This weekend was set aside for some Datsun work again. Me and my buddy got two important things done. Removing the cylinder head from his engine, and removing the pistons and crank from mine.
Ok, over to my engine then.
L-series rods have the cylinder number stamped into both parts of the rod. Neat.
Caps are removed easily by hand after undoing the nuts.
Pistons and rods will slide out easily. If not, just give them a slight knock with the shaft of a hammer or something similar.
To keep the rod bolts from dropping down, using a flexible magnet tool to remove them will make things easy.
Crank caps are also marked with numbers or F/C (front and center).
All caps can easily be removed by hand, except for the center and rear one. Use one of the bolts from the front cover, a piece of wood and a prybar to remove these two.
After removing all caps, you can just lift the crank out of the block.
Caps and bearing journals set aside for further inspection.
At last a little video with no less than 3 S30s in it. Not a fan of the music itself, but hey. Thanks to http://japanesenostalgiccar.com for the vid.
