  1. Hi Folks, I just uploaded a slew of wiring diagrams to datsun510.com. These are a combination of FSM and Mitchell. There are over 60 available in the Downloads section after you log in with many more coming next week. These are all original scans and not nicked from the web or other folks. As such, the FSM were scanned at 200DPI and the Mitchell at 150DPI. There's also been quite a bit of cleanup to the images including sizing and splicing the Mitchell halves as well as the standard rotate, crop, resize, etc. FSM files are mostly between 85MB-100MB and can be zoomed in quite a bit with higher
  2. Great idea. I found some on fleabay for $53, which is a drag, but already bought them and rebuilt the cylinders. Will do the swap at some point when I install Mike's front brake kit. Thanks for the idea though for when these inevitably fail.
  3. No, I'm 4 on the floor for now.
  4. Went to bleed the brakes today and the rear drivers side has a puddle. Pulled the wheel cylinder and the seal has a huge chunk out of it. Great. I rebuilt these just a year ago with almost no miles on the car. Crappy rubber I figure. At any rate, is there a good seal kit available? I only see stuff on eBay from unknown origin. Napa or Raybestos or whatever else would be great. Thanks, Derek
  5. Ah, you folks are awesome! Thanks for all the info. Sure beats pulling parts off the car. Derek
  6. Howdy folks, Am tired of the felt front cover seal leaking, so want to modify to use a rubber style seal. Does anyone have a J13 crank pulley laying around that can measure the diameter of the seal surface? I'd rather not go through the hassle of pulling the one on the car if possible. Also, there was a thread here (can't find it now) about someone that did a front seal modification on a J13. I think it was for a 520, but again, not finding it in search. They may have listed the seal part number. Thanks, Derek
  7. The phase angles can be run at 0 degrees and you will want slope angle to be less than 3 degrees at full extension of the suspension (not jacked up off the ground, but what you believe will be the extent of your suspension travel while driving). With a fixed center like in a 510 it is not good to run both at 0 degrees, but with a live axle you will have movement constantly changing the slope angle. You should also triangulate the lateral (side to side) alignment of the centerline of the crank to the tailshaft as one plane and the input and axis of the pinion as the other plane. This can't be d
  8. Let me know if someone has an OEM rebuildable core available. This would be the one with the circlip holding in the spool. I just pulled mine to rebuild it and realized it was an aftermarket, so the seals won't fit. Would rather have an original than fit another rebuilt aftermarket unit. Thanks, Derek
  9. Howdy folks, Am seeing a lot of eBay ads for J12/J13/J15/J16 fuel pumps, but the pump looks different than my 1966 411 J13. Anyone sure if they are the same? Mine can't keep up with demand and needs replacing, so want to verify before buying. Thanks, Derek
  10. Thanks. I'll see if I can get a spare Roadster one to test. Otherwise I found a couple places that will rebuild it.
  11. Looks like mine has bitten the dust (1966 P411 J13). Wiring and gauge (and voltage reg) are fine as a short between the black and yellow wires runs the gauge to past full. Any idea of there are compatible replacements from other cars? I'm not seeing any 411 models on my searched. Thanks, Derek
  12. Howdy, my 66 sedan has some hokey PO straps bolted to the rear floor. Does anyone have good pics of the stock seat belts for the sedan? Any idea of donors or choices? Thanks, Derek

    Looking for a NAPZ EFI intake manifold and throttle body.


  14. Holy sh*t. Just pulled the sender and looked in the tank. They must have pressurized it heavily because the tank has pulled away from the inner baffles. It hasn't broken the spot welds, but that has got to be more than 4PSI.
  15. Thanks. Mine is definitely bloated and more round. I guess the pressure check must have done it. I appreciate the pics and will carefully try to reshape it.
