    Silvermine Motors Z car brake upgrades

    sorry for bringing this old thread back, but i wanted to know what size wheels you are running? I am planning to buy brake upgrades for my 510 soon, and have been considering these same kits from SMM. But i am running 14x7 Enkei 92 mesh wheels, and i want ot make sure that they're going to fit prior to buying.
  2. sorry, this is a pretty N00b-like topic... I just acquired a load of A-series stuff, in hopes of saving a few items for myself and planning to sell the rest. I don't own a 1200 yet, but i am hoping to pick one up this year at some point and wanted to collect the pieces to build a good motor. here is the link to my ad: http://community.ratsun.net/classifieds/item/8161-truckload-of-a-series-engines-transmissions-and-parts/ bought all of the stuff from Dave Carroll in seattle, many of you may know him. anyways, like i said, i am new to A-series and to 1200's (i've been an L-series 510 guy for the past decade), just looking for some insight and advice on what to ask for each of the pieces. I have sifted through the Datsun1200.com wiki pages a little bit to try and figure some of it out, but some of it can be confusing. also if anyone has any interest, go ahead and contact me! roast away...

    Feeler: 89MM L20B Headgaskets

    wish i had seen this a few weeks ago, i was looking for an MLS gasket... obviously no one really makes them. I went ahead and bought a NISMO gasket. I am not sure why people are saying that Nismo doesnt make them anymore... i just went to the dealer and had my parts guy order one directly from nismo. it was like $92 after tax and shipping from midwest.
  8. absolutely, i am going to look into that.
  9. datzenmike can probably shed more light on it than I, but essentially it helps make a better seal by more pressure crushed around each of the cylinders. used a lot in high compression N/A engines and turbo/supercharged applications. I am working on a turbo/efi L20b right now.
  10. yeah, i am going to ask around. ive seen that a lot of bmw guys are into the Isky tool though? with good results too. http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?1532029-ORings-The-consolidated-thread looks pretty good? the tool is about $300-340 depending on where you buy from.
  11. i know where to buy them, just curious if anyone has done it, how they liked the results, and if they would rent it out?
  12. in seattle area, just finished paying off wolfman for all his L-series turbo stuff! now i need something i can rebuild to throw it all on:0) have a lot of random stuff and a little bit of monies, call text or pm me plz. 425-366-6387
