ok, too clutch out to change spigot bush- you know they are only $4 at nissan lol. $15 each from other parts suppliers lol.
same part number for all l series, ca and rb 30 too(well thats what the nissan guy told me- theres a tip)
so took clutch off and glad i did, found this damage to clutch spings
no damage to flywheel that i could see but that side of clutch faces the fly wheel. so there is a potential rattle.
only spare clutch plate i have is a 4 puck brass solid center jobby. in its going.
so packed the end of crank where spigot is with grease by finger (i dont have a grease gun still) and tapped in the input shaft. poped out the spigot, but only half came out...wtf. regreased tapped in sahft again rest comes out
now hydraulic lock wont cause that to happen that i know of so spigot was shot (slightly out of round too) glad i took it out, need to put new one in later but is soaking in fluid overnight to help it in.
so i undid the flywheel, bolt by bolt,cleaned the thread and re loc tighed it.... it wason tight so i shouldnt have worried but good to check and wasnt too hard to do. torqued it up to 110ft lb (what a pita)
so thought id set up stumpy for insertion. my practice is to make sure gbox fill and drain plugs can come out before i put a box in.
fill bolt was tight, but got it off easy enough. drain pulg was slightly rounded and tight. looked like some kind of sealer on it. sprayed wd40 and let soak for 1 hour. tried to undo, no go. thought nip it up 1/8 turn then try. no good. thought id try tapping with my newly aquired nylon hammer to shock then breaker bar, no good and it strited the block bit in the pulg!!! F@%$#
now how do i get it out? just weld a block of steel or a socket onto it and try crack the seal? heat up the nut with a butane torch as well?
ive got a spare plug on another 63a... the measure the same, so should work. im at a loss now. it was rounded slightly before but now ive stuffed it... help!
