Datsun 1000 (VB10) A10 engine start up in box trailer v2.wmv

I recently bought an old A10 engine with 4 speed box for $84 on ebay. It had been sitting out in the weather and has not run for a long long time. Curious whether a rebuild was immediately required (or not) I hooked up some fuel and started it up in the back of the box trailer it arrived in. Was quite surprised how well it ran :-)

1972 Datsun 510 Wagon // KA24DE Start Up
Marking 1 year after one of my best friend's death comes one of the most glorious sounds I could've imagined, the start up of my 1972 Datsun 510 station wagon. The once L16 powered 510 took my friend Daniel and I on a ride to Gambrill State Park in Frederick, Maryland one week prior to his passing last year where, on the way home, we agreed the Datsun would receive a KA24DE as a replacement for the stock L16 engine. It took exactly one year to get it back on the road and despite feeling extremely sick today, there was no better way to connect with a fallen brother than a test drive in the car the holds nothing but memories. I only drove it for about 10 minutes for as some of you may hear, the spark plugs are causing a misfire and the fuel pump regulator needs replacing but I cherished every second. It will only be about 2 weeks before the car is 100% complete, but for now, my heart is sailing on happiness. Rest in Peace Daniel. You're always welcome for a ride.
