Doesn't Solidworks have a rusty Datsun sheetmetal surface option? That chromey one is too good!

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

I wonder if this engine was originally from a car with an automatic transmission... ...and that there is a very remotely possible that someone left an automatic spacer on the crank before they put on the flywheel. I used the pictures from an ebay auction by seller "baddoor250" (thank you, ...
