  1. If I could find a stock replacement for my tank, I’d go that route. Mine may be fixable. We’ll see.
  2. My winter project is either a new fuel tank or an aftermarket one. Haven't decided yet. I think an aftermarket tank with the fill hole underneath the trap door in the bed would be cool.

    Just bought a 521

    We’re at 9” so far, and the second half of the storm is starting to roll back over us. Up here in New England, we get hit by the same storm twice. It rolls out to sea and then circles back.

    It’s official: Datsun season is over.
  5. Yeah, that sleeve can be pressed out. I did it on my roadster but said "fuck it" with the one on the truck. I basically had to make a press tool out of aluminum round stock. The sleeve is very thin.
  6. Probably emissions related. My Roadster (with smog pump) was timed at 0 from the factory, with 32 degrees mechanical. The popular thing to do was de-smog them and recurve the dizzy. Ran so much better after that. 16 degrees at idle and 16 mechanical.
  7. Yeah, once salt flies, they both hibernate.
  8. Also, and you might want to experiment a little bit with this, but these trucks run so much better with more than 10 degrees advance. 12-15 seems to work a hell of a lot better.
  9. Nice! Do you know what they used for a backer over the springs? Factory was coconut hair I believe, and it makes a damn mess.

    Another 521 on BAT

    Could be a leaky heater core or something. Has the original door placards. They look exactly like mine.
  11. I don't think he needs any help sleeping at night. He has parts that we don't.
  12. Dude, you got a lime green ZL1?
