Mmm, I'm guessing his other project is a Zed (240/260Z).

What do you think DD?

Well that was a nasty surprise David. Glad no serious injuries to you or the ute.
Obviously pressure had built up in the cooling system and it found the weakest link...the old original heater hose.

Those cylinder readings have a fair bit of variance, but hopefully it's not a head gasket.
Have you checked the thermostat yet. Boil her up in a pot and make sure it's opening up.

That's great news. Don't stay around the coast to long, otherwise it'll start rusting as Datsuns do.

Hey, now your getting some road miles up you can let us in on how well she handles with the S13 front end.

Enjoy 😎

Fastest Car - Netflix

I've been watching an 8 part series on Netflix called 'Fastest Car'. It puts 3 sleeper cars up against 1 super car in each episode. Shows a bit of a background on each of the drivers and their cars in the days leading up to the race. On race day all four cars line up on an old airfield runway and fastest car wins.

I just watched episode 7 last night titled 'electric Vs gas' and to my surprise the electric car was the infamous Datsun 1200 known as 'White Zombie'. It was up against an RX2, a large diesel Dodge Ram truck and a Lamborghini Aventador.

Don't want to spoil it for anyone that watches, but the outcome left me speechless.

Definitely worth a watch, if you've got Netflix.

Try Nigel at 'The Carby Shop' in Wantirna Sth (ph. 9801-3954).
He rebuilt mine and often tuned them when I used to work around the corner. Mine are on an A15 too.
This guy is very knowledgeable and helpful.

Thanks Mic I may well decide to upgrade in the future.

Right hand side now also done. But ran out of time/light to bleed them up.
Will probably have to wait for the weekend now.....fingers crossed!

Went to ABS Brakes today and ended up buying the last two seal kits they had. Took a bit of measuring and searching to work out what seal kit I needed.

Should anyone else be rebuilding the small A10 Stanza caliper you should try and find the Protex K1184S. Seal kit.

Left caliper has been stripped down painted and re-assembled. One more to go 😅

I've found 3 different rotor sizes in my searches, 232 (on SSS), 244 and the 245mm.

I remember when I bought the Stanza off a work colleague (just for the struts and brakes) that I found it had 2 different size rotors on the front and the brake pads on one side weren't fully contacting the rotor...so probably had one of the 232mm rotors on it. I bought one new rotor to match them. Will measure them up tomorrow, but hopefully they are both 245mm.

Thanks David. Yes the ones I have are the ones with the small rectangular style pad.

If the piston and bore are serviceable and I can get a seal kit for them I might just rebuild them. Otherwise the Girlocks would be an improvement. I'll have to measure my rotors as well, as I think there were three different rotor sizes on the Stanzas in Aus.
