Merry Christmas ya all.

 

This little beast had a VG30 / 5 speed combo, However the new owner wanted something more OG. 

Just happened to have a L18 / 5 speed. After a quick compression test POOP. needs to be pulled apart.

 

These guys came over had some beers and made a couple hours out of it.

Dave Witt Of Sac chapter Datsun group offer to teach me the reassembly process. New freeze plugs first. Then Paint

Now to determine what the head needs, looks like it had a re-ground cam. However nothing else to help that make this engine work better.

 

So head is coming apart for cleaning, surfacing, new seats, and value job
