I've just finished my manual conversion... it's exactly as @103keef explained, although the standard K10 160mm clutch slips so best to use a hybrid clutch explained here: https://www.micra.org.uk/threads/the-hybrid-clutch-thread.71513/
I'm attempting to set my tappets... I have found that one and two valve springs remain against the rockers and so no adjustment is possible. Maybe I have weakened valve springs, maybe the wrong springs, maybe something else?
I made a quick video to explain...
Any suggestions welcome...
Hi all, I have completed the manual conversion on my Figaro using the hybrid clutch.
Big thanks to @frank !!
I did do exactly as @pork had done: made the hybrid clutch, grinding on the plate, grinding on the cover, ut the car together... only to find that the clutch wouldnt disengage from...
I found some pics on an old thread by @pork : https://www.micra.org.uk/threads/porks-bike-carbs-and-boost-project.52721/page-40
They show the amount of grinding needed both on the friction plate and the cover:
Very cool project. I am considering a full Nissan Leaf system for my Fig. What motor are you running?
If you just want a manual box, it would be easy to source here in the UK... the usual challenges involved in a regular manual swap in a Fig (hybrid clutches, etc) wouldn't apply for you.
Yes, this is an issue. I found that I would get the cut when driving without the full factory intake (air box etc). I'm not sure if it is the air flow metre itself or the ECU cutting fuel at a certain point.
If it's the MAF, it may be possible to use a different air flow metre (S13 / Z32 ?)...
