Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well I couldn’t sleep, so I painted the heater control valve and cleaned up the new heater Control Panel. Hopefully have time to put it all in this week. But at least it’s done and ready to go in.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Hopefully it works good as new lol I did flush the heater core and he ok it all up with a free hour I had today. My valves and new heater Control Panel weren’t where I was at tho so I still have a bit to finish later. But for now level of heat is how far I open my window. Hopefully finish in the nex...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So I’m starting to think a heater would be nice haha. So I took the heater control valve out and rebuilt it. It’s a shame I have to paint it... it looks so nice. Now I just have to take the heater core out and give it a clean... and swap out my heater controls. I got a new set from the junkyard pick...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well these came in today! I’m pretty excited. I went with 8” Viking 200lb springs, that have mass amounts of travel and are really lightweight with a warranty to stay within 2% or the spring rate. The sleeves are just from an eBay set, they’re a little snug tho and won’t go completely on. I have a c...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Now onto my new suspension. These came in today and holy shit they’re cool. They’re nos performance knuckles that change role center and adjust caster and camber. They also correct steering angles for a lowered performance suspension. They came packed in an original box padded with newspaper adds da...

I don’t have allot of time with my shift at work, so I threw an offer out there to tune my sus so I I could get going quickly.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well good things are happening. I was talking with Leacaon about my front suspension and it turns out he had some ready to go 280zx struts he wasn’t going to use. They already have collars welded in place and adjustable inserts. All I need now is springs and sleeves to go low the right way. Got a gr...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

I’ve been researching coilover kits for my front end allot lately and I think I’ve come up with something magical. I’m picking up front struts from a 69 510 tomorrow to cut and re weld for short inserts. This should be easy for be because at this point I’m pretty highly certified as a welder. Then I...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well I figured out the starter issue. It turns over and starts right away if I hold back from turning the key all the way. My camber plates and door seals came in this week too. I installed the door seals today and I gotta say it’s a big change. I can really feel them seal hard when I shut the doors...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

I didn’t check the magnet with my rock auto order because I always get some 90s vw. But this time I got a cool little 411! I’ve never seen a Datsun one before lol

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

The solenoid will go but it won't spin. Then it will lurch 1/4 cranks then full then eventually it works fine. Maybe a relay?

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So today I replaced my starter that has been on its last leg for a long time. It still didn’t help much tho... I’ll have to look into it more later. Then I swapped out the thermostat because the temp has been inconsistent. It’ll run cold then a little hot then normal when I’m moving. Still didn’t ch...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well I’m on a role, I just ordered some 240sx camber plates so I can lower the front. They should bolt in, but adjustment will be reverse of the 240

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Awesome, good to know. So far I’ve been fairly satisfied with parts from Thailand. Hopefully I can get the rest of my seals soon too. But I’m thinking suspension and breaks will need a decent amount of work first.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Ordered my door seals today, first step for sealing my floors is making sure the constant waterfall is stopped lol They’re coming from Thailand, hopefully the shipping is fast and the quality doesn’t suck. I guess it’s worth the risk lol https://s1.postimg.org/1alez52g0v/78318_B53-_EA04-4_DDD-_BF80-...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

I’ve thought about moving it, but we’ll see how it all all ends up. Today I replaced my wing window seals with door seals from a 97-12 f150. I found the info on the 1200 wiki and I’d say it’s a decent replacement. Then I put some around my my trunk for a better seal. Not right for the trunk but prob...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So the roadster dual choke cable I bought was bad.... but I was able to rebuild it. I picked up solid wire to replace the braided cable and graphite lube. Got it all together and it’s perfect. Gotta love it when a fix goes right https://s1.postimg.org/7gz7t6g6sf/119_F9_D2_C-6_DE1-4_CDF-_A77_F-8_A8_F...
