  1. My 710 is a race car, I’m trying to locate the underhood VIN chassis stamps, maybe I’ve got some add-on parts located over them. So where do I need to look? And where does the thin metal square tag go that has the VIN stamped on it originally go? Mine is loose and came in the logbook. Thanks

    Someone asked if the 710 is still racing. Yep, here's a pic from last month at Spring Mountain Motorsports Park.
  5. Tom, while the Roadster and 510 wagon h190s share the same 23 spline pattern, the axle housings are considerably different in width. Do you know which one you have, as 1300mm (51.2") is too wide for a Roadster and a bit narrower than a 510 wagon. Perhaps yours is a narrowed 510 wagon rearend. What car are you running that rearend in?
  6. Well I'm looking for WMS-to-WMS width of the 810 wagon h190. Any help appreciated. Thanks
  7. Datsun race cars in winter hibernation.
  8. Well you had a good builder, and good parts, but I've never seen that much damage in so few miles due to lack of additives. Ah well, sometimes shit just happens. Hopefully you got it all sorted out for the rebuild, the wagon deserves to run hard :thumbup:
  9. No welder needed for the spraybar install, just basic hand tools. But for a .500 lift cam and less than 6K rpm, that wasn't the issue to cause such severe lashpad destruction, something else happened there. Did you replace the pads with new when you upgraded the cam the first time or just put the 40 yr old ones back in? Oil starvation is also a big issue in hard-pushed old motors. Even with a trap-doored, race prepped oil pan, I've watched the oil pressure gauge drop 20# around a long sweeper as all the oil gets thrown to one side of the pan and the pickup tube starts starving the oil pump. And we really need to clean out the oil galleys feeding the cylinder head when our motors are apart too. Are you using an upgraded oil pump or running an oil pressure gauge?

    A man can dream, can't he??? Laguna Seca last weekend with SCCA, chasing Porsche Cup cars...
  11. How high of a lift cam have you gone to? What rpms are you going to while competing? The only way Datsun racers make their high-lift, high-rpm cams last is with a cam spray bar. Kits only cost about $100 and takes a few hours to fab in. I would seriously look into it... http://www.dpracing.co/#!camshaft-spray-bar-l4/c91z

    Not this year unfortunately, hope to make it back again soon.
  13. <<I just realized this was taken at DIA, now I'm wondering how they got the high angle, 4th floor center core maybe?>> Yep, Flt Ops and In Flight are up on the 4th floor, great views east and west of the B terminal. Here's another DIA shot from last year, looking west across the ramp.
  14. Nah, past the worst and moving forward :thumbup:

    Its a 510 BRE spook spoiler, cut in the middle and widened a few inches with a patch. Look closely under the "TS" of the DATSUN. If I have my story right, it was originally done by Patrick at the 510 Parts Outlet, since modified a bit further to work a little better.

    710 race car

    Got a request for updated pics and info. I sold the Formula Ford this winter, so its all Datsun racing this season. I co-drove the Race Wagoon for the 2 hour Vintage Enduro at Willow Springs in March, then got the 710 out for the Buttonwillow race in April. Its been two years since I bought this car and seems like it's finally coming around B) The rebuild of the l20b last year left me with reliable front-third of the pack power. Running a 4.88 LSD h165 with a 0.90 OD 5-speed for now. Chassis and brakes tweaking continue but getting better each time out. Safety equipment got an updating and upgrading, and I'm still digging the new paint scheme. Hope to get it back out a couple more times this summer...
  17. Come on boyz, lets see pics of your dogs in your Datsuns!
  18. Now that's a crankshaft! Here's a cool link to a bit of history - http://www.dhc-2.com/Stateside_66.html
  19. Photo of my 710 at Buttonwillow Rcwy last month by our very own son_of_a_datsun_guy .
  20. Actually she's a Rat Terrier, about six months old in that pic, quite a bit bigger now, about 30#. When they're young they certainly do take on that Miniature Pinscher look.
