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!


Datsun 620 Engine Swap Clearance

11 August 2017 - 08:47 PM

Hello all, I posted before about the Z24 block with L16 head and Mikunis engine build. I finally got it and so far everything has gone together good. I'm having some clearance issues though that I was wondering for some advice.

One is the Mikuni velocity stacks won't clear the brake booster and the guy before me said he ran a single cylinder W/ no brake booster?

Two is the steering linkage is hitting the oil pan slightly. Not too sure how to handle this one? Dent oil pan some? Or should I swap it.

Third is cross member hitting oil pan a decent amount (can't lower engine all the way on to passenger side engine mount). I do work at a Fab shop so if you all have suggestions on cutting and welding?

PS: Motor was built about 10-13 years ago by a machinist who raced 510's and his main car it was built for was too Rusty and beat up for it to go in. Was built but never ran so hopefully you all will see video soon, I got alot of extras with it such as a more mild cam, a huge jetting kit for the Mikunis, extra 5spd trans, ect.

Datsun 620 High Comp Engine Swap

20 June 2017 - 08:10 PM

So I'm going to be buying an engine and trans for a nice price soon. The setup is L16 head with Z24 block with flat top pistons and a "mild" cam. Twin Mikuni carbs. 5 spd inlcuded. One of my main questions is what the compression ratio may be on this engine?
