Hi chaps. I'm in Australia and have a stock a12 in a 120y. I bought the chinese Hitachi clone and have had it on my car for about 6 months. Firstly it fitted perfect, no modifications or chock cable issues. Second it ran perfect without the air filter assembly. Once it was all together 100% it runs very good. A #OOPS#e load better than my old flogged carb. The only issue I have is primary low rpm gentle accelerator usage. It has a small hesitation. Enough to annoy me a little bit. Heavy acceleratation its good. If choke is on primary low acceleration is smooth but higher up with secondaries open it hesitates. But other than that it is good. Cost me $90 AUD postage included.

I wanted a big diameter tyre to keep the revs down on the freeway in my a12 120y. My ears were going to fall off in a bloody mess.

I got 14" 200B rims with 165 80 r14. Knocked the revs down almost 1000 but of course the car is slow at take off.

I still regularly look at the forum here, but I'm just emerging from the other end of buying a house and having two kids. Finaly got the finances under control and am starting to spend money on the dattos again. I have a good wife who tolerates and I now have 4 dattos.

But yes, some for sale online are asking crazy prices. Who would buy a 120y for $9000?

No its not sorted yet. The insurance company etc is taking ages to quote the damage etc and get back to me. When I get a payout I need to source a panel.

Hello, I was recently involved in a crash where a nice truck spun me around at 100km h because he didn't see me. Anyway my rear quarter is busted up. Its a 1977 Datsun 120y four door sedan.

I am looking for a quarter I can come and cut off a wreck or a rubbish car. I will pay for it and do the work. Alternatively if someone has a rolling shell that I can buy and pickup with a trailer please let me know. I'm north of Melbourne near Craigieburn.

Thanks
