    Timing

    This is definitely worth checking.... Leo you have pretty much the same coolant setup as me... you should be good, I know your not but the you should be.... If it's not voltage then really the only 2 things left would be a failing water pump and then worse case the head gasket is starting to go....
  2. I suppose there's really no easy way no matter how you do it.... I'm not a body guy or metal finisher, so I wouldnt even attempt this my self... I just like to see, do, and think of things outside the box... Even if it's a foolish idea sometimes it spawns a better idea or makes the person think a little differently about how or what they were going to do...
  3. Wayno for some reason I dont think it's going to be as nice and original looking as yours.... I'd almost like to see the nose stretched over cutting the cab up... Move the whole cab back on the chassis, You could still push the firewall around as needed for leg room and the motor but do the stretch in the cowl area between the hood and the windshield....
  4. I tend to do better when I just commit to it.... I've bought a couple parts that I needed and never see available for purchase and then once I do I see 2 or 3 being sold.... Not much you can do, but for the price I couldn't pass up this opportunity.... I probably should have asked before I bought the insert but is the bottom of the box flat on the inside or does it tilt down some? Just wondering if I'll have to lower my ac or not.... Thinking about it I should be ok, I know greaser did the same ac, I think he still has a glove box installed but I'm not sure... Oh well I'll make it fit If I have to....
  5. I'm just glad there's not much left other than a shell of a cab.... I hate seeing a good datsun get bastardized, but what your up to I dont mind... Goodluck...
  6. Well he actually made a few more so he has more than just the one.... I text him and had him add a glovebox insert to what I ordered to save on the shipping cost.... I know if I waited I would have missed the opportunity, even if I dont get it installed right away I'll have it available.. Also good motivation to clean up the wiring....
  7. Yes I know that's why I'm thinking about it.... I should do it then have him ship me both at the same time.... damn it that almost makes sense to do...
  8. Prices are beyond fair.... I think hes got the glovebox inserts for sale on ebay for $85..... I need one of those but I have to redo my electrical before I bother buying that, although I probably should buy it while they are available...I pulled alot of my wiring In from the engine bay and that kind of takes up that location right now....
  9. I'll definitely post my opinion of it when I get it.... In the thread "my new 521" brother's posted a link to the guys facebook... Hes got a couple rare items hes doing... Glove box insert, some knobs, heater ducts, this boot and various other little items not just for datsun...
  10. From a few comments I read it seems like he know what hes doing.... This was a comment from brothersgarage.... "He has some images of the "final" on the left here, and has videos of smacking with a hammer to show it's durability: - he is using a TPU 'rubber' to print"
  11. I dont think there are too many good ones left out there.... I got one from Charlie with the heater box I bought but it's just not usable, the rubber just gets dry rotted after 50 years and would have just fallen apart if i tried to use it... I keep it in case some one wanted to repop it but someone did with out me having to do anything other than buy it....
  12. Yes it bolts to the front of the heater box and then connects to that fresh air inlet thing coming off the hood....
  13. I was able to order one of these today from the guy on Facebook... From what it sounds like he's doing some preorders of the final product for $65.... He's still tweaking the final product a bit but he had some that he says fit and work fine but have some blemishes, which I dont really see.... I figure my whole truck has blemishes so it will fit in just fine... I just needed functionality, so I opted for a blemished one for $55... I figure this helps him get some money back on ones that he might not be able to sell as easily.....
  14. So you converted to a manual gear box? Is it possible the ecu needs information from the automatic to make it run right? Just a thought...

    my new 521

    I need one of these..... Any idea if there is anyway to contact him without face book?
  18. I was going to suggest that but most dont have easy out tools available... they are a worthwhile investment.... The small ones like to break so use a lot of heat and pay attention or you'll have a broken easy out in your broken bleeder.... I just figure for $15, which I cheaper than buying an easy out set, just use the bleeder and y fitting and throw the wheel cylinder on the shelf....
  19. Your probably going to have to buy a new wheel cylinder to get it...
  20. Ya they are not as cheap as jets.... One reason they dont get changed as often... I think I paid around 15-20 per for mine, luckily only need 2... I just realized your up in Canada, so with the exchange rate I could see that for 4 tubes.. Also watch out for the knockoff stuff...
  21. Was thinking about this comment, Are you running that short filter? There are really low profile air horns ... top left...
  22. I think the 30mm is the choke which is what I comes with and the 45, probably f9 is the original idle jet too.... Depending on what your intended rpm range in I think the 30mm are good ... Bigger chokes are ment for higher rpms.. On my single I'm running 32mm chokes... oh and it's a done up L16 that I daily drive for reference... The biggest key is starting at the idle and getting that right, with the weber each circuit sort of overlaps to the next.. I found the dead spot or transition was corrected by a different emulsion tube, it brought the fuel curve from the mains in sooner... I think I have a chart that's shows them lean to rich.... they are not in order by f number.... Another thing I did that was recommended was to plug the drain back from the pump jet.... Basically the some of the fuel gets sent back to the bowl from the accelerator pump jet.... not sure why.... This helped when you go wot really quick....
  23. Have a look at your plugs too, are they telling you anything? Also the vacuum balancing is a good idea... mine was brand new and it was slightly off between the 2 barrels... You can have 2 carbs and 4 barrels so there is room for error there....
