As many times as I have pulled transmissions lately(and still more to go), I will be looking for some head bolts this weekend also.

 

 

Brilliant, I say.

 

EDIT: This will not work for A motor type transmissions...too large.  However, a push rod from a slave cylinder looks as though it will.  The threaded end will go into the block.  Just need to notch for the screwdriver.  Now if I could just find another push rod.

Return spring bracket. Apparently the only difference between the auto and manual pedal box is a tab for the return spring.
Found this angled piece and bent it to fit, works great! way better than tearing the inside of the car apart for a different pedal box
Got the pedals from my spare 710 goon.

New shifter bushings. Found these at the hardware store, didn't have to pay an arm and leg for em too!

Modified, not pretty but it works.

Cleaned up the bay.
I put the light wires on the outside of the bay. Let me know it this is a bad idea, not sure how hot the lights get. looks simpler this way.
No no more charcoal canister.
No air pump filter bracket, removed the spot welds and bondoed over.

Relocated the hood latch under the fender and around to the front with this trick bracket.

Where are you guys connecting your brake booster. I know the original was on the 4th runner with the old smog intake.
But that connection has like 3 other ports on it and it's just too busy looking for me.

Anyone got another suggestion. Like something on the 4th runner with a the single port, sized for the vacuum line?
or something hooked up to the back of the intake.

What's a brake booster? Sounds luxurious.


Really liking this car.



It looks like you can just find a fitting that fits that intake hole for the brake vacuum source.

Haha thanks man. Guess I gotta go to a better hardware store to find a fitting. Always hard finding hardware for custom needs.

Nice work!

 

Did you find a new window seal or just reinstall and add silicone or similar?  I wouldn't object to doing a 610 myself, but I haven't seen any rubber offered for them anywhere.  (I haven't looked terribly hard, though..)

 

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

I just used silicone on the top side, but it's the silicone they actually use on windows. Works great so far no more leaks.
and on the bottom side i used regular weather striping silicone.
Haven't tested the bottom yet but i'm hoping i won't get bubbles coming in from the bottom of the window when i use the washer fluid and fan at the same time haha.

There was a rust hole at the top of the window and i just stuffed it full of silicone, neutralized the rust and seal it up haha.

It's been awhile but heres an update.

Got the car to run but only on 3 cylinders. Zero compression. Thought it was the rings because the head seemed rebuilt, so i put if off for awhile.
Turns out the intake valve was stuck open and head was warped. Gotta love fucking craigslist. Waiting on the head from the shop now.

Couple cans of fabric paint goes a longggg way!

Custom shift knob i made. Its perfect, orange car and 5 speed.

Shift boot is from a 280zx and the plate holding it down was salvaged from a rusty 280zx fender.
Had to be suuuper careful with the screw placement because of the brake lines under the trans tunnel.

Air shocks that are too tall for how low the car is! :(

Not sure yet Ted haven't had it moving on the ground. It switched into gears just fine in the air so here's hoping!

The bay restoration is inspirational.

Is that paint with hardener (iso's) or enamel or whatever that doesnt kill you?

It is unrethane paint. It's 1 step i believe so it doesn't require a clear coat and is apparently pretty strong. Good for engine bays. Plus the dry time is a little longer so it give/ a good amount to work time for beginners.

i WOULD MAKE SURE THE GAS PEDAL IS MORE TO THE RIGHT.

Most autopedals the brakes pedals are more left and then when a manual pedals install they move closer to the gaspedal and it will be a issue in a panic stop. Believe me.

 

as for the maniold port i seen alot of l16manifolds with a port attachement on there so it should be EZ to find. Even thought its the forth runner its all hooked up the the manifold pressure on all the cylinders unlike soem sidedraft type manifold were its actuall on the 4th runner and make a pulsating issue as it only on the 4th cylinder.

 

 

hopefully you have the correct T/O bearing & cllor for the clutch as its based on the clutch prssureplate/flywheel  and not the trans. set up. example  225mm L20 bolt use a 620 truck set up. If a 200mm nflywheel L20 6bolt use a 510 or Roadster setup.

 

 

for the stick shifter side plastic bushings One can use the Cryslers door hinge bushing for the trans shifter. I find soem plastic just dont last long and disinigrate. the HELP brand at O Rileys had a assorment of sizes in a pakage and I inserted then using a vice. the pin didnt go in but open them up with a drill bit till trans pin would fit.

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!"

Thanks for the insight Hainz! I can see how that would not be ideal!

I believe I have the correct t/o, collar, and flywheel clutch. I'll find out soon enough though haha.
tried the trans when it was running on 3 cylinder and on stands and it shifted into gears just fine and clutch disengaged so here's hoping.

good idea for the bushings as well thanks.
