    Manual Conversion

    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/

    MA10ET rocker / tappet / valve spring issue... no room for adjustment on 1 and 2 ?!

    You guys are correct... I'm an absolute lemon and hadnt wound 1 & 2 out. Maybe I have sunstroke. Thanks for your help.

    MA10ET rocker / tappet / valve spring issue... no room for adjustment on 1 and 2 ?!

    Hi all, 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...

    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:

    Hi all... I'm back to working on the Figaro stuff! @frank , are these the areas on the 160mm cover that you trimmed to allow it to fit over the 180mm clutch?

    Figaro head gasket set? Same as all ma10?

    Fig tax is a real thing. ... but I'm not sure if the gaskets are the same or not. Can you get part numbers for those two?

    Manual Conversion

    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.

    K10 figaro conversion higher boost

    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 ?)...

    I wonder if there is a 180mm Luk clutch that has deeper friction facings for extra grip. This bit seems wasted...

    I have an update! Keeping an eye on ebay for cheap 180mm 18 tooth and 160mm 16 tooth clutches paid off. I now have two Luk clutches with identical centres: For reference: 160mm 16 tooth Nissan branded Luk clutch: 301005F600 180mm 18 tooth Luk branded Luk clutch: 318013611 They both...
