If you rebuild an engine yourself, make sure you don't forget about the little stuff. This little gasket is important.

I think it was 18 outerlinks one way, 26 the other, depending which way you count.

Not to be a dick but you need to stop being spoon fed and do some reading for yourself.

You could of just pm'd me if you had a personal problem.
I try and research as much as I can. My fsm didn't specify, and no popular sites had any info, just trying to get an answer. Sorry

www.240sxtechdvds.org Buy the DVD's, or really read over the FSM, i'm sure its there.

When you search, make sure you are posting the question in the top field (when I first got here I didn't realize I was searching in the username field)

The FSM that we all get from the site has all the we need to get the job done. Reading and understanding are on two things that fall on the far ends of the bell spectrum.

It would be nice if some of the money made from those videos would be recontributed back to the forum, since this forum is one of the key sources to bring attention to the video.

Thank god that the images in the OP are still hosted. I think they should be backed up and hosted locally on site...this is a one of a kind guide.

When I do my engine build-up thread, I'm going to post up all of the pictures here.
I hope that I can upload the data.

I find that a lot of people had posted content, but it was on their own servers, ie: photobucket. When that acct is cancelled, the content from the website is lost.

IF a specific thread is valued, it may be more efficient to save the entire content of the thread via pdf, and provide it in a backyard archive.

Then link that to a sticky thread/ faq.
