    Doesn't pay enough for my hobby!!!
  1. Well, it's it's been a long hot day (98 degrees with high humidity), but the front of the frame is built and I'm getting started on test fitting the body.
  2. I'm using a stock transmission crossmember.
  3. Stock replacement Datsun 510 teansmission mounts / isolators don't seem to be readily available any longer. I've heard there is a gm mount that works. Does anyone know what it is? What's everyone using as a replacement?
  4. Ok, so I'm trying to remember... what transmission mount are people using to mount a 510 transmission in the stock crossmember? I can't find a part number.
  5. Mocked up front half of frame today. Old Datsun Race Wagon crossmember looks right at home. 😁
  6. Yeah, I realize that Wayno. The entire firewall wasn't wood though, plus the cars weren't cruising down the road at 70mph with the guy going the other direction texting and driving. I actually have owned several 1920's Model T's and 28-31 Model A's, but most people do away with the wood and replace it with steel now, because it's stronger and safer, plus you can't weld wood 🙂.
  7. That's down right scary. That barely counts as a barrier between you and the engine compartment.
  8. Wayno, very cool. That one is more of a rat rod, but neat none the less. Mine is going to be a full finished, nice paint job traditional style hot rod, but Datto powered.
  9. I dropped off all the body parts for media blasting and just got them back. Everything turned out really nice, time to body work the panels, get them welded together and primer everything, before flash rust sets in. I'm pretty sure this car is going to tick off a lot of traditional hot rod guys. 😂
  10. it's being reincarnated as a old school hot rod roadster. Using the first race engine, transmission, engine cradle, trans crossmember and some of the saved body panels. I think it's gonna be cool when it's done and painted.
  11. And happy 510 day to you too...
  12. 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
