major difference.

I'm still hoping my 4.11 set is good eventhough I suspect I'll like the 3.90 better. My car does like 15 in first before the motor starts screaming with revs, and 3K+ to go 65mph isn't to good. But how much stress is an in accuarte speedo worth - ya know.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Colonel Gustard on 09:50:13 PM / 30-Jan-11
i just want better gas mileage, i dont like paying for gas all the time, thats why i want a 3.54 diff with a z31 87-89 A trans, which has a taller 5th gear, but that tranny is later on.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: JonB on 10:02:22 PM / 30-Jan-11
I hear ya, I want better milage to. I'm not doing to good right now with that. But I managed 31 mpg at a constant 50 mph. I like to think when it warms up I could do that again. With 3.90s maybe I could get 31mpg at 55. I'll still be getting passed by others, but at $3.50 a gallon, they're just going to have to go around me:).

Gas is scheduled to go above 200 a barrel in not too long. So expect $6 or more a gallon in the next couple years according to the BBC.


Just been driving my car alot still, its waiting on a new trans and new gearing for the rear end. Smoked in it a few times... that's about it so far. Probably going to use it to take me to the post office to send out parts. ;)

sorry, i meant 3.43....i saw one of the gas stations dropped the price of their gas to 3.39 on like saturday...but we havent dropped our prices yet...although, we did get a fuel delivery last night. My plans for the s12 today include picking up something to eat, and going to work. After work I am going to slide two corners and drive it home...at work expect 2 to 5 people to comment on the pokey hanging from my tow hook...just another day.

Dude I won KAAZ diff from e-mailed me and recomended I run Lucas stabilizer. I don't like the sounds of that - making me nervous. I also don't like Lucas stabilizer anyway. It's snake oil as far as I'm concerned.

Every time I go to my local Adavanced auto parts, they have this little Lucas display. The one where they have the gear sets with the little hand cranks. One gear set has regular oil, the other Lucas added. Your supposed to crank the thing and see how much better the lucas adheres. But you can feel the difference in power required between the two. I always ask the guy how much more horsepower that takes to turn the Lucas one. The response is always they don't know.

I hope I don't need a rebuild kit. I'm sucker if I do.

Thought we just had "B"s and "C"s. What cars were "A"s in? I don't know anything about VGs though.

I gave my spare "B" to a guy at work because he wanted the aluminum for a furnace project. I was thinking IDA Pontiac manifold. Since I have this clunking and and he hasn't worked on the furnace for a while. I asked for it back. I told him I could give him another trans case in return. He just needs the aluminum scrap - which I gave him alot. I now need the trans guts. He said "OK", but still has not brought it back.:(

I bet he's using it for a milling project or somthing.

Ever seem like guys with money seem to have better luck and cooler projects? - Bastards!:)

A trans came in the 87-89 turbo z31's, shorter gears 1-3, and 4-5 are taller, better for quick accel on the low end and great gas mileage on the top end

Finally got a reply from KAAZ on a rebuild kit for a diff. Don't know that I need one yet, but $355 and three weeks to get here from japan.

Thinking about writhing the guy who sold me the diff (or is selling because it hasn't arrived yet) and asking if he had to add an LSD frition promoter when he ran Mobil 1. Now that I think of it, your no t supposed to use synthetics in LSDs. Are all Mobile 1s synthetics? Watch it be all jacked up.

Side note, not S12 related; Looks like a found a set of rear knuckles for my Firebird. 70's Trans Am, meet independant rear suspension. Guess I better freshen up my trig; How! Me SohCahToa - pretty bad huh?

KAAZ SBN2655 1.5 way for the S12 R200. I'm just street driving here. I'd like to get a 2-way and drift, but I'm near broke, therefore, I can't break my S12 drifting - sigh.

Wish my Ford 8.8s had pressure rings and that many clutches - Oh well, can't win them all....Wait!- who am I kidding, I wouldn't spend $800 to $1200 for that diff either. The car would be done 2031 with those prices.

Are ya going to figure out how to mount that up or are you going to try and use the guts in your OE pumpkin?  I don't think you can swap to a non-VLSD ring gear since it cups the ring gear...

I  am not 100% positive, so don't let me stop ya. I have not fucked around with any Nissan Diffs, just the German stuff. Good luck.

I  am not 100% positive, so don't let me stop ya. I have not fucked around with any Nissan Diffs, just the German stuff. Good luck.

The center section will go in the long nose, but the ring and pinion won't work; pinion to short - no known solution.  Some rings are 10mm bolts, others 12mm; for the most part - both rings fit both diffs with little mod.

Needs to find 6-bolt VLSD stubs - best bet. I did custom stub, not doing that again. Worked for a while, but when that while is up; not worth the headache of doing it again in my opinion. In my case custom axle bits made for difficult diognosis of problems - lengthy cures.

One can maybe try to mount entire short nose (which sounds like the plan to get the steep gears); longer driveshaft, and rear suspension sub needs supported in another location - short nose doesn't offer the suspension support capability of the long -remeber four big bolts with no bushings on diff; they support the rear suspension. One can try subframe connectors welded to the rear subframe thingy and support it forward, or braces that run from the subframe of the uni-body rear of diff and support it to the back.

Also maybe do a whole later S suspension swap.

so i got off work and i was warming up my car in the parking lot. A stater drove by and pulled someone over just up the street from me. I played on my phone for a second and then went down the road towards the stater right. I went by him pretty slow with my revs down fairly low and he then pulled me over. Walked up to my window and told me he pulled me over for a modified exhaust. He asks for my papers and then asks me if i race. I told him I autox down at the port of ilwaco and he then asks if thats like drifting. I tell him wtf autox is and then he asks if thats why i stripped out my interior. I told him I bought the car with the interior stripped and that the car is 25 years old so the interiors for these cars are all falling apart and rotted out...he then let me go. I think when he realized how old my car was that i could legally get away with whatever fucking exhaust i want on my 25 year old pile of crap.

^ Win. Me and my friend got bitched out by some cop when we were driving His ae86. said we had a modded exhaust and aftermarket fogs and he was going to give us a VI, we both laughed in his face and told him to look at the exhaust (we ripped off the megan racing one on a curb the night before), he grumbled walk to the back of the car and scene this little pipe that i could almost plug with my thumb. I think he was embarrassed and let us go hahaha.

I put a new rad in my jeep today, reorganized and swept my entire garage. Now doing the brakes on the truck, Oil change in the morning, air care on monday. Then my s 12 gets a day of running around with a permit, then into my garage to get the motor swapped and the suspension tweaked to my liking. also take care of any rust i find....

S12- Just checked my fluids. All good except the oil - half quart over about six months. It's the head I believe. I had it done a few years back. Thinking it shoulda had new guides pressed in as opposed to knurled.

Not S12- My uncle has this 72 Cutlass convert 4-speed with 3k miles on it. He wants the foctory olds rally. I got this guy on e-bay auctioning a set. No one bid last time, and thankfully he relisted them. I asked him a few questions and didn't like his response. I just talked to him again, says he got two other guys interested in the wheels and I can have them for $200 which is more than what they didn't sell for last time. I bid on them now -$125. What kinda bull is that? Either he has his "secret buyers" bid, or he pulls the item, or I get them for $125. What a homo.

S12- The kid I won my KAAZ off of sent me a suggested maintainence of the KAAZ and and e-mail. It was a what not to do list on the KAAZ site. Worst is I still don't have my diff. Where the hell is it at? - I'm getting a little angry.

On my way to my buddys house to drop off some drift spares I bought for a steal when all the sudden my battery light and brake light come on. I look at my right and my temp needle is on hot. Fuck!!!! Shut it off and coasted it on and off till I got on the side of the highway on the grass. I pop her open and my belt for my  water pump and alternator is gone I guess something hit it or idk. I changed all my belts in august when I got the car.

So called my bud and he bought me a belt and a beer sittin on the side of the highway, titan, s12,s13,s14. Changing a belt drinking a beer. You gotta love honest friends and all our drifter hearts= epic :)

So recently I had to pull a quick mcguiver fix on the freeway.  I was chugging along at about 75-80 when my gas pedal goes limp.... i had to quickly merge out of traffic, as the car was steadily dying, to diagnose.  What happened was I lazily hadnt cut out clearance underneath the hood for my throttle cable bracket (vg with mk 1 hood is a no no) and it had completely broken it in two.  Luckily some 10mil duct tape/electrical tape was at the ready and has been holding my bracket together (solidly) since lmao just until i can get to the yard...

No, didn't come yet, not comming from outside US. Just two states away. It's giving me a headache.

Says he's sending a Tomie 2-way or something. I never looked in to the rebuild of a Tomie before buying:(. If I get the missing KAAZ 1.5, I'm to return one.

I don't know. I've never lost anything in USPS. First for everything maybe? I have about a month to file, which I hope I don't have to - sounds like he's trying(I hope), and I'm fairly well protected. Hope it all works out. Thanks for the interest. I'll post the outcome.

Sometimes I think of an "S12 lost" thread; 1 notch, 2 adjustable rear bars, 1 door, 4 windsheilds, 1 turbo, and maybe now a CLSD. Probably still not doing bad with my losses:)

Also car stalled on way to work today, hoping it was just out of gas. Also found clutch pedal was way out(not completely disengaging clutch), fluid in resivior there, made adjustment - crappy replacment Advanced auto parts stuff only lasts two/three years - typical.

Mine has been acting up. Sputtered then quit. Wouldn't restart. Went and got a burger, got back in it and it started. Strange. Either fuel or ignition. Difficult to cure, due to it's inconsistancy of failure. Oh well, I'll find it - I hope.

Still figure it's worth keeping and fixing - still the manufactures fail to make a replacement 4cyl rwd coupe that isn't a high priced BMW or Merc.

I would not bother looping the heater hose, it will not help the temp situation all that much.  However, if you are leaking out all your coolant, that will obviously have an adverse affect.

Address the leak first and then replace the core...
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: sam31183 on 10:42:28 AM / 21-Feb-11
Well, I think the coolant puddles are from the heater core, so looping the hoses to the heater core to bypass it does kind of make sense until I can replace the heater core. Just means no heat for awhile. :(

Post Merge: 01:36:48 PM / 21-Feb-11
I checked the radiator earlier and it was low...the overflow wasnt though. I filled up the rad then turned on the car and let it run while i filled up the rad. Once the rad stopped getting low I turned the heater on in the car and I had heat. I drove the car up the street some and then back home and the temp stayed normal. I checked the rad a minute ago and it still has fluid in it. The way the previous owner routed the heater hoses is kind of dumb and it looks like one of the hoses is kinked a bit. This could be causing the heater core maybe to be getting weird pressure maybe. Also the heater core could be on its way out too. I used to check the rad a bit more often and have to put a small amount of fluid in it...but i have just been checking my overflow lately....I think I need to fix how the hoses are routed and just keep an eye on things in case the heater core is toast...
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Wolf Dilworth on 09:52:45 PM / 21-Feb-11
If the heater core is toast and leaks the fluid will seep under your carpet and you will prolly smell coolant too.  If the leak is right at the hose connection then it may drip outside the car but that would prolly not be the core's fault, check the core nipples for damage and always use fresh ho's,  used ho's are always loose and or leaky...

I have no carpet. There is fluid on the floor, doesn't appear to be any outside the cabin. I think its a slow leak, but a new core is on its way.

