WTB: L18 block shipped to Texas,

In search of an L18 block, unmolested, minor decking acceptable but would prefer stock height (though I don't really care about the condition of the deck surface). No stripped holes, broken casting, grinding on the inside to clear larger stroke cranks, et cetera. Must have original main caps. Doesn'...

Re: H190 end play help,

Mike, thanks for confirming for me. I really do appreciate it. Was pretty sure that's how they are from memory..especially since they're not fully floating axles (at least not in the roadsters/510s/200SXs). It was called into question last night as someone I sold an H190 LSD unit to kept telling me ...

H190 end play help,

Okay, dumb question time, and if ANYONE can help me out on this I'm very grateful...but on the H190 rear ends, isn't the axle end play set using shims at the outer bearings? And the "thrust block" in the center of the stock open differentials basically redundant? There is no thrust block i...

Re: 1200 a12 bike carbs informations needed

You have to run a fuel pressure regulator whether run run electric or mechanical fuel pump. The 280ZX electric fuel pump that has the gerotor style pump section that can be disassembled externally, and have the pressure relief spring fine tuned to drop down to a consistent lower fuel pressure. Gran...

Re: 1200 a12 bike carbs informations needed

What are the carbs? FCR? Also remember that bike carbs run on very little fuel pressure. Holley sells a low pressure kit that works with their bypass style fuel pressure regulator, if you can't fine tune whatever fuel pump you're using just right. Also, on A and L-series engines running bike carbs, ...

Re: Ray Reed Racing Manifold

Ray Reed Racing was somehow affiliated with Kissimmee Datsun in Florida in the 1970s. That's all I can find online. Just blurbs in scanned newspaper ads from the time and such about Datsun performance items, and all of Kissimmee Datsun's classifieds ads stated "KISSIMMEE DATSUN RAY REED RACING ...

WTB: pre-78 620 spindle with hub

I know this isn't the most appropriate place to post searching for 620 parts, but I'm in desperate need of an unmodified spindle & hub assembly for a pre-78 620 (73-77 with drum front brakes). I only need one, but I'm willing to buy both if anyone who has them doesn't want to split them up. They...

Re: WANTED - L Series Street Engine - Rebello - Ermish

No 'well built' L20B will touch this. Assuming that the "well built" L20B is "well built" with mostly stock parts, and redlines at stock RPM. Doing a total barnyard build 2.3 with entirely stock L20B components swapped over to it is a lot of work and effort to go through for suc...

FS: Nismo CA18DET clutch pressure plate and Tomei metal head gasket

At first I wasn't going to post these here as they're not L-series parts, but the CA is common enough in the 510 that I decided I'd go ahead. Nismo clutch cover pressure plate, 30210-RS550. I bought it brand new, out of Japan, and never used it. Comes with the Nismo paperwork but the black Nismo box...

Re: Timing chains with master links?

Just an update for anyone interested: I ordered a Beck/Arnley timing chain online that was shipped to me directly from Beck/Arnley, and it is in fact Japanese, and does not have a "please destroy my engine" master link. So current distribution Beck/Arnley timing chains are good stuff.

Timing chains with master links?

Has anyone experienced problems with master link based timing chains in L4 engines running higher RPM and longer duration cams? I just cleaned all the cosmoline off the replacement I was going to use and discovered it has a master link, which scares me given master link failures I've seen in other t...

Re: common datsun related injures

Yeah, I like to think there's a special place in hell reserved for such people.

I lost my windshield, all driver's side (left side) glass, massive body damage, and the trim along the rain channel.

Re: New potential products for 510's and Datsun from Mattndew76

Mattndew76, if you make me beautiful caliper brackets to mount my Mazda FC3S 4-pot calipers on my 510 spindles, I will let you touch any one of my rare parts from Japan for 10 minutes.
Oh, and I'll pay you too.
