    Manual Conversion

    I documented the process a bit on the retrorides forum - https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/215599/1989-nissan-pao-forgive-micra If you'd like pics of specific parts for the manual conversion, I can oblige. I'm based in Cambridgeshire, UK. Do the swap, it's so worth it! The Pao can now...

    Manual Conversion

    I've gone through the 5-speed conversion on the Pao now, also with the 1.2l engine from a donor K10 Micra. That is the easiest route really - find K10 Micra with the 5-speed and swap the box, pedals and linkages over. I happened across one that only had 30k miles on for about £800 so snapped it...

    Looking for a Pao with manual transmission - are they out there?

    Can't really help with either question. I doubt the transmission would be happy with anything putting out more torque than the 1.2 variant though. My manual has a bit of a whine on the 5-speed and that's hardly got any miles on!

    They exist but are rare, you may have to import one from Japan with that specification. I bought an automatic and converted it to manual and the larger 1.2 engine from a K10 Micra.

    [Sold] Complete K10 for Recommission or Parts

    Sorry lads, somebody has taken the complete car, which is much easier for me than breaking!

    [Sold] Complete K10 for Recommission or Parts

    K10 used for engine swap with Pao. Complete car in great condition, had a full MOT, 27k miles. Now has no engine up front and a Pao motor and box in the boot (MA10S 3-speed auto) that was on higher miles but ran well, if very slowly. May be missing a couple of parts if @K10LS makes it up to me...

    Looking for 1989 1.0 3 door Hatch spares after small incident...

    Car is now ready to be scavenged from. K10LS above has first dibs obviously. :)

    Looking for 1989 1.0 3 door Hatch spares after small incident...

    All the front panels are in great condition, car was well cared for in some ways and it has under 30k miles on it(!). Red by the way.

    I'm going to be breaking a four door in Cambridgeshire in a few weeks if you still need anything then.

    'Nizonda' Pao K20

    Great project and I'd love to take some parts off your hands, but postage from NI to England might sting!

    Help needed for ECCS identification

    The far right is idle speed if I recall correctly, the others something similar to do with engine tuning I expect!

    Manual Conversion

    Almighty thread revival sorry. My Figaro project got sidetracked by: 1. Figaro had dodgy MOT when bought. There were holes all over the floor, including within mounting distance of suspension points. Subsequently I had really unpleasant conversations with the seller and ended up just...

    Manual Conversion

    Hi folks, Sorry to make my first post a pretty big ask for advice, but I've recently picked up a Figaro - in need of a little bit of cosmetic tidying - that I'd like to make a little more fun. It's a little different already as it's had a full silver paint job at some point and has some rusty...
