Re: Oil pump priming shaft

Get a steel rod and hammer the end flat or grind down like a screwdriver. Chuck in a drill. Turn counter clockwise.

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

Electricity ALWAYS seeks out the easiest path to ground. Cracked or carbon tracked cap, rotor, spark plug porcelain, or coil tower is a short cut for spark to avoid having to jump the plug gap. What you have to do is make the plug gap the easiest path to ground by insulating the spark away from any ...

Re: Trans slips 5th gear

Any FSM from Nissan with your transmission in it will have the chart. Once the cover plate is removed you'll see that there is a shim around the outside of the counter bearing. (it's the bottom or smaller of the two bearings) The measurement is how far the bearing sits proud of the case that support...

Re: Trans slips 5th gear

The shims are select fit at the factory to allow for production inaccuracies. It corrects the front cover plate for proper pre-load on the counter bearing. Either way you would only need to remove the 5 cover plate bolts and the cover plate to get at it to make two measurements and then check the ch...

Re: Is this ok price for a 510 4dr?

While possible, a one owner is very rare. Service documents would really help here as a provenance. No rust is also very rare and subjective... there is always some rust somewhere if you look. Was it repainted? maybe repaired at some time? 100% stock is also very rare as some things can't easily be ...

Re: WTB Z20E Rods 152.5mm

Byron I doubt the Mileage option was available here. I have a feeling it was a Federal only package in the States. I've never seen one up here. I parted an '80 L20B 4x4 years ago. I have had 2 S110s (an '80 and an '81) that I parted out. Sold one set of rods into the States and Jason Wong took the o...

Re: WTB Z20E Rods 152.5mm

In the US the '80-'81 A10 (HL510) the '80-'81 S10 (2nd gen 200sx) and the '83-'86.5 720 with the Mileage option Z20 engine, all have the 152.5mm (6") rods in them. The part number is 12100-N8500

Re: Help to find an L20B flywheel in Europe

All six cylinder and 4 cylinder 2 liters and more are 6 bolt mount to the crankshaft and will interchange. They were drilled to accept either a 200mm 225mm or a 240mm pressure plate. 6 bolt flywheels can weigh either 29 or 21 pounds. So if you have a 225mm 29 pound wheel it will weigh more than a 24...

Re: SR20DET Oil Pump Priming

Assuming the oil pump works, push oil back through the pump instead of air. That will fill it and the pick up tube.

Re: questions on a 32/36 install

That hose connects to the flow guide valve mounted low on the strut tower it's pointing at. The flow guide valve does several things depending if the engine is running or not. When off, it allows evaporated gas from the tank (under very slight positive pressure) into the engine crank case for storag...

Re: questions on a 32/36 install

http://clunkbucket.com/wp-content/gallery/1973-datsun-510/datsun_510_slots2.jpg The block vent should be connected to the PCV valve in the intake as shown in the picture. The valve cover vent should go to the air filter housing. I hate when people fuck with this beautifully simple and benign system...
