I'm just waiting for them to get back into stock, Thanks for the info

dig the sheet metal door panels. do you know what gauge/thickness you used?

Thanks,

I believe it is 30-gauge, i could be a little bit off but it's definitely under 1mm

So I started my head gasket change.

Been super busy with work, but here we go.

Adam, Thanks for the heads up on that tool. Here it is in all of its glory

Valves are real dirty.

And finally the culprit, most likely why there is oil in my coolant...I think

looks like the culprit to me man!

 

 

if you haven't reassembled it yet then make sure to get in there with some razor blades and clean off the head and block surface the best you can!

 

And if you have a spare head bolt ask levi about making a tap to clean the head bolt threads

The corner windows go in pretty easy. I never had new gaskets to install so I was always able to just push them in and work the gasket by hand. The new gaskets may be a tight fit though. Search youtube for the soapy string method, works good for windshields and the like.

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 like using 3/16" or 1/4" cotten cord & spray it with silicone lube, don't soak it just make it slippery.

 

When setting the gasket with the string, don't just pull it straight out, work it out in a circular motion pulling the lip over the body of the vehicle.

 

It really helps to have a second person on the outside to push on the window especially when you get to the end. 

 

 

Any Pointers on getting them in.

Yes, cornering performance will go way up. So will fuel economy. Win-win scenario.
