I always recommend ( and tell my students!) start with the basics. Rent ( free at auto zone or O'Reillys) or buy a compression tester and make sure you pull ALL the plugs ( bad head gasket or crack can be hidden one at a time)! See what you have first ( facts) before you go from there. Visual check next ( what components look worn or different.). Good luck, keep us posted. Brad

Thank you very much for that info. I was overseas for many years ( military) and couldn't find any information on later 510's, then somehow stumbled on the A-10 , and here I am. My project is really coming along, but boy could I use a new drivers door if anyone heard of one, just need the skin, or at least most of it. I can make one, but would really rather not. Thanks again for the info, and I'll go checkout the Wikipedia article. Brad

That's the first other 1978 2 door I've seen in MANY years ( mine is hatchback) very cool. I didn't know until recently that the A10 portion existed. Am I wrong or does A10 cover all the 78-81 models? Does anyone know of a link to a good explanation of this? Nice car though.

It's a fairly easy swap, BUT really research what you're after especially the specs. I can help you sort them out if needed, and the internet is full of articles. I've built many engines and teach engine building so please remember the cam is basically the easiest way to change the behavior of your engine, for good or bad. You can easily go backwards as quick as forwards. The OHC Datsun is a fairly easy cam swap as far as motors go though. Hope this helps and not confuses.

I was just giving you a bad time, since I started with doing the same, then I did the " well while I'm at it" thing until I had my car tore completely apart and am now rebuilding it from the ground up. Just kidding and hope all goes well for your project.
