    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Guess it's about time I do a build thread instead of throwing out bits of my stuff everywhere else. It's not going to be in any fucking order. I will post my currant accomplishments, and fill in once in a while with past doings. Just finished building my X8 clutch master cylinder, 3/4" bore to work with my Coleman coaxial throw-out bearing set-up. Rue enlightened me on the 5/8" bore master being a little on the weak side for dislacement. Trouble is, the run of the mill 3/4" masters here have the wrong reservoir for the X8. I know people cram them in, but I wanted the long angled reservoir that belongs on an X8 (same as the IS300 / Mk4 Supra). So after hours of surfing, I found that the Land Criusers in other parts of the world have the correct style of reservoir mount, and are 3/4" bore. So I found one, that is aluminum, and changed out the plastic from one of my spare IS masters. Had to make a spacer for the front, so that it would mount correctly, and used a 5mm stainless shcs, instead of the roll pin that comes from Toyota.

    'tis just a bump in the road.... The costs over purchase price seems steep, just a few months ago picked up some SSR 16x8s that final price was about $450 over purchase price. Typical price to have tires removed has been less that $100. Did you have them flown over, or a boat ride? Nice wheels though.

    SCG 6 piston bracket kit

    So I fucking missed one out of three....... Picture: Kind of helps stop fuckery, it's not like no one has ever got fucked on this site....... (also is just plain courteous, and makes good business sense) Location: Helps eliminate mystery factor. Supra Forums used to have a great for sale set of rules that cut way down on fuckery: Min 50 posts (hard to do here, since few newbs make half that before they bail on an X-chassis) Real Name Picture Price (He met 1, wow....) Location Contact info Maybe I'll just start making posts in this section with a title 'Cressida Part - $100', then never reply to any info requests.

    Good for you. Now, how about some info, Like where the fuck you are located. And a picture of said brackets. And maybe while you are at it, follow the rules of this forum, and post an intro.

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Well, they are a pain in the ass to dial in, and now I'm finding that they atomize so well that as the weather gets colder, and wetter, having ethanol in the fuel, the damn things will ice the fuel nozzles up, and start dropping cylinders. I have to pull over and let them thaw out. About a minute is all it take, and it will run fine again. The colder the weather, the slower I have to run without it icing up. Took the cold air feed hose off from taking air from ahead of the radiator, to putting it behind it, and it's better. But what the fuck, it's a Texas truck, not a Southern Canada (Wisconsin) truck. And it quite a bit faster than it was with a Weber DGV What weird, it now starts, and idles so much better. In the 15 years I've owned this rat, it has never idled, or started as nice as it does now.

    Since I've polluted this thread with Datsun stuff before, here is my latest addition to my rat truck: Vance & Hines drag bike carbs live !

    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    Works if you clean all the parts, and giving it enough time to set up. Did that on the rat Datsun truck of mine, with the only downside was the high durometer urethane that I used, that sat up like nylon. It transferred a lot of noise. Had to do this because of the difficulty of finding an OEM quality center bearing, which I finally did.

    Why does it sit lower in the rear, than in the front ?

  16. He's doing OK, swapping his MZ20, working on other people's wet dreams, possibly getting back together with the old girlfriend (they were never married). Someone should start a forum for ex-JZXP members.

    Why leave a review for him, he never bothers to come around here. Leave a review on facefuck.

    demogorgon15's trusty ol steed

    Really ? You put a StopTech (made in china) decal on Japanese made calipers ?? I think that will make the Z32 calipers work less efficiently. Nice file work, and is that real math I see scribbled on the brake adaptor paper work ? Puts you a step above most Cressida owners..... Wheel fitment over those calipers has never been an issue with any aftermarket wheel I've ever seen. Typical offset for wheels sold in Japan for the X8 is 7" 40 offset for the front, and 8" 45 offset for the rear. This is a bolt-on, no bodywork fitment.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Back when O-bubba came up with his bull shit health care plan (which doubled my health care costs), one of the arguments to it was the fact that people come to the US from Canada, just to get around the crappy system up there.

    If you have paint drying before contacting the surface, you are using the wrong thinner..... I have never seen a dryer actually bring air down that cold, and it seldom stays as cool as the dryer brings it down to for very long.
  21. You mean 'for sale' ?

    Looks like the down under members have been holding out on us, or just couldn't see what was under their own noses. Good find.
