    Impulse buy-

    An impromptu search led to an impulse buy sight unseen and a 900km road trip to bring it home.......... radio doesn't work too well- that's what triple webers are for.... bad storm about 15km from home introduced me to how bad it leaks... meh - I'll wear gumboots......









    Have a boot full of spares, parts and service manual, owners (glovebox) manual etc...... I am one VERY happy camper
    A 320 ute, 2 roadsters, 2 1200's ...... & a Prince.

    You legend.

    Fantastic.

    To answer a few queries on your behalf :P

    Camshaft; It's an S54B, so yes "S5x-series"
    hellaflushhako; Yeah they were, the Skyline lost lugs as it got newer :lol:, the 1st Gen. was 6,
    2nd Gen. was 5,
    3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th Gen. were 4.

    8th and up were mixed 4 and 5.

    Congrats on that purchase. Very, very keen to see more pictures and shots of the spares.

    Brilliant!

    Made my morning actually.

    Man, I'm sad.... :lol:

    Nice. That cars been for sale for a while now. Great to see it go to a good home. Blogged about it here: http://www.nostalgictrio.com/blog/?postid=69

    I remember someone saying it had the wrong engine? Not that I care too much about such things.

    Wow! The early Skylines are some of my all time favorites. Coolest impulse buy ever. :tu: Reminds me when my dad and I drove about 900 miles to Washington state to buy a '71 510 -one of the first 510s I've ever seen in person- and bought it on the spot. Keep us posted! :mrgreen:
