  1. Hello to all, I am trying to install a MSD Box and I have wired it as per the installation instructions for a points /amplifier ignition. I removed the old stock coil and hooked the coil + to the MSD red and the MSD white to the coil -. I have the MSD red and black power cables hooked to the battery and a new MSD blaster coil mounted and hooked up with the orange to + and the black to - . I have no start. It says that the ballast resistor is not necessary . From what I am understanding they don't get hooked up and the stock wires to the distributor are used . I am lost as why I am not starting . If anyone has any info of what I am doing that's not right please help I need my car on Monday for work. thanks for your time .
  2. Hello to all !!! I am looking for the hump for the shifter boot. After installing the 4 speed I need to keep the water out . Any help would be great. Thanks again
  3. I don't know. I am trying to find out my self. I do know that's its BPT. After a trip to the local box store I hope I found the right size. It fits my temp gage but the threads that screw into the housing after three turns it snap the lower housing . If any one has the right size that would be a great help. I am trying to install the sensor in to the old stock sensor spot. In Fairbanks they don't have any BPT so all my parts have to be ordered on line, thanks again .

    Looking for a set of finder mirrors for my 510. thanks


  8. So on to valve adjustment the Nissan Service Manual says ( cold intake .20) (exhaust .25 cold) ( hot intake .25) (hot exhaust .30) . But after reading around I found out that most set the valves to ( cold ..008 intake) (cold .010 exhaust) ( hot intake .010) (hot exhaust .012.) so that's what I did. It only have about 40 miles on the rebuild and I need to drop the oil from 10w30. Any help would be great. The engine is not leaking any more after rebuild .
  9. Just a little update. After a trip to the machine shop it was found that I had a low spot on my block so it would need to be resurfaced and rebuilt at the same time. Its back in the car and running as of last night and I hope to have running better today. Its hard to tune the carb in the cold weather of AK LOL. It has to be running and driving before April so that I can ship it to my next duty station.
  10. yes I did review what all of you have posted thank you for your help!!!!!!!
  11. Just a update guys I removed the engine today and got it apart and I don't see anything on the cylinder head or the block but I will be on the way to the machine shop to see what its going to cost to resurface the block and check for cracks and I will be installing ARP head studs and I think you have to remove the pistons and crank to completed the resurface so that more parts . Do they make APR Rod and crank bolts? Hope all of you guys have a happy new year
  12. Thank you for the info . I had the head rebuild and now I have a small water leak on the passenger side along with a leaking freeze plug. I replaced all six with autozone parts but I will be replacing them with brass. . I think that I will have to get the block resurfaced
  13. Hello to all . Looks like I need to cylinder head bolts does anyone have any recommendations ? I don't mind ARP
  14. Hello to all.. I am trying to reinstall the wiper rods from the motor to the pivot arms and I did not take a pic of this before I removed it . On what side does the two rod pivot arm go? If any one has any pic that would be great. The manual does not show it very well and after a 5 or 6 times of in and out I need help. Thank you all and have a good night .
