Been a while since an update, A14 has been running well. Finally got the jetting better, smoother to drive and more fuel efficient! Up'd the main jets and changed the emulsion tubes to improve the change between idle and main jet. Its still a little bit lean, but have spent far too much lately on trial and error with finding the jets. 

In November, my diff became seriously whiney. Ended up buying a 2nd hand head to put in, this seems to be working okay for now.

Sourced a Datsun H165 ute diff 4.11 ratio, this needs some mods to fit but will be far stronger than the h150 thats in the car at the mo. Will be working on this throughout the year when I visit home during breaks from uni

Took the car to Caffeine and Classics at Hampton Downs after xmas, also came to the Oldschool Drags at Meremere!

Cut off the h150 brackets to mount onto the h165. Will need to make sure I weld these on perfect! aiming for a non cert swap as the diffs are practically identical

Few small updates from today -

Bracket made for 120y hand brake cable to mount, bit on the ugly sign but she'll do! 

Diff wire wheeled, rust treated and prepsol'd ready to prime tomorrow. Aiming to have the diff in on Sunday after I do a some exhaust mod's...

Also, forgot I never posted the guard resurrection. In December last year I spent some time repairing rust, filling and sanding. Got some paint matched, its not perfect but pretty close considering the lime/yellow/milky colour. The paint tin is back at the shop and they are having another go at it.

So back to the diff, aiming to have the exhaust sorted on Saturday and the diff in on Sunday. Might go for a hoon up the road on Sunday night :D

Diff installed and running well! Ended up getting a driveshaft shortened, re balanced and a new joint fitted under level 3! The 4.11 ratio provides a fair bit more torque than the 3.9 and is paired well with the 5 speed box!

 

Anyway, I was asked a while ago to share some photos of inside the car as I'm pretty useless at this... Interior is 95% mint, a tear in the hood lining and a tear in the already repaired drivers seat. Plans to get this tidied up soon!