Sam31183: If it's your KA engine keep an eye on your temp gauge. I blewed a head gasket last year because I didn't bled the heater core properly (and had a bad temp gauge so didn't see the temp raising). I checked after in my 240sx fsm and they say to crack open the upper heater core line until there is no bubble coming out of it when you change the coolant, or the engine will overheat.

Just though I'll share that so you don't blow a hg like I did.

The temp got below the last dash line on my temp gauge...highest I had ever see it go before was half temp. I remember jay telling me he like lets his temp go to like 3/4 before he turns his fans on. Car has no over heating problems since i filled the rad back up. I havent had any power problems or anything and my oil looks fine...so i think my hg is fine...thank god.

My fans are automatic, and have been since the CA20... I took the hood off when I hit the 3/4 mark and forced my fans to stay on by grounding out the relay...
Fan one just over half, fan two at just under 3/4, hood off anything over.

Am I ever worried about overheating the KA though? no... It's tough to blow a headgasket in a KA. REALLY tough... It would take some serious negligence on my part, and then it would be my fault and not the engines

And Edit.
That may be a dusting. But that's what I define as a "Fun dusting". Just enough to have an absolute riot

Drove her hard and put away wet...  First time in a while, I have been babying her lately.  There is a nice little corner (the lower road in the link) I like to take every once in a while, when there are very few cars to bother me.  Highway is 70 mph, Corner is marked 35 mph but I can take it at 60-65 easy, with tire to spare and then there is a nice little S return right after, fun...

I went to work. Another red pos 85 notch came in to get gas. The owner was from Spokane....which is where my notch came from like 2 owners back. The owner was super surprised to see another s12. Also my new back tires came in and I got everything to do an oil change/tune up...
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Maxpow on 01:05:26 AM / 08-Mar-11
Ran into hella problems with the wobbler. Finished the rack install by tightening the one bolt we forgot. Then I swapped new tires on. Got a battery in it, and it just kept dying when I took it off the jumper car.

So...

I ended up wiring up a new battery terminal connector for both the ground side and the power side. Got the new ground it and scrubbed everything up real nice. Old one was covered in green shit and was crusty. Still no go. Started breaking down the super crazy positive side stuff and eventually janked it into working. Got the car running, ran great... drove it up to top of hill, it died.


:(


Had to jump it and let it charge for a few minutes then drove it home... died on the way home... got it home eventually.


I am thinking bad gas, but after only 4 months you'd think the gas would still be kinda ok right? Gonna try some STABILL and other water remover/octane boosters see what happens. :(. Want my car back.

But in a few hours when it's warmer, gonna go see wtf is up with my tension rods. My caster is negative, and I think it's my aftermarket tension rod bushings. They're one-off custom urethane pieces, and I think they're too thick. Pics to come.

Dude, are you are using OEM tension rods with those bushings?  I would strongly recommend against using them unless it is strictly a track car.  

There have been quite a few failures of the rods, due to fatigue cracks from bending.

I went with EE tension rod kit and am very happy with the result.  The kit (less than $30.00) has a metal ball pivot with a UHMW cup and uses the rear OE rubber bushing. works great and not bending.

Looks good gustard!


(make them black.)



Going to have to jump start it, fucker ran out of battery again. :( I just want it to stay on for christ sakes. More than 10 minutes. Might try throwing 5 gallons of 91 to see if that helps her out. Its taking forever to run this gas out of her ;(. Too lazy to start siphoning.


Cleaned the garage last night. Need to do a few other things to prep for an emergency head+intake manifold swap on the Secur-a-notch. Going to put a working ca20 head on it with new gaskets to see if I can't get it running and back home.


When I pulled the pump....it was a nightmare. Rust has covered the entire body of the pump and its just got popping pustules of rust. SO I am putting on the fuel pump from the squirrel. Does mk2>mk1 fuel pump connections work or is it slice and splice time??

Got a lot of good plans for the car coming up.

I'm looking forward to the pics heith!  (It'll for sure be nicer then the attempt in Jay's post)  Haha, really though, if you did that while stumbling over drunk Jay,  you must do some very decent shit sober my friend.  Or whoever did the painting.

Tried to start it with a nearly dead battery.
It didn't start....
And then it did start....
And then, it sputtered out....
and then it wouldn't start again....
Now it's hooked up to the battery charger... So it can start

My alternator doesn't excite right away. So what happened was there wasn't enough juice for the coil to make it up to the 1500 rpm excitation. (Which, no, is not normal, but I don't care)

Heh, your alt does the same thing mine does... Doesn't power up until 2k RPM, and when it does I get 15 volts. :lol:

I just replaced my front main seal... again... because I dicked up a long time ago and scratched the seal bore, and if it's not sealed quite right it leaks bad.
I'm trying a different sealant this time, hopefully it holds.

I put the welded diff back in, because tread is quickly disappearing from the passenger tire again.
And I tried re-re-reshimming it, to figure out what's causing this horrendous noise it makes.

No to avail, of course. I think it's time for a new diff, or new bearings/ring/pinion.

New valve seals, old exhaust side ones were so bad that they were moving up and down with the damn valve. and when i held it in place i was able to slid the valve out without resistance. car should not smoke and have a bit of torque now.

Headed out for some work today, idle has been acting up lately and it came to a head today.  The 12 died sitting at a light, used starter to get me out of traffic. called roadside assistance and then called my client and canceled the work today.

Started with fuel system; checked all the vacuum lines, changed filter, changed the pump.  Still no joy.  Checked the electrical connections, and swapped out the distributor with a known good one, bingo!

Took'er out for a drive and all is well... 

Item worth noting:  The exhaust no longer gargles between shifts, muy bueno.

Got it out today. Cost me an arm and a leg, and she was damn hesitant to start back up after they drained the battery (assholes left the lights on and fucked with my buttons :() but she's been pretty reliable today so far. Hope she makes it to the meet tomorrow.

Damn, I wish I couldve made it before then! Funds have been lacking but tomorrow seems like the day, see you tomorrow night maybe? 

We socal peeps should scrounge up a small meet sunday or something.  Sterling, I need that back window still!!! :)

Finished up on the boost leak testing and found 4  boost leaks 3 semi bad and one HUGE one...

What did you do to test for leaks? You make your own testing rig? This is something I gotta do soon cause I bet I got a leak or 2.

replaced my front studs with 45mm ones to run spacers and finally put my z32 wheels on the front.  When doing it though, I found this:

So I only got 4 of the 5 replaced, hoping the ebay seller will come through...  super weird though!  The knurl wasn't big enough so it just slipped in to the hole.

Semi-finished (with the studs)

I Think i have a good color for the lip kit. we will see how it turns out. I couldnt sleep so i put in the MK2 tail lights, MK1 bumper reverse lights with MK2 reverse lights=SEX+ forgetting that the MK2 center section does not fit without the MK2 metal section above the bumper=slight silly FAIL. But the MK1 center fits, there is just huge getto gaps on the sides of the top

Kinda like that junk where the entire american populace started running flags on their cars after 9/11?  I hate when people do stuff cause it's the "in" thing.

I kinda viewed that as more of, a country attempting to be a little bit more patriotic and united after a tragedy,  even if it was just a little sticker or whatever.  If the Japanese are rekindled in their love for their country after this even more life-ending disaster and everyone starts to use little things like stickers or whatnot to show it,  would you think that was junk and hate it because it's just the "in" thing to do?  Just a thought,  no anger at all man  :nerdystraight:

So the S12 LCA/S13 ball joint is your preferred method over potentially using the S13 LCA'S? Ahhh, do you think those carriers are too shitted up,  or why would I need new ones(I assume the carrier is that dome cap)?  And is your tie rod set up documented anywhere so I can read up on it?  Woooh

I hate when people do stuff cause it's the "in" thing.

I didn't do it cuz it was 'in', I did it because I thought it would look cool and an easy design to get done. It's not like its permanent, I could easily cut out more pieces and paint them up differently, which I'll probably do from time to time to switch it up when I feel like it. to each his own though. no beef.

I didn't do it cuz it was 'in', I did it because I thought it would look cool and an easy design to get done. It's not like its permanent, I could easily cut out more pieces and paint them up differently, which I'll probably do from time to time to switch it up when I feel like it. to each his own though. no beef.

Not talkin about you!  I'm talking about showing support for ones country, but only when something disastrous happens.

^ Hope it holds for you.

I showed the car to my best friend who is down for a visit yesterday. He was jealous of how rust free it is compared to his old 86 ET he blew up. Today i looked at it for a bit, looked at my shot heater. felt sad and got tempted to pull it and start the det swap. drank a beer sitting on the front bumper trying to get into the working mood then went and played GT5.

oh and i drove 76km to chilliwack pick a part turned around to come back back and walked along the center divider at 3am to find the roof wind visor off my friends car that took flight 2 days ago and drove 76km back to my place. was still in one piece so he is happy

Spoke too soon, silly car overheating now :yelling:
When its cool outside, the car stays in the normal range.
Weather gets hot (which it has lately) it'll heat up so bad it points *right* before the 'H'.
 
Changed the clutch fan and thermostat earlier today myself; waiting to see results once the gasket glue dries.

i was just at pick a part then went to Ralph's in abbostford
we found a celica gt4 with the water intercooler got it for a friends mr2 only $50
then was told i could have the coolant pipe for free
the jb weld did not really work as well as hoped
i am hoping the jb weld was stopping it for pressing in all the way and am going to place it in dry

I went into oregon yesterday for beer and supplies. I also picked up a new low profile jack for the autox this weekend...it weighs a lot so i named it moose jack 2 back in action. My brother and I have this old jack at my dads house we call the moose jack because it weighs as much as a moose. The low profile jack though will be nice for getting the front of my car up in the air when i put the steelies/slicks on.

Got pissed at my car because I couldn't get the baby seat out of it. Out of complete frustration I pulled up my seat to find... $230 dollars in cash as well as a bank card and about 100 atm receipts..... guess using that stash over time had left some "interest" in there or something.


So happy. Never have found this much cash. The heavens just opened up for me or something. I was needing a break and a sign for a long while... this will have to do ;).

Bubbling from the reservoir after 30mins - 40mins of driving.
Never fully hot, but right before the line on the 'H' side.

removed my brake master cylinder
bought a old edelbrock water meth kit
little disappointed in it
test the pump at only 25psi
the nozzle jet shoot a stream of water verses mist on other kits
also states that you cannot place nozzle in vacuum or boost pressure area
i dont want to shoot a stream of water at my turbo
the only good thing about the kit is the control unit
lets you go off of rpm and pressure
i might just call this a loss of a hundred bucks

Refreshed the 2 washer motors as they did not work, But now that i got them working i found that the spray nozzle on the driver side is broken so all the water comes out there (Path of less resistance). Im just tinkering till my parts get here, I have 3 other vehicles to fix T_T. I should get some money for all this shit i do. Prelude VTECK motor swap coming soon, along with a 20 valve Black top swap on my friends 86 corolla
and who knows what else....

Took off the gas pedal to pull out my heater.. pulled out the core, cleaned out all the built up crap inside of there since the previous owner did not have vent in the cowling to prevent tree droppings to end up in, Cleaned the connectors on my alternator, cleaned my new parts that will be installed soon, Looped the water lines for the heater with a piece or irrigation hose shoved inside of the 2 lines, then wrapped around the seem with electrical tape a few layers thick. I finally sanded down the water jackets i fixed and scrubbed the head, pulled off the cruise control so that i can put the head on easier.  Mounted a new intake gasket that i made then lost all ambition to put the head on, swept the floor and called it a night. A good day i think

Yesterday I decided to finally deal with my nasty rear center garnish.  As you can see in this pic, it wasn't very pretty...

