lol. probability is high.

 

 

I need to get the hard parts before I worry about it though.  AEM infinity + custom harness is quite a load of cash as is the EFR turbo and ID injectors.  Im not doing it any other way, so I will wait until I have the bits.

Cars plated, good to drive without getting hassled by popopo now.

 

The car feels a lot nicer with the bearings in the uprights done.  Just need to get the rear toe arm that is bent and get an alignment.

The car being a street car Im considering changing the XM 0 ackerman knuckles for stock ackerman or even totally stock units since I don't really need the extra steering angle.  It feels fine for now, so I will probably just leave it alone.

Street style 100%

Car had a misfire yesterday and back a few weeks ago when I was driving it on temporary plates.  Was fine yesterday afternoon and this morning.  will have to keep an eye on it.

 

Wideband was reading fine 10.5:1-11.5:1 when it was missing when going from cruising to boost. almost had the feeling of a boost leak being a MAF car, but everything looks fine.

Could be moisture in the ignition being that the car is parked outside and it was raining the last few days with the vented hood. Havent pulled the cover to check.

still no more misfire.

 

Rear toe rod on its way from Gordo.  Then I can do an alignment.

Still quite a bit of vibration from the rear >90km/h.  going to rebuild the spare Torsen and check the 1 piece driveshaft joints and pinion angle/trans angle when I change it out.

 

 

Does the weir solid input shaft collar work on the X8 rear diff?  I guess I can inquire with them.  Bill mentioned I should probably reset/check the pinion on the torsen, so I will do the solid pinion spacers and go over the pinon/ring gear to clean/polish them.  Made a huge difference on my Miata to have the gears polished for NVH.

Car is making a mean grinding in the left wheel area.

 

Took a quick peek and the brakes weren't rubbing but there was a slight wheel wobble in 1 axis, so I need to do a wheel bearing before I drive it much more.

Huge grindy click noise once a rotation that you can feel through the car.

 

Originally thought it was the brakes because it feels like a warped rotor, but with the car in the air nothing is touching.

 

am I loosing my mind?

Losing your mind is part of the package.

Not sure if this is a new noise, but likely related to the stuff I told you I heard once in a while.

"Welcome to the cressida ring of death"




take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.

Cressida ring of fire right now is just a smoldering pile of metal.

 

 

-problem was that the rear brake adapters are a bit too short for the Nissan calipers AND the holes for the caliper hardware are 30% bigger than required.  the braking forces must have pulled the caliper in to the shortest it can with the bolt being too small for the hole and were rubbing the inside radius of the caliper on the rotor.  problem #1 "fixed" when I spaced it out.  long term fix im going to have to make new brackets that space the caliper out a bit more.   I assume that the caliper brackets were designed for r32 calipers and I have z32.  bill gave me the Japanese document for the adapter, but I haven't checked to see if it says anything obvious like that. anyways, they aren't perfect so I will be making a CAD drawing of what I need and send it out to the machine shop when I take the car off the road for winter or if the problem comes back before then.

-the looseness I saw in the wheel was the rear upper control arm. great. lol

 

 

I kind of wish it was just the wheel bearing and not these two things.

 

 

 

 

confirmed with weir that their solid spacer system works with Cressida diff, so I will be ordering one of those at some point in the next few weeks to set up the torsen and toss that in.

Along with a set of diff carrier bearings too. Pretty sure the seals are new.

I bought the gold calipers from Y!JA as R32 fresh rebuilds with powder coat that were super cheap, I think I payed like $80 total shipped from Japan through WheelChoice back then.

I hope the car catches fire, so we don't have to read this dribble any longer......

 

The R/Z rear calipers are identical.

I have the exact same adapters, and everything fits just fine.

30% larger holes ?

 

You know, stop assuming that you are diagnosing things correctly, and put up a few pictures.

 

No, wait, don't.....

I'm don't fucking care. I do way more than my share of hand holding over on SupraForums, and do any of the idiot newbs ever listen ?

Fuck no, they listen to some buddy who has worked on cheezy chevys all his life, and after they reach 100 posts, they start putting their 2 cents in everyone's conversation, even though their own car doesn't run.

Just burn the car, and put us out of our misery.

Better yet, someone just do it for him.

 

Let us know when this whole CAD thing happens, should be good for a laugh.

 

I'm sorry I woke up this morning now.......

I'm going back to bed.

Maybe when I wake up again, some of your writing will make sense.

LOL, no coffee in me when I typed it.

 

 

in a I didn't really give a fuck enough to measure, say the hole for the caliper in the adapter is 1/2" but should have been 5/16" for the caliper bolt.  it gives enough movement for the caliper to rub on the rotor.  the rotors don't sit 100% true either, being that the hub bore is a bit larger than the Cressida bore.  a tin shim was noticed in one side when I did the LCA bearing, but not the other.  surprisingly this was the side with the shim.

when I held the caliper in my hand there was obvious grinding to the inside of the caliper, so its a proper diagnosis.  I also took the caliper and the rotor off, put some wheel spacers on the hub face so the wheel didn't hit the coils without the rotor on and tightened it up.  there was no rubbing without the brakes on. putting the rotor on after that without the caliper no grinding.  To make sure if it started to grind again, I put some sharpie where the grind marks were to show if there was any new grinding inside the caliper vs whats already happened.  but the drive into work this morning was pretty uneventful, so I found the issue.

 

Rear calipers being the same is good to know. hadn't cared to look, im not buying new so it doesn't matter.

 

 

I can send you the CAD file when I get it done, I know you do machine work Gordo.  My files are generally ultra basic, the more detail I add the more my machine shop charges and these parts are the most basic things going.

You have the wrong calipers.......

 

No Z32, R32 caliper has that small of bolt holding it on.

No wonder wheel choice is gone.......

I guess I am confusing you G.

 

I know the bolt isn't that small, im saying the hole in the bracket is the wrong size by a step or two and that was describing it for you in American.

if the m10 bolt needs a 31/64" through hole, the hole in the bracket is the much more common 5/8" and it makes the caliper sloppy on the bracket.  sloppy enough that it can rub the caliper on the rotor.

Would you like fucking stop.

Go buy so mother fucking digital calipers.

5/8" ??

Impossible.......

 

And stop with the fucking fractions in a system you don't understand.

It may come to a surprise to you, but me, and most other Americans on this forum understand the metric system,

probably better than you.......

ok, no meausrements taken so if you leave them out... here is a graphical representation of whats happening.  for what its worth I am showing the 31/64" vs the 5/8" here which is the problem im having.

 

FWIW, the bracket is just a hole.  the caliper has the thread.  Maybe that's why you say "not possible".

If you didn't take any measurements where did you calculate your 30% larger hole diameter from?

Again you are illustrating the whole new level of fucking retarded you are achieving.

"that was describing it for you in American"

Because obviously machining one-off parts for Japanese cars we've never had the need to understand the metric system.

Where's fucking Bill at??? Why aren't you blowing up his phone with all of your stupid shit so he will be the only one who must suffer through your bullshit.

Will never know what the fuck he was thinking when he said you'd do alright with the car... Fucking retards

Can't wait to see how your CAD drawing compares to Demesio's... but let's be honest... you'll probably one-up him in the "I don't know what the fuck I'm doing" department.

Fuck... just fuck...
