Index to the Datsun Roadster Parts Manual

I have found it frustrating at times to deal with Nissan Parts Departments when it comes to Roadster parts (although my current dealer is quite good). The new computerized system has helped some, but it still helps to have a guide to the original book. This index lists the diagrams in the manual and a brief description of what is in each section, along with links to the diagrams themselves. I hope it helps you out.

If you want the full gory detail of the entire parts manual, part numbers and everything, it is available in PDF format, courtesy of Leigh Brooks, at John Sandhoff's Web site. Expect to be patient unless you are on a fast connection - those are BIG files.

By the way, don't blame me for the sequence of these Sections - this is the way Datsun laid them out. I have organized this in the same way so that those people who have copies of the Parts Manual can find things by using this index.
