  1. Your doomed to be poor the rest of your life. How many times a week do you go to eBay a week to look for parts? See what I mean!
  2. I had a 75z one time that had pin holes. I bought the POR 15 tank repair kit. It worked pretty good! You can go to their site and check it out.
  3. Wow that was great! I had no idea that these other mods may be required. Was the ZX that you transplanted a turbo? I don't understand why the intake would have to be replaced? I was planning on putting in the distributor that I had on my 76 into the new engine and plugging up my headers in the place of the ZX exaust (maybe plug the EGR for now till I can afford another header with EGR). I am assuming that injectors on the new engine would be low flow and not the high flow turbo ones. What is the rule that you used to determine correct distributor orientation? TDC vs plug one fire? Your really getting me down becase I thought the transplant would be a little more plug-n-play than it may be. This engine is in such pristine condition that I didn't want to have remove anything and replace it with parts from my old dogged out 76 engine with 100+ miles on it. Anyway thanks for helping me realize the full scope of the project.
  4. This is an 1981(2) engine that had very few miles before the car was totalled the same year it was purchased. THe engine was boxed and stored in a wharhouse since then. The engine still had the original oil and in it and is in mint condition. I am getting ready to transplant it into my 76 but there are some vacume hose connections that I'm not sure where they should go? Also I had an AFM boot that looked like it was for this engine but I'm not sure. Also if anyone knows what year this engine is fur sure then let me know. F54 block with P79 head. Thanks in advance for your help. :classic: http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=17258 http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=17260 http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=17261 http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=17263 http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=17262
  5. There is absolutly no doubt in my military mind that this engine has no been touched or painted since assembly in the Datsun factory. If its because of some over sprayed blue it's becasue it was done that way in the factory.
  6. Yeh when I saw it I almost creamed my drawers. Got it on eBay for $600 and it was in Miami where I live :tapemouth .....ALOT less than a rebuild would have cost me and the comfort in knowing that everything is exactly to factory spec. I am going to take some more pictures and post them just for future reference of what the engine looked like from the factory.
