Buy a 240 they said, it'll be fun they said...

A fun little project for the fall & winter


Buy a 240sx, because well why not?

In late September I got my hands on a friends clean 95 Kouki 240sx. He was moving to NYC, and didn't need a car. Whats more is, he was an part owner in a Body Shop, so when I say that the car is clean- it's really clean. Yay! The car is on buddy club coilovers, super honda offset wheels, has a stock KA with a welded diff, so it's a quintessential used 240sx except has a stellar body and floor plans. In other words an appreciating asset. :) This is my second 240sx, but this time I'm following a simple plan. The last time I did a 240, it wasn't driven for like 2 of the 4 years I owned it. Not because I didn't want to drive it, and NOT AGAIN.


Nothing could bring me down, I'm on top of the world jack!! Only one surprise- what I imagined to be a bad throw out bearing turned out to be a bit more than that. My friend had a nice little money-shift on the highway and this old KA spun rod bearings in cylinders #2 and #3 . Here's a video of me identifying the issue and how to do it. I said #4 in the video sue me, one way or the other she was knocking something awful.




Stay tuned to find out what happens next!
