The carb fitted, is it brand new? Second hand new or bought at Eddie's? Not to dis Eddie's but for the most part carbs from them are rubbish. Get it cleaned out, focus especially on the emulsion tube(that long removable tube with a whole lot of little holes drilled in it) Primary main 105, secondary main 140 to 150.(140 more economy,150 more power) Don't go less than 140 or you'll be running too lean and burn valves. Double check your ignition timing and the vacuum line between the dizzy and the carb. Poor ignition timing also makes these engines very thirsty. Check the weights in the distributor for free movement. A good dose of Q20 into the distributor will be well recommended.
Since this little bakkie is unique to SA Id recommend trying some local forms as well, such as Carforums and Nissan Owners Forums.

Nissan 1400 consuming too much petrol. How do you adjust air ratio in the carburator


No reference to your model 1400...but if it has a carburetor the air/fuel mixture is set with 2 screws on the front side...to adjust each one...car must be running, turn each screw clockwise until your motor starts to stall...then back out (counter-clockwise 1 1/2 turns from stall...should smooth out as fine tune adjusting...each screw must be re-set this way...could also be dirty or clogged air filter, dirty carb throttle body...and need new spark plugs...probably needs the standard parts tune-up...Hope this helps.

I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

CARBURATOR OF NISSAN 1400 BAKKIE


the ball bearing will be a non return valve for the accelerator pump. When the pump is moved to suck in fuel from the bowl it lifts of the seat and when the pump is pressed down the force of the fuel closes it off and the fuel is squirted in to the manifold.

Nissan 1400 very heavy on fuel


. Check cat converter for failure. tyres will use up fuel especially if the pressure is low. Checkf fuel pressure in the manifold. Check the air cleaner and replace if old. If cpu fuel injected check for fault codes check that it goes into overdrive if an auto.

When my bakkie gets hot then the petrol doesn't go through the carburator


Test your fuel system for VOLUMETRIC FLOW. Measured amount of fuel for x amount of time. Not sure what the spec is, but what happens is a filter in the tank clogs and restricts flow (I assume you have replaced the fuel filter...).
So the system often can pass the fuel pressure test, but not the volume test.... It is easy to observe.

Fuel pump part no nissan sunny model 1985 ????


Hi Ahmed, If the vehicle is fitted with a carburetor and a low pressure fuel pump, you can have a universal electric pump fitted and fit it into the fuel line between the tank and the existing pump, (left in place). If the diaphragm of the existing pump is damaged and allowing fuel leakage into the sump, remove the mechanical pump and have a plate made to cover the opening, make a gasket and fit the plate in place of the mechanical pump. If the vehicle has fuel injection, a Toyota hi pressure delivery fuel pump can easily be fitted into the fuel tank in place of the original. Regards John
