H5's Field Trip....To Wagon land.

Postby H5WAGON » Wed Jan 15, 2014 1:34 am

Well to start off, a few know me from that other site. I started a build thread awhile back and kinda lost focus a few times..lol So I thought I'd bring it on over here. Since I'm back into the Datsuns and I don't really see any escape :troll: If there is a "Story of my life thread I will add a intro. :fyea:

Any way back to the 510....which leads to more Datsun stories. Let's just say I owned a few, nothing outragous...but I know my way around a L motor and most of the odd shit that goes on with these old cars. 1st car was a 2dr in 1986. Owned a few more in the 90's sold'em off cause I got all grown up...NOT! So one of my friends that had 510's in the 90's also, calls me up and said....guess what? I got a 510 wagon, I'm like no way, he was like way! I was like...I'll be right over...lol So long story short his 510 had a bad motor and the guy he got it from offered up 2 parts carts for the trouble and he also needed them moved off the property they were being stored on. So we planned a trip and this is what we pulled up to.

This was after pulling it out where it sat since 1992...? About....all that carpet in the background was in the back of my goon.
And yes those Amber Tail lights are in safe keeping...my buddy got those.

Starting to look like a build thread. Looks like you kept it a 4 speed. L20b or something else?

Yes, 4spd....original one crapped out after 6-8 months so I just threw in another one. I have a Dogleg that I need to throw in...just need to get extra x-member modded.

L20B holding up ok....uses some oil, but starts up every day, so I can't complain. I have been planning on pulling the head and change valve stem seals. Just slackin on it.

Ok, lets see if I can get this up to date....while waiting on parts for my new wagon and the temps to peek up enough to go work outside again.
So it was like this for about a year...Whit car had a Ford V6...that blew up, swapped in a Single cam KA with Automatic, but then Sold it :(

Image
Happy car on my way to Canby. 1st time.
Image
Little spare I picked up at the wrecking yard. :)
Image
Made me a Battery hold down when I replaced the battery...it was flat on top and had some Aluminum stock laying around.
Image
So after I sold the white wagon I was wanting to lower my car etc....Had some rally ideas when I had both wagon. But with the white one gone, back to street ideas for my goon.
Picked up these 200sx Turbo wheels from Phil, rode around on these for a bit....Still stock height.
