Number 4 cylinder will not fire on my datsun 620 with a l20b engine


If you havent fixed it yet then .
Then either your distributor cap is cracked/points set to 012" /lead no good/plug no good/tappet totight set tappets to 012" [No 4] cylinder/burnt out exhaust valve/ worn or broken piston rings [No 4 ]or a leaking inlet manifold gasket.,,or sometimes burnt or blown head gasket

Replaced timming chain now does want to run correctly bad fumes


It sounds like the timing chain was replaced one tooth off. The only other option if the timing chain is correct would be to adjust the ignition timing. Since the timing chain was replaced I would think it to be the first problem.

I'm getting a Datsun 510 1970 and I was wondering what's the mpg on a l20b?


18-20 city 22-25+ highway. Instead of the L20b, you would be way ahead to install an SR22DE or DET (Turbo) motor. Much better engineering and horsepower. IMHO

Carburetor


Probably same. Datsuns are famous for keeping the same carburetors (and other parts, as well) with only minor year to year modifications. My '79 Datsun pickup 620, right now has a carb from a '73 Datsun 620 parts truck, runs okay-for a hitachi.
Check ebay for new, remanufactured, or used- pretty sure they would have a lot of carbs for your car. The best place to buy new or remanned carburetors, especially for our older datsuns, is rockauto.com. Very nicely planned (and huge!)catalog, too, with easy access.
Don't know about your 280Z, but with the 620's 2.0Liter engine(L20B), weber carburetors are all the rage now for them. They are excellent carburetors and very reliable, even claim to increase mileage over stock, but for $250, I guess I'll have to motor on with the old hitachi a bit longer.

1971 datsun 510 engine will not stop runnng when key is removed?


There are two things you can do.1. Set the timming back a little or 2. Start using a gigher grade of gas.
I use to have one of these cars and had to do the same thing.

Firing order Datsun 710 (4cyl. L20B engine)


Remove the rocker cover.
Turn the engine until it's at TDC on No.1
Both No.1 rockers should be loose.
Remove distributor cap and look where rotor is pointing, this is No.1 plug lead.

Im chasing new bolts to reconnect my manifold to the block/engine. Any assistance greatly appreciated.


if it is a l20b engine it is about a m7 or m8 or m10 with a 12mm head about 28mm long or longer with a lock washer and the big washer that holds the exhaust and intake be careful the head is aluminum so it wont handle a heavy torquing
