  1. I had a similar problem with my oil filter, won't get into that but what I found was... Stock is a S8A. . 4.5 inches long A bosch 3402 will work and is 3.75 long.. Also bosch 3321 is 3.25 inches long Also stp s7328 is 3.25 inches. And I won't even mention the fram....
  2. Would be a safe idea... last thing you wanna be doing is idling with no oil pressure ... How is the quality of wix filters?.... any chance they are shitty like fram.... I used a fram when I first started my engine after I broke it in i switched to a bosch.... big difference... my idle oil pressure increased dramatically just by using a better quality filter....
  3. You can always add whatever you want to your original gas tank hogie.... I bought one of these as a pick up tube to change my 1/4 pickup to a 3/8 pickup tube... it's an npt fitting and you cut the tube to whatever length you want... radiator shop did it for me... not sure if they have different sizes or not, never looked beyond what I needed...
  4. Probably the only reason the light is going off is the pressure release valve... there is a ball valve where the oil filter goes.... at a certain pressure it opens bypassing the filter to maintain oil flow if the filter became clogged.... the oil pressure sensor light is after the filter/valve So personally I think your pump is fine but sounds line a block on the adaptor.. Can you remove the adaptor? Maybe something is blocking the line or it has to be positioned a certain way... But that's my opinion...

    Same here.... found mine.... It's been sand blasted clean and painted with por15 . .. I don't know where anyone lives but I am up in Massachusetts.. if hogie is closer and gets you on the road quicker by all means go with him....

    Stroffgren he still has his 2 piece driveshaft.... Hobo I think they are different... at least the rubber part of the carrier bearing are.. the 620 carrier is round while the 521 has a wierd shape.... little wings or something on the bottom.... anti rotation or something... no idea....

    I might have what you need.... Do you need both pieces or just that bottom?... I am using the top, almost as a catch incase something went wrong but I am not using that bottom piece. I used a carrier bearing from a volvo on mine... had a nice bracket built in to bolt it down... I need to locate in my garage but I am sure I have it....
  9. Do you have a hidden spot on the truck or any old fenders or something where you can try your idea .... Maybe even talk to an automotive paint supplier they may have a better idea of a product you can use....
  10. That's good info for me too, when I finally swap mine.... thanks...
  11. Try this list if you want to verify.... it's an eBay listing..... 20 + 5.... could even call them.....
  12. I was also told to use the shims and front plate that go with the l series bellhousing...
  13. So i can only assume your doing the same swap... l series bellhousing on a 71b transmission... this is what datzenmike said I needed....
  14. Is that a 71b series transmission?... if mike doesnt chim in i think I have the part number.... you need the 56mm right?

    My 1971 521

    Datsun grill emblem?.... are we suppose to have one? I did this on mine because I only had one fender emblem.....
  16. Check the valve lash too. From our conversation earlier it seemed like the machine shop set it a little loose....
  17. That's one way.... auto parts store sells a make your own gasket matterial.... just make sure it's ok for gas.... I remember seeing 2 different types when I bought some....
  18. This should work?... do they look like this...? Saw the same part number on ebay... $14 shipped from red line....
  19. That look exactly like the transmission in my basment.... short 71b.... Mine did have Zl71b in raised letters on the side...
  20. Willz didn't go, and my dyno run is almost irrelevant ( I thought I put it in this thread)... either way I had to much fuel pressure. Afr ratio was ok at idle But basically at 2000rpm afr was up to 14, spiked lean when I went full throttle then afr dropped to about 9 or 10, then back up to 12 around 3500rpm till 5000rpm... And so far I've noticed no surging with the Holley regulator, seemed pretty steady, dropped about 1 psi from idle to full throttle but stayed stable .... How much does the pump matter? Maybe the type of pump and volume may make a differece to how the regulator performs not sure...
  21. Not sure timing will help with the air fuel.... I asked that during my dyno run... I was rich and I asked about adjusting the timing more? the guy at the dyno said it wouldn't matter to much till I adjusted my jets.... Might be time for you to look inside the carb and see what you have for jets, and even what size venturis.. my initial thought is to decrease the size of the air corrector.. Is it more throttle position related? What about your rpm range your running while testing? On the dyno I went wide open at 2500 up to 5000 for a baseline....
  22. I measures mine and a 2 1/8 id pipe is what should slip over the dome....