(http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/silvertondevil/mobilepics/IMG_20110326_142358.jpg)

First I started off by buying some wet/dry sand paper in grits between 1000 and 3000.  I let them soak for well over 48 hours.  I started off with the 1000 grit, and soon realized that I would need a whole lot more elbow grease than I could muster!

(http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/silvertondevil/87s12SEv6/trimwip1.jpg)

But I moved right along with it, and soon realized that the sanding sponge I had bought was 180 grit, or something along those lines, so I went to town on it!  And eventually got to this.

(http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/silvertondevil/87s12SEv6/trimwip2.jpg)

Must better, but still not good enough.  I went ahead and grabbed my Griots random orbital and machine polishes 2 and 3 to clean it up.  It still needs a bit of work to be "perfect" but it's good enough for right now!

It's smooth and shiny, but if you get up close you can see the deeper gouges that the rougher sand paper put in the plastic.  the polishing filled it in for the most part so its smooth to the touch.

Got a new water pump. Got the trans mount and trans cross member mocked up and ready to be welded. Trying to knock out all the things that have to be modded first. Still have a few mods left to do.

Installed the lower trans/engine harness. I used the 1 from a S14 and modded it to fit in the s12. Got my heater hose lines in. Got my fuel lines in. finished all wiring under the hood. Got the grounds under the hood ran. got the radiator mounted in. Got the intake in. Got all the vacuum knocked out. It's ready to start but I'm going to wait till it's 100% done first so I can hop in and take that first drive. I ready for that moment. I still have a lot of shit to do, but the ka swap is damn near done. just need the trans mount welded and my drive shaft mated and installed.

mounted the Recaro's in the s12. it was a bitch but if i was going to put any seats in my car the recaros were they way to go. adjustable to the left and right buy 1 inch and 1 1/2 inches up and down. it helped level the drivers side a bunch.  both are in both fit perfectly. fuck ya. I also cut the intake down by 2 inches so i could fit the s14 coolant over flow on the drivers side fender well. looks stock. I also swapped out the over head light that gusto sent me had to trim the metal that holds the rear part of it in but it went right in after that.

the 2 rear hole lined right up, the fronts 2 holes were a bitch. i had to cut the old seat mounts out and drill holes in the floor. had to do a ton of cutting and hammering. i used E30 recaros seats. They are height adjustable so it helped level the drivers side.




these are it

Drove about 40 miles off-road, it was an epic drive until we got it stuck in some deep sand. 2 and a half hours of digging and McGyvering later and we got it out and back to civilization.

New plug wires seem to be helping with the gas mileage.

Today I pulled my S13 drive shaft from the donor car Luckily it came from a piss poor project car and the bolts were loose. Made my life much easier. grabbed the s12 drive shaft, A light hammer and, A 12 mm wrench. Pulled the s12 drive shaft apart. Mated the s13 Front to the s12 rear. Took it back to my car and bolted it all in. Forgot to use the s12 carrier bearing housing and that was a little tricky to get in. Got it done. Waiting on the trans mount to be welded.

Stayed up for 24 hours working on my car. No more vac leaks now, Fixed some panels that were coming unglued by re-stretching them with heat from my work light and using a spray on adhesive. Entire Interior is installed, Fixed the multi switch (headlight stalk) I now have high beams again, Rewired my deck and sub. Installed red rear drivers side marker light, inflated all tires to same psi, tested wires at the tach with my DMM (finally found the damn thing) It confirms that its the tach itself that is not work so i get to take it apart all over again.

I detailed the fack out of my interior, only a 1/6th of the way done. Very good steam cleaner with a wide head and a scrubbing nozzle with a high power brass nozzle to cut through thick dirt, Mothers, Windex, rags and a hard large scrub brush.

One thing I learned from the PGT. The transmission isn't a kickstand :P
I gladly get underneath it every time i park it to use a hammer to release it's ebrake... It's cheaper than transmissions

I autoxed today...ran a 52 in the morning and a 48 in the afternoon. My brothers fastest time in the morning was a 48 in the miata. Last time I raced I was right even time wise with someone driving a fiat x19...only difference was my rear alignment was messed up and we where both on slicks. This weekend the rear toe was fixed but the slicks where at home...i ran a 48 and they ran a 52....so the alignment alone was worth 4 seconds. Slicks would have net me another 3 seconds or more....

I think you're thinking of the right one, but it's actually an 86. So now I have two 86's, but this one has a ca18et and the other has a ca20e (about to get yanked out and replaced with a ca18det). I swapped out a pile of electronics today, and now I have working directionals, hazards, etc. I'm pretty sure I just ran out of gas today though (I hope that's all that's wrong) and ordered a new 240sx shifter (for some reason a lot of people think cutting a shifter to be shorter makes it a short throw shifter... and they make a complete mess of everything). Now I need to decide what I'm going to turn into a shift knob.

Got rid of the muffler.  which wasn't factory... I don't think anyway.  "Golden Turbo" was written on the bottom of it.

Eventually sawzalled it off, while I was trying to get it off the crimped part, the tip came out, it was falling apart from the inside out...

(http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/silvertondevil/mobilepics/429.jpg)

and what replaced it, buddy welded on a tab to bolt it to the stock rearmost hanger, I added a cheapy tip since just the pipe wasn't long enough, but I'm going to change it out for a different one cause I don't like it.

Took out the thermostat and ran the car around town as is.
But BEFORE doing so I saw oil in the radiator fluid, booo! (or is that YAY?!).

Either it clunks out or not, its coming out in mid July when extra $$ come in and everything goes well; going for the KA24 swap, screw the CA20. DOHC or SOHC KA24, I'll take either one at this rate so long as it doesn't smoke, knock, overheat or rattle!

HAHA!!!! Its funny that happen to you. One time while at work a costumer came in complaining of some noice in his car. We pull the car into the shop and I ask one of the Technicians to take a look at it and see what the noice was. As soon as the Technician opens the hood this cat meows and jumps out and runs away, haha. I saw the Technician jump an get really scared haha. We call the costumer back in to explain. The Technician spoke little english to try to explain what the noice was and the costumer was an Asian and understood English very little. The only way we came to understanding was when the Technician said "there was Meow Meow in the carro" hahahahaha

Not crazy.  Just turbulent flow around the headlight, sadly, US schools no longer teach you kids any of this stuff.  Slip n Slide's answer is proof enough, "Makes sense to me, but iunno. haha"  Sad...

Nah, I know there is a pocket of air there, kind of on the same level as an air foil.  It's just fun to watch sometimes.

Post by: Arro on 01:46:12 PM / 27-May-11
Turning the turbo bulge into a "functional" scoop has been proven scientifically to be a bad idea, as it creates a negative pressure zone directly under it. The RX-7 FC guys went into HUGE detail about this because they have factory scoops in the same location.

Techically speaking, the turbo bulge is a compete detriment to performance. It adds more wind drag, and more weight, and when the front is opened, it actually causes heat to linger more in the engine bay because it cancels out the normal flow of air through the bay.

But it's iconic for our cars, and for 80's Japanese cars in general, this two-piece hood and scoop look. And we all know the real reason Nissan placed it on the S12 -- the FJ engine needed it to clear its massive twincam head.

Seemed to be WAY overheated. Turned it off coasted to a stop, then began field diagnostics. Everything seemed to be in good shape, no leaks, slightly low on coolant; but otherwise normal. Unplugged CHTS then replugged it, went down to less than half temp instantly and didn't have heat issues after...


However:

I had to tow Slicks12's car about 2 miles up some gnarly fucking grades with the SE. The auto trans is going fast. Car idles rough now... how could towing cause that?

Dumbfounded-
driven the car for two days, driven /all day/ up and down the highway; not once overheated.
It either stayed at halfway or before halfway closer to the 'C' side. It was freaking hot out.

Only time it started to warm up *a teeny bit* was while sitting in traffic at a light. On my way the clutch fan kicks on and its right back to before the halfway mark closest to 'C'.

I guess it was working out a air bubble after I removed the thermostat?!!! Possible unknown clog now unclogged?
Rad fluid looks shocking normal all of a sudden. I compared everything to my brother's car (which indeed has oil in its water, looks like bubbly sh*t). No resemblance whatsoever. No bubbling in my car's reservoir either.

Weird silly little car lol  :tongue2:

In a different car, it was night and while I drove I heard a loud *POP*. Pulled over, thinking it was a engine belt. Didn't see anything.

Next few days I noticed flies flying around the bumper. Peeped under the hood and saw a kitten chopped in half, poor fella! He/it must've crawled in there to catch some warmth from the engine (it was cold out). Its eyes were all bleach white, mouth open stuck in a 'AHHHH!' expression :reallysad:

currently running no air filter, but only temporary.  Went ahead with the cut air intake box, tack welded the factory baffle screen over the hole so french fries can't fall in.  Went to paint, but the paint wasn't agreeing, so it's spending the night in a strip tank.  In the end, it's going to look factory.

Car kept dying on me. Did what any parts whore would do, I started throwing parts at it.

Replaced the original maf with a new reman that is just clean as a whistle. Didn't work. Replaced ECU with one I found in the junkyard...  Boom. It runs amazingly better, still slightly off, but this will atleast get it going until the auto trans blows on me.


The other day I towed slicks12's car 5 miles through a bunch of hills with my SE... that's actually what started my constant dying no power problems... asshole owes me a tranny.

Fixed the valve stem those god damned kids kept kicking, and eventually tore.

visited the DMV again, and sorted out all the registration fun once and for all (until October, at least, when I have to renew it). Adjusted the extreme amounts of slack out of the ebrake, only to find that it still does absolutely nothing. Further diagnosis required.

Picked up ALMOST all the parts needed for the z31 vented rear brake conversion.  should have grabbed everything the first time I saw it.  Missing HALF of the caliper on the passenger side and the soft line that comes right off of it.

Picked all that up for $40.  Got charged to two suspension control arms..... with calipers/rotors attached!  SCORE.

We have a deck built on the front of our house, and we put benches on it.  luckily, the height of the bench was just above the grill and only took out the headlight cover.

Before you go talking about the e-brake, it's a long story, and I always set it, I was just in an annoyed state of mind and had to move my car really quick and forgot to pull it up.

50 bucks is he was just going off stickers that are possibly on the back of the car (Silvia, not sentra, but could be mistaken).

Do you have all the wires/fuses/relays/connections hooked up to the new terminals that were on the old terminals?  Might have to rub some of the paint off for it to make a good enough connection.

yep. they are just fine. I was monkeying around with the plug wires, these are funky compared to the other ones from the ca20.
I didn't think it was making a correct contact but. Then again I was out of fuel yesterday, gave it a 5Gallon of gas today, re put in the plugs and my bat was dead from me yesterday.

Dude. Most people are born colorblind.
Or, through some nerve damage.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: drummingpariah on 10:57:27 PM / 09-Jun-11
It's genetic. Sometimes people become colorblind due to brain damage (technically, Jay's right, it's nerve damage ... but it's in the brain, so I'm just being a little more specific). Color blindness isn't really a big deal until you come to a blinking traffic light and don't know if it's yellow or red, or if you're working on a car that uses lots of wiring conduit and it's impossible to trace wires by hand. Otherwise, I've just found that people give crappy directions to colorblind people (first green house on the left doesn't help me at all).

