  1. Hi have read other posts on the wiring but still cant get it to work. This is the story have L16 with elect dist, have found the 2 wires in the engine bay if i hook one on the positive of the coil and put the other wire through a test lamp then the on to the neg side of the battery then the tacho will work. The test light pulses with the rpm. What do i have to do to get this to work? :wallbash: I have reved the car past the red line and f%$ked the test lamp as well any info is appreciated.

    Orginal Paint Colours 1600 Sss

    The two tone paint was available as a factory 'after option '. Ive got 3 510 wagons with white roofs, all painted the same, 1 from South Africa. The other 2 Aust delivered. Roy from Top kolor , back in the 70's used to paint them for Datsun. After it was delivered. It was the cheapest way to do A/C !! As for the Green colour, ive got the code i'll try and find for you. One of the wagons is that army type of green.. Not too common in the 510, let alone a SSS. Have seen a few coupe's of late in that colour, but with white/ off white Vinyl roof.. Got any pics on where the paint changes ??
