  1. Are you trying to keep them and they are forcing you to part with them? Is it possible move them out of view and/ or secure them with a garage type structure or even fence them in so they cant be seen? Or would that even matter to the county... Shame people cant leave others alone.....

    First thought is bad accelerator pump.... Do your self a favor make a build/ my vehicle thread in the 720 section you might have better luck with responses.... You have a lot of posts in random locations....
  3. I know you said Carter but which model pump did you get...... Find a way to verify your preassure because the weber only wants around 3 psi....
  4. Well the datsun to the rescue for another day... Got the Chevy ready to go and then the brake line heading to the rear decided to blow out... such fun...
  5. Got my vote in .... good luck...
  6. Just adding the ac. . Not power steering, I thought about an electric assist steering but the 521s really dont need it...... My L16 has a bit more power over stock so I think I will be ok... I feel ac is worth sacrificing a few horse power....
  7. What size is the end mill? Are you looking for a drill chuck adaptor or something to replace the chuck you have all together? I bought one, which of course I cant find a listing for, but It fit a standard hand drill size chuck and allowed me to hold up to a 1" drill....
  8. I'll post some pics of the bracket I bought.... looks of similar design to get adjustment... I'll measure it up and try to draw it for others to copy.... take some of the guess work out....
  9. And this is why I want the ac in the datsun..... Need a sticker by end of the month.... Shes a rust bucket but runs flawlessly... Ebrake needed a cable and shoes which of course the shoes are a day away... not in stock locally.... I can warranty the pads and rotors while I'm In there.... rotor have one month left on a 2 yr warranty..... sweet....
  10. I never had an air pump on my engine but that would be my first thought of what to use....
  11. I'll try to document what I bought and what I had to do , for you and others... As of now I'm pretty confident others can follow what I bought..... I think the bracket is the only hurdle others would have... even the one I bought was fabricated....
  12. I made a similar mistake.... I owned a convertible for a while, and during that time I started shaving my head ... Never though my head would need sunscreen on top .... well it did.... I became a red head for a week, what was worse was the pain from the hair growing through the sunburn.....
  13. Its possible you dont have the correct distributor to go with the pedestal.... While any combo will make the engine run you might not have enough room to adjust... What you did is correct..... As long as you have the engine at tdc and the rotor pointing to the #1 spark plug wire with room to adjust that's all that matters....
  14. Well parts are ordered.... Compressor .. Condensor Hose and dryer kit, plus 2 extra fittings... And I found this unit for the interior, only 4 inches tall.... Everything in total was only $520... Fingers crossed my planning is correct and I'll have everything I will need.
  15. Shouldn't be to bad.... The condenser will be the tricky part....
  16. I just wanna drive it more, especially since the 5spd has been put in.... highway cruising is no problem.... And lately it's just getting hotter and more humid... if I'm driving it's great but once I hit some traffic it gets hot quick.... After a quick look and some measurements it looks like the compressor should fit nice with plenty of room.... I'll be ordering that tomorrow... if I am lucky one of the other v belts i have from the alternator swap will be the right length....
  17. Well the summer heat and humidity is finally back and nasty, its making driving the datsun on those days a bit less fun.... Even my son commented about why I dont have ac... While I have wanted to add ac i wasn't sure how I was gonna go about it.... Well today I stumbled on this, so hopefully I didnt waste my money.... It's an ac bracket built for an L series block, goes where the smog pump would go and mounts a sanden 508 compressor like this.... My hopes are to mock up the setup and figure out the belt length... Then purchase and under dash kit like this.... With any luck i should be into this setup for about 650, then probably another 100 to charge it....

    My 1971 521

    Looks like you found something else to do....
  19. And after a day of driving around in the datsun the ground has been spot less.... I no longer have a typical leaky datsun...
  20. As of now all is good...... Not a drip on the cardboard..... I still wanna go for a ride tomorrow to fully warm up the engine and the double check the torque on the pan bolts.... Next up will be the bottom seal on the steering box...

    Pull the distributor and see if it the top of the oil pump spindle looks like this...

    Generally that means your off a tooth on the oil pump / distributor shaft.....
  23. Atleast you have an option if you cant find used....
  24. It was a cool look but I always questioned if it would function properly as headlight.....
  25. Well this is ratsun......
