620,i would be QUITE concerned about cracking, bung optional, but that crack..youll never get a warrant like that.

Yeah Bert, S.U's from a datto friendly chap called Grant up north. They are quite tidy,took to them with degreaser a bit, made some gaskets n darkied them up to suit. Head may get treatment but not for a while aye. No airbox,ill have a scout around for an appropriate filtration system/cheesecloth.
I just caved into daily driver-but-half-reliable-and-cheapishness, so no traditional sidedraughts anymore...they were so sweet

Do they run good?
I have a mate who'd dad is pretty sharp at tickling them up. He did the SU's on my L series sunny coupe I once owned. Went from being a complete piece of shit into possibly one of the sweetest running Datto's I've ever owned. It was amazing on gas too when driven nicely. Right before I sold it I drove it around for a week or so, and I could not believe how little gas it consumed. (When the boot wasn't right up it that is)
They don't call me the man with the rubber arm for nothing you know.............

No Don't do it that is a bit of Kiwi motoring History right there, don't cut that up to fit. I just got some uni filter material from a Bike shop and made up some sox, they work fine on mine. I'll modify a 240z filter in time, but it's nice having some protection there for the engine.
Do you have the Ram Tubes for the carbs, I can't verify this but am told they make then go harder!

Fuggin been hit twice since re-painting the car, not so impressed with my luck/complete opposite of luck with this datsun.

Now i really REALLY need a rear bumper, as a Prado just tore the endcap off on its way to pushing in the rear quarter
