    1971 Datsun 521

    I just got my front windshield seal. I order it from eBay off a seller in Bangkok. I order it on Monday and it got here today Friday. They seal came carefully looped (not bent) like some stuff you other online. I’m now debating if I should go ahead and do it the install my self or just take it to a shop. I payed $86 I’m hoping it last a long time since I don’t have a garage and the sun will be punishing me for that.

    I’m happy to say I fixed my problem. New maf came in installed it got the iacv solenoid wire solder up and ran wires to hook up an obd2 2 plug. The truck runs perfect now pulls hard and no more pooping from the exhaust. Thanks again to everyone who helped me out and gave me advice on the build. Next step turbo haha later down the road not at the moment.

    So today I was cleaning up my wiring better and found out two needed wires are cut. One goes to the tps and the other one goes to the plug that connects to the intake manifold plug. I’m gonna be soldering them up tomorrow and then wrapping up the harness. I’ll consider a new harness if this fix doesn’t actually fix anything and I’ll also talk to ice if it doesn’t help fixing this two wires. disregard one of those two wires if for full open throttle only for auto trans not manual. The other is actually for the iacv solenoid blue/white

    Well I messed up my maf now waiting on a new to arrive on Wednesday. what’s weird is that when I unplug the maf off the the engine died I plugged it back on did the same thing and it died again. What could be the reason for that. normally cars stay on and run like crap or better but don’t die

    @banzai510(hainz) I can give my my details as to what I did but I’m not that experience as icehouse. ps update on truck I started it up with the new injectors and it ran smooth took it form a drive and it it was still doing the pooping on acceleration. Pulled up in the drive way clean the rotor and car as they are dirty( will get new one) and added a ground strap from the block to the fore wall. I turn the truck on to head to work and it runs stronger has not done the popping anymore and it pulls harder than is has prior to installing the ground strap. I’ll will be adding at least two more one from the right side of the clock to chassis and one more from alternator to battery

    I don’t like wasting time and believe it or not I did wastes some time on things that could of just taken minutes. Problem of trying to get things done fast without double checking. Also I had to show @banzai510(hainz)i was not gonna give up on my truck. No disrespect banzai your always a great help. I know what most of you here mean by people giving up and stuff cuz most of the time I find post forgotten with things unresolved.

    I saw a video and how to check if it’s good. I did that but it shows it’s grounded out multimeter says O.L so I’m replacing it. It’s located on the engine harness by the injectors
