280Z engine timing issue

18 June 2018 - 06:58 PM

I'm sorry for posting this as I know it's been covered a bunch! I have some pictures here of the crank on TDC along with the cam. My question is, is my distributor pointing to the right spot? The rotor seems like it points a little before #1 and I was wanting a second opinion! Also the reason it all came apart is the notorious timing chain tensioner :) but I do have the timing chain tool now! So I had to take the chain and oil pump out and I followed FSM putting it back together. The car runs but not anything like it should! 

Roadster KA24E Swap Trans questions

26 April 2018 - 05:28 PM

I'm in the process of swapping a 95 truck KA24E engine and 5spd trans with it into my 67 roadster. I see that I'll need to make engine mounts also the tranny doesn't clear the trans tunnel and trans cross member, do people usually cut the top of the trans tunnel to fit the shifter etc.?
Lastly I have a drive shaft from the truck and one for the roadster, it doesn't look like either will work without mod. What do people usually go with there?
I have searched all over for build threads and such but haven't had much luck with this specific swap.

Datsun 620 ultimate SS exhaust

11 January 2018 - 10:21 PM

Recently finished my 77 Datsun 620 custom SS exhaust. Most of it was tight welded but the whole system (welds, tubing, muffler and hangers are stainless steel) made by a co-worker and I. Flange was also machined by me with a harbor freight drill press!
2.5in the whole way and 1.75 2 out collectors








New alternator, car doesn't shut off

25 November 2017 - 09:47 AM

1977 Datsun 620 I know this has been talked about before and the typical answer was "switch back to stick alt". Well my stock one fried! I got an AC Delco one that fit in perfect and had all the same connections. So of course the car won't shut off with the key but if I disconnect that T connector it shuts off but of course stops charging. Is there any sort of fix for this, as I know it's internally regulated?

Datsun 620 With Z24 Block and L16 Head Swap

07 November 2017 - 08:00 AM

Hello all, I just finished my 1977 Datsun 620 engine swap from an L20B to a Z24 with a L16 head! I want to make a "build thread" with picture thumbnails but can't seem to figure out how others take the image link and get it to pop a thumbnail up!? Anyways here's a few pictures of the process and once someone helps me with the way to get the thumbnails to pop up on here I'll go into details below!
