  3. Crap... why you gotta sell this now @Draker ? When my 620 is painted and tuned I’d totally buy this bad boy.

  4. "Never seen a pre-1968 imported car with factory installed mirrors" to quote you, My 1967 RL411 came with DATSUN factory marked and installed mirror on the Left [driver's] door. The silvering eventually speckeled so I replaced it with a Roberk unit that even fit the factory steel plate mount for the door mirror. Roberk units have an adjust lock screw on the front of the mirror mount, factory adjust lock screw is inside the base of the mount requiring removal of the mirror in order to lock any position adjustment.

  6. It's just not that critical unless the choke jams. It's rather a loose fit anyway. A worn throttle shaft would be different.

  7. Go ahead and post this in the 521 section, no worries. The 521 section is one of the most popular forums and is well read. The guy with the answer may not look in the classifieds. Title it 521/620 seat swap?

  10. Good day. Do you have an l16 water pump pulley? I'm moving to an electric fan on my l20 and need the space that the fan clutch occupies. Cheers.

  11. To work this needs the remote igniter box located above the passenger kick panel beside the glove box. Alternatively you can uses an HEI module from an old GM distributor and mount it beside the coil, but as it is it won't work.

  12. You need to post what year the 520 is, they had different grills over the 520 run, some were single headlight trucks(1 on each side), some had dual headlights(2 on each side), also early 520s had a hole in the bumper for the crank start while the later ones didn't have that hole/option. A MG Midget distributor will fit the J13 engine, and some of them came with electronic ignition, but you will likely need the MG clamp also, I cannot remember if the J13 clamp can be used, so get the MG clamp if you go that route. The clamp on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Distributor-Clamp-for-MGA-MGB-MG-Midget-with-25D-or-45D-Lucas-Distributor/233710568987?hash=item366a3c461b:g:RfoAAOSwaS9fW6~V Just search "MG Midget electronic ignition", some aftermarket distributors are under a $100.00, they had points distributors also but I would go with electronic ignition myself, I believe MGB distributors are the same, but I just search the MG Midget myself, there is not as large of a selection as there used to be, I used to see used ones for cheap.

  14. Looks like an A series on the outside but the electronics inside are not from a Nissan EI distributor. Probably one of those Asian made replacements. If it is actually for an A series the gear can be removed and the bottom from an L series put on to convert it.

  15. I talked to Gerson at KlassicFab JDM yesterday. They have scanned my 68-69 valence, so they have the file & making the tooling to stamp them out is next, but likely 3++ months out. He suggested watching the Datsun 510 forums & Facebook pages, where he typically announces availability of each product. He does NOT keep a list of potential buyers, as that system never worked for him with the air cooled VW people.............that's what he has been manufacturing for 20+++ years! KlassicFab has a VERY good reputation in the VW market for their patch panels & he is currently expanding into the classic Japanese market!

  16. N.L.S.V. Nissan load sensing valve. Allows more brake pressure to the rears as weight is added to the box.

  21. RE: Upgraded to a 5 speed. For the effort, might as well! Why getting rid of the cross member, engine plate and the rad? You'll need them. I think the cross member is turned 180 for the standards to line up the mount bolts and the rad won't know the difference. At least keep as a spare.

  23. They don't rev too high, they may seem to rev too high. Big difference. Do you have a tach? What's 'too high' for you? The torque converter will lower cruise by about 200 RPMs.

  25. Absolutely. Why would Nissan build something that can't be driven on the highway? You're under the impression that an automatic is somehow inferior to a standard. They can be slightly slower on acceleration but will do the same top speed. Automatics have desirable traits too. They don't need left foot right arm coordination to drive, handy if handicapped. Women (no offense) tend to not like the bother of shifting gears and using a clutch. Very handy for in town stop and go.

  26. The good news is this is an automatic. Automatics tend to be survivors because it's hard to abuse them.

  27. Datsun odometers only go to 99,999 and then 'roll over' to 00,000 again. It should have an L18, '74 was the only year that had this engine, but after 46 years it could very easily have been swapped.

  29. Have you looked into shipping cost? I have shipped two 240Z front clips on pallets, via truck freight, to a carrier in Florida, they handled shipping to South America. Happy to find that same carrier info & pass along. I am trying to buy a 521 parts truck right now, that does have a bed on it, just not sure of condition until I have it here. I saw the parts truck 2 years ago, am pursuing to buy it now, because I just bought a 1972 521 with a commercial flat bed on it........I will NOT be converting it back to a standard bed, as I love the flat bed!! PM me if interested! I will NOT hold you committed to this bed, because, again, I will be buying the parts truck if I can get it! I likely won't know for a number of weeks, as it is likely buried in snow, but the Spring melt is coming! TJ Denver Colorado

  34. I adapted Energy rear bump stops to my 620. But I am at a loss to what they were meant for. I'll try to dig up the part number, but they were put on 15 years ago...Long before the 4-link conversion.

  41. There are two types of Electronic Ignition distributors... I mean dizzys. One was used on all Datsuns in '78 and is called the remote igniter and has all the electronic parts in a large box under the dash.like this... It does have an obvious pick up coil under the rotor.... For '79 and '80 the remote igniter box was miniaturized (matchbox) and mounted on the side of the distributor

  44. Are these for your 79 Datsun 720? I have a set of them aftermarket Bumperettes, they are not the best quality, but I would use them if I needed a set, you will have to make a set of brackets to mount them. Also shipping is unknown, so you might be able to have them shipped to you directly from overseas. I can take photos of them if your interested.

  45. Car and truck seats have come a long way in 40 years and the 620 seats weren't comfortable anyway. It would be no great loss to exchange them for much newer bucket seats with proper bolstering, side support and an adjustable lumbar support.

  46. What is wrong with your instrument cluster? The 521 cluster will fit, but it has green turn indicators.

  47. Have you tried Nissan? Riley at Lynchburg Nissan will all at least look it up & order if still available! Rock Auto also lists some under "parking brake cable". Is it just not available any more? TJ

  48. Not bad, but $250 ?? I could see under $175 And I had one of those also, damn runners are fairly small, then open up right before the head. Don't think anyone ever made a true downdraft L4 manifold. All that I've seen have little runners so any dummy can bolt them onto a stock engine, and feel good. Someone sells just the head flanges on eBay that would be fun to play with. A little thick wall aluminum tube, a little aluminum plate, and a little welding, and who knows what you could come up with. How about a tunnel ram :)
