That reminds me, there's a nice old couple near that have a shop that repairs automotive instruments. That is all they do and they've had the shop for 50 years. Very interesting to chat to. I brought in my 180km 120y speedo to have the odo reset and they instantly recognised it as a JDM item.

Anyway they have a nice write-up about car clocks on their website

I'd like to get the calendar though. I'd be so useful for... i don't know, making sure you don't accidentally drive to work on a Sunday

They are around, they tend to be expensive for some reason. They were fitted to the coupes. I have never seen any datsun clock of any kind that works though. I believe it is possible to retrofit a new mechanism.

If you remove the #1 spark plug (the front one!) and put your thumb over the hole you can feel the pressure when its on the compression stroke as it approaches 0 degrees. Be turning the pulley clockwise. Try and advance it a bit say 5 degrees before TDC and set the dizzy up so the rotor lines up with the #1 lead. Start the car and then set the timing from there.

As Datsandy says check the firing order 1342 and remember that's in the counterclockwise direction.

Maybe a case of "It's either me or the ute!". Then, "Sorry honey I tried to sell it.".

Yes they are plentiful, for example on ebay. Seems the same part was used for many cars over decades.
