H beams are more efficient with material and hence lighter for the same strength. Any weight saved is less stress on everything at the same rpm. Reciprocating mass is the main source of stress in a piston motor.

I was under the impression the standard con rods are forged.

Shot peening introduces compression stress at the material surface and effectively increases the resistance to fatigue crack formation. That means you can stress them more (i.e. increase RPM) before running into fatigue issues. Forced induction has less of an impact on rods than rpm does.

Pretty sure it is possible to get a car like this registered. You'd need to meet the current ADRs for a one off build, the starting point would be talking to an Engineer that works in the area. You can register anything if you can meet the ADRs.

I love it. But there's a bit of me that thinks if you're going that far why not install the current 6.2L grunter? Unless of course it was done before they were available.

Got a bit of sun through the back windscreen over the years by the look of it. Who can tell at the front, they don't look like the original seats, at least not both of them!

My manifold didn't cover off the water ports. Maybe the dry type manifold is the same?

Yes you can, I tapped threads and screwed in set screws with some thread sealer on them.

Happy New Year!

I'll never be older than my Datsun. Maybe this year I'll get it out the shed once in a while.

Hopefully it's still around for my little one as soon as he's big enough to grasp a spanner! I was missing it.
