  1. Hope ya'll safe and datsun outa harm! It's insane out there!!!

  2. Man what happened I' was offline for the later half of 19, and on/off this year but it seems like like the regulars I chatted w/ are gone, hiatus? Got tired of BS or life happened? I do hope to reconnect. Anyway good night ya'll. 

    1. Draker


      The OG's always come back... if just to check in and check out.

      Hay, hope ya doing great. Good to know.

  3. Got a 521 the sec I seen er. O the joy of pre-smog!
  4. I prefer the square eye grill, but round is growing on me. Wish it was a stick. It's an Auto, A15. Got the head back last night, it was 7/1000's off in 1 place. It's looking fresh and almost ready to drop. Blocks next and parts were ordered today.
  5. It popped up the day after I got mine and I was in the same town too, still don't regret it. Should be a great dats for someone.
  6. Progress: Currently I've got the block taken apart for new new gaskets. Clean up and freshen up the head, etc.. Trans is dry and seal looks clean. Carby looks like it was replaced or rebuilt sometime which is great but who knows. Interior is in great shape so nothing there to do. First 210 that has water tight seals! They are definitely hard to get so that's a bonus. Hoping to get er done soon. List of things not, not to do: Fuel tank/ delivery system cleaning. Head to the machine shop. Order gaskets.
  7. I apologize for leaving ya hanging. My og flickr used for Yoko isn't accessible, so I created a fresh one. The process is slow but here's some.
  8. What, another 210?! jəkZ? I like to name em. But why!!!! This will surely end up with random chatter and some pics or at least I hope, as we endeavor into the mystery within. Back Story: Scrolling though CL I saw a post for a 210 wagon. Said it previously ran and timing rattled so he tore into it but never finished. It sat and well ended up on CL of course, as projects usually do. Sounds good to me. It's local enough (7hrs round trip) and I haven't yet, owned the wagon variant. Just the others on the line up so this will be awesome. Contacted owner and arranged I'd pick er u
  9. 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.
  10. Yup. Funds are going into the future camper.
  11. 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. P12584 by cad lab, on Flickr P32424 by cad lab, on Flickr This concludes my ownership and the end of an era, so to speak. Thank you for your support and criticism. P.S. I'm not leaving, I'll still be around.
  12. Sweet deal: https://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/d/classic-datsun-510-wagon/6397080628.html
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Heater control valve opened up nicely. No issue there. It's just to clean out debris like leafs.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.

  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. The 80's called, said they wanted some luxury. Looks like my brother went out and got a 86 camry as his first vehicle. thr by cad lab, on Flickr It'll be some nice company for the two.
  23. Drove up to Willits Friday, devastation just awful. Can't even imagine the scope of Santa Rosa. RIP to the souls. Firefighters, Thank You! Fire Camp at Sonoma County Fairgrounds: https://www.facebook.com/DodrillPhoto/videos/10155732345982145/
  24. Been chaos in the neighboring towns b/c of the fires, so not much has been done. Not a single stall and real close to 287k. I did located the dealership where she was sold though. Before/ Present day: TFB by cad lab, on Flickr DBF by cad lab, on Flickr Currently investigating past ownership's. I'd love to get some oics and stories, so a trip may be afloat.
