  1. If the market is flooded with oil wouldn't the prices be cheaper ? It's policy from the new administration.A roughly 25% increase in gas prices happened real fast.We had that problem under control for four years.And then Biden happened.

  2. Put a new seal on. You don't need to take the head off for that. Find the compression stroke, shove 2 feet of nylon rope in the plug hole (tie a big knot on the end so it can't fall inside) hand crank up towards TDC to compress the rope up against the valves and hold them. Compress the valve spring and remove. Replace the seal and put back together in reverse. You don't need a compressor or hoses and fittings or electricity and you can leave for weeks and come back later and finish it. Could do this on the side of the road even.

  3. Already got 2 coats top and bottom. But still worried about the edges chipping and trapping water under the grommet. Probably good enough but in my opinion best to not let it get under the plug at all. Plus the amount of rain we get up here in Oregon, you almost have to treat these like a boat hull. lol

  4. Test for 12v on the choke wire while the engine is running. Engine has to be running. If nothing there, a new carburetor won't help much. Put a universal manual choke in it. Way easier and cheaper than a $300 Weber kit..

  5. 60psi minimum from memory. I believe the fuel rail is regulated to 40-50 psi stock, but that is a guess, the service manual will give you an operation pressure range for testing the regulator. You do have a service manual for your motor? I have been running this pump from a ranger with my dual cam since my original swap in my red 620. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/crt-p74028/make/ford/model/ranger

  6. its not based on the transmistion its based on the pressure plate fingers and height. all theRoadster clutches I have done I use the 521/510 stock bearing . but used the actual Nissan pressure plate. but it that what they put on the kit.

  8. ATC 1/ What you loose switching to the Weber first of all it the stock air filter and the ATC. With some work you can cut the bottom out and make a new one that allow it to fit the top of the Weber. The Automatic Temperature Control regulates the air supply by mixing cold air from in front of the rad with air heated by the hot exhaust using vacuum to pull against a spring door in the air snorkel. This maintains the air at about 100F. At below zero the engine thinks it's August and runs accordingly. The warmed air will evaporate the fuel easier and improve the driving during the warm up pe

  10. Still don’t have the hood on and it makes it super convenient working on it. Maybe that fucking douche konig was onto something. On the freeway today in 5th speed reading 90 (more likely 75) and it was humming along. Still some weird issue where it seems To stumble after driving it for awhile but it still moves which is cool. It sounds great too n

  11. yeah, that’s what I ended up doing. The width of both bearings is the same, and I figure the new one will give a little better leverage.

  12. try moss motor sports, select shop by model select the 100, 100-6, 3000 from left side menu select suspension then front suspension. i purchased the fulcrum pin part 65 and it is a direct replacement for the datsun fulcrum pin (for my 521). the other parts associated with the fulcrum pin may work also they appear to be the same or similar.

  13. The correct cotter bolt is an M8 with a M6x1.00 thread or a 5/16" with a 1/4-20 thread. This first set is a 1/4" bolt....I'll have to measure it. Another set showed up just now.....I'll check them in the morning. Once they've all shown up, I'll do a comparison and post a photo or two.

  14. Looks good to me. I went with a turnbuckle set up on the alternator to keep it tight. put the lights on and run at 1500 rpm and if still above say 13.2 or higher its fine

  15. Well I tried a diode on the lamp wire down at the alternator and that did nothing.... I was going to try a resistor but I think it would need to be on the power side of the bulb not the ground source..... I really didn't have the time to figure it out.... Anyhow easy solution, pulled the led bulb behind the ign light and put a normal bulb in.... problem solved.... Also fixed another issue.... Since I topped off the tank I was spilling gas out my vent tube.... The vent tube was very short with a breathing element at the end.... I kept the same breather but ra

  16. Yea because it's just a coincidence that gas prices went up about .75 cents a gallon within a month of the moron's inauguration.I heard a news story that claimed higher prices are because the Covid crisis is winding down and people are driving more.I say bullshit on that one,i drive everyday and traffic is still a fraction of what it was a year ago.I'll blame the great fuel prices on Trump and the high ones on Biden.When the media covers for him you know it isn't true

  18. I just got my c notches installed and currently have 3” blocks in the back. My question is how low can I get with blocks without causing too many problems? I’m already getting some noise from the driveshaft (carrier bearing?) just looking to see how low I can get before I get the chance to start bagging my truck. My next purchases will probably be a fuel cell for the bed just to look cleaner that the gas tank and a custom exhaust by a shop as to not hang so low. These are the two main things I can think of stopping me from getting too much lower on the truck. also, on the mobile site

  19. I see a lot of the threads about ripping out the emissions stuff on our 720s but, looked for, and couldn't find post(s) by Datzenmike that suggested that doing so wasn't necessarily the best idea and may not help in the long run in some cases. This is a request to Datzenmike to see if he would repost the thread(s) detailing what the purpose of each of the emissions add-ons is and how they affect driveability, etc. but anyone can certainly chime in. Getting ready to take off my old Hitachi carb on my '86 Cal emissions z24 and replace with the Weber 32/26. I am reluctant

  22. Wet and Dry Fouling: .......... Dry fouling, or carbon fouling, is often caused by an overly rich condition, and the problem may lie with your air cleaner (clogged) or carburetor. Other possible causes could be low compression, vacuum leak, overly retarded timing, or improper spark plug heat range. That is from NGKs website and I know its to be taken as fact not sure what else could be causing it.

  24. I was thinking just use the one in the kit. It looks unfimalier as what im used to but they know the finger dimensions and use the 521/510 sleave . Exedy would know what they are doing just get the right sleave in there this is the actaully first time I seen a bearing in those NSC 581 kits. so I assume its match up already for that KIT!!!! I bought a stock Exedy 521 kit and it looks like the bearing on the left what is same what I pulled out(510/521) with the high part more in the center of the circle

  28. I would use the new one with the kit, big thing is collar is correct which it should be as you are not swapping the transmission.

  29. vic620 the 720 will not fit. I might have a 620 drivers window, will look. I'm also sending you a PM (private message) which is how to get to people off thread. Just click on their user name right here, will take you to their profile window, click on "message" & yer off!

  31. You mean the light is on until you blip the throttle? I have had that problem before. There is a related thread on ahexp about problems with Speedhut gauges, and they discuss the charge light. Someone figured out that a strategically placed resistor (or even a light bulb) fixes this problem. https://www.ahexp.com/forum/the-sprite-forum.6/speedhut-be-gauge-artwork.238342/page-3

  32. This morning was interesting, I decided to grab some gas on my way to work since I only had a half tank.... hmm... still only half tank.... So I pulled the sender and sure enough I have a full tank.. easy fix just moved it a little, I was either catching on the pick up tube or side wall on the tank... now it reads full... The other wierd thing is I'm having an issue with my altenator starting to charge , one quick rev and everthing works fine... the odd thing is once it does its actually working better than It was last year.... Same altenator.... One thing I was wo
