R33 Rb30det Drift Build In The Nt. 350z 6 Speed

Recommended Posts

Cheers, pretty stoked with how it turned out

Can't go wrong with vinyl when it comes to cost either; just under $400 was enough to get the whole car done.

Handled delaminated tyres, fuel, heat and more like a champ :D

Got all of the little dramas from Matsuri fixed up, so tomorrow morning I'm off to a morning session at QR :D

 

Crossmember rack mounts moved 25mm forward

Thanks to the trusty engine crane and seatbelts

BAM, and the bind is gone!

Also fixed a heap of little things, so pretty keen to get it out there again:banana:

Headed out to QR last night, unfortunately after an hour of track time the oil pump gave up (suspected) :down:

My brother was driving at the time, but gopro footage shows about 3-4 seconds at about 2000rpm before he realised what the alarm was and turned the engine off.

Towed back to the pits and (after confirming there was no leaks from hoses and the sump was full) cranked it without ignition which revealed a really fast ticking noise and no build in oil pressure, so I'm pretty confident the pump gears shit themselves for some reason. :ermm:

So...
The plan is to remove the oil pump with the engine in the car and see what exactly I'm dealing with. Hopefully the crank collar is ok.

Any (relatively) cheap dry sump setups for sale? :laugh:

Tear down BEGIN!

Rounding evident on the collar

Pump is rooted

I think I'll get some Perspex and hang this on my wall...

WP_20161218_16_18_39_Rich.jpgWP_20161218_16_32_39_Rich.jpg

 

So I'll be removing the crank to fix up the collar (spline drive this time).
New bearings throughout and fixing anything else I might find along the way.

I get to give myself my own Christmas presents :laugh:

Cut up some Lexan and now I have an artsy oil pump on display :laugh:

Will remove the engine and begin a proper tear down on Thursday or Friday, yay...

Ripped the engine and box out over the Christmas holidays, everything is looking pretty good considering the failure

Had to get the grinder out to cut the cam cap baffle plate nuts off, dam things just spun. Raw Brokerage is the only place I could find online that sell the bolts, anyone know a better place?



Clutch is struggling with 4th gear, but it will do until a new turbo setup comes along

Big ends are looking healthy :happy:

A bit of emery paper and the cams will come up a treat

WP_20161225_18_12_26_Rich.jpg

 

Crank will get a polish while it's getting the spline collar installed

WP_20161226_10_17_40_Rich.jpg

 

All the bearings, plastigauge, lube, Loctite, gaskets and fluids are either in the post or sitting in the shed... so as soon as everything arrives I can put her back together again. Hopefully around the start of Feb

 

While I was bored (after ripping everything apart), I started mounting up a front splitter. Curious to see how it will go :laugh:

Tomei do a stud and nut kit (pretty sure it's just rebranded ARP) that replaces all the bolts with studs. perfect run or RHD Japan 

Part numbers for washer that goes between the cam cap and bolt 01311-00711, bolt 13058-59S00, the washer on top of the baffle plate 08915-4361A, spring washer 08915-1361A and the nut 08911-20610. The place to get them would be Amayama or RHD Japan.

Could you do me a favor and measure the height of your flywheel?

Sweet as, thanks for that

Flywheel is 46mm tall when measured from the outside, and 43mm tall when measured through the flywheel bolt holes

Dropped off the crank and spline drive to the machinist shop yesterday

Unfortunately the crack testing revealed some pretty bad cracking around the No.6 big end and main.

Luckily a mate has a good condition crank (will get it crack tested to make sure), so fingers crossed everything goes smoothly with this one

 

Found a pic of one of the last laps before the pump gave out :laugh:15977738_1911247445774485_1615082053375432178_n.jpg

What oil pump was it? Stock RB30 or aftermarket ?

Aftermarket crank collar with a N1 pump and billet gears

I was planning on laying heat reflective tape over it for the first couple track days, to see how it goes before committing to something more substantial.
I'll be keeping a close eye on it, but if that isn't good enough I might just bite the bullet straight up.

Yeah, well worth doing if you have the patience for it :happy:

I did the inside of the ridges in the below pic as one sheet, then I layed the whole side of the car from the A pillar back with one sheet; which slightly overlapped the wrap on the centre of the roof.

Thanks, a YouTube tutorial was my only previous experience :laugh:

Faintly visible cracking in the pic. It looked pretty impressive with the dye penetrant glowing under the UV light

Good news for the other crank though, just waiting on the collar to be fitted :D

I'm planning to do the Spool spline gear oil pump as well, I'm assuming the crank needs to be machined down and then the gear is pressed on?
