That is so cool! Do you still have the wheels?

yup I do. I have put them up for sale at various times, most recently last week - but there are way too many timewasters on trademe, and I'm starting to get fed up of people saying they'll come view them, then never turning up.

The later tekamen oil pickups should have a slot cut into the bottom of the oil pickup tube, so that if the sump is squashed against it, it should still be able to suck oil thru the slots...but yeah mine had the oil pump whine too!

Hmm, I'd always assumed the slotted pickup was only on the intercooled FJ20ET - mine's one of the transition-period (Aug '83 - Feb '84) tekamen with the non-intercooled version.

Although you may be right, as the oil pressure gauge still gives normal readings and the engine hasn't grenaded yet. Just that dodgy whine gives me the heebie jeebies every time I start it up... :?

the car's currently in storage and not being driven (awaiting its 2.1 stroker rebuild), so I figured I would attend to the sump then and not before.

Speaking of strokers, check out what I found on Yahoo Auctions recently... an incomplete OS Giken FJ24 kit. That crank alone is probably worth moonbeams, and this is reflected in the starting price I guess - ¥298,000 (NZ$4665) :o

But you do have a Skyline on sale in the US. It's called an Infiniti G35 :)

The R31 Skyline was even manufactured in Australia in the late 80s :D

That engine compartment pic on page 1 is of a F31 (leopard but sold as infiniti M30 in america).

They were available from 1990 to 1992 meaning nissan got a few more years out of the R31 unibody though there are driveline and possibly brake differences.

Nissan foisted it on america with little fanfare using the F31 underpinnings and outer bodywork a bit more rounded than the R31 as well as a non-turbo VG30.

Image

They only sent a 5000 to 7500 over to america (half were convertibles) and they still had trouble selling them.

Had it been equipped with a turbocharged engine, I'm sure demand would have been higher.

It's left hand drive but that's a 1981 280zx turbo engine in it running on the stock M30 ecu on turbo injectors.

That resistor pack is there because the ECU expects to see 10 to 14 ohms resistence from the injectors but I have 2.4 ohm injectors in there so I use a dropping resistor.

The M30 ecu is sequential injection rather than batch or group fired and it seems to be new enough such that is has the ability to trim fuel and learn the value since I am running a .2 liter smaller engine and injectors about 90cc/min larger with no troubles at all.

It will get a 2002 nissan quest ecu later.

This car and my former 1984 maxima (910 bluebird with R30 length engine compartment and L24e) are as close as you can get to skyline lineage in a US domestic market car.

I've got the love for a car I cannot buy so I get as close as I can with what is available.

Well, technically the US got the 1st Gen. Skyline. That was it officially though, for a long while.

How about some useful part #'s? These are the window seals for the rear windows on the R30 Hard Top. They attach to the rear window, and seal to the front window. Mine were dry rotted beyond redemption. :td:

83335-21S00 L/H side
83334-21S00 R/H side

You can still get those? On my old DR30 they were so gone you could stick your thumb between the window gap :)

Yes, they are still available. I got mine from Japan via Australia. I used Von Bibra. They got me a valve cover gasket too. :tu:

Um... No.

No Skylines ever sold here until about 5-6 years ago, when they brought in the base model Skyline as an Infiniti G35.

Are you talking about the 1st gen Nissan Skyline or 1st gen Prince Skyline?

You reckon?

There's only one 1st Gen. and that's a Prince Skyline. The first Nissan Skyline is the Third Generation of Skyline.

Were there some Prince Skylines sold in the USA back in the mid 50s?

I don't recall exactly, around $15-20 US each. Well worth it. :tu:

Those R30's look mean Stagefumer. They have a real stealth look to them. Though I must admit im never really a fan of seeing chopped up fronts to expose giant intercoolers.


After I finish my Assignment this weekend, I will upload some photos, I have almost 600 DR30 pics I have collected off the internet :P
