    The other reason I did so was b/c I've got another 210 with the deeper yellow color that I wanted. There's a pic posted earlier in this blog if memory serves... I've got an L-series ready to drop once I get the correct cross-member. That's a story for another day.

    Yoko's onto new ownership and a new journey. New owner is informed of the blog, maybe he'll continue this? I hope so. Only time will tell. She's now in the Cameron Park area by Sacramento.

I'm not leaving, I'll still be around.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    I'd imagine it's too long an engine to fit without cutting firewall, etc. L16/L18/L20b do fit with minimal work I've seen. KA/SR do as well.

    I've bought myself an infamous 87 vanette. Don't think I'll post on it yet since I haven't picked it up. Saw the posting come up on CL and didn't hesitate. I've got an issue, I get it. When was the last time you've seen one? I sure as hell have never. Anyway, b/c I've got another 210 and now a van I've decided to let Yoko go. I prefer someone else daily er than let er sit. So we'll see how this goes.

    Heater control valve opened up nicely. No issue there. It's just to clean out debris like leafs.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    Man I'd dig A/C but don't want to molest er. So... I'll keep my sauna instead. Still awesome! Question: I'm currently dealing with getting the heater working. Do you know if the dash has to be removed for the entire heater assembly to be taken out for diagnosis?

    P.S. Stalling Resolved. 1k miles, couple fuel'ups and I can say I've finally fixed the stalling issue. Not the carb. Not the fuel system. The only things I've done was replace ALT and clean the contacts on the distributor coil. As weird as it sounds it's been running way better. Hope that helps someone.

    Been some time since I last posted. The rainy cold season has arrived and with it so has some issues :frantics: . Diving into getting the heater working. So far I've gotten the shut valve opened. Changed fuses and inspected the wiring. Got high speed (#3) to finally work. Defroster has heat now. Resistor will be need to be inspected, lower speeds are nonexistent. I'll be taking the motor out to grease and clean out debris if any tomorrow.

    Thanks, datsunfreak. Install was not plug'n play. but then again what is. New ALT is in my opinion very "cheap" but works. Sizes are darn near the same. Bottom bracket bolt holes needed to be drilled out to 1/2" on zx ALT. That's it, all else was the same. P1030688 by cad lab, on Flickr P1030689 by cad lab, on Flickr Stock ALT will be kept as a reparable backup. That's it for now.

    LoL. What a day it was! On my way back from Calistoga, I got stranded on the roadside. All was well till I noticed the fuel and temp needles not reading. I ignored it and kept driving, few miles more and she started acting-up. Misfiring, pedal to the floor and barley any power. Finally total loss and she shut off @30mph. Weird. Got off the road and tried cranking er over. Nothing. So I get out, pop the hood and check out the bay. Nothing out of the ordinary and no stange smells. All looked good. I open the driver door again and notice no beeping bell. Dead Batt Maybe? Now I have to mention, I drove on Thursday to Esparto dead at night. Horrid rain ya couldn't see 10 feet with high beams. So all accessories were on high, pulling quite the juice. Close to half way I did see the Batt light come on briefly. Got home and drove to town the next morning with no issue. So I called a friend, got a good batt and threw it in. Started right up. Let er run for a bit, disconnected the batt and she dies. Yup, alternator is suspect. Drove the 10 miles home without issue. Checked all connections and cleaned all terminals. Belt is tight. Double checked the alt by disconnecting the batt and same thing, it dies. So it must of overloaded last night, and called it quits. Then again it's got well over 200k so that could be it too. I've done some reading on the below link and seems like an upgrade might be possible. http://community.ratsun.net/topic/30652-re-wiring-the-alternator-a-series-with-l-alt-urgent/ From looking at pics it looks doable. Totally guessing but is a 50A to a 60A going to damage fuse's or melt wiring? 210alt by cad lab, on Flickr 280zxalt by cad lab, on Flickr Also does the "P" connection on the bottom ALT need to be wired? Is it used on the 280z?
