  1. Thank you for the input, I will look in to it.
  2. Hello, just wanted to ask for some help finding new wheels. Currently I am running the Toyota s12w on the front and will be running the mustang brake set up on the rear. (Stock drums on rear as of now) I am running stock style 14 inch mesh wheels and have to run a thin spacer in the front to clear calipers. Once I upgrade to the rear mustang setup I will have to have atleast a 16 inch wheel. What I want to know is what wheel/tire dimensions I need to get. I do NOT want to run the spacers in the front anymore. Looking for wheels to clear front calipers with no spacer, be atleast 16 inch wheels and fit under my stock fenders. Am interested in Watanabe style Rota's for now. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. -Uri
  3. Yeeeeeesssss!! Another chance! Stay strong, brother. Very interested.
  4. Yes, pivot ball was exactly the same. Old one just had some wear marks on it. When the clutch was installed and in the car. I had to put in a much longer pushrod to even get the car into gear, but by doing that the TO bearing must be right up against the pressure plate and then it would get burnt out.
  5. My friend told me that I might have done that but when I pulled it all back out it was in the correct way.
  6. Yeah, it is strange. The old system worked fine except I had a leaking master and then the old disc broke a Marcel. But other than that the slave had a homemade push rod(bolt with head ground off).
  7. Old clutch does not meet your specification. While the new one does meet your specification, it did not disengage when installed.
  8. I have the pressure plate bolted to the flywheel and the assembly is up side down.
  9. So I got the measurements for both the old and new clutches and collars. I measured from outside flywheel(crank mounting surface) to outside of pressure plate fingers(TO Bearing side). Then I measured the TO bearing face to opposing collar flange. On the OLD clutch and collar totaled to just over 93 mm. The NEW clutch and collar totaled to about 103.5 mm. I am not sure if that is how I am supposed to measure it but those are the measurements I got.
  10. I was not aware of this. I will definitely measure this out. And get back to you. Thanks for the info.
  11. Yes, I did replace both the throwout bearing and collar. I got them both from Zcardepot and both were in factory Nissan packaging. The old and new collars are the same. I will take pictures of everything tomorrow.
  12. Both slave and master are both stock replacements. I know the master is 5/8, the slave seems to be the same diameter but it is not stamped. And neither are leaking. I tried some more things out but none lead to an answer. I put in a much longer pushrod for the slave(was VERY DIFFICULT to make fit and bolt up) and trans finally went into forward gears with a little bit of extra push on shifter, reverse grinded everytime and HARD to go in. Did not like that at all, didn't feel right. I was sure that the TO bearing would be pressing against fingers and then get burnt out fast. I pulled the trans out again and inspected further, I recompared the clutch old/new. I noticed that the new pressure plate fingers were just a hair over 1/4 inch further OUT from clutch disc than they were on the old. Just overlooked it the first time. My car was swapped with an L26 by previous owner, it's mated to a 4 speed. Is there a difference in clutches between 240z and 260z? The new clutch I got was for a 260z. It is a LuK clutch kit part #06-029.
  13. I have also swapped out the slave rod to a slightly longer one to try and still have the same problem.
