  1. Not really sure , that's my next step. I personally think it was stuck out and not working correct for years... And I freed it up... and I can only assume it got stuck again.... there must be some corrosion in the hole.... By Mike's picture there is a hole that might be the indicator.... I have a small mirror, I'm gonna try to take a look and see where it is and if I can get it out with a magnet.... And to this part of your comment you lost me..... "In your image above, you can't see where that plug goes because it's way down above the bushing for the companion flange. Plus, the only sign of it is the small drilled thru-hole that intersects with the striking rod hole, so it would be more visible from the back." I definitely posted the wrong image, In my pic I thing that rod with the stuff attached has to be disassembled from the inside first... I dont know any of the names of things so it's hard for me to describe.... I get what's going just need to figure the fix without having to remove or disassemble the transmission .....

    What is this?

    Probably gonna have to what Mike says.... unless you find an old stock.... Looks to be discontinued.... I think this is the nissan part number you want....
  3. Ok so back to the problem, what should I do? Does that little plug at the end of the spring need to come out? Could it have gotten misaligned?
  4. Oh I know what that spot is.... that's where that little item that prevents shifting from 5th directly to reverse....
  5. Is that even the right spot or is it located further up in the tail sectiont from this view....
  6. This is good to know because mine does not self center.... So that might be something... Sounds like I should have tried to free that piece up..... So would it be that area in the upper right.... I guess I did remove it.... Does the arm its suppose touch look correct? I mean like length and that end.... Could that little end cap get miss aligned?
  7. And no I did have to remove the transmission, I was lucky enough to have enough room to remove the plug...
  8. Ok well I couldn't leave things alone.. I had a thought and sure enough I found the problem.... Whatever is under here..... Once I removed the plug and the spring I was able to get it into 5th and reverse no problem.... I think there is something in the hole, a plunger of some sort, but I never removed it.... i did remove the plug and spring during disassembly and cleaned inside, but never removed whatever was in there... when it was on the bench I saw it moving out when I messed with the shifter and I could push it in but i couldn't remove it.... I figured since it was moving in and out that it was good.... I didnt get to put the spring back in and test the shifter, once I knew what was wrong I was satisfied.... I'll finish things up another day... So what going on? Why did it get stuck? And it did work before, because I do remember now testing to see if the brake light switch worked....
  9. Well it was not the hole..... there is inches of clearance all around.... Looks like I have no choice but to pull the transmission out..... So disappointing...... I figure I'll have a look under the front cover and a couple other external things, but I'll bet I have to split the case again to really see what's up.... that's gonna suck if that's true.... oh well done for today....
  10. Any chance its inside out? Not even sure if that's possible just popped into my head..... On my 521 I actually just made one for the steering column out of some thick rubber..... the 521 has a trim piece that holds it in place..... Sometimes you have to get creative... I actually am using some small block Chevy valve cover breather grommets to run wires through a couple of my fire wall holes....
  11. Crossing my fingers that's the case.....
  12. I'm sure the clutch collar and arm are correct, same set I've always ran with my clutch..... It does engage and release proper, I just put too much foot to the pedal....
  13. Oh while I'm sharing stories this happened at work today...... After I got back to my machine I text my friend this.... I just got stuck in the bathroom with a bloody nose And some just blew up the toilet next to me.... Had to plug both sides for the smell.... Should have know the day wasnt gonna end well..... Goodnight to all I'll try again tomorrow..
  14. You are correct on reverse.... the one just above is I believe 3rd gear and connected to the emissions stuff and ya you deleted all that so not needed.... I have 2 - 4 spds, the one from my truck and a spare for parts and neither of them have the one up by the shifter so not sure there..... If it is neutral then it's just another safety interlock... I have the location but it's not drilled.... I wonder if its factory or if someone added that.... And sorry I only have 1 of the breathers or I would have hooked you up.....
  15. This is what I'm afraid of.... I'll get things exposed and see what I find.... if I'm hitting something it should be pretty obvious.... if not I'll have no choice but to pull it back out and have a look..... just sucks..... really hopeing its something stupid at this point, but I doubt I'm that lucky .....
  16. No the mount is good... freshly made and installed.. transmission didnt move... truck hasn't left garage since the swap.... My cover for the trans and the boot aren't original, kind of a cobbled together mess of parts.... On the slave I am using the threaded adjustable one, it was just not adjusted properly, or should I say at all.... I kind of just eye balled it.... I knew I need to adjust it later but when I couldnt get it into reverse I tried pushing the clutch in harder like it was gonna actually do something to help.... well It did... it caused the slave piston to extend to far and get stuck out... got lucky and was able to get it back in with a light tap of my rubber mallet... atleast then I could drive the truck back in the garage.... I'll have to check and make sure i didnt rip the seal....
  17. Well this is not the post I was hoping for today....... I got out of work a little early and it was almost 50 degrees out, I had about 30 minutes before i had to pick my son up so i figured why not get a test ride done around town and surprise him by picking him up in the datsun.... Well I got the surprise... it wont go into reverse or 5th..... wtf..... then the clutch pedal got stuck down, piston in the slave over extended and was leaking fluid.. I was able to pop it back in, guess it needs to be adjusted better.. seems like I have some more work to do ... back in the garage it goes.... Then i proceeded to step on a broom which poked me in the eye.... If that's not enough.... i got my work stuff out of my Chevy to go in the house and when I went to shut my door i slipped on ice and slammed my leg in thw truck door.... Fuck me ... and this all happened within 15 minutes.... As far as the transmission problem goes I'm really hoping it has something to do with my boot cover or tunnel plate..... I tested the gear shifting on the bench before I ever put it in the truck , all good.... Then I tested it while still on jack stands.... everthing worked..... Everthing buttoned up and back on the ground now no 5th or reverse.... I cant even get the shifter to move far enough over , it only goes to where 3rd and 4th are..... Hopefully this is something stupid and simple and the transmission doesnt have to come back out... Hope everyone enjoyed....

