Do you know if the TC unlocks upon kickdown (hitting the switch on when the pedal hits the floor)?dlh wrote:The lock up torque converter locks up after certain rpms of the drive shaft, It isn't electric lock up. I think close to or after 40 mph.
Oh . . . so you're a crank pirate, eh? Well, it takes all kinds, I guess. How far along are you on the 3.1l?I'm one of the z car cannibals I have been reading about in this forum. (have 1 diesel crank from a maxima for a stroker motor in my 240)
That's the kind of article that makes me think that this internet thing might be worth sticking aroundThere is a write up on zcar.com telling about the 4 spd auto swap into the s30(240z, 260z, 280z) and s130(280zx). While researching for my 4 spd auto swap into my 280zx turbo I saw information between 2 of the other members talking about the pump and different year 4 spd autos.

Everyone else, note this quote:
For us Gen1 folks, this might be an issue on the '81 810, but the '82 Maxima uses the L3N71B that is not that much different in length than the L4N71B. At least, I measured it to be within about 1.5" in length -- I have an '83 Maxima L4N71B in storage on a dolly, and I rolled it under my '82 Wagon with it on the rack, and tried to run a tape along it.Before installation, you must cut away the old mounts that were spot welded to the car to hold the old 3spd A/T, or 5spd.. This is essential as the O/D Trans is 6-8" longer than your original trans.
