  1. So do you need a shorter oil filter? Why is it hitting the mount? The stock should be an 8a... they are about 5 inches long..... I have part numbers for a 4 inch long filter if that would help..... I had the same problem because I modified my motor mounts.... for some reason the parts store sells a 720 motor mount thinking its correct for a 521..... Since they 720 mounts are alot easier to get I modded the metal bracket and made them work but then I couldnt get the stock filter on.....
  2. I would compare them and see.... Not really sure if its rust or dents your looking to fix, But If they dont fit that well you could atleast give them to the body shop to chop up for the repairs....
  3. I was thinking if you did them on the bottom with the skid plate could you also add a filler panel around the light... I'm thinking a one piece that starts at the middle of the brush guard that rolls down and blends into the skid plate.... Either french the lights in some how or copy the contor of the headlight trims.....
  4. Usually a donor is recommended.... then you have everything you'll need and things you may not know you need.... plus you can hear and see it run before you buy it.... But that all gets thrown out the window if there are no suitable donors for you .... Just try and get the most complete setup for your money.... Goodluck....
  5. Well it didn't miss fire on the way home so I might add 1 more degree at idle and leave the full advance at 30.... hopefully I'll get some more work done on the ac system this weekend.... i need to pic up a 30" v belt on the way home tomorrow and then get working on running the lines.....
  6. Been able to drive the datsun yesterday and today.... weather has been much cooler..... So for some reason I decided to try a little more timing in the distributor.... I took 4 out before across the whole range and It cured my miss fire.... I added 3 more to idle and 2 at full advance so I have 15 / 30..... Gonna see how it likes that.... Luckily I can drop some timing with the app while I am driving if I need to ....
  7. If it's a rebuilt drive shaft did you ever separate it after you got it back? I made that mistake when I had my driveshaft rebuilt and balanced.... Luckily I did it right at the counter as I was turning to leave and the promptly told me to come back to the counter... The shop I used lined up the 3 u joint grease fitting, so that's how I was told I could make sure it was in the correct position.... So if it doesn't go back in the way they had it assembled during balancing it wont be balanced.....
  8. This was posted by distributorguy on another engine thread.... I think its one of the best and simplest description of the weber circuits..... Might help you too...
  9. Same.... I like over..... seems safer for the lights too...
  10. Does it stay lean or is it just a quick spike as you shift? I've read the quick spikes are some what normal.... On the cooler mornings and when my engine is cold I'll get some lean issues but once its warmed up it's all good....
  11. Summit has them for 110..... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F333244292331
  12. I think there were 4 long ones.. they do give you the correct ones you need..... I ran them all the way down... I think one or 2 I needed to back out a turn or so, so I had full engagement of the nut on top....
  13. Looks like someones pulling his head soon.... And Yes I did use arp ..... If you look them up they list under nissan for the L20b..... Or I could just look at my notes and tell you... the head studs are part # 202-4201
  14. I personally hate any and all additives added to coolant to stop a leak..... I think it clogs more than you really want... kind of like using tire slime .... may fix the problem but leaves you more to deal with later.... Could you possibly use one of those coolant pressure testers and pressurize the system..... if you do have a leak that should get it to leak so you can see it...

    Possibly..... If it wasnt charging the battery.... Do you have a multimeter to check voltage or a voltage gauge? Battery at rest 12volts, while vehicle is running 14.2 volts..... Have you tried jump starting the truck? Or checked any of the fuses? If you can get it running with a jump and voltage If up around 14 then your altenator is good and your battery is probably going bad.... If the voltage doesnt then yes your altenator would be bad or not turning on..
  16. If the cab was bigger I might be concerned..... the vents turn so I can aim them towards the driver no problem which should help the passenger.... Like I said before other units would work and put vents closer to the driver but you would have to figure out the heater/ vent controls and I like the fresh air vent underneath..... I still think I'll be ok.... I'll keep a small blanket for the passenger if they complain.....
  17. The red and black are for your reverse lights....
  18. I love how I have a whole page now dedicated to how hot it was or can be..... And today rain....... Atleast I had time get an inspection sticker for my Chevy and some time to work on the datsun...... Quick pic..... I got the under dash unit just about where I want it..... I'll get some pics and dimension of the bracket later since it should work out.... I still need to add a couple more mounting bolts and a small tab to keep things from bouncing around.... but other wise it should be good..... I'm gonna switch my focus to the hoses next as I think I might need a couple extra fittings because of how I want to run the lines, so I wanna get those ordered asap..... I have enough to make the system function but I need to check if I can get where I want without any wierd bends or issues...
  19. If it makes you feel any better those bearing probably won't fit the 520 hubs either..... For some reason they are listed on every web sight wrong... not sure if the parts sellers ever figured that out..... I'll eventually convert to the 620 inner bearing on my 521 with a Mike klotz spacer since the correct ones are getting harder to find..... Keep up the good work.... I love seeing these trucks getting back on the road even if it makes me sad I had to leave mine behind in California... Could only take one home and the 521 was the runner.....
  20. You can try emailing this guy out of Oregon and see if they will ship to you.. Shipping won't be cheap but sometimes you don't have a choice... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F233187435838
  21. They fit right in with this build. ...
  22. The npt is actually. 002 per thread bigger... and being a taper you can actually eliminate 100% of the bspt thread and cut clean new npt threads... doesnt take much.... I did this to my block fitting to accommodate a valve cover spray bar... I have done similar repairs at work where someone used the wrong tap.... usually its only allowed one way, in this case they used a 3x4 standard pitch so I was able to chase it with a metric m20..... wouldnt work the other way around...
  23. I could be wrong but I dont think you have this 100% right..... The bspt will fit into an npt hole.. But an npt will only get about a thread or so engaged into a bspt hole.... The npt is technically bigger because you can retap a bspt as an npt without a problem.....
  24. Could he use that blue plug spot for the location of the new temp sender and then just a line connecting the thermostat to the water pump?
  25. Sorry I keep saying npt.... probably more like bspt..... but if you have a tap you can easily and correctly change a bspt to an npt thread of the same size.... I did that with all my fittings as npt stuff is easier to find....
