  1. Hello chris Im new to the forum I've been looking for help on how to do my wirirng for my sr20det to my 510 and I noticed that you might know something can you help?

    thanks man

    Luis

  2. cant find the "recent posts" link anywhere...

  3. Me again. Thanks for the inspiration anth! That thing looks wicked! Digging the gold meshies.... hmmm i wonder... gold on mine? Photoshop time... Plans are now to throw a stock SR at it. I might rebuild the old one as a little side project, but we will see what happens... Ive been looking around, and possibly getting one from a wrecker. Comes with 3months warranty... which is a plus. Or one of my friends friends just crashed his silvia, which he is now looking to sell. So i might buy it, and salvage the motor and all that, as well as the rear subfame etc etc.. and part out the rest. Ill see what else i can come across. Back at uni, and in no real hurry yet again to get it finished... but i do just want it done once and for all!!! Got my mad garage setup nearly done. Pegboard, whiteboard, corkboard, shelving, all my hand tools finally etc etc. Just need all my power tools to fill it. Grinder, drill press, bench grinder, TIG, linisher etc etc. And a hobby lathe if i can fit it in somewhere.
  4. Oh and just one more for good measure: :(
  5. Well hello there again all Datnetters! Long time no chat/update! I always seem to be at a loss as to where to start in my never ending story... Well last I wrote I was just moving house out of a shitty little unit and into my own home. Well the good news is that I finally have completed the move! And already have A datsun in my garage... not mine however. A datto 1200 of my mates as his little side project. Now onto my datsun? Gotta be wondering where its up to yeah? Well its a long long story that ends TERRIBLY! So back as uni just ended, i was ready to attack my car 100%! And throughout the uni holidays nothing changed! I got sooooo much accomplished! And where did I get the car? Well... FINISHED! Everything was 100% ready to go for rego! (Not to be confused with 100% up to my aesthetic standards) I made up my exhaust, using 2.5" stainless pipe, 2 V-Band clamps and one muffler. Boy does it sound awesome!!! 4-2-1 extractors into a complete 2.5" system! Woooo! I even did what i think EVERYONE should do, and that is to make the exhaust go under/partly through the crossmember. Makes things so much easier! Super simple too. I even did it with the crossmember in the car! Got my floor mount handbrake all mounted up and adjusted sweetly! Thanks DS. Now, the one thing that was holding me back? And has been for many many months? THE WIRING! What a fking nightmare!! Turns out I had a combination of about 3 different wiring looms in my car...... NO WONDER IT WASNT WORKING! I ended up going back to the mutilation of a wiring loom that came in my original white car! Lots of joining and cutting and repairing later... we have one completed, working wiring loom! So all my lights and gauges and all that are working perfectly! And just to make things super cool with the engineer and rego guys... i jacked the back up even further! Putting in some old rally springs which made it sit up at the point where i had about 1deg of positive camber! hahahah.... need a wee little bit cut off. Also gave a clearance of about 165mm from the exhaust to the ground hahahhaha. AAAAnd i changed the wheels to some R31 Ti rims just to get the rubber inside the guards hehe. So by now your probably wondering where it all goes wrong? Well, I had a good ol chat (15 minutes) to Mr Engineer, and he said its all sweet! And asks what i want to be certified on the certificate! So i list all the things... and he says no problems at all!! I had my blue slip all booked in for Friday afternoon, but before that i decided i would trailer it to get a wheel alignment. So booked it in! This is where it all goes horribly.. terribly wrong! Driving it out my garage..... down my driveway.... heading for the trailer.... and just as i head up the ramps.... what happens?? A valve spring retainer decides to snap in two. Sending a lovely present of a valve down to meet cylinder 4! So whilst theyre getting quite well acquainted, all this extra metal flying around in the headworks cant be good! And no it wasnt.... Smashed rockers... Dislodged tappet shims... etc etc. So basically its all %#@!ed. Some pretty nasty gouges out of my poncams... %#@!ed rockers... %#@!ed piston... %#@!ed head... and no doubt a %#@!ed block. Hmmm tasty. So what now? Well... im back in wollongong again... minus my datsun again. Gotta find another DE motor.... in good nic. Im gonna get a builder to do a quick freshen up.. might chuck in some procams and springs.. bit of porting. Who knows... it might end up being closer to a SR22. But then again im getting pretty sick of not having my datsun on the road.. so it might just be a standard motor... and ill re use my %#@!ed one, and sleeve it and get a new head. Just to top off the datsun adventures.. my computer has been eaten alive by virus' thanks to my brothers dirty network.. i lost my iPhone.. lost my camera.. and now im back at uni! Lets hope the end of the year is better than the first half. Here are some pictures to add to the entertainment:
  6. What Parts Are Worth Salvaging?

    awesome guys very big help! Ill send a message to DATTO asking what exactly he needs.. Chris
  7. Dq Downunder

    Hahah funny you should ask.. i was looking at getting a subscription just the other day. I'd love a subscription, but i would just HAVE to get the complete back order.. and i have more pressing things to spend my money on at the moment.. like datto, house, tools etc etc.. I do plan on getting one though!! Any possibility for a group buy?? Not sure if it would work.. but maybe if you could get 10 or 20 people up for an 8 issues they might offer a better price?? Not sure... Maybe someone could volunteer to be an Australian distributor?? Actually... if it means better prices, and cheaper postage for them in the states, i will volunteer to be the Australian distributor. Do you think something like that could go down??
  8. What Parts Are Worth Salvaging?

