  1. That what I figured, but didn't feel like arguing with the guy at 11am. Too early for that. I gotta run to another place for a filter anyways. Thanks for the quick response!
  2. I'm up for an oil change and when getting oil was advised not to run Delo 400 SAE 15w40. I trust the ratsun dudes more than the Orilleys manager who claims to have owned many of datsuns. Should I just run the 5w30 and find the additives instead of the delo 400?
  3. Drove the Datsun to Westport. I'm still unsure what the noise is, but it drove there and back just fine.
  4. At idle you can hear it if you listen for it, when I rev up it gets louder, but at a certain RPM it seems to go away.
  5. Nice to meet everyone! After talking with you guys, I realized I should've just drove the 210. My wife and I were saying you guys are a good example why we like the Datsun/Ratsun community so much. We'll see you guys at the next one!
  6. Will do. I'll be on a trip for a week, so I'll do it when I get back. I need to replace the wheel bearings and front coilovers on the Titan too. That time of year I guess.
  7. Odd noises are the worst. I guess over time someone learns what they all go to haha I had my wife start the car while I felt around the manifold. I couldn't feel anything or notice any change in sound. I drove it around and you can't hear the sound unless really listening for it. My plan is to use a score to listen to the valve cover. I just want to make sure its nothing serious. Thats my main concern.
  8. Sounds good, ill try that this evening. Thanks again for the advice!
  9. Spark plus are fine. After checking this morning, its gets more louder/faster when initially revved then goes away. From reading the forums and what Mike says, I'm leaning towards maybe a leak in the exhaust near the manifold.
  10. Its the rapid rattle/flutter sound. Kinda like a card in bicycle spokes.
  11. Weird sound started today. Gets louder if I give it gas. I've felt around and nothing seems loose and I haven't touched anything that silences the noise. Oil level is good, oil is a few months and less than 1k old. The sound is louder on the valve cover side than it is on the drivers side. No lost of power, engine starts and idles fine. Below is the video I took. https://youtu.be/ZhfLqhFtQ7I
  12. $9,995 from the import guys in Ferndale, WA. Nice looking car! https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/ctd/d/ferndale-rhd-1978-nissan-silvia-jdm/7348668931.html
  13. I think we pass the elma rest stop on our way down. We should be leaving at 9 also. Takes about 1hr 40mins to get to Elma *edit* Pending the noise coming from the 210, we may end up driving the Xterra instead. Hoping the issue is fixable by Saturday.
  14. Thats what I've read. I can't pick it up till end of month since I'll be out of town. Just in time for birthday shooting.
  15. Thats the first thing I thought of when I saw it. Childhood dream has become reality 😎
  16. I picked up this 22lr revolver with a 16in barrel. 😂
  17. My 210 has the dealership sticker. Sorry for the double post, my phone won't let me add two pictures to one post.
  18. Damn, I gotta work till 5 on Friday. Maybe next time.
  19. Damn! My son would love the kendall Datsun frame since its his name. I'll have to keep an eye out.
  20. What day in Aberdeen? I think we're coming from the same general area. we take the WA-3 to 101 then 108. We could be there Saturday at 10 or 11. I haven't been to that walmart yet, so it'd be a good reason to stop in town 😄
  21. I have a Hillsboro Datsun frame that's in rough shape. I'll post a pic of it later. The last dealership I took my Xterra to was the Beaverton one to get the timing chain guide fixed back in 2013.
  22. $4k "1976 Datsun 620 King Cab. 6.5ft bed. 5 speed manual. Re-built motor 5 years ago, approx 8K miles on new motor. 2.0L block 1.8L head. Electronic distributor and fuel pump, automatic choke, weber carb, upgraded alternator, voltage regulator removed." https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/cto/d/everett-1976-datsun-620-king-cab/7347282506.html Probably belongs to someone on here. If I had the room, I'd be all over this 810 $1,500 https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/cto/d/everett-datsun-810/7346809609.html
  23. Awesome! Thank you, I found them.
  24. Awesome man, looking forward to seeing some of you guys out there.
  25. https://www.eastsidestreetrod.com/westport-rod-run/ Is anyone else going to this? My wife and I are driving the 210 (it's apparently too new for the car show) out there and camping the weekend. Our plan is to surf and check out some nice cars. We've also been going to the weekly show at the Bremerton airport on Wednesdays. Clearly the oddballs there, not being a V8, being an import and newer than the 70s. They're all good people though. They even have drawings to win gift cards and stuff.
