  1. Ya the universal one seemed questionable to me. Looked good on the stock 210 head .it was my first motor build and I was being really picky..the first gasket I mentioned just fit better on the w53 head in my opinion....
  2. Maybe I just got a piece of crap set... the gasket kit i got came as a set for L16/L18/L20 was all messed up they even gave me 2 timing gaskets for the l20 and none for my l16...
  3. Hey found your thread... keep up the good work...
  4. If you get a rebuild kit make sure you have and intake gasket that looks like this... These ones don't fit right on the w53...
  5. Nice score, I've been told the w53 head is a Japanese spec fuel injecting head from the L18. Flat top pistons would be best with that head for the quench area. I have a w53 stuck on my not stock L16.. the fuel injection intake would be awesome to find but I've only see one once....
  6. Well your getting closer.. once the linkage is done is there anything else to get done before you can drive it?....
  7. If your lucky someone will chime in with exact size.... i assume it's a v belt .. I can't say exactly what size but the parts store should be able to give you the next size up... the part numbers are basicly the diameter and they have them stored small to big.... I had to do that and go back a couple times with my 521... seems the replacement alternator they give out at autozone has a bigger pulley and the stock belt does not fit... I don't think the part number I used will help you but when I get home I can post what I used for comparison might get you closer to getting one back on....
  8. Well I wish I new this before I bought a 4spd for my 521.... I had a ZL71b transmission which thankfully I never ended up selling. Just scored this... Lseries bellhousing, plus a shifter... Now I can make a nice short tail 71b transmission for my l16.. no drive shaft modification needed ....
  9. Hey willz nice work getting it running again. have you been able to take it for a ride?.... .. remind me if I am right or wrong.. has been it been off the road for a while and not running till now?
  10. Good point shacks510... and stroffregen I know it's related and I think the heat shield info is a bit more relevant to this thread but all the other points have been overly discuss in other posts... this post was intended for those who are paying attention and doing the necessary upgrades to make a side draft work already but still need to get the jetting right... a baseline for comparison.... I just didn't want this to become a check you timing post
  11. Well thats handy... easy enough setup... I'll have to be a little more creative with my lynx intake....

    Bump stop options?

    Ya I haven't really made a decision on mine, hell I don't even have shocks yet but it's something I will have to deal with eventually too ... I'll poke around and see what I can find... running out of things to look up when I get bored anyhow...
  13. Ahhh now I am getting off topic.... So other than the fact this looks like it cost 5cents to make... how similar is your heat shield.... And has anyone thought of or tried using header wrap on the intake runners.... I know people don't like it on headers but with the intakes being aluminium they shouldn't rot like a header would being wrapped....
  14. Shacks510 it's definitely worth mentioning so someone's not miss diagnosing there tuning... if we are gonna mention it let's at least posts some pics and maybe how did you mount it?

    Bump stop options?

    Energy suspension has a ton too. not specifically for 521 but all types and universal ones. I planned on just seeing what looked like it would work and just making it work ... all your trying to do is prevent the metal parts from contacting...
  16. So here's my setup for example l16 1mm over bored with dome pistons W53 peanut head, 10.7 to 1 cr, 260-70f Schneider cam, Header with 2" exhaust lynx intake, weber 40 dcoe. 4" air filter 32mm chokes 155 main 50 pump jet 55f9 idle jet 180 air jet F11 emulsion tube With this setup and while breaking in my motor idle was a little rich but not bad.. really rich in the midrange, and better after 4000rpm.... I also modified my gas tank with a 3/8 pickup tube and put 3/8 fuel lines in with an electric carter p4070 rotary pump. I plan on ordering the factory weber tuning guide, and some jet to lean the midrange out by around 20% and see how that runs.... This is kind of what I am hoping to see... videos of them running definitely welcome..
  17. Yes heat shields are good and worth mentioning but please keep this focused on tuning info specific to the carb setup. Because As Mike said there are multiple posts about sidedrafts and things like heat shields, timing, vacuum hook ups, the pcv system, etc have been debated about in other posts.
  18. So your all set.. Good to hear.... probably slight corrosion on the plugs .. by unplugging and checking you finally remade the connection .. might be a good idea to check some of the plugs for corrosion and clean them up a bit if needed.. ....
  19. I have tried searching Mike but to me the info seems more about dual setups... I was just hoping to get real info about single carb setups that people are actually running..
  20. So hopefully this doesn't spawn into something more than intended... I am hoping this can be a thread just for jetting and tuning info of a single sidedraft carb only... I see the debates about single vs dual and downdraft but none of that matters here. This is for someone who is running or trying to run a single sidedraft only... Whats your Engine setup Intake choice And internals of the carb your running... And whatever else can be thought of to help....
  21. Better look at my cobbled together exhaust.. I used a 2" mandral bend pipe to exit the headers, straight to the muffler for now... one of my first rides will be to an exhaust shop to tuck that exhaust up.. ..
  22. Well I stuck the fenders on with zip ties just to stick them somewhere... I guess I need the new tires ... fronts are 2" too tall rears are 3" too tall.. should fix my stance and give me a 1" gap to the fender.....
  23. So after a much needed break from working on mine, I was finally decided to pull it out today under its own power, ( which was awesome).... let it warm up for bit. So I could clean up and get ready for the next bit of parts ....
  24. The book I am referencing are for 510's 68 to 73.... the 3n71b transmission wiring shows no start relay... so i don't know.. I was trying to match what datsun Dave was saying he had... ah the joy of a datsun..
