  1. thanks for your wishes. The previous picture shows a lot of carbon buildup on the pistons.I did looked out for a mechanic but he gave me wrong information on how to remove the heads, however it ok as I like to think out of the box and was able to send the heads to a machine shop. Can’t wait to get the heads back and put them back on the car, I am getting a digital torque wrench so I can put them back using proper procedures.
  2. Hello guys, I Also decided and was brave enough to take off the heads (LoL) and found out that there was in deed coolant mixed with the oil. I already sent the heads to a machine shop for a rebuild. A mechanic told me that my crankshaft sounds like a 383 stroker, the pistons has 0.030 written on them and I did a research and shows that a 195cc inner runner volume and 70cc combustion chamber was enough for that type of engine. Could you confirm that? I am going on a 383 direction, it has an edelbrock 1406 and I was told that with spreas modification ( carburetor jet kit) can improve its perform
  3. Thanks guys for all your support. I went and rented the compression tester gauge set and I’ll keep posting as I go through this process. And there’s a closer picture of the part I was talking about.
  4. Sorry for the Newby questions. Could you please tell me what is that and the purpose?
  5. Thanks for your reply I don’t have much experience as a mechanic, everything I am doing is based on research and google, I had made many mistakes using you tube as sometimes they explain things as if you were knowledgeable of mechanics, I got the idea of the coolant in the engine as in the video if you look at the left lower corner of the heads looks like there is some coolant or water with the oil, and base on what I was told in the past I assumed antifreeze was getting in the engine mixing with oil, I’ll check the oil and see if there’s any mixtures, it still has the oil the previous owner p
  6. Thanks for your reply, I love Datsun s30’s so I got this one to keep it, well cancer had me in bed for over 8 months so my wife and some friends helped me out getting this car to keep my mind busy and to get up from bed, I started working on it, cleaned the under carriage and painted all the wheel arch’s, then again, honestly I almost didn’t make it out alive form the hospital, many times I was told that I wasn’t make it, internal bleedings, hoses in the chest (ports), intestines paralyzed, they said problems with the brain, like a stroke but is a new disease call Miller fisher syndrome and
  7. When I bought the car I was running, but then I changed the valve covers gaskets and header gaskets so it was smoking and I thought it was because of that. 20200529_112600.mp4 20200529_112600.mp4 20200529_112600_1.mp4 But when I removed the valve covers I noticed like milk or coffe color with the oil, the oil on the dipstick is clean, I wonder if is because the guy who sold me the car changed the oil to cover up any problem it might had, I did not have the chance to run the car enough after acquiring it as I was il , I also found antifreeze once by one of the intake manifold b
  8. .Hello guys, I’ve posted the same topic on S30 forum and I won’t to see if here can also get some information. I have my S30 and it already has a 350 in it, I found out some milky ( hard to see) stuff on the radiator cap so I assume it’s a blown head gasket, it has a custom driveshaft, turbo transmission, it has an Edelbrock 6073 aluminum heads conversion kit and performer manifold, 1406 carburetor , hooker headers, ceramic coated twin Anasa exhaust system... my concern here is that I might be in the need to rebuild the whole engine, and hope the heads aren’t cracked as aluminum heads tent

  10. Thanks i already have an idea of how to use an multimeter, I used to build RC cars and that video gave me an reminder of how To properly use it, I already had ordered the multimeter and the power and tach wires And will come by mail by tomorrow. Ill test the cables, distributor cap and I’ll be back with any updates. thanks again.
  11. Thanks for all your support and your time, as time is something that we cannot get back anymore. I read your message Too late my friend 🤯🥴, I watched a couple of videos and they suggest to clean the inside of the distributor and the metal parts, So I did it as they suggested.so when I asked if there was any chance for the distributor to be affected in any how if the cap was removed, is because I was afraid of what just happened🤦🏻😅 Lol. I was cleaning The rotor as stated on one of the videos and it moved clockwise very easy. And looks like it was aligned with a mark that was painted on the modu
  12. Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the help, I am going to replace the tach and power connectors, do you think it could be better if I replace the whole distributor? Because I believe the distributor comes with the wires. And they cost around $20 to $30 on O’rellys or auto zone. If I remove the distributor cap (with the cables attached) how do I Know if there is any damage? Does this affect the distributor in any way?. Also can I replace the brake vacuum reservoir hoses without compromising air getting in to the brakes fluids? Thanks for the help.
