Not really a good update but....the throttle cable snapped a few weeks back. I have a pedal mounted cable but it's a pusher style which means i have to route it from the opposite direction / make a new mount for it.

I may just buy the correct cable over the winter & park her in the yard till next May.

Ok the new foot throttle works great & i kinda prefer it over the lever on the console. Its a crude setup for now...if i stay with the foot ill redo the design...

Hello everyone I just acquired one of these boats its a 1975 the block and hull numbersmatch but the interior of the boat needs a complete overhaul. Its got the original yellow gel coat with the original sundance and datsun stickers I seen a yellow one on here that is similar and it has the seats added to the bow that I am looking to add to mine. How can I upload photos?

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I love how your valve cover says DATSUN instead of NISSAN. Must of been just a boat thing?

Depends on the year the motor was built. I have a few different L series valve covers; DATSUN, DATSUN 1600 and NISSAN

75datjet -  please post pics of your boat when you can & where are you located ? Gradyfest - i picked up that valve cover years ago @ a yard in San diego....some early models had them.

As of a few weeks ago I put the boat in the garage for the winter to free up driveway space.
