Best battery for a B210???

19 June 2018 - 09:12 PM

Hey guys! I'm finally going to start my B210 '77 coupe resurrection project. Been working on cars non-stop for the past 6 months, but just not mine. Doh! Okay, this ride has no battery at all in it, so I'm starting from scratch. I've checked several places for BCI/group sizes to get a general idea of prices and warranties. But I'd like to get some real Datsun folk knowledge about what the best battery for my ride is and why? I'm curious about these things:
- What is the ideal (if there is one) group size/BCI # for mine?
- Do higher cold cranking amps and cranking amps really matter in an old car with stock engine/features?
- How important is reserve capacity?
- What brands do you guys really like and depend on?

I've looked at Oreilly's "SuperStart",
Walmart's "Everstart Maxx", Autozone's "Duralast Gold", Napa's "Legend Premium" & "Napa Power" & "Legand Pro", Costco's "Interstate 22" and that's it for now.

Any other brands I should check out too?

What's best clutch set for my B210?

27 April 2018 - 10:43 AM

I'm doing an auto to manual swap on my 1976 B210. I'm wondering what the best kind/brand of clutch set to get is for daily driving? I have a 1977 as well, and it has a cheapo Duralast set in it. I'm not especially thrilled with it. I don't know much about clutches, so any info is helpful. TIA!

Will 12" rims on a B210?

They were previously on a stock 110. I've got 4 of these and a spare.



Time to scrap! Best way to cut this Coupe?

06 April 2018 - 08:20 AM

The '74 B210 coupe is ready for the scrap heap. What is the best (cheapest, easiest) way to cut this bad boy up, and what do I do with all the pieces once it's cut up? It also has 6 crusty tires with it. Help!

Bringing a sitting car back to life!

03 April 2018 - 09:11 AM

Hey guys! So I'm ready to start trying to bring my 1977 B210 back to life. I bought it a few months ago. It has been sitting on a clean title non-op since 1986. The only thing missing from it is a battery. Got that, check!

Now what are all the things I should do to it before trying to fire it up?

Oil change?
Auto tranny fluid change?
Flush gas tank and lines? How do I go about flushing these out?
Clean out fuel pump? Is this possible to salvage the original? How?
Brake lines? How? I have a new master cylinder I can put in.
Anything else?

Thanks in advance! Mucho appreciate any help!!
