Are you kidding me! Dude...i tried being civil and play the apologetic role,( im sorry, im new here, please, i only had my 810 for 2 years. Only my first time doing engine work... Blah blah blah)...but really man, your just a fucking buzzkill...whats wrong with you? Are you a police officer or BLM agent? Maybe just a tree hugger crying for cleaner earth...whatever it is, get off my case. Cars are for driving..not whining about DMV rules, or BAR regulations... Post something helpful maybe.,
No different than a warning about fines for not wearing a seat belt. The next inspection will not pass visual or emissions. That's a lot of work and investment to be pulled off the road later. Then the car sold. Not a po po, BLM (whatever that is) tree hugger, with the DMV or BAR agent. I'm more interested in keeping your 810 on the road than you think. If you want to drive it, be smart about it. Being more aware of potential problems, is being helpful.

Hey, I understand skirting the law and getting around stuff, but older now and head covered with bumps. The pick up may be closer to the front but still on the right side to feed into the oil pump gallery, but be sure to support it to a main bearing cap. The 720 engine oil pick up has a support strut that uses the main bearing bolt to hold it.
That compression fitting doesn't have a nylon seal does it?

The things in common between the L24 and the L28 is the oil pan and the pickup tube. Using the L24 dipstick??????
Drain the oil and refill with exactly 4 quarts or whatever is recommended. Check the dipstick. Is it on the full line or below? If below you are over filling it.

I know that you know how to change oil. My concern is that it's over full. Because of the L24 pan on an L28 and the two possible dipsticks the mark on the stick being used may be wrong. Only way to check or be positive is to drain and refill with a known correct amount. Then confirm or mark a new full line on the dipstick.
All engines have some blow-by. If your crankshaft is spinning in the oil, it will splash up onto a fog of oil droplets and simply over power the screens on the block vent or the valve cover.
This is an easy check that costs nothing to do.

Check again. Never heard of a Datsun taking 6 quarts. Even the six cylinder is usually 4. HRH... Matt would know for sure.
