Re: 1980 Datsun 510 won't crank

In my case it ended up being the neutral safety switch, we were able to figure this out by process of elimination. The key was also the fact that over the years I had to move the gear shift around every once and a while to get it to start.

However, the 1980 Datsun/Nissan 510 has it's neutral safety switch located in the transmission. Due to limited space to work on it and no deisre to pay to have it done. We just bi-passed it and start it with a toggle switch located under the dash.

Thanks for replying to this ZX driver, I had forgotten that even existed, hopefully this may help some one out down the road
