Has anyone seen how the Economonitor worked. That's the round gauge next to the speedo in the early car. I think a series of light rings changed colour with the change in engine vacuum, as it was connected to the manifold by a rubber hose. The only Sunny I had that had one was my early (11/78) Panel Van, & it didn't work. Changed it out for a Coupe dash with a tacho, then a complete late model dash from door to door with the late coupe cluster.

Tom, what's the capacity limit of the class you run? I assume it's 2.5 litres due to all the L series cars. Also, is there/ what is the multiplication factor for turbocharging. In Australia its 1.7m so an 1171 A12 is 1.990 litres. A 1488 cc A15 is 2.530 litres, however a 1390 cc A14 is 2.360 litres. So that A15 might be too big. I'd hate to get banned for 30 cc's. Wasn't somebody selling an A14 crank in the classifieds? My hope would be a turbo A14, but even an A12 would be sweet. Can't imagine what the reaction from the 'Grunter' runners would be like.

PS a Grunter is what the big bore long stroke L series engines were called back in Group G rallying. Most runners found it cheaper to run rotary's.

They're going to want to decrease the size of the restrictor plate now . It sounds like the piston broke off the top half, I know of a class 1 off road racer who used to do this with his A series motors, but it was with standard pistons, if you can believe. Hope to see Jordan in the car at Clipsal Adelaide for the Improved Production races.

I've replaced the fusible link in my B310's with a fusible link from the N12 Pulsar, which was easy when they were in every wrecking yard. This also gave an extra battery outlet for accessories. I think they sold this car in the US as a 310. Sounds like you fixed this problem already. As for the misfire, check the coil, as it could be breaking down. If it doesn't cure the problem, at least you've got a new coil.

I've had this happen with DGV's as well, the throttle sticks, so I loosened the nut & it then fell off. I've found there's a difference between the weber supplied nut & the Nissan one. The Weber one had a bit of drag on it, probably by design. So I used a Weber nut, plus a second one to act as a lock nut. I could also have used the locking tab that came with the standard carburettor.

The last time I had a car move around like that, it had a flat tyre. if I lowered the tyre pressures too low whilst drag racing, the rims would move side ways in the tyre, as the rims were too narrow. Maybe you need to put wider rims on the back, or bring the pressures up slightly. I run 6 1/2 wide rims on a 195 tyre or 7 inch wide on a 205. that's what it looks like to me, at least.
Or that rear axle problem needs further taming.

Is there any possibility of fitting another engine loom, preferably from a manual car, which would remove the jumper wires you should have on the safety starter switch. When I fitted a manual to an auto Sunny there I modified the wires going to the neutral switch by putting jumper wires on a matching plug, or else the car wouldn't have started. Maybe the motor was earthing through the solenoid wire, which is what appears to have burnt out. Maybe Dapto wreckers has something, or any of the other wreckers near you. I don't know of any Sunny's here in Sydney, but maybe the wreckers at Cooma has something. I once had a 1200 loom burn out due to the cigarette lighter wire shorting out. I had to through the complete loom away due to the damage it did.

If I did it wasn't by much. I remember 4 washers & the auto & 60 series crossmembers have 4 bolts. I used standard length bolts, so it wasn't much.

What sort of leverage ($) would it take to get that 3.45? it'd go nicely with an L20B & a slippery diff in a Sunny sedan. Is it a ring & pinion or a complete centre. The slipper is wearing a 3.7 ratio at the moment.
