  1. How about a Hitachi SU? Aka flat top from 260z? They have an accelerator pump. People think they are shit, but they are just 40 years old and need a re kit.

    Brake imbalance

    Has it got abs? Might need 'cycling' to free it up?

    SR20DE -> SR20DET ECU wiring

    Look up nico club forum. They had all the fsm's for all the different years and models I did the same on heaps of rb's 10-15 years ago and it was usually just a few pins difference. I think it's way easier to have the correct loom if you are trying to run a stock ecu as there are sometimes random resistors taped into the loom in different models
  4. Are the brake lines to the cylinders metric or imperial? Pre 71 cedrics had imperial fittings. 71 on had metric.

  6. Drill a hole in ya thermostat so it can flow during warm up and don't tell ya old man?
  7. You will need that water return to allow water to circulate while it warms up before the thermostat opens. Otherwise you will get hot spots where the water will boil

    Old balancer no longer true/slipped around a bit on the rubber? I have seen it a few times on various old cars. Need to take out front spark plug and stick a bolt in and find true tdc. /saw a cool video of some diesel bogans and they had a magnetic degree wheel that they just slapped on the balancer. Also have my own problems sneezing out the carb. Think its air leaks from worn throttle shaft or the flogged out hole
  11. Are you just replacing the rod and piston? I have a 4.5 crank, rods, and pistons you can have. I believe it's a bolt in into the 4.1 block.
  12. yea, start at the highest nipple and work ya way down so your not pushing air down.
  13. Can you shorten the rod from the pedal to the master a bit. Sounds like it needs to go back a bit to let the pressure out.

    Welder buying spam

    One of our guys in the heavy fab shop has a hugong something like that ad. He uses it for tig and stick. Usually wound right up. For hours at a time. Has had a few minor issues. He purchased through duroweld in new plymouth. The 3 years commercial warranty was the main selling point. Any issues he just takes it back and they have sorted it.
