  2. Billed to be the biggest Japanese Car gathering in Houston, please join me at the upcoming Mayday Garage Meet on Sept 27th, 2014. Attention Vintage/Classic Japanese car owners and enthusiasts! We have heard your cries for us to do what we did three years ago with the Speedhunters crew! Join us on Saturday, September 27th at Moon Tower-Inn Houston for Texas' largest Vintage Japanese car meet ever assembled! We are inviting all Japanese cars Pre-1990 to come to our festival and enjoy some Texas craft beers while taking in the best classic Jap cars in the south, all in one meet. So clean those carbs, and brush off some of that rust, your time has come! https://www.facebook.com/events/295718627301337/
  3. Last weekend, my original G15 engine threw a rod and as a result, destroyed the block. I'm looking for a new drivetrain to install in the car. Open to either a G15, R16, H20 replacement. A G15 set-up would be my preference, but whatever is available can work. The cleaner, the better. I will handle shipping arraingments Thanks, Dan
  4. Zianian - I'll send you a PM For those interested, here is the original invoice for the 510 when sold new. Here she is in 1971 in Denver after a snow storm. The 510 was relocated to Houston in 1972/73. Circa 1985 in Houston, TX
  5. On the Roadster a jackshaft is used to drive the distributer. I had a mechanic install a new fuel pump WITHOUT the required spacer. Thus, the lever of the pump (which also drove the jackshaft) was not properly aligned,and stripped the jackshaft. After all was said and done, the shop FOUND my original pump spacer on the floorboard of my car (originally told me the car didn't have a fuel pump spacer). They were honest & stood up to the mistake. They fixed everything and were very professional about the situation.
  6. Was at the San Antonio Z Car Fiesta in April, and saw this cool 510 wagon for sale. I believe the price has been adjusted since showing up on Bring a Trailer. This was a california car, but now residing in the Texas Hill country. Not sure if the car is still available. If you are interested, I can get you the owners info. http://bringatrailer.com/2011/05/31/1971-datsun-510-wagon/
  7. The 67.5 roadster uses either a R16 or U20 engine. L series will not just drop into it. It would be more of an engine swap project vs just simply an engine replacement. But, I will say I have owned two L series roadsters and both were great runners.
  8. Bump - Meeting is this weekend. Looking like a good turnout!
  9. Good news. The 510 is alive & drove on the road to a recent Cars & Coffee Meet. Still lots of loose ends to complete, but it drove on its own power for the first time since about 1996.
