But when you make an appearance you definitely get a reaction, same with Matt. :lol:

Re: Waynos work truck.

I am thinking I am going to have to remove the work truck transmission again, it makes noise when decelerating in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears, I cannot tell if it makes noise in 4th and 5th gears, it doesn't make noise at an idle with the clutch out in neutral, so I am unsure about what is going on, it ...

Re: Around Waynos house

Well it is all gone, no more waste oil left, I figured out at the very end how to get the veggie oil to burn predictably, I read how others burned waste oil and how they built their stoves, and how they routed their drip lines, well they put the end of the tubes within 3 inches of the cup which I tr...

Re: RATSUN

I don't consider the classifieds over there new myself, I have never actually went into them/browsed them myself since the first day they appeared several years ago, yes I have bought stuff for sale because of them, but I seen the parts for sale on the main Ratsun page at the lower right. I have to ...

Re: RATSUN

The thing is that I can see where others were posting while I h...

Re: Around Waynos house

I got rid of the kingcab diesel chassis/frame today, I had plans for it, but plans change, I watched it leave with someone that might be able to use it. That is one less thing to think about now, more stuff to get rid of though. I am almost done with the veggie oil now, it's really hard to get it to...

Re: RATSUN

Is Ratsun down for anyone else right now?
Is anyone getting an error page or is it just me?

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

As far as I know the 3.3 only came on the 720 with the mileage package which had the Z20S and 3.3 gears in the rear, I have only found 1 of them in a wrecking yard all the years I have been looking. If you are looking for 3.5 gears they are everywhere, I see them in the early hardbodies with H190s a...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

It has a 3.5 LSD in it right now, I don't really like the LSD in the winter(wet season) as if I give it too much pedal making a left turn it breaks loose and the back end trys coming around, I have been putting off putting my normal 3.5 gearset in hoping to find a 3.3, but I have been looking/hoping...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

What is that, sand paper?
What would happen if you used the drill and a bench wire wheel or wire brush(brass?) if no wire wheel?

Re: Around Waynos house

I just now had to go out there and turn off the bigger valve, the stove was freaking out and I had flames coming out the top of the stack. I could not get the camera to focus pointed at the sky, and by the time I got this photo of it the flames coming out were not nearly as intence. https://i.postim...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

OK, I called that place and talked with the guy, it has a 28 percent drop in rpms which equals around 400 rpms, I actually said I wasn't sure how to ask about the rpm drop, but he came back with that guess right away. The price was $1960.00 for the remote unit(divorced), it's $295.00 for the overdri...

Re: Around Waynos house

So all the waste oil is gone, I switched over to the veggie oil(clean amber color), that stuff is unpredictable, the main drip feed valve worked wide open with the waste oil, well this veggie oil pours thru it, I cannot find the happy spot, either the stove goes out or it burns way too hot for my li...

That remote unit looks like something I could deal with, but it has call for pricing. :cry:

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

Gearvendors are usually pretty pricey, good reputation though. Maybe you could modify a Laycock (more Volvo parts) like this. http://www.lotus-cortina.com/photos/mccoy/od.htm I have looked at a few of them(one in link below), but they are not divorced units like the one in that link, if I knew how ...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I went to the PNP today, I found another set of upper radiator brackets, the holes are in different places but will still work for what I need them for if ever use them at all, $6 something for both of them, I hunted around but could not find a better coolant reservoir, they are all too tall, or are...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

It's fairly tight up there but your right, it never occured to me that the air could get by without going thru the radiator. I am likely going to drive it today to see what the coolant temps do, but a top plate will be easy to make, I will think about it while I wait for the radiator hose inline fil...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I did no permenate cutting on the core support as I was worried that I could not reverse it if something did not work out, I will drive it for a while and decide if I want to move the radiator forward an inch on top and remove that gap in the last photo, I coud also open the front up to more air if ...

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

I worked on this all day, I was having cooling issues last summer when it was hot out, the modified 521 radiator just is not big enough with the turbocharger, so yesterday someone made me start thinking about what radiators I had and I remembered I had the Volvo SD25 diesel radiator in the shed, I w...

I did everything to make it seem like I have a shop except for having the building, so I am a fair weather mechanic.
