Re: Throwout bearing question

Yes, I'm more familiar with the left ones. The L16/18s used the right. The L20B and up used the left. Still say go for quality for hard to get at parts.

NAPA, O'rielies, Rock Auto, Nissan, Lordco, Hartman, Advance, Bumper to Bumper, someone will get you the right one.

Re: Throwout bearing question

If the one on the left, it does look like an original bearing. The one on the right does not. These are parts that are high wear and hard to get at. Saving $8 bux on a POS Chinese made bearing is asking for trouble. Now if this was a wheel bearing that can be easily removed in about 10 min it wouldn...

Re: Assessing Amperage

If you replace with another box.. remove the fuses, clean thoroughly and soak over night in a solution of lemon juice and salt. In the morning, clean thoroughly and air dry. This will remove only the copper/brass tarnish and provide a good electrical contact with the new fuses.

Re: Assessing Amperage

Dime Quarterly Vol 11 issue 3 has all you need to ID your fuse box. Has the fuse ratings also. You want enough fuse amperage to supply the needs of what ever is on that line BUT it must not exceed the current carrying ability of the wire on that circuit. The whole point is for the fuse to be the wea...

Re: WTB L-16 Lower Alternator mount

Imagine sitting in a stool with two legs. It tends to rock around a line drawn through where the two legs touch the ground. The L16 alternator mount is the same way. I know all L20B (and maybe the L18?) Have three bolts. A tripod is the most stable stool there is..

Re: 1974 Datsun 620 With A Twist

Spare open chamber head is good. No good for an L16 but will work on an L20B in a pinch. Hang onto that 4 speed as a spare if your new trans ever needs work. The L18 pistons (if in good shape) will fit an L20B an give 9.27 compression. L18 crank and rods can be fitted to an L16 making it an L17. Nev...

Re: Photobucket trying to blackmail me.

All mine display the above message. They say I have only used about 22% of my allotted storage space. I won't close my account, that would be giving in and making it easy for them. What arrogant assholes! All my pictures are saved on my computer so they don't totally own me.

Re: Milage for Duffy lake run

Have run Lillooet/Pemberton twice this year and once the other way. Including once in my 710. Gotta say it's my favorite section of highway on my 1.500 mile Canby road trip this year. I always try to include it.

Photobucket trying to blackmail me.

Unless I pay $400 all of my PB pictures used here or elsewhere are no longer view able. Besides the incredibly shitty service and constant changes, lengthy waits and impossibly hard navigation through the site, they want me to pay????? What the fuck? I sent them feedback through e mail and told them...

Re: Instrument panel voltage regulator

I think the regulator in the gauge cluster itself. Trouble shoot first before tearing the dash apart. As the regulator works both gauges, if one is working.... it's not the regulator. If you ground the sender wire for the temp gauge the gauge will read full scale hot. Grounding the sender in the gas...

Re: Hello, I'm new. 1969 521 in San Diego

There's a large 521 following over on http://community.ratsun.net/forum/44-521/ including front disc brake conversions by Mklotz70 and BEEBANI. You can even ditch the king pins for custom ball joints. I think there is a coil spring conversion to get rid of the torsion bars.... something that would m...

Re: Speedometer problem

The trip odometer is mechanically connected to the car odometer and can be zeroed. The transmission drive cable is not directly coupled to the needle. The cable spins a magnet inside a cup with the needle attached. (somewhat like rear brake shoes inside the brake drum) The cup has a return to zero c...

Confirmed... L20B, probably a '79/'80 by the look of it. Look on block behind dip stick handle for the stamped letters.For head ID look along bottom edge of head between first and second spark plugs... MADE IN JAPAN W58 I bet
