Cleaning up the Loogie......what a mess...

Recommended Posts

I gotta ask, what are you using to clean your engine bay and fuel door etc? Looks like your getting great results!

 

This is what I've been using to clean-up.

Over the past week...

 

Evap is back together and fuel tank back in. I wanted to paint my muffler and the bottom of my tank also.

Next, I took the hatch off to do the weatherstrip. Problem right away...

 

Hatch strut almost severed. I'll deal with that later.

While I was digging around behind my left rear quarter panel, found this stuffed waaaaay in the corner.......

.......speaker wire???

 

 

My radio light has always come on when I hit the button, but I never found a speaker or wires anywhere. Hooked up a speaker and.....just like that, I have tunes. Mounted the speaker and we're good!

Found a threaded hole....convenient!

Now I got tunes for the drive to Canby!!! :thumbup:

Gott'em from Pierce Manifolds in Gilroy. If you call them it's cheaper than ordering online. More shipping options also. I think they were $36 for a pair.

 

Nice to know you have triples!! I think I was the only one at CanBy with'em.

This was all done before Canby

 

 

Clean up spare tire and compartments.

The hatch strut....also done before Canby.

 

Remember?? Stud was eaten almost all the way. Had no idea.

 

IMG_1518.jpg

 

 

 

I couldn't pound the stud out because it was welded in....so broke out the grinder.

 

IMG_1519.jpg

 

IMG_1520.jpg

 

 

 

Hit it with a center punch and drilled my pilot hole.

 

IMG_1641.jpg

 

 

 

Here is my idea. Found a spacer that a 6mm bolt will fit through without any play cause I don't want it rattling. I'm going to press the spacer into the strut and have it hinge on the bracket while the nut & bolt hold everything together.

 

IMG_1644.jpg

 

IMG_1643.jpg

 

 

 

Just under 10mm. 3/8" bit should be good. I want it snug

 

IMG_1645.jpg

 

IMG_1647.jpg

 

IMG_1651.jpg

 

 

 

 

Filed out the bracket hole so it can pivot freely.

 

IMG_1646.jpg

Took everything to the sand blaster...

Pressed in the spacer just enough...

Back together

Haven't had time to do much to the Zed since Canby.....valves were getting a little noisy, though...

 

 

....so I adjusted them........pics?

 

 

 

Letting it get nice and HOT....

My engine was not treated nicely before I acquired it...

I had 3 tight valves....all intakes...the T marked the ones that were tight

 

 

IMG_2387.jpg

 

 

Sounds much better now....I'm gonna order some smaller idles for my carbs in hopes of getting rid of the exhaust backfire on decel. I was supposed to get 50s but they sent 55s so I went with it.

My girl and I went out for her Grandma's B-day last weekend and she was a little dressed up....on the way back she was feeling good and was really enjoying riding in the Z (we don't get out much lately and she's a newbie to Datsuns)....she suggested we go take some pics....can't say no to that :thumbup: .......it was hot out Sunday so we only took a few :sweat: .....she had fun, though, and we will be doing it again. These are the ones she released for now.....