I always seemed to have this problem at my old job with the debit machine "and press the big green button" and I always thought to myself "I gotta find a new way to tell them which button to press" because of thinking I might be saying it to someone who is colorblind.

Looks like the battery is having issues, will be taking down to get it tested tomorrow morning.
Spent my afternoon testing a few things, and charging the battery that is having weird charging issues, noticed the water level on this bat was almost non existent.
it's an old vatozone battery anyways.

theres something about the sexiness of an s12 that attracts the bird poop. whenever i wash mine its guaranteed to get hit by some sort of water irrigation system and leave the stupid water marks. thats why i gave up washing it lol

I changed more of the vacuum lines, found that the EGR line was split at both ends!  I also painted the grill Satin Black, so its only 1 color! I also put some aluminum duct tape inside the reverse light housings and swapped the bulbs for 50watt halogen versions!  All in all a good day with the car idling smoother and lower (900 rpm) and more power with a bit better throttle response!

Friday - Replaced Wireset and Spark Plugs...

Saturday - Replaced Fuel Filter, Fixed O2 Sensor, Replaced both door panels (thanks Andrew) with fresher SE panels (thanks Gustard) and got her runnin decent with no more misfire issue, but idles a lil funky but tolerable still... Did the free short throw shifter mod (thanks Sterling), and she shifts beautifully now.

Sunday - Cleaned out the cargo area and replaced the trunk carpet with fresher dark grey SE shag, and replaced the dome light behind the sun roof (thanks Gustard again)

Walked into the garage, looked at it.  Decided I should really drop the front subframe and suspension setup ready for it's upgrade.  Then turned around, locked the garage and went back inside the house because it's too damn cold.

i changed my oil yesterday...i couldnt find the oil filter wrench, but after trying a couple of times to get the filter off bare handed i found some rubber grippy gloves. I put those on and managed to he man the filter off. I then drove to oregon and bought beer...yay. Oh, and castrol is dumb...i used to buy castrol syntec, but now i buy castrol edge with syntec thanks to some dumb marketing reps...also, the price for oil went way the fuck up...

Installed a $15 ebay 240sx short throw shifter. I'm actually quite impressed with the effectiveness of this shifter, the shaft isn't any shorter but they effectively raised the fulcrum quite a bit so it's around 50% shorter (and much tighter) throws. It'd be nice if the ball retainer were the same between the s12 C and s13 C transmissions, but they're close enough.

Mental-
Your post got me curious so after work today, I looked inside the console and it all came back to me!  Well almost, the top linkage is similar to the earlier 200sx that we used to get the trans from for our 510s, so I took it apart, flipped the bushings and spring, putit all back together. Then I drove it and it was too far forward, so I took it apart again and turned the shifter around and it was much better!

I still gotta make a run by the pick n pull for all the missing or broken items, si I think I will grab a 280z and a D21 shifter and tweak with them til I have one I really like!  Definitely needs to be cut down!  Maybe a nice leather boot for the shifter and Pbrake and a weighted knob might be in order soon!
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: mentalxpreshun on 04:48:58 AM / 15-Jun-11
Low594 - Right?! No more Radio Smashing and the shifting feels so much better. Sterling told me if you heat up the stock shifter, you can separate the top and bottom pieces to reveal a super short shifter. I also remember reading about the shifter from one of the Z cars, but forgot which one. I kind of like how it is with the flipped bushing, but a little bit shorter wouldnt hurt.

Swapped my Idle Air Control Valve from the other s12 (basically become a CA20 parts car since its gettin an engine swap), adjusted idle, and filled up with some 91 Octane gas... She has almost become a completely new car. Much much more responsive and firing a lot smoother.

S30 and 130 shifter works for b trans and angles the shifter back towards the driver d21 will not work for c trans the lower ball is physically larger than the one on. Typical c trans. I'm running a shortened s13 shifter its tits sits way lower than the radio itself. Next up is shortening N actual s13 short shifter and try that

ripped the negative side wire off the coolant temperature sensor connector, took the connector from the white hatch and jacked one of its pins, did some soldering and got my new temp sensor installed...

tried to remove the O2 sensor with many different O2 sensor pulling tools and drenching it in seafoam and ended up stripping it... ended up making due with what I have and improving the connection on the current sensor and did some solder work to that too...

idle is strong and more solid, noting that the coolant temp sensor and fixing the connection on the O2 sensor may have helped... even more so throwin some 91 octane in her =)

got my two new coils and TPS today too, so will be installing one item at a time to note any progress/changes

Drove mine to work and back, 130 miles round trip, the usual.  Tested the EGR, seems fine.  Found more vacuum lines and got them changed out.  Search for the PCV, I think I found it in the front of the engine above the intake runners and under the plenum, is that right?  Do I have to remove the plenum to get to it? Are there any gaskets involved?

Changed out the thermostat, as suspected, stuck partly open. I don't think it was operating at all, just cracked open slightly!

Yesterday, I went by a smog shop, butit would fail if the machine was plugged in. He advised changing the BPT as it wasn't functioning, cleaning or changing the EGR and maybe replacing the cat!

Today, I ordered a new BPT from the local dealer, due in on Wed, $67!  Then called around to muffler shops, $200 at one place and $600 at another, just for cat replacement!
Then I tried to remove the EGR for a cleaning.  I got everything off except 1 nut!  Looks like the head or the entire engine needs to come out to do a service on it!  Am I missing something?  So I went to put it back together and I can't get the large pipe nut to thread on! WTF!  Seems to be fine with out the nut on securely, but I hate leaving things undone!  HELP!?

That's not CAS. CAS would prevent spark from leaving the coil in the first place. Your issue isn't cam angle sensor related.

Stopped by 2 of the local PickNPulls for misc. Bits and pieces.  I found a 1980 200sx and about 5 240sx, & 2 280z.  Only managed to come out of there with a good sized handful of bolts, washers and screws!  :glarestraight: the workers said those cars never sit very long!

I didn't see a single CA motor! But there were VGs everywhere!

I don't think following the factory service manual is the best idea. First it brings you in by telling you to hit the digidash with a screwdriver, but then it tells you to take a hit from the charcoal canister. For "testing purposes."

met up with another member (Redneck) who's house/car I have been driving passed for the last 4+ months, long before I got my own s12, wondering who owned the mk1 turbo car parked in front of the house.  decided to stop today when I saw the SE in front of it after seeing it twice in town.  It was just by chance that the SE was out front as it's usually in the garage.

10* or 4*?  the sticker on my hood says 0*?  Mines a Cali Mk1 CA20E, maybe thats the difference.  Altho, when i got it, it was at 20 and seemed to run fine, but it did end up with more power when it was adjusted down to 0*!

I turned up the boost! lolz

Seriously though, I'm at 12.5PSI now... Feels like it pulls way harder than the 11.5 that I was at, doesn't make sense since it's only 1PSI, but whatever!

Duty cycle is still good at 62% @ 5000RPM with 11.3:1 AFR, and should be lower now that I went though a tuning cycle (should be at 11.7 - 12:1).

Edit:
I need to get it on a dyno...

I pulled apart the plug wires, and remove the jank plugs and installed nkg vpower plugs, which I've noticed the old ones where actually 1/2 inch shorter then the ngk's which is most likely why I couldn't seat the wires correctly.  upon doing so I've removed the air intake stuff that the tb was connected to so I can fit my hand in the 4th cyl and get it to click in. What a pain, but I got it. I still have to put it back together and with luck this will fire right up with 0 issues this time.

Put the air system back together, then cranked it over and it was actually working for the moment 700 RPM idle, all the electronics worked inside the car, including ice cold air. But I forgot I destroyed the metal piping for the coolant line for the TB. First I attempted to block it, but decided just to reworked that by replacing the tubing with some custom 3/8" 3 ft of hose, that but from there it started to crap out. it starts up but idles at 400, 0 electronics work inside. So now trying to figure out the wiring for this VG's connectors. Going to pick a part tomorrow to get a connector hopefully that matches the color of my ecu wiring for the TPS Sensor connector to the engine harness.

I spoke too soon! 
My upper heater core hose decided to go yesterday while the mister took the car for a ride. He tells me he didn't even bother to check the coolant gauge and ran the car to the car wash to 'cool it off'. His method of 'cooling' off a car is *washing* it (WTF?!!) and not once bothered to check the radiator fluid.

Long story short the damn thing is foaming out the rad opening and overheating after 15mins of driving.
Replaced heater hoses (bypassed the heater core) and running it now as I type.
Nothing is mixing, oil or water... This is NOT looking good.

Then again a CA20 never looks good :\

I knew I had boost leaks but I'mm crazy busy so I haven't addressed them yet.  Previous owner left vacuum hoses running everywhere disconnected.  I went out to see if I could get my factory boost gauge to work.  So I joined two hoses, took it for a test drive, got into boost to check it out and DAMN if the car didn't haul ass like never before!  I have to take care of all of the leaks.  Boost gauge still doesn't work though!

Bought the actual battery, and found out why when I have the car running my eletronics don't run. I need a new ignition switch, if I mess with the key inside it turns on then off. The ignition switch is ghetto anyways you can start the car with a screwdriver.  Idling still jank but I'm about to mess with the throttlecable and shorten it just a tad to keep the RPM's about 700.

Going to pick a part tomorrow to get a connector hopefully that matches the color of my ecu wiring for the TPS Sensor connector to the engine harness.

i was gonna say check the tps. make sure its not bad.. also check the maf,  i would also do a compresion check. you could have a stuck valve or one not seating.. bad or dirty injetor(s).  check timing.. there could be 100 reason its not idleing.. idle set to low on the ecu?

what happens it you give it gas?. i know with my ka i have to hold the gas for a few mins then itll idle just fine!(always need this way. even with a new tune up, new tps, no CEL)

if itll take fuel i would sea foam it to try an clear the system out
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Wonderingraven on 11:01:51 PM / 13-Jul-11
idle set high, when i give it gas it revs up no problems at all. TPS might be toast due to the cabling on the connector was wrong if that did effect it any from the adapter wiring mumbo jumbo.

But yeah I'm thinking of dumping some sea foam in tomorrow and let it go from there.

theres a way you can test the TPS. if i remember right you can unplug it and the motor should change the way it runs. if it doesnt than its bad.. i know you can do a volt test on it to set it(i sure the fsm would have teh how to)

After i got home picked up my battery from the autoparts store for having them recharge it again. I've digged into a wire to tape up, tested the TPS sensor volt meter is returning 0 for the diagnostics proceedure in the book, and I cranked it while i had it disconnected and it still idled like before at 300 then choke.

So I'm from this point assuming my issue is the TPS sensor and / or wiring issue with a bare wire for the drainage of the battery.

Changed the rear brake pads, damn its simple, once you know about screwing the piston it!  Painted the passenger door handle & the drivers side window trim black.  Also, picked up a nice S13 steering wheel on Cl for $10 and some H6054 H4 housings with bulbs and daytime bulbs!  I got the steering wheel installed as soon as I could pick up another puller, since I can't find the 2 I own! Damn, storage units!  But they were cheap and the new one is much better built!

