  1. I probably should have just responded to him with that rule, written in Norwegian lol Apologies
  2. For those that are interested...when I opened the post and saw it wasn't in English, I used Google to translate the OP's question as follows "Hello. I have a 1970 240Z with the RB25det engine. Now I have punched a hole in the oil sump. I think there is an RD28 oil sump fitted, but I'm not sure. I see that many people write that they use RB20 with rear sump. Does anyone have any suggestions where I can get a new oil sump that is bolted on, not aluminium." I then used Google again to compose a response...which ened up being a little laborious as the formatting from Google to in here was completely off...so I first had to paste to a Word doc, then format, then paste in here...fun times! If your bored you can use Google to translate my answer 😂
  3. Hei, når du sier at mange skriver at de bruker RB20 oljepanne med baksump, er jeg usikker på hva du mener...Så vidt jeg vet har RB20-motorer en kum foran.. Som jeg er sikker på at du vet, er en av de viktigste punktene som må tas opp når du bytter en RB-motor til et S30-chassis oljepannen, siden RB-motoren har en frontsump som ikke passer inn i et S30-chassis fordi den vil treffe tverrbjelken. Som et resultat er det nødvendig med en spesialtilpasset oljepanne, og fordi den er tilpasset er den oftest laget av aluminium. En av de vanligste løsningene var en spesialtilpasset panne laget av McKinney (Jeg har en på bilen min), vist her: https://rawbrokerage.com/products/mckinney-rear-sump-oil-pan-rb20-rb25-rb26-rb30?_pos=1&_sid=7f566dbe2&_ss=r Dessverre eksisterer ikke dette selskapet lenger... Jeg jobber med en ny motor for å sette inn i bilen min og ønsket en oljepanne med større kapasitet og planla å kjøpe en annen McKinney-panne og modifisere den...det var da jeg oppdaget at de ikke lenger produseres. Den eneste andre pannen jeg er klar over for dette byttet er en enhet solgt av CXRacing...Jeg kjøpte en og den var $600 (6421.38 Krone) helt bortkastet. Bortsett fra det faktum at det er et forferdelig kvalitetsstykke laget i Kina...Flensen passet ikke engang til blokken. Som et resultat er jeg i ferd med å lage en fra begynnelsen. Det er et annet alternativ jeg er klar over, som er en støpejernspanne laget i Japan, som er laget for å passe til RB, men den har en bakre sump: https://upgarageusa.com/products/jhk-rear-sump-rb-cast-oil-pan Vær imidlertid oppmerksom på at den kun har en kapasitet på cirka 4,73 liter ...så hvis du har en motor med høy hestekrefter vil dette være utilstrekkelig. Men hvis motoren din ikke er svært modifisert, vil dette passe dine behov. Lykke til og tilgi dårlig grammatikk, eller hvis dette ikke gir fullstendig mening... Jeg brukte Google Translate til å skrive svaret mitt! sen.
  4. Beautiful car! But almost a year with no update? Tsk tsk... Let us know how it's working out!
  5. Unfortunately I don't have any insight for you...but I wanted to say welcome back, it's great to hear from you... If I had a wish, it would be for these forums to be as active as they used to be...so much incredible info here...but FB/IG seemingly have killed its utility.
  6. Wow $1,100? that's crazy... good for you on getting it so cheap! Build is looking sweet!
  7. Wow, I admire your diligence...while I personally agree wholeheartedly with Zestaz regarding getting a shell in better condition...at the end of the day, when your beauty is all done an driving, you will have a much more visceral connection to her knowing the amount of incredibly detailed work you put into it...
  8. I haven't used it personally, but I've seen a lot of people using/recommending POR-15 and seeming to have great success with it.
  9. You know, sadly it seems there is very little traffic in here nowadays...is FB the culprit in the slow demise of online forums?
  10. I second this motion (although I'm not holding out hope 7 years later lol)...this is a fantastic write up well ahead of its time...with RB's becoming more prevalent than ever, this is very apropos.
  11. This thread is full of fantastic information...thanks for all of your research!
  12. This is from the pinned thread...I know it basically just reiterates what you already know... If you don't have a freeze plug in that location, your block will have a casting spot (basically the same size as the hole where your dipstick currently enters the block) toward the rear passenger side of your block (where a freeze plug went on RB25's)...You would need to get the right size freeze plug for your current dipstick location (the front of the block), and before they plug that location (front of the block), measure the diameter of the hole and machine one the same size at the rear of the block where the casting indentation is... Do you have a pic of the block on the passenger side?
  13. Very impressive! Are you in more episodes? If so, what numbers/air dates?
