Good to know, thanks street. That's kind of surprising since I've generally had pretty good luck with centric products in the past.

Either that, or the belt was slipping.



Is it just a rectifier?

ive had steadily declining experiences with centric/powerstop. first go round, excellent products, no problems. later i needed like 12 rotors for 3 different cars and i had to return like 5 of em for casting flaws. now this with the calipers. I dont think ill ever order another centric product. also of note, normally i dont get the "c-tek" line i get the little more spendy one and i still get this junk.

Have you replaced your hoses recently? They go bad internally. The inside swells and acts like a check valve in many cases. It can hold your piston out or cause it to return too slowly.
The way you check is to jack a wheel off the ground, mash the brakes, let off, and spin the wheel by hand. If there is a fair amount of drag, open the bleeder screw momentarily. If fluid squirts out and the wheel now spins freely, its a bad hose.

thats an interesting put. However, i have russel-go-fuck-yourself-speed-bleeder screws in there. I hate them passionately. It basically takes "panic stop" pressure to get the springs and check balls to move.

I dont think this is a hose issue cause i got in there, lubed everyting and pushed the pistons back into the caliper to make my life easier when closing the caliper back up and they worked fine for a while. its like that piston seal isnt letting the brakes retract. Also, they're so friggin hot that they are like, smoke billowing out so i know the brakes are really grabbing hard.


oh another strike against centric, their warranty is 3mos or some super small number of miles, like 500 miles. most others are lifetime, 6yrs etc. i ordered "wearever" new units. i think its the hosue brand for cardone/carquest/advance. i got a discount so it cost me 40/corner.



related note: anyone know the PN for some stainless steel braided lines? if i gotta bleed the system i might as well do those too.

But I digress. When it had the Z24i I only got 17. Your mileage is impressive for such an elderly truck.

Came across this Datsun yesterday whilst out and about. Maybe giving you some inspiration with these photos.

I wholeheartedly agree!

When I turned the corner from behind it and saw it. I actually did a 3-point turn to come back around to capture those photos to share!

I came across another one today that I will post when I get home later today. Its pretty nice too!



Had to clear the MIL for that pesky P1447 again. Thought I fixed it with the fuel filler neck assembly and fuel filler hose change out. So under the hood to start testing components. Am getting the smell of raw fuel inside of my garage. So the purge valve or volume control valve isnt obviously working at 100%.

Ugh...
