Not a good enough reason, they all are. That's the whole point.

There is no POSTclam $1.99.  There's plenty of clam chowder elsewhere on the internet.

I would try for a set from a wrecking yard first or a want ad here. Gotta be cheaper than shipping across the Pacific. If you do make sure you check you seat belt is snug. :lol:

The '84 FSM shows White/Blue and Black/Blue wires to the resistor so check which one has this and assume that is the tach resistor. Earlier models show Black/Red and  Black/Blue for wires. Anyway you only need one.

 

The round plug is for use by a Nissan dealership. A technician can plug the truck in to check some of the electrical components and diagnose problems.

I broke one apart to see what was inside. It was a tiny resistor like from a transistor radio set in something like  brittle plastic.

I think the stock are around 115 pounds closed? One of our members 'http://community.rat...er/2344-sealik/' found a Ford spring that was 130. I can't remember exactly but it was in his build thread. He hasn't been on in a long time and his account is dormant..

2.2K ohms. You can get any 2.2K ohm at Radio Shack (probably 10 for a dollar) and wire it in line




#1558536 Some problems with my car.

No. Try grounding the fuel sender. Fuel gauge should read FULL.

 

If reading full, the regulator is working.

 

If no reading perhaps the regulator is not working.

The voltage regulator is in the temp gauge but runs the fuel gauge also. Folds a thin strip of fine emery paper, hold the point apart and let close on the paper, pull the paper through the points to clean and polish them. Give it several tries. This should fix it.

 

 

The voltage regulator is simply a bimetallic strip with contacts on the end and a wire wrapped around it. The wire warms the strip, it bends and breaks contact, it cools and makes contact and repeat. This keeps the gauge voltage around 8. If not used the gas and temp gauges would vary their readings at idle charge 12.5-13 often 12 or lower if headlights and fan are on.... and 14.5 when revved up and driving. By providing a constant 8 volts the gauges stay constant also.

The tach resistor is usually a small lump under the taped up harness around or behind the left (driver's) side headlamps and the coils. I think all harnesses have it there even if it doesn't have a tach option. If you add the tach is just .... works.

 

The oil pressure gauge is usually paired with a volt meter in a small housing just above the center console under the dash. 4x4 trucks have them and probably the ST 2wd and they may be an option on regular 2wd... I don't know. If you mean the sender for the oil pressure gauge, it's located under the intake on the side of the block between cylinders 3 and 4. The sender for the gauge is different from the sender that only lights the low oil pressure lamp in the dash. It will have two wires rather that the single one.




#1558532 So what's YOUR take on it?

Posted by datzenmike on 16 April 2018 - 07:26 PM

I never think about what my Datsun is worth only it's value to me as a driving experience. I just like driving an old hunk o junk that I can like. I put a lot of time and effort into it for my enjoyment, working on it and making small improvements. It may never be truly finished.

You should have an 11.8% over drive so if at 4,000 in 4th... 5th would drop 472 RPM to 3,528

 

Top speed in all vehicles is limited primarily by wind resistance. Keep in mind that as speed increases wind resistance increases 4 times for every doubling of speed. Four times not double. If it takes 30 hp to drive along at 50 MPH it will take 120 hp to drive at 100 MPH. To make power a gasoline engine needs to rev up. It will make more power at 4000 than it will at 3,500. If you reduce the engine speed too much it will go faster in 4th revved up than in 5th at lower revs. This is called being power limited. Over drives are not intended to be used to go faster, only reduce engine revs at cruising speeds. Nissan engineers probably did the math and selected an over drive that will work fairly well with your 620.

 

If you can keep up with traffic I would just leave it as is. It's only noise, and an L20B red line is 6,500 RPM so you won't hurt it. You might go to a lot of trouble to go slower. Spend some money on sound deadner.
