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...

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?

RE: Re: Toyota 4AG in a 510?

Do what ya gotta do. For years I kept to Datsun parts (wrecking yards mostly) when I replaced worn or broken ones. But when I wanted to up-grade to, say a 60 amp alt. I moved up to Nissan parts. Eventually, in the pursuit of perfection?, I started useing other manufacturer's parts. I have no problem...

RE: Are you a rightie or a southpaw?

Hey 'freak. Trucks are more my speciality, but I did own a '68 dime (back in the day). We didn't have any manuals (books), but I did get a book on Datsun cars that had awkward phrases and words, so it may have been translated. Wasn't the 510 called a bluebird, maybe in Japan or something?

Are you a rightie or a southpaw?

I've always liked the looks of 300zx around the time they stopped makeing them, mid '90's? Don't know much about them, but really like their shape. Anyway, while I was working on the side of the road yesterday, one pulled out of the driveway next to me, and turned right. Nothing strange about that, ...

Either way you would still have remove to re-build, so switch to the L 20 B carb. If it fixes the problem then the L-18 carb was at fault. And I think, yes, a power valve stuck in an over rich condition, would affect mid/upper range. Just switch carbs and see what happens.

The carb does have a power valve to give extra fuel under full throttle, and if partially stuck, would give an over rich mixture except at idle. Is your air filter dirty? The L 20 B carb is fine, just hook/un-hook the pollution stuff correctly. The L 20 carb has lots of smog stuff the L-18 didn't ha...

25 mpg is within limits. I would expect higher but it depends on driving habits too. Check that the choke plate is fully open when engine is warmed up. A stumble coming off idle is almost certainly a bad accelerater pump (carb rebuild kit will fix, and may cure over rich smell, and mid top end power...

A great big pair!

I was thinking symmetry. Nothing insanely big, just two tips, so you can see the exhaust on a cold morning. And not those loud, crome, muffler things, either!

L-18 OR Z-18 ?

Well I guess if you live long enough, you'll see everything! Never seen a L series stamped on drivers side, usualy Z series. What do you think, supersportsedan?
