Where to find L16 parts

Recommended Posts

I just started building a L16 for a 510 and i cant seem to find simple things like a oil pick up tube. Do any of you guys have a good place to find new engine parts?

These are parts that have not been made by Nissan since the  '79 S10 200sx. No one makes them as there is no market for them. Only things that can be bought (maybe) are replaceable wear items like brake shoes and pads, timing chains, spark plugs and ball joints, shocks, tires. The pick up tube does not wear out so there is no replacement for it. Best bet is from another 510, 610, 710 or S10 (200sx).

Ask around. Classifieds.  Here. Other Datsun sites. Facebook etc. people have this stuff and will sell it.

There are a few specialists throughout the country that stockpile this stuff. Sometimes it's hard to get them to sell though. These aren't small block Chevys so parts don't grow on trees.
