    Heating up

    That helped on my 521, but the original radiator was kind of done.... plus when I rebuilt my motor I was amazed at the extra rust chips loose inside the block.... Definitely check your timing I have heard that before too... Another thing is what's your fan setup? I have seen it where you have the fan on the water pump with no shroud and the fan just cant doing its job correctly....

    Have you ever flushed the radiator or block.... Look down the radiator cap.... how does that look? Is the radiator full of shit? If you flush it disconnect the hoses and flush in the reverse of the actual coolant flow..... That's where I would start.....

    Same here....
  5. Soak in pb or wd40 and get some heat on it.....
  6. Looks like it's as simple as ordering from autozone.... as long as I entered the right info....

    I'm using a gates XL7350.... I had the same altenator as mainer311, I went to the internally regulated one and it was physically the same same size.... You need to get the belt on first then bolt up the alternator....

    You'll just need a shorter belt to keep it closer to the block....

    Yup I'm backwards.. looked at the wrong pic.. Just went out to my truck and had a look... it would have S and L on the back if it was internally regulated... F and N for the external....

    That looks like an internally regulated one.... no idea on amps.... Can they test it at a parts store for amps or do they just give a voltage reading?

    That was my original upgrade before I got rid of the regulator.... the one from the 200 sx is the same size and 60 amps as well as internally regulated.

    They might be 50 and still externally regulated.....
  13. I could physically move the joint side to side inside the cups..... not much but enough..... Vibrating was felt over 45 mph, sometimes there was even a sweet spot and it would go away temporarily..... but kind of felt like driving over a road waiting to be repaved..... Well they repaved the highway I drive on and I was still feeling it.....
  14. Haven't made it on the highway yet but I was able to get up to 50 on a stretch of road in town and already a noticeable difference with the new u joint....
  15. Charlie are they even the correct pistons for the block? They look like they have four reliefs for only 2 valves.....
  16. Could have been quality of part.... I'll admit at the time I believe I used parts from autozone..... Even then they only used 2 out of the 3 that I gave them because they said one had play in it.... I kind of think It was the clips, that's the direction it was loose..... Either way new one feels 100 times better...
  17. Sort of..... i checked it when I had the rear axle on 2 jack stands, front never left the ground. I just assumed that would be the same since it was still supporting itself by the axle..... it's hard to get under there when its actually on the ground....
  18. Did pretty good this morning..... Did my first u joint today.. not as bad as I thought it was going to be..... Didnt really take any other pics because it was just a u joint..... ok and it doesnt look like postimage is working so I guess it doesnt matter.... I had the u joints done when I replaced the carrier bearing and the drive shaft balanced..... The one thing i noticed was the clips in the old u joint where .02 thinner.... the new one with the thicker clips seemed to make things much tighter, but not too tight... Checked pinion angle while I was under there just to be sure and that was good... so hopefully this ujoint was my vibration issue..... Edit for pic: Part that needed new joint....
  19. Damn, ya I'd try calling around and try another place like Mike said .....
  20. How bad is your radiator...... Another option might be bringing it to a radiator shop and have it recored....
  21. Well that's interesting... I was gonna say to make sure the parts you want match what you have because the kind of get lumped together when something's might be more year specific ... but this is a whole different issue.....
  22. Thanks I will keep that in mind but I have had a set of door seals this whole time..... quality unknown... It's not that I need to purchase them I just need to get off my ass and install them.... I was driving the truck for 3 months last year without the door glass.. once I could drive it again some things became less of a priority while others got things became more.... As far as the seals I've been afraid I will start a snowball effect and have realigned the doors and fenders because of adding the seals...
  23. Have you tried the obvious and replaced the pcv valve?
  24. Best day ever driving the datsun. A/C is working perfectly... the downtown clock was registering 92 today with only about 40% humidity so not to bad... I was happy it was cool inside and there was no increase to the engine temperatures due to the condenser in front of the radiator.... I feel i could have gotten it colder inside but I dont have door seals or door cards to keep the cool air contained..... Another couple items for this winters todo list....
  25. I was lucky I turned the idle up just barely with ac on..... once the truck warms up it works out good.... Not to high and not to low..... Gives me some time to do research... right now the ujoint is top priority the rest of the things I need to do are just little issues that wont hurt anything....
