    Honda k24 in my 79 620?

    It is still going very well, actually.

    Dual Mikuni Center Pull Setup

    While searching for center linkage for Mikuni carbs, this thread kept popping up. I found another source for Mikuni center linkage from a guy who seems to also specialize in roadster stuff. The guy offers a number of variations, depending on carb type. I sent him pictures of mine for confirmation. He was very responsive, even answering questions throughout the weekend, and even in the evening. He shipped my order promptly, and it arrived as expected. It's a little pricey, but if you're looking at this thread, you know the options are limited for quality center linkage. He knows his website needs some work. https://www.datsunrestorationproducts.com/product-page/solex-center-linkage

    620 / KA24DE swap underway! pics pics pics.

    Picked up in Brea...my neck of the woods. I wonder if I've seen it locally. Back to the original poster...you kind of lost my interest when you put the Thailand flares on it. I honestly detest that look, but to each their own. You got me back with the Momo and Datsun horn button. 🙂 Keep it up!

    I've seen a number of S2000 engines in 510s. Even seen a video of a K24 converted to RWD in a Suzuki Samurai. No idea how they made that work. Anything is possible with time and/or money (both preferably). Even as a Honda guy myself, I have to say that the direction you're going is a lot of work for minimal reward.

    More or less legroom with bench seat?

    A fixed seat or a sliding seat doesn't determine the leg room. The thickness of the seat back does. I vaguely recall the Miata seats having a thin seat back. The bench seat kind of works because the back sits below the rear window protrusion, but many bucket seats will extend above it. I will be removing my bench and installing Porsche 914 seats, since they have a thin seat back. I could also cut off the seat back just below the rear window protrusion to get it further back. But I kind of like the seat back....and the stock bench doesn't have one. Have you ever accelerated and shifted so hard the passenger hits their head against the back window? Yeah, that can hurt. Even worse if you're rear ended.

    L20B rebuild

    Thank you! Great explanation! In a previous life, I was heavily involved with race Jet Ski 2-stroke engines. Ignition timing was handled just the opposite: Lots of low-RPM advance, then retard as timing goes up. Just the same, the amount varies with carburetion, compression, combustion chamber shape, port timing, exhaust tuning, etc. Even that seemed so long ago that I've forgotten most everything I once thought I knew.

    L20B rebuild

    What are they basically doing to recurve a distributor? Not that I would necessarily do it myself, but I'm just curious what they're actually doing with it. Is the vacuum advance still used? If so, are they basically playing with the sensitivity of when the vacuum advance activates?

    Info on long runner manifold.

    After I posted that, I thought if I were really compelled to tie the carb ends together I could simply make a heat shield (bent piece of thin aluminum) that could sandwich between the carbs and the manifold - with a gasket on one side and isolators on the other.

    Info on long runner manifold.

    When you do this 'conversion' do you reweld the two sections together or mount them independently? If welded together, do you do it at both the head flange and the carb flange, or just one or the other? I'm thinking about doing this with a Mikuni triple to a dual setup. I'm thinking with center linkage, at the very least, the carb flange would need to be joined to ensure vibrations wouldn't cause the carbs to have any movement from each other to disrupt the linkage. On the other hand, I'd hope there isn't much movement in the first place!

    Info on long runner manifold.

    I was wondering if the front and rear pairs of the 6 cyl engine would essentially bolt up to a twin. Is the bolt pattern and port location the same?

    620 Brake Booster Question

    I've always wondered about this spacer. What's its purpose? Anyone remove it or make a shorter spacer and use a shorter rod? Yes, I know some people remove the booster entirely when doing engine swaps, but I want to keep mine--I just want more clearance.

    Info on long runner manifold.

    I wonder if that's the OER manifold. Some of the pictures I've seen of it for the 4-cyl L engine, the OER manifold looked similar to the long comp / Cannon / Redline / Harada manifold. I'd really like to find a Mikuni or other short manifold for my 620. I got one of those gooseneck Cannons, but would definitely prefer a Mikuni if I can find one.

    How to remove a bed?

    And don't use an impact gun on the nut and reach up there to feel if what you think is a nut is spinning. Yup... Ben, my lapse of judgement went way worse than yours.

    75 datsun exhaust

    FYI, my 1975 620 has the original exhaust and muffler. The exhaust tubing is 1-3/4".
