Re: Around Waynos house

Well I guess I have more work to do on this Mini now, I kept feeling moisture on the driver side floor, so this evening I lifted the rug, and several layers of matting and it was wet underneath, so I removed it all and found major rust, it also looks like some moron was jacking the car up using the ...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I have been driving this truck most the time now, I figured out how to start it the first try even when cold outside(above 45 degrees), for what it is I am amazed how dependable it is considering the starter is held on with one bolt and that turnbuckle that holds it up(the top bolt is stripped out)....

Re: Around Waynos house

That is a good idea as I have a spot, but I am going to try and sell it before then.

Re: Around Waynos house

Thanks The guy that attempted to clean the primer over spray off the car from when I painted the 520 asked if I had the hood badge right away when he seen the car, it needs the hood badge and I bought one, guaranteed to be here by the 21st of November. I suspect that this is not going to get much at...

Re: Around Waynos house

I spent way over an hour trying to find one of these badges for sale, I had already checked ebay and could not find one but it turned out I didn't word it properly, I finally found one at Moss Motors and wording it properly on the ebay search found me one there, still there was only one in 10 pages ...

Re: Around Waynos house

Re: Around Waynos house

I have a Baxters real close to me, I rode my bike there yesterday but it wasn't a total waste of time as I got some exercise, I used to buy everything I needed there, now I can get the off the shelf stuff elsewhere for cheaper. There are other auto parts stores within riding distance, but my bike is...

Re: Around Waynos house

I Hope I found the WIX the number I need, I searched several ways and the only one that showed a positive result was "oil filter for 1980 Mini" and the result I got is below, the quotation marks were required to get a positive result, without them all I got was places that sell oil filters. Parts Eq...

Re: Around Waynos house

I started it today, it had no coolant in it so I only ran it maybe 10 seconds, it appeared to run normal so I shut it down and called it a day at 5:30pm, that is the longest I have worked on a vehicle in a while. I went to Baxters to get an oil filter for it, when I pressure washed it the sticker wi...

Re: Around Waynos house

I forgot, a box arrived today, a few Nissan diesel parts, a DPC Module, an injection pump controller, 2 glow plug relays, 6 glow plugs, a gas fuel filter and a couple turn signal things, what they are called escapes me now, not sure if any of it works, I will test the diesel stuff later, one of the ...

Re: Around Waynos house

I am not liking the Mini right now, almost everything was a pain getting that engine in there, my language was colorful. I sure hope I got that shit in the clutch cover right, pulling it out again would not likely happen soon, it went in the hole easier than it came out, but I knew what was coming, ...

Re: Around Waynos house

I had the key in wrong, once I borrowed my friends socket set that had the correct size I took it off and looked at everything then when I put the key back in it sunk farther in, you can see the difference in the gaps, you can also see the top of the nut is in farther. https://i.postimg.cc/pTxPQ2xt/...

Re: Around Waynos house

OK, less over spray on stuff if I quit painting, the original color wasn't quite red, it was more a mostly Red with a hint of Orange in it, but I didn't have anything like that in my paint can stash, so I went with the Red. You can see that dirty engine block with a couple spots where it has a hint ...

Re: Around Waynos house

I found a color that is a little closer to the exterior color.

I am now wondering if the block would look better this green than the red it is now.

Re: Around Waynos house

I got the rear seal today, I also remembered to get the intake/exhaust gasket as mine was toast, it was $8.75 for both, I said something about shipping and he said he absorbs that, I walked out feeling kinda guilty. The replacement rear seal is different, the outside is the same but the center is sl...

Re: Around Waynos house

OK, I understand what you are saying, I adjusted the clip in that second photo so it could be seen better, the first photo is how it normally is(in the groove). I can see when installing the yokes it may take a little finesse to get the clips inside the barrel of the yoke, so forcing them in is not ...

Re: Around Waynos house

I cleaned up the wiring today, but I did it without the engine in the car, so I don't know if all the wires will reach now. All the wires sticking out in the middle are all that go to the engine, they all go to different places on the side of the engine. https://i.postimg.cc/bvvjBVTb/007.jpg There a...

Re: Around Waynos house

By the way I believe this is the clip that holds the yoke in on both sides, you can see it better in the second photo, it's in that groove on the shaft.

Re: Around Waynos house

I pressure washed the engine compartment a couple days ago with my little pressure washer that doesn't have as much pressure, since then I have been waiting for it to dry out doing little stuff, I also am waiting for that rear seal, everywhere that the paint had pealed/came off in the engine compart...
