Re: Having troubles getting 1980 Datsun 510 Started

Fill out your profile. Where are you?

Choke not on enough. The way it's flapping around it may not be connected properly.

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

Starter is bolted to the transmission. Flywheel is bolted to the engine. If the spacer is missing the transmission will be closer to the engine, moving the starter forward away from the flywheel. This would mean the starter has farther to reach in for proper engagement of the starter ring. I would g...

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

With the starter out, did you rotate the engine completely around to inspect the flywheel ring? In order of easy (and more likely) to more difficult... Look between the engine block and the transmission. There should be a 1/16" engine plate sandwiched between them. If missing (could happen if f...

Re: WTB: L20B Oil Pan & Pickup

Well other than the 521, the L16 came in the 510 so it will fit the L18 and L20B just fine.

Re: WTB: L20B Oil Pan & Pickup

Not nearly enough information.

If for a 510, use an L16 pan/pick-up from a 510.

Generally car L20B 'front sump' oil pans fit the car they came from... 610/710/A10/S10

Re: 6 speed sr20det gearbox

Early and 71B transmissions, the mainshaft was machined. On the 71B there were metal or plastic. Top is a '79 zx, bottom is an
'85 720 diesel.

Re: Column shift auto to manual?

I have the mid ratio 280zx 5 speed and 4.11s in my 710. Originally 3.70, gears really woke it up. Very pleased with the grunt it has now. My 2,734 mile Canby trip last summer, I got 29.324 US or 35.2 MPG Imp gallons over all.

Re: WTB radiator for automatic.

http://www.myjeepxj.com/uploads/images/Jeep/transmission-cooler/DSCF0223.JPG Get yours re-cored and add an RV transmission cooler to the front. I cut a rad open once and there was only about 6" of copper pipe in the tank bottom. How this cools is beyond me. I used the heat exchanger from an ol...

Re: Column shift auto to manual?

If you haven't selected a transmission yet there are several ways to go with this. Check out volume 11 issue 4. The author has some small knowledge about L series transmissions and the 510, what fits and what's needed to get them to fit. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByCvxnHNk90SYzc4N2E1MW...

Re: Proportion valve

My 620 was on 33" tires and 16" lift. The rears would lock from the incredible weight transfer. A Wilwood valve turned to max (65%?) allowed front and rear to lock together. I mounted it under the hood to prevent me fiddling with it while driving. Best to set and forget. BTW they are illeg...

Re: i need help identify a transmission

Makes sense. What little I know comes from two guys I've talked with that are in Norway. The 71B is built to handle a six cylinder so plenty strong for a four. The one I have right now I found in a metal scrap yard. The car had bee crushed by an excavator and it was weeks before I noticed it was som...
