What Did You Do On Your Z Today?

Recommended Posts

I used a fine hacksaw and a gas torch to remove mine (carefully burnt the rubber bushing cores out). A long slow but effective process. That was more than 3 decades ago, they were well seized up when the car was only about 12 yrs old.

I installed new pins and bushings with generous amounts of copper grease as advised by a mechanic friend. They are still free to this day, I've checked. I wonder whether Nissan used any lubricant at all.

Drove it for the first time ever!

Picked up my engine on Saturday, installed it yesterday and hopefully have it all wired and ready for a retune and run in next weekend.

Sometimes they come free with ease. Other times you need to force them out and can be a massive pain in the butt.

are new pins readily available locally ?


Genuine Nissan or SW Motorsport.

FWIW I never have an issue with them - a 20T press and heating the housing with the oxy gets them out.
