Paolo's color wiring diagrams available on

Post by dg510 »

Hi Folks,

Paolo Musante/Axsys Technologies Ltd. has made available for download his hi-resolution color wiring diagrams for the Datsun 510. These are vector-based PDFs with layers, allowing you to zoom in very far with great detail, as well as having the ability to turn on/off certain wire colors or components, depending on whether your PDF viewer software allows layered functions. Paolo sells these printed as dual-sided 11x17 laminated reference cards for easy reference. There are 8 PDF files in the set including:

#1 – 1968 510 Sedan
#2 – 1968 510 Wagon
#3 – 1969 510 Sedan
#4 – 1969 510 Wagon
#5 – 1970-72 510 Sedan Automatic
#6 – 1970-72 510 Wagon Automatic
#7 - 1970-72 510 Sedan Manual
#8 - 1970-72 510 Wagon Manual

Downloads available at or if you would like a high quality laminated hard copy contact Paolo directly on the bluebirds mailing list.

Thanks, Derek

I have his full set! FYI he never created the early 1970 510 (first 6 mo's production) or the later 1973 diagrams. I have worked on both an early 1970 & a 1973 over the years & they ARE different! That said, if you buy one of his for one of these two cars, you WILL find discrepancies in wire color codes & actual physical plugs, but are still useful. All of the other diagrams, by application, have come in VERY handy!

1972 521 flat bed
1972 510 4dr parts car
1974 620 parts truck
1980 720 parts truck
1965 Mustang GT Coupe
2009 Toyota Matrix S AWD

LOTS of 510 parts!

Yes, I agree, my true 1973 has thrown me some curves over the years as the diagram does not match my car in some instances.

The diagrams are worth their weight in gold!
