Datsun 120a F2 Cherry Coupe - Today
**PLEASE TURN YOUR VOLUME TO MAX** A couple of years ago I realised that my
first car, a Datsun 120a F2 Coupe, was the only car that I've ever really
liked or wanted - So after a 20-year gap I've managed to buy and then
restore another, matching many details to try and recreate that original
car. It's been a lot of work but has turned out rather well, with a vehicle
that is a vast improvement on my rusty original. This is a short film
showcasing the car as it is today - one of only a few still left running in
the country (UK).

July 1974 Datsun 120Y 4 door Sedan, which is known in some markets as a
B-210 or Honeybee - it started life as a A12/3 speed Auto/H145 diff car -
it's now is a B310 (Sunny) A12/ smoothcase four speed and BW68 diff in it
as well as late model Australian 120Y sedan front suspension as well
the original A12 engine was seized... so I updated as much of it as I could
to Aussie late model 120Y Sedan mechanicals

A walk around my Datsun 120y Coupe and start-up with idle. Suggestions welcome
This was just after a nice tune of the carburettor
Easy way to tune the carburettor on a datsun 120y:
1. With the engine fully warm turn the fuel/air mixture screw all the way
in and then back it off by 2 turns (and tighten the idle in about 4-8
2. Start the engine and set the idle to as low as possible
3. Slowly start backing out the fuel/air mixture screw antil the revs dont
4. Turn the fuel/air mixture screw back in half a turn
5. The idle should be higher than 1k rpm
6. Just lower this idle down to 650/750
7. You have a well tuned engine
