    So the 2 that were leaking, I took them apart and cleaned them. I discovered that there was the wrong o-rings installed on the float needle housing and replaced them with better fitting and fuel rated ones. Re-installed the carbs and it ran good. Took it for my first test run. Now I need to start on the electrical issues. No turn signals,horn, heater lever won't budge. A lot more work ahead.

    https://i.imgur.com/pHYBtfC.jpg So everything is finally installed. Just when I started it fuel was pouring out the front of the carbs. Do I need a fuel pressure regulator? Or do I need to run its own return line instead of using stock setup(pictured). Or are the floats not working properly? Thanks.

    A14 exhaust manifold https://imgur.com/gallery/NGuQ0 I'm going to use the stock exhaust manifold and the quad carb intake. Do I need to make a special plate to bolt to the gasket in the picture or just bolt it down? Thanks in advance.

    A14 no carb https://imgur.com/gallery/1jUHP Well it took me about 1 1/2 hours to pull the carb and manifolds off this morning. I went to see if the headers would fit and no luck. First the intake and exhaust ports are slightly smaller than the head and the the tubes are 2" too long and would hit the crossmember. If I shorten them to fit in between the motormount and cross member I would still need to angle the collector out to miss the trans. So now I don't know if I should do the mods to the headers or get a new carb (with electric choke) to replace the worn out stock one. Or option 3 which I was going to do down the road after I got the car sorted is to fab up a draw through turbo setup. Leaning towards modding the headers to fit since I have them and air pod filters on the way. What are your opinions?

    Think I'm going with these. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Set-of-2-Black-Foam-Pod-Filters-50mm-Honda-CB-CL350-360-450-CB500T-/182443509320?nav=SEARCH

    Just order a intake/exhaust manifold gasket and a valve cover gasket. Once they get in in swapping in the new setup. Looked at it and it has a vacuum port so should be quick and easy. Just have to figure out what air filter set up I'm going with.

    Sorry never heard anyone call it that. First Datsun, usually work on and hangout with Chevy squarebody guys.

    Yes it has the a14. Can I use the new carbs with my auto trans? Don't I need vacuum from the carb to control it ?

    A series quad carbs https://imgur.com/gallery/kqbEL Just received these today. I also got a new tire to replace the punctured one. Then I tried to get the car to run right and get it moving. hooked up all the vacuum limes and tried to get it dialed in . Every time I thought I had it and took the car for a test drive I would get a few blocks down the road and it would die and not run again. The vacuum lines seem to be finicky or the carb but it idles good then I put it in drive and it dies or runs like crap. I know it's probably a vacuum issue just need to go though every line to make sure it's good and not leaking. Was thinking of just putting the quad carbs on and not messing with the stock setup. Is the clear line in the photo vacuum line for trans,ect.? What do you guys think?

    So I put some petrol in, replaced the clogged fuel filter got it started for the first time in about a year. Had to hotwire it. New key and ignition shipped today. It would not idle no matter what i did. It reved fine but would just die if i took my foot off the pedal. Any ideas? Messed with the idle screw with no result. I did buy this set up https://www.facebook...487980501237083but would like to drive it around for a little bit to see the change in performance. What size exhaust should I run with the headers? Thanks for all the help. Great forum.

    Would this setup make a noticeable difference in performance for the a14? Would the 4 carbs be a pain to tune? https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheZGang/permalink/1487980501237083/?sale_post_id=1487980501237083

    So I replaced the battery since it was 13yrs old along with new battery cables. Fixed a couple of bad wires and then tried to start it. I'm using my nissan Altima key right now since I lost the one and only key for the car when I transported it to my house. If I jiggle it just right it will turn the ignition. The engine turn over wouldn't start and saw a fuel hose leaking so I fixed that. Then tried to start again and I couldn't get the Altima key to work again. The fuse box seems very finicky. I think I would like to upgrade it to modern fuses asap has anyone done this? By the way I ordered a new set of keys and locks,ignition, just have to wait.

    Just picked up this 210 this weekend. Couldn't beat the price. It needs a lot of work but it will be fun. It doesn't run due to some electrical issue. Tried to jump it and only the lights work, nothing else. So I need to go through everything to figure it out. The previous owner said it ran good before the issue. This is my first Datsun but have always loved them. Any advice on the electric issue would be awesome. Will keep everyone up to date with the progress of the project. Will try and post some pictures once I figure out how to.
