  1. Thanks for the info. DatzenMike, appreciate your comments as always brother, although I don't always agree. What do mean a real Weber? It is a real Weber, made in Spain. As far as rebuild kits only being $30 for A15 Hitachi I'd love to know your source. Cheapest ones I found were $135. Also, Hitachi is not able to be rebuilt. It's got a cracked housing causing a vacuum leak and gas leak. Not to mention a bad ant-dieseling solenoid, bad choke, etc. It's garbage. This carb didn't come off of a Pinto either but a Suzuki. If I remember correctly the carbs on the Pinto were the Holley Weber 5210 which is 26/27 not 32/36. I think they were about 270 cfm.
  2. Maybe, I should have been more clear. The only one I can afford (used) is the DGAV at a local wrecking yard. New is way outside of my budget. So, the question is whether or not I can make the DGAV work. Not whether or not it will be easy or clean. Eventually, I want to find an EGI for it so I can have fuel injection.
  3. So, looking to upgrade my carb from the lousy Hitachi which is cracked and has a bad choke, to the Webber 32 36. Only problem, is the only one I can find is the DGAV not the DGEV. So, my question, to those who know the difference is, will the DGAV fit even though it is aqua and not electric? Everything that I have found recommends the DGEV. Greatly appreciate some expert advice, especially from you DatsunMike . Really like to get this thing back on the road. Thanks in advance.
  4. So, I had set the timing at tdc but it was on the exhaust stroke. Once I spun it 180° it fired right up. I also welded up a custom exhaust system to replace the blown out muffler(caused by a backfire) and am in the process of rigging up a manual choke to replace the garbage electrostatic choke that is no good. Should run great(in theory) after this. Will post photos of the exhaust when I weld up the baffle. It's a little too loud with the glasspack cherrybomb and no dampering.
  5. No this car never ran correctly. My roomate screwed with the distributor so I had to reset it to tdc at the 1st plug. It is electronic no points. It is not flooded. I had to adjust the carb because it was flooding. Wires are in order. Plugs are good. Plug wires are good. Has spark. Has full tank of gas. Vacuum is hooked up correctly. I have trouble shooted everything you normally check. I'm puzzled
  6. Hey, guys. So, my 210 was flooding out and didn't want to start. So, I took the carb off and found that when the kid that had it rebuilt the carb, he didn't adjust the float and float plate to spec. So, I adjusted everything per the service manual specs. Then, reinstalled everything. Well, the fuel level reads normal in the window on the carb but, it won't start and it is detonating in the manifold like a shotgun blast.I re-checked the vacuum lines and all of those were put back correctly. Distributer was reset at tdc. I'm at a loss. Any suggestions? Thanks
  7. datzenmike: I never said anything about the S-30. I Like the wagon's overall body style I just think it's too plain hence, the customization. I've customized every car/truck that I've owned. I don't do cookie-cutter (i.e., bone stock). I'm not into having a vehicle like everyone else's. I've never been a conformist whether it's fashion or a vehicle. I have my own style. As far as the z-car front fenders etc not matching up or just bolting on, I know. Otherwise, what's the point? A body kit is still cookie-cutter because anyone can bolt it on. Also, you were right about it being a 210 (B-310) not a B210. I was half asleep when I wrote that (maybe on crack, too?JK.) because I know better. My manual specifically says 210 so, I don't know what I was thinking, my bad. Dguy210: I never listed the ZX body kit, it's ugly. Someone else did and I said that that's what I was talking about (i.e. front-end swap) was the whole front clip. As for driving my Datsun, etc. I have been ever since I got it (free). I know there's a lot of fab to be done, that's kind of the point. I just finished gutting the interior (it was rotted out) and am getting ready to do a fully custom interior with added tach, stereo, speakers, door panels, dash, etc. I've been wrenching on cars, doing fiberglass, etc almost since I could walk. I customize everything I own. I've done a lot of customization to my Ram already and will do more as I have the money. It's already got a 6" lift, aftermarket wheels, tires, headlights, taillights, etc. I appreciate your concern but, I am fully capable of doing any customization that I want (within my budget, Lol). I'm a car nut that more George Barris or Kenny Howard (Von Dutch) than Carol Shelby. I like radical, in-your-face, challenge your paradigm builds. P.S., Anyone know how to post pictures without first posting on some forms ofsocial media? Thanks. Beginning of Project Current State of Project
  8. Thanks for all the input however, I'm talking about modifying a 280z front-end to fit my B210 Deluxe Wagon. And yes, it IS a Datsun B210 Deluxe Wagon, referred to in Japan as the Datsun Sunny B310 Deluxe Wagon. B210 and 210 is the same thing. However, a B310 and a 310 are not. My first car was an 83 Subaru Loyale GL 4x4 Wagon, very similar to the Datsun B210 Wagons. I am well-versed in Japanese cars of the 80's having grown up in the 80's around them as my dad owned several. I helped him wrench on all them. DatsunMike, appreciate your concern but this is far from the only customization I'm doing. I also plan on putting fender flares on it, 14"Wheels/tires upfront (already in the rear) as well as a complete engine rebuild/swap? I also plan on doing a complete custom interior. I've already ripped out the rotting seats, carpet, etc. I was basically just curious as to whether anyone else did anything radical to theirs. I've scoured the Internet and have come up with almost zero on my wagon so, I figured that I'd go all on a crazy custom and make a splash. As far as pissing people off, I'm a Christian in a world vastly approaching outright hatred of Christianity and I'm a white and Native mutt that's also a Sundancer and Pipe Carrier. So, in short, I'm used to haters! Lol. As long as I like my baby who cares, right? Anyway, thanks again for the feedback.
  9. bilzbobaggins, exactly! I love the body lines of the wagon but front of the z-cars
  10. A B310 is NOT the same as a 310. But no it isn't an import. It's a USA California (unfortunately ) edition. I thought about maybe doing a beamer front swap, too. Haven't really decided. I just got my Datsun from a friend of a friend for free. It sat since 2013. I've finally got it running pretty good, tracked down all the vacuum leaks, etc. Long way from where I want to be, though

  12. With a 10mm (on my B210 Deluxe Wagon, anyway) wrench very carefully or curved needle-nosed pliers!
  13. Anybody ever done a Datsun B210/280z front-end swap? I want to put a 280z front-end on my B210 Deluxe Wagon anybody have any ideas or know where to get a 280z front-end that DOESN'T cost an armand a leg? Thanks.
