i suppose what i am asking for is the info i would need to address my particular needs in a shop manual and for purchasing parts online. it's the jargon i don't really understand... a 3-series is also an E30 and why the two references? how do i find out if my model is an early or late year model... for example my Datsun 310GX was a 10/80 (Oct 1980) but was considered a 1981...and so on.
what's the best shop manual...and where to locate a used one?
great pics btw...when i get her cleaned and spiffed i'll post some of my own
