    Doesn't pay enough for my hobby!!!
  1. So, I was sorting through some of my Datto stash and came across a vintage Erson Datsun performance camshaft. I had actually forgotten I had it. It is stamped with some vague information on the end, but I don't know what the numbers mean. I was hoping someone might be able to shed a little light on this, so I have some information for it. I'm considering installing it in a new project I have in the works. Below is what is stamped in the end of the camshaft... Erson 288 A S B99 110 182 R My guess is the 288 is the duration, but the rest is a mystery. If anyone has a data sheet for this or any information, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks
  2. In case anyone is interested, this car is currently for sale on Ebay. 1971 Datsun 510 Sedan, will pull it right up. The auction ends on Sunday April 22nd, 2018
  3. will do, when I get a chance, but it looks the same as always, only the fenders are sitting in place, as you can see on the previous page the quarters have been welded up, and the windshield needs to be reinstalled. I have a new windshield and seal for it though. Thanks
  4. Not really an update, but i'm considering selling this car. It still runs great and is very reliable, although I haven't driven it anywhere in over a year. I do still start it and drive it around the neighborhood though. I just drove it last week. I came across a dream car of mine (1957 Chevy Belair) and I need funds for the purchase. I'm looking to get about $5000 for this car, considering the engine has been gone through, the trans is rebuilt and works perfectly, it has dual SU carbs installed on it, all the U-Joints have been replaced, and now pretty much all the rust repair has been done. The car really just needs final body work and paint to be really nice. Normally I wouldn't even consider selling this car, but I do still have a couple two doors that need restored, so this isn't like it's my only 510, it's just the only one that I feel is worth much cash. I know this should probably be in the for sale section, but I figured I'd toss it here, since it is my page. Sorry if I upset the mods...
  5. Just bought these to use for my cab mounts... https://m.summitracing.com/parts/ptp-1-101-bl
  6. I think my plan of attack is going to be getting the pedal assembly, lights, wipers, electrical stuff, steering shaft, etc. All sorted out and working and then just pull off the 720 body and bolt up the new one. This way I'll have minimal down time with my truck.This way, all I should have to do is hook up a few wires and bleed all the hydraulic stuff and I'll be done with it.
  7. I already measured everything, shifter hole and front wheels are a dead on match up with this body, but the cab is 6" longer in the rear, so it'll stop just before where the rear frame rails start to arch upwards. I think it'll work out great. I already have the dually rear end and wheels for it too. I think it'll kinda look like a down sized big rig.
  8. Well, I picked up the "new" truck cab. I think it's gonna look awesome, but boy that was a sketchy drive home for 120 miles. The best part is that this truck cab came with a clean / clear / matching title. :) I also came with the big heavy duty running boards, I'm not sure if i'm going to use them or not yet. So, what's everyone think? I already know i'm nuts for taking this swap on.
  9. I'm going to try to get er' done in time for Shapiro Metals Steelfest, here in St. Louis, MO That gives me till September 25th to knock it out. https://www.facebook.com/Shapiro-Steelfest-1404628836486502/timeline/
  10. Hahaha, Nah, I'm sticking with my Datsun/Nissan stuff. This is the right time to do this swap, the ol' girl needs some serious frame repair as well, rusted and rotten doesn't even begin to describe a few spots in the rear of this trucks' frame. :(
  11. it said it wasn't allowed, but now it seems to be working, oh well. Here's a pic of my soon to be new cab for my 720 rust bucket. It's an INTERNATIONAL truck cab, which I think is funny as hell. You can't get much more "international" than an American truck cab on a Japanese truck chassis. :)
  12. Ok, so WTF? I've been a member to this site for almost 7 years and all of a sudden i can't seem to get any photo posting to work. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm still using photobucket, if that matters. I'm trying to post pics the same way i always have here, by copying the IMG code and then pasting it in the reply section, but now it does nothing.
