Feels nice to drive the car again. Got a super tiny coolant leak but whatever. Gotta run a switch to my fogs and a hazard.

I’ve also gotta get rubbers for the windows.
Roll fenders cuz I’m rubbing like crazy with 4 people in the car.

I got my hydro ebrake in and it looks great. Super stoked about all of that.

Video to come :)

Surely you don't mean the stock Datsun air cleaner. You're speaking about the "stock" Weber air cleaner, right?

Yes. Sorry. I should have been more clear.

#1521897 Electric cooling fans - Two pullers or One pusher?

Posted by DatMo on 06 October 2017 - 09:48 AM

I'm running 2 push fans in the front of the car and one push fan because of the lack of space I have.

I don't have any pictures of my car at the moment but my car hasn't been over heating and I spent a total of about 50?

If the strut bar is already there then leave it.


That's exactly what I'm saying lol. I just don't have a filter so i wasnt sure the stock one would fit before I purchased one.

I redid a lot of the wiring in the car because I wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna have a fire hazard and was really scared about my work prior. Now I've got it all buttoned up and done correctly :)

I sourced a smaller coil mount so I can use that. I start the car up every morning and thankfully, the radiator doesn't leak but I still haven't gotten under the car to check that rear main seal. My diff is also leaking but I don't suspect the bolt.
As far as the clutch adjustment, I'll be getting to that this weekend. Unfortunately, the spal fan is still a bit louder than I'd like but engine is cool so I can't object.

I'm gonna adjust the brakes a bit more because I'd like more of a response because they only work after being just about fully applied.

All lights etc work EXCEPT hazards because I'm not sure how to wire it from ez wiring harness. It's a bitch.

I drove it just a little bit and I'm running no choke because one, I'm in California and two, I can't find one that'll work well with the choke being a front-car pull type.

As far as idle, I don't mess with the carbs too much but just idle adjustment. I think I need to move my distributor a bit? Which way lowers idle? And I have a timing gun. Anyone know what it's supposed to be at?

I almost forgot! Here's some pics of my babies!
This is somewhat how my choke was setup but I took it off and bent that piece in the process. Cheap shit.

#1474335 Dellortos dhla linkage

Posted by DatMo on 25 March 2017 - 02:22 PM

With that being said, I found this kit online which would be best.
I've read multiple times that dellortos and webers are very similar so I'm thinking this would work for my situation and it's $109 complete which isn't bad.

Once again, thanks for the input.

Also I'm baffled with my linkage situation. So I handed a complete cannon manifold linkage setup to chuck but he said I was still missing some pieces because dellortos are a bit different. He said I was missing a piece for the idle adjustment. However with that said, does anyone know what I'm missing and where I could possibly get it? Here's what he's put on and it is what I had given him. I figured idle adjustment was set from those threads?


Also chucks a great guy. A bit pricey but great guy and definetly helping.
