Re: upgrade alternator

LR 160 is only 60 amp while the stock 510 was 33/35. Most later Datsuns into the mid '80s were 50/60 amp. These will just bolt on no changes. The one wire Saturn alternator also bolts on. May have to modify the adjusting strap. The Hardbody alternators retained the V pulley into the mid '90s. They a...

Re: Need help identifying these struts

3.5" is 89mm which is the caliper bolt spacing for two Nissan struts. The '80-'83 S110 200sx and the '79-'83 280zx. The 280z struts were never used and they did not have the vented rotor as in your picture. All turbo and normally aspirated 280zx years, '79-'83, were the same calipers and rotors...

Re: 710 park bench bumpers.

I don't have a lot to choose from. Most 80s vehicles are gone and '90s are all built in plastic crap.... so I was surprised to see this '62 there. Most Datsuns have the 5 MPH bumpers so almost anything is an improvement. This weekend is looking to be dry so maybe I can get the rear one finished. I'm...

Re: 710 park bench bumpers.

There's an old Firenza near me and the front bumper is less tall, maybe 3"? but has a point in the middle. Don't all old Pontiacs have a big nose on the fronts??? I guess I could trim that out to shorten and the rear is more like a 510 straight across the back. Others said the bumper is too tal...

710 park bench bumpers.

Only the early '73.5 710 got the 'smiley' bumper and even then it was not the same as the beautiful original as god intended the bumper to look like ones that graced the Japanese cars and elsewhere. Canadian vehicles all had to have bumpers capable of absorbing a low (5 MPH) shock. You've all seen t...

It's all about the risk. Pay less get less. You can't expect them to cover you totally like the $1,200 premium.


Get the best deal you can an drive and pray that you NEVER ever have to need it.

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

If you have ever had a flywheel off and put one on you will know that the flywheel actually slips over the end of the crankshaft and will sit in place even without the bolts. The auto spacer would prevent that and you would have to hold the flywheel in place while fumbling with the bolts. This would...

Re: Driveshaft length

Talk to a shop that specializes in drive shaft shortening not just a garage. I don't know but would guess from the center line of the rear U joint to the outer case of the transmission. They will know how much to move the front U joint back so you have a proper amount of spline engagement yet have s...

Re: L18 questions

I don't understand why anyone would go to the trouble to build an engine and then nickle and dime the oil filter. Fram are poor quality materials and construction. For the same price you can get better.

Re: Starter not engaging prperly

You have an engine plate so not that. Two starters doing the same thing. Assuming that the starter is ok the only other thing is the battery or the connections. Did you clean the battery posts and both cable ends? The ground wire on the head is it clean and tight. All have to make good electrical co...

Re: L18 questions

Looks about right. L18s have dished pistons. Measure the bore... should be 85mm. Make sure you don't run a fram filter.
