  1. The parking lights do work, at one point I had JUST high beams. Then someone tapped on my relay and it switched to just low beams. I got two new relays after that and it has always been just low beams.
  2. That clears it up, thank you very much. I was wondering what everyone was talking about. I do have the brightness switch and it turns on the light in the dash, but my headlights both turn off. So it is back to the drawing board I guess.
  3. My Headlights don't work when the brights are on, it's been an issue that I have just put on the back burner for a long time, but recently I was browsing Datsun related forums in regards to the headlight issue and noticed mention of a dimmer switch for the dashboard. I cannot find one in my vehicle, it's a 1972. Does my 510 have one? And if it does, where is it? Is it shared with another switch? Is it an option?
  4. Laughs in Northern Iowa... I've seen worse rust on 2016 Fords
  5. There were two guys on the Facebook group that initially pulled it out of a field and did the body work, then I guess this guy bought it and finished it.
  6. Yeah the tire shop I go to does the patches not plugs. Plugs to me are good for a quick fix like on the farm or something like a golf cart.
  7. Sorry I have a 72 510 4 door. Yeah I may look for a hubcap in the meantime, they can't be that speedy, right? Than when the tires wear far enough I do like the mesh style. What offset would work with Ermish racing coilovers? That is probably the direction I would go.
  8. Last week I had a tire start to go flat, had it patched at the tire shop and put back on. Today I was out on a county road and heard a funny noise, like a tin pang a few times. It went away so I didn't think anything of it. Stopped at the gas station and was missing my hubcap. Went back to where I heard the noise and walked the ditches and can't find it. The bonus is that it was a squeaky hubcap, now I am debating on whether to get a matching hubcap or just get new wheels and tires. The tires were new when I bought it, so 90% of the tire tread is left on them.
  9. Usually means that the SSL Certificate expired, doesn't necessarily mean anyone hacked into it. Yes, it is a little more vulnerable at the moment, but it happens.
  10. So although I seemed to have got on top of my cooling issues last summer, I want a little more margin for error and reliability when it comes to cooling on those hotter days. Super excited that along with a new Koyorad I am getting a transmission cooler for my auto trans. I purchased both, now need a hose, wanted to dress it up with stainless hoses under the hood, but getting conflicting reports on what type of hose is needed for the transmission cooler lines. Will these work? https://www.ebay.com/itm/20Ft-6M-6AN-Stainless-Steel-Braided-Fuel-Oil-Line-Hose-Coolant-Air-AN6-20-Feet/122940205847?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Thanks in advance! Always new things to learn and make mistakes on ?
  11. I would be interested in his dashes, but that site doesn't work.
  12. Very interested in this. Mine is in good shape yet, but has a tear WAY in the corner. Gives my OCD a little eye twitch when I look at it.
  13. As an update, checked over everything. Turns out the relay is not working properly, going to order another one and see what happens
  14. That is really helpful actually, both of you. When I got the vehicle the parking lights were not even wired. I may have wired one of the parking lights wrong (there were extra wires in the mix), so I will check both of those.
  15. I wasn’t too worried about my headlights because they work. However, I got pulled over the other day because my high beams were always on. I cannot get them off, everything looked ok on the column switch. I cleaned up the contacts on the column. I did get a new headlight relay because the old one burnt up, it’s a 72, the replacement relay is one of those with the separate plastic connector. The dash does indicate that the brights are on. I unplug the outside lights and inside ones still work, all my indicator lights work as do my blinkers. What am I missing, or what should I check?
