  1. If the yellow line is on the top - the highest part, then there. But I would think it would be a flat gasket, maybe 6mm wide and 1.5mm thick, stuck up in the lid against the inside top.
  2. I never leave a manual parked in gear. Accidental key turning can result in panel damage because there is no neutral inhibit on a manual. The handbrake is there for a reason.
  3. The lid gasket would pretty clearly go in the part of the lid that contacts the top edge of the reserviour......
  4. Maybe. Although it is so much more likely NOT to be dirty. It is much more likely to be a bad solder joint inside it onto the loom plug contacts. Google fixing that. Has to be cut open and soldered by someone who has enough of an idea what they're doing. And then siliconed closed again. Again, maybe. The coils might be fine. It could be dirty/broken loom plugs here too. Swappsies with a known good set of coils is the only/best way to try to pin it on the coils or related wiring.
  5. If you're going to balance the rotating assembly, then you need to balance the whole rotating assembly. In an ideal build, you balance the pistons so that they are all the same weight, you balance the rods so that they are all the same and the piston/rod combos are the same. Then you balance the crank with the assumption that the identical piston/rod combo is hanging off of each. There is no way that you would go to the effort of balancing the crank to suit unmatched piston/rod combos. By the same token, the are any number of engines that have been slung back together with completely unmatched/unbalanced parts. It's all a matter of what you want to achieve. Bazzilion revs? Balance it. Minimise losses? Balance it? Drive it to the shops below 4000rpm 99% of the time? Save some money (by not spending as much on balancing).
  6. Do you know what detonation sounds like? Do you know what lean backfires sound like? Do you know how to google to put it into diagnostic mode and find out what the ECU is trying to tell you?
  7. When do you get the 3 lights? Why not just put it into diagnostic mode and count the blinks? Could be coils. Could be AFM or CAS connectors also, bad solder joints, etc. These sometimes act up as they get warm if they are not in good condition.
  8. No, it's a normal thing for leaving your car hanging on the bloody gearbox instead of the handbrake. FFS.
  9. All the Skyline seats bolt there. The difference in R34 seats (from R32/3) is the front left is at a different height.
  10. A. Is there any length difference between any part of any of them (sedan and coupe, 33 and 34)? B. If no, then use any part from any of them. C: If yes, then whether you can use the front part from a 33 will depend on whether the front parts are the same length between 33 and 34. Given that I was under the understanding that 33 and 34 chassis was essentially the same thing and that sedan and coupe were the same wheelbase, I would be surprised if you couldn't mix and match. Don't take this as a categorical answer though.
  11. I can't see any difference in your potato photos. Completely different angles, etc etc. Supposedly, the difference between the earlier and later RB20DET/RB25DE style boxes was the doubled synchros. I knew nothing about any gears being different.
  12. Anything other than a proper weld and paint is only to be considered as a temporary "fix".
  13. If those are on eBay listings, then #1 identifies one gearbox that a place is selling and the same time as they are selling another gearbox identified as #2.
  14. Given that the 300C was fully imported, there is absolutely no chance that the parts to suit the Jap models won't fit.
  15. Maybe 25. If there were any for sale anywhere. What's weird at the moment is the stark difference between one bloated whale R33 GTST for sale for 17k and another for 35. Equally unpalatable to me.....yet 100% price difference. And then the GTRs for 80-300k.
  16. What country? With stupid COVID tax, or waiting until that goes away a bit?
  17. You do know that they don't really come off the gearbox, right?
  18. If you just want to raise the boost, don't f**k about with trying to fit an adjustable actuator. Just put a bleeder on it (replace the stock boost solenoid with the bleeder setup) or an electronic boost controller (Profec, etc) and turn it up to no more than 10 psi. Plus what Ben said. There's no benefit to messing with the BOV anyway, and I should refuse to call it a BOV, because in reality it is a compressor bypass valve. Something you should be familiar with in supercharged applications.
  19. No, not true. What is true is that the high load high rpm corner of the fuel map is disgustingly rich and the equivalent corner of the ignition map is disgustingly retarded. This means that the engine will drink fuel, make black smoke and no more power as you increase boost above ~ 10 psi. It becomes pointless. And there's nothing you can do to fix it (easily) in an R33 ECU, because there's no easy reprogramming option. R32 and R34 will happily take a Nistune board. R33 (ECU) is the red headed step child that no-one loves.
  20. Really? France. The home of Renault. 50% of Nissan-Renault.
