Aaron Posted February 4, 2011 Report Share Posted February 4, 2011 Ok so I have been meaning to put this together for a while now, I waiting for parts so here we go. My name is Aaron and I'm new to Datsun's. About a year ago I picked up a '71 521. Stopping for a pit stop on the way home. So I knew it have a few problems brakes where pretty much shot and the engine was in rough shape, and the damn thing had straight pipes which are F'ing loud. Video walk around. I had already put on a new weber 32/36 here. So I started digging in to see what problems I had and found the wiring was just crap. Lights dimmed when you touched the radio. Radio turned off when you hit the lights. No gauge lights period. Some weird generic fuse blocks, and most where just by passed. wire got so hot they just melted. So I yanked it all out and started from scratch. Most of the wiring diagrams out on the net are crap so I put together my own color-coded one and for some reason the alternator is wire wrong in the ones i found. (If someone else needs this I still have it in a editable photoshop file) Laid out on the living room floor to make work easier. New wiring going in. While working on the wiring decided to clean up the head light buckets too since they where out. So I got the wiring all in and working. Next up was the engine and brakes. Engine coming out. Shes out. Time to start the tear down. Quote Link to comment
