The I'm a Datsun collector thing struck me immediately as a pompous attempt to justify a price the seller knows is ridiculous.

That said the car is nice.

Cheap is the operative word.

Fitting an A14 crank while not expensive is also not cheap.

Search for 76mm A14 pistons or the 75mm A12A pistons, then install whatever you find. Having the block bored is cheap enough.

Next port the head; you can do this yourself with nothing more than dremel. Concentrate on the bowl area of the ports and the valve seat. The seat actually protrudes into the port limiting flow.

After that find a used Weber 32/36 DGEV carb.

You can also use the GX head gasket to up the compression slightly.

All of the above will net you a out 12-15hp and set you back $450 - $500.

Bummer about the car but thankfully you walked away from it.

I would try buying a different brand and part number.

I know I've mixed and match before without issue.

Yes those are the measurements I had.

On my coupe the axle will bottom before the shock does. Note I'm using an H190 rear end.

I think I've got the measurements written down somewhere. I'll try and dig them out and post them up.

Well I suppose it's no different than any other modern drive line conversion.

Dave the shocks have the standard position at the top but the lower mount has been mover per the competition suspension manual. I'm using Koni part# 80-1551

So I went with Koni Classics on the coupe. I had to do a bunch of comparisons; I used Rockauto's website to double check the measurements. I ended up with shines for an Alfa Spider.

A total what might have been. 1600lb car with 120hp in the 79s would have been a rocket.
