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

Datsun/Nissan Transmission ratio chart
Aftermarket Datsun Synchro issues
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.
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 ... ).
