    KHB310 in Borneo

    Alright. The one on the sedan isn't original and they bashed the strut tower to fit it. Guess i'll try and find a new one.

    True. Not the booster then. Yes. All the way down. Nope.

    KHB310 in Borneo

    Barely have any updates for the KB310. Brake issue really stumping me. Random loss of braking. Checked the drums and the calipers, they should be fine. Maybe the master cylinder? Or could the booster be problematic? By 'loss of braking' I mean it's not braking even when the pedal is depressed fully. Most of the time it works though. In other news, I bought an early model B310 sedan. Might be a 50/50 part out and spares for the KB310. The A12 runs good, I presume the gearbox is good but i'm not gonna drive it. Bought from a junkyard.

    I thought it would be easy to find a replacement fan locally but weirdly no. Ended up with an RB fan. The fan I had should be the one for late A-series with AC. The one I got should be an RB-series fan. Unfortunately needed to cut it up to clear the radiator. Forgot to take a pic of the final version after smoothing it out a bit. Kinda worried this might cause other issues cos it's quite wobbly. The plastic fan is a bit bent up I presume from accident.

    With an acquaintance in town. Got some Enkei Colin Cross Fever Racing rims (13x6). Looks much better now. Still not 100% satisfied though. Got some window winders from the parts shop. I just had one before. Not sure which model these came from (and they're different) but they work anyway. Found out why I had no reverse lights. The wires to the switch was disconnected. Will need to rectify that. Fixed some dodgy connections for the front right signal lamp & front bumper lamps. All front lamps work now. The bumper lamps use 2 filament bulbs (same as brake lamps) but there are no wires for the brighter state. Will need to rectify that too. Got a new radiator cap cos the old one was f-ed. Disassembled the fan clutch. Still has oil so my guess is the bearing is dead. Will go find another fan & clutch set that fits from the parts shop. Realized the switch for the rear defrosters weren't connected and heck those don't even exist on the car lol. That's fine. I can live without it. So at this moment the whole dash is out while I take a look at the wiring loom.

    Is it possible to move this thread to the B210 section? (basically also the B310 section)
  7. Well this is something
  8. Found another one in town

    What is this thing?

    I decided to leave it for now. Doesn't seem to be problematic.

    KHB310 in Borneo

    Small update but I just got the exhaust fixed. Nothing fancy, just necessity. It had this rusty ass piping and the hole was facing the passenger foot well. Also removed that resonator cos we have lots of speedbumps and it was very low. Only then, I noticed it was a Honda part, and looked to be welded the wrong way around (there was an arrow on it). Now I wonder what muffler is on it. I wasn't there when the workshop did the work. Before I got the car, it had a side exit. It needed a full exhaust system for the ownership transfer procedure. It's good for now but will definitely redo the full exhaust system next time.

    Lucky for me, it does run. Engine seems healthy enough so I probably won't touch that. Carburetor needs an overhaul though.

    KHB310 in Borneo

    Car: '80 Datsun 140Y / KHB310 / 210 Backstory: I got it back in October 2019. I don't know how many owners this car has had but the previous owner was also an enthusiast, went the kyusha route. From what he shared with me, it didn't look too different from the current set up albeit in better condition. It did have some show events in its history until it got sidelined for quite a while and he decided to sell it. Master plan: Motorsports. It won't be TS Cup level. What we have here are time attack (go kart track, tight and short), autocross, gymkhana and finally drift (this might be a challenge). Maybe drag just for fun (our legal motorsports scene is quite weak). I originally wanted a drift car but this came up and it was too hard to pass. Primarily it needs to be restored then made motorsport capable & safe. I'll try to keep some 'purity' and not swap in Silvia underpinnings. But it might be an inevitable future. ps; updates will be slow.

    What is this thing?

    It uses mechanical fuel pump.

    What is this thing?

    Nope, carbureted. Tail lights was the reason I stumbled upon it so that's partly right. Will do. Whatever it is, it should be working fine. The connection issue was at the switch socket/connector on the steering. So presumably the entire standing light circuit was affected. Still finding new things that are broken on this car

    What is this thing?

    Yeah I'll get to it. There was an '81 210 Nissan service manual shared on the forum. That's what I'm referencing but I don't see that box. It's behind the door.

    What is this thing?

    Surely no. '80 Datsun KB310 140Y (Malaysian market) aka Sunny aka 210 There are no wires connected to the seatbelts. The signal bulbs are separate and also separate wires.

    What is this thing?

    Ok I opened it up and no surprise, I still have no clue (a board with tons of resistors and other stuff). The line from tail lamp to the box is good but idk where the line continues so I guess I'll trace from the other end. Reverse lamp wire doesn't go in there so that's a separate story.

    What is this thing?

    Voltage halves when the door is closed. I don't have the lamp so i just used a multimeter on the connectors. green-blue, green-white, white-blue white-black, green-yellow, green, black Also, might as well say, that I'm tracing for the tail & reverse wires. The bulbs are fine. Signal & brake work. Am I on the right path or I probably passed it already? edit: fuses seem fine too.
  19. I was tracing to find some connection issue and stumbled upon this thing. Before I open it up and potentially damage it trying to identify what it is, someone here probably knows. It's located near the seatbelt (driver/right side). Malaysian KB310 140y.
  20. Yeah I did imagine custom work need to be done to the rear panel. My late hatch tails need to be replaced but since I don't really like the look of it, was thinking of changing it. The late sedan tails seems to be available new from Taiwan so I was thinking about what needs to be done if I wanted to use those. But maybe I'll just convert to early hatch tails. Idk, just ideas for now.
  21. Has anyone installed the sedan tail lamps on a hatchback before? Curious how it looks.
  22. This may or may not answer your question
  23. Lucky mine was pretty much running condition when I bought it. It'll need a full body restore though. Well, i said running (which it is) but ac doesn't work, choke cable snapped, boot/trunk cable snapped, most dials/gauges not working, very weak handbrake/ebrake, a seized brake piston, rusted through exhaust pipe, but aside from those I can drive it on the road lol. Will slowly restomod it. Also first project, first carburated and first rwd.
