My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at classicdatsuns@gmail.com , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

Engine Deconstruction Pt 3 (removal of alt, a/c unit, relay pulley, starter) Monday - Sept. 19, 2011

Today is Monday Sept. 19th.  Respect for the Elderly Day (in Japan).

These pictures are actually from a few days ago but I was able to make a little bit of progress before going to bed.
The A/C unit was pretty heavy.  It took me a while but I finally found the bolt needed to remove it buried in grease on the other side.  I'm happy it's out.

This is the debris shield.  Keeps stuff from jumping into you engine (well almost).

Here's that relay pulley that was next to the front of the A/C unit.  Glad that's out of the way.

Removing the starter.  

There it is.

It's looking a little cleaner and I'm almost ready to pull the engine.
