    I can do that tomorrow.  I don't think it is a 510 accelerator pedal.  I think it's a transplant from another Nissan.  All three pedals were the same height. 


    Full throttle was possible, but W.O.T. stopped about 3" from the floor.  The adjustable throttle stop on the floor didn't line up with the pedal, either..  They still don't, but the pedal is more comfy on the ankle now.  








    Talk about ankles. Lol

    Ha ha. Another saved from the dark side. I am heartened, and begin my fight anew against strut braces, poly bushings, fender rolling, hood pins and adjustable coil overs.... and those little blue filters on valve covers..

    I love hood pins.

    620 hood release cables are available on ebay also.

    I have had the opposite experience Mr Tanker the after market hood release cables are too long for my 520.  But I expected this.

    I would like a little longer. The factory one hangs out or off in left front corner. Drives me crazy. But don’t have that problem no more.

    Yes do as you like but if you send both vents there you will be disabling the PCV and your oil will get contaminated/dirtier sooner. Plus producing messy waste that's not necessary, and for no good reason. Datsun street cars simply don't need them and never have. If they did they would have come with them. There is virtually no maintenance with a proper PCV valve system. Why make work, a mess and have to change your oil more often???? Catch cans are often used on a dedicated 'race only car' to keep oil off the track from an exploded engine.  Just like strut braces, torque straps, spoilers and hood pins, a catch can does not make a car, a race car. Don't be that guy. 

    So why can't you run the hose after the pcv valve mike ?  Emissions is one thing and I agree if it's. a stock engine I would just leave it but if he makes him feel good and feel faster what's wrong with that.

    I got a mishimoto catch can through a trade 

    Dude mount it if you want. Send the valve cover and case breather there. Run the lines clean. It’s up to you. I just got a 1300 valve cover so no more vent on valve cover. You don’t need it anyway. As far as case I have just run a k and n air cleaner on it. It’s up to you.

    What did I miss? What happened to the FJ that's already in there?

    That’s fj #1, I have FJ #2 in shop being fully built. I have 2 engine builds going at once. I’m a busy guy. I have a wagon also.

    Thanks mrbigtanker, your ride is incredible. Get better and get out there with it, and not on the mentioned trailer either. Hopefully some pictures of our truck with a backdrop other than our garage for a change. This summer for sure.

    Yes sir. I plan on driving more. My new Fj20 should be done with in a few months. So at a certain point it will be down again for entire drivetrain swap. Plus will clean up engine bay a little more. Looks like he’ll in there. .lol
