  1. Not sure yet. The ka24de is an unknown used engine. I will be tearing into it soon. Still looking at options. On one hand I could throw a header and the new Weber 38/38 on the l20. Overhaul my Weber 32/36 and put it on blue. Or go with the ka24 on red. We shall see. Eventually the 32/36 will be going on blue regardless. Big Red is being patient.
  2. Guess who's back? And big red says, 'lets go boy, I ain't getting any younger.' Next, fitting front disc brakes, ka24, 5spd and drive line.
  3. Interior floor is clean. It was pretty nasty. Seats are in, mostly. Think I'll drive Later
  4. I lied, just had to do some more stretching... I coulbn't sleep. Truly done for today.
  5. Both seats are done and going back in tomorrow. Don't think I mentioned but the drivers seat is full electric. In addition it actually works. Got some floor mats awhile back for the Chevy 2500 and never used em. We'll just see how they fit tomorrow when the seats go back in. 1st up tomorrow is finishing my wife's upgraded planter box. She'll be happy with it. Next is getting the Mazda cleaned up and listed 4 sale. Road trip coming up. Found a guy parting out a 720. Soon making a trip to start picking up the 64 roadster. Blue is gonna be busy. Hey, calling it a day before midnight. LET'S GO BRANDON!!!
  6. Blue gotta have some new seats. Same seats just slapping on some new covers. $29.99 at the china parts store. Did the initial fitting then made a tent over the seat and a radiant heater. Made that cover a lot easier to work with. Wait, I forgot the seat back pocket. Streached out the material into the pocket, split with an razor and secured with spay adhesive. Painted the plastic trim and using my tent baked over night. Co pilot seat ready. Captains seat tonite.
  7. Idle is still a bit high but stumble is gone. Found the #4 exhaust plug wire at plug was not making full contact. Took him out for a quick test drive and success, purring like a kitten. Damn, this is a fun truck to drive. With new shocks, exhaust and s tuned carb it's incredible how he's handling. Get the interior together and we'll be ready to show off. It's a Datsun.
  8. Your absolutely correct. I'll correct that. Maybe install one of those clear glass stained where the filter is currently located. I like being able to see the fuel going through the system. But today was good. Crispy pic, but you can see the old exhaust system placement. It was a mess. The new system going in and hanging high and proud. The difference is night and day. Got home and put big reds brand new shocks on blue. Threw on big reds wheels and tires. Thighted up the heater control panel mounts which was rattling like hell. So, the wife had driven it a few times early on and was not impressed. I told her it was ready for a test drive and off she went. I would have gone with her but the passenger seat is out. Upon her return she was stunned at the transformation. I try and get her to post the video she played for me. 20 days in and he's a goer. This evening I intend to do some fine tuning on that new carb. Currently have an intermittent stumdle at idle and can't seem to get the idle below 850. So long for now.
  9. Took the old boy out for, ya know, daily driver stuff. She drives incredible. I mean, if your into aggressive driving this truck rocks. The god forsaken exhaust system is a real bummer. It's rubbing and rattling everywhere. The front end needs some work. I did lube it up, lt helped but theres some loose crap under there. Throwing some China auto parts seat covers on, tighten some raffles and we be cruising. Left em outside in the rain last night for a leak check. I got em. Turned the fan on and water blowing/leaking out of the blower shroud. Throwing on new shocks that I had on big red. Well, and a few other thing's But, I'm very happy with this truck. But 1st, we button up some loose ends. Besides the above.... Valve adjustment, yeah my intake needs to be ripped out again. Such is life.
  10. Got blues engine dialed in and finished the engine bay. A little rework on the intake. New overflow resivoir. Cleaned up some placement and wiring issues. And cleaned him up. And blue is running great. Not happy with the valve noise and will adjust again. The exhaust system is crap. Trying to set something up for tomorrow morning at the muffler shop. Interior next. Later guys, I'm going for a drive.
  11. Tranny is buttoned uped and serviced. Looking at the dredges of the atf. It was time for a change. Prior to I threw in some sea foam trans tune and ran it for awile. Got the front end greased. Purged out a lot of old nasty grease. Man, what a mess. Sorry no pics but I had grease every where. Got the valence, grill and bumper back on. They were for sure missing some hardware. Jeez Looked every thing over and it was time to start er up. It's so nice to have the new carb installed. It starts like a new ride. No leaks and everything is working. Took blue out for an evening drive and damn if he ain't performing. It's such a joy to drive and shifting bueatifly. Next is getting the engine bay squared away. Including the fresh air intake. Decided not to use the stock box. To much cutting and angles to mess with. Using the above and it's gonna look cool. Tomorrow's a new day.
  12. Isn't it more like a bluemp... Got quite a bit of stuff done. -The electric fuel pump was quite annoying. It was mounted on the belly of the cabin under the copilot. Load and whiny even. At least somebody installed inserts to bolt the pump down. Look just past the end of the loose hose. Got a new pump rated for 2.0 to 3.2 psi. Red line says set for 2 psi. Think I'll be good. Installed, trimmed hoses to fit, attached to hard pipe previously cut, rewired pump, checked for rubbing of parts. The only filter in the fuel system was the little thing attached on the inlet of the pump. Installed a new filter under the intake manifold into existing rubber rubber fuel line, cut and trimmed hoses to fit filter and leak check is good. This is where the fuel and vent line come together just before changing to hard pipe and up thru the intake manifold for carb supply. Double checked all was hooked up and started the boy up. The electric choke works. The book calls out 3 plus or minus 2 degrees on the timming and my last drive it was set at 5. Plenty of pet but a lil stutter on start off. Noticed a bit of gurgling of deceleration as well. Took the timing back to dead on 3 degrees. No stutter or gurgle. Still plenty of pep. 😁 My idle is kinda goofy and wandering a bit. Suspect my throttle cable is to tight. Will adjust and check on next drive. In process now, trans fluid change.
  13. The 38 is on! Haven't dolled it up yet but took it for a ride. The difference is pretty amazing. Took it up my test hill and he killed it! Took a look at the header again. oh yeah, it's resting on the mount. Minor adjustment tool. Just a small dent. Sorry Mike...... It was one of my obnoxious noises. It's been a long day.
  14. All right you talked me into it. The head is not coming off. Got both surfaces cleaned and the intake is going back on. Blue is going back together. I just gonna put a divot in that header pipe so it ain't rubbing.
