I'm also using DOT4 Syn brake fluid. It's compatible with DOT3 even mixed

Post number 2 is someones opinion. If you read the rest o that thread you will see how he got corrected with resources and everyine decided to use GL-4.. nice backfire though LOL

Technically if you remove the flywheel to replace the rear main seal, you should replace the flywheel bolts since they are torque-to-yield bolts. However plenty of us have reused them even a couple times without issue.

I like to replace the crossmember bushings with solid washers instead.

B15 SR20 disc is the way to go. Redline MT90 fluid all the way.

You're on the right track.

Has anyone used the Motul Gear 300, 75W90 full synthetic? I need some reviews, and would the B15 disc work with the non B15 pressure plate?.

Yes the B15 disc should work with any SR20 pressure plate.

now's the time for a lightweight flywheel. it's something that'll bring smiles every time you drive it.

the B15 disc is all nissan will supply now for SR20's friend over here ordered a boggo standard disc from an Almera GTi after the one from GSpec spat its springs and the one he received was identical.

New clutch cable
One of Miko's clutch brackets
New Axle Seals
New TB
New TB clips

you wont need to replace any bolts unless you have snapped them.

and this I cant stress enough, make sure to properly clean the area that the bearing slides on, and then regrease it with a decent lasting grease something like CV grease.

My pedal about 6 months after changing the clutch became very stiff and notchy, I removed the box to find the cause, only to see the grease I had applied on the gearbox and TB that was supplied with the clutch kit had gone and the bearing had worn grooves into the casing of the gearbox, once I had greased and re-assembled the box the pedal feel was comparable to my hydraulic clutch

Could also be a good idea to strip down your starter motor and clean and regrease it.
