A little rusty on all the info on this pushrod 2 liter (or stroker) completed in 1975. I'm older now
I still have the car too. A friend rebuilt the engine for me (he had a 67.5 2 liter with Solex carbs and factory cam) and I was able to pull away from him after he rebuilt my car. Maybe the cam maybe the fly wheel maybe the gear ratio I do not know.
2 liter crank cut and key ways machined.
Aluminum head from 67 1600
Bought a 5 main bearing short block
Racer Brown Cam grind 266 duration 0.475 lift (0.12 intake 0.14 exhaust) to be adjusted running and hot. I am too old for the running part I just check them when car is hot
Bigger radiator made in 75 added electric fan much later in the 90's with on switch (no thermal switch).
160 degree thermostat
Added the plastic fan later after I exploded the metal one racing up a hill (before I added the electric fan)
Racing oil pump from Datsun comp
Racing oil pan Datsun comp(7.5 QT finned aluminum)
Stewart Warner mechanical oil pressure gauge
Stewart Warner mechanical temp gauge
1600 stock SU's changed the jets not sure which ones I have now
Headers replaced the stock manifold and added a bigger exhaust and glass pack mufflers in 1975
Redline in 8000 RPM hence I added the 2 liter tach goes to 8000 and 160 speedo
Not sure what the builder did for the valve springs but I recall they are stiffer than the stock ones
Balanced flywheel, rods pistons and crankshaft
Standard 67 distributor and points
Domed racing pistons (I believe they were Jans at the time, but there is not a Company or Jans pistons now) no paper work on them.
Four speed transmission and 68 rear end with traction bar
Low top 67 body
One my third electric fuel pump
Had racing suspension springs but my wife refused to ride in it so I went back to stock still stiff with the Konis.
I still have the rear spring in my garage they are like railroad ties!
Added halogen headlamps
Window wipers suck use Rainx and drive fast!
I have exploded the clutch under fast acceleration up hill (an interesting sound)
~ 26 K miles since changes, been on some long trips with it. Rear wheel bearing broke free and the axel popped out tore up the tire but car went straight down the road.
Fixed both wheel bearings since. The stiff suspension caused some battery acid to leak which ate through the washer on the original alternator and burned up my ameter it glowed bright red when the hot line shorted to the alternator case. Fortunately I had a cutoff anti theft switch at the time (in the main wire) and was able to stop the short before the car caught on fire. So beware of super stiff suspension and battery acid leaks.
When some one added wheels to my car the wheels rubbed the brake line and no brakes.
Careful when adding wheels too especially without dual master cylinder
Had the car towed once on the rear wheels (big no no) countershaft in tranny burned up.
This car has been in the family a long time.
