    Need oil pan 1980 210 310 2 door sedan

    For a A14 OR A15? The oil pan for an A15 is slightly larger to clear the rods.

    FCR's on A12

    From datsun1200.com site...under Bike Carbs on an A14. I run 39mm Keihin FCR Flatslide carbs on the coupe I race. I bought the set up complete with manifold several years ago. Note this very same type of carb is on my Beta 520RS enduro bike, which is street legal and the bike runs flawlessly. I mention this because do not buy into people telling you they bog or have flat spots. The should work as well as any carb if not better. It has been mentioned but much more than 2psi and the float bowls will overflow. I ran the 39mm carbs on my A12GX that other than the ports being cleaned up was stock and it made 73 HP at the wheels. That is nearly double the stock WHP. I am still using this set up but now have an A15 in the cat. An 14 will easily support the R6 carbs. As for jetting start with the mains and work down from there. Do a google search for FCR carbs and Factory Pro, there is a explanation on jetting Keihin bike carbs that is a good guide regardless of what brand of slide carb you have. Naturally having raced bikes before cars I am biased but I think motorcycle carbs are made to a higher standard.....this doesn't mean other carbs are rubbish but non CV slide carbs just flow more. You MAY want to search datsun1200.com for more info on running bike carbs on an A14. #9

    Where can I find new 1200 parts?

    You may want to take a look at this site, but pay close attention to what MAY be reproduction parts. LINK: http://www.new-datsun-parts.com/datsun-1200-parts.html Classic Garage is also a source for parts. LINK: http://classicgarage.com/12002.html Les at Classic Datsun Motorsports has NEW fiberglass parts, like front spoiler and fender flares, his website is down, you MAY find him on Face Book?? Phone # (760) 940-6365 Thought not new parts, online 1200 manual is helpful LINK: http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsunB110/Datsun1200Index.aspx The down under 1200 site can be helpful in placing ads in classifieds, LINK: http://datsun1200.com/modules/newbb/ And of course there is those of us that have a few NOS factory parts stashed for trades for more of the same. Good Luck!

    Source for a 1200 Steering Box

    OK, I was wrong. In the Pacific Northwest, the ones I come across usually have been driven hard and left out in the wet!

    1200 brake upgrade mklotz70

    This brake kit is designed for 70-73 Datsun 1200's with factory front disc brakes, does not fit front drum brake models. Later 1200 Sunny trucks had 50mm front struts and front brakes similar to 120y or B210's.

    What have you done to your 1200 lately

    http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Coupe_Tonneau_Cover Saw two them given away at the Blue Lake Picnic some years ago, I would have traded, bough, swap-- OR? I didn't have a 1200 coupe at the time!

    What have you done to your 1200 lately

    I took my carbon-fiber spoiler off, so a couple of the holes are from that project. However IF you decided to mount one of these, figure out the holes on the curve FIRST, cause as they go in, the forward mounting studs move forward , it was a bit challenging! BUT I liked the way it tuned out. I did some metal carving on the trunk lid frame.

    Kelmo, thank you for the points, oddly enough I won 3rd place for Datsun 1200's at Canby! And yes there were only 3 1200's entered, LOL.

    Finally got rear quarter panels cut and welded. Installed fender flares that I bought from Classic Datsun 5 years ago! Rear spoiler I picked-up from Canby meet last year. I like the look of Smurf without the bumper and I tucked the front turn signals- make the front look a bit cleaner?? Sold a bunch of wheels, to buy these new 3 piece wheels 13x8.5, tires Toyo 888's 225/45-13

    I have looked for one of these for over 8 years, a H145 Limited Slip 3rd member. This one has 3:90 gear set. It's going into Smurf. I am glad Photobucket is working again!

    What have you done to your 1200 lately

    Had an over revving problem, top piston ring broke and worked it's way out the top of the piston, bounced around in the cylinder, messed-up the head and worked it's way the exhaust valve- so much for a heart shaped stock cylinder head.At first it sounded like a rod knock, until the next morning it started right up with no noise but definitely a blue cloud covered the track. Replaced with another A12, flat top 74mm pistons, header, H89 cylinder head and 42mm SU carbs. AND Delta reground camshaft 265 grind. Had to relocated brake reservoir for air cleaner clearance.

However hinge to door, 08120-8201E are available from dealer also superseded number, 3 out of 4 not bad for a car pushing 50!

    1200 A12 fuel pump VS B210 fuel pump

    Here is a rebuild kit, not inexpensive but may have it by end of the week: http://www.new-datsun-parts.com/datsun-1200-parts-exterior.html I checked what I have, lots of used A12 short arm fuel pumps, but no new ones!

    1200 A12 fuel pump VS B210 fuel pump

    The A12 front dizzy engines take a short arm mechanical fuel pump and the A13, A14 and A15 take the long arm pump as well as the later A12A engine block. The arms: http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Fuel_Pump picture about half way down the page??
