  1. Could you just delete the brake trigger from going through the turn signal switch? Then you can just run a single wire from the pedal switch to the brake lights.... I would think the turn signals would flash properly since it would never see the brake signal.....
  2. Did you see the Nissan leaf race car..... I think they only used the batteries and electric motors.... rest of the car is carbon fiber and tube chassis I believe....
  3. Atleast it ends up outside.....
  4. Oh and i dont believe the spines are different..... I have a stumpy 71b 5spd from the 85 720 in my 72 521 with the L16 and I did nothing to the clutch, just used all the stuff I had.....
  5. Pretty sure all those are the 71b series 4 or 5... 5spd should bolt right in ..... just measure the length as Mike said, should both be around 31.5 long...
  6. I have thought about that also, just haven't gotten off my ass to look into it.... usually the only drink that is allowed in my truck has a twist top... Right now what I do if I want my morning coffee is keep my tool bag on the passenger floor with a cone k&n filter in it upside down.. fits the mug nice....
  7. I wouldn't mind seeing what they are gonna do for you... thanks..... I honestly don't know where I'm going to try to put them..... I would like to make a console or something to go around the shifter with a place for my phone and possibly the cup holders, but as we all know there is just not alot of spare room.. I have thought about doing something between the bucket seats but I half ass made it a bench with a 3rd seat belt so my wife and kid can all ride with me..... I may have to wait till he out grows that spot...
  8. Oh another random side note.... took the datsun to get food during lunch break, well I want cup holders now..... My friend ran back in to get bbq sauce and I dont know how I managed to do it but I knocked his soda over and dumped half of it out onto the passenger floor.... I thought my kid would be the first to do that not me. . . Oh well thankfully I was quick with some rags, and the carpet seemed to resist it soaking in....
  9. I'm sure that's true.... I tried to keep things simple.....
  10. Oh and I almost forgot to add the drain... The unit had 2 so I just added a tee then ran it out the firewall.... In the engine bay....
  11. I definitely have a binary.. only 2 wires... Maybe I'm wrong but I keep reading both the binary and trinary have a high/ low cutoff, the only difference is the trinary adds a trigger for fans ... This was my wiring reference.....
  12. Yes there is a binary pressure switch attached to the dryer..... I did read that the binary switches will deactivate the compressor for both low pressure and too high of pressure, but I just left the last connection off just incase..
  13. Well the ac system minus getting charged up at the mechanic is finished..... looks the same as it did during mock up so no more pics. .. I still need to make the final connection to activate the compressor but I'll do that at the mechanic's.... At least for now I have a fan to blow air at me....
  14. I got a good start yesterday morning doing the final install of the ac system... I cleaned up all the holes and sharp edges, then gave a small coat of paint to protect.... While the paint dried I focused on the wiring, got done to the point I needed to install the under dash unit and i was out of time..... Well for some reason around 730 last night I got a second wind and was able to get out to the garage again.... some how about 3 hours passed and I got about 95% of the install done..... I only have the 2 firewall bulk head fittings to connect, but I need a second set of hands so I can tighten them to the fire wall before connecting the lines..... Its amazing how much quicker it goes after it's all planned out and mocked up.... just sucks I need to wait 2 weeks to get it charged now, already spent my allowance for the week.... On a side note I was curious if I would in fact be able to feel the air flow from the under dash unit and that's definitely not a problem....
  15. The senders I'm using have multiple wires so they don't rely on grounding to the block.... I just need to buy better quality.... I've been wanting to replace my tach, oil pressure and volt meter with a set from Speedhut but other things keep taking my money.....
  16. Probably would help if I spend more than $15 on it too.....
  17. Well I decided to check something yesterday that's been bothering me.... My electric oil pressure gauge would drop to zero at idle but my idiot light would never come on... I temporarily installed a mechanical gauge and thankfully I had 40psi at idle..... so next up will be a better quality gauge and sender and I'll be doing something to fix all the things attached to the sender location......
  18. This Is a great book for it.....
  19. Some days I couldnt because of the belt that runs the compressor... I had to remove the water pump pulley and alternator belt, then move the timing pointer out of the way but yes still able to drive it. Im actually driving around with the compressor installed right now, drove it to work today... so now there is nothing stopping it from running, but I still have to do the final install of everything.... just got the lines back today so I have everything I need to finish it..... If you asking if I can make that cars and coffee I dont think so.... still have a dead line to get things installed.... maybe the next one.....
  20. Lines are at the shop to be crimped.... gonna schedule the appointment with the garage tomorrow to charge the system... they are booked about a week or so out so I'm hoping for Monday the 26th... i dont get to much time to work on things during the week so that gives me 2 weekends to finish and 1 more paycheck to pay for it...
  21. I used this place... good prices quick shipping.... https://3bgsupply.com/ Also these guys have alot of the other internal parts if needed.... https://www.midwesttrans.com/FS5W71_Manual_Transmission.html
  22. There are plenty of bearing supply shops , plus Ebay..... best to remove the old one then just search the numbers on the bearing.....
  23. After 3 more calls I finally found a place only 10 minutes from my work.... Dropping off tomorrow picking up Friday $70.....
  24. Before you return it or replace it and spend more money you should make sure the distributor is sending a signal to the icm..... Can you check the green and red wires coming off the distributor? Sounds like whatever is suppose to trigger the module isnt..... Hopefully datsunmike can clarify that....
