I definitely have that ratio. iirc it's in an alloy housing.
I am bloody hopeless at getting around to things at the moment (I've taken on a new job and literally spend more time working than all else combined, and I was disorganised BEFORE that) but I definitely have one. pm me for a phone number. I'll do my best to find it this sunday, it's probably next to the lost ark in storage... If I don't get back to you, keep hassling me. I have no idea what it might be worth, can't recall what I paid for it ( bought a few of them from a forum member in PNG, If you happen to have a 63A 5 speed I'd be very keen to swap with a cash adjustment to make it even stevens so to speak.

I'm in melbourne northern suburbs. If I'm not getting you confused with another member - you're out mooroolbark way somewhere and I think I may have bought some a15 blocks and bits and pieces from you when you went to an SR16????

ddgonzal - would you happen to know anyone who has done this? Not having seen one of these boxes in the flesh, I'd be curious as to how it all goes as far as things like the clutch fork linkage goes and generally the length of the box and shifter location.

I'm not sure where you are but check out

https://www.motorsportfibreglass.com.au/

not just the datsun 1200 specific stuff, check their general 'gallery' pics as well..

https://www.motorsportfibreglass.com.au/image/337/red-dat?tid=9

https://www.motorsportfibreglass.com.au/images/123/agmhillclimb.jpg

or you might be able to modify/shorten/adapt :
https://www.motorsportfibreglass.com.a ... /Small-Rear-Spoiler?tid=9

https://www.motorsportfibreglass.com.a ... ts/33/Rear-Bob-Tail?tid=9

If they don't make it specifically, they might know where some of the spoilers in their gallery came from. Couldn't hurt to email them

Repliglass do one for a 1600 may be able to be altered to fit. They also do a front spoiler for a 1200

https://repliglass.com.au/product/dats ... -sedan-rear-boot-spoiler/

Last but not least (well maybe) - from a ford escort - again might be able to be adapted with some work?

yeah got it going - brand new n10 pulsar alternator and quick rewire tweak and all is well.

Well it was - then the starter decided that it was their turn to die. It just barely starts - I'll get a new one by the weekend (with any luck)

Thanks for all this help my friends.

ddgonzal I followed the link to the LR 135 in the tech wiki. The link to the part at baxters (aus supplier) didn't work, but I manually searched their presumably remodelled website and found the valid link and have updated the wiki accordingly)

The rectifier I ordered in doesn't even match the one in my old alternator, so I can't (at this time) rebuild it even if I wanted to (I will try and chase up if the right rectifier is available for research purposes! now that I have the old one to compare it to (was buying 'blind' because I hadn't had time to dismantle fully)

Based on all this my new plan of attack is sourcing (or getting a friend to - work hours are insane) a new one for a nissan pulsar n10 with e13 motor and fitting and changing wiring to suit.

I seriously owe you guys lunch if you're ever in melbourne (actually on that front D - what part of the universe are you living in now - once long ago you literally lived one suburb across from my place, the last I seem to recall you moved to Japan?)

I just did a search on ebay, using the specific hitachi part number rather than generic datsun 1200 1973 alternator.


A few came up, but after the LT135 they had a "-" and either "13B" "69B" or some other numbers. Do these reference anything as far as the mounting lugs or dimensions (they all appear identical in the pics) or does that just denote what application it was originally placed on or something else?

it's the lt135 that I have and am after.

Today a family friend did more running around. Apparently there are rebuild kits available and it has been ordered in. Not sure exactly whats in it, but bearings were ordered too (haven't seen him in person to know whether or not that's part of the kit or an option or what)

The place he went to had an old guy working there who used to rebuild them years ago and was familiar with the specific alternator. He said beyond brush wear, he encountered the rectifier failing in many of them with enough time/mileage. They are also apparently available, so we've tried to order that as well. Fingers crossed.

In the mean time I'm still after another, if for no other reason than to have the car on the road whilst I fix the existing one, which is difficult due to work hours. So anyone in melbourne/VIC let me know.

Thanks for the info too ddgonzal!

Hey guys, after a frustrating day trying 3 different alternators that were meant to be direct replacements, I'm looking for anyone with a working (as long as the bearings are ok and it was charging the last time you used it, I can replace brushes) hitachi alternator.
Willing to travel to melbourne outer suburbs and beyond if need be. PM or reply here.

Failing that anyone have a part number for a new replacement that actually fits and is sourceable here in melbourne? The ones I tried either placed the pulley 5-10mm forward of the correct position, or were larger diameter and fouled the radiator hose/outlet pipe coming out of the block.

I know it's a long shot but can't hurt to try.
I'm kinda large, and the seat I currently have in my coupe actually came out of rally car that had been rolled that I got through DatsAndy. AFAIK *(since the rear end and motor were 180b . Anyhoo - due to my size I deleted the seat rail sliders and custom welded a frame so that the seat is about 3-4 inches lower and 5-6 further back than a factory seat will go (so now my head doesn't hit the roof, and my leg doesn't hit the steering wheel when I use the clutch)

The seat itself is on its last legs and I'd like a fresh one (even if the upholstery isn't in grerat condition so I can reproduce what I did, but without doing any damage cut/recut/rewelding - now that I have the dimensions and locations etc all figured out.

Anyone have one, or a pair - let me know.

I'm in melbourne, but willing to travel to country vic if someone has one..

Thanks for taking the time to read this :)

THe holley is without a doubt the 'fisher price' carb compared to the tunability of a weber, but sometimes the extra tunability leads to more things you can get wrong instead of right.

It's literally 20 years ago I played around with holleys, on blowthrough hemi 6s, and more relevant to this discussion, a 2300 holley 350 2 barrel on a toyota 3k engine (which could be seen, quite literally as a poor mans a-series - in all seriousness. I also was an active participant on the blowthruturbo list that was on yahoogroups way back when. Based on everything that was discussed on that list, and the relative ease with which the holleys can be prepped - as far as a blowthrough setup goes, I literally wouldn't give though to anything else. the carb on the 3k saw somewhere around 30psi boost at one stage (we just kept raising it then ended up wiriing the gate closed just to see what would happen. Ended up not only blowing the head gasket, but it literally took a chunk of the head with it but the carb never leaked or saw any issue. In fact it had no blowoff valve either, so I'd shudder to think how high the pressure may have spiked when the throttle was lifted after running out of either rpm or road in 4th gear
