    msd 6al box

    Yeah, I bid on the msd thingy on ebay thinking it would provide a noticeable difference.... But there wasn't a difference. except in my wallet hahaha. As far as looks, it "looks" cool... but lacks performance changing gusto I had imagined would occur. Believe me, this is a topic I wish I had visited before bidding. But yeah, Mike.... I totally agree with you that the real problem needs to be diagnosed first. This isn't my first car tinkering experience, but I will say it is my first without help from my Dad or a friend etc.... and first non-american made car. My 210, even at it's worst, has been the best car I've ever had. I now love Datsun and Dodge both (in that order, of course) Happy Thanksgiving, guys!!! Cheers!

    msd 6al box

    For everyone wondering about wiring this MSD 6A (accidental ebay overbid) to your perfectly good D4K EI dist, here it is.... FlatCat19, didn't call 'em... just a result of a 50/50 chance of being right (go b310!!!) ***unplug matchbox, remove cap, disconnect grn and red, connect to MSD green and purple*** MSD purple -----> red Hitachi*** MSD green -----> green Hitachi*** MSD RED -----> POS TERMINAL MSD BLACK -----> NEG MSD red -----> original (+) coil wire MSD white -----> NOTHING (tape off or otherwise disable) MSD orange -----> (+) terminal on ign. coil MSD black -----> (-) terminal on ign. coil MSD yellow -----> tach (if using one) Working great, except for the $71 wasted on no real change. maybe i'll try new plugs or something.

    Question: does the green dist wire go to green on msd magnetic pickup, and red dist wire to purple on the magnetic pickup on MSD? So confused. Same problem, same situation. No solution.

    Now that my mind is at ease, I feel like I can really start to enjoy my Datsun the way I've wanted to since I bought her.

    Overheating Dilemmas '79 210

    OoooooooKay. . . . . . Work has been immensely hectic this week, sorry I have not had the time to post . . . till now. Er-hem, anyways, so I also had a few other problems (alternator & battery took a crap) but that shit is taken care of. P.S. replaced hoses, still overheated. ***MANNNN FUUUUCK*** SO I began to study the good ol' Haynes manual, my old air cleaner, the air cleaner for my Weber DGV (32/36). As much as I wanted to keep all the emissions from the Hitachi setup, alas I could not, for the EGR valve was too large. So i proceeded to hump Mother Earth instead, capping off/ "deleting" any emissions port I could so the vacuum would be up to par (yet no tools to verify if it really was par haha) anyways There is a device on the old air cleaner called an "idle compensator" that is not on the Weber air cleaner. Acc. to Haynes, it is a "thermostatic valve located in the air cleaner to compensate for over-rich mixture when under bonnet (hood) temperature is very high. The valve opens under temperature conditions of 140 to 167 degrees Farenheit." Did some drilling on the TOP of the air cleaner, and put that shit in. Voila. HAS NOT OVERHEATED SINCE. It was 94 degrees out today in this pit (Fort Worth, TX), a day I would get close to overheating in a matter of minutes. But I didn't even have to use the electric fan till after sitting at a few stoplights. By then, I was almost home anyways. FUCKING YES. . . . and as a consolation prize: I have replaced every cooling system part in the B310. Which probably needed to happen eventually anyways. Thanks to everyone who helped, Such a tiny part, such a immense impact on the engine.

    Also, how do I go about getting a wire coil? Allegedly AutoZone does not carry it. Or... should I just hold off until I can gather enough cash to get an aluminum radiator, and then purchasing the good shit with wires in them?

    It is softer, specifically in two areas (that's what she said) -the part immediately after the radiator -the longest part before it hooks left into the engine This Thursday, I'm picking up an upper and lower hose. . . but you had mentioned something about a wire coil to prevent hose collapsing... This did not come with one. Should that be an issue?

    DatzenMike, the thermostat (or lack thereof) definitely does seem like a factor. I never really thought of it that way. That, coupled with the likely collapsing radiator hose, is creating the situation I am in. At first, removing the thermostat considerably helped my overheating problem (so I thought). I work about five miles from my house, so I didn't notice till point "C" would be thrown in there and sure as hit, it'd overheat. Also, the car doesn't cool down at all until after I turn my car off and pressure decreases (since water pump turbine isn't rotating) Which MAAAAAYBE means the hose could very well still be collapsed even though I'm parked but car is still running (since the pump is keeping the pressure consistent)? Well, fuck yeah! I am going to try this tomorrow, and see what happens. P.S. Datzen Mike you are goddamn right hahah

    I can sure try to burp them whenever I get back to work, but I already did that whenever I replaced the fluid. I flushed it real good too. For about an hour. Is it possible that since the radiator Is bigger than my old one that the hole in the front of the car is too small, also restricting air flow?

    Overheating Dilemmas '79 210

    Recently, I bought a barely used radiator from a guy on Ratsun. Waaaaaay better shape than the one I had. Fixed the leaking problems, but she still overheats! It is bigger than the one that came out of my car, I wonder what car it came from? Funny thing is, since it is a larger radiator, it should keep my car cooler. . . . . right? Aaaaannd it really only gets to that overheating point on the freeway. Also, once it starts to run hot it continues to do so until the engine is turned off and cools down for several minutes to an hour. Like.... what the fuck? hahaha. no airways are restricted by a bag etc., coolant is 50/50 premixed. . . i've replaced the cap, thermostat, water pump.... shit, even the coolant reservoir. Even removed the thermostat altogether, which helped, but still. . . when i get on the freeway, it'll steaily climb to almost H. I didnt replace the hoses, could they be collapsing at high RPM's? Like, that is very literally the only cooling system related thing that I haven't bought new. And I bought my behbeh for $250, it had sat there in this lady's driveway for almost 8 YEARS. There were rodents living in it at some point, so is it at all possible that they could have got into the tail pipe, creating backpressure or some shit? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck...... I'm stumped. Any help will be immensely appreciated plz respond to this post, or my email. . . chrismoore1987841@yahoo.com
