    Manifold Water Circulation

    Hi All, Have been doing a bit of work on my SU's and manifolds, zinc plating and passivating various bits and in the process have discovered the connecting pipe which runs between both carbies is rusted out, as is one of the inlet pipes and two core plugs - one in the inlet manifold and one in the emissions manifold (yes, she's a 77 GSR30 2+2, complete with all the emissions gear). The pictures below show the story. I have a couple of questions: I read in a recent post (which I can't for the life of me find again) in which someone was querying where things went on the same carby

  4. Starting to unpick this rear quarter section. Was lucky enough to get this entire cut for $1,300 shipped from Japan in Aus!! Has rust in the usual spots but is free from any major damage. Luckily it includes all of the inner panels as well which I'll need for my build. Any sections I don't need, I'm happy to sell off to anyone in need.

  5. 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.

  6. I'm using this one from Trade Tools for a Toyota 12HT engine (about 330kg), really happy with it. https://www.tradetools.com/renegade-industrial-680kg-rolling-engine-stand Also using a standard ~450kg stand for my L28. I prefer the 680kg stand, think it is a much better design.

  7. Similar to what PB260Z said, you'll be fine with most stands. If you're really worried, the 2,000 lbs / 900 kg ones will suffice. If it helps, I have the Kincrome 907kg one which is not worth buying RRP for, but I purchased it for less than the price of ones at local autoparts stores because I used to work near their outlet centre and was friends with the staff. You can find ones with a similar design for a lot less that will do the same job.

  8. I have just have the one of Supercheap Auto ones, have used to hold a complete L28, including manifolds. Never had a problem with it Cheers PB

  10. I'm also working on a wheel. But I may need to redo the rim.
