the o ring that came with the rebuild set to seal the oil pump was to thick so the tolerances inside the pump were wrong thus pumping lower pressure

Good deal! I went ahead and ordered a new oil pump. Should be here in a few days...

it wasnt to hard man i got some turtle wax polishing compound and just went over the whole care lightly then followed with with a good waxing with an orbital buffer this is the first time ive washed it since then as well and it still looks good just want to keep the original paint as nice as possible since its still in decent shape 

 

main reason for doing all this detail work is i have a date and i want it to look as good as it possibly can XD

not sure what part your talking about since it could be two things because you have two pieces of trim that are like that. the very bottom ones below the doors are held on by metal clips that pop off. the ones in the middle of the doors, rear panels, and fenders are held on by pop rivets or small screws that can be seen after taking out the rubber strips that lay on them.

crap thats what i was afraid of im talking about the rubber strips i may take the one off the drivers door and try to straighten it then either that or buy new adheasive trim and replace whats there datsun did similar on the b210 and 710 and i dont understand why the factory put freaking holes in the doors and body panels to hold these stupid pieces on

over all it looks alot better and the whole car isnt perfect so i wasnt to worried about making it a perfect fender again especially with the rust it has but underneath it looked good no real rust to be seen even around the hood hinges which always rot out of these things

and we decided that the old drunk guy i bought this thing from is a very sneaky man the car had wiring for a breatholizer when i got it and i found this wedged in the heater controls looks like he was using one of thoses spare tire air compressors to get past the breatholizer

I Dig the Part of the Video and the Music When your Dad was putting in the Frt. Crank Seal With the Hammer...It Matched up Killer :headbang:!! I wish I had another Old Wgn. like that again{ I call them The OLD BAST*RDS} Good Cars!! 1 thing I"m trying to figure out is Why you Big guys Like these Cars so much..I have friends your size that drive them and they complain about being cramped but they won"t Quit driving em!! They Like them too Much :grin:  :drunk:  Snowin Like Hell Right Now-7" I hope we get 20-24" So I can Have Some Fun :banana: Well have fun!! Good Job To You an Your Dad!! Oh Nice Dats.!

thanks man yeah my dad is awesome he has been in the business for 35+ years and has been teaching me since i was old enough to hold a wrench then after highschool i went to school for automotive repair but on a job as big as an engine rebuild i wanted to be sure i did it right since i had never done it before so he assisted and now when i go to do the datsun engine it will be a solo gig as for big guys driving them i drive it because its 4wd and it snows here team that with bitchin mileage and its a win win situation though if someone had an rx or an xt i would trade my goon for one as long as the conditions were similar

im hoping that the imbalance that the epoxy adds doesnt make the whole thing break again. btw I watched that whole video and was thoroughly impressed. im sure there are other fans that will fit in there.
