    Whoa these are neat! If I had seen these 2 years ago I would have gotten a set

    With the 5.3 do you need to use a ls1 intake manifold? Are you going to build your own mounts or getting a kit?

    do you need the kia blower housing/cage or do you just need this part? I'm looking at getting it from rockauto
  5. OK I confirmed that the blue wire is hot at the tach and the black ground wire is good. I put the multi meter on frequency setting on the blue/white wire while pressing the throttle I get a verity of numbers. How likely can it be that both tachs I have are bad?

    man it has been a long time since i updated this thread. I have done quite a bit since then... i'll let the pictures do the talking. Still have to replace the passenger side floor pan. I'm a little irritated with myself though because I meant to hammer out the dents in the floor pan rail (Where someone previously had jacked the car up) before welding the pan in and I forgot to do it
  7. I guess I should have done a better search instead of starting a new thread. but here's a cut and paste from the thread i started. Maybe someone here can assist? 1978 280Z tach issue with SU carbs and GM HEI My tach isn't working. I have confirmed that the solid blue wire is hooked up to the negative terminal on the coil and that in the passenger floorboard area the resister is hooked up to the solid blue and the blue/white wire. I currently have the hazard switch unplugged and also have the stock ignition box un hooked. How should I confirm that the tach is getting signal and power? Which colored wires that the tach plugs into the factory harness should I check to see if the tach is getting power? Thanks

    I apply seam sealer and let it cure, then I primer and paint.

    Tack welds then seam sealer. 3M 08505 seam sealer is what I use but I am trying out a tube of 3M Dynatron 550 on those patches I put on the rear inner fender. It's about 1/2 the price and appears to be the same product

    more sheet metal repair. the picture with the black coating is the drivers side rear inner fender. The other pictures are from the passenger side. I got the sheet metal cut from the paper template but didn't have time to fold it/bend it and weld it in. Likely do that later this week. I'm hoping to get the gas tank back from the radiator shop this week too.

    Right on!!! I've been enjoying the pictures of ol' glory on the datsun facebook groups!!! Tony has been teaching me how to weld and do body work.

    I drove the crap out of it on Saturday during ZDayz and had a blast. I dropped the tank off yesterday at the radiator shop to boil it out and seal it. I figure I should be able to pick it up early next week and get it back in that weekend. My buddy is going to be making some more of the Datass emblems soon with a higher resolution printer (mine was printed super low rez as it was a prototype). ill talk to him to see if he wants to sell them.

    Don't have any pictures to post but I got the drivers side rear inner fenders welded/sealed up. Still have to do the passenger side rear inner fender though. The other weekend I took her to hwy 129 (the dragon) for ZDayz and had a blast. It was a lot of fun seeing my car keep up with the newer 350z and 370z. I also discovered that the source of all my fueling problems was a bunch of crud in the tank. I dropped the tank this weekend and will be taking it to a radiator shop to get boiled out this week.
