#1546971 L20B big bore with low end torque

Posted by datzenmike on Yesterday, 06:39 PM

Well you have to bore from 85mm to 89mm first. Getting scary close to the limit.. but doable.

 

If using an L20B/crank and a rod that will work, you basically have a 2139cc engine. Theoretically good for high revving with lots of other add on's, but in reality you have only gained 188cc above the stock engine displacement.

 

If you can find a Z22 crank you can keep and use the L20B rods that you already have and this jumps the displacement to 2288, or a 337cc increase, but the big deal is the longer stroke crankshaft. This will add lots of leverage and low speed torque, which is what you asked for, for every day street use..

'Datsun' and 'thrifty' are not mutually exclusive. Look up cheap in a thesaurus an the fourth synonym down is Datsun (owner).

Way to keep an open mind.

 

If left ajar you never know what evil will crawl in.

ha-ha-haaa_o_253804.gif and all your finger in eye arguing about shit that ain't going to change. Talking about opinions.  "You make a good point, and I've changed my stance on gun control." said no one ever. You can pry my opinion from my cold dead hands.

I appreciate effective, ingenious home made solutions to get the job done. Likewise there must be lots of people with fat wallets that can afford to pay for work, fine or otherwise, but not because they appreciate it, simply because they can. Where ever possible do your own work and only pay for that which you haven't learned to do. It's a Datsun not a Ferrari.




#1546710 What to coat a 510 exhaust manifold with?

Posted by datzenmike on 18 February 2018 - 07:36 AM

I think there are 'do it yourself' ceramic coatings.... Then there's high heat paints.




#1546674 Where to buy.84 Hitachi carb parts

I'm sure it will work, any choke heater will work but there must be dozens of them for differing uses. They are designed to apply the choke when cold and then warm up electrically in up to 8-10 minutes and turn the choke off. Naturally emissions is extremely high during the warm up so they must speed the engine warm up, shut off ASAP but not too soon.




#1546672 Timing chain

Cheap easy fix. At least it wasn't a timing chain wedge left in.

People always use the wrong terminology for things. Calling a single cast iron exhaust manifold “headers” for example. There are some “correct” terms for things, but are words I don’t like to use, like subframe. People like to use buzzwords because they sound cool, or just don’t know any better, which is usually the case.

 

Headers? Not the wrong terminology just plural when it should be singular. Or are you saying that if it's cast it's not a header? I disagree. Is one of these less of a header?

Subframe is less than a 'full frame' or perhaps 'under frame' either way I know exactly what is meant. So what is the correct term for 'subframe'? I may have heard of it too.

 When you can't tell what it is, you've gone way too far. 

 

 

Reminds me of NASCAR. Do anything on those 'things' have a GM, Ford or whatever? part number on them?

 

Oh, the windshield and the door handles are Skyline? Did not know that.

$200 for a stock down pipe is retarded. Might as well buy the proper header for it.

Widebody sucks dicks. If you can't compete with your tires under the fenders or with flairs then move onto another make of car. I mean who would notice you changed cars it you painted it the same colors anyway?

 

WTF is this thing anyway? Bozoko? No longer recognizable. Has to have NISSAN on the front for fans to know.
