* A14T has automatic choke + triangular flange
* flat-tops are A12T from B210 or Nissan Cherry

Or they could be from L16T engine? The air cleaner is a clue, both the color and the shape are significant. See photos at Hitachi Twin Carb Air Cleaner

Just make sure to document which Stanza and which S13 caliper you are using. They all need different adapters

Is this what you have? Is the same rotor used by S13 USA

yeah that's DCR306-101, it has the DCR removable sight glass ...

DCR306-101 1981 B310 FED A15 MT

so it's a USA model (Federal, meaning USA except California)

S13 calipers come in four different styles:
* for 280mm rotor Japan & Europe
* for 250mm rotor Japan
* for 257mm rotor USA & Europe
* for 251mm rotor USA

So depending on which rotor you have you use the matching caliper with a purchased adapter to match that combo

Or you can use any S13 caliper with your 258mm rotors by using a custom adapter. Some are using 258 rotor with Pulsar caliper and the Bluehands adapter. See 258mm Brake Upgrade

my A15 was a California nifty 50
What is a nifty 50?

There was an ad for "nifty fifty" B210 but that was for A14 engine. The B310 was rated 47 mpg (A14 + 5-speed) or less in any report or adverts I can find

superfatto's kits just work -- good stuff


If you prefer to do work on your own, here is some more information

The South Africa 1200/1400 bakkies -- starting 1976 -- use the same struts as 1976-1980 B210. They have different hubs which use smaller bearings to fit a larger stub axle. 1973-1975 used larger bearings and hubs to match. In other words, Datsun upgraded the struts for 1976 (technically DEC 1975) to use stronger/larger stub axles

I would guess 258mm brakes are large enough to use with RX-7 FC 4-piston calipers. The FC model means 1985-1992, the 4-piston was 1985-1988 and only on 5-lug wheel models. Lesser FC versions used a single-piston caliper. The 4-piston was used with a 276mm disc rotor, and most Datsun guys have used 280mm rotors or larger with the 4-piston caliper

That B310/120Y caliper bolt spacing may be referring to Australia 120Y which used Australia brakes and a caliper adapter plate. In any case it matters not, use an adapter plate to mount the RX-7 caliper (for the Datsun models where the Hilux bolts directly to the strut, the disc rotors are machined down to fit the caliper, e.g. it only works with certain size rotor). By using an adapter plate instead (a piece of steel with four holes in it) you can make a caliper work with a variety of rotor sizes

The RX-7 four-piston caliper won't necessarily stop your car faster than a single-piston caliper -- but will likely have better pedal control and different pedal effort. And if the brake pads are larger that will stop the car faster. And compared to many calipers there are more choices of brake pads for the RX-7 (various racing type pads, street type pads, etc)

The carburetors will be different -- for 1981-1982 there are at least 15 different carburetors just for the USA .... most of which look the same

Check the model number inked on each carb, it is usually on a flat spot near the float glass, if it hasn't rubber off years ago

To ID the USA carburetor used with H95 cylinder head, see our tech article DCR306 which has photos of the various features

The JDM engines used similar but different model DCH306 which the later ones look very similar to the DCR but are slightly different

In any case it matters not to performance, as (i believe) all A14 should have the performance version with large 22mm & 27mm venturis (some A15 carbs are larger and some A15 carbs are smaller and all A12 carb use small 20/26). You can see the venturi size by looking down into the carb with the air cleaner lid off -- the size is cast in each carb throat

of the literally hundreds of DCH306 carbs, they all have different jetting -- sometimes it is the only difference. Most of the hundreds were used in USA models, whereas in Japan there were only a few different ones. Again it doesn't matter much, as you can bolt on any A14 carb to any A14 engine and it will run OK. You can also also change the jetting to optimize for power or for emissions (the factory jetting had optimal jetting only for full-throttle power, everything else -- like part throttle and cruise -- was tuned for emissions even in JDM models)

If both engines were medium oval and with water-heated manifold, I would expect the manifold to be the same casting. There are two of that type, but the other is the G51/G52 low-profile intake used on the under-the-floor Vanette A14/A15 (and cast with a "G" number)

* H89 head has the regular/medium oval intake ports of 28x34mm
* H95 USA head has small oval ports maybe 28x30mm or 28x32mm?

Both use "wet" intakes with coolant passages fed by the cylinder head. Remember the same casting can be machined at the factory for two different-but-similar port sizes

Intake Manifold H95 does not mean the it is only for an H95 cylinder head. H95 mean it is the Applied Model Code for the casting. The same casting can be used for different manifolds, for example they can be machined differently and if so it will have a different part number (but the same casting number)

* H89 means the part was originally designed for B310 4-dr sedan 1400 & 1500

* H95 I've not seen in an official Nissan documentation but it appears to be parts starting 1978 for the USA (for example the high-swirl, small-oval port head A12A/A14/A15 is H95). Some of these parts may have been used on JDM Nissans. The A15 was was made through 2010, so there's a lot of history there
