Right on man. Keep up the good work. I am also removing the woodgrain look for the carbon fiber as well. I got some stuff off eBay a few months ago and ended up putting the project aside to finish rebuilding my SUs (85 percent complete) Ahh, Datsun... how I love thee and hate thee all at the same time.

I saw three of these parked outside the local Starbucks this morning, which tells me only one thing. There's too many self indulgent wieners in this city with too much bloody money. Now, if I was driving a 1973 610 four-door...

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!"

Like I had described, you can move that funky bracket on your floor board that holds up the front of your center console. Use 4 self-tapping sheet metal screws and a dab of silicone caulking for the floorboard when you reinstall the console. As for the issue with reconnecting your air ducts, use a section (4 inches or so) of bicycle inner tube and stretch it over both the air inlet on the dash and the flange on the back of the console. If you have A/C you'll notice a big difference in air flow as the old design would leak air around the edges and cause for your dash to get more cool air than you do.

if I may make a comment about your fan setup?

it seems you have the fan setup as a pusher. That fan was desiagned to draw air not push it so its probbaly not moving nearly as much air as it should. Also the fan shroud is now blockign air instead of collecting air. I would get a proper flexlite or something if I were you.

I want an image dammit....

im going to but what is nessisary for everyone here to understand this is not just a project it is also my daily driver it was more important to get it back on the road and it moves more then enough air to keep it cool it hits 110 here in the summer and i have never overheated but yes at some point when cash allows i will be switching to a different fan

Oops, I forget that your car is a '76, with the e-brake handle on the floor, not like my '73 with it's infamous umbrella handle ebrake mounted below the dashboard. I will see the car here in a few days, bring the center console, heck I'll bring my spare center console from the '73 and we'll just hack it and make it *look* stock :)

ok a poll of sorts i have a few things to to to my baby obviously but the question is this what to do next? i have noticed the motor is leaking oil from a few places so it looks like its time to reseal the whole motor 9this has never been done in its 32 years of existance) my exhaust is currentlu clamped together using adapters to hold in a universial cat ( not required federal car but wanted it to help pass smog) so the exhaust needs to be done then there is the suspention all the bushings in the front are in need of replacing and i need to get a new upper strut mount for the right side its turning to mush any ideas on what i should do next?

How are you John.

Just got in this site. Good to see your 610 with the gear box in. I went for a ride with Brad ( buddy, he is painting my 610 ) and he has a dogleg coupled to a L18 with twin Dellortos....runs nice.:) Dogleg trannies are cool.

About your poll, man, you should had gotten the engine off at time of tranny change. I know how it is....we always realize it....when it is late!:eek:

Anyways, you can change all the engine gaskets with the engine on the car.But easier with engine out of the vehicle, much much easier and faster. With an engine stand, it is a breeze. Track auto even rents engine stands.
If you change the gaskets, remember to always torque bolts to specifications, that assures you a leak proof job.

About the strut upper mount getting mushy, what are you talking about? Is it loose?

About the suspension bushings, if not broken, I would leave it alone and would concentrate on fixing the oil leaks/gaskets and replacing all hoses. Make it safe and reliable.

A piece of advise, if this is your daily driver , try getting a cheap motorcycle, so you can work on your car with peace, dilligently and with out rushing. It is the only way. a second vehicle is a must.

Next time you go by a junk yard try looking for a set of 510 bumpers and bumper brackets. Those work on 610s. Ideally the 73 610 bumpers are the desired item, but meanwhile, 510s will do.

Bonvo and I got together in Sacramento, at my wife's uncle's place, this past weekend. When he comes down, we are definitely all getting together. I was up there picking up my new project: '53 GMC 1/2 ton truck. It's really for the wife, but I don't mind another vehicle, the truck just needs to take a number. My 610 is now the priority, but I will be working a little here and there on the truck.

Bonvo got my '73 center console to cover up the hole in the floor from his 5 speed upgrade and I traded him some cash for his coupe front center console. Not a bad trade, all in all, and he has a stock center console for his coupe. Ahh, the joy of keeping it all Datsun...
