  1. Yeah... I thought that after I read it back, but as my whole theory is a bit of stretch I thought "mmmmmayybee?"
  2. Perhaps timing is the key? If the R30 was the last hurrah for the L28 in a production Nissan, the reference used may be simplistic and simply link the L28 part of the engine No. to the last use of this identifier, with the last vehicle series to receive an engine No. beginning with L28? Particularly if the block in question was sold/supplied sone years after production ceased. Some parts publications seen to trim information to the basics as years go by so maybe in the interests of print space they simply refer to the last known model? Just a (convoluted) thought!
  3. To my knowledge the lead content of fuel was not to lubricate, like a graphite compound but to absorb heat from the exhaust valve and seat and draw it away with the expelled exhaust gases (is that a tautology ?!) In my experience the conversion to "unleaded" was mainly the use of stellite or hardened exhaust valve seats? We did the guides (k-line) just 'cause the heads were off and the valves were out and as a concession to the hours they had done. Hopefully someone who does this every day will jump in and make it clearer? P.S. I've been told (by an engine builder I respect) an L series is still good for 100,000 Kms + on the original valve gear and unleaded fuel
  4. I'm really sorry to hear this Kent, I had no idea. Sorry... I'm at a loss for words atm but will speak with you at a better time, although I will say I doubt Mark would put up with too much gloom and such shite. "C'mon there's work to be done!" Jim.:disappoin
  5. ... and Welcome! Jim in Sydney here. A fellow KGC10 owner had suggested we have a browse of your wares . We'll have to have a chat about your C110 project too, got lots of "inspiration" on these Cheers, Jim.
  6. Congratulations! The finished job is a credit to you:beer:
  7. Hi Leon, and thank you for posting this information. Very interesting! Funnily enough I suspected something along these lines but could never confirm it. Is that your engine as your avatar?
  8. Hi Kats. I experienced the same problem as Mike W. No videos, just that page with the error (?) message Mike posted.
  9. Hey Chris! That was a little project undertaken a few years ago by a (New Zealand?) member of the Prince Skyline Register here in Australia. He had the translation done and a few stickers made up......I've got one here somewhere!?...
  10. Thank you Kats! and a merry Christmas to you too. The videos are great. I think the tyres highlighted with the yellow lettering really put the car in context. Perfect for a 1970 performance car in the hands of a serious enthusiast. It just looks (and sounds) so right!
  11. I've been told that Queensland has a better supply of sedan screens than other states. If you strike out there, I may be able to get one second hand from a guy in NSW.
  12. I bet you said "DAMN!" or "BLAST!" when you discovered that little gem Nige!
  13. Hey Mark, can you back this up with some pics or other reference? I'm curious/interested in the Glorias of this era and the 4 barrel reference intrigues me! I've given my Prince Gloria manuals and parts books to someone who can actually use them so I've lost my own reference to the S44 G11 pics.
  14. If yours is worn and clunky....Click here!
  15. I'll be looking for a copy! Here's an article on the shed/barn find.
