Here again! With lots of new photos to share!
Let me introduce myself
I'm Jimmy, 16 year old. Building this Datsun for my summer car! I love to do things on my own and always happy to learn something new.
Back to car, haha
Custom paint booth 666
Sorry for flash, but the Nissan logo is actually matte black!
Looks shiny and nice You should compare this to the old photos that i have on page 1!!!
Finger corner, sorry. But more shiny and awesomeness
AND FINALLY I MADE IT, the bearings, here you go
First up, we went shopping to our local junk yard and found this lovely stove for car parts. ( 1 hour in 175 C ). and before that, the bearings needed to be in 300 C for like 10 min roughly, just that the factory grease would melt off. And then I used some paint removal to finish them. After that, I used some steel wool to have nice contact with the final product (techline glide something).
Sad to say, it didn't go so well at the first time But the second time was a charm and we had a nice coating!
Out of stove and ready!
Then it was time for piston coating! (reduces heat from engine = more efficiency) 3 ready, 1 to go! Shiny
Ahhaha, this part was awkward, the stove started to smell so bad so i had to put it outside! There was some gas leaking out of the vents, ugh...
But after all it was a happy ending! Here are the finished pistons with coating (back there is my fathers toyota's pistons, but on the front is my datsun's pistons)
And MORE good news! I got a cheap BRAND NEW turbo! It was like 355euros, normally they are like 450 euros and up, but i ordered this one from ebay.uk . So got my turbocharger and I'm working on fuel injection system next. Yes! I'm changing to megasquirt, because I met one Swedish guy who has a datsun with turbocharged A15 and megasquirt so I may have some tips from him!
Tomorrow I'm going to assembly the engine to half ready Stay tuned for more~ Leave thoughts and feel free to comment!
