Got no picutres as of yet. Gearbox let go about a week after i bought the car. completely stripped second and first gear of all teeth.Darn limiter launches..

anyway got gears out of a gtir pulsar as they are bigger then the bluebird. The bluebirds are only about 12mm think and the gtir's are 15mm.

my understanding is that the bluebird, gtir, maxima and fwd ka24 gearboxes are all 50-series nissan gearboxes and have an identical gearset inside. and the way the gears slide onto the shafts you generally can't just shove wider gears onto them unless you go completely redesigning the gearbox internals. you can see that here from my old broken box: http://www.clubpoint.net/bluebird/Img_2588.jpg

as fun as rev limiter launches can be, they can get bloody expensive!

I guess I can include myself in here now, since I picked my U13 SSS up yesterday!

Name: Jeremy
Car: 1993 (Reg'd Feb 94) U13 SSS
Colour: Polar White
Trans: Manual
Owned Since: October 2005
Occupation: ISP work
ASL: 19, Male, Perth (Armadale)

The car started life in Queensland, then moved to Kalgoorlie, then Morley in the space of 1 year, and now it's mine!
I was a little sad to see the old Corsair go, but I was more than happy to say goodbye to the flatspot, leaky brake master cylinder, and high-speed wobble!

It seems to have the U13 Series 1 Rattle to it, which I'll have to investigate further.
Also it's obviously been left in the sun due to the slightly faded paint on the grille and the back.
Apart from that, it's in near perfect condition - everything works as it should

Pic: (this was the only photo I had to look at while I waited a whole week before I could go pick it up!



Was: 2.4i 12 Valve   Now: 2.4 DOHC 16 Valve   Next: 2.4 Quad Cam?? 32-Valve??

Nice choice mortz, looks great :)
You won't be disappointed, the U13s are great cars.
You don't see many Aus U13 SSS models in that colour.
Wonder what the deal is with the striping door protectors, must have been a factory option.

The U13 Series 1 rattle???

They don't look very factory. That strip is pretty standard stuff from alot of panel shops/automotive shops.

The U13 Series 1 rattle???

From http://www.antrx.com/smf/index.php?topic=6923.0:
Quote
With the Series 1 bluebirds, there was a timing chain guide bolted into the head. This guide is the cause of  more than 90% of the top end rattles in series 1 bluebirds. the solution to this problem is to take the guide out completely!!!! Nissan had recognised this problem and the Series 2 motor's came from the factory with the guide already removed.
(thanks Greenbird)

At least that's all I hope it is  :-\

All this talk about stripping gears in the gearbox is annoying me, when my gearbox blew, all the gears were fine, it was the casing that exploded, whats up with that?

when my first gearbox broke i took two teeth off 2nd, and i imagine if i hammered the throttle afterwards it probably would have stripped the gear. 2nd time i put the output shaft (well, one half of it!) through the side of the case (it basically just punched a hole in the side of the case, didn't actually exit the casing).

a gearbox can fail in so many ways, and some people have a standard gearbox lasting fine behind 180rwkw and others dying with standard power. stupid things.

Hehe why are people so ashamed of showing their cars with minor blemishes? My car is one big blemish in itself, but I don't care, I'm along for the ride, and the social life.
