Hello from new member checking in all the way up here in northern California. Just looking to get help and thoughts on a baja build I'm working on. Quick background on me got my first bug about 3 years ago a 69 baja that my brother has now then I bought a 67 that I drove around until some one hit me from behind with enough force to pop off the valve covers then I bought a 66 to drive around while I fixed the 67. While sanding the 67 I started to find out that the car had been hit multiple times front, side and now rear Rolling Eyes oh well. That's the point I bought a irs pan and swaped the pan on the 67

The daily driver


The 67 project





Hopefully the pics work

Thanks man iv been slowing working on parts here and there new master, brake lines and swapping the rear for 5 lug so far. only thing is the motor Im building is giving me problems. Just last week while installing the crank and lifters I find out the lifters aren't the right size, way to loose. My friend tells me that the engine uses hydraulic lifters now I'm trying to figure out if it uses different crank and cam aswell. But I can't much info. they told me they might use Chevy lifters? Over here where I'm from not many people have experience with these motors.

there use to be a few kits out there for hydraulic lifters... when I looked at it the prices were not that bad but you must run a oil filter is the only thing you need to do. call Steve... he would know. 602-442-8997

Thanks dalton for the number. I gave Steve a call yesterday he told me I just need the right cam and lifters and I should be good. I'll also run a filter. I'm going to see if I can order the parts some were I'm also looking to see if I can find new and quality wheel studs I'm going to switch to different rims when I get a chance if I can I'll just to go to stock lug-nuts just don't like how they look. My brother bought a set of wheel studs for his baja at ORBS I just didn't get the name or brand. I'm trying to stay away from the empi brand wheel studs I had them and didn't like the quality.

These are the rims I'm going to switch to. I have a set of used tires I can throw on the rear tires that that were on my bros baja in the mean time. Till I find out what tires to buy.

running studs.. well if you are running drums the "stud heads" may rip off your break springs as they spin or hit a bump. use a spacer on the drum to move it out for clearance..

Get the studs and nuts from Empi.. I think they are fine.
