Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

Omni is fine. Just read. You can pull up all of the data sheets online before you buy anything.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

I was gonna mention that Draynor has a RB20DET coming out of his R32... But that is because he cant figure out how to get it to fire...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Havent done much... Wanted to do more this weekend... Anyways, Got the Air Box mounted. Its rigid. Installed some M6 rivet nuts. Made some ABS brackets, and used some ABS Pipe Glue to glue/weld the brackets to the box. https://ypflwa.ch.files.1drv.com/y4m3Fgviw0PqZVB5E1Vaz937w_U8UISrdGvylExtKfy-Je8Q...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Those look nice.

I have used Testors paint on my Datsun grill badge. I lost its luster pretty fast. You may try and find a decent clear coat for it.

Re: Waynos work truck.

I had 2 of my transmission to engine bolts fall out once. The two left were tight... I would just loctite and be done.

Re: Jacob's goon build

So I was looking at my wastegate actuator. Looking at how to make it work again. It wasnt going to. It was welded to a bracket and with the new clocking of the turbo it wasnt going to fit. So I bought a new one and made a bracket. https://yfhoxw.bl.files.1drv.com/y4mKI3cmZ-RZUEb19xwTcnGW8ZkeICjZhzhy...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Crimpers are Milwaukee brand. So yes Home Depot. I cut off the wire cutters portion, and then reshaped the crimping part until I got a crimp that I liked. I was only crimping aluminum, but they held up fine. I did manage to get a blister on my middle finger. I would have preferred to have bead rolle...

Re: Jacob's goon build

It was born back in the days of keeping the stock crossmember and steering system. No way it would have fit with the steering rack. And the new crossmember gives a lot more room (because I planned it that way) I did do some Oil pan mockup today. But not much, my head wasnt very clear. And because po...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Got a radiator cap. FYI Griffin radiators just use the generic Radiator cap that everything old takes. I think I just looked up a part number for an 85 Camaro. This one is 16psi. https://wpgivq.bl.files.1drv.com/y4mnbIjZPtEZHxqFtLiThgSKMenSZFxufMwKhUKZysg_t5maM7hd3-mWVDRiNhzg-xrQVjJ27oJaoTFtfrF8YE41...

Re: Jacob's goon build

I did some boring stuff. I also went to the junkyard looking for a usable fuel sending unit. But meh hate them all. BMW scored though. Bought 20 small hose clamps for anything under 3/4", I really like these stainless embossed clamps. I bought these ones from McMaster, but after shipping I should ha...

Thanks, Ive tried a few things to help reduce file size across the board. But Ill drop the resolution a bit... Today I felt a bit meh about it.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Quick question. Are my images too large? I can see them appear pretty quickly on my phone and computer, but others maybe not... Here are even bigger pictures (taken with my DSLR instead of phone). Another thing checked off the list. All intake tubes have been flanged. Started with this Milwaukee ele...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Something small. Turbo coolant feed line is done. I crimped it a little.... I might try and fix that. Still flows easily. https://zvgfvq.bl.files.1drv.com/y4mXZgbZLFW-SY9X1xL1irbgIw_b3JWiVYbp-nGx92Zrqapr6lFozUtaBWJp-MWMXndM1HvNpobKEzzCTR7olUPJHDL3aF1TWXNTGBhitoOrIu3zKscUTxV3NPtgSyqqndCmnYsyzbpmkG0cZ...
