This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

I have a 1980 datsun 1200 ldv have replaced the master cylinder Bled all 4 wheels.Pedal stays low +_ 10 mm from floorboard Do not find air in the system had adjusted all 4 wheels brakes thanks


Did you properly bench bleed the master cylinder itself before installing? It must be bled or there will be air trapped inside the master cylinder itself that no amount of wheel bleeding will remove.

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

Datsun 1980 ute turning over but not firing.have checked alt,leads,sparks all ok.main fuses ok


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.

Check ignition coil, they are known to short circuit after a wash.
Try starting engine at night or in the dark and look around coil and leads for hi voltage sparks.
