    Welcome. Don't be afraid to share some more pics and background story of the car.

    best clutch?

    Exedy is the OEM. I run that or LUK clutches.. both have been fine.

    620 A/C compressor mount

    Again, many thanks for all the thought and advice you all generously provided. I’ve replaced the cover photo on my profile with a engine picture with a red highlighted area. Is this structure a compressor?

    Fresh paint looks so good, even if just primer!

    Currently the cold air delivery system is pointed directly below my bellybutton. I'm working on a better diffusement system.

    I think it was a play on brake vs break. Carry on!

    Thanks Mike. Couldn't have done it without RATSUN.net.

    Wahahahaha that's Ratsun... right there!

    It works. Cost me $130 for the a/c unit, $80 for the inverter, and 40 or so in for power lines and cool air diffusement setup. I put the camper shell on so it doesn't look so redneck-ghettofabulous. I had my alternator rebuilt by a local auto electric shop before I set it up, $65. It puts out 60 amps. The 1000w inverter easily powers the 400w a/c unit. $300 for a/c. ⛄ ⛄⛄⛄⛄ ⛄⛄

    Upgrade the center to H150 and you use the B210/B310 driveshaft. I probably have a 1200 driveshaft I'm not using in my storage unit somewhere, I put a 510 wagon rearend in my 1200 (same as B210 flange AFAIK) so I won't be using it. I'm unloading the storage unit in about 2 weeks if you want me to keep an eye out for it.

    How? 1974 axles have the same flange but 75-78 are different than 1200. I used to use B210 driveshafts in the 1200 as they were easier to get, had to have an adapter.

    Sounds like I need to spend some more time on the tech wiki.
  19. I've done that a few times, but it's a rare occasion I get that hole drilled dead center... 😄

    FWIW, we've put B210 axles in a dozen 1200s and never changed the driveshaft.

    Draker's 1972 1200 Sedan - "The Pickle"

    I could do that, but would I have to modify the shaft? I really don't want to do that. I'll pull the carrier though, for safe keepings.

    Upgrade to a H150 center instead and you can use the driveshaft AND get a stronger rearend to live behind the A14. Doug has the adapter spacer. Alternatively, you can machine up a flange adapter on a lathe, made one about 20+ years ago. Later driveshafts are slightly shorter for the longer nose on the h150.
  24. Good idea lol. My method is drill, then dremel away until I can just pick out the leftover junk still stuck in the threads. Then no tapping needed, but takes a little longer.

    If running points 1.2 to 1.43 coil resistance, BUT you must use a ballast resistor, external or inside the coil. Factory ballast resistors are 1.3 to 1.7 ohms. Generally you want a total of 2.5 to 3.0 ohms. The lower the resistance the more output but this will overheat the coil and burn out the points sooner. With the alternator charging at 14 volts a 2.5 ohm points coil is drawing about 5.6 amps with resulting spark to match. Only way to avoid this is an electronic ignition that has about .8 to 1.0 ohms total resistance and there are no points to wear. With 14 volts a 1 ohm electronic ignition and coil can theoretically draws 14 amps. Close to 3 times as much and a higher output. Note however that the EI module has current limiting circuitry that prevent's damage if an even lower resistance coil is used. It also shuts off if the ignition is left ON and not started and the dwell time is increased with RPM to maintain peak output.
