Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

When my friend frame swapped his 521 to the 720 4x4 one, I really wanted him to run both tanks. Would have used a level sensors and a pump to have the 521 tank (bed mounted driver side) dump to the 720 tank (frame mounted passenger frame). And being that we had a body lift on it, gravity would have ...

Re: LZ20 engine build

I still buy a bit from Baxters. They are the closest to my house. And the main guy there knows his stuff. Just got a new battery for the BMW, with the NorthWestZ discount, it was $25 cheaper than anywhere else, and its a very good brand. If you didnt know, North West Z has a club discount through Ba...

Re: LZ20 engine build

Tilt the motor over 15 degrees like it sits in the truck. Now is it at 10 and 2? I always set my motor with gold link chains, or counting links on the chain.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

I put Thailand door seals on my car. Never an issue with them. They dont see much sunlight so they stay fresh, unlike a windshield seal.

I almost scored some Blizzaks on my same OEM wheels for $250. They were 70% tread life.

But yes good deal.

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Im going to try something. It cant hurt. The last time I went to a catch can and did all my drastic measures, I went from a quart of oil a week to a quart a month. Im not done. But in stages, things will happen. At least this 2002 car is ready for the new Oregon cell phone law. I have hands free ope...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

So fuck BMW and their "high efficiency piston rings." Pretty sure that is why my engine eats oil. Course at 175k, badly taken care of motors from any brand could do this. But I dont think this motor was badly taken care of. Everything I have ever touched has been OEM. Removing the Catalyti...

Re: Waynos 1966 datsun 520 ute

It could be the generic "thats an old car" thumbs up. I got thumbs up from all the Subaru guys specifically, kinda odd... If I drive somewhere and see a couple reverse parked BMWs, I park next to them (guaranteed no door dings on one side). Often I find another reverse parked BMW next to m...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I rebuilt mine. Probably a one-time rebuild. You have to pry some brass tabs out of the way to open it. Then bend them back to close. I nearly broke one. Just used a oring kit from Napa.

Yea, I think I eliminated 8 coolant hoses on the CA.

And yes that ribbed plastic. It's not horrid to clean. Better than techflex at least.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Techflex is super nice, looks nice too. Unless its in a dirty environment, then it collects dust/dirt. This also means the harness itself gets dirty. Inside a car its great, Outside it leaves some to be desired, Splitloom is better, but ugly (to me). At this point, Im thinking splitloom with techfle...

Light is sooo much better now. Well worth the investment. Much brighter than the 120W light I had up there before. And it totally worked for other goal, now at night I have light at the front of the garage with the door open. Also, weed eater head was not turning too well. Took it apart and after so...
