  3. But looking at what you had written, a picture of Goertz is just parachuted in with no context to why (which is my point). He had very little to do with Nissan as a whole, and for me I will keep on the csp side of things, you show a picture of Goertz, yet don't name the two far, far, more important people (can you name them?), who, had sooooo much more input into the CSP311, and Nissan as a whole. Compared to others who worked at Nissan, his (Goertz) input is just a footnote. His foot note is worthy, but why, oh why just that? Why does the foot-note get mentioned, rather than the book? It

  5. So we can put this item to rest -- here's the partial label positioned over a complete Nissan label. A little tweaking was necessary to allow for the condition of the original, plus there are minor differences in scale between the two.

  6. Time for a little more knowledge today After i posted pictures from my T/C rod bushings in various forum-threads, people replied that i should swap to rubber in the back. After discussing a few topics i figoured out that original rubber bushings are still available new from Nissan and ordered a set, which i was able to pick up today: The problem: According to many people, the T/C rod tends to brake at the yellow area, when PU-bushings are used both in front and rear of the Frame-rail mount. This due to much counterstrength whith the hard PU-bushings. For sciences' sa

  7. No we aren't hacked... Yes, I am running a back end software that scans the site for keywords and provides links to external sites. It's not perfect, but, it can be helpful. In this case, it didn't work all that great.. lol. (unless one of you wants to buy products from them -- by all means please click on it) It brings in about $70/mo to help me pay for server costs. The service is called Skimlinks and works within just a few minutes. m

  8. I am trying to post in a way that is accurate and I encourage anyone to correct and/or add to what I have to say. I took the car on a proper drive after work today and everything from the snug fit of the competition bucket, the direct steering, the tight suspension, and the sound of the engine all made for such a thrill. Speaking of the Datsun Competition bucket seat; I bought it a number of ago from a guy that had it in a 1800sss Bluebird that was newly imported at the time. The 510 Bluebird coupe has a swept back roof varying from 510 sedan (2 and 4 door) with the large greenhouse t

  9. Metal elbow noodle brazed in. These are the one of the early sets of triples used on the #33 BSR 240 and you can see where they tapered bored them out to 50mm. The direct stream of 114 octane means after you lift and then get on the throttle a nice flame comes out the twin exhaust trumpets.

  10. Mr Purcell I don't know if you've seen this before but it's a pretty good write up, just an FYI. http://jarvas240z.blogspot.com/2013/01/electric-fuel-pump-installation.html

  11. Mr. Junkie is smok'in too much JDM. This has to be the funniest thread I have seen in a long time. Thanks for the chuckle this morning! Ya' know, the more JDM you smoke, the less your spring rate. Unless, of course, you vape with a TOR CO. Sorry, I couldn't help it.

  12. They went together pretty smooth. The circlips are very tight to the flanges. I still have to clip one in.

  13. Sure, you can use the tube method and it will get you there or close to it. Probably "good enough". The method that I'm suggesting is the 100% sure way to know that the fuel is at the proper height. Keep in mind that the float adjustment is THE PRIMARY MIXTURE SETTING. Get that right and everything else gets a lot easier. Not over the nozzle. The fuel level should be even with or just below the top of the small hole in the center of the nozzle. This is the hole that the needle slides into. The fuel level can be below the nozzle top as much as 1/16" but should never be over the

  14. I just wanted to make sure you guys know that the pricing on the registration site is for early registration. You need to register by March 15 to take advantage of those prices.

  15. You can run both pumps. By 74 (maybe earlier) Nissan used both pumps to try to resolve a fuel percolation, vapor lock, problem with limited success.

  17. I'm sure he had a good reason at the time, although I can't explain why. But, if I had to hazard a guess, he may have been trying to compensate for a float setting that left the fuel too low in the nozzle. Let's proceed. Your goal now is to get the fuel level within 1/16" of the top of the hole in the center of the nozzle. (Leave the nozzles at 2 1/2 turns) To achieve the 1 1/6" fuel level, you'll be adjusting (re-bending) the float tangs either up or down. At this point you don't care about the 9/16" float measurement. Ignore it. Don't even go there. After each adjustment, reassemble the car

  18. Picked out the material today, the original shop is going ahead and cutting these out with a laser cutter. Will post when completed. I believe the minimum order was 50 so I should have plenty of shims!

  19. I'm sorry but I find it hard to take the JDM Junkies thing seriously. He's got half a paper parts label, he's reading 'TORCO LTD' on it and concluding that 'TORCO LTD' were the manufacturers of suspension components for Nissan...? There may well be a parallel universe where somebody has found the other half of that paper label, is reading 'NISSAN MO' on it and concluding that 'NISSAN MO' were the manufacturers of suspension components for Nissan.

  24. 1952 Datsun produced their first sports car, the DC-3 "Datsun 20" RHD. They made 70, sold only 30, then converted the remaining 40 back to trucks.Japan was not ready for a Nissan sports car in 1952. 1959-60 Datsun produced their second sports car, the SP211 "Datsun 1000" RHD. They made only 20. Again Japan was not ready for a Nissan sports car in 1959. 1960-61 Datsun produced their third sports car, the SPL212 "Datsun 1200" LHD They made 228. Nissan skipped the domestic market and made all (100%) for the USA market. 1961 Datsun produced their fourth sports car, th
