Re: L18 questions

I pulled a main and two rod bearing caps. Crank looks good, bearings look ok, thrust bearing looks good.

Re: L18 questions

thanks for the link, I read that same info in a post on a forum somewhere, it must have been copied from that link. There is some great info out there I just need to keep reading it until it all makes sense. The L18 was supposedly a running engine when it was pulled. When I get time I'll have to pul...

Re: L18 questions

I measured the bore and it is 85mm, I took a few reading with a bore gauge and the the bores seem ok. Cylinder walls look like they could use a quick clean up. I'm doing some searching but is there any way to get 9.5 or 10.1 compression with the open chamber head and different pistons? I would like ...

Re: Wanted - 510

Thanks for the replies. I've used searchtempest.com but never see anything. I search for "datsun 510" when I use searchtempest, is there a better search term to use? Seems like there are a lot on the west cost. I'm patient and can wait for the right car I just want to make sure I'm looking...

Wanted - 510

I've been looking for a 510 for a little while now, checking the forums, searching craigslist and even looking at ebay. Prices seem to be all over the place on the very few that I find.

Hello

I've been reading the forum and looking at everyone's great builds. Lots of great information here, I don't own a 510 yet but I've been searching. I like the race car that can still be driven on the street builds. I hope to build something up from a roller if I can ever find one, anyway hello to all.
