  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 st
  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.
  16. That it just plain crazy!! I've been following this one too Nigel. He even says in the ad how damaged it is. If you follow the clues you can see he only bought it off eBay a very short while ago for about $75, and some damage was mentioned then! He discovered further damage on disassembly and consequently got a refund. No fault with the seller. FFS he started the bidding at 99cents. I mean, there's a clue right there :eek:
  17. Fixed! My Japanese references (from 1973-1983) refer to first selling time for the C110 series domestically was 47.9*, which translates to 9th month of 1972 . *Begin at 1925,(beginnings of the reign of Emperor Hirohito) add 47.
  18. This is from Racing Car News Jan.1973 page 15. A bit more period info to digest.
  19. Bill, you're a card! You should be dealt with!
  20. Always good to hear from you Brian...and I vote your next Skyline to be a real KPGC10 Please keep us posted!
  21. INTEREST?!?! ...ANY INTEREST HE SAYS!! HA! Tell you what, I'll show you mine if you show us yours:laugh: The one I have is a bit of a mystery to me. Issued 10 December 1970 It's in English The diagrams show a LHD Nissan 2000 GT 4door (GC10) What market was it for??
  22. Hi Dave. Good to hear from you on the forum again. I often ponder on the fate of your C10. Rear ended in Vegas?...I wonder if it will turn up some day or was it scrapped?

    Cheers, Jim.

  23. Absolutely amazing..........Thanks for the comprehensive reply Jorge. Details! I just love the details. What about the handbooks and such? The previous owner was in a prime position to acquire all the manuals. Did they keep the owners handbook with the car?
  24. Who would have believed a "barn find" C10? ...with such low mileage? well maybe it's 106,500Kms but even that would be extemely low and desirable. Thats pure gold Jorge! It certainly looks very original throughout (steering wheel?) . I'm glad you found our little classic Skylines corner of the 'net and hope you're here for a while. Just what did you have to do to get it driving again? Any plans? Any more in your part of the world?
  25. Yep, put the goo down, stick ya screen to it and replace your trims. Sounds easy doesn't it:devious:
