  1. well don't have the money to go with a different ECU. I think either mount it through Radiator support in front of radiator ,intercooler, condenser or cut fender well and fab a shelf maybe. I know there are pictures around but the search is not working keep getting server error message.
  2. Started to put together my long stalled turbo swap in the 78 280Z and need some advice and pictures on where did you mount your AFM. I am keeping the AC and have an Intercooler so that doesn't leave much real estate for the Big AFM
  3. My gallery is gone, I just looked at all 62 listed and Mine is not there. I noticed that some old timers albums now say zero images? granted it probably been a few years since I added pictures but now it is gone. was this when we had to change systems?
  4. Exact same thing is happening to me, did you figure out the problem?
  5. I guess this is not an easy answer as nobody has even responded yet
  6. How do i send a donation in another members name?
  7. Looking for 8mm wheel spacers for the front of my 280Z, Don't want cheap slotted lug nut holes want the correct 4x114.3/4x4.5 holes. I will take 6mm, 7mm, 9mm but prefer 8mm. 10mm might get me some fender rubbing but will do as a last resort. Looked online and almost anything that had the right hole spacing was for the Nissan 66.1 bore, the Datsun was a 73mm bore. OH need longer studs also Please PM me or email me Thanks, Greg
  8. I made a tool to measure the break-away torque using the old R-200 diff stub axles a piece of Uni-strut and a large nut welded to the uni-strut. I elongated the holes in the Uni-strut to bolt up the stub axles. Actually the hole spacing works out so I can test again later at the wheel studs later once it is all installed. The test of just the CLSD assembly as shown in the pictures was 62Lbs. I then used my torque wrench and started at 25Lbs and increased it in 5 pound increments until I reached the point where it turned the axle then backed off a pound at a time to the point where it no longer turned the axle.
  9. Thought the upload froze as the last two pictures would not load so please delete the first two, the third one has all the pictures.
  10. Here s a series of pictures of the removal and rebuild, first the teardown I reloaded the diff in the order I posted earlier, here is how much the last spring plate stuck out over the housing. I oiled up the plates, clutches, and spring plates and attempted to put the cover on, it took me three times to get it on, i used bolts through the ring gear holes to SLOWLY and GENTLY compress the cover on. When I felt the cover giving resistance that seemed like pinching the tabs I stopped and started over again. Finally on the third try it compressed all the way without the spring plate tabs getting out of alignment. Picture of bolts used, Half turn of each bolt until it closed

  13. Thanks Jon, I'll try and get it together tonight, it is the last spring disc that will need to stay put over the tang slots as I squeeze the cover down slowly and pray it stays aligned. Not sure what you mean by flipping the housing, I flip it to get the first set of plates in then flip it back put the center section in and then the stack of plates and the cover? I'll post some pictures.
