  1. Ended up getting an internal regulated rebuilt 35 amp and will eventually get a higher amperage alternator! Also I got an 80 psi fuel filter (per Datzenmike's advice). Last question is that EGR clean reminder module, can that simply be removed and unplugged? Of course EGR stuff isn't hooked up anyways sense I can 44PHH's so I figure it can be I just don't want the EGR light to be on. Thanks!
  2. Yes there is an electronic pump, 8PSI and o have Mikunis so I have it dialed down to about 2-3psi. Would you say 8PSI is way too much for that fuel filter? I never thought of that thanks for the heads up.
  3. Ah yes there is; there is another one like it in another spot that's also unused. So I'm assuming I'm not missing anything and this truck was converted to internal regulated possibly, and I bought a externally regulated alternator and maybe that's why I'm not getting a charge?
  4. So the voltage regulator that large black unit? I just didn't see any online that looked like that.
  5. I figure so, there's a round connector near the battery that's been cut and gotten rid of but I'm not sure what was there. Those two relays or whatever they may be were under a black plastic cover which.
  6. I turned the old one in as a core sadly but as I said the inside and outside where black from burning around the charge terminal. Anyways I'm starting to wonder if my truck was converted to internally regulated. Where would the regulator be?
  7. Pics are pretty easy! Sounds like a rad truck ? I have a 77 620 pickup with a Z24 block and L16 head, brown racing cam, twin mikunis and a 5spd
  8. Hey everyone so I'm having a strange issue and I just want to make sure I test everything before throwing more money into my 1977 Datsun 620 Pickup. So the alternator went out in it (luckily I made it home) and you could clearly see where the charge wire burnt along with the nut/ inside of alternator. Replaced alternator with Carquest 14105A and everything went on easy but it isn't charging. Continuity is good between positive terminal and alternator B terminal and battery isn't being charged; BUT if I take off the charge cable from the B terminal it's getting 14V, put it back on it's back down to 12.2 while running (new battery as well). Would you all think voltage regulator as culprit? Also the charge light is on inside the truck as well.
  9. It's been a blast! This engine that was in it just leaked like crazy and the block was cracked and had been welded. All kinds of madness, but I have paperwork saying there was an engine swap some years ago. My roadster seems to be a later 67 so I think it would have came with an aluminum head?
  10. Just thought I'd post some project pics of the swap my buddy and I are doing on my 67 roadster. I paid $3000 for it and it's a late 67 (not half) that had an older engine swapped into it about 20 years ago, has a cast iron head???A buddy had an extra R16 in beautiful original shape with a later number and aluminum head laying around and gave it to me! Along with some clean stock side drafts and headers.

    Looking for a good L28 or L28ET block or whole engine. I have a 1978 280z that has bad piston rings. Looking for a decent shape engine.

  12. Well it was a machinist and I that worked on it and I polished the valves and put the new seals on. I did feel as though the new seals we're kind of "sketchy" as in some of thoughs little C clips just didn't feel as tight as they should. That would be a good place to start too.
  13. I need to do a leak down. I believe I was around 140psi except one cylinder was like 115psi
  14. I'll be sure to check that out, I adjusted the valves not too long ago but maybe it's that. And I only seem to ever see l24's and on eBay people want $1,000+ for a 100,000+ mile engine!?
  15. Just recently had my head rebuilt on my 1978 280z. Only down side is I'm at low compression across all cylinders and even lower on one than the others ?. Does anyone have experience with an at home piston rings replacement? Would it be more worth it to just find a good used block/ whole engine? And is there anyone wanting to sell a l28 or l28e?
