  1. funny fact, the reason we didn't use pencils in space is because we did not want the pencil tip to break off and potentially get caught in the electronics or become a dust in zero g. Back to the point however I agree just use gloves, but if you REALLY REALLY want heated hands for some reason in a car just use hand warmers?
  2. so in theory, if you already have a factory 5 speed L20B, that trans will work with a 240sx ka24de engine? and you wouldn't have to modify the drive shaft. what clutch/ pressure plate would you use?
  3. Ya should have grabbed those tow mirrors on the Golden one in the last pic and that grill. Some people love those mirrors for some reason
  4. Did they ever claim the mounts? Lol
  5. Pretty cool of you to be doing a giveaway like this!
  6. yeah you are right fixing is always cheaper, but i am at a loss, i will check the secondary to see if it is open slightly, another symptom is when running at the high rev range, hitting throttle does nothing so it makes sense maybe secondary is stuck open.

    New Carb time?

    hey everyone so I am looking for some advice, awhile ago i took apart my stock hitachi carb to rebuild it and clean it out in hopes of making my truck run better. Well fast forward to about a month ago I have hooked everything back up, new fuel lines everything it doesn't want to start unless some starting fluid is used as well as it refuses to idle at anything less than 2400 rpm. ( usually starts at 3400 rpm until choke is open) So i am thinking i messed something up on reassembly, most likely fast idle cam? or it could be something even worse, i have a book but no idea how to adjust the fast idle cam it appears to just be limp, no tension on it. So to fix it i am either thinking bite the bullet and purchase a weber 32/36 and hopefully fix it or go through a service like carburetor exchange and receive a new hitachi carb that has been serviced and cleaned and guaranteed to be drop in ready. what are your thoughts? lets assume me taking aoart the stock carb i have messed it up beyond fixing
  8. You can sometimes find floor pans on eBay. They fit as well as you could imagine.
  9. I feel like I am just over complicating everything to be honest
  10. Very true. Only reason I asked was because since I have A/c the number 1 spark plug hole is blocked making the whole checking for tdc harder than it should be.
  11. So just wondering. If I take off the old distributor and set the new one like old and drop it in, I should in theory, not have to mess with timing at all. Right?
  12. I appreciate it datzenmike. I think I have all the info to make the leap onto EI. You have been a big help
  13. Okay cool. I think I’m going to spend the little more and get a remanufactured 79 distributor with the matchbox. As long as I line the new one up on the engine like the old one was I shouldn’t have to mess with timing at all right? That’s what I’m thinking.
  14. So so now your saying the timing plates might not be the same if I was to swap to that EI distributor? Also so I already picked up a new denso starter online. As well as replacing the positive terminal to starter. @datzenmike so that’s the style to go with? I did see oriely/ autozone do carry the 79 year with the matchbox style on the side. Would that be smarter to go with?