>:( I was installing/playing with the new car speakers and i took a break to eat. an old project that i had made fell off my self above my computer and knocked over a large glass of pop that covered my key board, mouse and computer tower and monitor. FML i just spent the last 4 hours taking everything apart as much as possible (Except my monitor). Everything else was not working, comp would only turn on and freeze at a black screen, then the mouse would not work once the computer was fixed, then my keyboad was acting up  :yelling: I just fixed it. so much for working on the car, still have the door panels off and was taping the vapor barrier in place.... Which reminds me, the fucking stereo is still on!!

Found out that i never closed the hatch hard enough so the light stayed on and killed my battery, as i was going to move it from the guest parking and to the rear complex parking. Had to push the car up to my garage and charge the battery till it started and took 2 laps to charge the battery up. Then parked it so that my passenger door is against the big rose bush in back.

Flowmaster indeed. I picked up a new set of rear tires today as well. Its not that loud but I might add a glasspack later. It actually sounds great.

Baby... 20 years old and you own a GTR? Wish I had made better life choices. yeesh!

Raced a few cars last night.

What looked like an early '00s Passat.  Had him from a dig, twice, but he pulled away pretty quick.

Turbo Civic.  I didn't stand a chance.

Turbo VW Rabbit?  Again, I didn't stand a chance.

Durango.  Pulled away with ease, surprisingly after I watched it decimate another car.

I would have probably had a much easier time if I had a 5 speed and 4.11 or 4.30 rear gearing.  But, I wonder how many of the people there could say they get 28mpg cruising on the freeway at 75mph while still having the power and torque of a v6... :D

Jordan what, more specifically, does the flowmaster sound like?

I'll try to get a video of it. I'm not sure I could capture it with my phone though. Its got a good sound for racing or around town.  I might quiet it down with a bit if I decide to take it on a long trip.

This video is close but he must have headers or something making it louder than mine:

Finally got unlazy and installed the Altanator I took off the other day to test if it's good or not. Installed the power steering belt, found a broken wire from the dizzy to the wiring harness, the one on the harness was hard to track down but found it!  Reworked the vaccum leads, found out that i was missing 1 vaccum tubes, and 2 tube where in the wrong spots.

Still has a rough idle, but it doesn't stall out when it's idling now. I'm done for the night since I work early AM, will do more when I get home. I will also dump some seafoam in the fuel tank tomorrow to help clean out the fuel injections.

Clutch slave took a dump right as I was almost home.  Had to push it through an intersection.  The mounting holes in the new part from Advance were too small.  I didn't have any drill bits at the time so I forced the bolts through and basically cut threads.  I bolted it back up and its working fine, but I'll have to bore out those holes in a couple of days.

Decided to put the old TPS sensor because this plug wont fit on the harness all the way, then I lost the only screw left for the sensor. The other screw broke inside the throttle body.  So I've decided to hunt down an KA24E 60mm throttle body with the screws for the attachment of the TPS.

Yesterday, I swapped the lower headlight adjuster screws for ones from a S13 so I can adjust the height without pulling the facia or the running lights, just have to trim the facia out for the screw.

Today, I mounted the Hella 500 fogs, but I think I am going to redo the mounting, not quite happy with it, but they sure do look good!

Nice!

I ordered the brake pads and braided lines for my brake upgrade.  But today I'm probably just gonna throw the z31 trailing arms I got from the yard on it, as my current stuff is starting to be metal on metal.  And then when the parts come in, I'll put that shit on.

Went to another meet tonight. On the way out of the lot  got flagged down by a guy in an Acura asking if I had any parts for my car. I laughed and said "I wish! Why?" and dude whips out his phone n shows me a pic of a good looking red Mark I hatch. Said he'd just saved it from the crusher for 500 bucks. I really wasn't expecting that. I told him to join up on CS12. Guess we'll see if he does or not.

After that me n my buddy went searching for some decent drift spots around Knoxville. Came out more or less empty handed, but we got a couple good runs in at a few places. He busted up his muffler at Wal Mart, but his s13's a champ. Took some good hits and not a thing is wrong with it. It's one stout single cam, that's for sure.

Do a starter on a dodge neon once.
Or a volkswagen Jetta once.

Then you'll know they're easy as hell. As even the VG doesn't require you to remove half the engine bay, and half the engine. And remove half the engine from the subframe to lift it just enough.

But, in usual Jay fashion.
The VG Strikes again!

Heading to the yard to grab more s12 parts! There are 3 s12's here. 2 notch, 1 Hatch and all the cars are miine. None of them have been touched by anyone but me! :) except one time when a dude came just for one of the distributers. Ive only seen one other person with a s12 in the area and he drives the blue notch with the s13 bumper setup and the sr20 platform ( http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2600921/1984-nissan-200sx ). Dont think he'll be messing with them cars in the yard.

tie rod end turned out to be shot on the passenger side yesterday when i went to go get the front of the car aligned....now i have to wait until friday or monday for a new one to show up from spokane and then i can get the front aligned....the rear springs and sleeves should be showing up tomorrow. I also talked to a friend of mine who works at another shop in town right next to the gas station i work at and he had a book that listed a rear camber kit for the back of the s12...it also listed the kit for the 280zx, 300zx, and the maxima....so i should hopefully be able to lose some of the camber no problemo after lowering the back down.

I took my s12 hatch back to the exhaust shop. I swapped to a t25g a couple of months ago. Before the swap I had an exhaust leak and decided to go ahead and swap out my t2 since I had everything apart. The swap was hell but the result is well worth it. Iggy rebuilt my t25g. The exhaust would not line up so I took it to my guy at the exhaust shop and he made a custom pipe to attach to the t25 downpipe. Everything was OK until after the dreamcruise,which got rained out by the way. I developed an exhaust leak again.I used all new gaskets and metal ones between the mani and turbo and between the turbo and downpipe. To make things worse, when checking for the leak I found that "my guy" at the exhaust shop had welded one of the studs on the downpipe to the flange of the midpipe . When I took it back to him he said that was the only way he could make it fit and now could only cut off the bolt that he had welded to the flange. What a mess. What would cause a new exhaust leak so soon? Can metal gaskets leak? Could the bolts have come loose? I used new locking clips. Is it possible to tighten all those bolts with the turbo on the car? Sorry for the long post. Help please.

finally drained the radiator, removed the thermostat that was actually silicone in place, alot of silicone both caked inside and outside of the housing. I had to scrape off as much as I can from the housing before I used the pliers to remove the thermostat.

in this picture you can see some of the silicone stuck onto the thermostat with rust.

100% water, no additives. All rusty flavor.

Started to rebuild my wiring harness (finally). Half the wires go to nowhere, a quarter are disconnected from their junctions, and the rest is jury-rigged.

I have to wonder who sold this guy the engine with no harness, because I don't see any way it could be so disjointed than it was built from a CA20E harness.

Oh and the ignitor's from a J30. Last I checked that was a V6, and had a fundamentally different firing order than an I4. It's no wonder the car doesn't run. It's got a KA MAF, a J30 ignitor, half its wires missing, and a battery terminal for its main junction.

What I've learned: Never trust a Mexican teenager about a car that's older than he is. And only sometimes trust your buddy to tell you you're an idiot for even considering said car. -__-

Crockett's Testarossa was a kit car too, not just the convertible in the background.
We could play semantics but let the facts speak for themselves.

Enzo Ferrari filed a lawsuit demanding that McBurnie and others cease producing and selling Ferrari replicas, because they were taking his name and styling.  As a result, the vehicle lasted until season 3, at which point it was blown to pieces in the season three premiere episode, "When Irish Eyes Are Crying".  The fake Ferraris were removed from the show, with Ferrari donating two brand new 1986 Testarossasas replacements.  When Ferrari saw the black 'Daytona', he was convinced that it did not stand out in the night-time scenes very well; thus, the new Miami Vicecar was produced in WHITE. Ferrari continued this color in production for the Testarossa only.

UK and humor?  Right!  And since you don't post your AGE what level shall I stoop?  Is there a minimum age? 
Have you lived along a southern border state?  Ever been in Mexico?  Baja California?  Witnessed family crossings...  There is a lot of tension and it's still building in the southern states.  They may not "get" your sense of humor.  Some of those guys don't really have a sense of humor and I'd stay away from the topic of "heads."  Sometimes they're just looking for examples.

And you also choose not to post your age.  Why is that?  Something to hide?  Folks if you don't post your AGE I can't take you seriously.  And you LOL at your own so called joke. 

Seriously thinking I'm too old for this place.  At 52 y/o I post my age.  What the fuck could be worse?

Looked at my S12 and remembered I live in Texas. And have an incredible amount of experience with Mexicans. More than likely, more so than a dude from Hawaii. I've learned the Mexicans on this side of the border are all talk. You've got more chance of getting hurt by a Viet dude, here.

Anyway, the harness rebuild continues. I'm considering getting a Q45 ignitor.

And I just realized I left my back window open, Friday night, and it rained for the first time in months.

So anyways don't personally own an s12 and the only thing wrong with the secura notch (which now has a 255lph fuel pump, and is ALL hooked up)... only problem is it has a coolant leak so I am trying to find it, they really made the ca20 a pain.

Got 270miles on 3/4 of a tank (7.5 gallons) so I get the mileage. I just need to stop driving like err day is the track.

I was just derpin and misjudged the curb, now she'll have a fullsize spare. Lets stay positive.

Funny story: Ultra Super Gas Mileage can be better achieved through quick acceleration to final velocity below 55mph, and reaching cruising gear as soon as possible, as opposed to grandma-like slow-burn acceleration. As for the speed you stay at, that's something I don't think any of us are any good at.

That said, I know exactly what Maxpow means about derping around. The Saturn and the GMC pickup have both suffered from this. The former got both its right tires blown out, and the right CV axle fucked when I mis-timed a rev-match on the downshift into a right turn, and it jumped forward into the turn lane. And right up over the corner of a drive-in. At 45mph.

As for the GMC, I live by this warehouse, and I was tooling around with a kid I went to high school with, and I was drifting the damned truck around the corners. Well, I hit one corner, and the brakes either didn't catch enough, or it didn't downshift in time, because I didn't swing out, I just skidded and smashed the wheel into the curb. Bent the lip to hell. Luckily, Sierra had a full-size spare on her. I rolled the truck out of the way, and we got that wheel swapped in 5 minutes, using the OE scissor jack. (which was all the way down when I started) The broken wheel is still under the bed. The suspension on that side is either so bad already, or so resilient, I haven't noticed any differences. She'd still be a tool-around, if the transmission wasn't going out again, and the engine had more than 5 of its 8 cylinders firing.

Oh, and Jay, cowgirl in the back seat of an old GM pickup, while your buddy's off-roading it. Like. A. Boss.

*ahem* This is about what I did to my S12. So, what I did to my S12 today was put more time, and curses, into this damned wiring harness. Half the wires are missing, or the wrong color, thanks to one of the previous owners doing their own work on it. At least the current owner studies electrical engineering. -_-

Pulled both front fenders, the bumper, the grille, grille support, and the one parking lamp I still have off.

She looks funny now, but the passenger door opens and the headlight will actually raise and fall. Door must be aligned too far forward.

Oh, I also re-routed the positive terminal the previous owner had through the shifter hole.

Now, I just need to solder this wiring harness, get this new ignitor in place, get all the missing bolts back in place, find a new PS pump and bracket, glue some shit down, and probably replace the driver fender and find a new set of parking lamps. And a new battery.

