Devil in a red dress. 1970 2 door money whore!!

Post by eastbaysolo_73 » 20 May 2018 14:19

Well what can I say guys the title seems fitting with my current project. I purchase this car 3 years ago from Manteca Ca. Please excuse my terrible grammar and spelling. You've been warned. lol
It was basically a rolling shell with a running low miles automatic ka installed. It was stripped down to bare metal with solid floors and body. No headliner of quarter windows. Rubber was beyond ok. A fuel cell was installed in the rear by the PO of the car. It was also equipped with Troy's Wildwood brake kit front and rear. 280ZX struts up with z31 300zx rotors. The car was pretty much missing all the interior except for the dash that came with speed hut gauges (lucky for me). It was pretty much missing all the nobs and switches on the dash. Still is heheh. It had a honda seat installed and grant steering wheel which are no longer in the car. The rear suspension was stock with no exhaust system.
The motor was running but was in limp mode. I checked the ECU and found per Jim Wolfs website that infact it was a single cam ECU they re-pinded to run a dual cam motor. So the car was supposed to have all the trim pieces and bumpers. But upon delivery it didn't have any of those items the PO claimed to have. I got a bunch of boxes well with junk. lol nothing that I could use or save for the car. No bumpers just bumper brackets. Any how here's some photos of me picking up the car and bringing her home. My wife was not happy to say the least as I pulled up with what she called a ugly box on wheels. LMAO


And finally home at my house.

The plan was to keep the KA stock and have the car painted and make a runner out of her. Well that shortly changed after I got a ride in my buddy's KAT 510. I pulled the motor and sent it off to get rebuilt with forged bottom end for boost. Not being a KA guy myself having had a boosted b13 Sentra Se-r made it tuff but since I had the motor already I was like what the hell I'm gonna roll with it.
The attachment pulling.jpg is no longer available
I pulled the cross member and had Daft innovations in Manteca change the mounts to 240sx mounts because I didn't like running the 510 mounts. I can't find any of those cross member photos as my Mac for the first time in 8 years crashed and I lost a bunch of photos.



Thats it for now I will keep updating as I have time.. Hope you guys are enjoying these photos. Cause they are a pain to resize 1 by 1. I need a program or something to do them all at once.

Re: re-sizing pictures...I highlight ONE picture...then...CONTROL A...that will select ALL pictures...then resize pictures...that SHOULD do them as a batch.

If pictures are larger than about 420'ish KB, they will not load

Thanks for the tip I will try that. The photos are smaller than that. Not sure why the didn't load. They load fine in preview mode?

The size limit on the site is 700kb. I try to get mine as close to that as possible.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Another alternative is to register on imgur (free) and upload pics there, then you can surround them in {img}{/img} tags (replace {} with []). No real size limit and you don't cost the510realm bandwidth or storage! :)

Can't wait to see your pics in full!

Spencer must have increased the photo size when he fixed things, which is good as the smaller resolution made things kinda fuzzy.

I sized them down pretty small.

The issue is when I load 5 photos and hit the preview button they all show up. Then when I submit the post it says photos no longer available.

Ok so after the great advice I got some of my photo on IMGUR and here's a test run.
Found a photo of how I had the cross member modified to 240sx mounts which work for both KA/SR swaps.
I didn't like using the factory Datsun mounts so this is why I went this way.
Heres a before shot.

and Heres the after shot of the cross member.

Here's the other photos I couldn't load

So here's a photo of the KA installed that was running lol. Before I pulled it out and sent it out to get hooked up for boost.
Image

Wasn't a super clean install by the PO but from what I can tell with owning a Datsun that seems to always be the case. Always fixing what others did.
Any how got the motor out and sent it off.

Mean while the machine shop had the motor and doing there thing, I got lucky and scored this CV axle kit with LSD R160 3:70 Gears. I sold the R160 because I got a great deal on a Subie 2014 R180 torsen diff 3:54 of Craigslist.
Image
Also picked up some Rubber Seals from Datsport while I waited.
Image

Picked up some rear coil overs from Troy and idle arm.
Image
After doing research on turbo KA set ups and SR set ups.I decided on running a GT2871R dual ball bearing turbo from Garrett. Its rated for 400HP and is a quick spooling turbo. For a street car I figured that would be the best route. Granted my power goals for the KA at the time was to reach a healthy and reliable 250hp to 300hp if possible. Picked up the turbo locally form ATP turbo in Hayward CA.
Image
Well thats it for now. Im trying to compile the remaining photos I was able to save after my computer crashed. Its gonna be difficult to build a time line with the photos I have cause I'm missing many. But I'll do my best.
