  1. Awesome, this is turning out great.
  2. So I had dinner with John Morton and his wife last night. Talk about serious fanboy moment.
  3. You bringing that thing to The Mitty at Road Atlanta this weekend? I hear John Morton is going to be there with Nissan again.
  4. Thanks for sharing a pic of the hood bumpers/stoppers, didn't realize they were still available. I'm ordering a set right now. Any other odds and ends still available from Nissan that you might have PN's for?
  5. Cannot believe no one has responded to this yet. That 'thing' on the side of the cylinder head that you call a regulator is a mechanical fuel pump. If you're installing an aftermarket electronic pump and regulator you can remove that pump but you'll need to make a block off plate. Also, if you're removing the carb and intake manifold you might as well go ahead and drain the radiator of coolant at that point. The thermostat housing is not part of the intake manifold assembly BUT if I recall properly, the intake manifold on your '74 is watercooled and will have ports on the cylinder head for coolant. You'll be loosing coolant either way.
  6. wow, this car is now nicer than I ever thought it would be. Good job PPK

    Dude slow down, your English is terrible and you're being very confusing. What exactly are you trying to do, put a forklift J15 in place of a J13?
  8. Took the car out to Atlanta Motorsports Park yesterday for some fun in the sun, about 5 minutes into the first session the car decided to start running like shit, CEL indicated 'Cylinder 1 Misfire'. I wonder why LOL. Wasn't smoking at the time, no knocks or weird noises so I unplugged the cylinder 1 injector and drove it an hour home. Edit: so I guess the pictures decided to not show up. Basically, I murdered a spark plug. I'll have to get the pics to load.
  9. Went to the Delta Flight Museum a few weekends ago, pretty awesome place to go!

  10. The ONLY filters I'll use on any engine is Wix (NAPA), OE Nissan, or K&N (I use them on my Motorcycle.) Can't understand how Fram can be so damn awful.
  11. 40300-N3200 looks to be the correct PN Mike. According to Nissan, that PN superceeded to 40300-N3227. Last retail price was $422 per wheel.
  12. Pretty sure I have a few 3 bolt steering wheels that I can donate fo freeeee before I throw them out LOL
  13. God that wheel fuckery was still the funniest shit to happen to me in a car. I never did figure out why it spit the wheel off twice. ?
  14. These things are a bit clunky by nature, you may give the Red Line friction modifier a try. We use it in house on just about every CLSD to help reduce a bit of the noise, it dramatically reduces low speed chatter. https://www.z1motorsports.com/oils-and-lubricants/red-line-oils/red-line-limited-slip-friction-modifier-break-in-additive-p-8680.html
