So just asking a question, you are complaining in the other thread about not having enough time to work on the grey truck and you buy this thing to add another problem in your life, while looks like spending all of your time on this truck yet you got a million holes in your other trucks fire wall.
This is a Jedi mind trick. U think I'm not doing but doing out of time but have time accomplish more then you know in less time
No, really I'm sort of at a stand still until I get my damn KA back from the machine shop. What is really left is paint 2 doors, touch up some spots and paint the front valance. But everyday I also do small things too. My in laws removed my drop dead date because they felt guilty a couple months ago when they need me to fill in for a driver for 6 weeks and that was also when my mom passed away.
So now I was told just get it done as fast as I can.

Pick up these today
Do I need to cut out the center bearing perch if I go with a 1 piece drive line and lowered.
Tomorrow should be a really big day. I hope I can get done what I have in mind. See this truck back together with motor and tranny installed.

I might not be able to save the OG hood. Might screw up most of the paint. Needs welding and most of the structure removed. Going to try, but as soon as the paint starts getting ruined going to stop and get the other hood ready for paint. I don't want to try to match the green. Probably be very difficult. So any suggestions? Black? White? Something else...
Body is just resting on frame. Needs to come off to lower the front. The threads are all chewed up on the bolts that hold the back of the torsion bars. I want to use an impact to take them off. So cab has to come off.

The 1 pc mikuni or the lesser Cannon manifold would be OK.
just so you can unbolt them as a whole unit when doing intake gaskets or pulling head off.
I too have this 2 pc manifold and they going to the scrapper!!!!
truck is looking good. I Love the white stripe.
I hated my Green 521 but the green will grow on you like moss

This project is about using up work I already completed and things already purchased. Hopefully there won't be a need to change intake gasket for a while since it is all new gaskets on the motor.

This one I will work on for 2 more days and stop for a little bit. My KA motor is finally done at the machine shop and I will pick up on Friday. So I can get back on the 69. I wanted to get this truck as far a long as possible this week.

The 1 pc intake manifold is great as you unbolt the whole unit and you dont have to re sync the carbs.

I got to say I'm having a hard time adjusting to datsun pricing. You guys are giving shit away. VWs pricing on parts has gone so far out of line I can't tell what is overpriced and what is a deal with these.
I had to piece together my notch. Got a lot of deals on parts from 2 friends in Sac that buy and sell parts for a living. I still have about $20k buying parts. It seems I could buy all the parts individually for this truck and maybe spend 2-3k.
Oh well it still is fun building these.
