    I am looking for my "Holy Grail" car, which is a Datsun 510. I own a '68 520 and I am on the hunt for a 510. It can be a 68-72, 2 or 4 door. I would prefer a runner, but not critical . A complete car is my preference, but throw me whatever you may have. I am in Mission BC, so the car has to be titled and able to be shipped, which I will look after. you can text me anytime. thanks for now, Loryde 520

  2. I meant to post this in Datsun Pictures under General Forums.....dang!
  3. This is my '68 Datsun 520. It is a rust free truck I bought in Portland Oregon about 5 years ago. It has an L20B with a 510 4spd. I had an intake manifold made by Bogg Bros in the UK for my R1 Mikunis. It has a triple s head with a Shadbolt 445 cam which has quite a lope to it. It all works very well together except for the low gearing. This winter my dogleg is going in it!
  4. Hey there, Is this truck still for sale??
  5. I had the exact same problem on my L20B a few years ago. It turned out to be bad rings. I did the job without pulling the motor out. pull the pan and head and it's easy from there on. I rolled in a new set of bearings while I was in there too. It runs awesome now and doesn't use a drop of oil. I was running Delo 400 but have switched to Rotella 15/40. I hope this helps you out. Good Luck!
  6. we don't have much sunlight way up north here........
  7. Yes, mine is switched on when the hood is opened, but only when the park or headlights are on.
  8. Not sure which car/truck you have but my '68 520 hoodlight only comes on when park or headlights are on.
  9. Yup, just like every other car that hits the spotlight via these "fantasy" shows. How many people can truly do a frame off in 2 weeks??? I would maybe watch the show for the love of my Datsun, but I think this show will fuck this little world of Datsuns we live in. As soon as BJ gets ahold of these little cars and trucks, watch out!!! No one will ever buy my 520 for any amount of doe!!
  10. Sounds like a vacuum leak to me, or a plugged idle jet. This is true on dirt bikes I work on. When you have to run with the choke on, it usually is a plugged idle circuit. Definitely running lean if plugs are white. It will be running hot too in a lean situation. Also check for vacuum leaks. Take the carb apart if you haven't already and have a look see inside. They are very easy carbs to work on and there is lots of info on the 'net.
  11. Ive got a '93 Hardbody KC VG 30 for sale, but I'm on the wrong coast.
  12. I know this car you are talking about, or should I say, I seen this car on Craigslist. It's the green 2 door for sale in Alberta with Saskatchewan plates correct? If it is, I did the quick math and he is asking a little too much considering the work that needs to be done. I personally would be looking south of the border for a cleaner more complete driver for around the same money. I do live only 15 mins. from the Washington state border, so this may be an easier option for me. I have in the past seen some 510's for sale in Alberta that were actually pretty decent cars for not a ton of money.
