  1. Interesting thing about those Euro dists. They were available from the Comp Dept after the standard units were NLA through the regular parts Dept. This is why I won't reuse a lock washer. Still available from your dealer
  2. Yes, I use 10-12 BTDC @ 40 degrees dwell. I have installed Euro dists when you could still get them from Nissan US and used the same specs.
  3. After being on display in my office for umpteen years the colors, yes colors, were a bit faded. One of my customers very generously agreed to have it professionally reproduced and enhanced. Should bring the colors back. When it returns, soon I hope, I'll post the results.
  4. Yes, model, therefore, market is indicated on a build sheet I have.
  5. I think it's important to remember that all of the Datsun models - Z, 510, 1200, 521 and Roadster - imported to the US during the period being discussed had information decals. I can assure you they were not added at the dealers. That would leave Port of Entry. Again, I can assure you that there were no facilities at the US ports that could have handled such an operation.
  6. I finally had a chance to dig through the archives for those sound deadener part numbers. they are, or were, G5930-89904 and G5930-89902. I last bought any 9/07. I can't remember which is thicker (cargo area)
  7. Banzai Motorworks 1971 240 reproduction on a particularly nice example.
  8. There MAY be as many as 4 different decals for 1971
  9. The underhood emissions/tune-up specs on the BAT car was silver as is my reproduction, as it should be.
  10. I found it funny that those $%^& door jamb bumpers were missing!!
  11. We, Datsun dealer personnel in the US, were taught, by the factory, to identify cars by production date and model name, i.e. 3/72 510 2 door. It was explained to us as being the best way to get the correct parts from the mechanic's parts counter in the dealership. Not trying to be argumentative - just stating the historical record as experienced by me. PS I worked in Datsun dealers as a mechanic from 1970-1980
  12. 54436-E4100 Bolt-Transverse Link - Bolt that secures the front control arm to the subframe(note the color) NLA from Nissan US 01221-00211 Nut-Hex Lock L - left tie rod end lock nut- NLA from Nissan US 08911-34410(A) Nut-Rev idle shaft - Early 4 speed trans also used on the 3N71A automatic trans to lock the shifter in place. However more familiar as the right tie rod end lock nut- NLA from Nissan US
