Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

This page is not Datsun specific, but the author does seem to have the "Ratsun attitude" :

"Many serious auto repair mechanics and restoration type guys live by the moto, "If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway." Their logic is that everything should run like new, and if it can't handle the load, it should be replaced with something that can. My moto is, "If it jams, fix it. If it breaks, fix it again." I'm the guy who keeps putting tin cans on the exhaust pipe until I run out of pipe to clamp to because it's all cans."


They guy keeps an old Dodge Omni running for cryin out loud!

Cars are another interesting example. I bought a new Dodge Omni back in 1986 with manual a five speed transmission and 2.2 liter engine. The car gets 40 miles per gallon on the highways or the backroads, I rarely get it over 1500 rpm on most of the trips I take. The whole key to fuel economy in vehicles is keeping them light, and it's a damn shame that Detroit never got with the program. But now the Omni is in trouble, 22 years on salted New England roads will do that to a unibody. Rather than consigning it to the junkyard, I'm going to try a rehab project, something I could never justify on a simple cost basis because of the time and materials. But how can anybody say it makes sense to throw away a car that gets 40 MPG? Unfortunately, before I get to mechanics, I've got to do something with the rusted out unibody



I work in Tech Support so I can appreciate his decision trees or flow charts for troubleshooting problems. Most folks (in my experience) do NOT troubleshoot: they see an issue with a component and replace the component. They never ask "what caused that component to fail?" or "can I repair that component?" or similar type questions. This guy gets it, IMO, he may get fanatical about certain topics.... but that's okay- he's dead on about the stuff I need help with. Plus his site is a good resource for guys who need a sanity check on some automotive systems like cooling and electrical and brakes. that's how I found his site.

I'm looking for an exloded drawing of a R4W63L. This site has a pic of it but no exploded pics. (everything but it it seems)

Anyone know where I could find one?
