I did the same thing; got the brakes in top order, then swapped them out for better stuff.

Its nice to see progress. Mine is just kept in running order until hopefully I get to upgrading it.

After weeks of searching, I was able to track down a reman rack.



I bought a set of S13 knuckles from a local drift buddy in my area, which was also sort of difficult to track down.



After much debate, I decided to go with Z32 brakes for my S13 knuckle conversion.  Go big or go home, right?



Though it's sort of going to be a shame to get rid of these nice new stock calipers.





And of course everything was seized because old Nissan.  But eventually it all came apart.  I took all the hardware and bracketry that came with the brakes and toss them in the tumbler for the day.







Excited to start putting all this stuff together.

Drivetrain Tech / Slave Bleeding
« Last post by david mandel on Today at 07:58:03 AM »
1988 200 SX coupe, 4 cylinder, 5-speed manual. Clutch problem. Purchased in 1996 with 30K miles. Still only 30K miles. Clutch pedal always felt weak (little resistance). Now there is almost no resistance. Gear shifter "works" with the engine off if clutch pedal is or is not depressed. Engine starts in Neutral but then can not engage any gears. New Master, slave and rubber hose to slave installed. Was told that slave has not been bled properly. Told that clutch fork must be pried back away from slave pin to permit full extension and full insertion of pin into slave body to permit bleeding.
Please advise on how to properly bleed the slave cylinder.
Thank you,
David Mandel

Nice little story, certain elements of which reflect my own S12 story.

Welcome back.

Cool!

Looks like a good project with some cool mods already there from what I can see. Its not easy finding vintage steel in the north east.

Thanks for the kind words!  My goal here is to do everything I always wish I had the first time around.

Quick update:  I made the decision to convert to S13 knuckles to help expand my options for the future regarding suspension mods and adjustability.  I then subsequently spent more than the price of the car in parts that are arriving piece by piece.  I'll take some pictures of the new stuff and the progress over the weekend.  I'm very excited about this!

ENGINE (OEM): CA20E Tech / Re: Odd Idle Under Braking Issue
« Last post by Thatmint200 on 07:26:02 PM / 10-May-19  »
sit with the car idle and warm then quickly and with a lot of force pump the brakes. If you can pump it till the car dies or you notice a SIGNIFICANT change in idle, you have a vacuum leak. If this doesnt change your idle, then something about the momentum is causing it to die. To me it sounds electrical as if something is making contact, then not making contact once you are pushing momentum forward. Check your ECU is securely mounted to the chassis as the CA and KA ECU's get ground signal through the ECU body itself, not just through the ground wires.

The registration process is the most important i think. It took me 3 emails and joining the facebook group before i could get an account made on the forums. Just being able to make an account from your Facebook login information would be super helpful for capturing new users.
