Re: Am I in over my head? '70 2 door from scratch

So a little off topic here- Big Congrats on winning the BaT Success Story of the Year! There aren’t two ‘ostaylor’ car guys out there surely… Thanks! - The story itself was quite an adventure and getting it written and posted on BaT took some time (we bought and presented the car to my oldest broth...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Did you even figure this out? I went through 5 alternators between 2005-2010. I was stumped but I kept burning the rings up. In the end, I was at fault. I did this, every one of them but placing a HD crimp connector - and soldering it to the wires and triples shrink wrapping it for extra support, th...

Re: WTB: JDM Column Switch pack or whole column (UK Based)

This is an option that never came on cars here in North America - pretty cool, though. I've only seen drawings of this panel, to be honest - I have never seen a photo of the actual switch. I have seen photos of the LH-only switch on cars delivered to Greece (Presumably all of Europe), but being UK a...

Re: SUNDAY DRIVE

We all love that Gordini, and it’s owned and driven by one of the most honest person you could know.

Thanks all for dropping by. You arrived a couple hours earlier than expected, catching me off guard - but it was just fine. As Keith mentioned, it’s just nice to see people again!

Re: SUNDAY DRIVE

Guys, I'm doing drain tile around my house this weekend. But you will literally be two blocks away from me as you head towards Abernathy Way and the most direct route to the Golden Ears as you pass through Maple Ridge. As you enter Maple Ridge, hang a right at 227th (Red Robin) and I'm 6 blocks down...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

On the steering box question… I went through this last year. The top and bottom bearings on the pepper grinder are the same. I took apart three boxes to scavenge the bearings out of. All had bad bearings on the bottom, so I just took the top bearing to rebuild the box in my car. I suspect that this ...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

I missed your post from this past spring about bearings. I use the Datsun 6 cyl sets of Cleveland Michigan 7 bearings. The mains are still steel shell, the rods have moved to aluminum. Still one of the best bearings available. Unless someone else chimes in :-) However the 4cyl sets are off the books...

Re: Southern Oregon

Welcome to the Realm, great to have you here. You have a classic 510 in that configuration. I had to look up GP in Oregon - Grants Pass. Here in Western Canada, GP would be Grande Prairie, in Northern Alberta. Swapped an air cooled for a dime! Both are very different in every aspect. Both are cool, ...

Re: Side draft intake mani, size differences?

Yes, the elusive Mikuni/Datsun Competition intake is the shortest runner, thus leaves more room for bigger air filters. I think the Cannon is the longest runner, thus less room for proper air filters. Just a small correction here TJ. The Mikuni manifold is the shortest, but the Datsun Comp manifold...

Re: Osoyoos & Oliver Forest Fires

I saw yesterday that the back fence at Area 27 was on fire. The FB photo shows the track, with the hill behind burning. Insane, so many people have lost their homes and cabins in the back country. I was diverted around the Lytton fire on Canada Day, the whole town lost in 30 minutes. A good friend n...

Re: WTB!!! Datsun 510 2dr driveshaft

Hi Mike, correction on that length. With stock L16 motor mounts, I believe the OEM drive shaft needs to be shortened 4 7/8” a Most just go 5” a there’s plenty of engagement.
I’ve shortened many, but I’m a little far from you, I’m sure you can find one closer.

Good luck on the driveshaft hunt.

Re: Does Anybody Know this Car? Trying to Figure Out What Spoiler it Had

Looks like the photos were taken in the lower mainland.
Hopefully someone can chime in and give you some history on the car.
Hope to see you out at local events when they start happening.
