Engine & Transmission / Weird Transmission Issue
« on: July 06, 2016, 12:26 PM »
Looking for some insight into the following issue:

2006 Mitsubishi Exclipse 4cyl 5psd.

Car was purchased safetied with a slight noise that sounded like a throw out bearing.  Car drive fine, no slipping in the clutch.

We took the transmission out and had our mechanic look at it, turned out to be the input shaft bearing, got it replaced, put the transmission back in the car.  Nothing. Car will not move. 
You can hear and feel the transmission shift into the gear, but the car does not move, also has a slight grind like noise that sounds like the splines on the output shafts aren't grabbing or aligned properly. 
Also another weird issue is with the clutch, we bled the system and can visually see the clutch fork moving, but it feels like it doesnt disengage the transmission from the engine when pushed.

The transmission was pulled again and had two other people look at it and said it was fine.

There's not a whole lot of information I can find anywhere online so all input is appreciated.

Engine & Transmission / Wiring Guru - 240sx
« on: January 27, 2015, 11:21 AM »
Are there any automotive wiring experts out here?

I am working on a project car I picked up.  It is a 89 240sx with a 7mgte dropped in, utilizing SDS stand alone ECU for the motor.  Some of the electrical has been installed/adapted to the car, all the intercool/exhaust/oil/water has been fab'd and installed as well.

The car still has all the stock wiring and ECU to control headlights, wipers, etc.  The previous owner has partially installed the ECU and started a battery relocation.

The first thing that I am trying to do is finish the battery relocation, hook up the alternator etc, and provide power to the stock wiring to check if it is intact and the various car components work.
I have printed out the wiring schematics for the 240 along with the standalone ecu.  The problem I am having is which wires running out of the fuse/relay box (which have been extended) do I hook up to +12v from the battery, and which I should ground in order to power up the vehicle.  This seems simple enough, but the wiring schematics does not tell me the colour of the wires within the fuse/relay panel, therefore I'm sorta stumped. 

If anyone has experience doing swaps on a 240, any and all help would be appreciated.

I will post some pictures of the current wiring disaster later today.

Engine & Transmission / Honda Civic Axles
« on: September 18, 2014, 01:44 PM »
So I picked up a Honda (97 civic coupe) recently.   Has B20 swap, along with an LS tranny. The passenger side axel has popped out of the transmission leaving it un driveable.  I was never able to drive the car as this is how it was when I bought it.  Took a gamble however, my question is if anybody knows which axel is the correct one for this swap.  From doing some quick research it looks like an axel from a 91-93 integra would work.  Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks for the help!

General Discussion / Wildlife Collision
« on: July 02, 2014, 08:19 AM »
So last night I was driving to Stonewall to watch the fireworks, and on a gravel road I hit a deer.  I was probably only doing around 50 or so and there isn't much damage to the vehicle.  When I checked it last night I thought it I may have gotten off without any damage.  But this morning, I noticed the hood and fender alignment is off on both sides of the vehicle, might be slightly bent as well on the passenger side, and a tiny dent on the top of the drivers fender. 

Would my best bet be taking it to MPI and having a shop fix it? or just straighten things out myself? I don't think paying a deductible would be worth it.

Journals / Drift Missile
« on: June 19, 2014, 01:07 PM »
Looks like there is going to be a few more drifting events here in MB so a buddy and I picked up a car that we intend to turn into a drift missile. 

The car is a 1984 Toyota Celica GT-S.  The car is RWD and stick so it fits the bill.  The 22RE 4cyl motor lacks in the power department but it should still be able to get the job done.  Took it for a spin the other day and as it sits, this thing will not drift.  First thing up is going to be welding the diff then testing her out.  A V8 swap might happen sooner than later as the car has over 300,000km on the original motor, and the power will definitely help it slide.

Bikes / My Bike Build
« on: February 24, 2014, 10:40 AM »
Over the winter I picked up a 97 V Star 650.  Bike is MINT and 100% stock.  My goal for this bike is to build a "bobber" style bike, with my own kinda feel.  The bike runs and drives, however the carbs definitely need a cleaning.  I'll be doing that once it warms up a little more as my garage isn't heated and I detest working on bikes,cars,sleds, etc when im freezing. 

Here's a few pics of progress. 

How it looked when I picked it up.



Quick strip of some parts.  (Fleabay seat I picked up)



Still need to figure out what i'm doing with the exhaust.  I don't want to buy a set of Vance & Hanes etc., would rather have a one off, but I don't have the equipment to bend piping.

Some ideas of exhaust I want
