620 / KA24DE swap underway! pics pics pics.

Recommended Posts

The parts hoarding has begun. 

Amazing what the local “ex-KA” drifter guys are basically giving away. 

Here are some pics of my collection so far:

(don’t mind the pink valve cover..I have 4 more to play around with painting or powder coating)

Anyone want a perfectly running webberized L20B and 5 speed?

Not knowing the true history of my low cost ex-drifters KA...I tore it down. 

Now to find a machine shop in my area that knows KA’s. 

I just want to rebuild it stock unless it needs bored. Then maybe I’ll go with Wisecos  and junk. 

I am really enjoying my week off 😬

I've got a stash of vintage Momo steering wheels in a box in the shop. Old performance stuff is very cool.

I paid a pretty penny for my vintage Datsun  Momo horn button...but it was one of those "I gotta have it" things...

Not to thread jack, but I just got one more vintage Momo. A 1965 Austin Healey Sprite I built when I was in my teens has re-entered my life, and with it came an old Momo that I had in it. I sold this car back in about 1999 or 2000 and it has been floating around in my consciousness for the last couple of years. I even paid my registration service to find it's whereabouts last year, but then never did anything with the info. I had a dream the other night that I was back into building small race cars, and that my Sprite was one of the cars in my shop. I woke up and searched Craigslist for a similar car, and there it was...my old car. 48 hours later (and a one day trip to Brea, CA to get it) it is back in my posession. It even still wears the stickers I put on it back then.

 

So yeah, one more Momo in the collection. That makes about 10 now.

Picked up in Brea...my neck of the woods. I wonder if I've seen it locally. 

 

Back to the original poster...you kind of lost my interest when you put the Thailand flares on it. I honestly detest that look, but to each their own. 

 

You got me back with the Momo and Datsun horn button. 🙂 Keep it up!

The flares are definitely an acquired taste, but it all comes back to precedence. They do have a place in history, therefore I have learned to accept them.
