  1. Was glare off the painted dash an issue? I'm painting mine same color as the body 'cause I'm going as stock as possible but I'm a little worried about glare.
  2. That looks in the ballpark. Can you get a measurement on it and see if it fits the channel behind your trim? And didn't trim come in two widths, a slimmer one and a fatter one?

    Is double clutching literally pumping the clutch twice when shifting? Explain it and I'll keep the art form alive!

    Got my trans back from the shop--squeaky clean with all new seals/gaskets. Shop said the bearings and synchros were all perfect. Also learned there's no synchro for first gear. It has to be at a dead stop to put in gear.

    Does anyone know if there's any internal MG or British stuff available that'll the 320 column? I'm hoping all my internal stuff is OK but if not I'll need to track some stuff down. Or does anyone have an extra transmission or transmission parts like synchros, bearings, etc?

    That thing looks like a museum piece--so inspiring! Any thoughts on painting is Datsun engine blue versus leaving it raw aluminum? It wasn't painted from the factory was it?

    Great advice. I think I'll go back in and take off the top mount and make sure it rotates in the bottom mount.

    Has anyone done a rebuild on a 320 column shift transmission? I think I remember hearing that it's an MG copy and MG gaskets and seals might swap in.

    Great fix! You're whole build is really amazing.
  10. I bought an old reconditioned Lucas MG distributer instead that has parts readily available and fits the stock mount.

    Those look damn close. I bought roadster ones and they were too tall. I had to shape them down using a sanding disk on a grinder. They bolt through which I like but if I were to do it again I'd buy the ones you bought. In other suspension news, the 521 tie rod assemblies, right and left, are a direct fit for the 320. Mine just arrived from Rock Auto and they are a perfect match. Front shocks on the other hand were a little bit of a pain. Monroe shocks 32113 are a good fit but the bottom is too wide to fit the bottom shock mounts on the chassis. I took a grinder to the shocks and shaved them down to fit.
  12. How great would it be to find another sender that works?

    Wayno does this look like your 521 tie rod?
  14. Do you have a good local sparky you could have take a look? I've got a good local who rebuilt my stock generator for $100 and got my non-working wiper motor cleaned up and working for $20. Some of the best money I've spent.
  15. $149 is bonkers. No thanks.
