  1. It would almost be a cool effect with people that run an open velocity stack.... Don't know if it could be done with a couple leds or something... but then again unless you were at a night time car show no one would ever see it...
  2. Got this on order.... might shed some light on tuning.... If any one need me to look something up once i get it let me know. I'll be giving it a good read and will post things as they seem relevant...
  3. No... valve cover to airbox is technically correct... or you can do the little filter on the valve cover... that tube coming from that cranks case needs to go to the pcv valve on the intake.....
  4. And some one told me that it does matter... maybe even mike... I have a filter on both because I haven't dealt with it on my side draft yet but I need to... the crank vent need vacuum to pull the fumes out... I thought I was told the valve cover actually draws the air in.... I'm sure I'll be corrected if I am wrong
  5. Ya I saw that too... There's a little filter on the crank case.... I would definitely swap that... I think the filter is ok on the valve cover but that pcv should be hooked to the crank case....
  6. You could always pull the crank and pull the piston out the bottom..... If you plan on boring the engine make sure you reinstall the main caps before you do. I think you wanna torque them to spec too not sure but I did....
  7. Not sure on the gasket.... I got mine on ebay.... crossing my fingers.... I did see rockauto has one for about 55... not sure the quality.... As far as install I think it's the old school rope/string method.... Probably want an extra set of hands... Not sure but the way I was gonna do it was install the seal on the window... put a thin rope in the groove where the metal from the cab is gonna sit... Then I figure set the lower edge in, now as some holds the windshield from the outside on the inside you should be able to pull the rope out moving up the side and around the top.. it should be pulling the inner part of the seal out and around the cab metal... should be that easy... maybe a little soap and water too....
  8. I know so jealous of everyone who can hit up a junk yard for spare parts.... when I was in San Diego where my truck came from it was so easy.... down by the border the junk yards where great.....
  9. Hey motopilot.... I'd recommend against using a cutting die.... Just like a tap vs a thread chaser a tap will take material and make things looser.... if I was gonna try to repair those threads I would try this first... Plus no cost... just rent and return....
  10. I've always wondered where all the datsuns are.. it would be sweet if there was a map that showed them. Somehow have datsun owners able to input there location. and yes building a datsun up in new England sucks.... alot of money spent on shipping.... seems like anything older than 20 years or so gets crushed around here.
  11. I know it's different for different states but in Mass if i were to insure my 521 as a classic I am told it can only be driven on sundays or to and from a repair shop or show.. not sure how much cops care about that but I have zero luck so I am just putting it on the road with normal insurance... and I use Hanover....
  12. Thanks G-daux, kind of what I thought... wish I knew before I assembled my motor I would have used that trick.... guess I will save the info for the next time.... Distributorguy how long before your runs on the salt flats?....
  13. No I am good with the carter it's brand new but thanks.. i know I to get the pressure down a little I've just heard mixed things about fuel pressure regulators... I've seen a few people reference the holly one I mentioned with Webers and they were happy with it.... I know I am running a bit rich and just wanted to sort a couple things out before I start rejetting....
  14. G-daux does that process/coating mess with any engine tolerances on the parts your coating?
  15. Oh ya and also what about fuel preassure... from things I read it ran a carter p4070 with no regulator... seems to be putting out about 6psi.... I think it needs to be around 3.... is anyone running for a regulator?... I was looking at a 1 to 4 psi holley regulator 12-804...
  16. Well this post didn't go to far.... I guess not to many with the single side draft out there.... any how I have a question.... I was wondering willz and KoHeartsGPA do you guys know what your running for timing?.... I think I need to bump up my timing.... I've read in a few articles that the weber dcoe like a little extra timing... i started the motor with the timing on the low side just to get it broken in... I think right now I am around 12 initial and full around 34...
  17. Can't wait to hear how well it works... Curious how quickly it will start giving you the correct readings..... I so need to purchase mine....
  18. FYI I love that you wanna keep and mod the L16, we are a select few... I love matching numbers for some reason that's why I chose to build my L16 over a motor swap... I'm surprised someone hasn't told you to swap the motor yet... seems to be the trend. I will say getting all the extra power out of an l16 takes time and money but it is possible.... So do you not like SU carbs? I hear you can make good power with them.. just wondering... I have a single weber 40dcoe on my engine, really nice carb, but I never even held and SU, nevermind tuning one.... Anyhow you mentioned some sss stuff, what head is on the motor?... that's gonna be the biggest key to making power with the L16... Pm if you'd like more details or for any extra info I learned while building my motor. Or I can respond here but I didnt wanna clutter your build post talking about my stuff.... Keep up the good work...
  19. Nice build so far, love the 510's, I think my 521s was that same color originally.... so did you get the motor built yet?... are you still deciding?... just curious on your hp hopes.... your hopes seem a little high for at the wheel numbers but possible for at the crank.... I saw one guy post 104 at the wheels which means approximately 130 at the crank.... I've build my motor a bit and I'm showing 90 at the wheels, 105 at the crank... and I haven't even tuned it... hoping for another 10hp when finished... Here's a couple charts....
  20. I can only hope mine turns out as clean... So far i only pulled the wires I need to into the engine bay, enough so I could start my motor.. now I need to hide and cover things.

    A ratty ratsun

    Truck just screams character.... personally I love the dents with a patina like that.... but damn that bumper has to go.... I can only imagine how much one of those bumpers weighs.... sweet truck...
  22. Actually other way....no that black was my doing.... original color is that beige color underneath..... I painted the whole truck about 15 years ago with 20 cans of 99cent flat black from homedepot....
  23. Well black and yellow goes to the starter... I think the white is 12v, black white should be ignition and the blue acc... You should be able to tie the white, black and white,and blue together to make all the lights turn on.... touch power to the black and yellow and the starter should start cranking.....
  24. Figured I'd share this.... this is what pays the bills... This is the biggest part I work on... It's the inside half of a very large 4.5ft diameter x 5ft tall hydrostatic bearing.
