  1. Get out,be normal and get exposed as soon as possible.Trying to NOT catch it is just postponing the inevitable.It's taken me two years to catch it.It's a minor cold,that's it for me.Feels like every other minor cold.

  2. I was bummed when I found out this morning. I always liked Meatloaf. Here was a 300 pound tenor wearing a puffy shirt and holding a hankie. Too cool...

  5. Tried to post some pics yesterday of widened Dodge campervans but computers... Anyway, since these widebodies were made about 8" wider, some units made do with split windshields while others used wider glass which looked alright. SO if the Dajiban isn't wide enough for the chickenhawk, well there is an option... Since glass is probably the biggest issue, you could do what most RV builders do and widen it after the front cabin.

  6. I went with the kit from Troy Ermish for the 510 strut. Iā€™m very happy with the set up.

  7. You need '79-'83 280zx strut cores on top of this $1,200 kit. If you can find the 280zx struts why not just use those, with new caliper pads, and vented rotors?????? Look something like this... At the time all I could find were Maxima struts so I used them. New pads and rotors... Maximas and 280zx cars are over 500 pounds heavier than a 510 so these will stop you very well. These will barely clear the stock 13" rim so check. You can grind the caliper for clearance. The $1,200 kit should clear no problem. The zx strut does not just bolt in. You will need to convert to the 510 coil spring and smaller spring perches and top hats.

  10. I lost my OEM radiator to the solder joints on the tabs that hold the mounting screws. Too much vibration, after one let loose. The radiator was then cut open by the fan, and I was left losing coolant on gravel county road with little hope for a AAA tow, so I winged it to pavement. I'm now running a plastic one. I'd go with anything that isn't clogged or corroded. My plastic one seemed to keep the temp gauge a bit lower, at least initially. The first time that I changed the coolant, nothing came out of the block, but poking around with a wire, I eventually got the jacket to drain. There are mason bees, which would love a tube about the size of booster hose. People even order them for their gardens and farms. Then there are mud daubers, wasps, which really enjoyed the habitat, along with pack rats, of my not so sealed sleepy Land Cruiser.

  13. It is really smokey in this country, one might call it a white out, and when the smoke clears there might not be anyone left to do an investigation, at least anyone that wants to try to find the truth, as they likely would not live long enough to find the truth. I have lost my sense of humor on this subject as you can see from my posts lately.

  16. I decided to do a quick right up about what I did to replace my 521 carrier bearing... I thought it's own write up might be easier to find as a search vs putting it inside the part thread... So as we all know usually it's the rubber that fails around the bearing and there have been some ratsun fixes for that but what if the bearing is junk.... The option I was presented with from a driveshaft shop was a volvo carrier bearing, part number 1480-50..

  17. This did maintain the correct height and neccessary angle.... The only thing is I believe you just have to make sure you press it on in the same location as the old, so a measurement from the end of the driveshaft to the middle of the carrier is good to have.... I'll try to see clearer on mine where it was placed, but someone I know is doing this to there driveshaft so I'll see if they can get some of that information and I can add it later on...

  26. Sees right to me. Icehouse is the day before me. I'm member #9 and you are #213 In a thumb nail: This was just after Icehouse left NWDE as they were not willing to expand and improve their web site. They wanted to just have meets in a coffee shop but the site membership was expanding quickly and did not serve us very well at all. With help from Thomas, a new forum was opened with the 'mission statement' of being like a garage with people working on their Datsuns and visitors welcome to drop by, have a beer and help, or just talk Datsuns. With that, all or most of the old NWDE site membership deserted the ship and moved to Ratsun. The new site would not be funded by advertising space like many others and Jeff pays for everything out of his own pocket. A considerable amount I might add and should be kept in mind. Donations are welcome to his PayPal account. You'll have to contact him about that if so interested. At present... 75,800 topics 1,700,000 total posts Over half a million in General Discussion 260,000 in Trucks Over 200,000 in Project Datto 149,000 in Cars Not sure how Co-Vid may have skewed the numbers but: New members in past 6 months: June, 26 increasing month by month to a peak of 60 in September slowly dropping to 39 as of Jan 1st. So far this month 15 new mebers on the 3rd and 17 on the tenth and the month isn't near over. Members come and they go, some stay and regularly contribute. I don't have any figures on active members. What constitutes an active member? Currently there are 11 members and 82 guests online as I write this.

  30. If you want to replace that corroded thermostat outlet fitting, a KIA Sephia unit will fit. If you have metric fittings, no sweat. If SAE bolts you will have to ream the metric holes to the next larger SAE size. Depending on fan bllade clearance,MOPAR Aluminum V6 thermostat just may have enough clearance between the fan and the hose to be viable.