That makes it even funnier. It only stood out to me because it's in the exact same place, with the exact same crease positions, and looks ifuckingdentical.
So, I bought a MK II hood.... It's sitting against the wall in the garage. Saving it for if the next engine doesn't fit quite right.

Also.

You have to take the good with the bad with these cars. Today I had a very good. I rebuilt my headlight combo light stalk using a thread from the sr20 web site. Lights work perfectly now. Now the bad. I have another exhaust leak. Probably my fault. I used washers with the locking clips. The washers raise the nuts to where the locking clip can't do it's job and the nuts loosen causing the exhuast leak. If it gets any worse I will have to pull out the t25 I just put in and redo the clips minus the washers. Damn Damn Damn!

verified what i already knew. cylinder 3 has low compression, in the area of 60#s. bent valves from undesirable object in the cylinder before startup. planned on rebuilding an extra motor, but can't find 10:1 pistons for the vg. can find stock and 11:1. think instead of a full motor build I will do it cheap with a set of fresh heads, just gotta do a little work to my spare heads. new valves and lifters, light machining, and i have a good mototrr for a few hundred bucks. winning.

Took my time cleaning up combining two sets of headlights into one 'correct' set, sandblasted, primed and painted them, and reassembled them. They'll go back in tomorrow, and maybe I'll diagnose why the motors aren't receiving up/down signals.

when I picked up the KA24DE from "jay" lol it had that sensor on it, I believe them sensors are ment for 5spd manual tranny's
the one on the left is from the vg30e OEM, in which I believe for an autotragic, I also replaced that oem with one from rock auto, which is what I have on there now. It shifts soo much better especially I got my passing gear back for the slow old guys on the highway that wont drive faster then minus 10 - 20 mph from the posted speed at 65. or the constant bottle neck at the i-15 / us 95 here in vegas at rush hour. To a point where I Squat when I hit the throttle at 45 now instead of being bogged down touching the gas.

Old one was crispy due to the fact it was sitting on the exhaust, next is that it was loose, very loose. I was able to untighten it with my fingers.
So put the new one on, it even has the exhaust leak sound gone.

Yeah, I s'pose. That's my plan, now. Move on. Find something else to do. This car deserves someone more well-equipped than me. Right now, I'm just gonna focus on getting her to a new home, and paying back my aunt. Then I'll get back into the import tuner game. Thinking of going S13 or Toyota E-chassis next.

Oh well. Could be worse, I guess. I could have done what my cousin did, and bought an old Eclipse GS. Mitsubishi is Japanese for "in very bad taste" lol

/thread jack; this is about what people did with their S12s xD

I took my turbo out to fix a exhaust leak between the manifold and turbo. nust loosened and to my surprise a piece of metal gasket was missing. Replaced gasket with original nissan multilayer gasket and found copper locking nuts along with new locking tabs. I just put this turbo in 4 months ago. I hope not to have to do this again. PITA

Well, I got tired of the sluggish at the starting line idle, and decided to work on more of the issue.
Started by inspecting the IAC valve, and found a broken wire. I also had another IAC valve. I cleaned up the one I found in my box of stuff, and re soldered the IAC wires back together. Noticed the screw was also able to be adjusted While the other one barely can move. It's like omg it idles better now that I can actually adjust the screw, and starts up faster and better, and idles better at the stop light.

(http://www.g-funk.net/200sx/iac-broke.jpg)
Here is the broken wire.

Ontop of that, my Hatch Locking or Latch w/e it's called the screws broke, and it's impossible to replace the screws because it's like apart of the latch. So I decided to JB Welded it back on. Will take pics in the morning.

Additions to S12 are ignition switch, idler bearing and belts, KYB gas-adj, BFG G-Force and fucking wiper pivot.  Now suspension is road worthy and brakes are fine.  Next is the trans.  Not cheap to rebuild ($2k).

Honestly, when we measure them, flange to flange there was about a 10mm overall difference.  So it is f*ck all.  Couldn't believe my luck when it came up for sale.

Still breaking them in.  I also heard good things about the BFG g-Force, so thought I'd give 'em a chance.  They were my 2nd choice.  I prefer Bridgestone RE92's but the price difference ($78 vs. $112) made me reconsider.  I found a place in Cerritos, CA which had BFG g-Force for $62, but their shipping (same carrier) was double!  TireRack monopoly.

I'm a purist (205/60/15).  Never needed guarantee work so far (knock on wood).  The g-Force are sticky and I drive separated from the pack - staying away from other drivers is safer, so mileage may be effect by driving habits.  Kinda like gas mileage, although I gotta say this VG30E guzzles gas!  More so than my S54 Z3 M Coupe did or 135i.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: spiderwebfx on 04:43:52 PM / 19-Nov-11
Ahh I see.  The only reason I ask about mileage is that I've seen a lot of American tyres with guaranteed 40,000miles or more.

In New Zealand we're lucky if our tyres last 40,000km's (25,000miles) because of the shit quality roads they keep building.

Post by: Shark808 on 05:40:43 AM / 20-Nov-11
Seems every used car I buy needs new tires.  With driving average 6k miles annually and changing cars about every 2 years I never get to see...  New car worst I ever did was 13k miles with my '84 Mustang SVO on Goodyear Gatorbacks.  When replacing them with BFG Comp T/A's, I had to get a Firestone along with BFG credit card - $900 was a lot of $$ back then for 16" tires!

checked the oil and coolant levels and took the car out for some highway runs. still afraid to go for long in 5th gear. speedo is maxed out just as I go in to 5th. it seams like 5th is a big over drive on the s13 sr trans.
Stock speedo gets really inaccurate as you get much past 90... But theoretical max speed should be around 165MPH, assuming 4.11:1 rear, 24.7" tall tires, and 7000RPM.

The S13 trans does have a taller 5th than the S12's.

Dude just get some big vice grips or a big adjustable wrench and take that fucker off. Or buy two big ass wrenches and do the super wrench extra torque trick... but then you're stuck with two huge expensive wrenches that you'll never use again.

Breaker bar wouldn't work in this case, he's trying to do the front strut tubes. But yeah breaker bars are essential for anyone who is serious about working on old cars. Hardware gets more and more stuck over time.

I also have this fuckin' massive wrench of unknown origin, which has proven useful countless times.

I advise getting a section of pipe and an adjustable wrench, then use the pipe as a torque arm. That's what we did before the breaker  bar.

Just finished changing my dead black ca20 to a silvertop following Jay's thread. Got a break in the rain yesterday and added all fluids. Charged battery ovenight and put it in today. Started up on the 2nd try and running great. I know it's just a crappy ca but this was my first ever motor pull/install, so pretty darn proud of myself tonight. Celebrating with scotch and a prime rib bbq! Will get current tabs this week, a new muffler & alignment and then will have my daily driver back. Old Guys rule! Thanks to all for your help along the way!!

Oh no - no left over parts. I put EVERYTHING in baggies and labeled just like you guys told me to. ALso labeled all the hoses/wires as they were unhooked. I do have '86 intake manifold, ecu, alt, starter, harness, a/c compressor etc that came with the motor, so those will go up for sale in the near future.

that's a old joke by mechanics "if you dont have any parts left you did something wrong" i had a friend who was the best backyard mechanic i ever saw. if the car we were working on had a really hard bellhousing bolt to get to he would leave it out and say the engineer put there to mess with him. he had a tree in his backyard that we would use a branch from to pull motors in a lot of ways i miss those days it was pure never having the right tool or equipment to do the job but still getting it done and then going for the first test ride after a major project. i will always remember the smell of the grease burning off the exhaust and all the greasy handprints along the side of the car from climbing out from under it

Drove the S12 to visit nephew on the North Shore.  Checked out his new place, Turtle Bay for lunch, then watched the VANS surf contest at Sunset Beach.  No traffic or crowds after the 4-day weekend.  The S12 ran perfect!  Nephew liked the torque...  Also saw some crappy cars and whales.  Did manage a little footage for my upcoming vid.

Post by: Shark808 on 02:02:40 PM / 29-Nov-11
Dependin on your situation.  Grab front tire and wiggle (any play)?  Swap front/rears (any difference)?  Could be wheels, tires, balance, alignment and then onto suspension...  Seems these steering racks go often.  Process of elimination.  Good Luck.

thanks for the fast responce, it drifts to the right a little and does have a crack in the right rear tire sidewall, there is also very little steering play in the wheel.  i plan on taking the wheels off soon and going over the brakes (need to adj the park brake too) i will check for wheel barring play and tierods then if all is good i may swap the tires from my versa on to the 200 to see if the problem is there.   now if it would just stop raining.

Yeah, we have a shit ton of old socks we've historically used for polishing and waxing our cars here, and now I'm using them to rip paint off. Sounds right.

As soon as my car's running, I'm gonna clean it out and clean it up. Vacuum, steam clean, re-align the fenders, bumper, grille, and lights.

Plans moving forward:
Install Altima cupholder in clock slot
Install new radio
Install second cigarette lighter
Install awesome remote system for starter, lights, and horn
Later on, remove horn control and rig up a throttle control, so I can scare onlookers by gunning the engine from afar

How awesome would that be, right? Some teenagers looking at my car and suddenly the engine turns on, the lights stare angrily and it revs hard.

I think the throttle thing would be easy to control with some R/C knowings.

R/C Knowings?

Done a whole lot easier using a PLC. Like an AB Pico or Micrologix 1761. Drawback to the micrologix is you would need to provide 24v to the processor...

Rain-x'd the windows before the front blew through, then had some fun running errands in the wet. Power sliding an open-diffed ca20 that has no valve guides in the rain. Hilarity ensued.

Figure I'd put some miles on the BFG g-Forces, so took a spin out to the West Side and visited a friend.  Got some rays, talk story, took a couple pics, no waves, but the temps were high and got to use the S12's A/C.  Once again the knee-san performed like a champ!

Polishing faces, by hand, ftw. Right is how they were before, left is after about 5/6 hours of work. I'd say it will get another two hours or so to be where I want it, then I'll paint the sunk sections flat black.

Helped a friend inspect and buy a car, Came home, pulled the s12 out of the garage and into the rain :( to plop a 90 SI Civic on 4 jack stands and give her a good inspection. Flushed the brake system and cleaned a lot of chocolaty slime out of the master. Started heavily cleaning the interior, Made a new recliner cable on the drivers seat out of one of my spare brake cables for my bike and a home made crimp... pealed off shitty barely attached stock tint, rotated tires, flushed coolant, oil change, exhaust to header gasket (Stupid spring loaded bolts).

Tomorrow involves new brake lights, reverse lights, temporary patching off 1 very small hole a medium hole and a large hole, welding an exhaust leak, steam cleaning, scrubbing, and maybe new shifter bushings.... then its good for winter

The things i help do for friends :D

what kind of shocks are they? I have read that stock shocks will blow out quickly, which is why you should use the kyb agx shock set up. If you go to my frankenshock thread you will see the difference i got using the shocks and the springs...it was better, but nothing like the coil over setup...

Dude, the WD21 is incredible. I threw it at the shit pushed to the sides of where they're extending this one road, and bone stock, it didn't give a damn about the mud or several 2-foot drops and raises. And mine's 21 years old lol Matt Smith's GMC would have thought twice, I guarantee it xD Just don't get the R50 or later, they suck. (In a related vein, Xterras are WD22, WD23, and WD24 0_o)

Pro Bowl week.  All-Pros runnin around... Out-of-town hookers cluckin for NFL BBC.   

