  1. Thanks for the info guys. I appreciate it. This weekend is pretty busy for me so I didn't have much time to work on the car. In the meantime, I finalized the header and intake install and they are on for good. I had to wait for a new gasket that arrived a couple days ago. I also got the thermostat housing on, and the fuel rail and injectors. The throttle bodies are still only on there temporarily.

    It looks like it clears an AC pulley, but it seems like it might interfere with the belt / compressor. Hard to tell from the pics.
  3. I got a couple questions for you guys. 1) Since I'm going to be running LS coils, what kind of spark plugs should I run and at what gap? 2) Since I rebuild the head and it has a brand new cam, what break-in procedure do you guys recommend? And what oil should I run during break-in?

    Thanks a lot, those pics are very helpful!
  5. Did you also run a vacuum reservoir? Or are you just running the pump to the booster?

    It would be great if you can get a pic of the waterpump pulley as well as the AC pulleys. Also if you can, would you be able to measure the thickness of your radiator? I have a similar setup, but slightly different radiator and am curious to see if I could fit the altima fans. Thanks.
  7. Started test fitting stuff to check clearances. Also got the fuel pump installed in the tank this weekend. Next weekend is probably going to be running fuel lines, while still procrastinating the mess that is wiring. I also need to get another set of triumph velocity stacks, because the two sets I have are currently mismatched...

    How did you wire up the altima fans exactly? I recall they are a 4 wire plug due to high / low speed settings right? Are you just running high all the time? And how tight is the fan against the motor? How's the clearance for the pulleys and belts?
  9. Fuel tank vent / Evap tank / EFI question

    Car is a 73 240z, sorry forgot to mention it. I'm having trouble understanding why line 8 specifically gets connected to the filler neck. What's its specific purpose? Is it just so when I fill the tank full, the excess goes to the filler neck instead of the vent line? My tanksinc pump sits on the flat portion between line 7 and line 8 if that makes any difference here. My fender vent line is non existent, so I'm trying to figure out another solution. But thanks!
  10. So, I'm in the middle of converting my car to EFI/ITBs. I have a thread in the project forum. But I had a specific question about tank venting. I'm running THIS tanks inc pump, which has it's own vent opening. I'm trying to get rid of whole evap tank system and trying to figure out what to plug, and what to route where. A post in this thread suggests to only run rear tank pipe to the filler neck, then plug the rest of the tank fittings to get rid of the evap tank. So what do I do here? A : plug all the tank fittings, then run the tanks inc vent to the filler neck? B : plug all the tank fittings except the rear one, run the rear to the filler neck, then vent the tanks inc somewhere else? C : plug all the tank fittings, plug the filler neck fitting, and run the tanks inc vent somewhere else? D : something else that I'm missing? Also, does anyone make a line of fuel safe end caps for the tank openings? or do I have to do a stretch of fuel hose and bolt method?

    Thanks for the pics. I might copy your design for myself in the future if you don't mind.
  12. I'm going to be plugging my old feed, return, and vent holes off the tank and using the stuff from the new pump mount. What are my options for plugging the openings? Are there any fuel safe rubber caps? Or do I have to go with the bolt clamped into a fuel hose method? My datsun's mysterious history continues to baffle me. Started working on installing the fuel pump in the tank today. Cut open the top, cleaned it up etc. Found these guys rattling around inside the tank. No clue where they came from. Any ideas guys?
  13. Yes, its silicone hose, but the fuel injectors are down the line past the hoses and on the manifold flange. Do you think it would still cause problems? Worst case I can always weld it up, the hoses were about $20.
  14. I spent this afternoon in the machine shop making a mount that would let me use existing holes in the triumph throttle bodies. Off of this mount I setup my throttle linkages and idler rod. Here is everything setup with a loose test fit. I still need to work on the sides of the droplink that connect to the triumph cable pull location.

    I love your front splitter setup. Can you get some more pics of it? I'm trying to figure out how it's mounted underneath the car and where it pivots.
