Not a LSR project, but..........
« on: March 04, 2008, 10:35:00 AM »
     

.......... a project non the less.  This past couple months while I've been working on my lakester I've helped Shaun Begay put a 305 sbc in his '73 Datsun Z.  The 305 came from me and the 200R4 was the one that Hooley gave me when my transmission blew up in OK a few years ago and John (WZJUNK) helped me put it in the car then.

     

The rest of the pictures and what was involved is here..............

.......... Shaun has also recently bought a '51 Lincoln and a early 50's Chevy pickup, so I think we have a young rodder on our hands and he would like to make it to b'ville this year if he can.

c ya,

Sum

Sumner, I don't see any snow in the background. We had 8-9" last night, temps in the high 30's today with good sunshine, melting pretty quickly.

back in the late 80's - I stuck a SBC (plain 350, IIRC) in my 260Z - Did well going fast in a straight line - hope he has lots of fun with it!

Don't BS on the track - that's what the internet is for.

That's about as sanitary a SBC install in a Z as I've ever seen.  Well done, the both of you.
