  1. OR, ya'll could bring 'em to Williams in October. You know where Williams is right? Just leave your house, go to Flagstaff and turn left.
  2. ZeroSports, Damn that car looks good! OP hasn't posted on here since 2012. I MAY have a pic or two of this car somewhere.....almost positive he took that to the Multi State Datsun Classic in 2012 and we met up with him. Please start a thread and post up some more pics of that beautiful beast. EDIT: Oops, just stumble on to you thread, gotta go look now.
  3. Just curious if you have looked at the mounting points of the caliper you just received. I have serious doubts it would be the same but hey, it's there. If it were me, I would look for brake parts from 79-80 210. The calipers on a 210 are the exact same design and 1200 and B210. Comparatively (spelling, maybe not even a word), The caliper for a 210 (the one I have is off of a 07/78 210, making it a 79) is just a bit more beefy than the 1200 caliper. B210: Rt Fnt Caliper: 41000-U6701 Front Rotor: 40206-U6700 Front Br Pad Kit: 41060-U6728 210 (Model B310): Rt Fnt Caliper: 41000-U6701 Front Rotor: 40206-U6700 Front Br Pad Kit: 41060-U6728 source: Nissan Fast catalog I can post pictures of the '79 calipers that I have here (no they are not for sale, their destiny is a 1200), but that will have to be tomorrow.
  4. No, get parts for a 210. This "tag" that you speak of is part of the VIN code and or body code.
  5. It applies to both, me thinks.

    So, after a long cold winter this is still up on stands. I am, however, close to putting her back on the ground (and street). The grey coupe is up on stands and ready for a little refresh also. The 5speed I had for the grey car turned out to only really work in 1st and reverse so the 4speed will go back in it for now. Or maybe rebuild the 5 speed and add an A15...time will tell.
  7. Just ran out and took some pics. At the back of the caliper, depending on how far you have taken it apart. Make sure this little doo dad is not keeping the cylinder/piston from moving back. If you look at the bleeder nipple, just above it you can see the metal "tang" that somewhat holds things together. The cylinder/piston could possibly slide that far back or until it bottoms out on the rear opening on the bracket. From a different angle. The cylinder/piston is fixed, it is actually the bracket that "floats". You may already know all of this but I thought I would share what limited knowledge I have
  8. So, that is a "floating" caliper. The cylinder may well be pushed all of the way in. The bracket that surrounds the cylinder/piston is designed for the piston/cylinder to slide on. My thinking is that the cylinder/piston needs to move back on the bracket. If I remember correctly, I had a bit of a bitch kitty doing brakes like this the first time. Also, in the pic you have of them standing on end, with the locator pin holes at the top, it looks like the new one is taller than the old one. That could just be an optical illusion.
  9. Welcome to the circus. Think I know a guy in New Mexico named Steve....drives a roadster. Probably a lot of guys in New Mexico named Steve. But I only know one guy, in New Mexico, named Steve that has a Datsun. And there ain't a whole lot of Datsun's here.
  10. It may be possible that the B210 uses a "floating" caliper similar to the 1200. If I remember correctly (old guy, suffer from CRS), I had the same issue with a 1200. The caliper on a 1200 is basically a 2 piece thing. The "hydraulic thingy" is in the main body of the caliper which slides on the mounting bracket. When I first looked at it I did not realize how it worked. Being that the B210 is mostly the new 1200 (back then) there are some similarities. To post pics on this site you will need a hosting site like Imgur. Just don't use Photobucket...….we don't like them and they don't like us. If we could get some pics it would help. Also, I think that suspension from a 79-80 210 would work but I am not sure how much would need to be transferred.
  11. Um, are you guys hiring? Got 26 years Nissan parts experience. Damn, you're in WA. Can't do it.
  12. Damn Charlie.....Just damn.
  13. Actually, I think I meant pics of the Telecaster...….
  14. I know of at least one other member on here that has dabbled (or maybe it was a large part of his career) in guitars. I have played on and off since sometime in the 1970's. Not really all that good at it and no one really would want to hear me play. But sometimes it is fun to turn on the old tube type Fender amp and rattle the windows a little. You are going to post pics of the Strat; right?
  15. That Lincoln...….Kelmo's dream car. Thanks for posting that.
  16. Just a tiny bit miffed I didn't get to see this car in person. But you're still welcome to stop by the White Trash Garage any time you are passing through. This next one should be good to watch.
  17. Them wheel part #'s should start "40300".....30400-XXXXX is transmission related. A little dyslexia happening there.(sarcasm/smartass font).
  18. Awww fuck, I can't take it anymore. I just can't keep up. Do collect those Dairy Delivery, think they are kinda cool. May have that yellow one, but pretty sure I have it in gray....maybe.
  19. I didn't listen to it but wow, Ratwagon shows up. What The French......toast.
  20. Hey man, I'm not gay...my boyfriend is. Wait, what?
  21. Seems that we have done this before, but what the hell. Back in the early '90's I worked at a dealership and one of the managers used to add "mo" to the end of everyone's name. Some times he would drop a few letters of the end of your name some times not. Billmo, Scottmo, Gregmo, Garmo, and that led him to call me Kelmo. For some reason, it has stuck with me all these years. I partially blame Ratsun and 1200.com. Really glad we didn't have a guy named Howard working there. Not sure how well putting "mo" at the end of that would work cuz you would have to loose a couple letters.
  22. Had trouble working long cylindrical objects, did she?
