In Topic: Shawn's 521

Today, 02:50 AM

Shawn Came over today and did some work for me on my 520.

 

His 521 also received some love, OEM NOS Nissan back glass and new rubber seal.  I also hooked him up with a repalcement speedo, a better set of 720 oil pressure and volt  gages, and a 720 1 piece drive line.

 

I will post pictures of Shawn's truck later PhotoBucket id doing maintenance at this time.

I have been saving every part taken off, every extra part that came with the car and all the parts I've purchased, even if it is newer metric stuff that I won't be using. I think I am up to 3 cracked up exhaust manifolds. :lol:

 

 

 

 

 

 

They will be non vented. Not sure if they will work with 14"s but I think if the fronts do the rears might. Maybe they will let me take a wheel into picknpull :lol: 

Trying for part parity, if all the brake parts (except that tiny master) come from the same car ordering replacement stuff is easy.

Come on Redeye you want ease of ordering parts with a Datsun!!!  LOL

Things happened today in a good way.

 

Shawn came over and installed the torsion bars and adjusted them. He torqued and cotter pinned all the front end parts for me.  He sat it on the ground to check the heighth of the truck and al though I want it lower it is a good start.

 

He also primed and painted the gas tank.  If he can he will come back next weekend and install the tank and the make up and install fuel lines.  He is trying to have my 520 driveable in a couple months.

 

The hold up for this schedule on my part will be cash.  I need to get some things up for sale and sold to fund the progress.

Gene I thought you only stayed at Motel 6 unless someone else was paying the bill.

Thank you all for the kind words and the  suggestions.  My hand and shoulder surgeon I feel said it best, he said "I needed to stay away from myself!"  LOL  Well I am chasing away arthritis as best as I can.

 

Back yard is mowed and the ficus tre is cut down to the stump and loaded on my truck for a eely dump run.   Here the kids do not mow lawns they do not get off the couch.

 

I am going to try to get the torsion bars in my 520 in the next few weeks. I also need to mount the fuel tank. If I am going to hurt myself again I might as well do it doing something I enjoy doing.
