I can't find your comments.
Yes 3/8 and M10 fittings are so close if you are a newbie like me its hard to tell they aren't the right fittings. They even hold fluid after bleeding. I have to switch them all out eventually but don't have the ambition.
I thought a brake line was a brake line. In Australia you can only buy one type but here you can buy 3! US, English, and Japanese
Great pics Charlie.
A huge TY to all that came out to support our event.
We had a very good turnout & had some very nice trucks & cars show up.
Very nice to see old friends & make a few new ones.
A big TY to Charlie..Tony..Carlos & Chopper him for helping on the grill 😎
Plans are already in the works to make next year's event bigger & better.
Ill be posting pics soon as I upload them 📷🇯🇵🇺🇸
I still disagree on the adjustable cam gear. I've seen enough of them come apart that I won't use them anymore. A far simpler option is to use a cam degree bushing. All you have to do is drill the hole in the stock L series cam gear and insert the bushing, degree the cam, and tighten the cam bolt.
Another aspect to the L series that you need to be aware of is the stability of the valvetrain. Historically it is very stout, but building one to run 8500 rpms or more requires a good head guy, and the right parts. Then there's the durability, which is limited. Running up to 8000 will mean a valvetrain inspection and valve adjust at least every time you hit the track. A broken valvespring is not uncommon when running that hard. You could probably go a year on this without problems. A full race GT4 L16 valvetrain will need constant maintenance and a full rebuild at least once a year if no problems occur.
Lastly, what do we call you? Do you have pics of this truck?
Just for fun, here's a pic of broken L , KA and A series pistons from my collection.
This morning, I cleaned up the air cleaner I got from Pick-n0Pull yesterday.
Inside of the lid.
Outside of the lid. This needs a little attention.
These are the vacuum hoses for the vacuum motor in the air cleaner snout. The two black hoses on the right go to a "T" with another hose that were not connected to anything when I found the air cleaner at the junkyard.
There are the two controls for the vacuum motor.
i have an idea of how they work, and does this system also use the two port valve on the thermostat housing? Air cleaner is off a 1974 620 truck.
Transmission together and sealed up and new pilot bushing in yesterday. Transmission in today and only needs oil and shifter/console put back in place. Insurance ran out yesterday..... just as well, I get more done on it when not driving it but can't always drive it if stuff not always done on it. The Datsun dilemma.