Been meaning to polish my wheels for months.  Either in the garage or beach.  Think I made the right choice.  Checked the oil and still haven't topped off in over 5-months.  As usual the SE ran like a champ.

We have places like that too (Waikiki).  Here its either town or country.  This beach is end of the road out West Side.  No phone reception for miles.  Hardcore local kine reputation keeps most people away, it has two famous radical reef surf spots, which even I can't mention by name in my vids!  The West Side of Oahu has a bad reputation therefor businesses stay away too.  This is the best place on earth, to me.  Get away from the BS, clear my mind, run into friends and talk story.  It's Da Kine.

Removed starter and have it tested before installing the new starter.

Turned out it was a bad starter, Didn't even kick out the shaft.

Then troubleshoot why it would not give power all of a sudden. Turns out, it ended up being a weird custom negative cable 16 guage 2ft wire from the negative post. When I got ride of that I was able to start right up with no issues.

Yeah, I backed into a Ford the other day, and it ruined the tire carrier and rear hatch, and now the transmission and differential are grinding and whining and it's pulling everywhere. I didn't even hit the Ford that hard. Fuckin' pissed off. I'm 'bout to drain this dude who was cussing me out, made me wreck's Blazer's oil pan while he's sleeping.

Better yet, he wants to see someone driving way too fast in a neighborhood, I'll show him way too fast in a neighborhood. Asshole.

I've come to a conclusion: All internet moderators are assholes.

Anyway, point is, I wouldn't have fucked off like that if this fuckhead wasn't cussing me out.
Title: Re: what did you do to your s12 today?!
Post by: Jay on 03:21:17 PM / 01-Feb-12
By that logic:
If you weren't driving, he wouldn't have cussed you out.

But the better way to say it is:
If you kept your emotions in check, didn't give a fuck and ended it or left the scene rationally, you wouldn't have backed into someone else's vehicle.

Fucker was parked in the middle of the street, I was behind an F-series, I forgot I was in a 4000-lb SUV, and I was pissed off because some asshole decided he was gonna come up to me and cuss me out, so I peeled backwards, and the fuckin' wheel goes right, sends me across the street.

You will never convince me you've never had a moment where you've lost check on your emotions, and in turn, suffered a lapse of judgment. Don't imply I'm a lesser person for having my moment.

Jay, you can't argue with his ignorance! It's seems to be the great American past time these days to blame someone when it's OBVIOUSLY your own fault. Schizo, we don't know each other, but your posts and rants would lead most rational individuals to believe you fit perfectly in this great American catagory.  Man up, admit your error, learn from your mistkaes, and better luck next time. I know this post will just piss you off more, but probably good for you at this point to vent some more, so have fun.

I'm not saying I didn't fuck up, I'm saying I fucked up because some douchebag spurred me into it. I didn't just fuck up because I have a tendency to fuck up. I didn't fuck up for no reason. I fucked up, because some asshole drove me into a lapse of judgment, beyond my ability for self-control.

Wouldn't intend to. That would just be internet speculation. I can't recall a moment where I have, but I will never say I haven't.

Never did or wanted to.

I'm not saying I didn't fuck up, I'm saying I fucked up because some douchebag spurred me into it. I didn't just fuck up because I have a tendency to fuck up. I didn't fuck up for no reason. I fucked up, because some asshole drove me into a lapse of judgment, beyond my ability for self-control.

That's pretty much all I was asking for, because this:

I'm 'bout to drain this dude who was cussing me out, made me wreck's Blazer's oil pan while he's sleeping.
Better yet, he wants to see someone driving way too fast in a neighborhood, I'll show him way too fast in a neighborhood. Asshole.

Is not a statement of an individual that owns up to their own mistakes. He may be a cock knuckle, but it isn't his fault.


I'm not being an asshole, just stating up the truth.

Lol srsly.

Went out to work on her right after school. Finally decided to buy a timing light and check the timing. No wonder it was running like shit, it was at like 45btdc! brought it down to 17ish and went to reward her with some much needed fuel.



Now she runs 9756587235264172 times better. Still missing at 2000rpms tho, but at least I can drive it normally lol. Does anyone know what it could be?

Changed the valve cover gasket, gave me a chance to check to condition of the valve train.
Wish Nissan would have made the cover bolts 10mm with a Phillips option, not just a Phillips head screw.
Phillips heads get worn out after about 27 years. Haha

Was starting to rain as i was turning left after through an intersection after the light turned green. Intersection is odd.. has a high spot for railroad tracks then leans downhill to the right and flattens out.... im guessing there was alot of oil there as i slid on the railroad tracks caught the back and recovered then the ass came around about 40 degress or so and i held it and straightened out..... I hate skinny snow tires :Grrrrr: Kinda sketchy as it is a busy 4 lane road

Drove all over the lower mainland. I was laying in the passenger side of my car looking at the back of my deck trying to fix a problem with my sub not working When i had someone walk up to the car and start giving me compliments on how nice it looks. I pulled my head out from under the dash and made some small talk with the guy untill he said, You dont recognize me.... You bought the car from me! LOL.

 I showed him everything i had done to the car and explained the engine problems i had fixed and he told me that he had the motor rebuilt by someone about 2 years before i bought the car. It was not used much as it was ment to go back and forth to school but his son barely used it, so he drove it around. He told me he stills misses this fun little car and he enjoyed it more them the civic they drive around now, I got the feeling he wants it back :D

Broke the steering column, so I could move it out of the driveway, to park the FC behind it. Then put it back in the driveway and let Justin cut the exhaust tip off so he could use it for his car. I'm done, I'm not even trying to sell this thing anymore. Tomorrow, I'm calling a scrap yard.

Couldn't find a drill, Justin was already working at it before I cared to say anything, and my capacity to give fucks at that point was severely diminished. That dude's a fucking ox, broke the column lock like it was nothing.

About a week ago Anthony and I went to  Pull a Part and got a bunch of intake stuff from other cars.

Today he and his cousin came over to help diagnose my car. While they were here we made this:

I actually have a MkI grille in the back of the car. I'll pull it out tomorrow, before I get rid of it. I ended up being too busy to scrap it this weekend.

Soon as I get the FC running again, I'll bring that grille your way.

lol^
i meant the garnish underneath the grille since the MK2 one bulges out and the MK1 grille has tabs that are spaced differently

today i went back and started her up again, noticed a pretty fucking awesome coolant leak too, but just didnt have enough fucks to give. I need to fix the paint around the gas cap since i ended up just prying it open with a screwdriver. Some registration would be cool too, along with yet ANOTHER MAF.
fuck this car.

Or it could be that it's 26 years old and no one ever bothered to lubricate the differential so it fucking locked up like any unlubed diff would do, while I was driving, and the fucking thing spun out. Actually, the engine is working just fine, and it's probably even drivable if I get it a new battery, but fuck it.

And I have one of those, too, VVL. From the same car I pulled the grille from. I'll pull 'em both out because why not.

It's been raining off and on for a while here.  I washed the "Big V6" in the morning, perfect weather for it.  Took care of biz, with the only clean car it appeared.  Then toward end of the day it poured rain, into the night...  Glad my parking is covered.  I believe the "Big V6" is the only clean DD on the island.

Check your wires coming off the positive battery terminal. I see your meter shows no volt drop when you turn the key. mine did the same thing and just needed the wire assembly cleaned and tightened coming off the positve battery terminal. Easier than pulling the starter if that's all it needs!

Got rid of her. She's now the property of a new member on the forum. I figure we'll be seeing plenty more of her in the near future.

I bought some exhaust pieces to get mine finished and they arrived today. As I've long decided to get rid I bought a cheap ebay backbox and boy is this thing cheap. Ha, I can see all the weay through it, from inlet to tailpipe, with literally no obstruction ie; little things like baffles!

I fired it up to prepare it for the drive to the deconstruction zone tomorrow. Must have burned off a whole quart of oil that collected while it sat the last month lol.

Tearing down front suspension this weekend. Woot.

Did the Z31 ecu + maf upgrade.

Made a new air intake because the first attempt looked like balls.

Oh, and took all this stuff out.

Ahhhh!  You gutted it!  Nice,  and use the tried and true CO2 method to freeze that goop,  then chip away at it while its frozen solid.

Ive gutted 2 s12's and an s13 using that method.  2 blocks from your local grocery story should do well.  Besst if done while its cold (helps freeze sound deadening faster)

DUDE!  The SAME EXACT thing happened to me a few weeks ago.  I noticed the muffler was hangin loose,  then I just yanked it off of that same spot.  Now I'm running no muffler as well,  except my CA20E sounds exactly like the bosozoku 4 banger cars that you see on those youtube videos, I totally love it,  and there's definitely a powerband shift,  I should have ripped that P.O.S. off sooner.  Funny stuff!

Sold the Big-V6.  Wanna talk about a response?  FUCK!  Unreal.  Love for the S12 shocked me!  All ages responding.  Bidding war for more than asking price.  I couldn't keep up with emails...  Wish I could make everybody happy.  In the end everyone was a "good sport" about it.  S12 people are cool. 

I will inform new owner of this site, but he may already know.  More important than selling price is the S12 gets garage parking, so no street-parking like a common whore.  Go Big V6 Go!

I change cars a lot.  Who knows where I may be a noob next?  The "Big V6" would be bumped to street-parking and rarely used.  Hawaii probably has the best car thieves on the planet.  Even with two alarms the S12 would be gone!  The new owner is older than me (that's right) and probably can own/drive any car he wants.  That's what's so cool about the S12.  From teenagers to fifty-somethings the enthusiasm is the same.  He really wanted this 200sx.

I will be at the beach finishing my autobiography, titled "Black Like Me"!  Maybe I can snap shots of other things?  And Shark will always be around...  Who else will provide action shots when tsunami hits Hawaii?

I wouldn't rule it out, but doubt can find one (especially here) in that original condition.  The engine-bay is amazing, with every little clip, strap, clamp in place.  If the original owner is reading this, you did an amazing job.  Although I'm more impressed with some of you "young bucks" on here.  The stuff you are doing is way beyond what "we" did at your age.  And you act like it's nothing!

We got Experience, Brute force and sheer determination in our little community which makes for some interesting builds and topics.

Finished doing the diff seal on the Toyota and pulled it out of my garage so i could move my s12 in from the snow/sleet.

As you may know I shared what I paid for the S12.  I got a great deal and spent some money...  It basically sold in a day and offers exceeded my asking price of $3K.  I'd like to share the exact sale amount, because understandably it helps others with pricing, but unfortunately can't.  The response was crazy.

I didn't realize till the last minute I was missing the front cover assembly, so I went hunting as first thing this morning. I found a Z31 by mid day and started to remove the bolts and one of the main bolts is stripped to all hell and I almost had it but that is when they said they are closing =( so Me vs Z31 rematch tomorrow morning.

1 Bolt holds it all together, Then I'll finish my 5spd swap.

Today: Spent the morning loosening, tightening, loosening, tightening, tweaking the hood, readjusting grille, tweaking, etc. etc.... until I got the front light covers, hood, and grille properly lined up.

In retrospect, last Thursday: Changed the steering rack. Installed a heat shield over half the air filter.

Last Tuesday: Changed the water pump.

@Arro - what is your wheel size and offset? Got a side profile pic?

Oh and did you just replace the steering rack with an s12 steering rack? do you think the s13 steering rack conversion/swap is worth it?

