  1. They made a 700 ish cu in V12 that was 2 V6s together. The exhaust side of the heads do look like Olds or Pontiac and the rockers, pure GM

    You need about 2 volts more than the battery from the alternator. Consider it a 2 volt 'push' putting current into it. You used to be able to buy the brushes for the old style. I've pulled them out of bad alternators to keep a good one going. No one does that today, they buy a $45 POS from Oryliegh's.
  3. Won't pass visual emissions. Actually easier to keep it in working order than remove it Good chance of causing problems removing it. Will run the same with poorer mileage. Gas smell in the cab. Oil needs changing more often and engine dirtier inside.
  4. Wow those heels are way out of style...

    It should, the mounting bolts are vertical. The zx master will move more volume than the smaller 610 master which has to travel farther to do so and may feel mushy. I have a 15/16" on my 710 brake booster with Maxima calipers and love the feel. The S13/14 calipers use a 15/16" master (horizontal mounting bolts) with anti lock brakes and 7/8" without. The calipers are larger than the stock 610 calipers so this should work well.
  6. L and Z series engines are interference engines so if valves are mistakenly at full lift or the chain breaks while running, pistons will hit at TDC.
  7. That's someones daughter, but not mine, so I guess it's ok.
  8. Feb '76 about half way into the '76 model year. 32,909 KCs were made through July '76.
  9. Consumables like brake shoes and pads and ball joints for suspension and steering can be ordered at NAPA, Bumper to Bumper any auto parts store. I bough some Centric rear shoes for my 710 from Amazon for $9 on sale. Body parts are much harder. Bumpers? no market so not likely to find any in a store. Try wrecking yards, e=bay or post an ad in out classifieds... ...https://ratsun.net/classifieds/category/9-datsun-parts/ For struts you can swap 280zx struts onto the A10. You may need 14" rims to clear the much larger vented rotor and massive caliper. It's a hell of a brake upgrade.
  10. Was it or could it be driven on the street? Not sure today if racing may be a safer way to spend the last 20 years.
  11. No. The large front two bearings do support the fronts of the main and counter shafts, and there are smaller bearings at the back that do the same. In the middle are the adapter plate bearings and they don't look good at all.
  12. Matt if you ever get up this way DO this road past Duffy Lake. Starts about 4 min in. I always try to include Hwy. 99 on my vacation. The pavement is as perfect as the scenery. It's just one of those roads the general public doesn't know about because there are faster and easier ways to get there.
  13. '73 through '77 all bolt to the bed. The '73-'74 probably didn't have a return line that the L20B needs. The '75 through '77 are the closest match iteration. '78 and '79s bolt to the frame but a smart person could probably make it work on the bed.
  14. I was stopped at a DUI checkpoint one night and asked what I was going. I replied that I was minding my own business. Where are you headed? I pointed to the windshield. For some reason the courts here allow the police to do this as long as they stop EVERYBODY. It's an illegal stop and a fishing expedition under the guise of stopping impaired drivers. I told them why not set up near the bar down the road to increase their chances. It's bullshit. BTW I don't drink and I don't like impaired drivers either, they're only slightly above child molesters, but I don't like being stopped worse.
