If I'm reading it correctly, you are saying none of the outside turn signals work at all when you put the right indicator or hazards on? I'd check the globes first and foremost. When buying a car, it can sometimes be a really good move to replace all those globes and the fuses, just so you are starting with new ones (and it'll only cost about $20 or so altogether) and it's a known quantity. Headlights perhaps less so, but certainly the indicators/park lights and brake lights (number plate lights too, little things like that tend to make the police less likely to want to take a closer look at the car.

DDGonzal - I wouldn't bet my life on it, but I _think_ the guy with the cherry who was cutting a block open to show deck/bore wall thickness was in nearby Finland, not Norway, but it's a distant memory so I could be wrong!

Lars - that is ONE CLEAN LOOKING DATSUN - good find mate!

Should have 1 spare set of early ones, do you need the tops or anything or just the bare struts. I'll chuck them in the car whenever I get time to drop the leaves around/pick up the tailshaft :)

Flatto - is the centre of the steering wheel steel or highly polished alloy (probably everyone else can tell from the pic, but I'm hopeless with that sort of thing!)

Dylan - that's roughly what I found - 'one' bolt hole would sorta line up but then no others. but when I laid the old rad against it, they were all out somewhat. Based on the semi randomness of it I'm almost wondering if they were drilled by hand and marked out real rough, or what the heck was going on. No way they were drilled to suit. But all in all I'm not too fussed.

Maybe if nothing else this will get me to get organised and start work to respray it, maybe I'll get a set of front guards and a bonnet and paint them, then a pair of doors (I've got enough spares) then do the main body or something. I dunno.....

Mik - I feel a bit like Marcellus Wallace 'I'm pretty f-in far from ok' or whatever his line is in pulp fiction. I didn't get physically hurt badly or anything, but I hurt my pride and joy, and on some level that stings a lot more.

Andy - sorry mate I thought I sent a pm a while back - knowing me I typed it up and forget to click the post/send button or something!

Graham I totally forgot to get in touch about the crank too! I'll get some pics of the relevant gear on the weekend. If you don't hear from me either here or pm/email, remind me, I've done some insane work hours lately and it all becomes a bit hazy by the weekend, but if I'm prodded enough I'll get around to it!!

ballpark on what you'd want for it if b310gx doesn't buy it?

Nick - the one thing I did ring around for that weekend was for a rad. Didn't think you'd have a stocky to be honest! Then I found that one on ebay, and with a little detective work, it turned out that their actual warehouse was literally within 2 minutes of work, so I managed to actually pick it up during work hours in the truck.

The grill I was holding off on, checked on ebay this weekend, and a cracked 2nd hand one was around $90 I then saw one on gumtree for $60 - and was only 5 minutes from where I live so I thought it was 'fate' ha ha - ended up talking to the bloke there and got a pair of em (pick the other one up tomorrow) for $100, which I'm happy with. It's the repro ones - I think out of taiwan. No badge, but the badge on the original is like new, so I'm good to go.
