Yea... The motor is easy If I had a crossmember and driveshaft, heh. Well... And an oil pick-up and pan.

So... I'm stuck on what I should do, heh.

My oil pan is fücked (fücked, fücked, fücked). It drips. I was supposed to get another but apparently now it's not happening.

Not really... Don't forget if you try this HL deal, you'll need to drop one in there.

That thing, is in DIRE need to be cleaned up..
If I were you, I'd take the head off and clean it up, clean the valves... get rid of some carbon and what not, take that valve-cover to some 320 grit sandpaper.. we sand it, then take a buffin' wheel to it like I did mine. Took all the scratches out, looks all mirrory now. Take them pulley's off and clean them up, submit them to a nice new shiny Datsun Blue, or Ford Blue coat of auto-paint. New Oil-Filter, new seals.. it's all good. I plan on running Castrol Full-Synthetic oil in my L20B, since they run so hot, I figured that 30 degree cooler part of the FS-oil would be a nice touch. Cleaner, too. Slap some ProLong into the oil, add some STP oil treatment to the tranny and rear differential, with some Slick50 gear lube in both.... I can dream, right? I Mean, I don't have the car, but I have the motor. Why not fix it up before I get the car!

Honestly, as long as it RUNS I don't care what the outside looks like. It could be covered in oil and grease, pfft, Fine with me just as long as it keeps puttin' along. And mehh this L16 is just parts now anyways.

Yeah but come on, you love the datto's just as much as I do, and I know, I knows you want your car lookin' clean. If you don't, then why not keep it clean just to keep it running? We cleaned up the engine bay of my dad's S10 pickup, and it ran 10x better afterwards. ^_^

Hey... nah, nevermind. ;)

And if I add stickers it'll go faster right ? ..heh.

The engine IS clean. I mean it's not spotless but i'm afraid to clean any dirty off a datsun. Under it you'll find it ws either hiding rust, or holding in the oil.

Lmao, well there's where the gasgets and the elbow grease come in. Man, come on, it's WORTH taking good care of.

But I can relate 'bout the holdin'-in-da-oil part, since I've seen a car that survived wholly on baked on grease!

I have never seen rust on an engine block, though. -.-
If it's that bad, time for a new engine. I wouldn't trust a motor with 'rust damage'

Weird... I dunno why but there is TWO intake/exhaust gaskets on it. And the intake almost looks as if it's been polished, it also has weird lines doing down the bottom... uhm... What else.... Oh! I don't think there are TWO matching oil pan bolts on there !!
