thanks for fixing the pic's dave, my measurements indicate otherwise as to fit on the right side mount & cross member standoff.

I think the A15 from the back of block to mount is about 8", with the A12 the distance is more like 9.5" - meaning center of mount hole to back edge of block and sandwich plate between engine & trans.

that pushes the mount farther towards the core support by about 1.5", only thing I can think of is making the adapter plate longer that the A15 is using. That s why I was asking about cross members, I always thought it was a stock 73 cross member...

Hey Dave , I knew it was just early and late. for most car mfg-erís you can break down the SN and VIN to glean lots of data about them. There was one image I ran across of the trans ID #íís brokendown.

I thought maybe the serial number would tell me the exact age of the block. Not critical just curious. Mines definitely the early one, Front distributor, stepped motor mount boss and fitting into late 1973 crossmember with short left mount boss.

I did try the direct link, it doesnít seem using the preview button lets you see pics in post first either. The frustration with picís is both having to preload them into an off-site host (photobucket) vs already saved on my computers HD plus resize to fit 1200 site posting . And then PB wants you to pay to save pics .

MANY site have simple, direct load to the post features . As a real estate broker the Seattle MLS allows me to highlight and upload 50 pics at a time to a listing-no long way round method there . Obviously a better funded site then 1200 but the ideas the same,
Seems there has to be a better way....

And No disrespect for the Admins who run the site , appreciate them and the site being here, thanks!

Side note - I REALLY hate how the posting of pic's is done on this site. Using Photobucket for years for off site storage but there's no direct cut & paste from my computer storage or from a phone thats not 7 steps for posting pic's....that Im aware of.

There's got to be a better way......

is the URL post button above the only pic post option?

I know, Im whining - wah wah wah

So Im sh*tcanning my A15 thats been in the car since I built it (flattening cam lobe issues) built an early A12 "race" motor I had laying around - literally! and am looking at the engine mounts - looks to me to be a later crossmember with the LH short mount boss.

A15 in car

I know the RH side motor mount needs a longer plate to mate up to the bracket on the engine but what about the left side? It doesn't really look like it lines up , left side is the shorter boss on the Xmember. were the really early A12 Xmembers on the RH side canted towards the front of the car?

Also wondered if theres a SN breakdown to ID exact age of motor, cant find it in the Wiki..

Thoughts??

thanks!

Wasn't attempting to discredit, apologies if thats how it came across - just saw it again trolling for Datsun stuff on CL. & was sharing the love :)

Maybe?? holler at the car lot to stop advertising your car or at lease say "SOLD" across the ad. Enjoy it, looked like a cool ride and other that Davids?? in Canada haven't ever seen one.

Are you trying to find the static compression ratio of your engine build? If so my recent experience on my A12 proved the numbers in the wiki incorrect for CCing a cylinder head. A brand new NOS H72 head I have never milled, never on a motor, never built worked out to 41 ccís .

I think the wiki says 25 to 30 mL so I found relying on that info completely inaccurate for figuring out the compression ratio of this motor. Best to physically see the piston in the block and the head individually.

As an example the H 72 head Iím using is 25 mL and itís been milled substantially, to the point where I need to use index washers on the spark plugs to clearance the piston tops as theyíre forged And actually stand above the deck.

Overall my point is just do it physically so you know with certainty what it is youíre putting together.

Good luck!

was the "Volts" one a digital display? it looks like the word volt is done in that old plastic tape with the raised white letters...
