    Whaty are people using to host images.

    What they said.
  2. Any idea where to find rebuild kits? I'd just assume clean and reuse the original housings if internals are available. If NLA, are kits from other models compatible? Many thanks, Derek
  3. Hi Folks, Been a while since I posted, but wanted to let you know that more manuals have been uploaded to datsun510.com, along with some old articles and such. We've got more on the way, but are starting to get into the more rare/expensive ones such as the Z cars. Always happy to take donations of missing manuals if you have them laying around or a couple $$$ to purchase more. The process is destructive, so you'll get a manual back without the spine, but it makes scanning much, much easier. Happy downloading, Derek

    What is a concent valve?

    Doh! Nevermind. Figured out it was the engine compartment lamp.

    What is a concent valve?

    Reading the 411 wiring diagram so I can unbodge the PO's work. Never heard of a concent valve and cannot find any info. Thanks, Derek
  6. My 411 came with 3 steel wheels that have 3 small prongs on the surface at 120 degrees separation and 2 steel wheels that just have the raised area with 4 humps. Both types can be seen in my gallery here: http://datsun510.com/index.php?/gallery/album/772-1966-pl411/. Does anyone have an image of the stock wheels so I know if I need 2 or 3 replacements? Thanks, Derek
  7. Yep, you guys are right. Was just trying to get it movable, not really drivable. Will bite the bullet and go new. Thx.
  8. Pulled my drums to rebuild the front wheel cylinders since they were frozen. One shoe became delaminated, but all the others are just fine. I really don't want to buy new brakes for a single shoe. Anybody have a spare used one they would sell or donate? Thanks, Derek

    Need help identifying Datsun diff.

    Thanks all. I asked him for housing details, spline count, and axle length and am waiting for answers.
  10. Angry Lance sent me this pic. I have no idea from which model it hails. Any ideas?

    1966 411 Tire Options

    Doh, location added. Thanks for the information. Am sure the shocks are wasted, so will add those to the list.

    1966 411 Tire Options

    Hi Folks, I just picked up a stock 411 and it needs new tires. From what I read the stock size converted is 165/80R-13. First question is whether 175 will fit those rims and not rub the fender. Second question is what tire is decent in that size? Everything I see says "trailer tire" and provides no specs. If they are all the same general garbage will just go on price. Thanks, Derek
  13. Edekalil, I just responded to your form submit, but looks like you are all set. Quick instructions for posting are here: "You sign up for an account, log in, then you can just choose the "+Create" pull down on the upper right and choose "Gallery Image" from the drop down. It will then ask which gallery. "Members Albums Category" will allow you to upload to an existing gallery or create a new one. From there you just use the uploader, add descriptions and such, and you are set." Let me know if this does not work easily for you. Thanks, Derek
  14. This is actually the exact same software (InvisionPower) that Ratsun uses. Only I have not activated the forum, calendar, or classifieds modules since that is covered here (and elsewhere). There is the Gallery, Downloads, Video, and User Map activated so it does not compete with any other Datsun forum. It's pretty easy. You sign up for an account, log in, then you can just choose the "+Create" pull down on the upper right and choose "Gallery Image" from the drop down. It will then ask which gallery. "Members Albums Category" will allow you to upload to an existing gallery or create a new one. From there you just use the uploader, add descriptions and such, and you are set. I do not like the interface as much as Photopost, but it works fine. If we move to custom templates I'll play with some changes, but for now, it is stable and working, which means I really don't want to touch it other than backups and security patches. There's already over 30,000 images on it - mostly of 510s or other Datsuns - and many users hotlink from it. Without sharing user databases I cannot make a single sign-on between Ratsun and Datsun510.com, but maybe someone from Ratsun will want to discuss that in the future.
  15. Any and all. Pretty much any image or video format will work. It's using GD2 for image processing which supports all major MIME types. It will support video as well.
