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

I would start with using the deepest cut, painted white as 0 - and then set the timing at 10 (2 marks over). If its 5 degrees advanced - you will know it with pinging, but I'm 99% that the last multi groove pulley was set up this way (both my current cars have single mark on the pulley and the sawto...

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

The points are probably a major point of your troubles. Get that and the timing sorted and then mess with the carb. While I agree with Mike on the NGK - I have run champions and they work well.

Travelled Through

Hello all - I just got back from a two week trip through your (seems like most of the members are in western Canada) neck of the woods. I had been through 30 years ago as a teenager, and decided I would take my teenagers up. Most people would cringe at the idea of two weeks, 4200 miles with a wife a...

Re: Tail Light Protection

In a related but different concept - I have always thought it would be cool to make a metal cover as the Coupes have (I'm going from memory here) to protect the tail light from items in the trunk. I'm assuming no one has done this? Might be worth a look as the tail light parts are fragile and seem t...

Re: New to datsun 510 project owner, greetings to all

If you add your location in your profile (not in a post) then we will know where you are. Wives and 510's can co-exist if you are smart. Search how to post photos - as we need to see what you've got.
