  1. Can someone let me know what year range I should look for when purchasing a radiator for a 510 vg30e swap ?
  2. Cruising along on this job . The pan and mounts I got from puckerfactory.com are awesome !! I wanted to ask if anyone here who has done this conversion ever got the oem speedometer in the dash to work ? Or do you just go after market ? I am trying to keep as much of the original dash working as possible . I am about to test fit the engine and trans to hopefully get a measurement for the driveshaft today . Also about to start sorting out the harness . If there are any pointers , tips , etc I would definitely appreciate it . After I get through this step I think the next big things will be a custom air filter & intake tubing and radiator with electric fans . P.S. the donor set up is from a 93 Nissan D21 pickup . The Datsun is a 72 510 wagon .
  3. Yes exactly I would like be able to use the on board diagnostics. So deleting the California smog stuff would need to happen. About to remove the the original engine tomorrow. Still have to order some stuff though. Mounts that came out of the donor are broken may switch intakes for clearance issues.
  4. Hello folks. New to this page and wanted to ask a few question and get some more direction with a swap I am doing. Start with the information. I am attempting to swap out the engine from a 72 510 wagon. I am putting in the VG30E engine. So far I have an engine , transmission ( manual ) , harness , computer , & an oil pan from a 200sx. I plan on having electric cooling fans , K&N cold air intake. I wanted Ted to ask if anyone has a source for engine and transmission mounts ,exhaust manifolds / headers , throttle cable , and shift linkage. Also I want to keep it fuel injected. So do you guys know of anywhere I can send the computer out to for modification ? I plan to eliminate all smog components as needed so I would like to have an LED for the check engine light. Thank you you very much for sharing your experience with me. I’ll be sure to add pics and what not as this job moves along.
