    Nissan LD28 Turbo you done it?

    Flush the block, fit the biggest radiator you can, wack in a 78 or 82C thermostat, run a 1/3 mix of HD antifreeze and a bottle of redline water wetter and you should easily keep the temps in check. They'll take a bar of boost all day as long as the turbo and intercooler are up to the task.

    Nissan LD28 Turbo you done it?

    The basic formula is: L20ET manifold TD03 turbo 10 psi wind fuel up The L20ET manifold requires slotting of holes and a bit of port matching. The L28ET manifold doesn't without hogging a shit load of metal out of the head. No.6 does get hot with a turbo so an intercooler and clearing out your coolant passages would be a good idea. 10 psi is a safe level of boost and will give you more kick, decent fuel economy, and only reduce your engine life a bit. The fuel screw on your pump will need adjusting for more fuel but it will smoke like a train off boost. I have heard of people running 20psi but not sure how long engine lasted. We've had a shit load of fun with @- i5oogt -'s LD28T Cedric but due to a crap cooling system its been overheated 1 too many times and the engine is a bit sick. So keep it at a normal operating temp and EGT below 650c and you should be sweet. But just remember you will shorten your engine life.
  4. Hi folks I have one gutless Nissan LD28 in my lovable Series 2A, SWB. I am interested in hearing from folks that have turbo'ed an LD28 back in tha day.. I am huntin a manifold to suit but keen to confirm what Z car or what ever turbo'ed Nissan manifold is a direct fit with minimal work to an LD28? Many thanks in advance, Bugly...
  5. I'm not sure if you can find that out. It would be recorded on the LANDATA system though.
  6. if its got any rust or previous repairs it will need a repair cert at re reg time I would suggest getting a repair certifier involved from the start- its cheap compared to stripping it again later if you try to sneak it through without, and the certifier wants it done slightly differently or wants to see it before paint etc
  7. I think that would be ok

    Hot dang! I was having a dig through the box of spares that came with WR and theres a couple of camshafts in there, a quick google of the part number on the exhaust cam and the fact it has an auto decomp mechanism thingy on it make me think its a HotCams aftermarket item which is excellent score as fitting that makes starting these things 10000 times easier than having to fuuuu round with the decomp lever. It has a bit of surface rust on it from storage but a soak in some vinegar should clean it up nicely Along with all the other bits in the parts collection including a factory service manual and some spare front sprockets to change the ratio is making this an even better value for money purchase
  11. Looks like someone tried to re register my new Morrie in 2016 It failed. I imagine due to rust and possibly wrong engine. Will it now be flagged for rust and il need a repair cert? I'm going to get replacement chassis horns and seemlessly replace the whole lot

    Glue some dirty Do Bro cans into the hole? Puncture bottom of can and drink goodness first and have lovely riptop left intact for full win. See you in a month and I will give you a hand, pretty big job eh.

    Lux's collection of crappy 2T nangs

    Added a bigdog dirt scooter to the nang collection today although this one does more of a brap than a nang. Im impressed to be honest for my first proper big bike. Has some fancy bits like a Trailtec Vapor Dash thats needs to be mounted so I can see it better plus get the tach working, aftermarket bars and some shiny bits on the engine. Came with a pile of spares and dirt rims with brand new tyres which will be handy when I wanna go adv boomer biking

    Nels Hb viva build

    Back in the late eighties I built a ford pop which I sold to a guy in Aussie. He contacted me the other day and sent a couple of photos through of it all painted. I had it finished in black primer so all he had to do was tear it down to paint an upholster. I had it roof chopped 3 inches and we channeled the body over the frame 3 inches also. ran a 302 Cleveland c4 and 9 inch. Came out pretty good I thought.

    I got me an air filter, just fits, hits the mudguard under full compression or full lock, but good enough. Also got a stand alone throttle, might bend the bend in the cable to straighten it up a bit. Couldn't find the banjo fittings I needed for the oil cooler, so cut up the std lines and a pair of hydraulic fittings from work. Easy flowed them together, neat. Fitted the oil cooler lines, fuel line and a few other bits n bobs (after stripping it to paint parts of the frame) and decided to play around with the wiring. Then realized there was no reason not to start it, so had a crack. 3 kicks and it was away. Haven't played with the carb, but it seems to run well and is super responsive/crisp. Muffler needs some packing or something, as it's stupid loud, which is understandable as it's just a ribbed tube at the moment. One thing I haven't worked out, is what these wire are for. They seem to put out about 4-5 volts at idle, and come out of the CDI. I was hoping one was the AC (charge coil?) out put, but that wouldn't come from the CDI would it? I think my motor may not have a charge coil, which I'll have to remedy. Yeh wires make no sense to me, lols. Regards, V "electronically impotent" G.
