Two Different Relays For Datsun 510 Headlights?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so it works now! I followed the instructions and compared it to the “advertised” plug with my waterproof relay. When I get back inside I will show ugly “oh my god, look at this wiring pictures”

X2 what yenpit said.

I have bought at least 2 of their kits. As well as the "poke" and crimping tool.

Well worth the money as almost all of the connectors on my cars were very brittle.

Yenpit thanks for the info on the connections.... 

While I would love to help by trying to produce them I don't even have a 510 to test it with to make sure I'm making it properly and I have no personal need for it.... 

I'd rather just put the info out that someone can use and others can follow... somebody like yourself would be better off making these....

Yes show photos

 

if I had the connectors I would make some myself and give away

 

Be honest that looks like a volt reg connector

The plug is the very common 6 "slot" that can take up to 6 terminals, male-female push together plug, used on other various components ie the voltage regulator!  Of course, you can also fill only 4 or 5 "slots" with terminals, does not matter to the plug!  My 1972 521 will use this same 6 terminal plug, but I will only have 4 terminals filled..........2 on each end.

So more or less you can use a old volt reg connector cut the wire right at the Can and use the wire to plug in the black box relay


Just note the colors on the female connector and you got it

 

i got the 521 relay figured out now also if needed

I didn't get to the store in time to get the blades that would allow me to use the old connector, I will try to do that this week.  Moved on to polishing bumpers after this.

Hainz, is the 521 wired like this "late" style 510 or different?  I think DanielC mapped out one of these relays for the 521................I just haven't done it yet!  Hoping to get the truck in the shop, now that business has unfortunately slowed down.........

A relay is a relay but it setup almost in the opposite fashion 

 

in the 521 case make                      

30    (+12 volts)                                   RED         

87a  would be low (ground) NC.      RB

87   would be high (ground) NO.      RW
86   (+12volts).   Short to 30                               

85  (ground)  From turn signal          RY                     
 

pin 30 your going to put Have to put 2 wires in the female connector or use a piggyback jumper sold in auto stores then a short loop wire to pin 86

 

The 521 doesn’t have the same relay problems as the 510.   
 I never had a problem in the 20yrs I owned my truck
