Can't beat FREE! Datsun 810 sedan & 510 goon. Good sheet metal or parts?

Stalling continued: Drove er to Novato. 70+ mph and stopped in Santa Rosa Nissan. In the 260 miles not a single stall occurred today.

I think it was this past Thursday when I arrived home when it stalled and flooded. I immediately had my neighbor hold the fuel pedal while I messed with the return line. Disconnecting didn't help the leak nor did removing fuel cap. I decided to drive back out again in which case when I returned home after 1 mile she didn't stall or leak.

Maybe the float needle is getting stuck and over flowing though the secondary?

I'm running out of potential culprits... We'll see.

Got a chance to finally do the front wheel bearings. Got the parts in about 3 months ago. Vibration finally got worse so it was time.

Overall not a difficult process. Remove caliper bolts and center nut. Pretty much all of it comes out.

Bolt on the tire and shake it. If there's any play somethings up. Otherwise your ready to roll.

Researching the plate number, it looks like this car was on the road at least as late as 2013 when someone made an abandoned vehicle complaint about it.  It looks as if it was registered to someone named Terry Lee.  Unfortunately the only photos I have left are black and white, but according to the S.F. Parking & Traffic documents, it was blue.

Renewal fees show some info. It looks like someone had its registration paid till June 2017. It's a 74 which is most likely the only reason it's been kept.

Did some maintenance yesterday such as oil change and fluid levels. All checked out great. Pulled one spark plug to check it's color for fun. It's looking orange with no carbon buildup. Dam impressed with it.


As for the above situation. It's been cool, below 80's which hasn't been good to test idea with but I also haven't had a single problem. No fuel pressure in tank either. So patience it is.


Took er for a stroll just to add more miles & test lens. 4K left till 290k, can't wait! :frantics:
