That's a 240 sx rear wheel drive engine-

Actually it is the same engine, but the FWD version.

Here is a front clip from a Bluebird...

Well,
Sheri kinda likes the black wheel look, and wondered if a small black graphic on the side would be tasteful, and help bring the wheels in to the look better-

I was thinking blacked out headlights and tail lights would help a bit also--

I'd love to do the bluebird engine-but this one must stay put till it blows-

I think this can be pulled off, without a side of rice. That is the goal.

Right now it runs so smoothly, that if you wre to leave it running to go get a ack of gum or something you might grind the starter when you get back in.

Which reminds me-it needs a new ignition switch. This one has gotten to where the key must be jiggled to start it. It had a key broken off in it a couple years ago, the locksmith drilled it out and re keyed it for 25.00, but I think that meesed it up in the long run

And, the driver side sun visor is toast.


Other than faded interior cloth, it is a cream puff.

I had a bad bad scare with this car today-
It had a constant recurring belt squeal-
I replaced the idler-and it still acted like it needed adjusting -
I tried tightening it a bit and it squealed the next day-
hmm
I looked closer and saw that the top alternator bracket bolt had broken off in the head-
I pondered for a minute on drilling it out, but thought outside the box, :cool:


I found a small scrap bracket with a bolt slot already cut into it.
I cut off a 2" section, welded it to the alernator bracket, and this allowed using the furthest left header stud for an anchor point.
I tightened it all down, and it works well. the broken bolt can stay put.

I might be able to source sunvisors in the junkyard, if you want me to look.

PM me color if interested...

PM me if you want me to look for other items for it...

Well, we have been trying to find items to spruce this car up , however it is all ricey. I just can't quite get a handle on what to do.

I think the best mod for Sheri's daily driver is ebay item 120443368994

I just need a bit of help convincing her she needs it.
