  1. Now before you install the pan, if you're using a gasket, put a dab of RTV on the seam where the main cap meets the block (both sides) and also where the front cover meets the block.

  2. Not even close to being the worst president, the current occupant is tied with #44 and #39 for worst presidents in my lifetime but I'm pretty sure 46 will make it to the top of the list

  3. The smallest (1.50) needle valve will flow a bit less than 50 pounds/hour (8.33 gal/h) at a fuel pressure of 2.1 - 2.8psi. Enough for 100 hp per carb! (Extracted from a manual somewhere for reference. If I find the source I will edit the post.)

  6. We had one of the Costco type , up off the ground propane fire pits and security was “ok” with it ( finger quote) .. said he didn’t really like the cheap ones that sit directly on ground cuz they kill the grass though . like this NOT GOSPEL... Your mileage may vary

  9. SMALL dab in both sides at the bottom. Push seals ALL the way in. Measure first so you know when they are seated. Then push the metal strips in beside them on the main cap side. Trim any excess rubber above block so pan gasket sits flat.

  14. Howdy, Looking to remove the front turn signal in my 61 PLG 222 since it's very faint when activated. The trim/bezel turns a little to the left and to the right, but I am not sure how to remove it completely in order to get to the 3 screws holding it in place. Any ideas? Thanks, Roman

  16. @Green BastardNo open fire but they were fairly relaxed about bbq'in.Camp stove's are totally acceptable if memory serves..anyone correct me if they recall differently. modesty is key. For those not wanting to leave the venue for snacks and stuff the "country store" on the grounds will be open during park hours Im told. Im also trying to get a taco truck for saturday but thats 50/50 at this point.

  17. Biden, Obama and Carter. Haa it was popular and I wanted to try it but it was just cheap beer. In my mind Jimmy Carter's handling played a large part in the why and how of what Iran is today. The era was marked by a slow economy, lack of available jobs, his administration seemed to have difficulty making decisions hence the support for the Shah at the same time negotiating with the opposition. I was on WestPac in 1979 (Naval deployment) to make a long story short the botched hostage rescue attempt and the Algerian agreement sealed my opinion of that presidency.

  18. I have ITBs, but they're horrible for a. Street driving, b. Tuning and c. Adding boost. My current plan is to clamp a silicon hose on the front of the airbox and a large TB in front of that. I've got a Buick v6 TB but I may use something smaller.

  19. The birdcage continues to take shape. Doesn't seem like we've gotten two far but at our current rate of one evening per week we're doing okay. Fortunately most of the grinding is done now. I've spent hours just getting rid of the old cage mounting points! Going to have to step it up soon though, the next race is now less than two months away! Welding the top of the cage in the lowered position Complete with gussets Cage lifted up to the roof and welding in the rear diagonals and dash bar

  25. Right now, there is used Mobil 1 engine oil in my 1950 Farmall Cub tractor transmission. It's been sitting for a while (20+ years), and a nice thin oil will help clean out the trans. Seriously though, I always use Redline MT90 in my modern brass synchro transmissions, unless otherwise specified.

  27. Hey all! long time lurker on the forum until recently (just bought a 510 from WA and towed it back to CA). I'll be heading up on Friday - very excited to start my build thread here and meet some of the datsun crew!

  33. Wednesday after much prep work and stump grinding, we started installing the "bird cage" The front bars sit in a very similar place to the old ones so we will be able to pick up the dash bar tubes perfectly. The hoop is now at the very rear of the square tubing along the sill. It used to be in FRONT of the B-pillar. now look how much room we will have! Another view showing how much farther back the hoop is now (rainbow marks old location) Moved back 8"? My back already

  34. Meanwhile, we need to improve the cockpit ergonomics now that the driving duties are split 2 ways instead of 3. Jeff has an electric power steering column on the way and Thursday, we decided to finally take the steps necessary to move the seat back. This is no small task. It will require a new cage. Jeff made the first cuts. Kind of funny to start with the door bars since they did such a good job protecting me at the last race, but this would allow us much easier access to everything else inside the car. Like the last day of a ga

  36. Saturday was WET right from the get-go! I went out to qualify and unfortunately put is in group B. Oh well. With all of our additional stops ahead, we were not going to be competitive even if we were in C as usual. Jeff started the race and was doing great! https://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2021_04/63621168_04242021swampthing(1).MOV.1e1ff15509d9b3c25d12d9a4eba8b11a.MOV We took turns driving for the day - staying out 'till we'd start to get fuel starvation. We were both really impressed with the grip
