  1. Remember those gas pumps, had to lay over that small lever, and then ratchet the big one?

    I guess you meant "shouldn't" You're correct, it shouldn't, I wish it didn't. Have many things keeping me from moving faster. Also money is scarce, and I can't put dirty, worn out parts back on, I am either restoring or replacing what I can. Fuel tank was rusty...took way too long to try to fix that this summer, for a less than perfect outcome, but it's done.

    I am replacing heater hoses and noticed the firewall grommets were cracked and ugly... ....so off I go searching for them... Lol, they are trying to get from $23 to $49 for them! C'mon, now..... I found these from Vintage air for $1.99 ea. Yes, please got mine from Summit in 2 days...$8 shipping. Be careful, they cause cancer if you live in California. Almost exact part I will take a pic with the 5/8 Gates hose installed to show the sweet fitment.

    Cab mount bushing help

    Always give it a shot, it's amazing what's out there. I got NOS main bearings from Kuwait. And yes they were genuine. About $50 shipped. Took a camel's age to arrive, but I got 'em.

  7. I wonder how it ever ended up on there...weird
  8. The nose is so small it doesn't even fit the opening anyway, so unless it's just the outer radius jamming it.... it doesn't even fill the hole in the plate, some of it remains exposed with starter inserted. It's a really tight fit anyway, and I don't like it hitting the dipstick. Does it look like a Maxima starter? I have to remember how to make the imgur pics show up without clicking.
  9. I fought this bitch for awhile before realizing it is not correct for my L16 73 620. Been apart for 5 years...now rebuilding. Looked at pics online and this one’s nose is too small, solenoid is in wrong place (hits dipstick) barely fits in but I never got the top bolt in. It HAD to have been on there...can’t believe I didn’t notice how wrong it was during tear down. i’m Gonna order a new one I guess. https://imgur.com/a/6IXnM

    Thanks, Hainz, I have spent alot of time cleaning items that most sane people would leave alone. The mains were NOS OEM, tho...$27 for the set. ...and that shot of the oiler is the after pic, it was ground half thru before the brazing Still haven't started it, got a nice Koyo Japanese clutch release brg. from Advance Auto...packaged with laser dual-image hologram on the box, quality and pride, awesome. Put the tranny in, cleaning and restoring the driveshafts tonite. Yea Mike, it's the original L16, number matches the plate on truck. So I decided to rebuild it instead of an L20. Don't know what happened with the head tho.

    Yep I was gonna do that for sure, but I saw DatsunMike (I think) say to actually pack some into the bearing thru the little opening like packing a wheel brg. I guess I'll see if it'll take any. Damnit my Civic clutch shit the bed today in stop ang go busy traffic. Fucked now. Don't know what's wrong...can't shift when engine running..I can feel the PP springy when I press and see throwout fork moving. Guess I'll drop the f'n tranny cuz something must be up with the pp. It's a Comp. Stage 4. Fidanza flywheel. It drives once under way and can rev match to shift, drove it home this way, blowing 2 red lights and several very stale yellows. Oh well, this ain't the Honda forum...just sucks to have another car on the injured list.
