  1. I just uncovered the owner's manual for a 1971 510 with a warranty card issued to Patrick G. Seymour, Jr. of Snohomish, WA. Does anyone know if Patrick is still an active Datsun owner? Thanks, Keith

    J13 rebuild options.

    Do you have a machine shop nearby that could give you some recommendations? Keith

    J13 gasket kit

    Grindstaff (https://www.grindstaffengines.com) bought out Motorpower (http://motorpower.net/pricing/j15.html) and may have the gasket set you need. Keith
  4. Some BMC B-Series engine parts interchange. A good resource is Kip Motors http://www.king-cart.com/kipmotor/category=Metropolitan+Engine+Cylinder+Head&cart_id=12218.5465&exchange=&exact_match=exact Keith
  5. Per 60Patrol forum" "MotorPower Inc is no longer operating and has been bought by Grindstaff Engines. The MotorPower website is still up but they do not have control of it, the owner died last year and they bought the business but cannot gain control of the website. Just spoke with Rick Grindstaff and he has some of the info on the PPU engine parts but they do not show on his site. I have also been looking at Tiffen Parts. Looks like both are about the same price. Tiffen gives the actual Nissan Part numbers and the Motor Power site shows a made up internal part number." Keith

    The bed of early 520s do not have the provision of side or rear reflectors. Also, the bed wheel housing was redesigned to accommodate the fuel tank evaporator plumbing.

    Welcome to the Datsun Brain Trust. What part of OK are you in? Keith
  9. The original fuel pump heat shield had a woven (possible asbestos) insulator attached to the outside of the pump: I have fabricated a replacement shield: Does anyone have a recommendation as to what material can be used as a "modern day" insulator?

    New 320 owner, 62?

    Foam back headliner is available in both 1/16” and 1/8”....verify with the vendor which they are offering. Also, it is possible to have non-perforated vinyl by upholsterers who perf leather for custom seats.