    I did consider that... but, seems a whole lot of effort people dont want to go to lol... however, the 240k dash is quite attractive.. so i might look into that one for car number 2. So do you have to cut up the R31 tank and weld the two together? They're in pretty bad shape unfortunately... body wise anyways. Still lots of running gear and suspension components..
  9. What Parts Are Worth Salvaging?

    Cool! Goes on the list.. i hear all the 1200 guys want them as they bolt in or something?? Is there a difference between turbo and non turbo? Also, why not 1988? The 240k is missing most of the engine bay stuff (still has block and head mounted to the crossmember) and it has an auto box. There is just the usual amount of rust for the age, and the interior is in supprisingly okay condition... ie complete and not hacked up. Its probably 80% all there... and the drivers door is gone.. Even has good nic tail lights and trim. Missing all the front headlights and grill though.
  10. What Parts Are Worth Salvaging?

    Okay, so i have come across the following cars and parts, and wondering if there is anything worth salvaging for use in a 1600.. or purely for its resale value. Here is the list: - Stanzas................................................................... ummm anything? - 200bs ................................................................... struts? crossmember? - 120ys and a wagon ................................................. sway bars for 1200 guys? - Bluebirds and TRXs ................................................. elec dizzy setups? TRX rims? - 180sx (minus motor and front suspension) ................ doors? rear hatch? rear 1/4 windows? rear cradle? (doesnt have diff) - 240k auto ............................................................... front 270mm struts? rear diff, shafts or arms? - 720 ute diesel ......................................................... front diff? - R31s galore ............................................................ front struts? complete rear brakes? - R31 Silhouettes (no diffs) ......................................... same as above.. but anything special about the silo? - RPJS12 ................................................................... front struts? hubs? - PJS12 ..................................................................... any difference to the RPJS12? - 260c ....................................................................... anything? - 260z (no rear suspension or diff) ............................... front struts? - Z31 (no diff) ............................................................ cv shafts? hubs? struts? - Urvans .................................................................... remots reservoirs? - Hiluxs ..................................................................... S12 4 spots (non vented)? - A toyota 3s-gte?? - Potentially a toyota 2t-g?? - VG30DETT? Not sure what can be useful or not... But ill most probably get the following; TRX rims, 240k front struts, 720 front diff, r31 front struts, 180sx rear cradle... But i wanna know the possibilities for CV rear ends, and diff options... Anyone need anything? What would YOU take if you came across all this? Cheers guys... im doin my bit to keep the Datto spare parts river flowing... Chris
  11. Anth's 1969 Datsun 1600 Fj20et

    Yeah thats the one! I reckon you should do both the FMIC and ally radiator at the same time. Would hate to make up a perfect fitting radiator.. then have to change it again to fit the FMIC. You could do something similar to the Datsport setup.. pretty simple when u think about it. Im sure youll post pics of how it all goes! Cant wait to see how it all comes together.
  12. Anth's 1969 Datsun 1600 Fj20et

    Nope hes a Melbourne guy.. Oh well i guess there is more than one Dan who arranges and imports wheels to Oz! lol.. Actually the guy im talking about used and might still be on these forums and ozdat as Green510 i think.. he had a Green 1600 with L20 with twin webers, then was goin a CA with massive turbo.. then sold it to his brother.. and theyre doin awesome Meisters on it now... I think thats how it all goes lol. Anyways, hope everything goes smoothly for ya! Keep up the communication, and everything will be easy as. Need Microtech, FMIC, and some action shots! Whens the next local motorkhana or something like that? You need to get this in competition!! Will be awesome man.
  13. Anth's 1969 Datsun 1600 Fj20et

    If thats the Dan that I used i can give 100% positive feedback!! Does he own an awesome light blue stanza with JDM stylez? Although the wheels took ages to come, that was out of everyones reach! All down to the freight company. He uses a guy named Streeter in Japan, but just so you know, this is the GOOD Streeter.. as there is a very undesirable guy with the same last name, but different first name (cant remember them sorry) Cant wait to see them on the datto! I think they will be PERFECT!! Go 15's on Datto's!!!! Wooo!
  14. Nothing new just yet.. Dad is doing some work on it for me... namely changing the rear springs to higher ones so it passes roadworthy, and changing the wheels so i can sit all for wheels vertical (ie. No camber) so the guy doing the blueslip for me is happy.. Ive been busy with Uni, and moving house.. so everything is quite chaotic at the moment. But a week from now, and ill be in my new house gettin everything set up (especially the garage). And just because you wanted a pic, ill show you whats in the pipeline:
  15. What Carpet!?!?

    I did think about that, but that meant probably another couple of weeks at the trimmer And time means money... I ended up going for the KNOX plush carpet with the sound deadening underlay.... we will see how it all comes together. Chris
