Re: push rod 510s

J15 and solid axle too. J series have 3 main bearings yet manage to stay together at high RPMs. The J13 was used in the L520 truck

Re: Photo Dark Room equipment.

Vinyl vs. CD vs, MP3 vs.... There will always be someone willing to do it 'the hard way'. I mean owning and driving a Datsun could be considered doing it the hard way by 2019 standards. Surely there is more zen in the doing than pushing a START button?

Re: snow day

Yeah when it snows just better to be somewhere else. I mean park somewhere else. I think a good 100cm Sun. I shoveled s/w. Monday night it snowed again so 8-10" total now. Didn't go to work again today but shoveled my wife's car out.... again and she left. Every time I look outside it's snowing, lik...

Re: Dash cam footage from Abbotsford

Not that it would help here but I always stop far enough back that I can see the tires of the car ahead of me. It would seem to me that in a pinch I could wheel out to either side. If you had the time.

If it wasn't a brake failure then too much speed and complacency

Re: Where to Stick the Stick? Dip stick ideas required LZ24 front sump

The L20B is 20mm taller than the stock L16, and the Z24 is 20mm taller than the L20B. Lets hope so. I'm only going from an L20B to a Z series block so 20mm / 3/4". If the L20B makes 95 hp (on a good day) then just the 20% displacement increase should net me close to 120 hp. Compression will be just ...

Re: Where to Stick the Stick? Dip stick ideas required LZ24 front sump

Interesting as I've built an LZ24 also but I think I'm calling it an L24B as there is already an L24 L6 out there and this is a nod to the L20 and the L20B. It's for my 710 and I have a spare L20B 710 oil pan so nothing changes there just the larger displacement block above it. Most car oil pans are...

Re: Stripped top starter bolt

I was also trying to avoid drilling through the metal plate that is sandwiched in-between the block and the transmission. The plate hole is 7/16" the bolt is only 3/8" The holes are not blind, just drill out the threads enough so you can get a longer bolt through from the other side. Use a nut an w...

Re: a87 head

Not that I know of other than using a borescope camera in the spark plug hole. L18 engines, used for barely one year in and around '74, had A87 heads and the earliest use of the L20B in the '74 610 had them. All other L20Bs from '75 on had U67 and the later W58 heads. I did briefly have a closed cha...

Re: dogleg trans info

I was discussing the 63A elsewhere tonight so I'll just leave this here.... If talking about the L and A series doglegs, they are the same inside and only the front case is different to reflect the engine bolt pattern. The Z series dogleg, (yes there was one) besides having a different engine bolt p...

Re: dogleg trans info

Any body make one of those "short shifters" for the dogleg? Or one that can be modded to work... My opinion.... The shifter should be close to the steering wheel and your hand should just drop down onto the ball easily and naturally and every gear should be within range with right shoulder never le...
