If you have spark, then make sure the fuel is getting to the engine. If you have spark and fuel, then you probably have a timing problem. This can range from a broken or jumped timing belt to just an out of time distributor.

Datsun 1600 main fuse


The small pigtail coming off the positive battery cable should lead to a fusible link (about 3 inches long, with a connector on each end, wire may be green). If not a fusible link, look for a small case-like box mounted to car frame, containing a fuse element strip, also right after or around the battery.

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?

I washed engine on my 1997 XH ute now it wont start


You probably got water into the distributor and spark plug leads/spark plug caps.
Dry them out and this should solve your problem,

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.
