  1. Past hour
  2. DGEV you hit the throttle pedal once to set the the choke for a cold morning start, it will idle at abou 1800 rpm and as the engine warms up the idle will drop. If you want it off the fast idle cam tap the throttle. the fast idle cam has 2 positions, the largest is the fast idle at about 1800 rpm and the smaller step idles at about a 1000 rpm.

    Jeez, solexes. I thought they were DCOE’s at first. Here’s what the tube on my L20 block looks like:

    That was my plan but the bolt kit I bought only came with fuel pump block off plate bolts. I could go electric as that is what it is before but was trying to keep it simple. I know those fuel inlets are facing the wrong direction. PO must have ran the fuel line behind the head and I have to buy a 90 facing the other direction if I want to run the line in the front. I thought it was supposed to be in the front anyway? Especially if I run a mechanical pump? I have a black powder donated cover on my l16 I can use and the one that came with the engine is black but tore up. I spent some $$$ with Riley as well but I think more with Taka/Kyusha House than anywhere else. It’s a mikuni intake.

    Damn that looks good. Are you keeping the mechanical fuel pump? The inlets on the carbs look like they'll need to be reversed, unless you run the fuel tubing up from the rear. Valve cover would look good as-is, or maybe powdercoat wrinkle black. Or maybe a goldish color that matches all of the yellow zinc fasteners. I've been going nuts, buying everything up from Riley at Lynchburg Nissan. I need to find someone who does soda blasting to have my front cover refinished. Which intake manifold is that?

    Well finding all types of surprises with all the shit I bought but no mind as I am not anywhere closer to putting this engine in. At least it looks good. what color valve cover? I like red but with a blue truck going to look like Superman.

    Pretty sure that is what this engine came out of but has a u60 head on it.

    I take it back there was one year the side mount block vent was used. The '74 610 which was the first use of an L20B using the L16 exhaust header and probably has an A87 head on it. That's pretty unique.
  12. Industrialized countries have the lowest birth rates. Well educated women have the lowest birth rates. This is because of the horrendous cost of raising a child combined with extremely good survival rates in developed countries. There is no advantage to having 12 children, unlike some countries where it is your retirement plan. Bill Gates has a vaccine that sterilizes???? Gates probably won't be around to sue? Even if alive, is suing him rally worth the bother????? You want to sue somebody sue the Chinese Communist Party. The whole world should get together and ass fuck every one of them. (you can throw Bill Gates in with them if you want) If true, IF.... I doubt Gates worries about being called to account for it. Saving the world from itself is more than enough reward in itself. there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,there are too many people and it is not sustainable,.....

    King cab bed cover

    I will be looking into that when my truck gets closer to completion. I have a 1 piece hard tonneau on my F150 to keep weather outta the box, my only complaint about it is that fully open is still quite limiting on what I can carry inside. I had put one of those roller-type retractable covers on my daughters Ridgeline and that worked good except for the loss of say 8" of bed length due to the assembly. What I've seen of the vinyl covers is that the material shrinks from UV & weather and eventually can't be closed off again. If I were to go with a vinyl cover, instead of snaps I'd prefer to use the hook & rail method that Bestop uses on the Jeep Supertop - I had that on my CJ5 and the fit was nice and snug plus no worries about snaps tearing out of the material. I figure I'd get the cover made locally and make up the rail to fit on top of the bedrail just over the outside edge. A couple of hardwood bows like those on the front bow area on a boat or even fiberglass tent poles and should be good to go.

    Yeah it’s an L20b with an l16 vent tube. Came like that when I bought the it. This the correct vent tube? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-L20b-Engine-Block-Crank-Case-Vent-Pipe-Tube-OEM-Power-Coated-/153998902770?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 I just straightened the dip stick tube so I’m good there.

    Hainz has only seen straight dip sticks, haha. He’s right though. Have you tried actually getting a dip stick through that? They aren’t floppy like on modern cars.

    My 1971 521

    just pressed in both tubes. I myself would maybe put some RTV around it on the dip stick tube that Dip Stick tube is bent. all i seen are striaght also the crank case tube is for a L16 I thought you buiding a L20. those are the 90deg out the top then 90 turn on all the ones I seen

    Cam tower bolts

    I've used 3 in 1 oil to avoid hydro locking bolt holes when I rebuilt engines. It's thin enough to allow air to escape and gives the threads enough lube to cut down the friction on the threads so you get the proper torque needed , just a couple of drops is good. Just make sure all threads are chased and clean of debris / dirt.
  21. Hey there, my '71 wagon has OEM blue (turquoise) interior & white (color code worn off) exterior & came with a navy blue vinyl top. I searched for nearly 2 years to find the right match so I could redo the interior...not easy. However, it came out perfect & I saved the color swatches & supplier info. Truth be told I might have to do a little digging to find it but not too huge a deal. I have lots of pics, too. I'd be more than happy to share anything that might be helpful to your project. I had it done about 3 years ago & shared some pics here on the forum so they're here somewhere. Here are a couple of "before pics" though of what I started with.

    A clamp that holds the heater hose bolts to the tab on the dip stick tube.