It was nice outside so I threw in my new old as fuck head unit and a shift boot I got from an '84 CA20 car at the yard. That shit has some power seats I kinda want as well... Maybe.
Should have probably cleaned my stereo and shift boot, but I guess that's a project best saved for another day.
Also sanded/primed/painted my newly acquired MK1 grille valence panel thingy courtesy of Schizo. I think I might take a picure of it some day when I go to hacksaw the old one out because its apparantly part of the fender on MK2 cars? I'm a lazy fucker, deal with it.

Edit: I also fucked my starter lol. When I turn the key, nothing at all happens, it doesn't even spin. It spun when I used a screwdriver and jumped it at the starter, but it wasn't engaging on the flywheel.
I <3 cars older than me.

It's tack-welded or soldered to the fenders. Just need to give it some love with an angle-grinder. Or bend it free, if you're into that.

The fun part is gonna be securing the grille to the valence, since it won't clip in anymore. Challenge: Do it without zip ties.

Bought a brand new starter/battery, threw them on this morning, still didn't start. Threw on my brand new MAF and push-started it, felt a shit ton better. It actually has power! Still runs like shit though, missing under 1500, hitting a rev limiter at 2500 unless I'm at WOT, and throttle doesn't respond unless I'm over half throttle. I'm fucking beat, don't know what else it could be. Everything is new on this fucking car.
Thinking about trading it for an FC, LOL.

What I did today was, removed the rear shocks, reset them as they are supposed to be. Replaced one with a new one I ordered last week, then faced my enemy with the power again... somehow my s12 just doesn't like the battery or something it's possessed, I just re-crimped and replaced the end for the 10th time now, and it cranks over just fine last end has nothing wrong with it just for some odd reason it wont work anymore. Cleaned up the battery once more. Everything on the battery looks solid, I even modified the fusible link housing to fit in the screw better.  uh 100 degree's is not something to work in these days, I just need it to last till fall =(

Finally someone has tested this diff I been waiting for a review of sorts besides some fwd Honda guy as no s13 owners nor s12 members have spoke on this.... Thanks heaps mate!

- Yesterday replaced lower steering coupled with new unit. This is the second time I replaced it 2 years ago that one finally tore I zipties it together and drove the bish home like a boss.... Got a s13 vss to rid my pesky fuel cut underload in 5th... For now running a AT ECU atm....

- Today....Let my ladyfriend drive her around to insue gawking amongst the interested.... Quite funny and nice sitting in my passenger seat for a change... Damn its cushiony my ass isn't hitting the floor!! I thought to myself..... "So this is what the driverseat FELT like once upon a time!"

Went to crank it, and it clicked. Turned it a few times and all it did was click then it finally fired up. Took a look at the battery post, and it was black again instead of silver.    /confused of why I have this issue with this battery / positive cable.  Waiting till I get paid tomorrow so I can get a new cable to replace it.

Lol, I feel stupid as shit.
Went outside to try to find why it wasn't cranking and discovered the clutch pedal switch was poorly bypassed, causing the wires to corrode and current to not flow. So I cleaned them up, and put some heat shrink tube and just like that she lives once again.

Couldn't believe it was something so stupidly simple. (http://zilvia.net/f/images/smilies/facepalm.gif)

Was going to try to drive it out to work.... So glad i didnt.... I dont think it would have the get up and go of the big v6 in the truck to avoid this crash. It would have put me in the hospital or worse as i dont have airbags in either :/

"I left work, headed down number 6 from bridgeport to get onto the highway. I entered onto the highway behind a red civic to get suck behind a slow weaving corolla. Both the civic and i passed him and continued on our way.

I noticed him pull out behind me so i kept an eye on him since i thought they were under intoxication. As i neared exit 15 i see the headlights start to fly up behind me and start to tailgate me. I would have moved over but there was another car beside me I upped my speed a lil bit as his headlights were damn close to my tailgate. I got up close to the civic but left a little wiggle room. We passed the car beside us as i went to let the off the throttle a bit and move over the corollas lights disappeared behind my tailgate. I braced for impact and correction (already in the corner at this point) but seen his lights dart passed the passenger side mirror of the truck. Then i hear loud screeching as he spun 90 degrees back towards me (Shifted into third so hard and quick i punched the dash) Mashed the gas and he barely missed T-boning my passenger rear corner before slamming into the meridian, Spinning around and shooting backwards across traffic and into those trees in the pic just before the Exit sign. A white vehicle (Van?) near nailed him in the drivers door as he went across the road.

I called ambulance and police while i walked back to find him, when i got to the car he was sitting in the drivers seat trying to start to car to drive away but it would just barely start and die. I told him to stop moving and he kept telling me "im fine im fine"... Car is in a flooded ditch, front is mangled, rear has damage and the airbags went off...

Next thing i hear is what sounded like water pouring into the ditch from the rear end since it was up in a tree(My best guess is a punctured fuel tank) I tell him to stop you may be leaking gas and he starts searching around the car, Finds his turbine and starts to get out but gets into the narrow flooded part of the ditch and almost went up to his knees and he started calling around.

Cops get there and take a statement and got a breathalyzer out and he blew Way over so they cuffed him and put him in the back. I had the give an audio statement and have to go to court in a year or two when he gets charged. What a way to start the weekend... started last weekend with a cut to the bone

Im using detail now so i can jog my memory and have an accurate statement in court. But here are some pics

Front bumper and plate are nowhere to be found so one of the young firemen had to jump the ditch to get onto the car, crawl over the roof and threw the thorns to get a plate number it was entertaining while everyone else waited for him to fall in

Got a new windshield put in, got her insured, bought an IACV at the yards, cleaned the TB, changed the TPS and broke the goddamn top bolt right in there. Oh well, I just tightened the bottom bolt and hoped for the best since I'm in a hurry and this shit is DD status as of today.

Throttle response? Check. Fuel cut at 2200? Gone. Feels fucking nice now, still need to change out that fuel injector, but for now, it'll have to do.

Let someone test drive it for a trade and came back to find that he had left it in neutral. On a hill. Without the ebrake. ... and it was 20 feet in the woods. Rather than having to find ANOTHER place to hide bodies, I sent him home. Luckily, I got away with a crumply fender, and that's it. Anyone have a spare lying around that they'd part with inexpensively? Ideally black, but I suppose I don't mind painting if it's in tact and rust-free.

Drove it over to Mikes in the pissing rain to help with his CA18DET Datsun Roadster. Still couldn't fix the car so we packed up and i was dismissed lol. I back the car onto the road and turn left just as my wiper arm pops apart on me. I put it back together and drive down the road to left at the next set of light (Busy ass road) arm pops off again! So im stuck in traffic with my 4ways on and waited for a gap to jump out and fix it again. I drive ten feet......... Bang, popped off again so i put down the drivers window and stuck my head out, Luckily i was near Lordco (Auto parts store). Bought $10 of random shit to try and fix it then spent an hour and a half or so on trying to get anything to work. Went back in and got some spiny looking washers, and got the guy at the counter to cut them for me. After another hour i got the washer to press into place using my fingers and a cheep Flathead i luckily had in the hatch along with a pen light to find the washer all those times it popped off and disappeared in the cowling :(. I got it fixed and had spent two hours in the pissing rain, i couldnt have gotten wetter if i went swimming :FUCK:. Used some Kleenex to wipe the grease and dirt off my hands then took off my shoes, socks, jacket and T-Shirt and Blasted the heater, So glad the my heater is almost as hot as a hair dryer :D

paint lip and side skirts today.  Had to go to a local napa with a paint mixing department.  a pint of Nissan color code '006' cost me $30 and to get two spray cans was just shy of $19.  4 cans can be made out of a pint, so I still have half a pint when needed elsewhere.

Befores:

You can kinda see the lip in this one.

Ok first things first. I did a few different chances this weekend to my baby.

First I reworked the custom Air Intake, made it shorter so that eliminated the vacuum leak I had.

Next is, I pulled bot turn signals lights in the front just to see how to clean up the covers and look what I found?!?
10 Gauge wire plugged into the 18 gauge wire on the body harness, why such big gauge?!? "ghetto"

(http://www.g-funk.net/200sx/2012-06-24%2011.09.48.jpg)

Next is I cleaned up the signals lights covers.
Before.
(http://www.g-funk.net/200sx/2012-06-17%2015.28.26.jpg)
After, 30 minutes of sanding.
(http://www.g-funk.net/200sx/2012-06-24%2016.23.29.jpg)

After that was put back together I couldn't start the car after trying to get it to short out.  I was still successful in doing so, so I went a head and cleaned up the cable after inspecting it.
I accidentally broke the connector that powers the Oil Pressure Sensor. So I fixed it by soldering it back together and added extra wire. Cleaned off the starter and all the connectors, re work the location of the power cable.

Zip Tied the cable away from the engine, and zip tied the fusible link connectors.

looked at it, put degreaser on the rims and sprayed them down, and drove around the block once and parked her in the driveway again. On the white one, figured out the timing belt was off a tooth and the EGR was stuck open during idle so it sounded carbeurated. capped off the egr and idles like a champ now, just need to see why theres not alot of power, unless im used to my VG lol

Pulled my exhaust today, I noticed a leak awhile ago... like 6 month ago. :lol:
Good thing I did it today though, there was like 5 good size cracks in it...

I guess that's what I get for not having a flex section, surprising that its lasted this long.

Took the time to wire wheel the rust off and repainted it with some 1200 degree paint.

Used this to test out my paintball co2 welding gas setup, works pretty good but those disposable cylinders don't last long.

Did an overall survey of the work I have to do. It desperately needs a tuneup, and a tankful of good gas.  Fixed some underhood wiring. Catalogued the spare parts that came with it. Discovered an exhaust leak at the end of the manifold -- needs a new gasket, which is fine 'cause the manifold has to come off anyway for some other work. Mainly, though, sat in the driver's seat making "vroom vroom" sounds.

Don't pretend like you've never done that.

Pulled apart my head light stock switch and found a broken piece that switches the light around.
Attempted to gorilla glue but it doesn't stick to plastic, then super glue doesn't want to allow pressure when I put the high beams on and off. So I JB Weld the stick back together, just waiting for it to "cure" before putting it back together.  Cleaned up the contacts while I am at it since it was dirty to all hell.

Cleaned up the last of the electrical gremlins, and unsealed the sunroof. The sunroof latch is kind of slack, so I'll have to shim that.

Thought about putting the interior back in to the S12, because if it's actually where it's supposed to be, it will be a hell of a lot easier to move.

And pretty much decided it's the best route to take.

Fixed the exhaust manifold head studs and remounted the exhaust manifold, then I discovered that the manifold-to-downpipe gasket has a big hole in it. So off to order one of those. One nice thing about my S12s P.O. is that he lubed everything to hold the rust back, and this has the side effect of there not being a single seized bolt in the car. My impact screwdriver and nut shearing set is feeling awfully lonely.

Nope. Used longer studs. There was enough threading at the back of the holes that I was able to get a good bite with the new studs. That and a combination of red Loctite and high temp sealant should keep 'em good and secure.

Also got an early Fox-body hood scoop (I believe it's from a '79 Capri, it had "turbo" badges on it) to cover the unsightly rust hole in the hood of my car. It fits perfectly. It's an excellent substitute for the OEM piece -- might even look better. Pics to come.

any sensors associated with that area that need to see the coolant? Also might be concerned about affecting flow and getting hot spot in front part of the block
