Well when your rear wheels steer, caster helps it return to center naturally. The more caster, the more it will track straighter

I was just giving praise to the new design as recently
looking at an old 4.3 next to a vq35 I was surprised
of the width of the VQ, its huge!!! and thats without
the headers needed to let it flow well.

Its not all about power as some respect needs to be
paid to the era of the car. I wouldnt put a chev engine
into a datsun when Nissan has so many choices.
Yet on the v6 side of things or v8 they are truly massive
units that would take up too much in the engine bay
where an A series usually sits there so sweetly.

No fan also of the older 4.3 and if it came to a datto
the vg33 would be hard to beat for that period look.

VG33 with supercharger sitting with low adapter with no
runners fed by a front sidedraft weber would be sweet.
Dizzie replaced with DIS ignition etc.

320hp / 300lbs tq atw wouldnt be difficult in stock form
running water injection. It really is the most important
engine Nissan made and received the least recognition.
When the DET and DETT version was released no car could
really beat the old 300Zs and even today the fastest in
a quarter is 6.1 seconds!!!! and much lighter than a 2jz.

I see caster wedges for rear leaf springs advertised sometimes, usually for 4x4s, but I see kits advised for RWD Datsuns too. Can anyone explain rear wheel caster to me?

nope, typical A series pump. i just now peeled back the screen & pressurized the pickup tube - finger over tube, air nozzle in other end - not an air leak in the tube welds...

Does it have a Competition Oil Pump? Those are not self priming per Nismo

it's definitely deeper but doesn't really matter, I dont want it lower than the Xmember.Going back to stock.

more concerned with figuring out why no oil pressure, seems odd that I cant get the pressure to comeup even when pickup submerged in oil, just cranked w/filter & sending unit port open & nada comes out.

I like they're homemade windage tray, somebody back in the day was trying hard to mod this motor. I think this thing has flat top pistons with a slight recess into the edge for the spark plugs as well, haven't pulled the head yet, I was hoping to run it on the stand first

That's odd, it looks no deeper than a stock 1200 pan

If it is deeper, when installed it will be lower than the rest of the 1200 underbody clearance and the crossmember will no longer act as a skid plate. Surely a wider sump is the better way to expand capacity?
