    Just another(LOOK AT ME!!!) 69 DIME build thread.

    Ok. So im in a jam. Literally. Here's the problem. Ill TRY and keep it simple. I just finished installing a lightened fly wheel and clutch into my 69 510 with an l20b. Clutch is for a 70-74 240-260z. Flywheel is for a non turbo z. 225mm. Put it all together with no hiccups. Went to start the car and nothing. Starter solenoid clicks, but wont turn the motor. I figured the battery was dead so im charging it as we speak. I tried to use the "engine start" function on the battery charger and still nothing. Just a solenoid click. Car drove and started before i replaced the clutch. Im wondering if the ring gear is a different pattern than my original flywheel. Any chance of that?? The motor will turn over with a wrench on the crank pulley. Im frustrated to no end with this thing. I just want to get it on the road. HELP!!!!! Edit: so its not the battery and the starter actually works. To clarify i bought a new battery, and pulled the starter to watch the gear spin and jump in and out. The starter will not physically move the flywheel. I even bought a new starter out of an 83 zx to see if that would help...

    So, just a quick update. Ordered a lightened flywheel from California datsun and a clutch kit from zcarsource. Clutch arrived, just waiting on the flywheel. Here is a screenshot of what i ordered Just a quick question. Anyone forsee a problem with this setup? My one concern is the to bearing sleeve, i.e. is mine the right length.. if you guys need a measurement of the sleeve length i can get that info ma簽ana. Any and all is appreciated. Thanks

    I know at least in my line of work (high rises, bridges, anything iron) we do not re use torqued bolts. Its no biggie. Im in there, i dont mind spending the money for peace of mind...blah blah blah.

    Al- u minium flywheel questions.

    Ya, sorry for the double topic. I was just taking another members advice. When i removed the presure plate (from the 6 bolt holes) i noticed there were no screw holes for any type of steel insert. Oh well. I plan to order SOME type of flywheel this week. Be it z or 200sx. Since i have the opportunity to be picky, i may do the roadster clutch setup.. just for sh!ts and giggles.

    Right outta highschool i worked in a machine shop. Learned to bake blocks, rebuild heads, turn rotors, drums, FLYWHEELS among other things. And thats how we turned our flywheels, on a horizontal machine with a grinding head. When the dude put it on the lathe i kinda scratched my head, but thought he knew what he was doing, and it being aluminum i thought that maybe made a difference to. As in maybe its an easier way to cut the surface. I dont know. What i do know is yes, its an expensive problem, and a learning curve. But hey, i wanted a project. Just not an aluminum flywheel with no steel insert. On to ordering parts...

    Yeah, sounds like a plan. Im in the bay area. So it's really not that bad a drive. I am running a (i believe) stock four speed. I plan to measure out my 5 speed, its just buried at the moment. Ill probably re use my "original to me" collar since the car seemed to shift fine. If not, ill figure something out.

    Sounds good to me mike. Again, thanks for all your wisdom and help. Wish i could buy ya a beer. Ill order a flywheel here in a day or so. Now, what do i do for bolts for the flywheel.. arp doesnt list them.

    I mean if i get a z flywheel, do i order a z clutch set, or a clutch set from whatever vehicle the l20b was from. Be it 510, 200sx blah blah blah...

    So that begs the question... what clutch set do i get. The tranny is a four speed. Po said it was "original" tranny. He also said the clutch was new....... Can/should i re use my collar for the to bearing. Mike i've seen your pics posted years back of all the different height collars. This has me concerened ill be chasing collars across the globe.

    Al- u minium flywheel questions.

    My question... what kind of clutch set should i buy for an aluminum flywheel. Oe material, or the expensive "race, performance" clutch set. Motor runs, thats all i know. Small history, i just removed the tranny, clutch flywheel today and had it turned due to a 3/16 grove cut into the wheel the full diameter of the clutch disc, 7 7/8. Car did drive prior to signs of clutch slipping. I did adjust the slave cylinder rod first. In my build thread Banzai510 and i discussed this. He thinks heat is a factor. I agree... machinist caught that it was aluminum and said it was a "high performance, race" flywheel. But should still work. He also said that the aluminum had been hardened on the surface where the disc rubs. Here are pics of after. I dont have any before. I can say this, there is no steel ring plate that screws onto the area where the clutch disc rides.
