You must put the long bolt in the correct hole as this is the oil supply gallery for the rockers. no lubrication = disaster. The long bolt from memory has a letter "T" stamped on it or "13". In addition I think the side (right-left) in which the bolt screwed into could be different, depending which evolution of the A-series engine you have.
It is easy to pick, as the head bolt hole threads in the block start more or less at deck height, except for the hole that the long bolt belongs, as the threads start approx 7-10mm below deck height.

As for the mechanic in tassie, sounds like he is a ruthless bastard, only interested in the dollar.

if it is any help i have a magazine article on a factory preped coupe that was run at bathurst. I will dig it out this weekend and scan it. It was (from memory) baby poo brown with two black strips on the bonnet with "datsun logo" on it. Also i think it was based on the A12 donk.

You are definately on the money 1200rally. You want to achieve a shorter gear change by moving the fulcrum point on the gear lever.

In my opinion there is no advantage gained by shortening the length of the stick, as the end result is that the driver will have to reach further from the steering wheel to change gears. Shortening the stick could considered a quick fix.
Ideally you would want the the gear stick close to the steering wheel ( to reduce time taken to move your hand) in congunction with a short "throw" between gears (achieved but moving the fulcrum point of the gear stick.

Just my thoughts.

it all depends how much cam lift you have, as well as valve duration. Most of the motors i have assembled, i have had to put fly cuts in the piston tops.

Some of the little dattos were fitted with Borg Warner diffs from the factory, which have a diff cover plate at the rear.. They dont have pull out centres ( from the front) rather the gears are assembled from the back via the cover plate.

I have had great success using top and bottom tanks (the plumbing is in the right place) from a holden gemini and had a 3 core, core fitted. The standard 2 core works quite will though.

take the bearing out go to a bearing supplier (cbc bearings maybe) there are lots out there. If you give them a sample they should be able to match it up with something.
