  1. Thanks for all your input guys. I was hoping for a quick fix. Specially since I already have a gauge cluster from a manual B210. I will take the pinion gear out and count the teeth and note the color of it. I will also measure how fast it is reading at 50mpg on the highway. Once I have that info I will share it here so the problem solving process can continue. I appreciate the help. Thanks
  2. A while back, I did a transmission swap on my 78 B210 (from automatic to a 5 speed dog-leg). After that my speedo has been clocking me about 5-7 miles faster on the highway. I know I can change the speedo pinion gear in the transmission for something with less or more teeth in order to fix the problem. My issue is that I cannot find a proper speedo pinion gear. My question is the following. What if I change the gauges cluster? Would that fix the issue? I am assuming that the speedometer gauge is calibrated different in the automatic car and the manual 5 speed car. Thanks in advance for you input.
  3. You can work with the RHD ones. I done it before. With small adjustments in order to fix the angle.
  4. Here is a set. San Diego CA. Not mine. He is asking for $40 for the pair. Don't know if his willing to ship. https://offerup.co/ttr8u1eoPL
  5. I might make it to this one. I have a lot of B210 parts my wife would like to see disappear. Also some Roadster parts. - Two A14 part engines - Two R16 part engines

  8. Here is a link that will take you to a site with the wiring diagrams for all B210 and210's. http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/datsun-210-b210-wiring-diagrams.html
  9. I remember seeing someone post the wiring diagram for the 210. I would try to get a pdf copy of it. Take a look and compare, do this before you start replacing parts. Its fairly easy to read. Good luck and welcome to ratsun.

  11. Yes, there is a small button somewhere. I have a detail diagram of how the AC is connected. I can scan it and send it to you.

    B210 Needs To Go!

    Doug is an awesome guy! I purchased several parts from him. I am glad someone is buying his built.
  13. That is a good question. Mechanical vs electric The interwebs say, go electrical b/c of easy installation and the removal of possible oil spills dude to bad or faulty plastic lines. Thoughts? What about brand? Anyone can recommend a brand for the gauge?
