SOURCE: 87 prelude has no fire from coil, replaced it an still same thing

check to see if the wiring harness connecting to the plug is not corroded.

also if all connections are good then your next step lies with the ignition control module.

No fire to sparkplugs

Bit late here, but I love Datsuns! First check if you are getting power to coil on the + side of coil. Pretty much a straight path from ignition switch to coil. Then pull off coil to distributor cable at the distributor and check for spark on that wire when cranking engine over. If good, rotor, distributor cap, plug wires, or sparkplugs need checked. If no spark from coil, it should be tested with an ohmmeter for proper resistance values, or swap in another coil.
Does it have mechanical points and condenser or electronic ignition?

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.

Need a diagram of the firing order for 1972 datsun 510

Turn your crank pulley and line the timing marks to top dead center,pull the distribuor cap and see where the rotor points to, thats where the #1 position is located.
