In Topic: '81 720 Wheel center caps

13 February 2018 - 09:14 AM

Sorry guys...... I've been out of pocket for a bit. I have none of the original center caps but I have actually seen them in person on another truck. Ebay has like two listings with original caps when I search. They only have one cap each. I guess I was hoping someone knew if a cap from another Datsun model would fit. I've given up trying to stay stock for now. That being said it is insane trying to find out how manufacturers actually apply their dimensions to aftermarket caps. I talked to the guy at Summit and he is actually going to have one of the stock pickers go out and measure some caps to see if he can find me one that fits. Highly recommend Summit for cust. service. Those guys have ways treated me right.

The junk is installed.
Initial - 5 degrees at 650 rpm

Mech. -starts at 750 rpm
-all in for an additional 12 degrees
at 2275 rpm for 17 total
Vac can -adds 20 at idle
-adds 10 at 12 in vac
-adds 3 at 7 in vac

Runs well. Temp stays low in op range. Ive got the NOX smell now at idle. May see about putting a stop collar in to kill about 5 degrees off that vac can.

If all else fails to resolve your issue make sure you check your flexible fuel lines. You just disturbed a lot of them changing the filter and working on the carb. I've seen the interior of older fuel lines collapse and cause partial restrictions. Same thing that happens with flexible brake hoses. Its a long shot but if nothing else pans out to be the problem check it out. When the filter clogged you may have collapsed one of the suction lines and compromised it internally. I've chased that ghost before.

Well so much for my OEM distributor. Nissan showed the thing in stock online and then cancelled the order as the part was no longer available. I'll start hitting up the junkyards tomorrow. The Cardone came today. Seems mechanically sound. The air gap was way out of spec so I set that right. I'll get it on and throw the tach and vacuume guage on it. See where it curves out on the mechanical and then how the can acts. I've got the SM so if it is close to what you said I will be happy for now if it gets me in and out of the driveway. Throw the spare module in the glove box. One thing I noticed different is the drive end on the one that came out has a plastic collar with a spring steel hoop around the end and the one I just recieved has a solid steel one. Any idea if this makes a difference? I was going to install it then crank the engine over by hand and pull it back out to check for any scoring or interference marks before I started it. Or I can just change the collar out. They are both slot drive not splined.
