    It was a junk engine from the get-go and a bad buy. After that trackday last year I only really drove it a couple other times. It generally ran crappy and was smoking a ton. Hopefully I can tear it down and salvage some of the hotrod aftermarket parts for a real build down the line. For now I'm going to throw in a fresh from japan longblock and try not to detonate it. ;)

    Soon! SR20DET #3 due to arrive at the end of the month! This time I'm going to take my time and hopefully get to enjoy my 510 again next season.

    I had a great time even though my car was not cooperating. Thanks for hosting another awesome bbq Busta! It was great to catch up with the crew and meet a few new faces. :thumbup:

    Without resolving my AFR issues I went to a trackday at Thunderhill. It was cool. My buddy offered to come with me and was nice enough to bring us up on his trailer. I cut the day short after the second session. In addition to running very rich and using almost a full tank of fuel in 2 sessions I was blowing oil again. It was coming from somewhere on the driver side, maybe the BOV or another bad coupler. Rather than ignore it and clean up after every session we packed up and hit the road home. I haven't touched it since, that was 12/11. I never really got up to pace on track but those 2 sessions were super fun and I hope to fix my problems and get back out there soon (next time with more Datsuns).

    wheel width vs tire width and driveability

    I think these are 15x10 -45 with 195/45... He seems to drive it around.

    I don't think that is causing my issue as it has run perfectly fine like this for years. I have wondered about it though so I went to Pepboys for an elbow a connector and some clamps and lengthened the pipe a bit. No noticeable change, still rich. Idle/cruise anywhere between 10.8-13.5 mostly around 12's...

    14x6 ZX rims, what size tires?

    185/55R14 for the lows, 22" diameter.

    Yes it is part of the long term plan. Also want dual rear Z32 calipers eventually, just because.

    Trying to troubleshoot the rich running condition without a multimeter or any real knowledge, I have been researching and decided maybe it was a bad ECU coolant temp sensor. It would be cheap and easy to replace anyways. I took a trip to the local Pick-and-Pull for a newer sensor and connector because mine was corroded. I pulled a few from various Nissans but decided to get one from a Q45. It had a better connector and was clean. Wired it up and initially I thought the problem was solved but the AFR's eventually went back to 12-13:1 at idle and cruise, so no change. I'm not sure what to try next at this point. Old sensor: New (I did clean it with a brass brush prior to installing, the connector terminals are super clean) : While wandering through the rows I found a few other things I could not leave in the yard. Early Z32 aluminum rear calipers (now have a set of 4 ;) ) and 87 300zx 5 lug front hubs. Future projects... :D

    I'm not sure your car could make it out there without losing the oil pan! :rofl: Marshall Petaluma Road, it is pretty but sooo bumpy. Like all our rural roads out here. :(
  14. Today my Datsun took me to work for the first time in months! I got off early so drove the long way home through west Marin and Sonoma counties. I had to keep it chill due to the new engine but it was a pretty nice drive. :D Tomales Bay in the background:

    Been driving, it's hard to stay out of the upper reaches of the tacho. I'm a little over halfway through the prescribed 500 mile break in. No more hiccups yet! Also at the urging of a friend I retrieved my defroster grills from the shed and got them installed for the first time since I took the car apart in 2007. No installed oics but I promise they are in there and make for a much more finished look. Never mind the cracked dash pad and windshield...
