  1. Datsun 620 floors. Surface rust. https://offerup.co/5c5oOmQCGX
  2. I got one recently from oreilly's. The stock reservoir should fit too although I plan on getting new ones from tilton. It was about 7-8 bucks a reservoir when i checked. http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/OBH3/111837/01292.oap?year=1979&make=Nissan&model=280ZX&vi=1209293&ck=Search_master+cylinder_01292_1209293_3629&keyword=master+cylinder&pt=01292&ppt=C0066

    Wow looks great! Can you show how it's mounted? Seems a little loose.
  4. Yep that's the reason why I'm worried on taking off the cam towers. I guess I'll keep an eye out for a better tool that works without removing it.
  5. Nice, alot of great information. Now, since we are talking about valves. What kind of valve spring compression tool do you guys use? I've used about 4 different style and have yet to find one that really works without the cam towers on the way. Wish there was one that I dont have to fight to get those off and on.
  6. Im just worried that if the valve is damaged from rotating the camshaft wile the bottom was at tdc. Didnt look like it but Ill need to double check once I can get to it.
  7. So stock springs should work? Whats the clearance for piston to valve that would be considered safe. Also should I bother checking again for any valve damage since I did rotate the cam while the piston was at TDC?
  8. Mike and scooter, that makes total sense and your assumption is correct that it's not timed yet. I've just noticed once I mocked the head up, the cam made some scratches from the valve so I got worried. I believe that was the exhaust valve too! I do however have bigger cams Racerbrown 325r so I'll double check but I think I should be ok since I have stock valves. Thanks guys for the quick response!!!
  9. I have a Z22 block with stock Ka24 pistons on it. Does anyone know if I need to notch the pistons for valve clearance? I've searched and couldn't find any answer to this. I've seen one build thread and didn't seem like that person notched his pistons. http://community.ratsun.net/topic/39329-project-drag-521/page-2 I've also went ahead and put the head on and rotated the cam to check for clearance and it looks like it's hitting the pistons? BTW the valve hasn't been properly adjusted yet. Any info will help. Thanks.
  10. I was going to say chamorro but wasn't sure since you were living there in japan. lol. Solid project going on here.
  11. Damn Nice. Where do you guys find those type of wheels.
  12. I didn't have cams on there.. I guess I'll have to try that route. I made a homemade lever with the same concept.. I ended up bending the handle bar.. :crying: .. I'll check that one out.
