    lz22 headgasket problems

    l16 housing and no. i just pulled the spark plug on cylinder number 4 and cranked the engine. it shot out some coolant. so its blown again. same cylinder as always. could the fuel ratio cause the head gasket to break? i might be running too rich. either way, ill be ordering a nismo gasket and trying that out. if it pops again, ill take the engine to my machinist and have him take a look.

    lz22 headgasket problems

    it would tend to overheat with the 195 one(maybe it was 185). it loved the 165 one. never went past the halfway mark until it overheated this one time. used complete block, z22e all stock rebuilt 3k miles ago.

    lz22 headgasket problems

    im running a w53 and it lasted the longest with the 165 thermostat. and the radiator is brand new. was thinking about running the nismo head gasket and calling it a day

    lz22 headgasket problems

    ive gone through 3 head gaskets in about 3k miles. it runs great for about 1k miles, then start idling low(then goes to a slight misfire), starts over pressurizing the cooling system, and eats through coolant somewhat quickly. ran fine until a few days ago. so ive gone through everything and had my block and head inspect multiple times and there are no cracks. im using arp head studs im using the z22e felpro headgasket(modied for the l16 head), but 2 out of 3 have blown from the stock drilled holes, not the modified ones. ive used copper gasket on 2 and none on the third. always follow the torque spec/pattern. always retorque after a heat cycle and full cool down. just checked the head studs to make sure they are still to torque spec and they are. the engine has less than 5k miles on it(new pistons, rings, bearings, etc....) the head and block both got resurfaced right before this third one. both were checked for warping and both were fine. the head was rebuilt about 3k miles ago when i first built this engine(new valves, new valve guides, 3 angle valve job, new valve stem seals) also using a koyorad, 1250cfm electric fan, and 165 degree thermostat. havent done a compression check yet, but from past experiences, this is another blown head gasket. im running out of patience with this engine. could too much fuel/ bad cam timing, or bad distributor timing cause this? too much fuel for the cylinder? any other suggestions? its not a crack or else it would run like shit from the start. i always make sure its warm before i start driving.

    ka24/280zx hybrid trans in 510 which speed sensor

    well ive never had the speedometer read accurately in general, i just wanted to use it. troy ermish helped me take measurements and we looked around and figured out that any z car 5 speed pinion sleeve worked. and my apologies for the incorrect terminology. not exactly my specialty. haha
  6. as the title states, im running a ka24de transmission from a 240sx(s14) with my LZ22 and im curious as to which speed sensor i use to run a cable driven speedometer(stock). the ka24de trans speed sensor is for an electronic speedometer(electronic harness). i tried fitting the stock 4 speed sensor in, but it stuck out too far and im pretty sure the gear would get chewed up.

    so i rolled it her...... =[ (now build thread)

    the gear ratio is awesome considering the engine has the torque to push it. great on the freeway too! thanks again randy!

    280zx turbo tranny on lz22

    Well I'd like to have a full 5th gear. I plan to cam my lz22 in the near future. I also have a r180 with a 3.3 gearing and I'd love to get a close ratio gear box. What would you guys suggest?

    Sweeeeet. I'm not worried about the weight. I just want a 5 speed. Thank you for the quick response!

    So it won't bolt up to a lz22?

    280zx turbo tranny on lz22

    So I've heard that the transmission to get (if you want a full 5 speed) is the 83 non turbo 280zx 5 speed. But what is the difference between the non turbo and turbo tranny?

    so i havent done any major photo drops recently, but here ya go. engine is in, running strong, and still turning heads. wiring harness is tucked and working perfectly. no issues. not bad for my first tuck! car back on the road. blew up the stock diff. this lz22 is no joke! went and upgraded to a r180 and welded it up so i dont get stuck on driveways anymore. haha bad tires + massive camber + welded diff = bad time. had to go all hover craft mode and get her new tires. got the new tires on and the front air dam riveted back on. PHOTO DUMP!!!!! went to a car show at my brothers' high school. ended up winning "Best Hoopty" category. hahahaha
