    71 fuel tank reinstallation

    Try applying heat.....the rubber should soften up to slide over the neck. Don’t get the heat gun too close to the gas tank or the fumes could cause a problem lol.
  3. Hi Zedy....Looks great, but you need to work with those white safety socks! 😬

    SU's from Hell?

    They’re not kinda, they’re really sexy. Can you imagine 6 SU’s on a 240Z? Wow, I wonder if that has ever happened? Bet it would be a blast!

    Duffy's 1/71 Series 1 240z build

    This is going to be a very nice driver.....looking great!
  6. 205-55-16......I tried em all......these work really well without rubbing on dips. Same height as stock.
  7. That’s a rack for my Go-Jack foot jack dollies. I have to dollie the white car around to fit the 4th car in that garage. I used to use these, but it’s a pain to roll around a jack to put them under the car. Now with 4 pumps of the foot on each Dollie, the car is ready to push round. 😏
  8. Finished putting Eibach and Tokicos in the white 70 car. Looks like it lowered it more than usual when installing Eibachs. Tokicos are getting hard to find.....had to pay up from Whitehead Performance for these.

  12. Just constantly “doing stuff” to all my cars. I’m going to arrive Thursday, so won’t be entering a car. Looking forward to meeting you Jim, and all the other Datsun addicts!

    New engine

    I'm building a new engine. I'll use the L28 N42 block bored .040 over with an L24 crank and rods, L28 P79 flat-top pistons and a high quench P79 head shaved and shimmed .080 inches (should be 9.2 to 1 C/R). What this will be is a very over-bored L24 because I really like the higher revving L24's and bigger is always better.....right? Anyone build this motor before or heard of anyone else building it? I'll update as I build on.

    New engine

    All feel smooth and balanced, but the L24 crank and rods is smoothest to 7000 rpm. They all are a blast in different ways.....come to Richmond and we’ll drive em all Charles.

    l24 blocked engine build - Few Questions

    Pretty much nailed it Zed Head. I prefer the P90/P79 head shaved down and shimmed up to get 10 to 1 CR minimum. A high duration, high lift cam (I run 17 degrees static advance on all 5) with performance valve springs to handle the rpm. Swirl valves help the engine breathe....I run SU’s and love their simplicity (can’t seem to step up to trips)....they work amazingly well for all my engines, through full rpm (up to 7500) with no sign of not being able to adequately feed them. The only thing I think would really bump them all up is CR. If I could run 13 to 14 to 1 CR on pump gas, I would. All 3 of the different engine set ups that I’ve built are a blast. Like kids, it would be hard to say which one I love most!

    New engine

    Sorry Zed Head.....no numbers yet....best guess is close to the L28 crank engines I’ve built....170 at the fly....195-200 at the wheels. The two Stroker Motors are first in line for the dyno, just can’t seem to find the time. I will tell you they are a smooth accelerating blast to drive, but the strokers are real torque monsters....they feel like they want to break something. 🤪

    Finally Taking the Plunge - EFI

    This is going to be a fun project to watch! Way to go modern Jim.

    Definitely makes the restoration when done right......

    L28 Build - Suggestions/Advice Please

    Yes Jonathan....The L28 crank motor is 170 hp at the wheels, so approximately 200 at the flywheel. Eiji said the Stroker motor should push 250 at the flywheel, but I haven’t dynoed one yet.

    L28 Build - Suggestions/Advice Please

    My Isky Stage III is 290 degrees duration. I’ve built 6 of the .080 shaved P79 head/ F54 block different variations. All 6 have Isky Stage III Cams. Four have .040 over flat top stock pistons. Two have Datsun Spirit Forged Pistons (they are 3.1 Stroker Motors). I built two with L24 cranks with L28 pistons and rods, two with L28 stock cranks with L28 pistons and rods and two with LD 28 Stroker cranks and forged Pistons and rods (Datsun Spirit built the two 3.1strokers). I love each and everyone of them......the strokers the most😍. I would definitely go with the Isky Stage III....do it now or you will regret it IMO. I have several build threads under (topics) on my home page you can reference. No ping at any rpm or load on any of the six engines.....fabulous set up you are building.....kudos. Let me know if I can help. Guy

    L28 Build - Suggestions/Advice Please

    Yes jonathanrussell....outer springs are shimmed .080 to make geometry correct.

    L28 Build - Suggestions/Advice Please

    I agree with madkaw.....higher lift cam with more duration. You can pretty much go with a higher CR with the P79 head, however, you are pretty well locked in with your build. I love my Isky Stage III cams (.490 lift) no clearance problems. Sounds like a nice build. Good Luck
