  1. Yesterday
  2. But you are coming back next year to do it again, right!
  3. Welcome to old age. Still nothing compared to what a lapping day does to me. I was a whiny baby on Friday at RacerXX.

    differential noise

    Pulled out that MFer last night. 3hrs of quality time, laying under, by, near or close to the car. Today I feel like I was wrestling sea lion yesterday. I need full body massage. lol.
  5. I am not sure what you are referring to? There is no "bolt" to take off after installation. There is a small "key" factory inserted in the top of the CCT to maintain internal tension. That key is simple pulled out after installation to release the spring tension of the CCT itself. If you pull the key out before installation, it will not install properly. It is possible to rewind up the internal spring with a small screwdriver in order to complete the proper install. Then just remove the screwdriver after installation. If this does not make sense to you then refer to the CCT installation thread that has pictures and better explanations or give me a call. PS there is a small screw-on cap that covers the key hole after the key is removed. Simple transfer the cap from the old CCT over to the new CCT. It is simply a dust/moisture cover.
  6. Some have installed an 18t front sprocket. Another option is the stock 17 and drop a couple off the back. I think the stock set up in the US is 17/45, and the Euro is 17/44 which makes the speedo pretty accurate instead of reading way over.
  7. Last week
  8. John in your picture I don’t see the bolt you take off after install. Then again I am not mechanical inclined I might just order one for the he’ll of it. also trying to do research on sprocket chain set for the bird. I want it lower rpm on highway
  9. We featured her last week on http://cumguzzlinggrannies.com I think.
  10. thanks! while downtown san jose has it's charms, like plenty of bars, restaurants and other entertainment venues, it's being overrun by the mentally ill and homeless. there are also scenes like this on my way to work... was she trying to tell me i have a hot dog hanging out of my mouth?! no progress on the blackbird last weekend. had to chase down a parasitic electrical draw (& replace a 6 year old battery) on our '98 e430. turned out to be another hvac blower motor resistor gone bad... no word from jt regarding their inspection of the chain but, it only arrived to their lab friday...
  11. I just ran mine down far enough to put in 6 gallons in. Before I did that I saw just enough gas to top off that little cylinder that the fuel pump sits in. Before i did that I touched the pegs to the ground on the left and the right side, nether emptied the gas stuck in the little pockets. I guess I calculate an honest 6.2 usable gallons depending on how much gas displaces that cylinder at the bottom.
  12. You did it the hard and expensive way. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/NCB65148?cid=paidsearch_shopping_dcoe_google_monthly-special_201909&gclid=Cj0KCQjwuZDtBRDvARIsAPXFx3DeO0yaB60UxsvZAQsv8dhzQJLwXRVzVPqqwbxVwfGx2VXVgAUwIlQaAgDwEALw_wcB
  13. Pour 3.874 metric ounces of acetone into the gear oil and it'll clean everything out making it work like new. But really, my guess is on the pinion bearings. I don't know that diff, but from others I've messed with what you describe makes me think pinion bearing. If it has a driveshaft carrier bearing then I'd start there.

    Hail dents

    I feel for ya. When I was stationed in Oklahoma we got caught in a severe hailstorm. Just as the hail began falling we pulled into a Dog & Suds under the canopy. We had no damage. The hail was the size of golf balls. After it was all over we saw the damage to the cars, it looked like someone took a ball peen hammer to the bodywork. We were very fortunate. I had a 1969 Chevelle Supersport, SS396, 375 HP, 4-SPD, 3.73 gears. It was a beast!!

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    I just started my XX up and it is very quiet. Because the noise increases gradually I had no idea how bad it was. It has 29,003 miles on it. I just started Jackie's 2001 XX with 17,972 miles and it is very quiet. My other 97XX with 25,052 miles, not so much. It too needs a new CCT.

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    Here are pics of the old and new CCT The old one, pink dot was installed with 8mm bolts, the new one came with allen head bolts. The old one has a bolt in the end of it. Am I supposed to have a bolt for the new one?

    differential noise

    87-88 are clutch lockers, 89-91 viscous. LSD on former has probably stopped working long time ago. Rebuild kits are no longer available from Mazda. Carriers are interchangeable but half axle stubs are different. You are buying 30 years old used part, God only knows what is there. I`d rather fix mine, all OEM quality bearings and seals are about 200 $.
  18. Interesting. Car-part shows that an 87 also fits that car, and a place in California has two on the shelf for turbo locking diff for $125 but no shipping. There's only 4 in the country and they all show 87-91 fitment.

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    Yep, musta been thinking of adjusting the valves, because I knew I had done it (taken the tension off the cam chain) at some point. Ignore me, carry on....

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    LOL! If you insist, "You are crazy"! unbolt old CCT (allen) and remove Drop in new CCT with new gasket, tighten allen screws ... Then and only then remove the key from the top of the new CCT. You will hear the "Lifter Set" tension up as you pull the key and release the spring. What we call a CCT, Honda calls a Lifter Set.

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    Aren't you supposed to use a little key to relieve tension before removal and install? Been a looong time and maybe I'm thinking of a step in adjusting the valves, somebody tell me if I'm crazy or not....

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    Yes that's all there is to it

    CCT REPLACEMENT

    I just received my new CCT for my 1997 XX. Is their anything I should be aware of in order to replace the old one. I'm assuming it is a direct replacement, unbolt and remove the old one, install the new one and then remove the key that holds the piston in place. And then start the engine. Yes? No?
  24. Yeah, the RX7 has a cult following, parts are expensive. The engines were easy to break (not in the sense of poorly built, but needed exacting care), so lots of cars came off the road and got scrapped. When I decided mine wasn't worth fixing at all any more I still got decent cash.

    differential noise

    It is 89-91 TurboII , as far as bulletproof lets not argue about it. Failed bearings after 180 k miles does not really mean weak differential. Keep in mind most turbo rx7s still running operate at much higher then oem power levels. Like 400-500 vs 200-250 hp or whatever Mazda claimed. BTW, 400-500 hp is not much these days but they only weight 2900-3000 pounds. Amyway, I've found required bearings and seals and gonna fuck with that in couple of weeks.
  26. You never gave a year so I can't try to find you one. You also didn't say it was an upgrade for a weaker version in another vehicle. The 350z guys figured out the 370z rear axles and wheel bearings are significantly beefier than the 350z version, and are direct bolt in, so now the parts have been on intergalactic backorder for months. Nissan can't make the parts fast enough to keep up with demand. One aftermarket supplier has 100 sets on order and they're all sold. Clearly "bulletproof" is an overstatement since it broke. You sure it's not a Ford?
