Yes the CA20 throttle flows more air, and (reportedly) bolts onto the A14 manifold with only a "little modification" needed

You can also fit a single butterfly throttle -- which will flow even more air. The twin-butterfly design I would guess is used to enhance the vacuum signal in the smaller channel. Frank used a 55mm throttle from a CA18
Open in new window

compare to the stock A14E twin-throttle body

Geoff thought 55mm gave poor throttle response (all or nothing)

Neal used a GA16 throttle body

Michael used Camira throttle body

Mount rubbers break over time due to vibration (and the torque reaction is a contributing factor to this). The A12 doesn't make enough torque to tear them off due to torque reaction alone

Nissan revised the rubber insulators in 1973 to be more durable. They look exactly the same as 1970-1973 units. The rubber is reportedly less soft. Perhaps the bonding method (rubber to metal) was changed too

With the larger calipers it will require more pedal travel. You can shorten the pedal travel by fitting a larger diameter master (the downside is more foot pressure is required, but with a booster that's not usually a problem). Also if you have rear drum brakes, adjust them to spec as this reduces pedal travel

"Sponginess" technically refers to a mushy pedal due to air in the lines. A lot of people call increased travel "spongy" but it's actually a different thing and a different feel

They are often for sale on eBay out of Malaysia


Round headlight & square headlight models use the same glass

WEATHERSTRIP-FRONT WINDSHIELD

Japan Market
* 72710-H8500 Sedan
* 72710-H8700 Coupe, Wagon (Sunny California)
* 72710-H9400 Van (squareback wagon)

North America
* 72710-H9100 Sedan
* 72710-H9105 Coupe, Wagon (sport wagon)

What's the difference?
* Coupe/Wagon glass is probably a slightly different shape than Sedan/Van
* NA glass may be thicker than Japan glass & so the weatherstrips differ??? Just a guess
* Sedan & Van glass is the same, and both use the same mouldings. No idea why the weatherstrips differ. Maybe they look different

Compared to a non-booster setup, the booster type will allows feel spongier. Even so, when the brake system is bled properly a booster type will feel fine

One simple test you can do is: With engine off, pump the brakes until the booster loses vacuum. The pedal should get higher and tighter with each pump. All sponginess should go away after four pumps or so -- which indicates the brake hydraulics are OK. If it doesn't remove all sponginess, re-bleed the brakes

yes a great example, nearly one owner, modified in all the right ways (A15 + 5-speed, Jilba wheels), but with the original parts available -- will it sell at $10,000?

Yes the shape is interesting. Unfortunately the Yahoo Japan coupe is not a prime example

Reg Cook Cherry - looks great!

Yahoo Coupe - not so much ...

A survivor!

Quote:
This is the ‘one owner’ restoration project that you’ve been looking for.

I purchased the vehicle a few years ago off the daughters of the original owner who drove the car off the dealership in 1972. It was emotional. The car was well loved by their Mum and held many fond memories.

I had high hopes of the classic restoration and subtle mods to bring 'the Fonz’ into something that could be a daily driver or fully restored into a show piece.

Unfortunately, the ole cliché of a newborn baby, a demanding older kid needing a pony* and general lack of time and space, means that the time has come to reluctantly let it go. Ready to hit the road with:

Current WOF and Rego.

Running an A15 with 5 speed – runs super well.

Original matching numbers A12 available, with 4 speed.

Rebuilt front steering/ suspension.
I have put on larger brakes on the front. Original struts and factory looking hoses though..looks stock. All orig parts available.

It has new KYB shocks in the front with lowered (about 1.5-2”) Kings springs. Rear standard.

14” wheels with good offset. New Proxes 195/55/14 on rear.

Original wheels with 4x hubcaps avail.

Has Datsun Cherry seats in the front. Standard seats available (need recovering).

Interior mint.

Body has light surface rust (original paint) and some rust in the usual spots if you dig deep enough. Inspection recommended. I can take photos of specifics for those that can’t inspect for themselves.

The body has not been messed with, so you know what you’re getting. There is evidence of repairs in the two front doors, otherwise that’s it.

Have two new front guards that will go with the car.

40+ years of service records.

Genuine car, massive opportunity to rebuild a classic in your image or drive as is and enjoy.

And you guessed it, no swaps. Cheers.

*Pony might be taking it a bit far…but you get my drift.
