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!"

Yup.. left rear lowest ,, right front highest to counter the dive as you hit brakes and go into corner.  if you go out to short track you will also notice every tire is a different size and tire pressure also..

   that's why there is also a rule how much camber the right front can have cuz guys will extend lower control arm and try to almost lay the right front tire parallel to the ground if there wasn't ..  :rofl:

 

Oh and Paradime,,, i think maybe you should stick with racing around closed Kmart parking lots. ;)

Here I am Carter!!   

 

Got a shot of Carter making his list.  We just gotta check it twice!  

 

50wpPH8.jpg

 

 

 

The rules state "factory fuel tank allowed as long as it's forward of the rear wheels and HAS NO LEAKS"  so we had to get the Mazda filler.

Our engine builders hard at work!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Building our "Stock" L18

The head is almost ready for Pruis Paul to send through his parts washer.   Thanks buddy!!!!!

Hmm maybe valve guid issues??? :)

Had high hopes for this aluminum rad.  Guess we'll have to dig deeper into our parts stashes.  We are going to install a heater for defrost and to help keep her running cool.  Hopefully that and the winter weather will keep our engine happy.

Muffler on it's way.  Requirement as well.  Must exit rear of the car too.

Well I tried to get us a fuel tank today.....  Pulled the tank from my coupe (my buddy Rich built a in tank pump setup in another tank for me) turns out it's been pull due to rust and had some sort of coating added to fix the rust issue.  The coating is coming off along with the rust underneath it.  Yuck.  I have one more tank that needs to be pulled and swapped in another car.  Hopefully its good.

Rub a dub dub L18 in the tub (or parts washer as it were)

 

Carter brought me the block, head and front cover for a good clean up.  It did'nt look too bad to start with, but it was time for some good old scrubbing.  We have an awesome labor saving parts washer at work for just this type of thing.

Forgot to take pics before cleaning, but it turned out pretty good!

No visible light under the straight edge here!  Nice to have a rare head that has not been warped.

I could see a little light between #3 and 4 cylinders.  My smallest feeler gauge would not fit at .002" so good to go here too. (non metric measurement just for Jeff)

Removed all the remaining gasket material and pressure washed the coolant passages as clean as possible. Blew out the oil passages and bolt holes so it should be ready to assemble.

 

Glad I could contribute to a fun project guys!

Did you guys ever put together a tank? I have one, so if you pay for shipping it's yours.

Jeff said we had to get over it and began to consult "How to Rebuild Your Nissan & Datsun OHC Engine by Tom Monroe" for correct procedures.

 

Now I think we finally know who *TOM is!  And of course we will be racing in Monroe.  Certainly this is a sign we are on the right (race) track.

First off thanks Paul for cleaning the motor for us!!!!  

 

 

 

So on Sunday I asked Kevin (head of all the racing events) if we need a door beam (i beam bolted to the outside of our car) since our car is an X cirlce track car it has an intense cage.  He said we are clear to run without a door bar!  Which is awesome!

 

Here is what our door bars look like.  O wait there is more!  A plate also welded over the top off all those bars.  Don't want anything sneaking through.

If you look close you can see the plate welded in.

Since we are building a race engine.  Gotta have the right book!

The guys almost got it back together, wow they are fast!  Glad to have them in the pits on race day :)

until next week.
