Yay updates. Wish I had some updates >.<

I thought Jim Berry was retiring back when I bought my clutch 4 years ago? Hahaha.....

Giving away any plans on the engine build? Should probably keep the stock bottom end and we can battle it out for fastest stock bottom end, Jim Berry clutched, R34 GTT with a sick kunt driving it :4_joy::4_joy:

Lol pull your finger out then!

He did retire, but still looks after existing clients and picks and chooses work to keep himself amused. I probably could have got a few more years out of the clutch but might as well make it fresh while its out.

Lol you can have that award all to yourself. The new engine will be far from stock... But look stock from a far ;)

Solid centre, that's why you kept blowing boxes!

Lol there is always one that has to start this argument :laugh:

I actually broke 2 boxes with the sprung centre and the recent failure was due to a selector issue which destroyed 4th and 5th gears.

Did you test it before you pulled it? What was it at

Towards the end i was just doing cold comp tests to make sure it was even across the 6 cylinders... So not a proper indication!

It was still fairly even but was in the 90s on cold tests which was another 10psi down through the year...

Got good news from Jim Berry last night... Clutch is in good nick!

The pads started at 8.05mm and after 4 years of abuse they are still only down to 7.95mm like new lol

The only damage on the clutch is from the incompetent idiot mechanic that dropped it at a certain workshop and then covered it up so i would never know, when i removed the box about a year later i was shocked! This is why i do most of my own mechanical these days! Hard to find reliable workshops!

I ground back the damage and cleaned it up and it still functional but one of the fingers was slightly bent so this has been repaired! I could get a whole new plate made but there is no need! Should be good for another few years at least!

So clean, machine and good to go again!

Ditto and a half!

I should rig up an alignment setup in the garage.

Actually alignments is one of the few things i do trust shops for as i get mine done at Road2Race Chassis Tuning in West Gosford.

Peter is a wealth of knowledge and extremely passionate when it comes to anything performance related!

He is very much like Jez in terms of advice, its no bull straight up honesty :D

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
