Also, I think Chris Lyons (clyons on here?) may have made that manifold, or at least he made some steam pipe ones much like that.

Misellaneous parts acquired.

Found out the hard way there is two different water pumps and fan spacers for the A series. Thanks for Peter Zekert coming to the rescue and later supplying me the right one.

Valve cover paint stripped.

Strut tower plates stripped and painted.

Also found out the USA spec fan belt did not fit.

I think you'll find that belt is probably for the early model A12 with the alternator mounted on the manifold side of the engine

Too expensive to bring my ute back over to the place where it originally came from

These images are about 6 months old. Almost caught up to present day.

What we have here as some goodies that I brought back with me from my last trip to Australia. Thanks to Chris from Datsun Parts Shop for providing me this replica stickers.

I also test fit my intake and exhaust and found there to be clearance issues. I will need to drill, cut, adjust.

Lastly I took off the flywheel using a homemade bent plate to expose the rear main seal and found that it looked in pretty bad shape and I replaced it. Also the photo with the bolt is a huge success!!!! I was able to clear the broken easy out drill bill, retap the engine block where the old bolt broke off. It was like in the movies where the person is defusing the explosive. I was sweating bullets!

By the way, there is a RH version and a LH version of those. If mixed up they will take some mods to fit

Photos of the Exedy heavy duty clutch install the aussies call it "Sports Tuff". Hopefully it will be tuff indeed.

Test fit of the Longchamps. Ran into clearance issues on the front. Wheels hit the front strut. I plan on using longer wheel studs and a hubcentric spacer. 10mm is all I need.

Front and rear brakes REPLACED with japanese fittings. I replaced every single line with a steel brake line with M10 FITTING!!!!! not the 3/8" USA fitting. Still mad about that.

Mishimoto radiator install coming soon.
