Re: Datsun 1600/510 headlight rewiring

This is great but the early (68) 1600's had a smaller fuse box and just one fuse for the headlights. I found out the hard way when it blew on a quiet country road. I hit the brakes and fortunately stopped in the middle of the road. The later 1600's had a cunning system with fuses in the power wires ...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi I visit this forum frequently and have been meaning to introduce myself for a while. I am another bitten by the Datsun bug. It started for me in 1973 when I was 19, (yes I am almost an official coffin dodger) anyway back in 1973 my younger brother had just bought a Fiat 125 and it made my Hillman...

Re: Registered Datsuns

I agree there are numerous errors but I think for security reasons the chassis numbers are abreviated. My 1600 sss's are shown with abbreviated chassis numbers but the rego and or rego on hold papers are always correct.

Re: L16/18 Flywheel Bolt Specs

The last time I rebuilt my L18 race motor I bought part number 12315-42L11 from my local Nissan dealer, from memory these are L28 turbo bolts and are slightly longer, I googled the part number, looks like this replaces lots of others and are used in newer motors.

Good luck

Re: 180B

The web site also says cars with confidential addresses are not listed, also written off cars with plates on hold will also be listed. A very worthwhile guide but not 100% accurate. My cars are all listed but none of my 3 x 510 sss's are shown as sss. Pleased to see there are more 710's shown than I...

Re: Wanted - 4.5 x 13 RWD Sunny Steel Rim

Dave
610 and 710 both used 4.5j x 13 rims. If you want to match other rims it may help to upload a pic as there are slight variaions in style. If you can't find closer I should have a 710 wheel.
Good luck Andrew

Re: Gas bonnet struts for 1600

A very good result after our earlier posts I considered the strut tower and thought this isn't going to be that easy..........boy was I wrong, you make it look so easy. I always liked the factory support, simple yet so much better than the fold out arms most cars use. My race car was a problem, the ...
