    Update: All are sold except the 81 510. At this time I still have some L20b's, some 5 speed dogleg and misc parts. Letting go of some Datsuns and hoping other Datsun fans will put them/keep them on the road.Craigslist requires filling in the year, title status, etc. I put in 1970 and clean title. But, you can read individual vehicles below for information specific to that vehicle.I am not interested in trades of any kind. Cash only. All of them are As Is.1970 510: Four-door: I bought this several years ago and have title. The brake lines, gas lines, wheel cylinders were completely plugged. Put in new lines, cylinders, brakes, water pump, tires, etc. Also put the chrome wheels on it. I drove it often to/from work. I have not driven in over a year. This is the famous "Datsun 510" with rear-independent suspension. Last summer I unbolted the seats and took the carpet out planning to replace it. But, I have not gotten to it. Needs a battery. $4500 firm.1970 521 (Green): Bought this one several years ago (2011?) w/ 88k on the odometer (and the title/other paperwork indicated that it was actually 88k) and I have title. New alternator, water pump, tires, etc. I just got it back from a shop that did the brakes/wheel cylinders. I used to drive it back and forth to town often. But I have not had opportunity to drive it for over a year. Some of the pictures show it in current condition and some show it cleaned/waxed a year or two ago. Notice this one also has the very desirable/rare "bumperettes" on the rear. I also had the bench seat redone with vintage material. $4000 firm.1970 521 (Light blue): I originally bought this w/o title several years ago for parts. I have the bill of sale from the guy I bought it from. I'd like to see someone get it back on the road. All I know about it is the older gentleman that had it had just done a head gasket on it. We put a battery in it and some gas in the carb at that time and heard it fire up. As Is. $500 or B/O.1970 521 (Maroon): Notice that this one has the reflectors instead of side lights (late 1969). I bought this several years ago and have the title. Also put a battery in this one and some gas in it and fired it up. Brought it home, did oil change and ran the motor some. Never did put this one on the road. It's been sitting under tarp for a couple years. $1000 or B/O.1981 510: Two-door: Bought this, not running, for a project with my Son years ago. Had a machine shop fix a chipped valve. Put it back together and it ran good but my Son lost interest. It's been sitting for several years with no attention. I have too many other Datsun projects and know I'm not going to do anything with it. $800 or B/O.I also have some spare body parts for 521 trucks and some L20B motors, transmissions, etc.If I had time, I would clean them up/get them running and ask more. But, I've got too many other projects.Robert: 541 seven six one 7526

I would like to see it go to some Datsun/Ratsun fan. $800 or bo. 1970 521: I bought this w/o title several years ago for parts. Since then, I have picked up other 521 parts and would hate to part this out. I'd rather see someone get it back on the road. All I know about it is the older gentleman that had it had just done a head gasket on it. We put a battery in it and some gas in the carb and heard it fire up. $500 or bo. They both need some attention/cleaned up. If I had time, I would clean them up/get them running and ask more. But, I've got too many other projects. Also, I have been contemplating selling my 1970 510 four door. I'm not sure yet and I'm not sure what I would ask yet. It runs and I drove it regularly but have not driven it this summer or last. Just too busy.

    521 backfiring

    To add my experience to what Datsunmike said, I found that the electronic dizzy I was putting in my 70 521 and my 70 510 fit best at 180 degrees from the original that I pulled out. I just swapped the plug wires accordingly (rotated them around two spaces.) There are some good posts on here about the wiring and other considerations. One post is something like "lose the points"
  7. My son tells me he has a set of dual weber 40's that he is willing to trade for one of my weber 32/36's for a Toyota he's putting together. I haven't seen them yet so i don't know much about them. But, I'm thinking they would work if I can find a manifold to fit them to the l20b.
  8. I was wondering about using dual Hitachi carbs from a 67.5 r16 roadster on an L20B and I found this post. Are they the "SU Hitachi" mentioned here? My wife has several sets of her many roadsters if I can talk her out of them. I picked up 3 l20b's (unknown condition) and I have one original sitting in the garage with 30k miles. I picked up a 219 head with a "Cal cams" cam and I also have a set of headers. I'm not an expert on building a high performance engine and my 521 and 510 are both pretty stock now (except a weber on the 510). I'm thinking about having one of the unknown L20B's bored and using the parts mentioned. If it would work, all im missing is a manifold to attach the su's to the L20b. Thoughts?
  9. Well, I went out to the garage to check for more casting numbers. Lo and behold, it is a 219. It's in rough shape but sounds like it is special enough to invest some money into. :-)
  10. Thanks. That's very helpful. I am curious to find out more on the "219" head and what makes it special. When I grabbed this, my thought was to puti it on an L20B along with a weber and the headers and drop it in my 70 510. I was told by previous owner the car has an L18 with an L16 head. I have not verified that. The car had sat for 20 years. I went through all brakes, brake lines, fuel lines, masters, etc. I also put the weber on it. It runs nice and smooth now. But, I figure the L20b with this head, etc. would be a pretty good setup. Obviously, I need to take it into the shop and have them clean it up/check it out.
  11. On the non-manifold side, there is an "S" between # 2 and 3. There is an "M" on the side of the timing chain cover. There is a "7" on the end that would be facing the firewall. That's it for markings that I can see. I don't have a loose L20 manifold to try on it. But, I have a set of headers that fit right up on it. Any ideas as to what it is from?
  12. I haven't had a chance to try to clean it up yet but I think its just grime on the lobes. I was going to try to take it into the shop tomorrow and see what they say about going through it and cleaning it up. To Mike's comment about it not being an L20B head, do you recognize what it might be? There's very little markings. Will it work (do any good) on an L20B?
  13. Here's a couple pics of the head and cam. Yes, Banzai510, I would love to run dual mikunis. But, probably not a option since I don't have any and I'm guessing they're pretty spendy. I do have several sets of carbs from 67 roadster. I'm not sure if they would work and what manifold I'd need. Anyway, you can see the cam info in the pic. Any info helps
  14. What's the normal compression on a stock L20? I'm going to measure the cam lobes tomorrow on a stock one and compare them to the cal cams one. The head has been sitting a long time and its got some oxidation and the cam lobes need cleaned up. I might put this head on my 30k original mile L20 and stick the weber carb on it. I also have some headers but I heard something about putting them on; like it's hard to tune or something.
  15. Nice find. Glad to see another one still on the road.
