  1. I measured the wear on the synchros, and they're surprisingly in great shape. The trani had way to much play and I found the culprit, but I'm now looking for the gaskets and bearings. I'm rebuilding the truck for a customer and he would like the engine and drive-train to be completely rebuilt after sitting since the mid eighties. Where would be a good place to look for individual gaskets, I've seen whats on Datsunparts.com but their prices just seem outrageous, especially for the bearings. I'm sure this has been asked before but I was drawing a blank when searching for it.
  2. So, I'm in the process of rebuilding a F4w63 out of a 68 520. I currently have the trani completely disassembled and ready to go back together, but the problem is I cant find a rebuild kit for it anywhere online. If anyone knows where I might be able to find one, that information would be greatly appreciated!

  4. That trucks looks sweet dude!! Can't wait to see it running and driving
  5. Well I actually have a 4 speed that I was planning on swapping in lol I got it for free when I bought an l16 for parts
  6. Not planning on swapping the motor but I am currently working on pulling the motor so I can convert it to manual, I just need the pedals. But hoping to rebuild the top end and throw on a sidedraft this winter. Also glad to hear you've enjoyed the build, and yea I may have messed somethings up and done things wrong the first time but with every problems comes a new opportunity for me to learn about the car
  7. unfortunately I don't have any pictures from doing the rest of the bodywork/shaving. FullSizeRender (19) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr A friend and I painted this summer with some cheap single stage and it turned out pretty good for a $100 paintjob done in a barn FullSizeRender (21) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr Yes, the gas cap is on it now More to come later this month
  8. Y'all ready for an update? Shortly after my last post in the thread the car was running again. I drove it around for a couple months without really doing anything to it and took it down to Import Alliance 2016. FullSizeRender (13) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr After I got back from IA 2016 started doing rust repair and body work to get it ready for the 2016 fall meet. FullSizeRender (14) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr FullSizeRender (14) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr I decided to wrap the car for the fall meet, the reason I made this decision was because I wanted it to be one color and it was a hell of a lot cheaper than a paint shop. FullSizeRender (16) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr Of course I went with the cheapest wrap I could find on the interwebs....yes I know I'm retarded lol FullSizeRender (17) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr Peeled the wrap off and drove it like that for a little while FullSizeRender (18) by muddogduffey@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr
  9. check my thread for a new update on the car
  10. new update: car is currently getting fixed at a shop getting fixed professionally by another Datsun owner. been doing more research on motor work o learn more and having people teach me more about motor work although ill prefer to stick bodywork and paint lol. planning on doing things more correct this year, fixed the broken window, do more maintence, not driving it like an s13 and more importantly the rear springs are back in :thumbup: . once i get the car back i will be patching rust holes, fixing dents, and painting the car. thanks for the advice!!! more to come later
  11. thanks sooo much banzai!! I'm still new to working on motors as this is the only one I've worked on lol. But I never thought about that being on backwards. Time go fix it
  12. those picture were all taken with #1 cylender at tdc
