    Oil extractors has anyone used one on a K11, any good?

    Pull a driveshaft any remaining you might be able to get out with a pump, or you could tilt the car to the right (lilting to the left would put it into the gearbox end away from the driveshaft) and pull the RHS driveshaft.

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    It's unlikely I'd say there's anything whole with them, you could put a little bit of grease in there and just check there's not too much play or excess movement in them. I think the greatest friction comes from the ball and socket joint but to do the job effectively I'd be pulling it out and...

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    Yeah I reckon, very low demand for a grease in my opinion you could just about use any sort of grease.

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    As said above you don't need to take out the exhaust it's not the easiest to get the shifter out but not too bad, that way you can inspect the pivots clean it properly and get it nice.

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    This youtube by another member on here might give you an idea, just beware it's installing a short shifter so things will look a bit different.

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    Yes, it's up under the exhaust, there's a tin exhaust shield you can remove from around the 2nd catalytic converter, you don't need to take that section of the exhaust off then you can get to the bolts from underneath. Easier if you can get it up on stands or even just one side on a gutter.

    Stiff gear changes - hard to change gear

    There's a couple of things you could check out: Firstly check out the gear linkage underneath the gearstick as I believe this can wear or just need a good clean and a light grease in areas. The other option I can think of off the top of my head is that your clutch cable might be out of...

    Oil Pump O-Rings

    looks like #1 item here (Part # 1506660U00 ): http://nissan4u.com/parts/micra/el_k11e/1994_1/type_94/engine_mechanical/front_cover_and_fitting/ (Brilliant resource BTW well worth bookmarking) I think I got these O rings as part of the timing chain kit for my engine but I can't remember.

    Lightened Flywheel for Coilpacks

    If I remember correctly the trigger wheel on the CGA flywheel means you can't safely lighten it, I haven't looked myself as we never got the CGA. That indicates you might need to look at an aftermarket if they exist. Others will know more.

    K11 space frame help

    I saw a micra dirt track car on way back waiting for the ferry to Ireland, I went over to chat and he explained there really wasn't any micra to it, I think they were using vauxhall xe? Engines and spaceframe and fibreglass shell. It might give you a lead to follow.

    K11 CG Cylinder Head Flow

    I suspected as much... That said it's enough above the 100hp that it's not behaving the way I expected, or rather I wasn't taking into account the complications. You're spec is close to the engine I'm building for Spot my mini so 125hp in a 630kg car should be lively, I'm worried about traction...

    K11 CG Cylinder Head Flow

    I've been thinking about these 2 posts above and the original post and I'm not sure I understand. I thought of engine flow tuning in terms of finding the bottleneck and improving that, so in this case the inlet manifold can only flow enough for about 100hp then all else being equal 100hp is all...

    Injector Upgrade Advice?

    Well if you are going to a standalone ecu later the engine management light shouldn't be an issue, that said I have extractors and a aftermarket catalytic converter (cat) after this, it still passed emissions(Australia). It might mean you need to put in a new aftermarket cat further down and...

    Injector Upgrade Advice?

    I don't consider myself knowing the answer but here's a bit more info. You generally don't want to run your injectors at thier capacity, because you'd like some in reserve (up to 80% is what I've heard) for fuel trims to adjust with as well it would seem more likely they fail as the injector...

    How to fit a Nissan Pulsar GTI-R short shifter to a K11 Micra.

    Ah that explains it, I took it apart hoping it would fit the OEM socket but it was too small. As in the original post it has firmed up the shift remarkably and there's more feedback (for want of a better way to describe it). As I used the OEM tube and bushes(to lower linkage) I think it has to...

    How to fit a Nissan Pulsar GTI-R short shifter to a K11 Micra.

    I bought one of these kits to fit to my mini (with a cg13de) the first one I got had heaps of slop in the ball and socket after a small metal packer fell out, so much so I didn't use it, the seller sent another, this one had no packer but the same amount of slop. After a while I decided to...

    Introductions and a Request

    Exhaust generally will be cheaper, I'd also prioritise the exhaust. Two reasons it seems the well worn route to modest gains and is proven and the CG exhaust is even more restrictive than the inlet. This link has Frank's Frankenstein steel inlet manifold (scroll down)...

    Introductions and a Request

    Yeah nothing cheap or easy... The easiest and cheapest I would think would be a welded steel manifold frank did way back from a different corolla manifold. I've tried the 5efhe it was close to being able to cut and shut for my mini engine but we ended up going with a custom inlet manifold. Steel...

    Introductions and a Request

    The 4efte, 5efhe, and some other corolla manifolds are able to be cut and welded on but are by no means bolt on. There are manifolds for putting on bike carbs or motorbike ITBs. Bike carbs will probably mean it won't pass emissions and ITBs would need an ECU upgrade.

    which belts are needed

    Can you read the code / number on the existing belt? If so just look for that. If not then the first number probably a 4 refers to the number of ribs on the belt, the next is the length of the belt in mm. Failing that take the existing belt to a parts place and ask them or compare directly with...