    Headlights Problem

    Could he use dielectric grease one the brass ring?
  19. You can get it repaired, cleaned and coated if needed.... I think I paid about 250 to have mine fixed up... They cleaned the inside, and coated it, and welded in a new pickup tube fitting. Then I used a slightly larger threaded marine pickup tube...
  20. It's a header with a 2.5 diameter out, with a reducer to 2".....
  21. I think I'll stick with the 2" pipes idea, and I found a resonator and muffler with 2 1/4 in/out..... What I'll probably do is see if i can make some simple changes ... install the resonator and new muffler and see how it sounds.... then secure it all properly where I really want it with some new tubes and proper bends... Thanks for everyone's input....
  22. You mean for all the piping from the header to the tail pipe? Or just after the muffler?
  23. Thanks everyone.... gives me a bit to think about, and answers a few questions I've had. I'm thinking I might try moving my current setup around to see how it sounds..... Technically the stack is a home made resonator, so I'll put that before the muffler and the muffler will be behind the axle mounted left to right.... exhaust exiting out back instead of next to my head..... I still want to buy a new muffler because of placement and piping, the current muffler has the in/out on the same end so I could make that stack. In the end the hope is to make 2 exhaust tips exiting the rear sides behind the rear wheels... one side muffler and the other side an electric exhaust cutout.....
  24. This is the stuff I'm currently using.... This is the insert, fit the inside of a 2.5 exhaust pipe....
  25. Thanks this is some of the info I was hoping for.... I might trying adding a resonator next to the trans as a temporary trial/ solution... just to see if it helps the sound.... Either way I wanna redo the system, but it sounds like I could benefit from a resonator.... I would still need a new muffler so I'll be looking at these .... Probably something with 2 1/4 in/out.... Should I also go bigger on the resonator or would 2" be better?
