#1519042 Just bought a 521

Posted by Crashtd420 on Yesterday, 05:38 AM

And I just looked at his web sight...
The longer pushrod is listed for a 411... looks to have the same clip as what he sells for the 521... again just looks like a longer rod to me.....

This is what I bought... you can find new for the same price as remanufactured so look around....
And the pushrod is up to you.. if you got the longer one you could probably grind the end down to shorten it... but the recommended one did work....
dont know if you know his web sight...
http://www.bluehandsinc.com/

Also has brake upgrades and bearing mod stuff...
An fyi The front inner wheel bearing is wrong where ever you buy it...
He makes a spacer so we can use an available inner wheel bearing,

The stock part for the 521...
Nachi 32kb02S1... these can be found on ebay.... there are some full kits that are being sold that are correct...

I'll dig out the part number...
I had to buy one of mike klotz pushrods to go with it. He had 2.... one longer than the other.. I think i should have bought the longer one because if the master I chose. It worked perfect but I was at the ends of the adjustment.

Ya the joy of drums... I did the front disk conversion on mine and added the dual master..... much nicer... I left the drums in the rear just so I didn't have to deal with rigging up an ebrake.....
Do you think you'll take the 521 to that car show? I'm dieing to see another 521 in person.....

#1518819 Just got a Datsun 521 :)

Might be good to pull yours out and check the plug on the back? I saw 2 different ones on ebay... one has 3 spades on the back and the other had 5....
Do you have any keys at all for It?
Door keys?
Maybe a lock Smith can help out and re key the ignition to match the locks.. not 100% sure if that's possible on those or not...

I liked to roadster place more for the seal than the glass... I thought they had more things available for the 521 but when I looked they didn't have what I was hoping they would...

#1518596 Re-core or replace RAD?

Posted by Crashtd420 on 21 September 2017 - 05:47 AM

It Probably has more to do with the condition of the inside of the radiator if it works fine or not....
If it can t flow coolant properly it can t cool the motor...

They are hit or miss.... I 've never seen one available local to me then one pops up... try some local glass shops.... maybe they can atleast get it for you and not have to pay the shipping....

eBay has a couple but shipping is expensive.... see who has them available maybe one is somewhat local...
Have you tried the local windshield shops to see if they can get one?


#1518393 Just say no to vampire connectors...

Posted by Crashtd420 on 20 September 2017 - 04:47 AM

I've wanted to post this for a little while..... I keep seeing these vampire connectors in people's wiring....
When I use to install alarms and remotestarts and every time i had to repair someone else work i would find these.. the vampire connectors were the biggest cause of the systems malfunctioning....
This is a reference sheet to what that I think is a better way to make the connections....
