Ok where'd you find the wiper linkage bushing assortment number 49447? I think there's a store I need to visit in the near future

 

I think I got those at oreilly, but all the major parts places carry a similar assortment. 

 

 

I haven't been on here in years. I remember seeing you post this build up.

 

Glad someone stayed motivated! =d

 

 

Welcome back. :)

Battery tie down came in.

Got the hinge points sealed up and the hood back on. Dipped the end of the hinges and the shoulder bolts in the grease before installation.

Figured out that the solenoid was at a funky angle and the side loading was what led to the failure.

 

Was able to just redrill the upper hole and get everything lined up.

Then I went for a spin, even got to test the wipers. :D

Goal for the rear brakes is a functional ebrake.

 

More to come.

Got the rears mounted. I was going to make a bracket, but got lazy. BEEBANI to the rescue lol. 
 
I still need to come up with a lever arm for the e-brake, but it looks simple enough once I get there. Unfortunately I now have to replace the brand new clutch master that I just installed. :( 
 
Anyways here are the pics I have. I just realized I don't have a pic of the finished master...it looks like stock anyways :)
 

 

Crusty bits

All cleaned up

New bearings were required.

Some paint to keep the rust at bay.

Need some way to mount these.

Thanks BEE

Some assembly required.

Had to add a tab to hold the line on this side.

I'd like to get a bigger master. What year car should I order for?

 

I believe that is 1979-81 280ZX master cylinder.

 

Then you can get the fluid reservours from Nissans later in the 1980's. 1982+ 280ZX has a larger reservoir but don't use the master cylinder from those years, only from the years I specified.

It is a 1979-81 280ZX, like Bleach says. They are getting difficult to locate as they are a popular master. 

 

 

Every reservoir I've checked from Datsun/Nissan vehicles have all interchanged on this style of m/c's......so it's really easy to find used reservoirs.

 

Yep, I just swapped over the old reservoirs from the stock master.

That is good to know. :thumbup:

 

The later style uses horizontal mounting.

oh wow, out of stock at Rock Auto. I have seen a couple of these master cylinders in the last year in wrecking yards. I didn't buy any of them.

Unfortunately I think those cars are crushed by now.

If you use an 81 B310 booster you will have access to many more master cylinders as the 310 booster is a horizantal master cylinder mount.  You will have to extend the brake rod for this booster.

Thanks for the info. What did you do with the load sensing module under the truck? Still there or long gone?

 

I just bled per the service manual. The process is different than one would assume, which might explain all the issues people have. I know I was never doing it correctly. :lol:

Great tech :thumbup:

 

 

Steve,  Al Allen is selling a Wilwood unit that looks like the OEM units and bolts right up.  I used one on Paul's (79D50) '76.

 

 

I will keep that in mind next time I am braking something :)

Took the truck for a drive to pick up parts from the laser cutter. The brakes work fantastic.

The clutch is pissing me off.  I have had my hands on three new aftermarket clutch masters and all of the push rods are too short. I got that all handled and now the slave is leaking. :rolleyes: 

 

Anyways got a few pics while I was out and about.
