bullet Topic: 1600 valve cover
    Posted: 19 April 2004 at 1:12am

What is the valve cover that says Datsun 1600 from.I have one from years ago and it seems cool with the 521 even though I have l20b.I still have the 1600 embles on the sides too so it goes on regardless.

just curious.Thanks.

68-69 510s I think. Maybe newer? The 1970 ones I've seen didn't have the 1600. I know by '73 it just said DATSUN OHC and by '75 is was NISSAN OHC.

Hey 'fish,
'68 510's had the 1600 valve cover with the 1/4 turn oil cap (no threads), '69 510's had a very similar item but now used the threaded oil cap and '70 on thru '74 used the common "Datsun" cover. Early L powered 521's would also count here too :)

yeah ive been under the impression that they are covers that come on the 510s.

i bought my l20b from a guy who was building it to put into a dime---   it came with a 1600 valve cover...

i just HAD to put it on! not only is it cool lookin' and rare--- but its got that cool little oil cap and i can fool people into thinkin' its only a 1600

Si I wish I could do pics.You guys are saying that the oil cap is different on some.MY v.c. says Datsun 1600 ohc.In the cool type print style letters & #s.The oil cap is a standard fit as far as I can tell.

On the subject of oil caps,I have 1 that has an S on it and that is it.Is this probably just something universal?
