  3. Honestly I don't know if yellow or clear is correct? Anyone?
  4. I am in need of the fasteners for the rubber bushing retainers for the brake, fuel, and clutch lines. Does anyone have or know of someone who might have a set. Are they still available? Thanks in advance for your consideration.
  5. I was the third owner, looking at this ad. I thought I purchased it from the first owner, but I purchased it our to New Mexico from Jim Campbell in the mid-70's from an ad in Auto Week. He had raced it and it had been in the run offs it was painted in the BRE Livery when I purchased it (the only picture of it in this livery is below). Les still has the car and is managing the upgrades. I will be picking it up in March if all goes as planned.

I put the cast iron and cast aluminum in the freezer and the piping for re-plating came out fairly easily.


  11. Is the back cast iron black or natural cast?
  12. Rebuilding a smog pump. Wanting to confirm details. The back casting of the pump looks as if it was black. The pulley, mounting bracket, and adjustment arm Datsun engine blue. Can someone confirm this for me. Also this is all of the parts getting ready for paint, and plating next a set of hoses. I will post more as this project progresses. Thanks PS I am still looking for a confirmed source for the Datsun blue engine paint, not something close but the real deal. If you look closely at the photo I have not blasted the adjustment arm yet, it has a good clean coat of the original paint for co
