It's always the mobile phone or it's user.

 

It was from my PC, nice try though.

#1570688 My Ratsun Datsun 521, now with L-20-B

Nice carb wrench. I made one for mine too, except I use the 12pt side, and ground both the thickness and diameter. The double bend is to clear the valve cover on the inner nuts.

I think gold would be cool with your blue truck. Gunmetal would be my second choice.

Ah, that’s right Dana Scribner. His other buddy with the roadster is Charlie. And there’s another Charlie out in the Springfield area. Unfortunately, no one ever gets together anymore.

That black roadster is a member of DRONE, named Charlie. He’s from Tyngsboro. Nice guy. He’s at Japanese car day every year.

That orange Z is there every year as well. Was it for sale? There’s one for sale in Newton for like $26k.

I went to a meet last night and this showed up. Needs a lot of work though.

Some of the crap people say on here is just absurd. Mike, did you ford the river today with your Conestoga wagon, or did you die of dysentery?

I left my wife a note earlier. It took me forever to drag a big stone tablet into the kitchen, and then I lost my chisel somewhere in the cave out back.

Clocking doesn't matter, but, in the event it changes anything, I would think having it offset closer to the head would make it open sooner. I run a 160 in my roadster, and it takes a while to warm up, but it's not as hot here in New England (typically) as where you are. Granted, they say the high on Monday is 94.

Is this update complete ? i'm wondering if my computer is jacked up or it's this website.I click on a topic and it doesn't want to load the page.I'm only having this problem here.

 

Happens on both my PC's and my phone. Super slow loading topics. 




#1569662 Tranny Fluid - Your opinion

Posted by mainer311 on 11 June 2018 - 06:32 PM

I run Nissan genuine GL-4 manual transmission fluid. Figured they would know what works best.


#1569155 521 Vent window rubbers (I have been raw dogging it)

Posted by mainer311 on 07 June 2018 - 10:48 AM

Yes, his second picture. I don't have anything around the edges (same as his first pic). 

 

The c-channel felt is glued in, but mine is practically falling out. I considered gluing in the top half, rolling the window up, and then doing as much as I can on the bottom half, but I don't know how much can be reached through the inside holes.

Mine has felt inside and out. Looks the same on both sides.

 

My felt c-channel is f'n terrible and falling out. I'm scared to death about disassembling the front doors, but I don't see any other way to go about replacing it.




#1569099 Just bought a 521

I received my 16’ roll of Nissan window felt tonight. Stuff is legit! And I should have enough left over to do the roadster!
