I just bought a 1989 Laurel Medalist Twin Cam Turbo, it's an HC33, with an RB20- performs well... however like the first writer, my shock absorbers are on their way out, and I cannot seem to find shocks ANYWHERE. Can anyone help me out by emailing me a company name or a website where I can at least order a set of shocks? They are the electronically adjustable type, pretty hard to find. If someone could send me a number of a local company in your area that carries these that would be excellent, too. My email address is sean@mail2arabic.com. HELP!!!

I just been given a 89 Nissan Laurel diesel automatic and am looking at converting to petrol. Going to put a rb20de manual in. I'm just wondering if anyone has done it, and if there is anything I should know about before I start pulling things apart.

Would it be easy to put a RB20DET manual into a 1990 laurel medalist 2.8 L diesel Automatic.

Hey, I've got an 89 c33 rb20de, and I've got a pretty much fair idea on how to do the manual conversion, but would anybody have like a step by step guide on it, just in case I get stuck, cos I wanna do it in a day or 2, not have it sitting round in pieces scratching my head.

If any one does, please email it to me mrfreestylexxx@hotmail.com

I own one of the last great Laurel Medalists; the HC35. It's great and I won't trade it for all of the gold in the world!

I'm trying to do this also, and can't find any information on whether I can run it off a 20e body loom?
