    Just bought a 521

    Everything else is already removed, including the 3rd gear relay. I’m running a matchbox anyway. I believe the part throttle switch was on the Hitachi linkage itself, which I removed a while back. I can’t figure out how an idle switch and a part throttle switch would work together, but who knows. I pulled it out of the firewall, and the pedal no longer gets hung up. And of course it’s some oddball fine thread so I have nothing in my stash to plug it with.

    Is the limit switch at the top of the gas pedal linkage part of the emissions system? (Blue wire with red stripe.) My switch gets hot and stuck, which prevents my truck from returning to idle.
  3. Same color? What are you thinking? My vote is for Millenium Jade metallic. I've also really contemplated painting my roadster with Midnight Purple II (LV4), but it would be stupid expensive.
  4. Comments redacted. Sorry Neil.
  5. They work on your truck, they're just regular 60 degree conical seat, which most aftermarket aluminum rims use. You can use bulge or regular, but the bulge better protects the rim from the corners of the hex.
  6. Yeah, that's where I'm getting them from. Their "filter" tool works really well for narrowing down options. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/gor-91177bc There's also these. Only 3 reviews, but they're all positive. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cal-754102b
  7. I just added 6 packs of Gorilla bulge hex-style to my cart and they’re $60 with shipping. I just put a similar style on my RS Watanabes and you can tell the plating is thicker or something.
  8. Okay, thanks. I have the same style right now. I’ve noticed that Gorilla makes the same ones, and I swear that they seem to hold up better. I had the Gorilla brand on my Frontier and they never rusted.
  9. Do you remember what black-colored lug nuts you are using? Are they holding up? I got the "spline" type on my truck right now and they're rusting already. I want them to be black, but hold up better.
  10. I guess? Unfortunately it's the car of choice for the trust-fund vape-smoking type.
  11. I wasn't going to say it, but they're called lesbarus for a reason. Keep an eye on the oil level (which I'm sure you do). They like to mysteriously consume it.
  12. Looks like you're the proud new owner of a Subaru! (I'm sorry.)

    Polished aluminum won’t hold up unless you keep polishing it. It oxidizes quite readily.

    Part of the problem is that he's one of very few vendors when it comes to Roadster parts. He has actually had parts remanufactured that are NLA, so you just need to work around his personality to get stuff that you really need.

    Gotcha. I think you'll be fine either way. I put the Exedy 05022 in my truck, but I think that's the regular duty version. I figured it'll hold the gerbil power that my engine puts out. Yeah, Dean is a bit of an asshole at times. And by that I mean all the time. I only buy from him if I really have to.

    I believe Dean sells genuine Nissan 650kg pressure plates with an Exedy friction disc. That eBay link says 600kg, and everything is Exedy. That’s the brand I used when I had my transmission out. Seems like good quality stuff.

    Yep. Great price too.

    Yes, they do. It’s not cheap, but neither is the Redline or Amsoil.

    You can always just get the GL-4 manual trans fluid from the dealer. I’ve tried Amsoil and Redline. They don’t really make any difference in these old transmissions.
  21. That’s the same size I run. It seems to look and work really well. I do get rubbing, but I’m a -19 offset.

    At a bare minimum, I would check it as best as possible, and replace the input and output shaft seals.
  23. If people are so hell bent against China, might as well throw out all your consumer electronics.
  24. Jesus man, great stuff.
  25. The VG33 will go down as one of the shittiest Nissan motors ever made. Even the supercharged version sucked.
