O2 Sensors
This covers how an O2 sensor works, how to tell if yours needs replacing, and how to test O2 sensors - both in situ and on the bench. An excellent basic guide to O2 sensors in general. May save you from replacing a perfectly good sensor. This and the next section are must reads for anyone thinking of buying either an O2 sensor or an on-board analyzer, either as an original equipment replacement, or as an add-on.

On Board Mixture Analyzers and O2 Sensors
A Discussion from The Hotrod List in 1993 and from various other sources. This is excerpted from several discussions on various types of on-board mixture analyzers and O2 sensors. This document is long but contains lots of valuable info for those who want to understand these devices or are thinking of buying or making one. Do not spend your hard earned $$ on one of these toys without reading this and the section on O2 sensors

SU Tuning - by Marc Sayer
This includes some excerpts from a car oriented email list and portions of my replies. I have expanded on the original reply to cover the subject more extensively. Applies to both British and Japanese SUs.

Triple SU setup issues

Datsun/Nissan Transmission ratio chart
This is a pretty comprehensive chart of  Datsun/Nissan transmission types and gearing. It covers most RWD transmissions from the 60s through the 90s. Explains the naming convention used by Nissan and gives oem applications or comp specs where possible. If you want to add to this chart or find any errors in it, please email me with your info.

Aftermarket Datsun Synchro issues
This is a single photo with captions that illustrates problems I found while researching this topic for a magazine article. There are a number of aftermarket transmission kits being sold now for the Datsun transmissions with brass synchros that include the synchros. Unfortunately the aftermarket synchros in those kits are not very good. The kits are very inexpensive so they are very tempting. If you do use one, toss the included aftermarket synchros and buy a set of real Nissan synchros instead. That will still be less costly than buying all the parts from Nissan, and you'll get the quality synchros (at least as long as Nissan continues to make them available, after that ... ).
