Re: Datsun Nationals 2019 Hanmer Springs

I thoroughly enjoyed a day trip to the 2017 Nationals in Ohakune. Unfortunately I don't expect my 68 sss to be ready. My son Nick lives in Christchurch and is enjoying my old sss. A passenger seat in his car is booked and I have bought my airline tickets. Looking forward to meeting great people and ...

Re: Dato blue

One of my 1600's was NZ new painted what I think was a lighter blue which as you say faded badly it was called Ko blue. I will see if I can track down the code.

Re: 1600 Rubber Set

While in Au I bought Rarespares door seals, I haven't used them yet but they seem good. Their window seals where not right for our trim. As I understand it the 510's made in Au had local content that is different to the rest of the world. They didn't make the 68 model so they refer to the screen rub...

Re: Universal alternators

Rewiring to suit and internal regulator is fairly easy, the hard part is finding an alternator with a v belt rather than a ribbed belt. On my race car I am using a Subaru Justy alternator (small = light) just had to cut down the mount slightly. The early L series alternators used 8 mm bolts later on...

Re: Datsun 1600/510 headlight rewiring

This is great but the early (68) 1600's had a smaller fuse box and just one fuse for the headlights. I found out the hard way when it blew on a quiet country road. I hit the brakes and fortunately stopped in the middle of the road. The later 1600's had a cunning system with fuses in the power wires ...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi I visit this forum frequently and have been meaning to introduce myself for a while. I am another bitten by the Datsun bug. It started for me in 1973 when I was 19, (yes I am almost an official coffin dodger) anyway back in 1973 my younger brother had just bought a Fiat 125 and it made my Hillman...

Re: Registered Datsuns

I agree there are numerous errors but I think for security reasons the chassis numbers are abreviated. My 1600 sss's are shown with abbreviated chassis numbers but the rego and or rego on hold papers are always correct.

Re: L16/18 Flywheel Bolt Specs

The last time I rebuilt my L18 race motor I bought part number 12315-42L11 from my local Nissan dealer, from memory these are L28 turbo bolts and are slightly longer, I googled the part number, looks like this replaces lots of others and are used in newer motors.

Good luck

Re: 180B

The web site also says cars with confidential addresses are not listed, also written off cars with plates on hold will also be listed. A very worthwhile guide but not 100% accurate. My cars are all listed but none of my 3 x 510 sss's are shown as sss. Pleased to see there are more 710's shown than I...
