  1. Welcome to the 520 club.
  2. Welcome to the SAE standard brotherhood. Don’t succumb to the call of Sirens the Metric.....
  3. 521 Hood emblem (pins missing, must attached with 3M double sided body tape) $25 https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/pts/d/datsun-520-and-521-parts/6975640991.html Keith
  4. Autozone will test the alternator for you. That will give the answer of its condition. Keith

    Wiper arms

    I believe LHD wipers rest on the windshield pointed to the right side, and have a kink on the wiper arm about 10 degrees to the left. I believe RHD wipers rest on the windshield pointed to the left side, and have a kink on the wiper arm about 10 degrees to the right. Therefore, LHD and RHD wiper arms are not interchangeable. Keith

    J13 engines

    True, there is much inconsistency in the 'model year" designation in state titles, dealer invoices, service manuals, owners manuals, and brochures. I defer to the VIN plate designation as the standard for month and year. (I do confirm that the stamped engine number and frame number match the VIN plate. I know anything can be forged, but due diligence and care are required when representing a vehicle....especially to other Datsun owners.!!!)

    I defer to the VIN plate, as my states "Model Year 1966", the vin is "L520-002xxx" .

    Smardo, What month in 1965 does your VIN plate state? To my knowledge, the 520 was released for the 1966 model year....as all brochures referenced. Keith
  10. I recently purchased about 200 Toyota brochures and manufacture press packets from the 1960s - 1990s. Are there any Toyota forums where enthusiasts of older Toyotas share the stories of their projects? Thanks, Keith

    A Texas 320

    Very cool! Another J13 in North Texas. Keith
  12. I know you are swimming in the deep end of the pool on this project, whereas I just stay in the shallow end, but would any starter parts form the Metropolitian Nash be useful? I had to source some parts from Kip Motors (http://www.king-cart.com/kipmotor/category=Metropolitan+Electrical+Starter&cart_id=12218.2231&exchange=&exact_match=exact) to complete my J13 rebuild. Keith
  13. Are you lookin for part number 5? https://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun/pickup-1965-1972/electrical-1300-(j13)/distributor Keith
