Re: Datsun-credible!

Yup, I'm the shop teacher, I'm at Belmont, and the new school is pretty nice!
I'm looking forward to doing some more auto cross...once I get the car sorted out a bit better.

Re: Datsun-credible!

I remember you from auto cross...I'd like to do more soon, but 510 needs some tweaking first, alignment, better breathing (twin carbs would be sweet!), probably should think about bigger cam...so many things!

Re: 1971 2 Door 70s build

When I did my auto to standard pedal swap, I had the same trouble with no where for my clutch return spring to go. I ended up using some steel rod and welding in a bracket, works mint! I'll have to see if I can dig up a picture of it.

Re: Popping noise from stereo after EI dizzy install...???

...so yeah, I haven't even looked at this for a while...I've been busy moving, and setting up my new shop for my new job. I'm hoping I'll have some time, but as these things go....
The insurance is expired now so I should be into 'winter time work' mode on the car. Here's hoping!

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

Nice work on the 510 plate! I just recently got one for my beastie and it came from Victoria, I guess I got the right guy at the insurance place cause I just causally asked if there was a chance that I could get a 510 plate and he said "just let me check my stock on line...oh, there's one in Victori...

I think the ground from the battery to the body sheet metal is on the voltage regulator mounting bolt? Either way you must have a good solid ground return between battery NEG and the body.
