Guys my A14 I got on the road a few weeks ago Its a mild rebuild
1ml over size pistons and a good cam. I was told to do a bit of hill work to labour bit to bed rings in.
Well I did a fair bit of that. But when I 1st had it going we found my elec dizzy to be no good.
So went back to points.
But my 1st drive of it was running Like #OOPS# like it was on 3.
And that was over 100k,s round trip to get back to Mechanic.
After that still did run real good for a while till after I had
Done the 1st 1000ks and did the big svs. Tuned it a bit better but still pined a little under Load..
So my fear is that One I gave it a bit of a rough time reving to high in the 1st 500 and I didn't do the uneven speed's on high way Driving as some one else told me about that NOT MY MECHANIC?
So Its Still not 100% But a lot better after buying new carbie..
I would hope not have to Pull it down again
Or maybe I could use my Holly fuel pump and get it tuned on the dyno? I just Don't want to #OOPS# it up it has good power after 3000 revs

You consistanly come on here and complain about having a crap tune

Get a new mechanic or stop f'n around with it or get efi or something. Whatever you have been doing isnt working!

The run-in method is not so important nowadays. Back in the 1970s it was important but with today's oils and metals, it doesn't matter much.

What problem are you having? If it is just "pinging" then it is a simple distributor timing adjustment.

Driving the engine like a sissy is what causes damage while running in.

Yes, driving it easy after a engine rebuild increases the chance that the rings will never properly seat, resulting in oil use/smoking forever after. Driving it normal will be OK.

Heavy oils like 10W-40 or even 20W-50 are perfectly fine because of the multiweight rating. It'll flow like a thin 10 weight or 20 weight at temperatures below freezing, yet flows normal even at 100C+ degree engine temperature. Nissan recommends both for the A14 (see chart).

Yes, a good running carburetor will make the car a joy to drive once again.
