Hi all!) At first, i`m from Ukraine.
At second: sorry about my mistakes, if you see it. English is not my native language, but i try to loarn him
Soo.. This is my R30. I buy him a year ago. Last owner take him from Japan in 2000. It`s a 72 years old man. Use it once\twice at monts. 30 000 kilomiters about 15 years! But he had a wet garage=(
He sold this car to me for 1350$. In baggage compartment i found a half of front suspension, nice bonus
What i have: Skyline R30(FJR30). CA18S, Twin Spark, original karburator Hitachi, twin shock absorber in rear suspension, power steering, air conditioning (need to fix)
Love the old looking skylines
passion for skylines
Wow you did well to find that, what a nitemare job though....
I can`t find a tub at that day. Try solder, but it`s didn`t works Coz it`s not a cuprum, tub with composition metal. And car must be used in next day. Outside was -9c. I have a child. So in car must be comfortable
At summer i will be repair a body. Demontage all salon, soo i change hose to tubs
What is it? Factory alarm? Plastic 1 : 1 like in the salon. Only the color is different.
Finally still warmer. Сarburetor for long winter almost the first time provides a low, barely audible near the minimum idle 650rpm. Beauty! And consumption is less, I am happy. However, not everything is so beautiful. Sometimes the engine at traffic lights showed no stable job, stalled a couple of times. I opened the hood, poor contact of one of the spark, because of a broken probe head....
Do not hold the wire, and as I understand it, there is no thread, she refused to be wound. Drew, as i could, engine work stability. Spark should be changed...
On this trouble is not ended, drip tank, at the very bottom. It has already been fixed with sealant, evidently, it is necessary to close up again to flow.
On this of all poor. Now for the good, I fix a distant light!)
Light in all four "eyes". It was in the relay contacts which I cleaned, as well as the metal(!) shielding, all carefully cleaned inside and back it without this ****.

In fact, the whole car - it`s a job) A little here, a little there...
For now I in search of repair kits of breaks, karburator, etc.
