Datsun SPL 311 1600 (Fairlady)
By Miguel Caparros In the early to mid 60's Datsun was the one on the move in the US market while Toyota was still sleeping. Datsun was taking on the British car industry head on as it recuperated from WWII. Datsun was one of the companies that benefited from the leadership of W. Edwards Deming, Who was chosen by Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP) was the title held by General Douglas MacArthur during the Occupation of Japan following World War II. I remember the first time I saw an SPL 311 and my reaction to it. The quality of build seemed much better than the MG, Triumph or Alfa Romeo, given the fact that much of the technology was under license from US and Great Britain. As great as the quality of the mechanical aspects were concerned, the quality of the interior vinyl and plastics left much to be desire. In spite of that they slowly chipped away at the established manufacturers with a product of superior mechanical quality and value for the money spent. The SPL 311 line finished in 1970 with the Datsun 2000, A car that had to be taken very seriously as a performance sports car. But it was the follow up that put the final nail in the coffin of the British dominance, the 240Z, Fairlady. Driving impression of the Datsun 1600 from 1968. First thing I noticed was the size of the car, it felt bigger than an MG Midget but smaller than the MGB. The controls and switch gear had a quality feel to it and the standard Am Fm radio was completely integrated into the dash. Also well integrated was the heating and ventilation levers and switches and they had a light feel as opposed to some of the British cars that felt as if you were trying to move a rail road track change lever with a tooth pick. One stab of the gas pedal and a light pull of the choke and the car started right up and the choke was not needed after a few seconds and the engine settled to a smooth idle. The clutch was unusually light as was the shift the lever. As I took off I could immediately sense that although the steering was light it did not have the precision of the British rack and pinion and the ride motion was both soft and choppy at the same time. Getting on the power made me smile as the little 1600 had power equal to if not better than the 1800 in the MGB. But it was the great feel of the gearbox that got my attention. Both precise in movement and light in feel. Taking it through my favorite set of twisties in Coral Gables It felt good but not as well planted as an MGB or my own Alfa. But there was no question in my mind that Datsun had a winner here, specially when you take into consideration the price.

1969 Datsun 2000 Roadster Red NSmyr120812
This is an outstanding example of what Datsun (Nissan) was doing right in the American car market! It certainly had the features of the British sports cars, with the addition of great styling and great reliability! Soon the 240Z would be zooming around..a great competitor for the sports car market! The engine was four cylinders, overhead cam, 5 main bearings and solid lifters, and a five speed manual transmission.





Datsun sp311 Fairlady Roadster project
1968 Datsun Fairlady Roadster from Al's Estate. It's a neat little car I plan to get going. ( in my spare time of course ) It needs some light restoration, sorting, and reassembly. Today I spent an hour test buffing the passenger side to see how the old paint shines. This is also a camera test video. New camera has some sort of glitch. Sorry about the twitches. Still working on a resolution.

350Z / G35 VQ35 Oil catch can / PCV Valve Fitting and Delete Kit for oil consumption problem
VQ35 motors PCV system have been found to suck oil into intake manifold. When engine is modified to make more power the increased crankcase pressure allows the possibility of more oil getting into intake manifold. Oil sucked into intake manifold will get into combustion chamber causing fuel dilution, increased compression which will increase knock numbers. This kit is designed to remove PCV valve, add a breather to right valve cover and cap the port to the intake manifold. A very simple crankcase breather for your N/A built VQ35. This kit will help relieve built up crank case pressure from lightly modified VQ35 motors. Also removing the possibility of oil getting into intake manifold from PCV valve. The kit comes with one PI adapter fitting, one -8 straight push lock fitting, one K&N crankcase vent filter and one vacuum cap for the intake manifold port. Remove the PCV valve and hose to intake manifold, cap port to intake manifold. Remove the o-ring from the PCV valve and transfer to the PI fitting. Carefully screw breather assembly into valve cover port. When installing fitting into valve cover due note threads are very fine and easily cross thread able into valve cover. Valve covers are plastic and fitting should be tighten by hand with low amount of torque. PCV valve's are controlled vacuum leaks for engines. The removal of PCV valve will change the idle speed of the engine and the air fuel ratio. Suggested to perform ECU idle air volume relearning and have tuning of ECU checked. Fitting is for off road use and may not be legal in your state.
