Another quick lunch time CAD session, modeling this awesome little TurboWerx Exa-Pump that will be used as the oil supply pump on the Datsun 620’s remote turbo oil system that is completely separate from the engine oil system. Just need to get the bolt on adjustable pressure regulator from @motionraceworks and this pump will be ready to squirt! πŸ€“πŸ’¦πŸ’¦ #mikebuildsadatsun #mikedrawsshitonlunch #datsun #dastun620 #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #cad #solidworks #3d #turbowerx #oilpump #turbo #remoteturbo #motionraceworks #exapump #oilsystem #lubrication #shesasquirter #1uz #1uzfe #turbov8 #twinturbo #getsome

Who said fuse blocks have to be ugly?? πŸ€“πŸ€“ Playing around with some design ideas for the wiring/relay/ECU command center on the Datsun 620 build, starting by cleaning up the look of the ever popular and boring Dorman universal fuse block with these trick 3D printed block cases and legend plates, that allow the fuse holders to be cleanly "flush mounted" for a nice tidy presentation. Wiring is now kept at the back of the panel and out of sight. Happy with how this design turned out, and made a test set to mount on a scrap and generic piece of metal to see it real life before continuing the designs. Printed on my Lulzbot mini using @matterhackers awesome Pro Series ABS teal and silver filaments. πŸ˜πŸ€“ #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #solidworks #rendering #render #3dprinter #3dprinting #3dprinter #3dprinted #abs #matterhackers #lulzbot #lulzbotmini #makers #makersgonnamake #wiring #wiringharness #electronics #12v #fuses #shutupitsnotovercomplicated #sorrytheyarecoolerjimmy #kylecuts

Those intake updates tho πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ€“ Test fitting the newly assembled mock-up intake "boost box" on the Datsun 620's twin turbo 1UZ motor. I'm really happy with this bruiser-ish look, it's got a brutal Mad Max look about it. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #minitruck #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #roadstershop #fabricated #fabrication #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #twinturbo #turbov8 #custom #chassis #customchassis #suspension #customsuspension #jdm #drift #builtnotbought #shutupitsnotovercomplicated #lulzbot #matterhackers #3dprinted #3dprinting

I'm lathe turning down the compressor cover inlets on these @borgwarnerperformance s256 turbos for the Datsun 620 build, making for a much tighter and better looking fit for these fantastic @vibrant_performance Billet HD aluminum clamp assemblies! Little by little this turbo build is coming together! #anyonewhobringsupsymmetricturboswillbeblocked #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #borgwarner #borgwarnerturbo #s256 #vibrant #vibrantperformance #billethdclamps #billetaluminum #lathe #latheturning #machining #instamachinist #fab #fabrication #fabricated #builtnotbought #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #twinturbo #turbov8

Simplicity is over rated.... πŸ˜‚πŸ€“ I designed and fabbed this super over-designed low-profile engine dolly specifically for the front sump 1UZ, and It makes managing and moving these motors around so much easier! I'm really loving my new @lincolnelectric Precision TIG 225, little welding projects like these finish off so well with this little machine! #mikebuildsadatsun #mikemakesacartthingy #datsun #datsun620 #designer #engineering #mechanicalengineering #solidworks #cad #3dmodel #toyota #lexus #1uzfe #1uzfe #1uzturbo #v8 #turbov8 #lincoln #lincolnelectric #tig #tigwelding #welding #fab #fabrication #fabricated #shutupitsnotovercomplicated

New mounting brackets for the twin turbo V8 Datsun 620's kick ass JDM @recaro SW20 MR2 LX seats have been finished, sharing some of the base mounts previously made for the fixed back fiberglass seats I had installed. Looking forward to diving back into the truck this weekend, and burn my fingers with some welding again! Using the @farotechnologies 3D laser scan of the seats made placing them into the other scanned and custom designed and drawn parts of the interior a breeze. Love that ubber cool tech we use every day here at @roadstershop !! πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ˜Ž #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #solidworks #cad #3dmodel #render #rendering #recaro #recarolx #seats #custom #fab #fabricated #fabrication #faro #faroarm #laserscan #laserscanning #frigginlaserbeams #3dscan #3dscanner #jdm #drift #builtnotbought #shutupitsnotovercomplicated

Taking some time to upgrade my fuel delivery setup now that the Datsun 620 build has gone from N/A to twin turbo, and the gurus from down under at @aftermarketindustries are bringing some sexiness to the build with their all new SPR900 Billet under-car surge tank setup! Housing twin Walbro 400 series pumps and having a nice modular square package that is meant to be mounted down low, this is a perfect addition to the build to fill the empty space on the driver’s side of the fuel cell! Killer cooling fins that dip into the air under the truck will help keep the pumps and captured fuel cool while always feeding the fuel rails properly, at any lateral-g thrown at the truck. 😎😎 Thanks to the team at @aftermarketindustries for the CAD model to test in the assembly, it’s great to work with people with similar nerdy modeling skills.πŸ€“ Time to rethink the lift pump and filter situation to bring it up to the same level as this beautiful billet price! #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun620 #datsun620 #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #aftermarketindustries #spr900 #surgetank #swirlpot #fuelsystem #fluidengineering #fueledbyai #billet #solidworks #cad #custom #walbro #1uz #1uzfe #turbo #twinturbo #turbov8

