  1. What a great way to move heavy parts around.
  2. Original straps had an asbestos (?) padding. What are you using?
  3. Have you checked to see if the roadster ones will work? https://www.datsunparts.com/1992
  4. Trying to recall how this gauge ended up in my parts pile, but don't see how it could be from an RHD vehicle.
  5. Yeah, someone else thought it was a 720 clock, but when I Googled, all the images had the 12, 3, 6 and 9, which mine does not.
  6. Can anyone identify this mystery gauge? Thanks.
  7. Perfect timing! I like Photobucket, but not enough to pay for it. Imgur.....well.....PITA, but if you want free. Thanks all who made this happen. Oh, I agree you should limit file sizes, but you should also limit pixel sizes to avoid images that take up the whole screen.
  8. No grass growing under your feet! 😁 What thickness metal did you use? MIG? If yes, what are you using?
  9. <expletive deleted> NO! Black engine bays suck!
  10. Is there a decent old school auto electric shop that could rebuild it?
  11. So, identical other than solenoid location? Hmmm.... Swap innards. Sounds like a plan! Have you compared part numbers for the guts? Can you post pictures of the two starters side-by-side?
  12. Can't believe Nissan used a different starter on the R16 in a 411 vs a 311 (aka roadster). That said, many roadster owners switch to a forklift, starter, which is shorter. More info: http://www.311s.org/pmwiki-311/pmwiki.php?n=TechSection.ForkliftStarter
  13. Okay, I can see the pics in the email notification you get from Ratsun when you're following a thread, but not in the thread itself.......weird.
  14. CA Hockett (admin of YahooGroups EarlyDatsunClub) has repro gaskets (aka weatherstrip in the parts catalog) for the front windshield and rear tail gate glass. PM me for his email address. And, yes, I realize this thread is from Aug 2019.
  15. I saw them yesterday on one computer, but not today on computers or phone. Looking at the source html, images are links to googlegroups, which I'm guessing means images are hosted on Google Photos. Let me test that assumption.....fail. Guess Datsun Dude needs to fix it. Maybe he can also explain where/how his pics are stored.
  16. Hmmmm.....now I can't see them either.
  17. Now that is slicker than....well....you know. 🤣
  18. Sorry to hear/read this, but completely understand. At least I can say I got the first production 411 disc brake kit, right? 😋 If I read correctly, you're retiring, which is a whole new adventure. I retired a year ago, and still figuring it out. Thought all the car projects would get some serious love, but I thought wrong. Having to get a total left hip joint replacement didn't help either although I'm waaaaaaaaay better now. Finally back to work on the roadster again. Cheers.
  19. Only 2 in 2 years? Well, that sucks big time.
  20. How did you brace the shaft to take hitting the pin? That's what has me stymied.
  21. Well, since Canby is no more, you're safe. 🤓
  22. mklotz70 = Mister Klotz in my OP. 😎
