  1. He works at a action yard now. Usually all the cars are pretty lame. Well.... for once something cool went through and he was able to buy it. Not at the normal steel it price but it's a gem! It's got a lot of door dings for only being on the road for such a short time. It's a 74 of coarse since it's a 260z and it was parked in a storage container in 82!!! It was an auto and didn't run. Since he had his fill of L motors and it didn't run he picked up a S15 SR20DET with 6 speed. He bought an installation kit off Ebay. Actually that's why I'm doing this thread, the kit was terrible!!! I tried calling and email the company. No response even though you can still buy it on Ebay..... The motor sat over an inch further down then the crossmember..... I've since redone the mounts, modified the chassis a little, and built a trans mount out of a T3 mount I bought for my 510 but it was so bad I didn't use. Here are some pics. The striped are painted on. Z's have a nice shelf for tools. Motor mounts before I made them 1" taller. Shop helper. He likes the red glasses. had to notch the crossmember. I did it before I modified there kit. Didn't realize it was so bad..... Dave had piles of spacers to make it fit decent... Gotta make sure sparks don't land on it! Had to modify the hood latch shelf. Gotta get the driveline angle correct Best I could do. It's all green though!!! New trans crossmember before I cleaned it up and painted it. And last I got the radiator modified. I like to aim the hoses close but I like to keep as much rubber as possible for engine flex. Can't wait to see it on the ground! I made some coilovers. Gotta find the pictures.
  2. You guys may remember Dave's two 510's, he sold both of them and recently bought this 260z. These are his two old 510's. He drove this one home for 600 bucks! Wow it was a score!!!
  3. Here are a few photo's I took, Carter takes much better photo's thats for sure! The boys trying to figure out the heating issue! morning!!! air damn, check! Such a cool place for a track!
  4. The S13 for sure! So easy I've had it memorized for years, just like the KA :)
  5. Sounds like standard 510 suspension to me, the steering box just makes a 510 feel like junk, that and it was Nissan's first attempt at pogo stick front suspension. This is my favorite quote from a amazing Datsun builder. "why can't they just drive as good as they look?"
  6. you stiill make the box.......im doing a k swap on my 521 and need all the help possible, thanks

  7. can't wait to see it back on the road.
  8. He did. I can ask him again. We are buddies I chat with him from time to time. He told me the story about all the ralley car guys saying there was no more power to be made with an L. Then he did that and smoked them all! haha. He said he made custom roller rockers too.
  9. Darren in austraila moved the intake valve on an L head so he could fit a bigger intake valve and reduced the size of the exhaust port. Super good idea.
  10. They seem super cool. I hope I feel the same way after I have them installed :)
  11. Why not do the H233 so you can use a stock LSD? That's my plan.
  12. The BFG's are avalible in 30" and 1" narrower then the MTR's. I worry since my truck came stock with 28.9" tires that the 31's will make it to slow. I did the gear calculator and it doesn't look good with 31's to be honest 30's might be a bit big. That too!
  13. Needed a truck with 4 wheel drive after me and my bro bought 10 acres. I had to get a Nissan of coarse, and I wanted a small truck. So the obvious choice was the D21 IMO the best Nissan truck ever made. So durable! If Frank couldn't kill his that's saying something!! After a few different beater trucks I realized that the smart thing to do was sell the junkers and wait for one worth fixing if it broke showed up on CL. I went back and forth between wanted a V6 or a 4 banger. In the end I didn't want to deal with timing belts and the VG truck I had wasn't any faster then the NapZ truck I ended up buying. Finally after looking of months I found and bought this truck. 1986.5 vin 5k with 61k on it when I bought it. Its got some wear but nice for such an old truck. It's also cool it's the same color as my bro's truck! He got his stuck!! Got mine stuck in the same spot!!! Need some mud tires. Not sure If I'm going to get the BFG KM2's or the Good year MTS with Kevlar. Don't want this happening again!! Maybe even get a Pathfinder LSD. Our property came with an owl! Ditched the dumb brush bumper and picked up a later rack. It was going to bea temporary rack, but it's to damn handy. So I decide this 100 dollar rack need some love. So I shortened it and added some tie down points. also made it adjusable to hold tires. It did have one issue I still haven't figured out. It sometimes doesn't want to start. I seems like a bad TPS but haven't put a new one on it yet. I need to get to the wrecking yard and get one. I used AAA to get it home due to cutting out. Turned out the be more then just the TPS. The exhaust plugs were in the wrong firing order. This was the first drive I took it on after I bought it. I think I didn't notice it because the way home from oregon it was all over 3k which I've heard the exhaust plugs turn off? I did notice a miss when test driving it. anyways its sorted.
  14. Carter made me do it!!!!! I think I need another set of LED headlights.
  15. For sure a 71C Here is our collection of broken transmissions waiting to be rebuild. All 71c's SR20DET, SR20DE a few KA and VG's also. They are all turbo SR clutches, 240mm the NA SR is 225 with a very small hole pattern for the preasure plate. The 225mm preasure plates I tried didn't fit. Maybe a FWD SR one might? I tried all the small RWD ones I had laying around with no luck.
