#1504179 Door Lock Issue

Posted by shacks510 on 18 July 2017 - 05:58 PM

Check the plastic keeper thingy that holds the bar into the swinging arm on the lock. They wear out. I bought some universal ones and put a zip tie on the back side of the keeper to keep it from sliding out since it was much longer than stock. I used a rubber grommet for 3 years until it wore out. Put a new plastic keeper and it's never locked so nicely. You shouldn't need to touch the plastic adjuster since it doesn't actually move.

Talk to your neighbors and see if they have cameras.

#1500872 L16 to L20b parts compatible?

Posted by shacks510 on 03 July 2017 - 08:20 PM

L16/18 crank mains are 55mm, L20B is 60mm. Caps will not interchange. You might have to line bore if you mix match.

Most hardware will interchange; the L20B has an extra bolt on each side at the top of the timing cover for the taller block, has three 10mm bolts for the alt bracket vs. two 8mm on the L16 (depending on year L16). Also, L20B uses a 6 bolt flywheel, not 5. ZX turbo head bolts are also a better option if you're buying new.

... but if someone put a 510 front end on a hako everyone would lose their fucking minds.

As if the hako fanboys didn't already think the 510 "looks like a skyline"

Ha ha ha oddly enough neither of my datsuns have radios in them....Something I need to fix!


I think that's worse than having engine/road noise. I haven't had a working setup for 2 years and it's miserable. Something in the background is nice.

It's a rarity I spot a Datsun while in the Datsun. Dude was like 70 and didn't even care.

#1493794 L16 block L20 head?

Posted by shacks510 on 04 June 2017 - 01:44 PM

The U67 and the W58 heads need a cylinder that is at least 82.55mm wide for the valves to fit down into. The L16 is 83mm. This is very close and the cylinder will be shrouding them at the least.


Yup. The edges of the bores had knicks where the intake valves hit. Good thing they didn't bend.


#1493721 L16 block L20 head?

Posted by shacks510 on 04 June 2017 - 07:57 AM

I wouldnt do it unless you need to get back on the road. I had an L16/U67 and it was a dog. No power. Super tall tires and over carbureted didn't help either. Good enough to get around, that's about it.

Glass overflow bottles shattering isn't unheard of. I'm surprised you pass tech with it. I've been using a plastic bottle for over a year because I'm too cheap to spend $60 on something nice, and too lazy to make something.
