  1. Welp it looks like my time has come also. Broke down and bought a 1200 aluminum radiator since my b210 now leaks. Once I have the 1200 rad in I will see about getting the old copper one repaired. Sucks only having the one car.
  2. What radiator did you purchase and put in your 210.  The width looks better than a 1200 radiator.

  3. Dat521, Thanks much. Sorry for the reply delays, new job, up to Utah for dads birthday among other things. Been busy and had to replace my computer to boot. I am contacting him now.
  4. If you are just wanting a higher amp alternator and have a stock one take it to an alternator shop and have it rewound for higher amperage.
  5. Your door handle was broken exactly as mine. Pulled on a frozen door and the handle snapped. Been looking for a while now for a replacement handle.
  6. Mike, You misunderstood my post. I am asking people to check the measurements of Datsuns they own, so I can see what fits. I have already hunted the world for an actual B210 handle, so now I need to know if another model of datsun uses the same size handle.
  7. I need a door handle that can fit my 75 B210. The measurements are as follows. Mount Bolt center to center 90mm Hinge center to center 125mm Total Length 155mm. I know the 240z wont fit (I bought one and it doesn't), which means a 510 door handle will not fit. But can you all check the measurements on your 1200, Ute, Truck and see if these measurements are similar? Thank you in advance. James.
  8. The 5 speed is stock if it's a dogleg pattern (FS5W63A). Came out only in the hatchbacks for 77-78 and maybe 76.
  9. The electronic distributor from a 79-82 Datsun 210 will work fine on a 75 B210. If the electronic box on the side of the distributor gives out, Nissan replacements are about $100. But the old style GM module for mid 70's chevies can be used instead. There is a post about it somewhere on the web. And the chevy modules only cost $10.
  10. You can also find a speed trap sign and hold a steady speed of say 40MPH and see what the sign says. That will give you an idea of how much your car is off at a given speed. A general ratio is 1 mph per tire size increase up or down. The B210 came out with 13" tires, going up to a 14" standard size tire means the speedometer will read 1MPH over for every 10 MPH speed, and 1 MPH downward for every 10MPH speed if dropping down to a 12" tire. And yes I know it seems not every scientific but that general rule has worked for me for decades.
  11. I sourced a front windshield via a local shop that gets them from Mexico. Originally that was in '08 but about 4 years ago I had the same shop replace the windshield due to a crack. See if any of the shops in your area are able to source from there. The shop I used is AutoGlass Distributors (520) 573-1616 507 W Ajo Way, Tucson AZ. Give them a call if you need to and find out their connections maybe.
  12. I put in a 90 amp alternator from the 89-91 Nissan Maxima. I had to have an alternator shop put a V-Belt pulley on it, and they gave me a plug for the maxima alternator, then I had to cut part of the alterator mount area on the motor to fit I it I think. Works a treat though and is Internally Regulated. But if your car is electronic ignition you should already have an IR alternator, in which case just take the factory alternator to an alternator shop and have them rewire it for 90 amps at idle.
  13. Alright, since people seem to still be posting to this thread I might as well mention. If you bend up a 10mm box end to a 90 degree angle as seen in previous pictures, you can grind the outside circle of the box head down sufficiently to fit onto the 10mm nuts that hold the Hitachi down. The addition of using a magnet to magnetixe the mounting bolts and the nuts you are putting on is also helpful.
  14. The stock hitachi is a PITA to get off. Bending a 10mm wrench to 90 degrees helps a lot. Use the box end, but you will need to grind the outer edge of the box end ring down a bit for best fit (just a bit a time until it fits well). The weber 32/36 dgev if purchased for a A14 engine should work out of the box jet wise. Start by ensuring your float is adjusted to the correct measurements. 33mm holding vertically from edge of carb to bottom most point of float. 50-51mm when held horizontally (I think). Find the Weber tuning guide posted somewhere here in the forums and read, read, read. So you have the whole process down pat in your head. 1 1/2 turns out of the idle circuit to start with. Once the car is warmed up, turn the idle circuit out until the idle gets rough, then back in until it stumbles, then about halfway between those 2 points. Be sure your timing is at base 10-12 degrees advanced before starting this. And put in all new spark plugs. Then follow the rest of the tuning guide. If it takes more than 2 turns out for the idle circuit the jet is too small, but I doubt you will have that issue if there are no vacuum leaks and the float is adjusted correctly. Since you have no emissions you will want an EGR delete plate. Also premake you spare paper gaskets, as you will be changing these about every 6 months. As mentioned above the adapter bolts do like to come loose. I like to take the copper gasket spray and coat the paper and let it dry, helps prevent fuel from wetting the paper gaskets. You can keep the ceramic piece from the hitachi mounted, this will help keep some heat from transfering to the weber. I actually keep all the base mount pieces from the hitachi underneath my adapter. As for power, well if its and automatic nothing can help it. If it is a manual, maybe 5 more horsepower, better throttle response. And depending on driving style gas mileage may go up, or may go down.

    Tie Rod question.

    I am wondering if the tie rods for the 79-92 210 will fit a 75 B210. From looking at the photos on rockauto the 210 tie rods are longer than the B210 rods, which makes sense as the 210 is wider than a B210. But I would think the diameter of the holes would be the same on the center link, the 210 assembly would just have to be screwed down further. Any one have thoughts on this, or first hand knowledge?
