    Another project, another lesson

    So I got a Datsun 1200 , engine ran quite nicely , mad old bakkie though , one day it decided it wasn't going to start , I literally did everything I was baffled to why it wasn't wanting to fire up 😂 check it out and my camshaft gear for the distributor was destroyed, so I taught myself now how to rebuild a car motor luckily this little car is extremely simple.

    Before we took the motor out, carbon caked .


    Some bottom end work done , polished up the pistons and threw some new rings in and mains.





    Did a full port and polish on the intake and exhaust ports and polished the valves , really hope this thing will perform better now , new cam fitted and everything re greased and torqued down more to come later 😂

    Beer, so much more than just a breakfast drink.
    If I had saved all the money I spent on beer, I'd spend it on beer.
