    Default nice link on SU function

    http://www.zparts.com/zptech/article...rb_111601b.htm

    Don't think this has been posted, but it's a nice summary. Covers many of Hammill's points in his "Powertuning" book

    FWIW

    I've seen that before in fact I think I have it printed out somewhere. There's a more updated version here and some more useful info here.

    ...just trying to add a useful post when/if new people search for SU problems. Nice to see the diagrams!

    Seems people don't want to read Hammill's book, so posting a link may be more helpful

    Has anyone seen these videos on YouTube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHNlT...eature=related Very informative. Although not specifically Datsun, there are some very good points about tuning and cleaning.
    Enjoy the Ride

    Informative, I guess. Applicable to anything Datsun, not so much.

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Another nice drawing for the site. It nicely shows how the air pressure/depression pushes/pulls the pistons.