@vibrant_performance bringing on the sexy with a killer package of Billet HD Clamp assemblies for the Datsun 620 build!!! Huge thanks to @vibrant_performance for offering these killer CNC machined billet aluminum clamps in all the various crazy sizes needed for this remote bed mounted twin turbo system. These are going to really let that air to water inter cooler system and intake routing through the cab interior look and perform absolutely mint! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #vibrant #vibrantperformance #fab #fabricated #fabrication #built #custom #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #cad #solidworks #turbo #1uz #1uzfe #twinturbo #turbov8 #suspension #pushrodsuspension #cantileversuspension #jdm #drift

Turbo Nerd Time πŸ€“πŸ€“
-----------------------
I designed and 3-D printed some cool little cut jigs on my Lulzbot TAZ 6 for the Datsun 620 build, which helps me position the awesome @streetcarrfabrication billet transition flanges and @tialsport Wastegate flanges right where I need them! This let me easily cut and position the @vibrant_performance stainless up-pipe and wastegate tubes for a perfect fitment to one another, then I designed and had my boy @kblanas2 laser cut a simple little jig to position the tubes and flanges in exact position for tack welding into place. A lot of people ask me what are some real world uses for 3D printing, and this is definitely one of them! #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #minitruck #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #solidworks #3dprinting #lulzbot #matterhackers #taz6 #fab #fabrication #turbo #turbov8 #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #tig #tigwelding #weldporn @weldporn #jigs #workflow #nerdstatus #builtnotbought

Late night update. πŸ€“πŸ€“
βͺβͺSWIPE⏩⏩
I know Datsun updates have been slow as I have been finishing the Supra and slammed at work, but now that things are settling back down it's time to jump right back into this build! Turbo fab components are nearly all here, and I am starting fabrication tomorrow for the remote bed mounted twin turbo system! Check out these kick-ass all stainless turbo mounts that will be used to hold and secure the turbos is the bed. I am utilizing some killer all billet 304 stainless turbo flanges that transition beautifully to round tube, sourced from my friends at @motionraceworks . I set the flanges up in the Bridgeport and machined some 5/16" threaded holes in the sides, so I could bolt some custom designed and @kblanas2 laser cut stainless mounts on that fit the corrugations of the bed and will have bungs welded on to secure them in place to the bed floor. All stainless ARP hardware sets everything off, and looks killer. Excited to make awesome progress tomorrow! #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #minitruck #design #engineering #mechanicalengineering #solidworks #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #turbo #twinturbo #borgwarner #fab #fabrication #fabricated #vibrantperformance #motionraceworks #roadstershop #custom #stainless #stainlessteel

Mechanical monster! βš’πŸ”¨πŸ’¦ More awesome progress made today on the Datsun 620's new firewall, letting my boy @stan_anton show me the way on the small hammer and flanger while he does all the real talent work with the giant Yoder hammer! This is the first real metal shaping I have ever been hands on with, and while Derek did all the real work, he let me hop in and try the machines out on certain areas! Can't thank him enough for the progress so far, the new shaped tire recess profiles on the cab corners look awesome and just need a bit more tweaking to be perfect! Just need the top side corners with a cool pocket detail, and then we gotta figure out a trick way to cap off the old wiper cowl area and integrate the shape of the intake pipes! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #mikeandderekhammerstuff #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #minitruck #fabricated #fabrication #sheetmetal #sheetmetalfab #sheetmetalwork #flanger #yoder #powerhammer #planishinghammer #pullmax #hammers #custom #chassis #customchassis #suspension #customsuspension #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #builtnotbought

Day 1 progress of the Datsun 620's new custom made firewall, courtesy of @stan_anton and myself as a shitty apprentice πŸ€“πŸ˜‚ Lots of cutting and trimming on the old firewall, leaving the majority of the original wheel tub profiles in place as a reference until they are remade by hand. I made a bolt on and removable truss to hold the intake in relation to the cab as a reference point, which has been super helpful. We were able to start the first new sheetmetal section, using all kinds of loud and hammer-y equipment. Excited to make more progress tomorrow, and really let this thing take shape! Thanks again @stan_anton for the killer work! #mikeandderekhammerstuff #mikebuildsadatsun #datsun #datsun620 #minitruck #design #engineering #fabrication #fabricated #sheetmetal #metalworking #sheetmetalfab #firewall #custom #chassis #customchassis #1uz #1uzfe #1uzturbo #twinturbo #builtnotbought #jdm #butmadeinamerica
