L16 inlet/exhaust gasket problems

I've got a real hassle here, the gasket has now failed twice and is leaking out the bottom of the exhaust ports past the gasket. After the first failure I got the exhaust manifold surfaced as it was a little out of true against a straightedge. I then used a gasket from APPCO and installed it dry. Th...

Datsun 1600 exhaust hanger rubber needed

Anyone give me a clue as to where I can pick up these? I went to Magoo but they don't have anything remotely similar.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Trademe/Yahoo Japan Auctions

That 1600 looks interesting, could clean up nicely. They are a good looking car, and increasingly sought after it seems looking at the last couple of really good ones that have sold on BAT: http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1971-datsun-510-4/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://brin...

Top 510 build - interesting read

http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-datsun-510/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
