Hey guys thought i'd share with you guys and to log this build/story for myself. Probably should have started this thread earlier in the build but i'll cover my bases. Rebuilding the engine and refreshing the engine bay. And some exterior mods/additions that probably won't be everyone's cup of tea but it's something different. Special thanks to Mike and Hainz for helping me diagnose the bad engine. 
 
Here is a bad photoshop of my vision for the car.

Got this car for $300! about a year and a half ago from this really nice older gentleman. Heres how it looked when i got it.

Probably the sketchiest ride driving this thing home. Brakes could just barely hold me stopped on a hill.
I almost made it all the way home before the carb gave out and wouldn't stop idling at 3k, had to turn the car off at stops because the brakes were so bad the
engine revving high would push me into the street!

Then i drove it like this for about 6 months with a new weber. With cut springs and 3" lowering blocks, rear bottoms out of every bump its great.

Had to also reseal the window. When i would turn on my fan and use my window washer fluid it would seep through the bottom of the window and blow bubbles at me haha

Then it started puking oil into the cylinders due to worn rings, after firing hella loud, and blowing big oil clouds. Also low compression.

Was going to get a doner engine to rebuild on the side but this and a junk crank was found in it, lesson learned here haha.

33994818194_28111eeb2e_b.jpg

Started rebuilding the engine.

34028238943_95a7825584_b.jpg

Original u67 head was cracked! bought 2 others heads and they were both milled and wrapped to hell so no luck!

34674506292_003d62fbd9_k.jpg

Then i found this rebuilt engine with a closed chamber a87! on craigslist, so that's going in it right now so i dont have 2 projects of rebuilding the engine and the bay at the same time.
with nismo gasket and ARP headstuds

And that where i'm at as of today.

Had some paint left over, if anyone has any bright ideas to make these look as shitty and faded as the rest of the car let me know haha

34452081530_7920925e2f_k.jpg

Also plasti-dipped the rims and got some questionable lug nuts.

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!"

Scotch-Brite pads do a good job, and don't take off as much paint. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

I very carefully removed all those pieces one at a time. Your way looks easier.   ^_^

Got the 5 speed in. Ignor the hole where the gas pedal should be haha.
35699442811_4563e3516c_c.jpg

Made a pair of T.I.T.s (transmission installation tool) A very generous gentleman in AZ who has been helping me gave me this idea.

Grabbed some old head bolts. Cut about 3.5in ground them down and added a slit for a screwdriver.

Put these in the most bottom 2 holes in the block to help slip the trans in place.
Once you have those 2 T.I.Ts in there's no other place for the input shaft to go than in the pilot bushing
