    Fitted my Z32 rear setup today

    Stripped back, the hub took some getting off on the drivers side but got there in the end using heat and copious amounts of AC90!



    Handbrake mech assembled, and R33 GTST handbrake cables installed.



    All done!



    Just need to setup up the handbrake and bleed the brakes.

    Finally after 15 months of searching a Defi BF white back-lit oil pressure gauge came up for sale so I snapped it up!!

    Just fitted the gauge and connected it up, going to fit the sender when there is more light and less ice.



    A quick video of all three in action!



    I also cleaned up my spare fuel rail and masked it up ready to paint in an, as of yet, undecided colour.

    Oil pressure switch removal

    Seems to be quite a lot of confussion around how possible this job is with out removing large amounts of engine ancillaries. I managed to do it with relative ease once I'd acquired the correct tooling.
    This is a guide on how to remove the stock sender and replace with a different one, if you wish to retain the stock sender (not necessary as it's set too low to be of any use) then you'll need a T piece.

    Tools required

    1/4 drive ratchet with 14mm socket
    14mm spanner
    1/2 drive ratchet,
    1/2 drive 4-6" extention
    1/2 27mm deep socket (5 off ebay)

    First remove the A shaped bracket that joins the inlet plenum to the bottom of the bock, the top two bolts are easy to access from the top, the bottom is not too difficult when using the 1/4 drive ratchet.

    Once removed unclip the connector from the oil pressure switch from the top of the engine bay, the clip for the connector is on the rear most side of the connector. The switch is located to the left of the oil filter

    Below is a picture the the standard pressure switch with the connector removed viewed from underneath the car.



    Place the deep 27mm socket over this and then undo from the top of the engine bay with the ratchet and extension and finish off by hand

    Then simply insert your new sender (loads of room around this hole so even large autometer style senders should fit) however the thread is 1/8BSTP which is perfect for Defi senders but not for a lot of other brands so a simple adaptor (a few off ebay) maybe required



    It really isn't that hard to do yet is made out to be near impossible without lots of intrusive work first. The deep 27mm socket is the key in this operation and it really is near impossible without it.

    Hope this helps people

    Went out for a couple of quick photos, then had a play around with them just using iPhoto.











    BRAKES!

    Cheers mate, crappy photos really but oh well!

    Yea I don't like it though. I want a type 1, the excessive pipework aggravates me from an engineering perspective.

    Yeah I was all for Type 2 on my previous car but now I have Type 1 I do see the benefits.

    Although I'm not sure how much flow/response you'll actually feel between the two, I'm just happier that access to areas of the car around the engine bay is much less restrictive!
