  1. Thanks Hainz! I really appreciate the advice. I will do exactly that. Wanted to thank you for the videos on YouTube as well. When I was setting up the timing I watched those many, many, times!!! You are a Datsun Jedi, and I’m honored you commented on my project!!
  2. Been a while but here is progress since I last posted...
  3. Datzenmike, I plan on doing exactly this to my intake manifold. I am using the Weber carb. Do I plumb in a vacuum line attachment as well as a PCV valve?
  4. Are those kegs full? Lol!
  5. Nice truck! I’m going for stock ride height. That is just like the bumper I took off mine!
  6. It is a “full face dash overlay” made in America bought on eBay. Needed a fair amount of sanding and trimming to sit good. I think having no windshield REALLY helped get it on tight and look half decent. It sure beats the old dash but it’s not perfect. To the untrained eye it looks great.
  7. A little more work done on the engine
  8. Dash rehabilitation...before....
  9. I just bought them on eBay. They came from a guy in Australia but they were definitely made in Taiwan. Like these https://www.ebay.com/itm/FOR-NISSAN-DATSUN-520-521-620-1300-1500-PICKUP-TRUCK-STEEL-REAR-BUMPER/173815674146?hash=item287838b522:g:0WkAAOSwPvVcd7LR
  10. Got the oil pan on
  11. BTW bonneville salt flats is practically in my backyard!

  12. Hi Distributorguy!

    I sent this to Stoffregen Motorsport:

     

    "Hi Stoffregen Motors!  Big Fan of your advice and I had a question,  after reading some of your posts.  I am building a 1979 l20b in a 620.  I have a genuine weber carb to put on it.  I am/have de-smogging everything.  I looked at my stock electronic distributor and it is corroded dirty ugly and the ring under the magnets it is broken.  I resigned myself to buying a new distributor.  Can't find em anywhere!  I called California Datsun and they said they were on national backorder.  So my question is, what should i do about the distributor, and any advice to get the most out of my weber carb upgrade?  Thanks!! "

     

    This was his reply, " 

     wouldn't mess around with a rebuilt or new distributor. I would give a call to one of the Datsun engine guys (Rebello, Ermish, etc) and see if they have anything they can sell you. Or, have Jeff Schlemmer rebuild the one you have. He goes by jschlemmer here on Ratsun and has that blue 620 land speed racing truck.

     

    It would be better to rebuild an OEM unit than it would be to use some Chinese pile of crap.

     

    Good luck."

     

    HELP!!!! LOL!!!
