  1. Two different brochures there. First three photos are brochure number one, A4 fold out double sided. Brochure number two (photo four and five) is a single sheet A4 double sided.
  2. Oh yeah - good pick up on the pick up.
  3. Hi there lucky 520 owners. I got lucky on the weekend in a store clearing sale and picked up a couple of original brochures for a few bucks each. Thought I should share them here in case the are useful. Enjoy.
  4. Meanwhile that beautiful condition stock interior got a good clean and polish, and even though I have not found a stock cassette deck yet I could not resist installing the 1980's cassette holder.
  5. Mucking about getting the Datto ready for a couple of shows. I had a few spare stickers and a boring looking steel panel riveted to the inside of the tailgate so ...
  6. Wow Wayno - if only you were my neighbour! The SU's are intact and will remain that way until I get around to fitting them by following your instructions.
  7. Still mucking about with carbies... Meanwhile I had a crack at fitting the old radio cassette unit I bought, but unfortunately it is too wide and I do not want to cut the dash to make it fit. Anyone know where I might find a 720 radio cassette unit that I can fit in my stock dash? Next Sunday is Datsunday show day here in Victoria so I will go to the show and take some photos.
  8. Thanks - but I need a twin SU guide
  9. Bump ... I need this but I can't see this as Photobucket is being all blurry. Can it be reposted???
  10. Great idea! Given the number of custom motorcycles I have built, why didn't I think of that? I bought an old stock 720 carbie so I can scrounge the throttle cable linkage off it and fit it to the SU's. Hoping my stock 720 cable will then fit. I do need to fit a choke cable, I have heard that you can do with just one SU on choke, rather than run a cable with a splitter. PS - Still looking for a Hitachi SU parts diagram if anyone has one ...
  11. Good to know Wayno, I will have a crack at cleaning these up once I find a decent parts diagram
  12. Thanks edekalil, I had a look online last night to see what was for sale - crazy prices here!
  13. After another engine swap and a wheel swap, I ended up with a fun 510 that I drove for another year before some guy made me an offer to buy it. So I sold it and bought some clunker of a Mazda and never got back to the Datsun brand until this year. So good to be back. Here is how it looked when I sold it.
  14. Some guy had spotted my Datto and decided to offer me his for parts. He had one impounded by the local council for all the parking tickets it owed and he offered me the car for $500 to clear the tickets. So for $500 I got a 510 with a 180B SSS engine and some cool mag wheels with new tyres. Bargain. That brown vinyl roof was pretty cool too.
