Datsun 1200 Alternators & Starter Motors

Post by DATSN1200 » Thu Oct 24, 2019 8:51 pm

Does any one know a retired Auto Electrican that can check out used Alternators and Starter motors in the Lower North Island for a fair cash deal?
I have been quoted a Hourly rate in Wellington of $90.00 an hour and two I have asked dont have bench testing available for Alternators anymore
The price of bushes and brushes @ $10.00 each is fair and apparently they are still available from a Distributor in Seaview Lower Hutt
Please advise me of anyone you may know of

Forums are pretty much dead for this sort of chat.
You’ll have to sign up to Facebook and join the Classic Cars and Datsun pages.

The very best advice that I can give you is to contact Damon ( Datodevil ) and buy new items off him. They may not be genuine Nissan but at the end of the day I know which I would rather have and you may well find that there's not much in it pricewise.
Cheers

Could someone confirm starter motors are 9 tooth for Datsun 1200 A12 series 1971 /1972 ?
Some are 8 tooth so will both work without damaging flywheel ?
