Re: summer is comming! an air conditioning saga

I'm a fan of EZ-Clip fittings for AC work. Go see New-line hose, they have all the fittings you need and can help you adapt to your equipment. New-line.com

I've done several Z and 1 510 using vintage air evap boxes (compaq and mini) and love EZ-CLip hoses. DIY, smaller hose, tight bends.

Re: B210 brake booster install

Many new vehicles are packed so tight under the hood that they put things like washer bottles in the wheel wells and provide access panels in the wheel wells to get to common service items in the engine bay that cannot be accessed without an engine pull. A couple of small carefully placed round hole...

Looks like even though the updates vary when you look at the 2 and 4 door pages, the same parts numbers are used.

Don't be afraid to bend the hinge a little to get it more centered.

Re: WTB: Datsun 510 stock pinion flange R160 diff

I'll happily spin one off of the far-too-numerous R160's I find myself with, if you can find anything closer to home.
Drop me an email to z240@shaw.ca if you find yourself in need.

Re: can anyone tell me how to identify an L16-L18-L20

A little flat pad on the block will have a stamp, either L16, L18 or L20. Next to it is another flat spot with engine serial number

Re: Rear swing arm bolt

Bolt very tight. But you have to remove the peened over flats on that nut before doing anything else. Dremel cut off wheel is my weapon of choice. And a much longer pipe on that wrench once you get that nut flat thing handled. And maybe some very large friends to stand on the swing arm, or a much lo...

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

Love to see a video of that spark plug hanging in free air with nice sparks happening as you crank it. I'd have to believe in magic again.

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

The plug body has to be connected to ground to get a spark. I don't understand how disconnecting it from ground could possibly result in a spark. Details and pictures will help

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

If it truely is a no-rust car, then it is a great price.

I would not buy it without a very thorough inspection however. Even the most apparently 'rust free' Datsun's I've seen normally have a surprising amount once you sand blast them to their bare-all state. Proceed with caution.

Re: Rock Auto Shipping to Canada Cost?

I Rock RockAuto all the time. No surprises, no hidden fees. And faster than ever. I usually get stuff in 2-3 days now. Choose the second least expensive option, which is Fedex. It's just a tiny bit more than the cheap option and much faster. I know my delivery guy by his first name already.
