    Recommended Posts

    They are both flow through. The resonator is 2.25 and the muff 2.5. 

    No buyers yet. Going to a car show tomorrow out in Radium BC so the 73 still thinks I like it, then will get to proper advertising next week.

    I have some nice tips LOL

    If you just had a propane tank hooked to those like the old batmobile, now that would be cool.

    Went out to the shop Thursday morning and discovered a wet spot under the rear end. Now what the hell is going on? I've put a total of maybe 100 km on the car so far.

    Turned out to be a leaking side seal on the diff. This will never do. Ripped the whole dang rear end apart and while I was at it did more "detailing". Decide the red diff and drive axles just don't fit the vibe so..

    Here is the seal. Totally ripped up. No idea why. The other side is perfect. Easy enough to change.

    And removed all the grime from the back end. Down to the white paint. Not a hint of any prior undercoating, every  seam is exposed.

    I suppose this all should be undercoated, but not until the next owner sees this rustless wonderland.

    Tempted to steal a helicopter and fly over to peak at this gem...
    Nice work and tip of the hat for the open discussion of issues and repairs! Honest disclosure is always the best policy. You are indeed a true gentleman!

    There's a big school yard right across the street. come on down!

    Thanks also for the kind words. Just always works out best this way. Now if someone would just buy the dang thing before I decide I love it too much to keep it. That blue is growing on me.

    I presume you extracted some sort of blood oath from the buyer in regards to their new responsibilities to this forum.

    Not sure I want to admit what's next. It IS a Datsun, but not nearly as pretty...

    It's complicated. We'll see where the car actually ends up.

    That looks like a 510? If so I have questions for you...

    510 indeed.  Ask away. Unless you're asking if I'm crazy then I can just say absolutely.
