Air cleaner bracket

31 January 2017 - 08:58 AM

Does anyone have a photo of the air cleaner bracket (Item 21 at https://www.carparts...pe1485828074783) installed on their 520?




Hood safety catch

28 January 2017 - 04:03 PM

I am having a difficult time visualizing how the hood safety catch is installed with the spring adding tension to the catch.  There are three components (http://www.carpartsm.../body/hood-lock) Items 1, 2, and 3.  How is the spring positioned to offer tension in keeping the catch engaged?





520 Front turn signal wiring

15 January 2017 - 06:21 PM

The 520 uses a single 1157 bulb for both the front running light and the front turn signal.


The 1157 bulb is dual filament 25 watt and 8 watt.


Which wattage is used for running light?




SAE graphic design

06 January 2017 - 08:05 PM

I've been giving thought that we should recognize our older Datsuns with a "Datsun, ain't no metric tools for me" shirt. Many people cannot envision a Japanese vehicle that has SAE standards only fasteners.

What are your thoughts or designs?


Bulb socket insulator

01 January 2017 - 06:24 PM

Does anyone have a source for replacement bulb socket insulators


Note, this socket is from a 1966 Datsun 520, which has the mounting tab offset from the terminals. (Compared to the 240Z which has the tab inline with the terminals.)
