    I got a batch of lighter pistons

    In the grand scheme of things, the cost to balance a rotating assembly is pretty low, and is worth doing. Especially if you're changing out the clutch/flywheel and crank pulley (unless using a Fluidampr pulley).

    Hey at least you can use your printer to make a pedal stop.

    Freeze the adapter and heat up the flywheel. Then you're only friction fitting against one thing. That does sound rough. I sold my CD008 and Maverick adapter after running into literally every problem you just typed out. I just ordered my OSGiken twin plate, they swapped to the Corvette hub for me for free. So it's bolt on and uses a Honda Civic pilot bearing. Now if I was doing it again, I'd buy the kit for the CD/JK trans that has you cutting off the factory housing and bolts to a J1/J2 housing. It lets you do the same thing, order off the shelf multi plate, switch to a Nissan hub. Find a pilot bearing with the right od/id and your up and running.

    That drive shaft cost is what pushed me firmly over to the TR6060 camp. Slip yoke was so much cheaper and easily available. My delta printer is a D300VS+. I can squeeze about 17" tall parts on it as long as they are 11" or smaller in diameter.

    Time to bust out those 3d Printing skills you've been working on and print some covers out of TPU. They should be durable and heat resistant enough to last. That's what I'm going to be doing. I planned to send you some stl's but after having to undergo another round of ankle surgery, I got bored. This was the result.

    One trick I've done for the shifter side is use a long bolt that threads into the shifter plate cover. From inside the cab of the car you take a board and your long bolt and use that to hold the rear up. Board Bridges the gap for the shifter. Then you can loosen/tighten the bolt and use washers to dial in the height of the tail side if the trans. Makes making the mounts easier.

    Clutch pilot bearing removal

    That sucks man. Nothing more frustrating than a dumb little thing holding up progress.

    Clutch pilot bearing removal

    It can't squish out, the bearing assembly is too tight for the paper to get in there, give it a shot and post the pictures. It took me two sheets of news paper to get mine out.

    Clutch pilot bearing removal

    News paper bro. Just soak it and stuff it, then to compress it use a socket and tap it down (socket needs to fit inside the pilot bearing). I used this method to remove a pilot bearing that rusted to the crank after sitting for only God knows how long (ma70 Supra block).

    Use of a torque plate?

    1. I didn't bother with that, we just pressure washed the gasket to make sure no dirt that could pit the head/block was on there. 2. The machine shop that did mine torqued them down.

    Use of a torque plate?

    It's not that. The torque plate simulates the head. You don't put the head on without a gasket. For that reason, you don't put a torque plate on without a gasket, as it's no longer accurately simulating the head.

    Use of a torque plate?

    A gasket between the torque plate and motor is required. If you've got a new mls gasket use it. The risk there is it getting damaged, being clamped and reclamped later with the head isn't a big deal.

    Use of a torque plate?

    It's absolutely worth doing. You can rent one from Suprastore, and it's a pretty painless process. Just be sure to save the old head gasket to use with the plate.
  14. If you don't care about weight get steel lug nuts. Aluminum ones will have issues over time and nothing is more frustrating than having the threads on your aluminum lug nut strip. Muteki and Gorilla are easy to find in multiple colors and are made of steel. Personally I'd avoid red anodized ones, they turn pink after some time in the sun.

    Rb26dett and AC?

    There's a pretty good write up someone did with a vintage air unit. Personally I'd buy that unit and have the lines made to go from your RB compressor to it. http://xenonzcar.com/s30/files/DatsunZ_Vintage_Air_1000.pdf
