In Topic: Anyone got a 'how to install a weber 32/36?'

Today, 07:53 AM

Says it's public so idk. Also don't matter if the plate is flipped because the fuel inlet host the emissions crap so the weber won't even seat.   So I maybe reverse the plate and remove and somehow plug that round air thingy?!  


That rail to the left of the plate what is that?  And the bronze/copper round thing under the fuel inlet on the weber, what is that? 








You have the plate installed backwards.  See that tapered part, it goes outboard

When that happened to me, I found that the alternator had a short in it, it blew the main +12V line from the alt to the main harness.

Sorry to keep all of you in suspense.

So, this is the story.

Got the engine, rebuilt already by a shop from previous owner.

I got the oil pump from ebay.

I was the one that installed the engine and placed all other essential parts in order to have a working power plant.

This was my first time replacing an engine.

After this mishap, I did some research and talk to some more experienced Datsun guys.

Long story short.

I did not bled the oil pump.

I simply installed it and then install the filter.

For some of you that do not know (like me) you need to bleed the pump in order to get the oil pump gears lubricated. Since I failed to do so the gears simply got to hot to quick and ceased to move.

Causing the damage you see in the picture.

Very expensive learning lesson for me.

Now, I am opening the engine so I can inspect the damage.

since I run the engine 3 or 4 times for about 5 to 10 minutes each time.

And that's what happen.

Truly you mean PRIME the pump, not bleed!

This is not what I wanted to see.


Now, I need to replace my camshaft and oil pump.

Sad, sorry to see that...
