Just wanted to say that I posted details of the event on my blog. Hopefully more people will be aware of the meet up when they read it. I dont get any money for having my blog, but if you want to check it out, here it is... Natural Selection Drift/Car Club: 240sx Owner's Meet and Greet (http://arnaturalselection.blogspot.com/2011/01/240sx-owners-meet-and-greet.html)

I'm just trying to bring attention to and cover the arkansas area car scene. It's kind of hard when you don't know a whole lot of people in your area that are into import cars. Any way, i hope you don't mind me posting it up on my blog.

I am in no way trying to steal credit for setting this up. just wanted to share the good news on my blog.

DriftVader
01-28-2011, 11:25 PM

ziptiemechanic

I'm trying to gather the rest of the parts I need before I do my sr/manual swap. Just got set back with a snapped intake camshaft.

ryanw501
10-17-2011, 08:24 AM
I just ordered some 18x10.5 rims for rear and 18x9.5 rims for front need coilovers and radiator fan if u know anyone

ziptiemechanic
10-17-2011, 10:56 AM
I got some 18x10's in the rear and some 18x9's for the front. Haven't put the fronts on because I'm still in the process of refinishing them. Theres a guy parting out a s14 on craigslist.

ryanw501
10-18-2011, 01:54 PM
You know anyone that would have a clutch flywheel or starter

ziptiemechanic
10-18-2011, 02:19 PM
Not off hand

ziptiemechanic
10-18-2011, 02:23 PM
Have you tried arrides.com nwaimports.com, there might be someone on either one that just might have one. Pick and Pull is showing one s14/ 5 s13 at there Cabot yard and 2 over at Little Rock.

ryanw501
10-20-2011, 05:22 AM

ryanw501
10-21-2011, 09:40 AM
Hey lucky u know any one with a clutch or flywheel that is for sale. My guy flaked out on me.

ryanw501
10-21-2011, 10:15 AM
Anyone in the little rock area want to help me at pick n pull

ziptiemechanic
10-21-2011, 10:21 AM
Do you guys go to the meets on Friday and Saturday night in NLR. Haven't seen many s14's there, i have two s13's.

I don't even know where people meet up at around here. I just moved here back in July. However most of the 240's i've seen have been out in Cabot.

ryanw501
10-21-2011, 10:33 AM
My s14 isn't functional right now.

lucky_brett
10-21-2011, 03:28 PM
yeah a lot of guys are from cabot due to the air force base, i actually just bought another s13 from one of the guys. the meets our on friday and saturday at bed, bath, and beyond parking lot around 10:30. its right there by hooters. I don't know anyone at the top of my head that has a clutch and flywheel, and can't go to you-pull it since i work both my jobs today.

ziptiemechanic
10-21-2011, 04:25 PM
You didn't by chance buy a yellow s13?

ryanw501
10-21-2011, 06:31 PM
I ended up with an extra pressure plate and flywheel if anyone needs one

ziptiemechanic
10-21-2011, 06:38 PM
New pics of the door gauge setup. Still need to fix some imperfections.

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 07:29 AM
Do you know if those S14's over at pick and pull had the driver side door vents still? Thinking about picking them up.

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 08:51 AM
I dont recall but I'm going back today or tomorrow

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 10:24 AM
Could you let me know. Also all the 240's at the Cabot pick-n-pull are auto.

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 10:45 AM
Thats the one I went to lol

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 06:54 PM
Did you ever go to the one in Little Rock?

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 06:57 PM
Come to find out neither flywheel I ended up with will work. So back to square one

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 07:03 PM
Did you pick one up from a auto? The auto one's shouldn't work for a manual, but the ka24de and ka24e flywheel should be interchangeable.

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 07:06 PM
I was told today by several people that mine won't work. Its off a s13 I think an 89

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 07:25 PM
So your trying to put a s13 flywheel on a s14? It should work as long they are both manual flywheels. They are interchangeable.

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 07:28 PM
Is there not a sensor in the s14 flywheel?? There is a pickip sensor of some type ok the trans I'm new to these 240 issues

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 08:03 PM
There is a crankshaft position sensor on the s14 tranny, not on the flywheel itself. You'll just get a CEL only because you don't have the s14 flywheel. It has magnets or a notch of some sort to trigger the sensor, but the s13 flywheel will work.

ryanw501
10-22-2011, 08:05 PM
Do u know how it works. Does it calculate crank position by counting teeth?

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 08:16 PM

Hey man I really appreciate that info. Thanks do you know where to get a flywheel resurfaced.

ziptiemechanic
10-22-2011, 08:25 PM
I'll have to look on arrides.com. I know the guys on there recommended some machine shops a while back.

ziptiemechanic
10-23-2011, 07:05 AM
Apparently Motor Pro here in Jacksonville is the place to go for any machine work
