Update — Work to Get Back to the Track Resumes

We have not been on track with our Datsun 510 for over a year, but we resumed work a couple of weeks ago. From a list of 108 Items we are down to 55 but all the major, time-consuming, stuff has been completed. Yesterday, December 3rd, the first test-start took place after completing the following:

1. Checked cylinder head torque.
2. Verified cam to cam follower contact using machinists blue.
3. Verified cam timing.
4. Set valve clearances.
5. Primed oil system and filled Accusump by running oil pump with electric drill.
6. Motored engine on the starter, without sparkplugs.

Hearing the engine running after so many months sure lifted our spirits!

What a difference the lift makes from past circus-routines to work under the car!
