Re: Cam etching/engraving decipering

Yes, it's a nice package. Even with the crappy head it runs very strong. Even came with a light (10lb) aluminum flywheel. The head is an early square port. It has 150PSI static compression across the board. When I got it, the compression on #2 was 0, while the others where all a perfect #150. The va...

Re: Cam etching/engraving decipering

It is an L20b block, checked that.

Will get the 2.2 gasket and do a little splicing.

Thanks!

Re: Cam etching/engraving decipering

There I go again assuming shee-it. I'm thinking stock Z cam lifts when I thought .45 was pretty close to stock, but clearly not. And when I look at the rest of cam, it's actually a CWC casting not Nissan. Duh. It's in good shape now, the springs are stock, so it should hold up for now. The head itse...

Cam etching/engraving decipering

This may be fruitless, but anyone recognize any of this engraving on the back of a cam I have in an U67 head?

The cam appears essentially stock looking to me base circle wise. Lift computes to 0.45 in at the moment, nothing special, just curious if anyone has seen these engravings.

Re: Seat belt mounting location ???

Ok, more details. The centerline of the holes is. 3.5 inch behind the seat back. The two plastic oval air vents are both in front of this hole to further help visualize where it is. The bottom of the bottom vent is about 1" in front of the hole position. Further, its down in the trim piece that...

Re: Seat belt mounting location ???

Oh sure, no direct picture. What I do know, is that I built a very stought L bracket to move the hole to the horizonal plane, to put a retracter on my new raised parcel shelf. So it more less half way between the top of the rear seat back and the glass. It's quite close to the metal parcel shelf, it...

Re: Seat belt mounting location ???

On my 69 they are on the.vertical face of the rear quarter/sail panel just below the where the air vent is positioned on the outside. They are not on the flat of the parcel shelf or along the back vertical piece between the shelf and the rear glass. I will find a picture of what I did back there.

Roof Rack for Sale

The recent 71 2 door that I acquired came with many lovely features, but this is not one of them. The roof rack is just not me. I feel obliged to let it go to a better home rather than recycle it. It's not in pristine shape, I'm sure it's carried it's fair share of 2x4's, luggage, Xmas trees and the...

Holley 350 two barrel and Offenhauser Dual Port Manifold for sale

My recently aquired 71 2 door came with an carb and manifold setup I chose not to keep. It's a Holley 2 barrel and a dual port Offenhauser manifold. I cleaned up the manifold (bead blast and high heat silver paint), and scrubbed the carb a bit. It was working on the L20B that is in the car, but it w...

Re: Yokohama bringing back a classic

I've seen this coming up in several forums. One alluded to Japan only at the moment but will be available through other dealers eventually. I'd love to get some decent 13"s to go on some period wheels I have for the next 510 project, and some 14's for a Z project, again with great period wheels...

Re: WARNING about Hagerty insurance

So, with this information, the only wise action is to NEVER use insurance for something you can pay for out of pocket. Even though they cleverly sell you glass coverage, never claim it for the reasons above. In fact, remove it if you can to lower your premium. Insurance at its most basic and origina...
