  1. Sorry to hear of your health and sress issues. Hope you find some calm and pain free moments each day gene knight.
  2. Sorry to hear about this accident. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
  3. Northern AZ I did some growing up in the 70’s-80’s downtown Flag and Winona area. Enjoyed watching a youtube video that tells about factory supported Datsun mechanic training to some members of the Hopi tribe, back in the day. Seams like such an obscure thing to support. I was less than 16 when I lived there but now wondering if there remains an untapped stash of Datsun parts.

    My 1971 521

    In case you missed http://dimequarterly.blogspot.com/2012/02/tech-how-to-l-series-cylinder-head.html
  5. When you adjust the idle air/fuel are you starting at full lean? After it dies when idling what does it take to start it back up?
  6. You said “when i put my finger over this port it will idle.” Plug that port. Then put something in the snorkel to keep the flap open, maybe a screw from the outside.
  7. There is far too much 5spd swap information to get reposted here. Use google and your subject followed by ratsun. Here is a short clip that i collected and stored in my notes. I can’t give credit to the author but it is ratsun.net material. “ou use the fork that goes with the transmission, you use the throwout bearing collar that goes with the clutch cover(pressure plate), the disc should match the clutch cover.” ...the slave cylinder should also match the trans and fork.
  8. A person could build that car for $10k over time right ?
  9. $9k or maybe you could trade to a millennial for a Honda that has a book value of $12-15k
  10. Amazon will deliver the Shell oil that is recommended by the braintrust that we have here at ratsun net.
  11. Vacuum advance should be connected right on one of the carbs, not the manifold. When not in use should be blocked off.
  12. I had similar issues with a stock 240. The problem was vacuume leaks. Once i had that sorted, carbs synced with ztherapy tool and dvd, issues were gone.
  13. Well, now tastey cheeseburgers start just a little bit closer to your mouth
  14. My 521 requires headlights, maybe just running lights I can’t recall, to be in the on position, and hood open.
  15. I used to ride my bicycle to Loper’s and dream of installing all those hotrod parts on my car one day. Roots blower, tunnel ram, dual predators and double pumping holleys, I wish I had rolled by your shop when i was a kid. Kudos sir on your commitment to the imports.
  16. Learn from experience and stop repeating the things that create friction. <— Works with racing
  17. I've collected all the bits & parts for a dogleg swap on the 521, but there's no issues with the OE 4 spd. That's my ice cream just sitting there smiling at me. EDIT: Arizona native still living in new england #FML
  18. The local bicycle shop was able to cut to my measured length a new cable for the hood latch. I replaced both the cable and the sheathing. Walmart probably carries replacement bicycle brake cables.
  19. BMW 2002, Flag style. Acquired a pair, only mounted the drivers' side.
  20. Welcome to Ratsun.net
  21. Hahahaaa DP the Datsun bug got ya !!! It may not be a 16. Do you know what year 620? Is the seller claiming all original?
  22. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/sizes/results.jsp?diameter=14
  23. Manual and auto use different things. Flywheel and flexplate.
  24. In the first two photos I posted I tried to show the alignment of the throttle cable and bracket. I drilled a new hole and adjusted the angle of the bracket in the bench vise. That may help your application. Not much down time involved :thumbup:
