Asbestos in the 411?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Was hoping to get some info from forum members on the extent of asbestos used in the 410/411 Datsuns. Someone has previously noted that asbestos fibre is used as padding under the fuel tank straps. Any other locations that should be approached with caution?


Any info appreciated.




'65 411

Though banned only in the last 20 years in the US, after market pads from India and China still contain it. Canadian brake pads still contain it. If working on brakes assume that they contain asbestos. When I do, I limit exposure and wash the entire brake assy. with carb cleaner and rinse it off, never compressed air.
