Nissan Skyline Insurance : JDM Vehicle Insurance

This question pops up about one to two times a day on the Facebook Skyline groups.  Insurance is required in  many/most areas to be able to legally drive your vehicle on the roads.

The issues that people normally run into are that the Nissan Skyline has a short VIN or chassis number that does not conform to US FMVSS standards from 1981 up.  However these vehicles, that are over 25 years old, are FMVSS exempt.  So like vehicles older than 1981, it is possible to enter and get a quote.

Insurance itself is tied to many factors, so the actual numbers of what people pay, are pretty much irrelevant.  For everyone person that has State Farm, Progressive, or Geico, there are two others that got denied.

This poll was posted in one group.  As you can see the majority of owners were covered by USAA. Many ex-military in the owners groups.

RB26DETT Timing Belt Tensioner Failure

All the balls are on the left side. 

Sean Kirby, aka the other Sean, or am I the other Sean, either way, posted these pictures of a tensioner bearing failure.   He says that this is most likely the original timing belt.  The belt, tensioner, idler, and spring should be replaced every 60,000 miles.  If you don't know if it has been replaced, with certainty, replace it. Always a good idea to do the water pump at the same time, as it is behind the timing belt.

Top Gear America Nissan Skyline GT-R : Behind the Scenes

We filmed partially at Hoonigan Donut Garage, just down the street in Long Beach. 

We had a great time shooting for Top Gear America with a few R32 GT-R's. Those with a keen eye might have noticed two gunmetal R32 used in many of the scenes, and a NISMO R32 used for the Stig lap.
