Re: Around Waynos house

No I am not a DROPS member. Met Ted a few years back at Solvang and up until I moved north he used to stay at my place overnight on his way to Solvang

Re: Around Waynos house

Now that I’m a lot closer to the Neal’s place I really wanted to attend this year but the timing with work/other shows sucked. Already have this penciled in for next year. I’m planning to attend a Subaru show at Ridge Motorsport and the Shasta Datsun meet next month. Wayno, I think you know may who ...

Re: Simple way turbocharge a gas engine

I find hard to believe there is such a fuel pump, but there is a lot of stuff out there I am sure I don’t know about. Generally, a fuel pump will put out a set pressure and that’s it, unless you can vary the voltage and either speed up or slow down the pump. Not sure how pressuring a vent can increa...

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

Here is the last one. This will most likely be parted out. https://i.postimg.cc/pdRcQfzM/C9-B99974-66-BA-465-F-99-DF-24-D2-D1-C88-E45.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/T3841MPw/FD30-BBCD-A2-AF-4-C4-E-ADBB-CC3289-F4-E9-AA.jpg It looks pretty good from the outside, but there is no interior, engine, trans and t...

Nice work. I’m sure you will find the need for a couple mods but the basics seem to be there.

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

I believe the stock setup is front sump. Been awhile since I paid attention. The steering is behind the crossmember but I may swap in a power R&P.

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

Here’s a WWYD question. I am contemplating a drivetrain swap for the wagon. I really want to drop a 60 degree efi V6/4 speed auto into her primarily because I want to make this a smooth cruiser for long distances with good power and mileage. I really don’t want to mess with OBDII or electronic trans...

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

I need to do a much more thorough investigation into the condition of both these cars, but as it stands right now the plan is to sell the blue car to cover the cost of the purchase and have some funds to put toward the restoration of the wagon, provided it’s condition is what I think it is. The othe...

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

Here is the wagon I got today. Day got off to a shit start when one of my trailer tires decided to separate about 30 Miles into the trip. There are no places here that may have a tire that are open Sunday so got lucky and U-Haul had a car carrier available. Rest of 7 hour round trip was thankfully u...

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

These were sold overseas as the Mitsubishi Galant but the model did coincide with the introduction to the US market so it is possible. These still do have a sweeper speedometer and by this time the Japanese had moved to the gauge style. They are about the size of a 1200 inside but have a somewhat la...

Re: Patient persistence may have paid off

So here is the 1st one I picked up yesterday. Going to go get the wagon tomorrow and the other car probably right after Powerland (canby). Turns out this one has a pretty rare 5 speed conversion and is pretty straight and relatively minor rust. The guy was breaking it down in anticipation of startin...

I plan to be there at least on Saturday, maybe Sunday. Probably bring my turbo Roadster Saturday and if I decide to go Sunday I’ll bring my KA 521.

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I am pretty sure any turbo for a Subaru EA82T motor would work. As best I know, the XT 4cyl turbo motor was no different than the ones in the GL/GL10/Brat. One way to make sure it would be the same is there should be an A/R # somewhere on the turbo, usually on the compressor housing. That might open...

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

If that chop saw has a fiber type blade, you should swap it for a carbide tip dry cut blade. Cuts faster and cleaner and as long as you don’t lose teeth, can be sharpened a couple times. For the skin, I’m not sure what you can do stiffen an original skin without making a new one out of thicker metal...
