Aluminium wheel nuts.
Helium in the tyres.
I have a factory dash frame has had many holes drilled in it.
Did you mention fibreglass front guards?
Remove your number plate lights.
Drill out spotwelds on the spare wheel hold down anchor.
Remove jack mounting brackets.

It will probably be alright.

Might just be a trick of the light, but the honing marks look quite horizontal?

The number on the rego papers was the same as the one on the dymo label over the aluminium tag.
The number under it has no record of ever being rego'd in NZ.

So a guy here in NZ has been screwed over by the transport governing body. His car was at a shop getting some work done. An NZTA inspector was at the shop. They saw there was a label on the body tag over the chassis number. The car was suposedly a very low owner very original B110 sedan.
The engine number of the motor in the car, matches the tag. The number under the (old) stuck on label was looked up by the local constabulary, and shown to have never been registered in NZ.
Either way, the car has been ordered off the road, untill proof of ID can be found. As the NZ made cars had no stamped chassis number, he's kinda screwed.
He's asked the NZ datsun club for help. We're going to write a lEtter to the NZTA on his behalf. Given the way the car market was here way way back then, the car might have been imported from Aussie. (People bought car in to hear from all over the place back in the day.

So any of you Aussie blokes able to throw up a pic of two of B110 body tags? Either cars you've wrecked out, or remove your chassis number from the pic if it might create a security issue for you?

Thanks.

Lash caps also correct the valve geometry too. With big lift the rocker arm sweep goes past what is really happy.

I'm quite sure that my front stay is too long too.
BUt I've had lots of A14s, A15's, over the years. And had many cars/motors which were sans air cleaner assemblies at the time of acquistion too.

Thanks David!
As always you're the man!
I'm not really sure what model cars any of my parts came off. My Air filter housing is I think B310. And the longblock is I think B210. BUt the manifolds are just some I found in my (extensive) junkpile.
My Air filter housing has a flat on one side where the bracket with two bolts attaches.
Of the two front stays I have, neither of them then correct "helix" to make them fit.

Might have to have another ferret through my spares/junk to see if I can find any others. (Before I start trying to modify what I've got.
