    the bit i couldn't get to seal was this bit where it joins to the exhaust and utilises that awful clamp I bought some of this grey gasket stuff and got very dirty using it. It seems to have worked for now

    Happy with how it sits at the rear now I tried to no end to get longer studs so i could run 10mm slip on spacers for the front Ended up with 15mm bolt ons that i will have to modify the nuts for - can't get shallow enough 7/16 nuts it would seem

    Update: binned the old carbs. bought new carbs. These are the A12T flat top SU's that were on the A12GX engine Cleaned up and mounted Removed the Idle Mixture System stuff and made plates to blank it off fitted Runs pretty well with these on. It was running very lean and hot to begin with but i think i have sorted that out now. I ran the fuel rail a bit better and that leveled up the fuel bowls. I "balanced" them using a piece of hose with fluid in it - so not terribly accurate but close enough. Winding out the fuel adjuster to give them more fuel and then lifting the pin, listening for high idle then a drop back to idle works well for the rear carb, front carb does this but then starts to stall instead of returning to idle. But overall it runs fairly well. I do have an exhaust leak though in from the join between the manifold and exhaust - i just can't get it to seal up properly <embed width="440" height="420" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://v9.tinypic.com/player.swf?file=1r3m12&s=9"><br><font size="1"><a href="http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=1r3m12&s=9">Original Video</a> - More videos at <a href="http://tinypic.com">TinyPic</a></font> View My Video

    Datsun 520 - Shifting Gears w/ Aaron Kaufman

    Not sure if this has been posted before or not (i had a quick flick back through this forum and a quick search - didn't see anything) From 25 minutes in there's a 520 truck heading around a race track. There's not much info on the car itself but it's there

    Update Got them running pretty well and idling okay. Had to learn how to set the dwell and the timing again etc. here's a vid of them running View My Video The problem i'm having now is i think they're far too large for the poor thing I have the fuel jet/mix screws on both carbs wound all the way up (towards the carb) to limit the amount of fuel to the absolute minimum which still seems to be too much Engine blows a fair bit of white smoke and smells fairly fuel heavy And the plugs come out looking like this - these are new plugs and have probably done 20 minutes work It runs (seemingly) fine while it's running but won't start when it's cold if the plugs are like this. If i clean them up it starts almost straight away. it does stutter sometimes after changing gears though I will need to look at "re-jetting" them (i have no idea where to get replacement parts for these knock off SU's) or maybe sourcing some smaller SU's alltogether either that or they just need a tune by someone who knows what they're doing

    not finished properly yet (no gaskets/spring return throttle needs to be sorted etc) but they run! View My Video took it for a quick squirt around the block. feels punchier

    I agree it's all about the look and also the sound - I already know this motor is going to make no power but making it look cool while it makes no power is paramount. maybe later down the track i'll look in to getting someone to make custom headers If those MG headers had fit i was going to get some of that exhaust heat wrap off of ebay and wrap them not many j13 bits floating around down here so i'm sticking with the E1 manifold for now I've made a plate to cover the hole that's normally covered by the standard manifold

    looking at these MG ZA and ZB header pics it's likely that they would fit - the only issue i can see is the length towards the firewall but could surely be trimmed they seem to be custom order though and over $700 aud on ebay - so you'd be better starting from scratch i'm sure http://ducatipartsblowout.com/auto/headers.htm

    MGB headers will not fit without significant modification - might as well start from scratch They fowl on the chassis/cross member which causes them to sit too far back and will not line up with the exhaust ports because of this

    Here's the clearance between the LCA and the chasssis after reindexing the torsion bars - i've put a tiny bump stop in since taking this pic but it's not ideal. looks good but

    :) started on this lol - this was just a test fit but i decided to see if it would fire up. it ended up running a lot better than this but i didn't get a vid of that View My Video i will need to sort out the throttle and they'll definitely need a birthday + rejetting to suit

    Electronic Ignition Upgrade for your Datsun 320 Truck

    could also be the leads breaking down under load. i had a similar issue in an old Subaru of mine, new leads solved it

    wayno - they were the Z'd type modified by mike. 521 is the same as 510 but different from 520 and 320? new shoes :) has too much rake and i need to sort out bump stops for the front and spacers for the rear but it works. also while i was reindexing i found a bunch or bushes i should change over.

    oh no they definitely wouldn't be legal - we do have some very strict modification rules but sometimes you have to run the gauntlet i think the bump stops on mine are already quite small - maybe only like an inch? i saw a set of lca's for sale in aus probably six months ago but by the time pay day rolled around the bloke had already sold them
