Re: 1968 datsun 510 wagon heater schematic

No....I am getting cold air from somewhere above the heater body behind and above the ashtray. I get heated air thru the defrost ducts and thru the cabin ducts when selecting those.

I have a 71 heater assembly and looked at it and it is quite different than the 68.

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

Well, once again even after resizing my picture to 496kb it will not attach saying it is an invalid file. I guess at 70 I am too "old school" for this stuff. Sorry. *Edit* Photos posted for Scott by Byron - thanks for your input, hopefully this helps out the '68 owners out there with this conversion...

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

I finished the 95 Integra wiper motor install. I used a wiring diagram from Deano (thank you), new connectors and sockets from vintage connections, and had to do some machining/filing in order get the 68 arm onto the Integra motor. Time consuming but not too difficult. As near as I could measure, th...

Thanks guys. I'm having Vintage Air send me a catalog and planning on going with ecotech510's setup. Lot's of room in the VG engine bay. Battery is in the trunk now.

Air Conditioning for 72 4 dr. w/vg30?

Anyone done it out there? Vintage Air looks like a good option. The VG has enough "oomph" to power air and not be anemic like the old 1600 engine was. We live in Montana and rarely need a/c but a trip to southern california might require such a thing.

Re: Changing valves seals with head in place L-series

Byron, I used the Ford V6 Viton seals on my smoking 72 L16 and afterwards no smoke whatsoever. They are shorter overall so for a high lift cam they are great. I believe the # is SS 72686 Fel Pro. I used a box end wrench (1/2"?) to tamp them down on their seats with the cam in the head.

Ford EDIS for our carbed cars

Go to Autosportlabs.com for detailed instructions on how to convert our distributor engines to crank fire. I am in the process of doing this to my L20b 68 Wagon. Why? Because no more "moving" parts. More specifically, wear parts. My 1980 200sx dizzy simply wore out, leaving me on the side of the roa...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

While I get this system sorted out I would suggest you do what I did and go to Autosportlabs.com for their very detailed instructions on how to install a Ford EDIS system and Mega Jolt Lite Jr. on your engine with carbs.

Yes, Byron, I'd be glad to do a write up with pictures of the Ford EDIS conversion.
