  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.

  11. Here is a pic of oregondime's car at the April Cars & Coffee in San Antonio
  12. Draker, you're right. I should have been more clear with my post. I'm sorry for the quick cut & paste.
  13. 2/ Negative comments about the item or the price WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. These will be removed and the member warned once or temp banned, totally at the moderators discretion. No excuses, no exceptions.
  14. My friend purchased the L320 from Lonnibob. This truck was very truthfully described by Lonnibob and honestly, it was way better than I expected. I hear the engine is already running! Very excited to have another classic Datsun here in Texas.
  15. The ' D' on the Vin is not too uncommon. For some reason (I don't know why), Datsun added an additional Letter to the vin of some of its early cars. For example, I used to own a 1965 SPL310, and it too had a letter D as the last digit in the VIN. I've only seen the letter 'D' show up on 1965 cars.
  16. Was in New York this weekend when the news was announced. Such a bummer. I first saw the Beastie Boys in concert 4/21/85 when they were the opening act for (....Gulp) Madonna on the Virgin Tour !
