The Datsun Roadster Book is THREE Parts. Over 880 pages across all three (3) volumes! It still has 20 road tests and racing articles – most not seen in the US. It still has 44 pages of translations and pictures from Fairlady I and II. It still has 13 old Datsun Competition Bulletins including one of the very FIRST competition catalogs from 1970. In the three volumes we have over 180 color pictures and illustrations. We’ve included 3 classic Datsun Service Bulletins for more historical information. This is PART II – The Technical and Service Manual. One of the things that had been sorely lacking since the day the first roadster arrived on these shores was a good service manual that described day-to-day maintenance and service tasks in English – oh yeah, and made sense! All the manuals of the period were original NISSAN publications that were translated in the early and mid-60’s. Coming before the time of Americanization of the staff, the documents were pretty atrocious if you just wanted to adjust the valves, set the timing, replace brakes, or something like that. Of course, they did spend several pages describing how to set the clearances on the differential gears – if you were in the mood to rebuild your differential! In 1986 we began writing service manual information to include with our parts catalog. We tried to cover the major things like engine and gearbox rebuilds figuring that most people could find someone who could set the valves or change the oil. Since the original version in 1986 we have expanded the service manual and added additional topics. Each volume of The Datsun Roadster Book is sold separately so you can buy what you need when you need it. Check Amazon for all three of our volumes. Thanks for you for your Kindle purchase.
