  1. If you didn't find a starter, the Hi Torque starters for Roadsters has the solenoid clocked correctly. Look at DatsunParts.com John
  2. Buy the high torque starter for the roadster, the solenoid is clocked correctly on that one for the SSS I use it on mine John Lorio
  3. Erich Paul or Tom Neely, they work together and have fabbed new motor mounts. They are tricky and differ significantly right to left.
  4. Sockets for dash light bulbs for 410/411/520 . The NAPA part number is LS6501. They'r about $4.50 at NAPA
  5. OK after getting an instrument panel without any sockets for the dash lights et. al. I went on a search and found a replacement that fits: 5/8" standard ignition 2 terminal socket from STD O'reilly Auto Parts number S503A uses a 194 bulb, you can order online from O'Reilly's Auto Parts John
  6. You need a set of correct wagon tail light lenses, the set you have on are sedan tail light lenses (they have a reflector built in, which the wagon lenses don't ) fun cars! John
  7. Actually the 510 calipers are identical to the SSS calipers except they have metric threads so you you have to fab up a brake line with SaE on the car side and metric on the callipervside. The backing plates are slightly different.
  8. Actually mob dual carb manifold and SU carbs fit on a J13. I'm thinking of doing that on my wagon and bought a set that I dropped on a spare J13
  9. Both my 411s are on the road and driving great. The WPL wagon and the RL sedan. Finding parts took time but they all turned up
  10. I've managed to find all the suspension parts through EBAY and rockauoto. Tie rod ends were easy upper ball joints too lower ball joints took time. You can interchange the LHS and RHS ball joints if you're willing to redrill one hole in the lower control arm. a very expensive option is Carl from New Datsun Parts who sources NOS parts in Japan. He's great to deal with but not cheap. Perhaps you can get another Low ball joint from Cyprus? I'm looking into putting twin SU/hitachi carbs on my WPL wagon using an MGB manifold. I'd be interested if you find an SS 411 down in NZ for the carb linkage and setup. John
  11. The Williams Arizona all datsun show is open for registration. This year there is a class for 411 s and we are trying to get a bunch there. It's a great show and Williams is a neat town not far from the Grand Canyon. Hope to see some 411 s there! I'm bringing two John
  12. Bring it to Williams in October. Really fun show and we are trying to get 411s there. I'm bringing two. I've asked Chris to set up s 411 class due to increasing interest in these card. See nodtalgic Datsun for details.
  13. I think it was bottoming on the bump stops. Never felt like it was bottoming out except for the squirrelly driving. I'm leaving it stock for now.
  14. Ok in middle of night one thing occurred to me. I didn't cut the bump stops. Could that give me these symptoms if the car was bottoming out?
