  1. where can you find new distributor springs for a lb20. 1979 model. yes it is the matchbox style
  2. why did nissan go from a double roller timing chain found in the z24 to a single roller found in the ka?and the guide on the ka is plastic,the side next to the manifold.on the z24 iis some type of hard urethane bonded to the metal guide?And did the lb20 have a acess hole for the chain tensioner? i would think that nissan would have stuck with the double roller chain and the bonded urethane in the ka motor? i guess that they were making them to good and not selling enough parts or theying to do it cheaper
  3. okay i will look for one tommorrow when i get to the salvage yard
  4. thanks for all the input guys really appreciated. i drove it today with the headlights on ,voltmeter read 14.13 volts .checked it with a voltmeter.i will keep my eyes on it .and i like the bigger alternatot idea to.
  5. yeah.head to a salvage yard tuesday to see if they have any
  6. its a replacement alternator.the headlights were off when i checked it with the voltmeter i will chech it again tommorrow with the voltmeter on.i wish it was a local place that rebuilt alternators and starters in my area. there used to be 2 plces within 5 miles of me that did it. they both have gone out of business. the owners retired and their kids didn't want to take over the family business.one guy family had been in business for over 30 years.just wished their kids knew what they had.
  7. i noticed the other night my alternator light had a slight glow to it.It initially went ot after i first started the truck.i was driving at night when i noticed it.i checked the voltage with a volt meter and it checked out at 13.82 .any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. the pricesc of 720 parts have gone up in my area .the prices of the trucks have too.the local pick and pull where i go.if you don't get to them trucks when they first hit the yard chances if you were looking for something specific you won't get it.so i know after servie on Sunday ride through the country looking for them. i did find a 620 while i was searching. it had been sittinfg for a long time.trying to get in touch with thw owner now.
  9. just wandering why nissan didn't use a double roller timing chain set up in the ka24 engine.did they think it might last to long and they not sell enough trucks or parts. just food for thought.
  10. i found a 1982 210 dizzy in a salvage yard about 2.5 hours from my house .i bought it and a dizzy from a 1981 maxima both for 75.00 gonna use the 210 for parts to build one for the lb20 .i have a matchbox housing for the lb20 already.both were complete.the 210 shaft is made different on the bottom. it doesn't have the slot machined in the bottom of the shaft.i am going back later when i got time to look around. told me he had over 3,000 cars.and the grass was cut and it was a very neat and clean yard.found another matchbox in a yard 45 minutes from my house.it was a little rusty,but had good
  11. well got fortunate today and found a dizzy out of a 1982 datsun 210 with 170,000 miles on it. Guyalso had some 1982 maxima dizzies as well so i picked up one of those for parts.he told me he had 3more maximas on the yard,but it was a little late when i got ther.its 2.15 hours one way from my house.i told him i would be back next Saturday morning. he has about 3500 cars .

    looking for a good EI dizzy.Let me know what you got.


  14. another question about the matchbox dizzy.I had to put a new pickup coil in my matchbox dizzy.i noticed the magnet had a crack in it.will this affect the performance.i noticed a litse mis at idle.

  15. Your right that’s just a plastic cage to hold the three balls. I cut the rivets out of the one I had that was broken.
  16. Thanks ,i set my ka24 with the matchbox dizzy at 12 and its working just fine for me. like i stated earlier vacuum advance plugged and so are ports on the weber.
  17. well left the vacuum advance unhooked ,plug the vacuum ports on the carb timing set to 10 and it runs really good .driving it everywhere again.thanks for all who chimed in .
  18. Bruh that is really nice and well thought out. Good Job!!!
  19. i want ever use it.just picked it up because it was there.but on the other hand i guess i could just keep it in case.is there any advantage in running an all brass distributor cap.
  20. i think that number is 22000-B8001
  21. is there any such thing as rebuilding a vacuum advance?i got one off of an old points distributor i picked up from the local salvage yard friday.i found a old points distributor in the truck bed of a 620.the tag on the fire wall said it was a lb20.the numbers on the distributor was D4A4-07.it was rusty so i put it in a can of evapo-rust to clean it.The shaft is stuck.so after i got the rust off. i sprayed the whole thing in PB blaster to hopefully free up the shaft.
  22. sent distributorguy a message and hr told me why they were made like that.
  23. i found a points distributor yesterday in the local salvage yard.it had been out in the rain for a very long time.So i am soaking it in rust removal.i got from it .it was laying beside a truck with the motor pulled from it.the truck tag had lb20 on the tag under the hood.i don't know if it came from this particular truck.
