  1. Yup that bolt is the line that should be connected to the blue plug on the intake and or the npt on the side of the thermostat housing.... I think datsunmike said it should run from the intake to a tee on the thermostat and then to the waterpump...
  2. What do you have going on with the water pump inlet then....?
  3. On the side there is that npt plug.... that's where I installed my bypass....
  4. Does the coolant circulate through the intake even if the thermostat is closed or is that the whole reason for the bypass tube? Maybe add a bypass to the thermostat housing like I did then use the port on the intake for the temp sender.....
  5. I dont have the bypass on my side draft intake.... I plumbed a fitting from the bottom of the thermostat house over to the water pump to keep the flow going.... The more I think about it I bet that unit wants to see a location where the coolant is moving.....

    Fuel Tank Question

    I have posted this somewhere but I guess here to might help...... After getting my tank clean I replaced the stock pickup tube with one of these.... Just need to weld an npt bung in place of the original pickup tube an this screws in... straw gets trimmed to lenght....
  7. Ahh.... I cant see why the lower part of the thermostat housing would give any different reading then the intake or head.... I thought of another possibility... What about the drain plug on the side of the block ?
  8. Probably 3/8 bspt..... the only one on the head would be the one going to the heater..... What are you after?
  9. That's a real good suggestion... especially since hes try to push the limits ....
  10. I dropped the tires off early, but I just had to go pick them up... thankfully not much traffic and made it there and back quickly..... left the garage open so I could park quick and get back in the house..... I'll put the tires on early tomorrow..... screw this heat.. .
  11. Do you know if the rod bolts were torqued to spec and sized? When I was building my L block I bought similar piston rod combo.... H beam rods and wiseco pistons.... My engine shop torqued the bolts to stretch them and then resized the big end for roundness they also honed the small end for a better finish and to tolerance the wrist pin.... Just something to consider with the effort you putting into it....
  12. Probably not much progress gonna happen this weekend...getting hit with the hottest temp and humid so far this summer.. Starting to miss driving the datsun... only been able to drive it a couple times in the last few weeks... I did get it out this morning to bring my Chevy tires down to get swapped, its gonna suck going to pick them up.....
  13. I think I read it will cool 200 sq ft.... I cant imagine the cab is and bigger the 50 to 80 sq ft.. So ya it should do nicely. ...

    My 1971 521

    I think his measurement is wrong on the head thickness...... DP I dont think you zeroed out your calipers before you measured.... if you go back and look at the pic you took while measuring the numbers on the caliper says your over 4-3/8 but the digital readout says your under 4 inches..
  15. When your flushing it are you doing it with a garden hose and removing lines from the engine? I like to do it in reverse especially through the heater core and radiator....
  16. What ever you do dont add stop leak... it makes more of a mess inside then it helps.. I would flush it again if it was me... cant hurt..... And it honestly sounds like you thermostat was getting stuck.. So I would still check that.....
  17. This is right from speedway where I got it..... "Looking for a simple under-the-dash A/C cooling unit? This compact air conditioning control box is just 16" long 4.25" tall and 11" deep. This unit features two large 2" X 6" air vents in front with a three-speed blower motor and cooling control adjustment." This was the simplest with just ac and the most compact I found, depth and height are perfect......... any wider definately wont fit... You could do a heat/ac combo and replace the stock heater box and get rid of the vent/defrost levers ... then there would be more room and other options.... I didn't wanna mess with my heater, just wanted to add ac....
  18. Hopefully this helps the person who originally posted.... my experience was from about 4 years ago so little too late for me .... I already have what I need....
  19. I know what your saying and if a small shop I get it, but if they dont do emails then they should not even list it as a way to contact.... and maybe get someone dedicated to the phone line if there is that much volume of customers.... I would have loved a rebello cam, but they just left a bad taste in my mouth.... I tried multiple ways to find the info I wanted and called multiple times and I was ready to order and spend money... He came off like I was wasting his time with only wanting a cam..... Either way I'm not gonna trash talk just telling about my experience....
  20. Here's the key.... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163700286105
  21. There are 2 pulleys on ebay... I think they are the right ones.... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153484155623 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F401816280649
  22. Under dash evaporator unit... Decent unit.... fits the location nice.... But there is nothing to mount to..... So far I started making a mount that will bolt in under the wiper unit.... More of that coming this weekend....
  23. So it looks like the hose kit I bought has enough lengths to the hoses.... Where you run the lines and how will really determine what you need... If you wanna hide the lines more or not... I did have to buy at least 1 more fitting for the #6 line..... by my count I need 6 not 5 like they give you.... at least with the kit I bought.... And the #8 to the compressor would probably need a 90degree adaptor to run down and under the radiator to get to the compressor and some more clearance for the hose in the corner.... I'm actually planning to go across the top and using a bulk head fitting to go through the core support .... so I'll need to pick that up soon..... I'm trying to get the evaporator systems installed on the interior to make sure I dont need any other fittings....
  24. The Suzuki katana motorcycles did that too.... it would blow cool are on the bottom of the carb....
