Well did you look at the volt reg connector if it has the 2 wires installed?????????????????
If yes then order the 200sx IR alternator.
But I think it would have been ezer to just buy the external volt reg (a solid state unit is usually cheaper) and put plug it in that bending over pulling out a alternator.
cant believe the previos owner was running this like that. I seen this before where a ext volt reg was still on and a IR alter was installed.

Most time bad cables/corrossion and half assed Alternators are the proplem on these things.
pull the pullug to let the water drain.
buy this and plug in cig lighter(if you have one). They work great and you can monitor the voltage while driving and when you load it down. They work good and dont drain the battery. also cks for over voltage Like above 15 volts. Sign of bad regulator.
theres different version of these and work well. Not need to buy stupid AMP meters.

I actually do have a working cigarette lighter! - but a radar detector will probably take that plug soon-
Tested it with the new alternator- all good 13.5+ with all the lights on-
Although realized my front signals aren't working anymore... The lights are on but they don't flash... Found a few threads on it- going to check the 4 way flashers first-
Pulled the dash/cluster off last night and just put it right back on- lol - that's alot of wires-
No love for the 510 today since im in NYC all day -

so they were working?????????
swap the blnker cans.
emergency swithc should be installed. when off its a completetion circut for the turn signals.
This the turn signal stop working when you pulled the dash. I think there is a grn wire that needs to be hooked up also.
I think a volt meter is more important that a radar dector as we are older now and drive more conservative. I seen more datsun go down to notmonitoring the battery systems. then on side of the road.

And chances are, IF you ever get pulled over the cop will more than likely BS with you and let you go for a warning.
I had a headlight out on my 510 when i was driving it from Fresno, got pulled over on the Oklahoma turnpike(had all my papers of course)...which i thought i was speeding cuz i didn't have a working speedo at the time. got let off with a warning after we BS for about 10-15 minutes. Told him about Ratsun, he wrote down the website, said he was looking for a good project... (so if you are on here Steve, hope you found a good car, lol)

my father-in-law raves about this thing called a battery buddy... basically its a battery regulator just in case voltage were to drop below 12v, it will disconnect the battery automatically, and reconnect it when you get back to your ride, saving your juice for when you need it. not sure if anyone has experience with this on dattos, but he has it on his caddy. haven't ran that setup so i can't give you a personal opinion.

Think Ive decided I am just going to get two new 5 point harnesses- probably simpson- so both the passenger and the driver seat will have 5 point- probably 2-4 weeks out on that since harnesses are not cheap...

Bracket for the filter Mounted up
Filter Element in place
Rear Filter on
Front Filter Element on
The filter element ovalizes some more when the cap is put on so I dont know if it still touches- was tough to say
Completed- Thanks Todd! You got a spot in my engine bay with the sticker
May have to replace two of the studs in the front carb since they came out of the carb and the nut stayed on- seems to hold fine though- I locktited everything and the filters came with some nice nyloc nuts as well.

We are having a fun run in a week if you would like to join us!

You should remove the butterfly nuts and drill a small hole in them so you can safty wire them so the dont fall off.
Or use a spring with slight tension on them so if one but loosens it will tighten the other thus not comming loose.
Spring might be with the kit
as for car covers best to put car in gagrage or a car port. soemtimes on covers it holds the mosture in after awhile
what is that aluminum foil looking wiring that goes down by the header?????? I just dont get what people think soemtimes.

Is there any way to be sure which tranny it is? with out digging around for numbers?
Also got a lap belt in the passenger seat so there is atleast something, until i pull the trigger on 5 points for both driver and passenger.

Well zim stiell trying to figure you the dizzy wireing going under the car.
Now I see the flywheels open. That means you need the L16 typw 2pc lower cover part. Or a one pc which youll need to pull the motor and put on before the flywheel gets installed.
Hope a rock dont go flying in there.
Whats the shift pattern???????
what is that cable under neath? Parking brake?
