  1. That's my car! Well it actually belongs to someone else now.
  2. I have always thought of it as a jacking point if you don't want the rear wheels in full droop.
  3. About 6 wks before they assigned me a guy to help with the listing, then another week tweaking the listing, as soon as I approved the listing it was up in a matter of hours
  4. Sorry Iceman, I didn't see this. The carpet kit was from Zcardepot. Well, because I have a serious addiction to projects this one is off to the auction block, https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-datsun-510-6/
  5. That's a really interesting idea, I think I'm taking apart my Z this winter for paint and those inspection panels have always been a pain, I may play around with that idea, thanks.
  6. That is an old plane, the channeled surface is something they did in the 30's-40's, as mentioned above, so many companies produced planes that were virtually identical to Stanley's product, so much so that you could mix and match parts which is why so many planes don't really match but work perfectly. Here's and old Stanley/Bailey I have, clearly made in the US but with a Canadian made blade. Always a joy to use it when I can find something to use it on. Value? You see guys trying to get $80-90 for them all the time but really $15-20 is the going price that I've seen whether they are restored or rusted out. Did someone say Spoke Shave? I'm a bit of an old tool addict myself, if you want to turn this into an old tool show and tell thread I'm sure we could fill it with the stuff we all have tucked away.
  7. Love the coffee holder! I'm going to make one for my Z thanks.
  8. Looks like an aftermarket option, can't say for sure but doesn't look like a Nissan product to me. But still, unique and probably rare, nice addition to the car.
  9. That would be this guy, he's made a business out of it, https://www.instagram.com/hammercane/
  10. Here's a walking cane I hope I won't need for a long time but when I do, no ones going to fuck with this old man. The anvil is made out of 1/8" plate so it's not as heavy as it looks, the ferrule on the bottom is a spare socket.
  11. Get that puppy on the road, do you think you'll be able to make it down to Zfest this coming Sunday?
  12. JesseC covered it pretty well, I would just add, choose your machine shop carefully. There are some real nightmare shops out there, personally I try and find a small shop where an old guy is in charge or is doing the work. Once you have found your place the machinist will go over all your questions. Reassembling the bottom end yourself isn't really all that difficult if you have FSM, it also gives you the chance to get the block outside with hot soapy water, bore brushes and hose to make sure there is no sludge or metal chips hiding.
  13. And she's done! Licensed and on the road and it only took 42 yrs.
  14. No, I confirmed that the ECU is from a manual car, since that 1st post I have managed to get the idle down to 800rpm but it still hangs. After a bunch of reading here, and the Zilvia forum it seems to be something these engines do, some don't have the problem but it is a common complaint.

    Not sure, I'm having a problem with the idle hanging high for a few seconds before dropping back down to normal, I read in a thread from the archives on the Zilvia forum that the auto ECU would cause that so I set about trying to find out what type my ECU was, it's a manual. A bunch of extra searching turned up guys with both types of ECUs having the hanging idle problem, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with whether the ECU is auto or manual and must lie somewhere else. I've ordered a new Coolant Temp Sensor because I read somewhere the CTS might effect the idle.

    Just some info that might be helpful to someone in the future, Kruked over on the Zilvia forum circled the component on an S13 ECU that confirms it came from a manual stick shift car, if it doesn't have the CJ25 then it came from an auto car.
  17. Whatever it is, save it! Looks kind of Triumph like but there is some Sunbeam and maybe some Fiat going on there.
  18. Noll, not sure if you are aware because you're a young guy but all those old gaskets were asbestos so try and take them off with a blade and never use a wire wheel.
  19. Finally got the engine running consistently, idle is about 900rpm, can't seem to get it lower without it starting to stumble, advance at idle is 19 degrees but when I blip the throttle the revs go up to 1200-1300 and hang there for 4 seconds or so before backing down to 900. The throttle cable isn't hanging up anywhere but the revs are. Does that sound like a recognizable symptom of something? Thanks
  20. This is with the clam shell cover off.
  21. My car is a 2 door and this is where the shoulder strap attaches, maybe someone with a 4dr can jump in here.
  22. The seat belt shoulder anchor hole should be near the red circle.
  23. Thanks demo, I was thinking it might be the Grn/Blk because it goes to the coil, condenser and power transistor. Just read through about half or your 620/KA build thread and will finish it off tomorrow, great build. Glad to see that I'm not the only one running into these problems.
