in prepping my 91 loyale for winter i noticed the fan failed to kick in. i jumped power to the fan and it worked so the problem was the thermo sw. i had just changed the coolant:banghead: being lazy i thought i would wire in a push fan from a xj6 that i ran in my 86gl. the xj6 fan fits great but interferes with the grill. i had a datsun 510 grill hanging around and it fit nicely between the stock lights. a buddy came by and saw what i was doing. he said why don't you stick the datsun lights in while your at it. hating the candles in jam jars that pass for head lights on the loyale i thought i would give it a try and see how they fit.
the width was perfect now the fun part how to mount them? being a 510 guy i have lots of spares kicking around and i took a complete rad support and with a couple of cuts i had mounts for the light buckets.
it took a little bending and some nylon spacers to get the hood to close and the lights to stop pointing at the sky. the hardest part was figuring out how to wire it all up. I ran leads from the stock light sockets to relays and they work like stock.
if captain hindsight was around he would have let me know that it's much faster and easier to swap the fan switch.
now what do i do with all the spare suby headlights and my stone guards from AU

Nice Power Wagon! recently I helped a friend of mine pull the motor in his M37 (the military version of that truck). I really would like to have one one day.
I also agree that the stock loyale headlights are garbage.

im down with confusing people, i will go badgeless or make my own Dats.A.ru badge.
I think you should replace the Datsun badge with a Subaru badge...
the pw looks good @ 5ft but she is ruff and is only a parts truck for my 51 B1 pw. the m37 is a far superior truck. one of my m37shttp://www.g741.org/...php?f=10&t=5162

what do you think about dropping the stock mirrors and mounting some fender mirrors. JDM style

all the loyals ive seen have two mirrors is there a stock blank off for cars with one mirror ? and was one mirror an option in righthand drive markets?
Posted 08 March 2013 - 12:05 PM
thanks peacewize pm sent.
easy mirror blank off found now on to the hard one a left side blank off from a right hand drive market
what mirror would look better on the Datsaru?

if you plan on keeping the grill chrome, I would stick with the chrome mirrors. Myself, I would plastidip the grill black and go with the black mirrors. either way it looks sweet man.

Looking at it straight on in the Pics it looks like a old citroen-meserati somewhat which is odd since I owned a couple of old 510s!!! Yeah I agree the GLs headlights Blow in the dark At least now you can put some CIBIE"s or HELLA"s in there W/80/100 Watt bulbs and see in the dark !!! Go with the short chrome mirrors-Like the saying goes....If it don"t go chrome it!!
