  1. Your remote starter button removes the ignition switch from the circuit. If still acting up then it;s the starter solenoid. Battery is charged? Battery posts and cables are clean and tight? Battery ground cable tightly bolted to the head? Battery positive cable secure to the starter? Starter tightly bolted to the transmission? If any of the above are iffy, full battery power will not be available to the starter to turn the engine.
  2. I don't think the Daily Mail is controversial. It's like Destruction and Co-vid.... entertainment. I see it for what is really is. (and wiki too)
  3. Perhaps a cheap cork type and just needs a slight tightening. They tend to compress and need to be snugged. Never use sealer on a gasket. Sealing is what the gasket is designed to do. Eventually you will want to take the valve cover off and if it's glued on it will... a/ probably tear the gasket that can be re-used. b/ is a pain in the ass to clean head and valve cover to put a new one on. If cork lightly wet the gasket surfaces with engine oil and install. That's a lot of oil under the car. Maybe the oil pan gasket is also leaking or maybe the engine rear seal. I suppose some of that oil may get on the clutch disc and cause it to slip. Clean the engine and see where the wetness is.
  4. Thick? Latina women are thick through the ass. Change my mind.
  5. ... and the piece will get diseased too. If willing to donate and receive what little that will help you, why not the vab???? Fine, finish off what's left of your life but go to the grave knowing you made a choice and stuck with it. Where in the bible does it say you can't have vaccine but you can have someone else's piece of liver. Which is the more stupid? forced to take the jab to save your life (maybe) or refusing it. Tabloid From Wiki...

  6. I think I threw this in the back when I got rid of my '78.
  7. End stage liver disease but getting a kidney????? wtf??? End stage means one foot in coffin and the other on a banana peel. Just staving off the inevitable.. Go to fucking Mexico for the procedure, but count your kidneys before you leave.
  8. Had a 5 year old '69 back in the day.
  9. The KA24E or KA24DE both bolt up to the stock 720 Z series transmissions... yes. But that's all... You still have to deal with the oil pan fitment but the custom engine mounts are sold by Steve ... https://ratsun.net/profile/38-2edeye/ ...
  10. The H-233 is way to wide for the 620 and needs to be shortened. With only 4.375 and 4.625 gear choices with LSD, the Hardbody VG 2wd came with better gears, 3.70 or 3.889 you can swap in.
  11. Crazy ideas do sometimes come up with things.
  12. Unplug under the seat to isolate the exterior harness. If it keeps blowing then has to be elsewhere. If it's fine then it's from there back. Trailer hitch splices added by POs are the biggest causes of later problems.
  13. Matt, welcome to Ratsun. The 521 is well liked and represented here. I had a 5 or 6 year old '71 back in the day for about 8 years. This is classic valve cover gasket leaking. Rather than just tighten, and have that not work, I would replace it and snug the bolts down wrist tight to start. Now take to the car wash, the ones with the wands like a power wash and clean everything. Perhaps get a bottle of that citrus de-greaser and spray down everything first. Don't spray directly at the distributor. Later when everything has dried, watch for emerging oil. If at the valve cover carefully snug the closest bolts. A blown head gasket never presents with oil leaking.... It can blow clouds of steam out the exhaust in combination with constant coolant loss. The steam can by pass the rings and mix with the oil turning it a milky coffee brown. It may always over heat One or more spark plugs may be suspiciously cleaner than the others. Get some rain gear on and power wash all that black crap off. It may take multiple trips to the car wash to get it all but take your time. Once cleaned it will stay clean if it was only the valve cover gasket. If you find any more leaks we''ll deal with this later. This is fine!!! Needs a proper 50/50 mix of coolant/anti freeze though, to reduce corrosion. Never use or top with tap water... buy a gallon of distilled water.
  14. Anyone in control is well insulated from the down side of their legislation. (The affluent don't give a shit, I wouldn't either) Waste of time thanking a past legislator, better to thank those idiots that voted for it and never learned from it.
  15. Over tightening leads to cracks, tightening more leads to a larger crack. Yes to the above some kind of thread locker to reduce loosening from vibration. Vibration at idle can also be from... A cylinder with low compression. Check your valve lash. Check both intake and exhaust plugs have spark then... Check set ignition timing
  16. The wiring and bulbs are the same for turn or 4 ways just the switches are different. This is a perfect example of what is wrong with the after market industry. This shit is far inferior to the stock alternator. One from a wrecking yard with 150k on it is better. What good is a lifetime warranty when it fails and leaves you stranded?????
  17. The stock set up is proven to work and generally bullet proof and easy to work on. Why mess it up with home made engineering?
  18. Top front seal leaks where the primary drive shaft attaches is common as the (as I was told) oil is less likely to splash and lubricate it, and it dries out. All three seals need the companion flange unbolted and 'drawn off' to get at the seal. I've had good luck tapping on the back side of the flange with a large socket. Takes a lot of tapping but the flange slides off the spline. The seal can be pried out with a screwdriver and a new one tapped into place. I had to do all three of mine because I had switched to synthetic oil and that shit leaks past anything. Grease the seal lips so it doesn't run dry on start up.
  19. Well they say that imitation, is the sincerest form flattery.... Nissan also 'copied' the Mercedes valve train too. The Mercedes master link for joining timing chain ends fits the Nissan timing chain and I think the rocker arm on cam features are the same also.
  20. For the greater good comes down more to the individual choosing to do so. An ethical decision made by people not a governing agency that is incapable of ethical decisions. For example a government that allows smoking and collects tax revenue from it even though it kills the smoker after a shortened life time of tax paying for an addiction. An ethical person, for the greater good of everyone, will stop smoking thus improving his life and depriving the tobacco industry of income. The greater good can't be easily or impartially legislated, it's again, up to the individual to choose.
  21. People should think for themselves. Pretty damn hard to go along when every fiber in your being screams that it's wrong. Who decides the path that is for the good of everyone? Who is the impartial trusted arbiter? Well time is for one. Hindsight. Wouldn't be the first time the majority of the herd chose the wrong path and thundered over the cliff. Time and again history has been changed for good or bad by a single person who challenged the norm.
  22. 2 are 71B 4 speeds. Can't see the other one well enough. One head at least, is a '78-'80 W58 from L20B another probably an A87
  23. Unless you can change your mind later, (you may not have that option) you pretty much have to accept your choice in the face of unforeseen consequences or failure to think a decision out. True for anyone but even more poignant for those who oppose accepting the vax as opposed to those who got it. My choice places me outside government coercion but I still don't like seeing it applied to others with such a heavy hand. Some things are for our own good and the good of others.
  24. Cabin light bulb blown or door contacts to ground rusty and not grounding. The 15 amp fuse is in line just inside the cabin behind the glove box where the main harness enters from the engine compartment. Disconnected the rear 10 pin harness plug under the passenger seat just before it exits the floor.????
