#1519244 Turbo Coupe B310 with A15 engine, my first project

Posted by datsunfreak on Yesterday, 08:32 AM

I like this design. More torque and less heat transfer from exhaust to the intake plenum. 

 

I'm not sure how should I do the intake manifold, I made a quick 3D sketch about it, but not sure if I should just put the injectors on top of the flanges...

#1517848 Duncan's 71 "Oz" Goon

Posted by datsunfreak on 17 September 2017 - 02:05 PM

I'm wondering why I just didn't fill and delete the drains and covers.  Seems like they are totally unnecessary.  Didn't they put those on the 240z for just the first year only?

 

On the 240Z, yes only the Series 1 models had them on the hatch. And it wasn't deleted, it was just moved to the C-pillar. 

 

Their function is twofold. You need to allow escaping air at the rear of the vehicle for the "flow through ventilation" system to function properly. And it does help when closing the hatch rapidly for the rushing air to have somewhere to escape so it's easier to close. 

 

Every Datsun of the 70s had these somewhere on the rear 1/3 of the car.

As you may have noticed, it's fairly common to work on this every week for three months, then not touch it for three months...   ^_^

 

I was able to get an inline fuse wired in for the fuel pump relay, as well as get it back up on jack stands and the wheels off so I can put fluid in the transmission and bleed the brakes again. That should be coming fairly soon...

Installed an external vent for the fuel tank just above the filler. 21557633_1462229123856207_28653793053830

 

 

And Tim made a cool plate to cover the top of the fuel tank for easy access later.

#1517823 Going on Safari, DIY grill mods...

Posted by datsunfreak on 17 September 2017 - 12:12 PM

But what are the odds of finding those lights now?

 

This...

 

There are a number of aftermarket rectangular fog lights that i think would look just as good still available. Just googling rectangular fog light have a bunch of decent choices

 

Looking around I saw quite a few, so they are out there...

 

I started doing this a couple years ago and just never finished it. Glad to see it done and it looks good. Waitin to see it on thr car.

 

Terrible pic, because it's parked too close to another car, but I couldn't resist a test fit.

Make sure your grille mounting points are strong cuz of the added weight!

 

Yes sir. Thankfully 510 grill mounts are overbuilt for how light the grill is.

I see you went flush rather than have the lights protrude a little like the sss safari grill?

 

Yes sir. I feel like the Safari lights poke out just a little too much...

When you're considered cheap as a Datsun owner, by other Datsun owners, you know you're really cheap.  :lol:

 

Yes.  :rofl:

 

The weirdest coincidence: The cars with the ugliest stock bumpers, thus requiring spending a lot of money to get the cool Japanese bumpers, are bought up by the cheapest people.

Once you get the ride where you want it why would you need to adjust it? 

 

You change wheels and it rubs, you change wheels and the gap is too much, you want it lower for a show, you want it higher for a road trip, you've made changes and you need to corner-weight it again, you change springs for a race, you change springs to make it stiffer, you change springs to make it softer...

 

For someone like you, there is zero reason to have adjustable coilovers. That doesn't mean some of us have no reason to do it.   ^_^
