    Tachometer

    Well that adds a little to it..... I'm sure there is a way.... I know when I was doing remote starts there was something called a tach generator....

    Tachometer

    That unit specifically uses an obd2 diagnostic port to get its information from the computer.... Same port on the newer cars that you plug into to read fault codes.... If you dont have an obd2 connection to your Sr computer and wiring you wont be able to hook up that unit..... Have you verified that the tach in the vehicle still works? If the 710 has a single input and the sr has a single wire for a tach signal it sounds like it should work... maybe the tach itself doesnt have power or something along those lines....

    Tachometer

    Does the SR use an obd2 connector? 2nd thing to look at would be how the factory 710 tach is wired.... My opinion is if you have a single wire Tach on the 710 and obd2 for the SR this should work. I know some datsuns had ones that were wired a little different, no idea what year or model, and i dont know if that even applies to your setup ....
  4. Well I dont seem to have a good before but this is how she now sits..... And luckily no new issues....
  5. I was able to lower the rear of the truck a little more over the weekend.... approximately 3 inches now in the back with about a 2" gap ..... I'll go another inch when I upgrade the rear suspension.... for now I just wanted it a little lower with no complications... Completely forgot to take before photos, but I should have one, and the after photo came out bad.... I'll try to get one later....
  6. That sounds about right... as long as this is all it is I'll be happy.... On a different note I decided to check the gas usage on the datsun.... Best estimate says I'm getting around 19mpg with a single weber 40dcoe ... I though I was getting a little more before but with the new job my commute is only about 10 minutes or so and the highway has about 3 long inclines going there so I'm on the throttle a little more going to work that coming home....
  7. No scan tool... never really needed one.... we were driving a 1999 Chevy and 2001 Subaru before..... now with the newer Subaru and nissan it might be worth the investment.... Last time with the no horn I got to leave, there were no dash lights on so I assume this time they got to far into the inspection to let me just go.. I'm ok with the rejection sticker for now, at least it's better than the March sticker it had and we now we can drive it around....
  8. Well didnt see this coming.... stupid Subaru failed emissions but I dont think it was for actual bad readings.... I replaced the battery and left it disconnected to do the repair and apparently have only traveled 4 miles since.... the tech mentioned that and said the car needs to be driven for a while, something about the computer has no history stored, and I should be able to pass the retest.... have I mentioned I hate these newer cars...
  9. And I now have cold a/c blowing.....
  10. Making progress, I got the Subaru fixed, just need to get a sticker today.... Datsun is currently hooked up to an a/c recharge machine..... This should be the end of repairs and I can get back to some upgrades....
  11. Hey try this one... says ships world wide... https://www.ebay.com/itm/224025644144
  12. Ok I think I'm seeing your issue.... Tried to see what it would cost to ship a 1 lb box from the us.... $40..... damn....
  13. How many do you need? I have 2 extra ... I'll ship to Canada... Whats the issue with shipping to Canada? Hell If you need 4 I'll buy them for you and reship if you really want.....

    '69 521 project

    Watch out with the front inner wheel bearing.. unless something changed the inner sold on sights like rock auto, autozone, among others are actually wrong .... Best to check the numbers on the bearing.... I believe it's a 32kb02.... They also have the 32kb02-11b which is for the 620.... it can be used but you have to remove a spacer from the spindle then you need a thin spacer .... Mikeklotz was making them, not sure if he still is .... I snagged a set for the furture....
  16. https://www.ebay.com/itm/313080822129 Set of 4- $8 plus shipping....
  17. So I've been daily driving my datsun for the last few weeks which has been great.... i have one last issue on the Subaru to fix, biggest problem is waiting for the parts and appointments.... After I fixed the horn and replace the battery i went and had 2 recalls performed at the dealer and it didnt fix my problem... I'm told the steering wheel angle sensor died..... enough about that .... One problem did happen today with the datsun. . Tried the a/c today and all I got was warm air circulating.... The other day I messed with that one hose but after i fixed i verified I had the proper pressure, air was cold and compressor was cycling.... well today it wasn't.... I checked and found no power going to the compressor because of the pressure switch, so I checked the pressure and sure enough it was zero.... started checking the fittings and found the one on the compressor came loose to the point I was re tightening it by hand at first.... i tightened that one up and checked the rest... hopefully that's all that needs, made an appointment for Tuesday to have it recharged....
  18. I have that same pump on my side draft weber .... it actually put out the higher end of its psi... about 6.5.... you'll probably need to add a regulator too, but you may have a return line to help with that, at bare minimum I would verify psi at the carburetor... For wiring if you can do the oem fuel pump relay that would work, no idea if the wiring would be in the truck but it might be tucked away.. with my 521 I opted to use a oil pressure switch and relay... It Sends power while cranking and then as long as there is oil pressure the pump will run.....
  19. I had good luck with the 3row I bought for my 521, but definitely watch out for the ebay radiators.... Seems you already found the in/out in the wrong spot but also check the diameters of inlet and outlet... make sure they match what you have... They really like to lump the 520/521 together but the early had the J and the later the L series....
  20. Looking good... What did you end up choosing for coilovers and spring rates? I just did my fronts on my 521 with the single adjustable qa1 and 400lb 7" springs.... very happy with the ride... I am waiting to do the rear till next winter ... need more money for parts...
  21. It is a bit weird but the guy that does the sales is cool and straight up.... I had no issue and I know hainz and few others have ordered from him also.... I can send you a couple pics of my cap and the seal if that helps at all...
  22. I think I got lucky with the a/c line.... I took the grill off and was able use a couple tools i had to crimp the connector just a little more .... I only recrimped where the original crimp mark's were... at first I was getting a couple hisses as I was doing this and then I wasn't .... after that I started the truck, turned the a/c on and made sure the compressor was running.... no leak..
  23. It's not to bad, on the datsun it's just safety... honestly if you keep your vehicles up, which I'm sure you do, either test shouldn't really be an issue.... Its motivation to me and sometimes it points out things I over looked, like the wifes horn.... also i probably would not have bought tires for the datsun if I didnt need to pass inspection right now, but I am very glad I did.... even getting rid of my chevy, who knows how long I would have tried to keep that going....
  24. Second time worked....
  25. Damn ebrake didn't hold good enough... I was able to take it home and found the rear drums needed some adjustments... Take 2 .... back trying to get the sticker...
