Yes, downdraft is easier to maintain. You set it and forget it. Much cheaper and practical for daily driver. Which 5 speed will you go with? Dog leg or a z?

You looking for downdraft or side drafts. For downdraft, 32/36 weber. I prefer manual choke. Check out pierce manifold, Gilroy,ca. Don't buy empi crap. Try to get one piece adapter.

Biggest and easiest swap is an oxymoron.  The biggest can be a 350 engine or more but the easiest is an L series.  With bigger engine more fabrication, mo money with L series cheaper less fabrication and maybe none. Besides your skill set, do you have a garage? tools? resources and how much are you willing to spend?  Do you have time?

It may be fun but you will mess up the geometry of the car with bigger engine and more weight.


#1565807 Truck not running right

Can you isolate gas line and get some clean gas in a can and run it and see if it dies. If it keeps on running then its your gas tank or bad gas.

#1565688 Valve adjustment??

Posted by racerx on 21 May 2018 - 07:17 AM

Also write this down on a big piece of paper, E I I E E I I E. As you adjust one valve cross it out. E is for exhaust and I is for intake and as mentioned earlier go on YouTube and see Datsun L series valve adjust, it makes more sense when you see it vs reading it. Good luck.

If you have never adjusted valves, may want to go on you tube, several valve adjust on datsun. Visual will give you a better idea.

You mean you can't loosen the nut that tightens or the one that adjust the valve?
