Re: RE: adjustable timing gear

I believe Nismo aswell as Jun makes the gear your looking for.The last one i seen on ebay was from Jun and was around 250$canadian Are the stock settings not close enough? Do they not give you enough adjustment? $250 seems like a lot for a few degrees! I made a wooden wedge, with dimentions right o...

Nice and slow that's the way to do it

I posted a thread on NWDE a while back about removing exhaust port liners in a W-58 peanut, and generally cleaning up the port and short radius, pix too! A guy named Fineline cautioned me to go easy as he had made mistakes, and I said I would give him the credit if I was sucessful. So, yes go easy, ...

'80 (B?) 210

There's an '80 Datsun about half way up Van. isle. Talked to owner, said it was his mom's from Victoria. Body's in pretty good shape, 2 door, interior...worn, 1500 motor, no exhaust, said it runs. This was last fall, saw it there last week still. This one may be worth having too. Does this help?

L20Bees

The L20b sounds like a good option, but I don't know what vehicals came with it. If I'm not mistaken the Datsun truck came with an L20, did anything else?

Not likely in the exhaust, but maybe exhaust related. I don't know the stock '71s very well so maybe you can help. The '73- '77 truck L series, used exhaust heat to warm the intake air under cold conditions. The intake and exhaust manifolds were bolted together, with a valve to direct hot exhaust ag...

Re: RE: Rattling???

I think it may be that your timing chain is rattling, untill the oil pressure is up. The chain runs loose, as the tensioner, that is pushed out by oil pressure, takes a few seconds for the pressure to build enough to force the chain tight. As long as it goes away in that few seconds...you just have...

If you take a 450cc. cylinder, (x 4 = 1800) with a compression ratio of 8.5 to 1, and stuff an extra 50cc. into it, (450 + 50 = 500 x 4 = 2000) you WILL get 10 to 1 compression ratio. Or you could say that the cylinder volume (500cc.s) is squished into a 50cc. head volume (50cc. X 10 = 500cc.)Now le...

lock(y) 510

Like most manufacturers, Datsun was not about to re-invent the wheel every time they changed years or models. This means that the locking column may also fit the the 720 truck as well '80 on,(don't believe the 521, or 620 had one, mine didn't). Either way you will have to drill out the shear screws ...

Think of a balljoint. Does this rod in the end rotate or move, or is it frozen in position? I would think the rod would have to come out in order to remove the snap ring. Sometimes push rods form a hydrolic 'lock' to the valve lifter in an engine. Did you find the locking bolt from previous post? It...

RE: L18 pistons in a L20 block

Only the rod length is diferent, should work. However, once done, will you want to live with the price of premium pump gas? Is the extra output worth the extra wear? Go into this with open eyes, ask questions, and do your own research. Have fun!

I did find a slight warp in the head last night. About .0015 at the firewall side. I'm getting it faced and cleaned then I'll spend some time porting and polishing. Thanks again guys! Any chance you misplaced a decimal point? .015 sounds more like a leaker. Near as I can measure, newsprint is betwe...

The plunger wont come out of the old one, the body is all one piece and locks over it with no seams. It's a slim chance but... Look on the other side, between the two resevoirs, on the main body, there may be a bolt or screw(called a spopper bolt) that holds the piston in. Also look down inside the...

Great insight! Thanks! Is it worth my time to do this? Will this make much difference in performance? Make the time and do it. Should take a few hours (at most), just to match the ports to the intake. You could scribe the gasket pattern on head and just use a round bastard file and sandpaper like I...

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Are you a rightie or a southpaw?

My 'bluebird' was a '68 4 door, standard, IRS (had never seen one before),single master cylinder, and was blue. What I remember most was how much FUN it was to drive!!! This was around 1976?
