what's the little brass thing to the left of the crank then?


Sorry, I thought you were talking about in the picture of the brush guard... yes, that "brass thing" is a block heater. All the EA81 motors I have, have them.

The owner of the dealership sent this to me today... He said every car on the floor had to have a price listed.

Brought her home on Friday and fitted the pushbar I picked up this past winter and the NOS fog light kit that I've had for a few years.

Cleaning out the garage to fit in the next project (70 Datsun roadster) and found the 50# bucket of rust I cut out of her. I had always intended to take a picture of it but then lost it in my garage for the last year LOL.

Now I can throw it out!

Brought her home on Friday and fitted the pushbar I picked up this past winter and the NOS fog light kit that I've had for a few years.

 

Is that brush guard bolted on, or just wrapped around the bumper. I picked one up a few years ago and lost a few brackets that I KNOW were used to bolt it to the car somehow. I'm certain because i unbolted it from the previous BRAT myself and still have the bolts, but I cannot for the life of me remember where I put the brackets or what they bolted to.

 

I brought it up on the forum a while back and everyone said they just had theirs on the bumper as a snug fit with no bolts.

Brought this home yesterday, I'll start a build thread next month on this. Plans are to get it rock solid (mechanically and body), save the patina and turn it into a survivor daily driver.
