    removing cylinder head from an L16 motor..

    haha im starting to like ratsun haha thanks guys aprecciate the help ps i love my datsun even thoe ive had the thing sitting around =0 you know what bro thanks for the help btw,,, when i bought the car i took it to a shop so they could get it running for me and they did a tune up and changed the gaskets but now im really thinking that maybe since i fisrt started driving it for a wile i let the water level go down =( and maybe it over heated and thats what caused it to blow?? =/ maybe? but after it started to smoke i was constantly filling the radiator with water because i had to drive it home and it ran perfectly good strong actually.. so im really hoping there wasnt no serious damage i cant wait to get her up and running again! and another thing even when they did an oil change when i would check the oil it looked a bit odd to me like it was contaminated almost as if it was watery like dark grey.. i did notice that when the car was running if it helps i dont have stock carbs i have cu's you know wat at first when u told me about the intake sytem possibly being loose.. that causes it to mix wit hthe oil?? im starting to take thatinto consideration because when the car was up and running the oil always looked a bit odd to me... i am running cu carbs from a 240z i beleive? i want webbers =) thanks for the link bro btw are thoes re finished original enkei datsun wheels? cuz they look like mines =) u seen my car ? wat u think? haha

    removing cylinder head from an L16 motor..

    yeah its an L16 maybe bored to match l18 and i was told it has closed chamber head and flap tops,not shure still havent proven it my self i havent removed the head... but when i purshased the car it had a new gasket then after driving it around for a wile is when the car started showing symptoms of a blown headgasket like white smoke over heating constantly checking water level... maybe i was to rough =0 it was the longest ive driven my dream car

    removing cylinder head from an L16 motor..

    i still dont know what caused the headgasket to blow i doubt its failure of the cooling system im just thinking its the power of the motor and how it was driven but yeah water mixed in with the oil i poped off the valve cocver and it looked like gravey hahah and some red watermarks but after i replace the gasket i am going to check the water pump the thermostat and start running coolant instead of water =) and install a resivoir becuase it doesnt have one for the radiator
  10. i tried finding a manual for my 71 but i think it is almost impossible to find it any car parts store i havent tried online so i got the intake system and the headers off by the way now i just need to unbolt the head but i need to know the proper sequence on how to remove the bolts does anyone have info on what thoes specs are. do i have to remove alternator? do i have to remove the waterpump? anyparticular way i have to remove the camchaft cam gear timingbelt?

    thank you very much for your advice.. and i think i will go with a nismo gasket cant afford to blow it again.. so what do you think about banzai510's advice below us? about tthe detonation issues? do u think this motor isnt good to drive?
