General Performance / RB20 Cranks

Is an RB20DE crank the same as an RB20DET?

If not, does anyone have a 20det one for sale? :)

General Skyline Discussion / Rebuild or replace?
« on: December 15, 2009, 05:29:04 PM »
Just picked up a reasonably tidy R32 gtst for next to nothing.
However previous owners said it ran out of oil, and doesnt start.
Can turn it over by hand - freely for about 3/4 of a turn, then its *really* tight. Checked the bores are clear.
I'm figuring bigends are stuffed.

Wondering what I would be looking at ballpark for a bottom end rebuild.

Or would it be better to just stick a 2nd hand one in?

Obviously rebuild will be the best option, but I'm trying to keep costs down atm.  If necessary I can do it myself, but tbh I'm lazy :laugh:

Anyone know a decent place that wont charge the earth in the Waikato region?
Or anyone happen to have an engine (complete or just bottom end) in reasonable condition for cheap? :)

General Performance / Arrrgh! what happened to my 34?!

it may also be held in by a couple of 8 or 10mm bolts .. have a close look at it. if it is, the bolts will be thru the 'legs' of the fuse.

General Performance / RPM needle

primera's & pulsars do it all the time. easiest way to fix it is to replace the cluster, its not really something you can fix yourself. if you want to repair your cluster, you have to get it sent away & it will probably take about a week or so to fix, and cost about 3-500. We usually do several a year, customers always get pissed off at the cost.

Maintenance & Car Care / WOF issue
« on: July 08, 2008, 02:11:36 PM »
reading must be taken 0.5m from exhaust tip, at 45deg angle, 200mm above ground.
at 3000rpm for 6cylinder car.
as for certing it, there will be (or is already) a special exhaust cert you can get.
fairly sure you its just a LVV cert tho, any place that does certs willbe able to tell you

Waikato / BOP / Hamilton 13th JUNE

went along for a look.
TONS of cars, but the cops came & shut it down fairly early on, apparently the owners of the base wanted to charge everyone with trespass.

Maintenance & Car Care / my AC fan doesnt want to work??
« on: June 17, 2008, 08:02:42 PM »
compressor wont run all the time.
check to see if the fan is free to spin, also, unplug it & check if its got power to it when you turn AC on, if it doesnt, then time to check fuses.

General Skyline Discussion / What's it worth?

Wow, thats weird as, must have been cached, cos when i posted that bump there was no reply to my original post.

Thanks tho, that seems to be roughly what my own research had turned up.
Shame its less than half what it owes me :(
Don't really want to part with her, but I may not have a lot of choice in the near future. :(
