Re: engine dies like a switch was thrown

Ah... EI. If power to the coil on the positive terminal, and a jumper to ground on the negative side produces a spark, then the problem is somewhere in the distributor. https://i.imgur.com/ZOkbBht.jpg 1/ Check for power right at the B terminal on the module. 2/ Check that the wire from the C termina...

Re: Turbos and B210 boosters

All Datsuns with brake boosters have an in line, one way valve, between it and the intake vacuum supply. If working properly there is residual vacuum in the booster after the engine is shut off. This means that if your engine should quit while driving, there is still enough vacuum in the booster to ...

Re: engine dies like a switch was thrown

Not running but headlights work. Not the fusible link... Crank the engine over and check for spark by holding coil wire near ground or use an old spark plug. Got spark? Yes .... pull a plug wire off and check for spark. Confirmed no spark. Problem is between the coil wire and plug wire. Distributor ...

Re: 2020 Concept Nissan

Red Batmobile. Nissan hasn't been Nissan since about '95.

Concept cars are to DDs, what fashion model 'clothes' are to jeans and a T shirt. Never have I ever seen a concept car turned into a production reality by ANY car maker. If we had we'd all have flying our cars to go to work by now.

Re: 620 KC project

Yeah just swap the 620 body onto the 720 frame assuming the 720 is also a long wheelbase truck, and keep the Z24. If the 720 is a short wheelbase you'll have to make a flat bed for it. Keep the 620 wiring and you'll have to convert to internally regulated alternator (on the 720) easily done. The upp...

Re: 5 speed hole cutting!

The SR will surely be a 71C car transmission and they are 3-4 inches longer than the 71B. Here's what I had in my 710.... It's an F4W63L same length and shifter as the 510. I installed a 71B from a '79 280zx and the shifter fit the hole or better said I did not have to cut anything. Now seeing as ho...

Ok. I didn’t read that very carefully. A 350z uses a 240mm clutch. Perhaps that will work for you?

I think they are 250mm but 750 and 880 Kg clamp.

Re: How to get a 5.1 or 4.875 final drive for a R180 diff ?

I have an '85 diesel 5 speed. Well in parts. The front case was donated to be used on a Roadster. (the starter is on the left and the bolt holes line up with the U20 block) with the front case you can 'graft' on a 71B or 71C body and gears. A great way to get around the scarcity of parts for the ori...

Re: How to get a 5.1 or 4.875 final drive for a R180 diff ?

None of our Diesels were 4x4.

The '87-'89 4 cylinder Pathfinder WD21 had a 4.625 R-180 in the front but may be short length

The '80 Long Bed 4x4 did have the long nose R-180 in 4.625. I know of none above that number.

Re: Motor mount question

Try just starting all the bolts and leave loose. Same with the engine brackets.
