Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Where did you end up with this? Curious...... I drove it about 30 miles Saturday. Then about 10 miles Sunday. It’s does drive better with the new ignition points. Haven’t put the plugs, wires, rotor in yet. I have came down with a fever yesterday but I will when I get well. BUT the car does not nea...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

This is great directions and very much appreciated. I’m going to do this right now but this screw here keeps running itself in and changing the idle. I’m going to put blue locktite on it or a locking nut on it to hold it in position. It has like very low resistance where I can turn it with my finger...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

When you say condenser, may capacitor be another name for that?
My model does have a resistor mounted on the fender btw. This is a 72 wagon auto.

And do make sure you change the condenser at the same time - they fail and wear out just as frequently as the points.

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Yes that is a ac lol. I had it blowing 38 degrees F at one point. I retrofitted it for R134a. But disconnect it because the clutch pully bearings were making noise. But to your point, I didn’t know the emissions were blocked off with the models with ACs. I will check all that as well thanks is that ...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Alright I just set the timing. I started at the deepest cut with the white paint and went over two notches. See pics. I just took the car out for a 20 minute spin and it ran fine. Hopefully the points and timing was the issue because like I said before, the problem is sporadic. I’ll let the car cool...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

I have not seen a six grove pulley in any of my datsun books.... but the majority of L series I have are single pointer with a 6 grove pulley ? 5 tdc 5 10 15 20 set @ 12 to 14 on regular Thank you for checking your books. I will set timing once I get home today. Then I’ll take it out for a spin and...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

I guess a way to check would be to take off the valve cover and line up the cam timing lines for tdc and see where the crank lines up at?

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Update. Replaced points. Set points to 0.020 . Ordered new plugs, wires, rotor and cap, coming in the mail. Checked timing. Have confusion that I hope someone can help me with. First two pics I’ll post are of the repair manual. It states in blue that the TDC is all the way to the left. But why is th...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Thank you James! I’m in the city or Azusa, just off the 210 freeway and Azusa Ave. yeah I hope I get this running right. Whenever I’m running it and it’s running fine, and the bogging hits out of nowhere, man it’s such a bummer. I have to put flashers on and takes me forever to pull over to the side...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Here is a better angle of that point. Doesn’t look too bad at this point of view. Will still replace them. Also I wasn’t aware of the importance of the plug brand. Thank you I will get the correct ones tomorrow. I must have just went into AutoZone and got the cheapest ones. This was almost 10 years ...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Yeah they don’t look good. I will replace them no doubt about that. And here are clear pics to clear up what that vacuum line was for, you were absolutely correct. Hose goes up to the air filter housing to a temp controlled valve that sucks in warmer air around the exhaust manifold. I did take off t...
