Keep it in the Toyota family man! Datsun parts are cursed, your car will never work with an SR
Got some engine mounts for a JZS161, 100mm tall. Loved these mounts on my last setup!
All bolted up. Had to mark them up so that they are lined up ok, since they do not have locating dowels like the oem ones.
Cant wait to drop it in already. Just a few more bits to do before i can go ahead.
Got fuel hose and some of the fittings, still waiting on a few more to arrive and I can run the lines and modify the fuel pump.
Jites was kind enough to gift me some piping and s@3!
It will do to get the car running at first, but wont probably be the final result. At least I can spend the money where its needed now.
Got the PAS bracket/brace made up
Also sent the shifter housing to get extended last night!
Got an aux belt. Ordered 1880 but 1890mm arrived.
Its ok, but a bit loose. Ill get a shorter one and keep this one as a spare. You never know when you might need one.
Removed the stock fuel pressure regulator and replaced with a barbed push fitting.
Clears everything, should be ok.
Blanked off some pipes on the manifold that aren't needed. From memory, they are used for various things on the jzx100 which I don't have, such as the charcoal canister, heater switch, power steering idle up etc.... f*** that s@3!!
Got some flywheel bolts at last
The heater matrix hose on the jzx comes out on the different side to the Altezza. That means you have to route it back to the drivers side. Nothing exciting.
Got a fuel filter, but not sure if I will use it just yet, since I have one in the fuel tank, but I might need to remove it when I modify it. Will see. Better having one, than not!
Even time outside the garage is spent occupied with the conversion.
Body plugs, all repinned and marked up ready to be wired to the engine. These are responsible for a few things. Power to sensors, injectors, coilpacks, starter signal, oil pressure, alternator signal wires, gearbox speed and reverse sensors etc... These will be wired into the JZ plugs that dont
plug into the ECU on the engine loom.
So then it was time to remove the old fuel lines that will run on the exhaust side. Pain in the arse!
Main reason was because I couldn't drop the fuel tank down because all the bolts were grinded down from scraping them against the ground. Got them off in the end though
Once I removed stock lines, I had a think about where I was gonna run the new feed and return.
Decided, given the previous track record, that running them underneath the car could be risky. So ran them though the car using the opening for the altezza oxygen sensor.
Pikey'd a bit of pvc pipe to eliminate any sharp edges as they run through the bulkhead to prevent any fretting.
Same towards the back
All hidden away and not noticeable once the carpets are back in.
Thats about it for now
