Are the hoses that go to the heater core on the 210 preformed? Getting a/c installed and my mechanic doesn't want to cut anything yet. Do I need to have hoses made or what needs to happen?

    Thanks! Reading now. I also have part numbers and have a couple of leads where I can still get the hoses my mechanic is concerned about.

    Actually found the hoses at a couple different Nissan dealers out of state. Ordered them this morning.

Finally got that freaking ugly fender antenna off of Stanley and put an aftermarket one along the pillar where it belongs. Sooo happy! http://community.ratsun.net/topic/21813-210s-unite/?p=1522199

    colourbox, I have a great condition radiator from my B210 if you need. it'll be a lot cheaper than buying a new one / rebuilding.

    I appreciate the offer but it's already been done. I'm actually picking him up today. Radiator shop was running behind. My mechanic gives me good deals. I built and maintain his websites :)

The verdict is in. Stanley's alternator was bad so it's been rebuilt. The radiator is leaking too.

    That's ok, we'll never consider Stanley a big drip.

    Ha! Well aside from the usual drips (oil) this is unacceptable. Still trying to find a radiator. Sigh.

Stanley's battery light was lowly lit so I had the battery checked. It was bad. Got a new one. Battery light is still lowly lit. Maybe there's a short somewhere? New mystery!

    I was reading the owner's manual and it said if the alternator and electrical system are functioning normally, but the electrical load is too heavy, the charge warning light may glow slightly. So I'm taking Stanley to my mechanic Monday to check the alternator and volt meter. Get this figured out.

    I had a similar chain of events happen on one of my 720's. After replacing the alt, still had the faint light. Turned out in my case to be too much corrosion in one of the fusible link sections at the battery terminal. Once replaced, no more light.

    Hmm interesting. My battery terminals are pretty clean but you can never tell. I'll double check that just in case. Thanks for the help guys!
