  1. The trick to that kit is to pre drill the spot weld with a 1/8" drill then the cutter stays on track.
  2. Were straying way off topic here but finding a bushing that is already in production that fits is probably the all around best solution.
  3. I have one NOS mustache bar bushing on the self and hoping to find another one of these days.
  4. That is a great tool, back when you could get a hold of those bushings I had to cut the top lip into petals and fold them down in order to secure the bushing.
  5. I don't know if this qualifies as a tool but it's going to be very useful to me, My shop has a bit of a slope leading up to it. A car that is running can just drive in but most of the cars that come in can't do it under their own power so I tow them up with the lawn tractor but have to stop 10-15 ft. away, then hook up tow straps and pull the car in with a come-along. A long and tiresome job, so I picked up a 12v 3,500 lb winch, built a base for it, hook it up to a battery, hook the battery charger up to it and turn it to Start. Lots of juice flowing and pull the car into the garage in second
  6. I'm pretty sure making the fender and sugar scoop two separate pieces was a cost cutting effort by Nissan, making them one piece is a good look IMO but if it isn't done perfectly it looks terrible. Once they are welded you'll have to spend extra time and effort with a hammer/dolly and a long board sanding block to make sure there are no traces left of the seam.

  8. I was looking for wiper blades for the 510 this morning and stumbled upon these guys, http://datnissparts.com/ Kind of embarrassed to say I have never heard of them, they cover most of the Datsun line up and there prices are competitive, anyone ever ordered from them?
  9. Oh yeah they are comfy, RX8
  10. Have solved some problems and acquired others, fuel pump died on me so waiting a new to arrive soon, in the mean time trying to finish the rest of the car. I had a set of 240z sunvisors on the self so tried them in the 510, they fit! And fit perfectly, as if they might have been an possible option for Nissan. Spoiler and front bumper are on, brakes and clutch are bled, the rear window is done, carpet kit is in (those wrinkles are not in the finished job). Finished the SS threshold plates and installed the seats today, just need a fuel pump now.
  11. You can p/u carpet sets from MSA or Zcardepot, they are not really the same quality of carpet that came originally with the car but they are not too bad either, the price is reasonable.
  12. I've owned a lot Subies and have done that head bolt job a few times, real pain in the butt.
  13. Try submerging it in hydrogen peroxide out in the sun.
  14. Don't go, there's gotta be a work around. I love this build.
  15. This is a pre-oiler I put together yrs ago, I use it for every engine rebuild just before start up or on engines that haven't run in a long time. The air hose attaches to the nipple I welded on, 2 liters of fresh oil goes in the canister, oil filter on the outlet hose, usually I screw the fitting into where the oil pressure sensor goes. Fill it with 90psi and squeeze the handle, the entire oiling system is filled including the engine oil filter.
  16. It has a MAF but it came with the engine so I have no idea if it works or not, unplugging the MAF changes the rpm when at idle so I'm assuming that it works. I removed all the pollution control vacuum lines when I rebuilt the engine, the only vacuum line left goes to the fuel regulator, I'm pretty sure there are no vacuum leaks as I've very careful to eliminate that possibility on reassembly. Fuel pump is working while cranking. I disassembled the ignition switch today, cleaned and sanded the contacts, it seems to be working fine. I'm using a canam relay/fuse box to handl
  17. Haven't figured out the key/starter problem yet but had it running today and while the engine is warming up and the revs are normal and steady if I unplug the MAF the revs go anther 400 rpm higher, plug the MAF back in and they go back to normal, once the engine starts cycling unplugging the MAF makes no difference.
  18. Photovoltaic? Is it still the case that the panels will never pay for themselves in savings or has the efficiency improved enough?
  19. Terrific! Thrush muffler is very American sounding, JDM muffler although glorious race sound would get me in trouble with my neighbors and I think might get a bit tedious on long drives. The classic Z Story muffler is the sweet spot for me, thanks for doing this, excellent comparison by driving the same route, same revs, window open/closed.
  20. I got the engine started today! Couple of problems though and would appreciate any help. The engine is a 4cyl 2.4L KA24DE from a 1991 240sx, fuel injected, standard distributor with one ignition coil. The engine won't start by turning the key, I have to turn the key to ON and use a remote hand switch connected to the starter? Once the engine has started the revs seem normal until the engine starts warming up then the revs slowly climb to 1500-2000 and the revs cycle up and down, not hunting, the up/down cycle is predictable. Thanks.
  21. Okay, dumb question, what are these tools for?
  22. I'll trade places with you any day, would love to live in the desert.
  23. Have you painted the spokes in that photo or is the black paint original?
  24. Hard to be a good quality axe, the 1st one is a heavy and tall, that's the splitting axe, 2nd is a Timber framers hatchet, 3rd is my brother's old practice throwing axe, he use to perform in those logging shows in the Pacific NW, 4th one is just a nice all round general axe, 5th is a very old Adz used for squaring up timber beams, the 6th pick is a Timber framer's slick, also used in old time ship building, basically a 2 handed chisel, great fun to use.
  25. I believe those are Western Cyclone II wheels.
